Crazy good deal brings brand-new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 down to $515
The Galaxy Note 10 is a bit of an odd duck, with a significantly smaller and lower-res screen in tow than its Plus-branded brother, a similarly hefty disadvantage in the battery capacity department, three instead of four rear-facing cameras, 8 instead of 12 gigs of memory, inferior fast charging technology, and most curious of all, no microSD card slot.
Note 10+, normally fetching a whopping 950 bucks compared to the $1,100 starting price of the plus-sized Snapdragon 855 powerhouse.Despite this relatively lengthy list of shortcomings, the 6.3-inch handset is not much cheaper than the 6.8-inch
Of course, it's not exactly unusual to see the Note 10 (and the Note 10+) deeply discounted by the world's largest smartphone manufacturer, as well as various third-party retailers, be them authorized or... not so much.
