And that is how I feel about the Galaxy Note series

You want the most technologically advanced phone (at the time), and the S Pen is a bonus.

The new S Pen has so many new features like handwriting to text conversion and air gestures that it will change the 69/31 proportion for the Note9 – possibly to 30/70 in the S Pen’s favour.

The new 45W charging (OK you need to buy a 45W USB-C PD charger) gives 0-100% in 30 minutes. I use Qi charging, so my Note is always ready, and I usually get two days from it at a pinch. Still, it is impressive.

Link to Windows: The Galaxy Note10 integrates Link to Windows directly into the Quick Panel. With one click, users can connect to their Windows 10 PC. There, they can see notifications, send and receive messages, and review recent photos without pausing to look down at their phone.

And that camera – it is pro-grade. The 6.3-inch Note10 and 6.8-inch Note10+ have three rear cameras (16MP Ultra-wide, 12MP Wide and 12MP telephoto). The Note10+ has a TOF 3D sensor for depth vision – it will even measure things and take 360° 3D images. Add to that live focus, special effects and zoom-in mic and video recording in 4K has never been easier. The S Pen can is an editing tool as well.

GadgetGuy’s take – Samsung Galaxy Note10 is the most advanced phone on the planet

It is an important and very influential device for Samsung. It is the best-of-the-best and features flow down to the next Galaxy S and A series.

Naysayers are pointing to the loss of the 3.5mm audio jack and the loss of storage expansion on the Note10 (not Note10+). Given the configurations and pricing the Note10+ or 5G offer the best features and value.

Add to that the pre-order bonus of AKG’s top-drawer $499 ANC headphones and Samsung’s trade-up offer – these phones become surprisingly affordable.

Telstra, Optus and Vodafone offer the Note10/10+/5G at 24-36-month interest-free terms when you take out a post-paid plan.

Unless you have your heart set on a 5G (and you probably won’t be able to get 5G reception anyway) or number share with a Samsung Galaxy or Active watch, it is far better to buy the phone outright and go on far more economical pre-and-post-paid plans from Woolworths, Aldi or Boost.

For me – it is not just the next generation. Camera and handwriting recognition alone are the reasons to upgrade.
