    What do you guys find the most exciting about the new Note 10? What do you think Samsung missed out on? Let us know in the comments! :)

      Killer features. Would've been good to see more info on features appealing to the Note's, and CNET's, targeted demographic. Pixel is known for its dominance in pictures, iPhone for its dominance in build quality. Note is known for its appeal to business users. Devoting an excessive amount of time to AR, picture taking and a button seems off base. Conversely, showcasing how the Note performs using PowerPoint and other features related to the business community would reflect substantive editorial decision-making and demonstrate strategic thinking.

      I like the faster wired/wireless charging, and bokeh affect on selfie camera. What they missed out on is making the phone more affordable ($770-$870), and keeping the headphone jack

      @enial100 it does! I saw it on another YouTube video. Only thing it doesn't do is it's allow you to connect to the Gear VR

      @mohammad zohorul faster charging and bokeh affect on front facing camera isn't a gimmick

      UPDATED WITH MINOR CORRECTIONS AND ENHANCEMENTS: On the plus side, Best Buy has a killer trade-in/pre-order package that blows everyone else (all of the competition) away! AND, they do it straight-up; no gimmicks or 'scams' like VERIZON. The up to $650 BEST BUY credit (depending on the age and model of your trade-in) is instant and unlike VERIZON you do not have to wait for two-years worth of monthly incremental credits. VERIZON missed the opportunity to really promote their new 5G service and do something that would MOVE PEOPLE to spend the extra $300 for the Note 10+ 5. Sadly they did not; the BOGO offer is a 'scam' wherein you get to pay $80 for the new line of service on an 'GET MORE UNLIMITED PLAN' and therefore pay $80 x 24-months = $1,920 for your allegedly 'FREE' Note 10 on the required 2-year VERIZON contract. AND, you get the credit for the BOGO NOTE 10 ($950) spread-out in monthly credits over the term of the 24-month contract. Not likely to get many takers, and for good and valid reasons!

    First impression - it's not BIGGER, it's TALLER. I had a Note 5 and so I assumed it would be proportionally larger.

    Other quirks:
    - The default messaging app had microscopic font, and no scheduling feature. But I found Message+ there and happy with that, primarily scheduling
    - The phone icon looks like it was done by a 5th grader.

      I'm going to Apple. Samsung is trying to do too much and can't get one thing right. Earbuds sucks, speakers on the phone rattles, can't connect Note 10 to Windows PC. Customer Service is the worse at Samsung, they don't speak English, never able to help and always transferring you to someone else.

      As bad as we think Apple is, they get a lot of things right. Customer Service is top notch. Their devices actually work and always perform as promise. They connect seamlessly and no buffering. Samsung has a 12 gig chip and I'm having issues - the screen sometimes goes black when trying to access my notification because of where and how they built the camera. Now he have to wait for Software updates to access features that was expected to be standard. I'm Seriously disappointed in Samsung.

                I'm getting the Note 10+ 5G I'm hyped for this phone I love how the phone has a build it screen record I also love the air gestures on the S pen (not that I'll use it much but glad is there still) I love the bigger battery I also love the design and I like some of the new camera features too.

                As for the no headphone Jack well that isnt a problem there's adapters for that so no big deal really.

                      Disappointed that Samsung,:
                      1. Lower resolution ie HD unlike QHD on Note 9

                      2. No SD card slot 😱 on Note 🔟 only the ➕ model.

                      3. No headphone 🎧 jack 😢

                      4. 5G should be standard on both models!

                      5. No 90Hz refresh

                      6. They removed Iris Scanner.  Note 8 and 9 has these and fingerprint scanner!

                      7. Ugly dot ⚫ notch 😱.  I prefer the look of Note 8 and 9 with 🔝 bezels concealing the ugly centre dot ⚫!

                      Advice: keep the Note 8 or 9 and save £1,000 💷👍

                                  My advice, go buy a note9 at a reduced price, more features especially the base model note10?

                                    Nice review, the base model will be an epic failure, why? The price a 1,000 dollar price tag. No jack, no micros/d support & a 1080p display, on a note? No way, Samsung has gotten to Appleish for my cup of tea, yikes!

                                        I see Samsung is channeling their inner Apple again so the Note 10 in particular is just a let down. The Note 10+ is over priced to Apple level without the Innovation.

                                        When Samsung does their own thing we get amazing phones like the Note 9 and S10 (all three standard, plus and E) are great phones. This just makes them look foolish for mocking their competitors.

                                            Note plus is 1700 in Australia, would love to have it but that's a bit hard to spend

                                              Samsung: "We removed the headphone Jack because it would make our devices thinner and lighter"

                                              Me: "Wait, what? The phone is still thicker than 3.5mm and how can you make something lighter by removing a hole from the phone?"

                                              Samsung: "...... shhh, we don't talk about that"

                                                Note 10 is a downgrade from the Note 9 but I don’t think it deserves the flack it gets because it’ll introduce more people to the Note but not give them a huge phone they’d find unwieldy... it’s still a great phone yes but it’s really not a Note as we know but still a great phone (but I’d argue an S10+ would be a much better value without the S Pen)

                                                      Buy the Note 9, something else, or nothing to show you disapprove of headphone jack removal.

                                                                samsung should make the note into a phablet category. Where it will become almost a tablet with all the powerful processor and graphics. In that way, you don't need a tablet anymore as an extra to bring along. The phone is basically the only consistent thing you'll bring along anywhere. To work, to school, to a party, etc. If you need a bigger screen just plug it into a tv or monitor. Now, the 10+ can be used on your laptop or pc and transfer those pictures or files between them easily and quickly. It's pretty much the future of computing.

I was upgrading from the S10+ and she had the Note 8. I must admit that I am a bit disappointed by the following 'missed opportunities,' as I will call them. Specifically, I am disappointed in the following: (1) going with the Snapdragon 855 vice the 855+ processor/chip-set; (2) going with 1-notch below the most current version of the Google operating system (Pie vs Q) (Android 9 vs Android 10); (3) going with the 25w charger in the box vice the optional 45w charger (failing to support the feature that promotes the phone and offering it instead as an option and additional price point); (4) For the offered price of $1,099 (pricey anyway that you look at it) you expect accessories that support the full-features & capabilities of the new phone. Cheers!, Rick

                                                                                • Ima live forever cause a legend never dies

                                                                                        1. Auto Start Up & Auto Shut Down Phone based on customized time (especially morning & night).
                                                                                        2. Homescreen Lock
                                                                                        3. Better Professional UI of Samsung Note & Reminder/Task
                                                                                        Dongling? Losing S-Pen means losing air gesture? No problem! But ruining & losing my icons (shortcuts) on my homescreen for accidental swipe (especially by kids & old people)? That's irritating & sounds a deal breaker. That brought me to Nova Launcher I'm still using now. • [Note9 User]
