Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Comparison

Galaxy Note 10 vs Note 10 Plus

It isn’t hard to compare the Note 10 vs 10 Plus because these phones are meant to be very similar yet cater towards slightly different audiences. They’re both great phones, but the Note10 is tailored to be more compact, and therefore easier to use one-handed while on-the-move, but the Note 10 Plus comes with a bigger screen that will probably garner the attention of mobile cinema lovers who want a phone with a bigger screen for watching movies. The 10 Plus may also be the preferable option for mobile gamers.

The specs of the Note 10 vs Note 10 Plus are more similar than you think

On paper, you can find fairly predictable differences between the Note 10 vs Note 10 Plus. Since the Note 10 Plus is a bigger device, it has a larger battery—4300mAh vs 3500mAh in the standard Note 10. This will give the Plus at least a couple of hours of more browsing time, but be aware that the larger screen of the 10 Plus also eats up more power. And not only is the screen on the Note 10 Plus bigger, it also has a higher pixel density (498ppi vs 401 ppi) and therefore a higher resolution (1440p vs only 1080p videos on the standard Note 10). But despite the Note 10 Plus having an obviously impressive display, we feel it shouldn’t discourage you from buying the standard Note 10. Truthfully, if you put these two devices next to one another, you will obviously notice that the Note 10 Plus is bigger, but it will be much harder to notice the higher resolution and pixel density. So don’t buy the Note 10 Plus just because it looks a lot better on paper, buy the Galaxy device that best suits how you use your phone.

Which one should you buy: Note 10 vs Note 10 Plus

When trying to decide between buying the Note 10 vs Note 10 Plus, put away the specs list. Just ask yourself how you use your smartphone and if you like Plus-sized phones. If you’re a relatively average smartphone user that does a fair bit of music streaming, texting, browsing, checking the weather, and watching some short-form YouTube videos, a refurbished Note 10 will probably be more than enough for your needs. But if you watch 2-hour long movies on your device or spend countless hours playing mobile video games or reading e-books on your phone, you should perhaps consider a refurbished Note 10 Plus.
