Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus, analysis: price and features

Samsung Galaxy Note10, lock screen and Spen

There was an idea. Gather a group of exceptional features in the same mobile, to see if the conventional smartphone could become something else. And offer what the other terminals in the market could not. Ace, The Galaxy Note family was born, whose story is already well known to all.

But in 2015, Samsung made the decision not to launch the Galaxy Note 5 in Europe, marking a precedent and thus annoying the horde of enthusiasts of the family of phones for power users that the South Korean He had been congregating year after year since 2011. The company was justified by offering the Galaxy S6 edge + in this part of the planet, which in broad strokes was nothing more than a Galaxy Note 5 without S-Pen. But Samsung rained critically everywhere, to the point of being forced to finally launch the device in Europe a few months later. Now the question arises, And if Samsung wasn't wrong?And if the only thing you want is for us to realize that the fate of the S and Note series happened to come together in the same family?

Be that as it may, since that time the terminals of this saga have become untouchable, and year after year Samsung has tried to justify the existence of the Note family through new models with more and more cutting-edge features, exclusive functions – of greater or lesser use, but exclusive after all – and, in short, more and more complete mobile phones, with the aim of pleasing those who refuse to admit that the differences between the models of the S and Note series are dissipating more and more. And that that special spirit of the beginnings of the Note series began to disappear at the moment that the screens of more than 5.5 inches became the industry standard.

We arrive in 2019. Samsung, for the first time, presents two different variants of the Galaxy Note series, formed by the Galaxy Note10 and Note10 +, again following the wake of the Galaxy S series, and again trying to justify that the Note family makes sense in the middle of 2019. But, you know what? Not even having lost part of its essence prevents the Galaxy Note10 + from being the best mobile jams created by Samsung.

The best of Samsung Galaxy Note10 +

Your design

Samsung Galaxy Note10 +, Aura Glow color back

Although there is nothing written about tastes, Samsung has been nailing the design of its terminals for years. The Samsung Galaxy Note10 + is further proof of that; It is impressive how a mobile with 6.8 inch screen can become so light and thin, and in turn maintain impeccable construction quality, with glass panels that blend perfectly with the aluminum chassis – and not stainless steel as Samsung had indicated at the beginning -, and a spectacular ?Aura Glow? color that reveals new tones as the light hits the back of the phone, as long as dirt and fingerprints allow. In addition to that, the phone maintains the – in my opinion, attractive – classic square appearance of the Note, where the elegant straight lines and marked corners are protagonists at the expense of an ergonomics that looks somewhat damaged.

It's a big cell, that's clear -Good luck when trying to use it with one hand-, but Samsung has been able to maintain relatively contained dimensions taking into account the diagonal of its panel, and the fact that inside it includes a whole column-shaped hole in the that stays the new S-Pen of something more than 10 centimeters high. It is also worth admiring the design and engineering work carried out by Samsung by incorporating the front speaker at the top of the screen, that much I fear more than one will have to look several times and very closely to appreciate that, indeed, it is there.

In addition to beautiful, it is also a practical design, because it does not lack anything. Thanks to the use of glass we find features such as wireless charging and reverse wireless charging, and Samsung protects its terminal against water and dust with an IP68 certification level. The connector is also present USB Type C 3.0 at the bottom, while the upper edge is exclusively for the microphone, a small hole that helps the propagation of audio through the front speaker, and the SIM card slot and microSD card. What's missing? The headphone port, which Samsung decided to withdraw with the aim of introducing a battery with a somewhat higher capacity, and a better quality optical engine.

Another detail that Samsung has decided to withdraw – in my opinion, rightly – is the button to invoke the assistant Bixby. Instead, we only have the volume up and down buttons, and the on or off button, both located on the left edge of the phone, in a position that takes a few days to get used to, but which is finally comfortable.

His (huge) screen

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus

A good part of the essence of the Note series resides on its screen, and that of the Galaxy Note10 + does not disappoint. A huge glass panel Gorilla Glass 6 curved on both sides occupies almost the entire front of the phone, thanks to reduced margins to its minimum expression and a small hole located in the upper central part that houses the camera for selfies, with a smaller diameter than phones such as the Galaxy S10 or S10e, and that due to its position, at no time becomes intrusive since Android does not show content in the center of the status bar. Everything adds up to make the Galaxy Note10 + a mobile that seems to come directly from the future.

It is convenient to appreciate that The device arrives with a plastic screen protector applied, soft touch and not too much plastics, and unlike other models, it can be removed without damaging what is hidden underneath.

The Galaxy Note10 + screen makes it look like a mobile come straight from the future.

In the most technical, it should be noted that The Galaxy Note10 + screen, 6.8 inches diagonal and Infinity-O format, is based on Dynamic AMOLED technology, and its resolution lands at 3,040 x 1,440 pixels, which translates into a pixel density of almost 500 dots per inch. There is no lack of compatibility with HDR10 + content, support for the complete DCI-P3 color spectrum and Eye Comfort certificate issued by TV Rheinland, so that the panel is able to reduce the ?supposed? harmful effects of blue light.

Samsung Galaxy Note10 + screen

At the moment of truth, Samsung Galaxy Note10 + screen behaves excellently. Consuming multimedia content on a screen of this size and of such quality is simply wonderful, and as is customary in Samsung panels, excels in all the important aspects that must be measured when assessing a panel.

Its maximum brightness of 1,200 nits allows to see the content outside even in the central hours of the day, and OLED technology translates into optimal levels of contrast.
As the only detail to improve, I would have liked that Samsung introduced a color mode beyond "Natural" – enabled by default – , to show some more vivid colors without reaching the point of extreme saturation in the "Intense" mode. However, with the default option we get quite faithful colors.
