It can lift heavy processing loads and multi-tasking without any glitch. It comes with Samsung’s very own Exynos top of the line processors and comes loaded with 12 GB of RAM which is more than enough for 2-3 years of lag free performance with any kinds of updates and new apps. We played quite a lot of games and kept a lot of apps in the memory but everything was silky smooth here.

The phone has improved portrait photography along with better night time photos. Samsung has improved a lot in the camera software department with features like live focus for videos and a lot more.


The most life-changing improvement in the Note 10+ is it’s slightly increased Battery Capacity i.e. 4300 mAh along with 25w fast charging which is superfast.

The new appealing feature that this year’s note has is the air gestures and Handwriting recognition.
