Digital Camera World Verdict

If you want pen-input, then the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus is the best out there, wildly out-classing everything other than its predecessor, the Note 9 in that respect. If you don’t, it’s still an excellent phone, but you could get a comparable screen and imaging experience for less money in the Galaxy S10 Plus.

The Samsung Galaxy Note-series is the do-it-all phone line combining an S Pen with power and a big-screen experience, year-on-year. A quick glance over the Note 10 Plus’ spec sheet and you won’t be disappointed. The phone outclasses the Huawei P30 Pro when it comes to RAM and storage, outguns the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G when it comes to power and according to DxO Mark, outperforms every other smartphone on the scene from an imaging point of view. With a virtually identical camera array to the S10-line though, is it really that different?
