Design, display and durability

Inevitably there are many similarities between these Samsung phones, but the S20 Plus is smaller, lighter, and has a more rounded design than the Note 10 Plus. Both have curved glass backs with a set of cameras on the upper left, although the S20 Plus's camera module is much larger. The front of each phone is almost completely full screen, only invaded by a drilled camera hole from the front up in the center. Samsung boasts a slim body with the S20 Plus, which is an achievement, but the Note 10 Plus wins in the choice of color: we love that Aura Glow finish.

The Note 10 Plus's display is a larger fraction and is certainly more square, but the S20 Plus has a higher pixel density and, more importantly, supports a 120Hz refresh rate. That's twice the Note 10 Plus refresh rate and means the S20 Plus feels silky smooth and responsive. It is a feature that game fans will be particularly interested in.

Both phones are IP68 rated, which means they can survive up to 30 minutes submerged in fresh water without suffering any damage. Glass designs make protective covers a sensible idea.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus

Performance, battery life and charge

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus battery

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus is a very powerful phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage in the base model (you can also opt for 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage). However, the Galaxy S20 is powered by this year's Snapdragon 865 chip, which offers around a 20 percent speed boost over its predecessor, and that is paired with 12GB of RAM and a 128GB option or 512 GB of storage. Both phones allow expansion through the MicroSD card.

Things are evenly matched when it comes to battery life with a slightly larger 4,500 mAh, on the S20 Plus, versus a 4,300 mAh battery, on the Note 10 Plus. Both are sold with 25W chargers, but you can buy a 45W charger for the Note 10 Plus to slightly increase the cable's charging speed (we're talking about a few minutes). On both phones you will find support for wireless charging and reverse wireless charging to recharge other devices.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus


Back of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus

The S20 Plus has won the last two categories, but it has been by the narrowest of margins. However, in this category the gap widens. Both have triple-lens cameras equipped with time-of-flight sensors to measure depth, but the S20 Plus has a far superior 64-megapixel telephoto lens that allows for 3x optical zoom. The S20 Plus's camera sensors are also larger to let in more light, and the phone offers support for 8K video recording. You may think you don't need 8K video yet, but it's worth noting that images can be used to create high-resolution photos. The front cameras have a resolution of 10 megapixels.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus

Software and updates

Special features

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus S Pen

Only the Note 10 Plus comes with the S Pen, which lets you scribble notes or sketch, and also serves as a remote control for things like taking group photos with you on them. Features like Samsung's desktop DeX mode and Bixby assistant are common on both phones. The S20 Plus is distinguished by being compatible with 5G networks and includes Sub-6 and mmWave connectivity. While it's best to check with your provider before deciding whether it's worth upgrading to 5G right now, as coverage is still very limited, the 5G connectivity option might be nice to have in the future, especially if you plan to stick with it. the phone for years to come. There is a 5G version of the Note 10 Plus, but it costs $ 200 more than the regular Note 10 Plus.

Winner: tie

Price and availability

In the United States, Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is available from March 6, 2020. Prices start at $ 1,200. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus is already widely available since the end of 2019 and starts at $ 1,100, although you should find it a little cheaper than that if you buy it second-hand or in retail.

Overall winner: Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus

As always, the newest phone wins. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus has a more powerful processor, has a better screen, a larger battery, an improved camera and 5G connectivity. On the other hand, all these new features are improvements instead of big jumps and if you think that you are going to use the S Pen and still do not worry about 5G, then the Note 10 Plus is an excellent phone that you can buy for a little less.
