The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus are looking like a big update to last year's Note 9. The bigger screens and the new S Pen gestures, combined with carryover features from the Galaxy S10 series, like the in-screen fingerprint reader, could very well tempt owners of the Note 8 or Note 9 to the newer phone.
Watch this: How does the latest Note compare to the previous versions?
I was sitting at a bar with my Pixel 2 XL. I wanted to do some mind mapping and jot down some ideas. I borrowed a pen and got to writing on napkins. The thoughts flew from pen to paper.
Then I started staring at my phone and the napkins. I thought, "Why can't I just write on my phone?" The Pixel 2 XL also suffered from some screen quality issues that I could not unsee. So, I took a look at a friend's Note 8 and I was sold.
One return later and I've been using a Galaxy Note 8 as my daily driver for a while now. I resisted the urge to upgrade to the Note 9 because I just didn't see it as a significant update. The Note 10 seems like a different story.
I attended Wednesday's Note 10 launch event, and in this week's Alphabet City video embedded above, I go over the new announcements to break down what's worth looking forward to in
new larger phones.
