The Note 10 Plus has some important differences, like a larger battery and a fourth camera on the back.

Both Note 10 phones make use of the S Pen stylus, which itself gets some new tricks.

Samsung has totally stripped out the headphone jack on both phones. You'll need to use the USB-C port if you want to use wired headphones.

The S Pen also gets gesture capability, so you can move through camera modes remotely, advance a musical track, or control a Power Point presentation.

It's not a gradient, but the colors seem to follow a rainbow pattern.
