The Samsung Galaxy Note10 is a budget-friendly device equipped with 256GB storage, launched in August 2019. It runs on the Android operating system and features an OLED screen that is 6.3 inches in size. While it doesn't have a curved screen, it offers a high-quality display, including an Always On feature and a peak brightness for better visibility in different lighting conditions. The phone has a glass back, weighs just under 6 ounces, and is powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor with 8GB of RAM, which should provide smooth performance for most tasks. The battery life is relatively modest but should last through a day of average use. Camera capabilities are not a strong point for this device, as it has been rated poor for both still photo quality and video quality. The main camera has 12 megapixels, and there is also a 16-megapixel ultrawide camera. Notably, the Note10 comes with an integrated stylus, Wireless DeX for desktop-like functionality, and features such as an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, NFC, wireless charging capabilities, and a USB-C port. It lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 5G connection, and a high-refresh-rate screen, which might be important considerations for some users. Give Feedback

Tom's Guide

Adam Ismail, Mark Spoonauer | June 2021
"The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 delivers epic battery life and a super-bright screen in a phenomenally compact design. The regular Note 10 should be a very special phablet — precisely because there's never been one this compact and easy to live with before."
