The South Korean giant has now finally unveiled the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 for the Indian market. And with the brand new design and tons of overwhelming traits, the latest Note turns out to be a great buy for productive users. But, is it the perfect phone for you?
Well, here’s a list of top 10 Samsung Galaxy Note 10 features you should consider while picking up one for yourself.
Top Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Features
1] Hole-punch camera
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10’s biggest overhaul is indeed the new punch-hole camera design. Presence of the same allows for an all-screen estate, offering a far more immersive and seamless experience altogether. And for the best part, it’s completely different from other devices. All-inclusive, there are no bezels on top and bottom, making up for a huge selling point for masses.
2] The productive S-Pen
Samsung has now revamped the S-Pen to an entirely new level, vied to the previous generation. According to Samsung, the new Samsung Pen gets a unibody design that aids for a pen to paper experience. Moreover, it packs a six-axis motion sensor, alongside gyroscope and accelerometer sensors to execute all the following trickeries.
Notably, you can use S-Pen for screen magnification, drawing on videos with the live message, translating highlighted sentences and converting foreign currencies, or creating memos for the always-on display. Plus, you can use Air Actions by moving the pen in the air and using certain gestures for tasks such as switching camera modes and zooming. You can even control in-app features for media apps like Spotify and YouTube.
3] AR Doodle and 3D Scanner
As touted at the event, the Galaxy Note 10 integrates bleeding-edge AR and 3D capabilities into the camera. The AR Doodle, which uses Google ARCore to track people’s faces and the phone’s position in the area, allows the user to draw around the people, add effects and animations that track to the image.
The 3D scanner, on the other hand, uses the phone’s Time of Flight camera sensor to take scans of an object, and turn it into a movable 3D rendering within a few seconds. Well, we’ve seen this feature previously on Huawei Mate 20 Pro, but Samsung has altogether managed to create a better version of the same.
4] Remappable Power Button
Many Note 9 users have been complaining of the useless Bixby button. This time, Samsung has embedded the Bixby functionality within the Power button. By default, holding down the button opens Bixby while pressing it once will act as lock or unlock toggle for the display. Besides, you can also remap the button in the settings for double press and press and hold actions. Sounds cool, right?
5] Super Fast Charging
Making up for an immense upgrade over the typical Adaptive charging on previous phones, Note 10-series has taken a huge leap towards flagship-grade fast charging. Notably, the regular Note 10 boasts of 25W fast charging while the Note 10+ gets a whopping 45W charging prowess, followed by Wireless Charging 2.0. And as per what the company claims, you can get a full day’s worth of charge in just 30 minutes.
6] Built-in Screen Recorder
Evidently, the new Note also gets a built-in screen recorder. Now it is not a basic screen recording function; instead, it allows you to add yourself in a PiP window, alongside capturing what’s on the screen. This is especially useful for gamers and vloggers who want to personalise their streams or tutorials. Additionally, you can also use the S Pen to annotate as you record for a more entertaining, engaging video.
7] Wireless PowerShare
Just like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Galaxy S10, Note 10 brings in the wireless power share feature using which users can wirelessly recharge their Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Buds (review), or another supported device (including smartphones) with the Galaxy Note 10. So if you’re having any of these accessories, then you don’t have to worry about carrying extra stuff for charging on the go.
8] Night Mode for Selfies
Most of us rely on rear camera for clicking pictures in low-light. But that doesn’t seem very feasible when it comes to selfies. Thankfully, Samsung has now enabled the Night mode option to take photos out of the front camera. As a result, you can get well-lit and usable shots even indoors and unideal lighting conditions.
9] Zoom-in Mic
This is one of the most unique features of the Galaxy Note 10 that’ll end up surprising everyone around you. Basically, the device comes with a Zoom-in mic feature that amplifies the audio in the frame and pushes background noise down to help focus on the sound that you want.
So if you want to focus on the sound (say) of a dog, just zoom to keep him inside the frame, and the camera will use all the three microphones (including the one beside camera module) to distinguish the sound.
10] Samsung Dex & Link to Windows
The Galaxy Note 10 extends Samsung DeX’s capabilities, making it easier for users to work between their phone and a Windows or Mac computer. With a simple USB connection, users can drag and drop files between devices, and use their favourite mobile apps with a mouse and a keyboard, while keeping their data secure on their phone through Samsung Knox.
Besides, the Link to Windows feature will let you connect to your Windows 10 PC with one click. After which, you can see all your notifications, send and receive messages, and review recent photos directly on your PC with just one click on the quick panel.
So these were the top 10 features of Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Anyways, the list doesn’t stop here, there are many more things to mention, such as the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, super-bright AMOLED display, UFS 3.0 storage, etc.
