Written by Hassan Abbas

Galaxy Note 9 vs Galaxy S10 Plus: It’s difficult to argue with purchasing Samsung’s latest high-end model. However, the Galaxy S10+ slightly better specs, the best screen, latest camera capabilities, and amazing features. They all make it appealing to Samsung fans. It does everything the Galaxy Note 9 does, but a little bit more — it only lacks S Pen.

As the Galaxy S10+ is, a big majority of its features and capabilities found in Note 9 for less money. Yes, its features and specs are slightly lower-end. Also, it doesn’t have the ultra-wide camera or latest screen tech, but that may be worth the savings. Also, it’s the only option out there if you like a great stylus for your phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is the latest top-end model from Samsung. However, we can’t forget that Note 9 was the fabulous thing just a few months prior. Here’s what you want to remember when selecting between the two.

What’s new in the Galaxy S10+

The Galaxy S10+ has a bunch of little upgrades that add up when you view them in aggregate. However, the display size is the same as Note 9’s but is it also more bright and vivid. There’s a latest ultra-wide-angle camera that opens up the latest shooting possibilities. Also, there’s quicker wireless charging.

The Samsung Galaxy S10+ does everything like the Note 9 does, but a handful of latest and amazing features.

However, the little difference is the improved ergonomics of the Galaxy S10+. Although both have the same screen size, also it’s smaller in every dimension than the Note 9. Not just this but it’s also 13% lighter than Note 9. In addition, with the latest fingerprint sensor, you don’t have that somewhat-awkward reach up to the back of the Note 9.
