Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Samsung Galaxy S10 Comparison

Note 10 vs S10: one of the hardest choices to make, or is it?

It’s hard to compare the Note 10 vs S10 because the truth is that these are very similar phones and are part of the same generation of Samsung Galaxy devices. Therefore, you can expect similar performance out of both of them, especially since they’re using the same processor. But then there are the small details that differentiate the devices: the S10 has slightly higher pixel density, the Note10 comes with the S-Pen (cool yet somewhat gimmicky), the S10 has the camera cutout on the top right of the device, while the Note10 has it on the top center. Ah, and also (for whatever reason) Samsung decided to keep the 3.5mm headphone jack on the S10, but decided to get rid of it on the Note10. So if you have a really nice pair of wired headphones that you want to keep using with your phone, you may want to go for the S10 instead of the Note10.

Note10 vs S10: slightly different features, so which one should you buy?

As you can already tell, this biggest difference between the S10 vs Note10 is these additional features that we previously mentioned. And let’s be honest, none of them is going to be that big of a deal for most users. And as an owner of the Note10, let me tell you that the S-Pen is not as useful as I thought it would be. Sometimes it’s cool to write something on the device, or maybe create a sketch or abstract/modern art painting, but I find myself using it less and less. And as I mentioned before, the S10 has slightly better pixel density and resolution, but it really isn’t that big of a deal. The Note10 has a slightly bigger screen (6.3” vs 6.1”) to compensate for this shortcoming. The preferred camera cutout positioning is also a matter of preference. So which one should you buy? Honestly, just go for the one that has the better refurbished offer. Whether you buy a refurbished S10 or refurbished Note10, chances are you’ll probably be happy with either.
