Samsung came up with so many new things and attributes in its unveiling of the Note 10 and 10 plus. I am personally a big fan of Samsung Galaxy S and Note series and using these gadgets for now more than five years. So this announcement just grab my attention and after searching for pros and cons of this new high-tech super giant technology wizard I decided to put it in writing where our readers can also have a first hand knowledge of this new phone.
So lets start with the specs;
New and unique in terms of Samsung using different colors and 10+ is available in 4 colors as compared to 10 which will come in only 3 colors.
Now features whole front body of the phone and almost no top or bottom bezel which is super cool in terms of curve edges, Note 10 offers 6.3 Inches 1080 P Dynamic AMOLED display and Note 10+ offers 6.8 Inches 1440 P Dynamic AMOLED display. “I love the way this phone looks and feels in the hand as cliche as it sound” Marques Brownlee said in his video.
Hole punch selfie camera now placed in the middle of the phone display which is amazingly making the device more beautiful as compared to hole punch at the top corners where most manufacturers try hiding the front camera with some gradient wallpapers.
The Note 10 comes up with a capacity of 256 GB Built-in non-expandable as no card slot available and Note 10+ comes up with a multiple of its counterpart 512 GB Built-in with microSD Card, (supports up to 1TB) which uses shared SIM slot in dual SIM model only.

As usual Samsung always provide Note series with huge batteries and this time it does not disappointed at all. Note 10 has 3500 mAh Fast battery charging 25W on the other hand Note 10+ has 4300 mAh Fast battery charging with a whooping 45W.
In terms of dollar and Pak rupees. Firstly, Note 10 has set up at $1341 / Rs: 179,999 and Note 10+ has set up at $1528 / Rs: 204,999 this is tremendously whooping in terms of PKR as now the buyers have to pay taxes and register their device with the PTA. Let us know your thoughts on this in the comment section below and share the words as much as you can.
Pros, now you can do much more than you can imagine with the S pen. Cons which were highlighted by techies in their videos on Youtube are as described by Marques Brownlee, “If you can fit an entire pen inside of a phone than you can fit a headphone jack.” yes you read that right Note 10 and 10+ do not support headphone jack. They are just kind of getting rid of this famous feature from cell phones and now Samsung have joined the Apple.
Furthermore; power button which is now not a power button anymore as the longer hold of the button will bring up the Bixby (Bixby is a virtual assistant developed by Samsung Electronics), in order to shutdown your phone you need to fetch the notification drop down where you can find power button in intangible form.
Now, the power users might want to go for Note 10+ as the difference between Note 10 and Note 10+ in terms of display, memory, storage and battery will become a significant reason. And at a later stage Note 10+ will be introduced with 5G technology.
