Curved Dynamic AMOLED with centered punch-hole

Samsung’s AMOLEDs accept been the centerpiece of flagship Galaxy smartphones and the Galaxy Note10+ makes no exception to the rule. The phone comes equipped with Samsung’s new Dynamic AMOLED panels, which in marketing language just means meliorate screen than final twelvemonth’s Super AMOLEDs.

The new screen measures 6.8″ in diagonal and features a 1440 ten 3040px resolution (WQHD+) with nineteen:9 attribute ratio. Pixel density is 498ppi and makes up for sharp and vivid picture. Of class, the display supports the HDR10+ standard as long every bit the source you lot are watching from supports the standard. Currently, the HDR10+ is very limited but the feature can serve every bit future-proofing.

Of course, one would argue that the punch-hole photographic camera isn’t the way to approach full-screen design but to exist frank, we didn’t find it every bit obtrusive as it appears in renders and photos. Also, Samsung did a splendid task of making it equally small as possible.

Off to the tests, the Note10+ aced them all, as one would expect. The maximum effulgence we were able to record is 381 nits, which can become up to 794 nits in Max Machine mode, which is pretty impressive given the screen size. Bigger screens tend to be a bit less brilliant than their smaller counterparts. The Milky way S10+, for instance, scored a similar 793 cd/m2 result. This is more than than plenty to ensure comfortable use even under direct sunlight.

Nosotros can hands say that the Galaxy Note10+ features one of the best displays on the market without compromising on size. The only thing missing here is loftier-refresh-charge per unit. This would have made the whole feel complete and gamers would take appreciated information technology too. Not to mention that information technology would have fabricated the phone more competitive.


Historically, the Galaxy Annotation-series has always had good battery life and the Note10+ takes things up a notch by having a super slim trunk and a whopping 4,300 mAh battery. And despite the humongous 6.eight-inch screen, the device aced our battery tests with ease. The talk time, standby and video playback scores are fantabulous. Only the spider web browsing runtime appears to be lower than expected – it’s slap-up but information technology’south in stark contrast to the other tests.

Compared to its predecessor, there’southward a noticeable improvement in all three categories, except in web browsing. The departure between the Note10+ and S10+ is fifty-fifty bigger as the Note10+ offers better video playback and 3G talk time.

We ran our tests with the default Optimized battery style but in native WQHD+ resolution.

Our battery tests were automated thanks to SmartViser, using its viSer App. The endurance rating to a higher place denotes how long a single bombardment accuse volition last you lot if you utilise the Samsung Milky way Note10+ for an hr each of telephony, web browsing, and video playback daily. We’ve established this usage design so that our bombardment results are comparable across devices in the most common day-to-day tasks. The battery testing process is described in detail in case you’re interested in the nitty-gritty. You lot tin can check out our complete battery test tabular array, where you tin can encounter how all of the smartphones we’ve tested will compare under your own typical use.

And for the first fourth dimension in years, Samsung is finally bringing competitive fast charging tech to its flagship devices. The Note10+ supports two fast charging speeds – 25W and 45W. Both are pushed through a USB-C to USB-C cablevision complying with the USB Power Delivery 3.0 standard. But information technology’southward not all sunshine and roses.

The bad news is that the handset’due south retail box gives you the 25W wall charger then y’all will have to buy the 45W brick separately and it doesn’t come up cheap. It’southward not fifty-fifty available for purchase yet.

The expert news is that even the 25W charger is fast enough to exist competitive in today’southward marketplace. We ran our usual xxx minutes charging test from flat battery and nosotros were pleasantly surprised to run across 64%. That’s even faster than OnePlus 7 Pro’s 30W charging and falls brusque just a couple of percentage points to the P30 Pro’southward 40W SuperCharge. And keep in mind that the Note10+ has a bigger battery than both of these phones, although marginally. Nosotros can’t wait to run into how it performs with the 45W charger.

Keep in heed, though, that if you are looking for a 45W-uniform charger for your Note10+, the only safe way to go is Samsung’due south original Power Delivery 3.0 45W charger. Yet, if y’all are fine with up to 30W charging speeds, pretty much every USB PD charger would do the trick – it will get along with your Note10+ and charge it at 30W, as long as y’all take the proper Power Delivery iii.0 source complying with the PPS standard and a USB-C to USB-C cable besides.

Speaker exam (onetime, new one below)

Stereo loudspeakers have become a flagship standard nowadays so it’s no surprise that the Milky way Note10+ comes with a prepare of those. At that place’s a bottom-firing one, as usual, while the second one doubles as an earpiece. The grille at the top bezel, however, is so small that you tin barely notice it. Samsung claims that the second hole on the top side of the frame helps the second speaker. In the end, the sound comes out of iii directions – the tiptop, the bottom and the forepart from the earpiece.

Interestingly, when yous put your finger on the hole on the tiptop side of the frame, information technology doesn’t sound equally muffled every bit ane would await. Covering the earpiece does brand a difference though. Either way, we were surprised past the loudness, the quality and the balance of the two loudspeakers.

Of form, since this is a telephone, the lows aren’t equally impressive but it does a pretty good job with the mid-tones and the highs. Upon subjective hearing, nosotros tin say these are one of the best-sounding stereo loudspeakers on a phone.

In terms of loudness, it’south right upwards there with the best too. Hither are the results from our speakerphone examination and how it compares to the rest of the competition.

Speaker examination (new)

Use the Playback controls to listen to the phone sample recordings (best utilize headphones). Nosotros measure the boilerplate loudness of the speakers in LUFS. A lower absolute value means a louder sound. A look at the frequency response chart will tell you how far off the ideal “0db” apartment line is the reproduction of the bass, treble, and mid frequencies. Y’all can add together more phones to compare how they differ. The scores and ratings are not comparable with our older loudspeaker exam. Larn more nigh how nosotros test here.

Audio quality

The Samsung Galaxy Note10+ lost its audio jack so we resorted to the official Samsung USB-C to 3.5mm adapter for this test. This ways that our findings here will only be relevant to you if you use the same adapter as adapters like this ane touch the output. They don’t necessarily touch on it in a bad way just they add some other variable to the equation as some are passive and utilize the telephone’s DAC, while others are active and accept built-in DACs.

That said, the output of the Milky way Note10+ is great both with an agile external amplifier and headphones. Information technology posted excellent scores acme to lesser in both cases, with the only divergence beingness a rather small hike in stereo crosstalk.

Volume levels were very proficient too – the Note10+ didn’t set any records only was well to a higher place boilerplate in both testing scenarios.
