I upgraded from S10 to Note10+, it's not too crazy (just a little. Yes the speed is amazing with super fast storage and more ram, this phone flies! I also like the camera hole in the middle a bit better. And the overall design, I prefer the boxier look and feel of the Note series phones.
I considered going to the note10 pro, however i decided to keep my s10+, the phone is wicked fast and cant beat having 1tb of memory and being able to add an additional 500gbs, ill be keeping this s10+ till it dies, i dont like how samsung jumped on the "kill the headphone jack" bandwagon... people tell me to move on its 2019... but i use my wired headphones alot im not giving up my wired headphones ! Lol
The design, battery life, and just being able to know my phone has a ton of features a lot phones don't have makes it a win in my book. Whether I use them often or not.
I switched from Note 8 to Note 10 (skipped Note 9 after trying it for a week and found no excitement)
I like how Note 10 is now lighter and smaller, easier for someone like me with small hand to hold with one hand, and a better camera.
But I really hate it without headphone jack since I have to use headphone at work and home, I keep a set of headphone basically everywhere, but now I have to remember to bring my headphone with me, unless I decided to spend extra and buy extra 3 pairs of new headphones.
Another thing is, I travel a lot.
Now neither the headphone or cable to wall charger (USB C) can fit to anything plug in airport lounge or on the plane, so I have to bring 2 sets of everything... Which is very stupid. First time I travel I didn't even realize it's USB C until I needed to charge my wall at the lounge and all their plug is the regular USB..
It's a mix of love and hate to this phone. Lol
I have owned every version of the Note except the original 2011 Note and the Note Edge. It just gets better & better! Not only the massive screen and similar specs, but my fat fingers don't like to hit what I'm aiming at... so I can tap, select, type and control things with surgical precision using the S Pen. A day probably doesn't go by that I don't use at least one of the S Pen functions: whether it's Smart Select to grab a picture or other part of a web page to share; or Screen Write. Even though I don't write anything, I can scroll-capture multiple screens of a conversation into a single, long photo. I can even jot down a phone number, address or other quick note without taking the phone out of standby.
The new Notes, starting with the Note 9, have a Bluetooth S Pen that allows me to control the camera shutter, and even my music, with a simple press of the button! That is so nice: I'm reading an article in my browser, S Pen in hand to scroll, and a really annoying song comes on. Instead of swiping down on the screen to access the music quick controls, I just double-press the S Pen button and... SKIP!
I don't use a lot of the Note 10+ active motion commands, as I find the accelerometer clunky. That may get improved in the coming UI 2.0/2.1 upgrade and let's hope so. I don't use AR Doodle because... why? It's a gimmick to me. But to anyone who has a Note device and doesn't absolutely love their S Pen, I say one thing: you're not using it enough. Once you understand the sheer power that S Pen gives you, you will probably order a spare just in case yours breaks or gets lost - because you won't want to be without it.
