Samsung launched the new Galaxy S-series, the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. The Galaxy S20 devices offer a great balance between the other models.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ also comes with strong hardware and software which lets you do more than a regular smartphone. Along with the Samsung One UI features (currently running One UI 2.1), the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ packed with the unique S Pen capabilities.
If you are planning to purchase a new phone with all-round performance, good hardware, latest OS, and 2020’s features, then, you should still consider the Galaxy Note 10+.
We think that the Galaxy Note 10+ is still one of the best smartphones you can buy right now. Here are the 6 reasons:
1. S Pen
Samsung’s S Pen is very unique, you can not use this on the Galaxy S-series or any other devices except the Galaxy Note phones.
Samsung designed S Pen to feel like a real pen (complete with a subtle pencil-on-paper sound as you write), it is great for note-taking, drawing, and navigating your phone. But, with the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, there is a lot more you can do. The S Pen on the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ can act as a remote for controlling your camera with gestures and flipping through presentation slides. You can read more about the S Pen here.
2. One UI
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 10 series with the Android 9 Pie, but after that, the devices have received the One UI 2.0 and One UI 2.1 recently, both based on Google’s latest Android 10 OS.
Samsung’s One UI skin is more attractive and provides an option to customize as per your interest. It has many unique features, which are limited to only Samsung’s smartphone users. With the latest One UI 2.1 update, it adds several new features including, Single Take camera mode and Quick Share.
The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are eligible to receive the next version of Samsung’s own skin, One UI 3.0.
The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ have a modest battery inside. The Galaxy Note 10 has a battery capacity of 3,500mAh, while the Galaxy Note 10+ has a 4,300mAh.
With a bigger battery size, both devices are very likely to be an all-day smartphone for most people out there. The Galaxy Note 10+ is more than likely to be able to keep up for a complete day. Because of the bigger battery size, the Galaxy Note 10+ battery life is far better than the Galaxy Note 10.
There’s a good thing about the Galaxy Note 10 devices, they come with some impressive fast charging, allowing us to plug it in with the 25W charger in the box, or alternatively, a separate 45W charger (only for Note 10+). The 45W charger can only be used on the Galaxy Note 10+ and S20 Ultra. While using the 45W charger on the Galaxy Note 10+, you should be able to go from 0-100% in less than 1 hour.

4. Display and Design
The Galaxy Note 10’s display is engineered to alleviate eyestrain without color distortion. It will help you to sleep better even after late-night gaming sessions with blue light reduction and night mode. More about the display, it has a next-level, cinema-grade screen. The Galaxy Note 10 is HDR10+ certified with Dynamic Tone Mapping to deliver tone and contrast true to how it’s intended to be seen, so HDR10+ content on YouTube shows up crisp and clear. It is almost the same display that is available on the Galaxy S20 devices. You will get the hidden Ultrasonic Fingerprint scanner within the display.
It has one of the best designs on any phone available today. The Galaxy Note 10’s edge-to-edge Infinity Display is nearly bezel-less. With an infinity-O Display, the front of the Note 10 gives an expansive, uninterrupted view. With a discreet, tiny front camera tucked out of the way and bezels pushed way back, the Galaxy Note 10’s display is an epic visual experience (same front design as the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra).
