    Samsung Note 10 Reviews

    Galaxy Note10 SM-N970U 256GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Aura Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone Just what I was looking for, excellent device. The most amazing is the S Pen.
    Date published: 2019-11-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone, disappointed no headphone jack. I had to get a new phone due to the screen going out in my old one. This isn't a whole lot different than my old galaxy gs-8, but an overall nice phone. I didn't realize the note 10 didn't have a headphone jack until after I bought it. I am pretty disappointed with that since I was accustomed to using the free wired headphones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pen! I did not expect to use the pen as much as I am right now. Just an amazing phone. I'm glad I switched back to Samsung

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unable to simply play music in car I bought this phone because I wanted to switch from iphone to android and try it lut...BIG MISTAKE! This phone has a lot of features and power, but one very basic feature it lacks is the ability to play music via usb in a car, a newer car to be exact. The bluetooth is unstable as well, I never had these problems with my old iphone 7. It is a deal breaker for me and I regret leaving Apple because at least their products work, samsung is just all flash.

For me this thing of GPS and Frozen all the UE is the worst, is a nice device but if i could back... nooo... ohh also the signal lose all the time...

    Does it still have a micro sd card slot?

    Does it still have a micro sd card slot?
    Asked by: Peter
    No, this model would not have a Micro SD card slot. But the Note 10 + would have one.
