      Love the on-screen fingerprint sensor, the cameras, the 12gb of RAM, long battery life that takes only a short time to top off, nearly bezel-less through the hole punch front-facing camera, which doesn't take a bunch of real estate like the iPhone's notch and the s-pen

      @Tommy Bayshore By your logic who uses headphones to listen to music? Phones have speakers. Also there are computers so go use one of those instead of a phone... Your arguments are terrible. Also mobile gaming has a larger market share than pc and consoles COMBINED. And I'm dumb? Lol

    I would love to get my mitts on one but I'd have to get it on a payment plan as it's very expensive! My favorite feature? The size of the screen!! I could care less about the cameras as I'm a traditional blk & white photographer and use pro, film cameras. I'm very disappointed about the loss of the headphone jack, though, and I would consider the Samsung S10 plus instead, mainly for that reason alone. For myself, phones are mainly functional but also for entertainment such as Amazon Prime Movies, and music. Photography, eh...not so much.

    Had this phone for over a week now. And holy crap is it a powerful device. I upgraded from a S9 and the 12gb of ram makes a huge difference. Switching between apps and launching the camera is so seamless, it's perfect. And the huge screen has me hypnotized. I picked up an S9 on Saturday and was blown away by how already used to the large screen I was. This is the best phone I've ever owned. I'm glad I make the choice to upgrade.

    Girls that like tech are cool! 1. Bixby must die, like yesterday. 2. The Samsung UI isnt getting good enough, fast enough. 3. The best Android UI is obviously on the pixel, the next best is shockingly - the Razer phone [my favorite by far]. 4. More phones need a stylus to compete with the note - this will create some competition resulting in way better stylus based devices 5. Bring back the head phone jack! 6. Make darn sure the battery is more robust that your previous versions SAMSUNG... *AHEM*!!! 7. The note 9 I tried, yeah, the speakers... horrible, went back to my iPhone because I like speakers... I know I'm weird... 8. Make sure I can add and remove media easily, or you are no better than an iPhone (which everyone loves to hate), make it simple copy and paste, then we are good, ok Samsung, ok? good, great, good, great, good... thanks. 9. UGH! lose the curved edges, yeah - we know you can curve the display, no one cares, the glare is unacceptable... Just stop!

    Would've been good to see more info on features appealing to the business community. Devoting an excessive amount of time to AR, picture taking and video editing/games seems off base. Showcasing how the Note performs using PowerPoint and other features related to the business community would reflect substantive editorial decision-making and demonstrate strategic thinking.

    I received my Note 10Plus today and spent all day getting it perfect, arranging apps, notes, photos ect. When I started to get phone calls I noticed that the caller's voice is muffled and there is an intense vibration every time the caller spoke. it is like covering the speaker with your hand giving that muffled voice sound and putting your hand on a woofer for that deep vibration. Although the photos and the screen are excellent, I am returning it and keeping my note 8, I cannot deal with that muffled voice and vibrations

    I purchased my 512gb Note 10 plus this past Saturday from Verizon. I was so excited only to experience the same glitches I have been experiencing with my S10 Plus. After spending several hours speaking with Samsung customer support I had to send the S10 plus back to Samsung and now my new Note 10 plus is so glitchy that I can't even use the provided headset because the phone glitches and the phone volume keeps turning itself off. I was told it was a safety feature and worked with Samsung customer support to utilized advance features. In addition the phone was rebooted and nothing has worked and Samsung technical support told me that a new software patch was coming with no ETA in sight! Instead of me waiting for that I am taking the phone back to Verizon since its still within the return period. My new S10 plus was mailed to service today to Samsung hoping those glitches could be fixed. Two expensive flagship phones that don't work as intended. I am so done with Samsung. If you cannot use the headset to make a call or listen to music without the phone glitching I don't know what to tell you Samsung! You lost a loyal customer!
