The fabled Galaxy Note 10+, often heralded as the Productivity King might just retain that title in our review. However, that doesn’t mean the phone doesn’t have it’s flaws, but how much of an effect that has on your purchase decision, really is dependent on the type of user you are. But with that being said, let’s get straight into the review of this one. Sit back, relax, and enjoy our review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+!

Display and Design; Fancy Lookin’ Thang

The display on the Note 10+ is one of the best I’ve ever seen. Not only in terms of colour, proportions, and size, but also I’m just how much of a pleasure it was to use. It’s equipped with a 6.8-inch Quad HD+Dynamic AMOLED display, with a 19:9 aspect ratio. And in case you were wondering, it has a 91% screen-to-body ratio. The Note 10+ has 162.3 x 77.2 x 7.9 mm dimensions, making it quite a tall, and pretty wide device, but more on that in a bit.

The phone features a very simple design philosophy, with a clean glass back, and seamless curved edge display. But on the topic of the curved edge display, it definitely isn’t my favourite, solely because of accidental touches. You’ll notice it especially if you’re using the phone single handed, or watching a video with one hand on the train. It really was a pain, so that’s why it the display doesn’t totally cut it for me.

The design as mentioned, is pretty simplistic, but classy at the same time. You can tell it’s a premium device. The display has a small cutout for the camera in the middle, and the rest of the sensors seem to be in the screen. It makes for a pretty seamless experience, but you’ll notice it while gaming sometimes, or while watching full screen videos/movies.

The Note 10 + comes in four different colours, which are Aura Pink, Aura White, Aura Glow and Aura Black. Quite an array to choose from, but personally, I like the black. The back of the phone is reflective enough to honestly be a mirror.

Performance; A Solid Performer

Tips to Boost Your Android Phone's Battery Life

A number of factors contribute to poor battery life on your Android phone. Thinner bodies, brighter screens, faster processors, more background software, and speedier internet connections all take their toll on phone batteries, though manufacturers are incorporating more powerful batteries to compensate. The Motorola Moto G Power has a 5,000mAh battery that can last for over 18 hours. Samsung’s Galaxy S phones, the most popular Android devices, can now last anywhere between 11 and 13 hours, depending on the model. Still, there are ways to get more out of any phone.
