    Initial reviews of the Samsung Galaxy S10+camera aren't jaw-dropping.What's the point of having 4 cameras if the single Google Pixel camera is better? (and I rarely use the camera on my Note 9 !). I will definitely get the Note 10 but would rather receive info from Samsung that would raise my hopes of getting much better battery performance, Fast Charge 3 or 4, greater S Pen functionality and a better infra screen FPS. PLUS QUAD DAC. ALSO NVMe.

    Depends on the situation, pixel camera I can see doing better in low light and still but the Samsung has better video and wide angle for the rear which the pixel dont have ,not to forget pro mode with more control which pixel dont have either. So there will be plus and minus on both sides

    I oten use my Note9 to review pictures taken on my Nikon D7200. Spare me with more cameras in a phone and get the things right the Note 9 is supposed to do: productivity.

    A foldable display with SPEN support would be a dream and probably make me buy a new note. Although the price tag on such a phone would likely be out of reach for me.
    The 1000$ on the note 9 were hard to swallow already.

    Thanks for the reply. I know very little about photography and rarely use the camera.

    I do like the different focal lengths covering a vast spectrum because digital zoom just sort of sucks.

    The main camera may review as better on the Pixel but all of these phones perform very similar there. None of them are significantly better than the competition.

    The extra cameras provide additional lenses for the same reason a photographer buys more lenses for their DSLR. The telephoto lens gets you closer to the subject and a wide angle fits more into the scene, these are things the Pixel cannot do.

    Not me. $1980 for Samsung and $2600 for Huawei is WAY too much for a phone IMO. They better be able to shoot lasers and make me coffee. I do want the N10.

    I can't even verbalize how idiotic it is to buy one of these folding phones. Truly a case of having too much money that you can just afford to throw it away on a technology that is nowhere near ready.

    Good point, sometimes I forget many people buy things they can't afford.

    It's a first generation device in the infancy of its design, if it even becomes a thing. The Galaxy Fold has a tiny screen when folded with giant bezels, when it's unfolded there's still a big cutout, it doesn't fold flat, the screens have to be made of plastic which means it's going to be a scratch magnet which is a joke for a 2000 dollar phone, probably can't use normal screen protectors because of the folding, and there is an obvious fold/wrinkle when you unfold the phone. That's going to be distracting as hell in my opinion.

    The Huawei at least is a bezel-less design and has the smart idea of making the selfie camera utilize the rear camera instead so it can forego the main screen cutout, but the other issues are still there. Crappy plastic screen (that, on this one, is never protected when it's folded), obvious distortion/ripple in the center where it folds. I don't see a way they will ever fold flat because that would involve creasing the screen, so they're always going to be semi-clamshell. Not to mention the durability in general.

    I just think it's a really stupid idea honestly. I mean in theory it's an awesome tech achievement, but for daily use? Completely stupid. People complain about the Note 9 size already, so now they're going to want to carry around a half inch thick phone instead that's still roughly the same length as the Note 9?

    Agreed 100%. Never get a 1st generation of most new techs.. many times... 2nd gen much better. Screen folding... Let's see how many people have issues with screens after 1st month. Esp that Hawaei that has the screen exposed all the time. Scratch all the time I am assuming. I at least like the Samsung idea of hiding the main screen. Outside screen on fold should have no bezels or at least way smaller bezels. Make it a 5.5 inch screen and u folds to a 8 inch would be great to me. Just my thoughts tho!

    I've been a Samsung user for a long time, but I think this is my last one. Tired of the slow software updates,but more importantly, I'm tired of the curved screen. Why can't they make the screen flat again? No need for the curve anymore.

    Samsung has an S phone with a flat screen. Maybe look at that. Won't solve slow updates though.

    On Note 9 the curve has been a lot less then previous, tell you the truth I sometimes think its flat with my case lol
    Os updates are slow
    Security updates are 1 month out from Google
