    Love my note 10+. Its so refined for me. My fps scanner works perfectly too.

    Camera is really good and despite the reviews the live focus video works really well. Just keep the levels down.

    Im not gonna lie, its pretty meh for me right now.

    I never knew how much I would miss the headphone jack, I was going to get the galaxy buds, but I hear that while they are good for music, they are terrible for calls. I can deal with all of that though.

    What is really getting me is the symmetry of the phone while using the internet in landscape mode. The top part of the screen is black and I can't make the nav bar disappear. Not only does that make it look off center, but it looks rounded on the left side and square on the right. I might just end up shipping this one back and either saving my money and keeping my note 9 or getting a S10 Plus.

    I might be crazy but I think I actually prefer my s10e over the Note 10 lol. Nothing about this phone has made me feel like it's WoW yet. It's a tough call because the offer to trade in my s10e for it was killer but I may just scrap the whole thing and send it back and keep my 10e. Decisions...

    Wow, that blue looks super nice. If I didn't already have a note 9 blue one then I would have gotten this one.
    loving it more each day. sounds stupid but it's a fantastic phone.

    I personally think I'm gonna send mine back. For me it's not an upgrade over my Note 9. It is extremely similar with some downsides; the move of the power button, the garbage fingerprint sensor and the loss of the ability to unlock with the home button mostly. The only upgrade for me personally is the addition of the reverse wireless charging.

    I kinda feel the same way to be honest.

    You can zoom out to fill the video full screen, by the way FYI it's the same behavior on S10+ in terms of symmetry because of the aspect ratio of the new Samsung infinity display starting with S10. If you don't like it on Note 10 then you won't on S10+ as well.

    it was a passing thought for me too. I hate that fingerprint sensor. I like the way it worked on the note 8. I am going to keep it but still going to have to figure a way to make it work for me without the frustration of having to turn on the screen then use the finger sensor.

    I know I mentioned it a couple of times already, it was very convenient to place the finger over the scanner as I pulled the note 8 out of the pocket. it would be turned on and unlock by the time it was in front of me.

    The update Wednesday night helped the fps a lot. Still not perfect, but I can generally get it to work within a couple of tries.

    my initial thoughts...already mentioned the fingerprint sensor so I won't repeat it.

    So far I am generally happy with it once logged in. It is fast and nice. after getting it set up yesterday, I went out and ate but forgot my wallet. was able to use google pay without a hitch on my end, the cashier was another story. then went to walmart and used walmart pay. It seems to be a bit faster with walmart pay than with my old note 8. going to try samsung pay later today and still got to get my watch set up properly, it did not work at all with samsung pay for whatever reason.

    there are still a few hitches with the smart launcher I use. I might give the samsung one a shot. Still have the issue with some widgets not working and it seems there are issues with some gestures but not sure yet. still have a lot of playing around,

    over all I give the phone a b+ would have been higher if it were not for the in-screen fingerprint sensor

    You do realize that you can do the one move unlock with the n10 too right?

    First thoughts..

    The switch from the Note 9 to this 10 plus will take some getting used to. The power button on the opposite side and the fingerprint scanner no longer on the back. But it's lovely so far and no complaints.

    Mine's going back today for the same reasons. Plus loss of headphone jack probably requires a dongle that has DAC, passive ones I tried were junk.

    Yes, I just saw that, another user said we could do it, and it just so happens, I knew exactly where to go, thanks!! . I didn't know that about the S10 +. Glad that I didn't trade my note 9 in.

    The problem is its not the fact that the Note 10+ is not a good phone it simply doesn't jump off the screen as a serious upgrade..No way this phone should be $1100 dollars its simply not worth it period...What did it for me was the no headphone jack and a minimal upgrade from the note 9 and S10+

    Definitely overpriced and underwhelming..

    did not know for sure. just had not played around with it much yet to find out :-) learning a bit at a time. had to do a google search early this morning to figure out how to do a screen print for a post. that is different too.

    I'm glad to see others who are not all doe eyed and giddy.
    Studies have shown that after spending your hard earned money some people are more satisfied because in their mind they have to justify the purchase.

    I like my note 10+ sure, but it is not "amazing", it isn't a huge upgrade over my note 8, and had I gone to purchase it at the store as I did with the note 9 I probably would have left without it, as I did with the note 9.

    The hole punch was my main concern before deciding to pre-order (only the 2nd time I've ever done that), but I honestly don't even notice it, and no, I am not hiding it with settings or wallpaper.

    I like the wide angle shot, though it pushes objects farther away to obtain that view.

    The fingerprint sensor is definitely in a more convenient place for me than the note 8, but it does not work as well.

    I haven't tried any of the s pen gimmick features, nor do I plan to try them.

    The stereo speakers sound nice.

    I've stated many times that I have never used the headphone jack in any phone, so unsurprisingly I do not miss it.

    I deleted, not disabled, the preinstalled FB, games, spotify, etc. As many of you recall there was a time when that couldn't be done without root.

    There are fewer signal bars than on previous phones, though I have not noticed any negatives from that thus far.

    The powershare feature works fine as long as any case on either device isn't too thick.

    I have applied a screen protector and have lost no sensitivity as far as I can tell. I know some will look back on my comment about the fingerprint sensor and I assure you that it was not as fast as the one on the note 8 prior to applying the screen protector.

    Battery life, I don't concern myself with that due to how easy it is to charge a phone, so no comment.

    The weight of the phone even with a bulkier case is lighter than the note 8, not that the note 8 or any phone is heavy.

    The speed of the new filesystem is faster. Moving files from my sdcard to the internal storage was definitely faster than my note 8.

    I noticed that on my wife's S9 Samsung messages has the enhanced chat features, the note 10 does not even though the app is a newer version.
    Also, I experienced a glitch in the matrix last night when i was able to activate the chat features in the Google messages app, the 5 minutes later it was gone.

    Were you expecting to be overwhelmed when coming from an S10+? Most people said it was basically the same phone with the addition of an S-Pen...

    At the Sprint Store yesterday I traded my Note 9 (Very good phone, loved it) for the Note 10+

    I had the Note 9 out of the case and hand weighed both phones and I was able to easily detect that the N10+ was much lighter and while they were on the table transfering my files to the new N10+ side by side you could see that the new phone was thinner as well.

    I highly recommend peeps with a new N10 or N10+ watch this video.
    50+ Note 10 Customize tips

    Same guy had the same type video for the N9 I watched a year ago.

    Impressions:
    I got the Aura and while I know I need a case (Sammy makes some slippery phones when they are naked) man that Aura back looks awesome. So I might be in the market for a clear case.

    I have played with the new toys like 3d scanning and AR doodle. Fun, will play with them more.

    The N9 has a great screen but the N10+ just down right pops out at you. Corner to corner and I have to say the front camera hole does not bother me. I happened to have all the Band of Brothers on my SD card so I watched a few minutes and the upgrade in speakers really showed and again the screen on the N10+ just looks amazing.

    I have missed having the fingerprint sensor in the front......its back baby and it is working great!

    Sammy Sense UI seems snappy no complaints. I have a set of over the ear (I never liked ear buds) BT headphones so I am not concerned with the lack of a headphone jack.

    I will have to get used to the power button being moved. I have caught myself several times pressing the imaginary button on the right. The good news, the button is easily programmable. I figure that within a week I will forget about the button move.

    Still setting the phone up the way I want. But so far 1st impressions is....

    Hi, I got my Note 10+ 4G yesterday.
    Just noted something weired.
    When I take a call ( normall call or WhatsApp), a small area right to the front selfie camera slightly flickers, untill the call stops.
    I'm wondering whether this is fault.
    Anyone else noted this?
    It's just the proximity sensor. When on a call, if you cover it up with you finger, it will turn the screen off.

    The N8 had a weak battery due to the N7 fiasco. When I upgraded from the N8 to the N9 the difference in battery was very noticeable. With you going from the N8 to the N10 it should be a huge improvement.

    I have had zero issue with the fingerprint sensor and I am so happy having back on the front of the phone. I have not put a screen protector on my last 4 Note's. I have a case to protect the corners but I don't like the "feel" of the protectors. I have been able to turn in my previous device without a scratch on the screen as I did yesterday with my N9. It went into my hip pocket every day along with the car keys.

    Enjoy the battery life!

    I think the mistake that most people are making is thinking the Note 10+ will be a big step up from the S10+. Or the Note series being a major step up from the S series. I don't think its suppose to be and historically it has never been.

    The Note 10 is a sizable upgrade from the Note 9. It's a much larger upgrade than the Note 9 was to the Note 8.

    I've had all three. I've had a lot of Note phones.

    The Note 9 was touted as "The super powerful Note." They touted the all day battery, the camera shutter button in the spen, the new spot for the finger print scanner and the scene optimizer. That's all I can think off at the moment. The front and the back was identical, the feel of the phone was identical. The cameras were identical. They both had Samsung Experience on it as well, before One UI. Now the Note 8 did only have a mono speaker and the 9 had stereo speakers.

    The Note 10 feels different, looks different. Better craftmanship. Wide angle camera vs the dual camera on the Note 9. Faster charging, longer lasting battery, better looking spen which is subjective of course. Lighter phone and a lighter spen and a more feature packed spen. Also a wireless charging for your headphones and smartwatch.

    It may not be a big upgrade to you but it's one of the biggest jumps for a new generation Note.

    I love mine. Sure it's very similar to the note 9 but I absolutely love the smaller size without losing very much screen size. So far my better seems to be about the same as my 9
