The new S Pen stylus

The S Pen stylus allows you to take notes, draw on the screen and more. If you’re more of a doodle person and want a phone with a stylus, this is one of the few devices currently obtainable, and the others are the previous Note handsets.

Enhancements to the S Pen for the Note 10 and the Note 10+ include gesture controls that enable you to control certain apps, such as the camera, video or gallery, by moving the S Pen in different directions.


The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ offers a larger and sharper display, larger battery, microSD support,  more storage options, more RAM and a quad rear camera setup somewhat than the triple rear camera setup compared to the standard Note 10.

It depends upon the usage if you're more of a video recording user or gaming or for daily robust use.

However, the Note 10+ is more pricey than the standard Note 10  and it is bigger than the Note 10 so everyone would not opt-out for it even though it provides more in specs and features and also due to its huge size and weight making it difficult to use in the outdoors.

For previous and existing Note users it won't matter much and would surely go for the Note 10+ because of the size and battery capacity as everyone has been expecting more battery size and heavy using.

If you’re looking for an easier-to-hold device then you should go for the Note 10 instead and it is also compact and also provides all the features that the Note 10+ has and saving almost INR 20000 which is also a huge amount.
