Which one would you get: Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy Note 10+?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 duo has just dropped and that’s one hot pair of devices! The regular Note 10 brings the S Pen experience in a super-compact package, giving fans of small-ish phones something they’ve been craving for years. The Note 10 is just a smidgen bigger than the Galaxy S10, but still has a generous 6.3-inch display, which will make it a very balanced and ergonomical device.

However, it has some drawbacks — no microSD card slot, a 1080p screen, and it lacks the depth camera that its bigger sibling sports.

The Note 10+ is as big as last year’s Note 9 but manages to squeeze in a bigger, 6.8-inch display thanks to its smaller bezels. It comes with a second storage tier — 512 GB — and offers an expansion slot for microSD cards of up to 2 TB. It has a QHD+ (2440 x 3040) screen, and a special DepthVision camera to assist in Augmented Reality and Portrait Mode.

So, price aside, which one of these two would you like to get? The compact Note 10 or the super-charged Note 10+?

Note 10+ is truly the next note.. Normal note 10 doesn't make sense.. Although it's light weight which is a good thing

I just as I thought the both have and S pen maybe I read the prior article wrong. Cant be a note without a s pen. Note 10 + all the way for me once Samsung starts discounting it in a couple of moths.

Note 10. I dig the ability to have the S-Pen in a much more compact form factor.

That said, with the 5G 10+ only on Verizon for now, the Note 10+ is also a skip, along with the iPhone 11 Max. If AT&T gets the 5G Note 10+, count me in. I’m not buying anymore 4G phones.

Why Note 10 has no SD slot and only 1080P? They wanting people to just go for the plus version?

Why would they build a phone, just to make people avoid it? It would make more sense, just to not build it. What they’re doing is called........wait for it...........wait...............wait..............​....giving options.

I can see where JRod is coming from though. This isn’t like the S10/S10+ where the only difference is the screen size and the addition of one extra front camera. There are a lot more differences between the regular Note and Note Plus that I think Samsung wanted to be there so people think: “If I just spend an extra $150 I can get this better phone”.

I think the key differentiator really is the size. The Note 10+ is a big honkin' device. Is it the better device? Absolutely. But even with the difference, I would still take the regular Note 10 any day just to have something easier to use and pocket. I'm pretty sure that's the main choice Samsung is going with.

Some people may want the much smaller, much lighter version. Also, in theory, with only 1080P screen, the phone will be faster. But, I do think there is actually a significant upgrade for the extra $150.

I choose the one with stunning bells and whistles - no less 10+, but for now I stick with Note9.

OnePlus 7 Pro. This year's Note 10 a disappointment.

You come to the note for the spen, if you do not want/need that feature, of course there are better alternatives.

I don't give a fly about 5G, audio zoom or 50 cameras and their quality! What I want is the SD card slot! Now only the premium of premiums has that? What about the 3.5mm jack? Most of the time my phone has the headphones AND the charger connected AT THE SAME TIME! Sammy, you nailed the design, but for fk sake, you've ruined everything the Note stands for! I guess I'm going to get the Note 9 after all.

If you're a note user, why would you buy a baby note?
