My Note 10+ arrived this morning.


Is anyone else having trouble logging into their Samsung account?  I can't sign in from the phone on 4G or Wi-Fi and if I go to the account page on my browser on my Surface it doesn't load - that's at work, and if I remote to my home server and try there it won't load on my home internet either.



Had no trouble at all, signed in first try

So, can someone who has their hands on it now, confirm they are in fact defaulting the Note 10+ to 1080P Resolution, instead of QHD? A review I just watched shwoed it out of the box as 1080p!


 


Had to change to QHD manually. I can only imagine what this does to the battery.


 


 


 



Res is set to FHD+ (2280/1080) out of the box

I can finally logon to my Samsung account, and it resolves across the ISPs and devices I tried yesterday.  I had an online chat with Samsung who said a lot of customers were reporting the same issue.  Very annoying while I was trying to set things up, but all good now thankfully.

So is anyone going to comment on the actual phone itself?

It's epic.  DeX as an app is surprisingly useful when used at my multi-monitor setup at work.  Currently got 4 apps open side by side on the DeX display and not a whiff of lag like there was on my Note 9 when I had more than 2 apps open. 

 

Next time I travel for work I'll use it as my main driver so I don't have to take my other devices with me.

 

The night mode on the camera is excellent, as is having the wide angle lens.  

 

In-display fingerprint reader is super quick, as is facial recognition.  

 

Being able to disable Bixby from the side button is about bloody time.

 

The S Pen also feels a LOT nicer than the Note 9, especially the tip on the display.  The 9 Pen felt a little like there was some friction on the display.  This one glides across it smoothly.  

 

Haven't tried many other features yet as spent most of the time setting up the launcher and apps last night.

What phone did you come from? I have the S10+ at the moment, but man I miss my s-pen and I love the massive screen of the Note 10+

I am not convinced by the inscreen fingerprint reader. When I pick up my phone, my finger goes to the reader on the back as part of the stability security of the phone.

 

 

 

I haven't tried it, but already from the play I had in store of the phone in general, it doesn't feel as natural.

 

 

 

I'm going to wait and see if the post release offers are more compelling, but interestingly, I can't see a 256GB Model for sale in the plus. Only the regular? I see it's an option at Samsung, but I'd really rather deal with a retailer than Samsung direct.
