Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ arrived yesterday. The two new devices are in the high end of the U.S. smartphone market, but the industry at large is finding it harder and harder to make phones that are better than what most people already have. For context — if you’re an iPhone user — the Note 10 has a similar feel to the iPhone XS (but it’s bigger). It’s also comparable in price — the Note 10 is $949, only slightly cheaper than Apple’s $999 iPhone XS. 📱
What’s different: If you like to jot down notes, the Note 10 comes with a sleek-looking stylus. The phone’s new features also include improved video editing, AR doodling and “Air Actions,” or gestures made using the stylus to control apps. Similar to new iPhone models, there’s no headphone jack (a first for this line).
It’s worth noting that analysts are forecasting a decline in smartphone sales in 2019, with worldwide smartphone sales reportedly declining by 2.5% from last year. 👀
As a result, releases from smartphone manufacturers have been neck and neck, and foldable phones are on the horizon.
