Competing with yourself isn’t generally an awful thing, however sometimes it feels like a misuse of resources. Right now, the Galaxy S10+ sits on our rundown of best Android phones. It has top marks in hardware, display quality and highlights, in addition to super-powerful software and great consistent cameras. It isn’t really the best phone for every person (no single phone is), however it’s the best top of the line phone for a great number of people. Samsung has an amazing formula, and hit it out of the park once again;long periods of involvement with the Galaxy S10 arrangement affirms it.
I note the majority of that now, 4 months after its launch, as we’re quickly approaching the launch of the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7.We’re expecting a beginning price for the Note 10 of at least $1000, with the genuine flagship Note 10+ model at maybe $1200 or more. So given exactly how incredible the Galaxy S10+ is as of now at $800 (or its $1000 MSRP), what, precisely, can Samsung do to justify those Note 10 prices when the phones are required to be quite like the GS10+?
This is the question we ask of Samsung in some way consistently. Especially since the Galaxy S8 generation with the huge GS8+ stealing such a large amount of Note 8,s thunder. From that point, the “plus” Galaxy S model has been viably identical to the Note of that year regarding capabilities, size and highlights — with only a couple of little factors to keep it separated. And the gap continues closing.
For 2019, it’s shaping up much the equivalent. There’s expected longer battery life, and reputed quicker charging to match, which are both acknowledged. But the base Note 10 is probably going to have a screen not much larger than the Galaxy S10+; just the Note 10+ with an implied 6.75-inch screen could really provide noticeably more real estate. The triple rear camera could be marginally overhauled and tweaked, however we’re not anticipating a generational leap. There is, obviously, the S Pen to lean on — the Galaxy S series doesn’t have a simple there. Despite the fact that decent, the that collection of changes isn’t massive.
Can you justify $1200 for a Note 10+ to get a few small differentiators?
So again, with a Galaxy S10+ accessible fo under $900, would you be able to justify the Note 10+ at $1200 for a couple of differentiators? For a great number of people, likely not. For some diehard fans that need the most elite, and those with deeper pockets, sure it is justified. The Note 10 and 10+ will both doubtlessly be better overall than the Galaxy S10+ without bringing trade-offs — the inquiry is how much worth you can truly place on the enhancements when the GS10+ will even now be right there offering extraordinary quality and value.
Obviously if Samsung is going to lose Galaxy S10+ sales to any other phone, it might as well be the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+. Now, it feels like the Note brand exists not for any genuine fundamental contrasts from the Galaxy S line or on the ground that many people want an S Pen, but since it basically gives Samsung an approach to stay relevant and have something new available generally at regular 6 months.
The Note 10, and Note 10+ specifically, will be better than the Galaxy S10+ — and their launch will hoist the status of the whole Galaxy lineup, from the Galaxy S10e as far as possible up to the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G. Regardless of whether that was the main thing Samsung achieved with the Note 10 launch, it’d be a general success — everything else about how much better the Note 10 and Note 10+ are over the present slate of Galaxy S10s is only a bonus.

It’s hard to argue against the Galaxy S10+. Fantastic hardware and a top tier display wrap around top-notch specs and a pile of highlights to make anyone jealous.
