Worse sound? iphones sound like crap, always have, IMO. Plus, I use PowerAmp on all my android devices. You can use squat with iphones except the built in stuff or apps that wrap around the built in stuff. Poweramp and many other progs let you really finetune your sound.Cons of switching to the Samsung:
1) Worse sound.
2)No more iMessage
3)No beautiful emogi!
4)No more Apple watch(which I hardly ever use)
5)No more excellent Apple EarPods.
6)The punchout hole for the camera reducing the screen size.
Sad panda... But I can live with that, considering all the pros.
Well, that's primarily Apple forcing you how to use their phone. I myself prefer the almost total freedom of android. And yes, I have tons of iphones. Just not as my daily driver. My daily driver is whatever latest galaxy is the most current.The only thing I'll add is that iOS has had built in screen recording for at least a couple of years. I can't recall if it was added in iOS 10 or 11, but it's one of the default buttons in Command Center along with camera and flashlight.
I've always been intrigued by the Note, and the latest version looks really slick. BUT, I've tried 3 different non-Samsung Android phones and there are simply too many little things about the OS that i can't stand. And yes, I know customization, freedom, etc. But, I have fewer nitpicks on the iOS side (and Windows Phone back in the day).
I have fewer nitpicks with an OS, and that's because the OS forced my hand in how I am to use it? I don't fully understand that line of thinking, but ok, fine.Well, that's primarily Apple forcing you how to use their phone. I myself prefer the almost total freedom of android.

Congrats!! What is the battery for?Came in a little while ago. Its beautiful! I havent turned it on yet as I am copying the data from my 400sd card from my S10 + to a new 512gb SD card that I plan to use on the Note 10 +. Will give my thoughts on it after it's set up. My bitch-buds and battery came in as well. The battery is much bigger than I thought it would be!
No earphone jack on note 10 means I'm less likely buying it. I am not paying a single penny on a Bluetooth one, when there are the wired ones are a less of a hassle. In my opinion, Bluetooth headphones is the dumbest thing humanity could have ever thought of. Seperate battery for each ear pod, fixed maximum sample rate; wired earpods have no extra battery requirement, and no maximum sample rate as the maximum sample is that of the jack it's connected too.Straight from the main site: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14712/samsung-announces-galaxy-note10-note10
Looks like I'll be keeping my iPhone another year...
OK, quick review. I love it. The screen is absolutely beautiful. Its fast but not surprising as I have an S10 + and its basically the same processor. The cameras are great, but they have been great since the S7. The new night mode works well. Some of the features show at the keynote are not there, like the 3d scan thing. It feels great in the hand and my only pet peeves are these two: 1. No headphone jack. It really sucks to have to use a dongle. 2. Power button on the left side. After using Galaxy phones for 10 years you get used to it.
At least you can disable the Bixby button to just use it as a power button. Out of the box the power/bixby button sucked as they copied apples stupid iphone in that you have yo hold power and a volume button to turn it off, but there is a setting to just long press it and the off screen will pop up. I played with the pen as thats the main reason i use notes and it works as great as it always has. The gesture thing is, imo, gimmicky and I will probably never use it other than taking group selfies and using the pen button as the shutter press, which you can do with the note 9. The speakers are really loud and sound good and for the life of me I can figure out if they put the speaker below the screen or if its just below the top bezel. Overall I am very happy and satisfied with it.
How so? You look at it, it unlocks. I prefer the scanner on the Note 10 and even the S10 as it just unlocks and open the phone, unlike my iphone xr which unlocks but I still have to swipe it to open.
Yes, it's one of those. And yes, I confirmed - without it, both the face ID and the fingerprint sensor work every time. Dang it... I wonder if the new case I ordered will work ok. I got a separate screen protector/cover this time. hopefully that will make a difference.Does your case come with a clear front cover? Like an otterbox?
