The smaller footprint is infinitely more manageable and enjoyable. Unfortunately, opting for the smaller Note 10 means missing out on a few features you'll only find on the pricier Galaxy Note 10+, including more battery life, a MicroSD card slot for expandable storage, more RAM, faster charging, an...

The Note 10 still represents the culmination of almost eight year’s worth of smartphone innovation. However, the Note 10 still suffers from the same key criticism I had of last year’s phone. Samsung’s notetaking phablet is merely a phone of incremental upgrades – with a few minor tweaks in a couple...

By switching to two display sizes, Samsung is taking a step its customers will like, because not everyone needs such a huge smartphone. The small Note 10 should prove to be the more popular in the end - probably also because of the lower price. Both new Galaxy smartphones - with the 5G version we ar...

The display here is gorgeous; the design remains the best of any Android phone and the functionality of the S Pen offers something you can’t get elsewhere. I also really like the slightly smaller form-factor used here.

Samsung backs up the Galaxy Note10 with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your Galaxy Note10 has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Samsung support or the retailer you purchased the phone from.

The smaller footprint is infinitely more manageable and enjoyable. Unfortunately, opting for the smaller Note 10 means missing out on a few features you'll only find on the pricier Galaxy Note 10+, including more battery life, a MicroSD card slot for expandable storage, more RAM, faster charging, and support for 5G. For our money, the Note 10 is still the better overall package, but it's a shame you'll have to forgo a lot more than just screen real estate if you pick it up over the bigger Note 10+.

The Note 10 still represents the culmination of almost eight year’s worth of smartphone innovation. However, the Note 10 still suffers from the same key criticism I had of last year’s phone. Samsung’s notetaking phablet is merely a phone of incremental upgrades – with a few minor tweaks in a couple of places, and not all of them are for the better. It may still be at the top of the class, but with the lack of a 5G variant and that avaricious asking price, the Note feels like an upgrade that’s increasingly hard to justify.

By switching to two display sizes, Samsung is taking a step its customers will like, because not everyone needs such a huge smartphone. The small Note 10 should prove to be the more popular in the end - probably also because of the lower price. Both new Galaxy smartphones - with the 5G version we are strictly speaking three - have fine technology and many smart functions to offer. Samsung has once again upgraded the S-Pen in particular.

A 6.3-inch display-toting device with a few compromises when compared to the larger Plus model

from TrustedReviews

The display here is gorgeous; the design remains the best of any Android phone and the functionality of the S Pen offers something you can’t get elsewhere. I also really like the slightly smaller form-factor used here.

Bigger—and smaller—than ever before

from Android Police

The small Note10 really only makes sense to Note-diehards looking to downsize... which is extremely counter-intuitive given the Note has always been about being big. Then again, maybe Samsung knows something about its customers that I don't. It still seems like too little phone for too much money.

A smaller Note experience

from Pocket-lint

A Note with a smaller screen, but all that S Pen performance. There have been some compromises made to this flagship device to present a smaller model, but in reality, if you've always thought the Note was too big for you - you finally have a smaller and cheaper device to choose.

Small, powerful, and missing power user features

from Digital Trends

The size, shape, and the look of the Note 10 are enough to make me want a Galaxy Note device for the first time in the series’ history. I’ve never liked carrying around a large phone, but picking up the Note 10 felt like picking up a Galaxy S10.

Since its launch in 2011, Samsung’s Note line has always embodied the epitome of what the South Korean manufacturer has to offer in the smartphone space. Unsurprisingly, that hasn’t changed with the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, the latest entries in the long-running series of smartphones. Samsung’s expected iterative cadence of yearly updates is in full force with the Note 10 and the new, larger Note 10+.

In many ways it’s a Galaxy S10 with a pen. But now that pen is also a Bluetooth controller as it was with the Note 9, yet it’s even more versatile. The fact the phone isn’t silly big and chunky like so many of the current flagships and previous Notes is a breath of fresh air and maybe, just maybe, more people will be drawn to the pen-toting, sharp-cornered beast of moderate proportions.
