The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ comes across as a phone very similar to the Galaxy S10 Plus, except a few new features that may or may not end up to be useful. There’s loads of reason for previous Note users to upgrade to the current one. Then there’s the smaller Galaxy Note as well that comes with watered-down features including a smaller display and form factor which might find attractive among a brand new breed of power users desirous to get the Galaxy Note experience.
Samsung has also improved the camera performance, particularly in low-light, and also the new DeX mode that currently works far better than before. Overall, the Galaxy Note 10+ seems like an incremental upgrade, however good enough for previous Note users to get a new one.
