If a top-notch camera is your priority, the Galaxy S10+ has slightly higher overall camera quality and offers more megapixels in its main camera, which might result in better photo detail. For those more interested in display quality, the S10+ has a higher screen resolution, which can lead to a sharper, more detailed viewing experience. However, if you prefer a device with a stylistic edge, the Note10 does not have curved screen edges, unlike the S10+. Both phones lack a 3.5mm headphone jack, but the Note10 has no SD card slot to expand storage, whereas the S10+ does, making the latter a better choice for those who need more storage capacity. They both share the same processor and have similar battery life, so performance and time between charges should be comparable. The decision ultimately comes down to whether you value higher camera quality and expandable storage over a flat screen. Give Feedback

"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."
