The photos below are perfect – 10-out-of-10. The DxOMark review is here.


Superb, natural colour, great brightness and contrast and definition.

The toy dog’s fur is well defined as is Shaun the sheep’s individual wool strands. Colours are perfect.

Superb definition (the best yet), accurate colours and little noise. I am surprised that it did not use the variable aperture (f/1.5-2.4) to let in more light – it obviously has excellent low light capabilities anyway.

Night mode brightens the image by pixel binning and keeps the definition.

Camera summary: The camera is fantastic, even more so as it is set to fully automatic for idiot-proof shots. I compared these reference shots to the Note9, and there is a noticeable improvement.

GadgetGuy’s take – The Note10+ is the best bar none.

As I wrote last year, the Note9 is the best Android handset by quite a margin. On a scale of 1-10, it is an 11. Of course, until the Note10 comes along.

As I write this year- substitute Note9 for Note10.

Now, if you want the S Pen, then this is it. Otherwise, the Galaxy S10/+/5G are your choices as they share the processor and most of the camera smarts.

Samsung, thank you for doing it again, again, again… Although how do you improve on perfection each year?
