    I just bought 2pcs Note 10+.

    The compass is very unstable on both, it always jumps 5 to 10 degrees fast form side to side. Even after calibration.

    Samsung says it can happen to a mobile phone that has so many features.

    I think that's not a good enough reason on a mobile phone that costs so much. all other mobiles I have had have worked this well.
    My girlfriend has note 9 and it does not have this problem

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Is this with a case on or a case off?

    Compass is extremely stable on my Note 10 plus.

    Do you have a case with a magnetic in it? If so, that can be a big problem. I have a S6 tablet and the Samsung case makes the compass useless.
    Remove the case and it is just like my Note 10+, Perfect.

    Happens with and without case. And I use the original view-case.

    I've tried it out in the wild as well to eliminate anything that affects it.
    Both phones behave this way all the time.
    But not ny girlfriends Note 9 it is perfectly stable.

    I added a GIF that shows how it behaves. have tested with multiple apps and the built-in. so it's not the app's fault
