Announced only last week, the Galaxy Note 10 lineup is receiving a ton of praise already from both DxOMark and DisplayMate. Specifically, DxOMark is loving the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G and DisplayMate is loving the Galaxy Note 10+.
Top Rated Cameras
According to DxOMark’s testing, the Note 10+ 5G is up there with the best camera setups available on any device, with a 113 Mobile score and a 99 Selfie score. In overall scoring, that’s enough to give it the top position, higher than the P30 Pro from Huawei and the Galaxy S10 5G.
To remind you, the Note 10+ 5G features the same camera setup as the Note 10+ — there’s a 12MP primary sensor with OIS and dual pixel AF, 16MP ultra-wide, 12MP telephoto, plus a ToF sensor used for depth estimation when in Portrait mode.
The general takeaway from DxOMark’s review is that the device has good levels of color saturation, neutral white balance, and accurate renders. Here’s a snippet from its review.
Generally neutral white balance, accurate rendering, and high levels of saturation ensure that color is vivid and pleasant in most tested conditions. Samsung has stuck with a 12Mp resolution for the Note 10+ 5G, but the sensor still manages to pack in plenty of detail, with particularly well-defined edges and intricate elements visible in good lighting conditions.
We’re off to a good start.
Record Breaking A+ Display
As for DisplayMate and the non-5G Galaxy Note 10+, you can really sense the love from their writing.
According to DM’s analysis, “The Galaxy Note 10+ has a very impressive Top Tier Smartphone Display with close to text book perfect calibration accuracy and performance that is visually indistinguishable from perfect. Based on our extensive lab tests and measurements the Galaxy Note 10+ receives a DisplayMate Best Smartphone Display Award earning DisplayMate’s highest ever Display Performance Grade of A+ and setting or matching over 13 Smartphone Display Performance Records.”
There are a lot of highlights for the phone’s display, but a few of them are as follows.
- Record: Very High Absolute Color Accuracy (0.4 JNCD) that is Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
- Record: Very High Image Contrast Accuracy and Intensity Scale Accuracy that is Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
