My wife just "upgraded" to Note 10 from her Note 8 and while she agreed that she can notice the downgrade in screen resolution after she got it, but the reason she got it is the reduced physical size. Think there will be a group of people who will still get the Note 10 for its size and not really interested in specifications. It certainly feels very good holding it with a small hand like my wife's
wife got her note 10+ on wednesday. and it looks great. its a very tempting phone. this review helps further solidify that feeling. but man, i really don't want to reward samsung for removing the jack
My ONLY beef with the Note 10+ (coming from a Note 9) is that the finger print scanner seems whack. I liked wayyy better having the tactile location to place my scan so I could do it without looking. THE on-screen scan feels just... off... Like I'm pressing down hard, smudging the screen, just to unlock my phone? Nah. Other than that, this phone is freaking BAD TO THE BONE
I'm coming from a Note 9 and this is my 5th Note ever. The battery life on 10+ seems so much better, it was surprisingly awful on the 9 so I was thrilled I could trade it in for so much and take my chances on this one. I wish more phones could be like the Moto though, and allow snap-on batteries, I could go 3 days between charges on the Moto or 1 day of super heavy use with screen on almost all the time. Initially I don't notice a big increase in screen quality, etc, compared to the Note 9, which makes sense as it was all really good already. I like the slightly thinner body, and I got a skinnier case this time (10+ is Ringke Fusion, 9 is Case-Mate Sheer Crystal) so it is definitely more comfortable to hold this time. I'm going to have to get used to all the buttons being on the left, TBH I would really rather they were all on the right, or that they left the power button on the right, but yay for getting rid of the Bixby.
Battery badass. Sitting at 8 and a half hours of screen on time with 14% after 15 and a half hours on battery. Blowing my Note 9, and definitely my Note 8, out of the water.
