In the second half of the year, Samsung traditionally introduces a new addition to its "Note" phablet series. This year, for the very first time, there is not just one new phablet, but three. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus are real eye-catchers in the chic Edge design and play in terms of performance in the high-end league.But the Note 10 Plus 5G - if you want to call it another model - is the one we'll be reviewing here.
The Note 10+, and the Note 10+ 5G version are exactly the same, except - wait for it - for the price and the 5G function of course. Indeed, Samsung are asking early adopters who want to try 5G out now to cough up an extra £200 or so, over the base price of the Note 10 Plus - which is already supremely expensive, but then again, new tech always is.
In the UK, all the Note 10 models come with the in-house Exynos 9825 processor - and not (as in the USA) the Snapdragon 855. Both are efficient eight-core processors, which were manufactured using the slightly nerdy sounding 7-nanometer process. The new Exynos delivers a maximum clock rate of 2.7 gigahertz. In addition, there are 10 8 GB for the normal non-Plus Note, and 12 GB for the Note 10 Plus.
When it comes to performance, the new Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G is once again at the top. Android 9 Pie is installed under Samsung's user interface - called One, which makes a good overall impression.
In particular, the S-Pen function is quickly apparent even for beginners.Internally, there are 256 or even 512 GB of available storage space plus - so Samsung does not let it run riot with an oversupply of options.
Only the 5G / Plus versions have a microSD slot, with which the internal memory can be expanded by up to 1 TB (if that is necessary at all). In the Note 10 Plus, Samsung has installed a battery with a generous capacity of 4,300 mAh. The smaller Note10 has to make do with 3,500 mAh. The Note9 scored around 10 hours in our runtime test with a 4,000 mAh battery - that's a solid value but the Note10 is even better.
There really are very few differences between the Note 10 Plus 5G, and the Galaxy S10 Plus 5G. So much so, that many people are wondering exactly why Samsung launched these two models anyway.
The question is really whether you want to get the 5G version now, or to wait. A lot of contracts are available at no extra cost to upgrade to 5G - for example, at the time of writing, Vodafone are offering no-cost upgrades to 5G models.
Differences between the S10 Plus and the Note10 Plus:
In the UK, the cost of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G Is £1299.
On contract in the UK, the price of a Note 10 starts at about £50 on pay monthly plans.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to
be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand
new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G contract only to find you can't use your data (never
mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.
A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signal
across all major mobile networks across the UK.
According to Which?, In their latest research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance
and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and
Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had
to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.
EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with
customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal -
they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!
