Mobile phones with good quality are the best but usually the highest in price. Phones that are on top of their game with amazing specifications, unfortunately, have a higher price tag, but sometimes all you want is great value for money. OnePlus has actually been the best in offering all the essentials while skipping out on unnecessary extras. The end result is a phone that offers most of the must-have features at a significantly lower price.
Samsung traditionally saved its best features and performance options for the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. While the A-series gave us some interesting hardware, there were notable exclusions. Back then, Samsung launched the one-two punch of the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Note 10 Lite. Is Samsung finally taking the affordable flagship segment seriously? If our Galaxy S10 Lite review is anything to go by, then 100% yes!
The Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite are, in fact, the two phones which would fit right in with Samsung’s new S20 series. Samsung chose to use the Exynos 9810 processor for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, the same chip that we saw in the Galaxy Note 9 that came out back in 2018. The handset is offered in both 6GB and 8GB RAM with 128GB of storage and microSD expansion that supports up to 1TB.
The 6.7-inch display is a Super AMOLED Infinity-O panel with a 2400×1080 pixel resolution that works out to 394ppi. A 4,500mAh battery keeps the lights on and supports 25W super-fast wired charging.
Galaxy Note 10 Lite primary 12-megapixel sensor is from the Galaxy Note 8, which means there’s no variable space. The Galaxy Note 9’s 12-megapixel telephoto 2x optical zoom camera is available on this device as well. A 16-megapixel super wide-angle sensor completes the vertically positioned triple rear camera, and Samsung has included a 32-megapixel front camera for you to take the best selfies. What more could we ask for!
The S Pen is what distinguishes the Galaxy Note series from other Samsung smartphones. The Galaxy Note 10 Lite is available now with the most affordable price to come with this style. It also comes with a Bluetooth Low-Energy supported S Pen.
That means the Galaxy Note 10 Lite’s S Pen can be used as a remote for the camera shutter and as a clicker during presentations. It also provides all air command functionality which is seen on the other Galaxy Note devices. The Text Export feature is available too in order to allow users to remotely transfer handwritten notes as text!
The Galaxy Note 10 Lite runs Android 10 and comes with the One UI 2.0 skin on top. And since it comes with Android 10, the device will receive major platform updates up till Android 12. All Android devices from Samsung are supported for two major updates.
Since Android 10 is already present, and customers who purchase this device will most certainly receive two Android platform updates, this means they will be all set until Android 12 which is going to be released in two years.
