Samsung Galaxy Note 10: first impressions

THE first thing that jumps out at you about the two new Galaxy Note 10 smartphones is their sheer size.

Samsung's premium line of phablets will see two new entries this year, splitting the line in two - One with a larger screen and the other slightly smaller.

It comes a handful of years after Apple did the same thing with its iPhone line.

But size isn't everything - both are packed to the gills with new features geared to making previously deskbound activities like high-end video and photo editing and PC gaming a truly mobile experience.



Test models unveiled to the media in New York this week were lighting fast in their response to the S Pen as well as touch.

That's no surprise given the powerful 64-bit Octa-core processor running the devices under the screen.

New photo and video features, which continue to take advantage of advances in augmented reality technology and image filters, are sure to become favourites of influencers.

Both devices are surprisingly light to hold and resistant to the endless smudges of fingerprints.

With the market growing increasingly competitive, the Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ are sure to give Samsung an edge heading into the end of the year.
