We've got a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and a Note 10+ on us, and while we are working hard on that full review, we thought it'd be a great idea to answer some of the burning questions you might have about the two hot new devices.

Just like the Galaxy S series a couple of months ago, the Note series now embarks on an exciting new journey as far as design and features go, stretching the limits of smartphone design as we've known it and setting new benchmarks for the competition to match.

Go ahead, ask us anything you might want to know about the Note 10 or Note 10+! Have in mind that questions regarding battery life and camera quality will probably be automatically answered for you once the review goes live.

Do both use Gorilla 6 on both sides? Do the photos of auto mode still have the issue of warm/saturated colors? Does the cam jpeg still apply excess of noise reduction like previous generations? How long does it take to go from 0 to 10% using reverse Qi? What are values of ISO e shutter they offer?

Does the screen protector work well with the S pen? What case(s), if any, have you tried with the Plus? How well does the fingerprint scanner work? Do you see any improvement?

How about the night mode, can it be improved? (by that i mean to add a few more seconds white it takes continuous photos)

How does the AMOLED display compare to other OLED displays in the market? And how does it compare to the previous S10?

It's more vibrant colors pop out more I have compared it to note 9. But the display seems to be similar to the s10 albeit a smaller punch hole.

Is the S Pen the same size for both the Note 10 and Note 10+?

Does note 10's pre installed screen protector has hole for fingerprint scanner? What about s10?

Is the Note 10/10+ fingerprint sensor finally as good as the OnePlus 7 Pro or is it using the same fingerprint sensor from the S10 series?

I'd like to see the 3D scanner in action. Can it scan a person? Can you attach the skeleton to a random shape and make it move? Have you exported the mesh to see how detailed it is for 3D printing?

It's a no brainer that note 10+ is the best upgrade for first time galaxy owners. Minus the s-pen, is it a big upgrade for current s10+ owner or just the same experience for a more expensive product?

Does all the "holes", the charging type c port, mic, s-pen, speakers port located at the center between front and back edges of the phones? Are they aligned perfectly? i saw ice universe said they are aligned but are they at the center between edges? (hard to explain)

how would you rate video quality (4k 30fps) compared to XS max, in day light and in low light?

Does the Note 10+ get solid reception? Apparently many with the S10 line reported random data dropouts and dropped calls.
