If you see some random person out in public doing a happy dance, do not be alarmed—chances are they own a Galaxy Note 10 device and discovered they could download and install Android 10, with Samsung's One UI 2.0 on top. That's actually been an option for a bit, except now Samsung is pushing out a finalized (read: stable) build. Before you get too excited, there might still be a wait, depending on where you live. Apparently Samsung has started delivering the over-the-air (OTA) update to Galaxy Note 10 owners in Germany, and perhaps only to those who participated in the beta. This applies to both the regular version and the Galaxy Note 10+. Who knows, though—by the time you read this,... Read more...
Deals on Samsung's Galaxy family have been plentiful over the past week, and Amazon is running a very compelling deal today for Cyber Monday. The online retail giant is discounting its Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy Note 10, and Galaxy Note 10+ smartphones and throwing in a free set of AKG N700NC headphones.

We are all waiting for Samsung to eventually unveil its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S11, but that will not be for another few months. In the meantime, Samsung is introducing something a little different. It's a PC game streaming service for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 (initially) called GalaxyLink Play, which will also be made available to other Galaxy phones at a later date. From Samsung's vantage point, cloud gaming "has dominated the industry in 2019." I don't agree with that assessment, even when factoring in Google's recently launched Stadia platform, which has had its share of hiccups in the early going. Regardless, Samsung views GalaxyLink Play as a new service that goes... Read more...
In a galaxy far, far away, Samsung has switched on its lightsaber in a battle that pits good versus evil. Well, not quite... but Samsung has announced a new Star Wars Special Edition of its newly released Galaxy Note 10+ flagship smartphone, which will launch next month in select global markets. The smartphone is branded to coincide with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which hits theaters in the United States on December 20th, 2019. The Star Wars Special Edition bundle comes in black with red accents; even the S-Pen is decked out in red, which is quite a nice touch in our not so humble opinion. Other details that set this Galaxy Note 10+ apart from "lesser" counterparts... Read more...
In mid-October, Samsung opened up beta access to Android 10 and its new One UI for Galaxy S10 owners, notice of which came by way of an official announcement. Now a month later, Samsung is doing the same for Galaxy Note 10+ owners, only without an official announcement (at least at the time of this writing). This was first brought to attention by XDA Developers forum member tlbland0426. The user noticed Samsung had started accepting registrations for the Android 10 beta in the Samsung Members app, on unlocked Galaxy Note 10+ models in the US (SM-N975UI). According to SamMobile, beta access is also available for regular Galaxy Note 10 owners (unlocked) in the US, not just the Galaxy Note 10+.... Read more...
It was discovered recently that a cheap screen protector was all that was needed to defeat the in-display fingerprint reader included on the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone family. Samsung has now announced that it is rolling out a fix for the device, at least initially, as a South Korea exclusive (its home market). But don't worry; Samsung has promised that it will soon be rolling the fix out globally. The Galaxy Note 10 also suffers from the same fingerprint scanner failure as the S10, which presents itself when a silicone screen protector is used that has a texture on the inside. The fingerprint scanner reads that texture as the fingerprint and unlocks the phone. The flaw surfaced last... Read more...
Google recently launched its Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, which are its two newest flagship Android smartphones. The Pixel 4 family brings a number of new features to the table including 90Hz displays, Face Unlock, and radar-driven motion/gesture sensing tech, but one of the most talked about features of any Google Pixel phone to date is its namesake, the camera. Or in the case of the Pixel 4, its cameras, plural. While our full review of the Pixel 4 XL will be forthcoming shortly, we thought that we'd give you a brief preview of what this new high-end smartphone has to offer with its new cameras. For the first time ever, the Pixel is offering two rear cameras: a 12.2MP primary sensor with an f/1.7... Read more...
Lest there be any doubt about the Android 10 One UI 2.0 beta landing on Galaxy Note 10 devices in the near future, including the Galaxy Note 10+ and Galaxy Note 10 5G, Samsung Korea confirmed it is "coming soon." This is actually the first time Samsung has come right out and said an Android 10 beta is bound specifically for the Galaxy Note 10+ and Galaxy 10 5G. Google released the initial shipping version of Android 10 (for Pixel phones) on September 3, but as is typically the case, it takes some for its hardware partners to adopt a major new build. As it pertains to Samsung, the company announced two weeks ago that it would also be arriving "soon" on its Galaxy S10 family, including the Galaxy... Read more...
Have you been eyeballing an upgrade to Samsung's Galaxy Note 10+ or Galaxy Note 10? If so, you may be interested to know about Microsoft's new trade-in promotion. Microsoft is offering up to $650 in trade-in credit towards a Galaxy Note 10+ or Galaxy Note 10, with the highest values being paid for a Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 9, or an iPhone X series handset. The maximum credit amount is even better than what Samsung offers through its own trade-in program, which is $600 off when upgrading from (and trading in) a Galaxy S10+. Samsung also has a spotty history with regards to its trade-in program, with some users venting on Twitter and Reddit about their experiences. There is a catch to Microsoft's... Read more...

Samsung's Galaxy Note series of large format Android smartphones has never been about compromise. The pen-wielding, hybrid devices have always been bigger, more powerful and more capable, with larger batteries and as many bells, whistles and features as Samsung could cram in. As such, Galaxy Note users generally hail from a power user demographic, oftentimes with enterprise and business use cases that require an expanded tool set. And so for this passionate following, it probably comes as no surprise that Samsung has once again upped the Note's game with the latest iteration, the Galaxy Note 10 series.   The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 now comes in two sizes, a more modest 6.3-inch Galaxy...

While we can usually count on mobile SoC performance increasing year-over-year on the latest iPhones and Android-based smartphones, one thing that hasn’t seen a dramatic increase is battery life. While smartphone OEMs have been able to allow for super-long runtimes with massive lithium-ion batteries (like the gargantuan 5,000 mAh unit in the ASUS ZenFone 6), power density has pretty much stayed the same. That could change with a switch from lithium-ion battery technology to graphene, and Samsung is apparently leading the way. That news comes to us from gadget leaker Evan Blass, who claims that Samsung could release a Galaxy smartphone as soon as next year (but most likely in 2021)... Read more...
During yesterday's Samsung Unpacked event, the South Korean electronics maker briefly displayed a slide showing the two main versions of the Galaxy Note 10, and accompanying price points. As shown above, there are also 5G variants of both the Galaxy Note 10+ and, yes, the smaller Galaxy Note 10, though availability for the smaller model is limited.

The smaller Galaxy Note 10 5G will only launch in... Read more...
