    No. This is a Spigen case I got from Amazon as my "starter" case until I get a few premium ones

    Just received mine less than 30 minuits ago and wow what a super device will take me a few more hours to get totally set up. The camera is awesome as well as the screen which is simply gorgeous to look at. The size is perfect for me coming from the pixel 3 plus I am using a very slim Spigen case. I highly recommend this device you can't go wrong.
    Update

    The camera is not as good as my pixel 3 was but not too far off. The phone is super light and feels great in the hand.

    Going on two days and you can forget the FPS unless an update fixes it.
    The device is buttery smooth and fast they 12 Meg's of ram really show when multitasking.
    Camera is very nice but not the best but has a lot of nice options.
    Size and weight is awesome to hold just need the right case to get a good grip. For is older one the ability to increase the font sizes and the screen size is just perfect.

    Only few things I would recommend is a good case and screen protector and probably insurance.

    Not getting mine until sept 5th according to samsung. Pre ordered this past friday. I'm getting my note 10+ on my bday and my otterbox cases will be here before the phone. So not too much to complain about here. Ok, maybe wish i could've got aura glow but 512gb on sprint was sold out everywhere.

    I purchased the 512Gb Note 9 but that was mainly for the higher ram.

    In the real world I used around 70gb of the internal storage and that includes what is gated off for the Os.

    So I've gone for the 256gb Note 10+ 5G in Aurora Black storage this time as it's the same Ram as the higher storage version.

    I'm curious did you need 512gb version even with the inclusion of a Sd card if needed. Was the 256 version in stock maybe for the Aurora Glow option.

    Either way I'm sure you'll get the phone asap.

    The finger print sensor is slower compared to the Note 9's. It feels to me like a downgrade. I wish they just left it on these back.

    I've owned all Notes except the very first. After upgrading from the 9 I have similar regret to how I felt when I upgraded from the 4 to the 5 regarding some of the features that were lost.
    I like that it is lighter, the screen is great and the camera is an improvement.
    I use the SPen a lot and the motion features aren't just a gimmick to me.
    Don't miss the lack of an audio jack because I hate feeling tethered.
    The phone overall just feels crisp!

    Still getting used to the hole punch.
    Not of fan of the finger print sensor and to lose the Iris scanner is a step back for me and how I use my device. Also wish I could still use the gesture with the finger print scanner to see notifications, that was useful.

    ... My initial thoughts so far.

    Can't say I'm blown away. It's just.. good. I was worried about the signal strength after the fiasco with the S10+ and I do feel like it's weaker than my other phones in the same places, but not my a huge amount.

    Overall, it just feels...familiar. Perhaps because I had an S10+ or perhaps I'm simply getting bored with phones.

    Change Home screen only to Home and apps screens.

    Phone is great, everything running smoothly as expected. I'm really liking the live focus video and photo mode where everything is black and white other than the focus. Display as usual is stunning especially on the big 10+. Battery should be fine since I never am concerned with battery life on any of my phones with so many wireless chargers around me all the time. Using the default Samsung launcher just like I did on S10, don't see a reason to switch to Nova though I still miss the Google feed on the left.

    Overall first impressions has been great on the 10+. I also got the 10 just in case if I don't like the size of the 10+, and so far haven't felt the need to downsize. Let's see if I feel the same way after few days and initial excitement has settled down.

    Got mine yesterday. So far it's great, coming from a Note 8. Some features still not available i.e. the 3d scanning app from Samsung is still not in the galaxy app store, and the dex app download is still not available

    I am not a fan of the "power" button being on the left side. I am used to using that button to close/lock the screen. I don't care about where it is to power off the phone, since I do not do that very often. I do want to shut off/lock the screen when I put it in my pocket and I am used to using my thumb for that.

    couple of things worth mentioning, if you are migrating from another Samsung device and plan on using switch be sure to allow your new 10 or 10+ to power up and do its thing before using switch, or the device could hang up during the migration process. If that happens just reboot and start the installation again.

    one annoyance is switch doesn't attach custom sounds to anything you may have setup ie. I use a custom notification sound for Starbucks when my drink is ready...it's a clip of the guy in the movie Volcano saying "it's coffee time, java, cappuccino". It takes several hours to put the phone just the way I like it...but it looks just like my Note 9 now.
