    I just watched a video and it appears that the power button doesn't turn off the phone. It just activates bixby no matter how long you hold it down. You have to pull down the notification tray and use an on screen icon?!?

    That's INSANE AND A DEAL BREAKER..what happens if the screen malfunctions? You're screwed.

    Was going to trade in my S10E for $600 and get the Note10 for $350, but this is a no-go now. Not for essentially an extra 2GB of RAM and an s-pen. Writing this in case others didn't know about this and would reconsider based on this.

    You can remap it to long press for power. Also, pressing volume down and side button will power off.

    There is a setting to change the use of the button.

    Go to about 18:30 or so. It shows them hitting the onscreen power button, then there's a button at the bottom of the screen to go to the settings page to remap the button. I saw a much more in-depth one on it, but can't seem to find it right now. If I do, I'll post it here as well.

    Take a look at the photos posted by Corvette in More Best Buy demo pics. There's a photo showing options to remap the side key also. Go get your Note 10 😉

    Do people actually power their phone off that much? It's a matter of swiping down and hitting the power button, not a big deal IMO

    Maybe someone can help,on my S10+ when I finish on my phone I hit the power button to lock the screen and put it in my pocket. How would we do that on Note10/10+?

    This is a millisecond action as I move my phone to my pocket.

    The power button is now on the left.... Where Bixby used to be. But it locks your phone just the same.

    Yup. When the Bixby button first appeared in the Note series, the forums were flooded with angry comments about the useless third button. But now that it's reverting to the previous two-button arrangement, people are panicking.

    Not me.... Going to set it up as a standard power button and forget it. Might use it as Google assistant button with an app.

    For those confused, quick press of the power button will still turn the screen on/off (or lock/unlock). You can customize what double press or long press does now (the latter usually reserved for power options (power off, restart,emergency mode) and now available to do Bixby). The power menu toggle on the notification bar has been there for a few iterations on Samsung phones (and it's more useful now if you choose not to assign the long press action to that).

    Even though there is an option to remap the power button to power off the phone, I usually have device care automatically reboot the phone once a week and can be scheduled to any time/day. So, I rarely power off the phone manually.

    Went ahead and traded my S10e for $600 at best buy and bought the Note 10 unlocked for $350. So far so good, remapped the power button as described. No regrets so far.
