Samsung Galaxy Note10+ Review

Introduction & Specs

A year ago when I reviewed the Galaxy Note9 I remarked that it was “the most feature-packed smartphone that you can buy right now”. This year, the Galaxy Note10+ seeks to carry on the Note lineage by being, once again, the palm-sized conduit for Samsung’s latest and greatest mobile technologies; and on paper – save for a couple of omissions – this truly is the no-compromise phone, and then some. But does it stack up in real life? More importantly, how does it compare to last year’s Note9 and other, cheaper flagships, and does it justify the heavy starting price of S$1,598?
