Dongle or wireless buds: Which are you using with your Galaxy Note 10?
The Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ may be excellent phones (read our reviews here and here), but they don’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Note 10 and Note 10+ aren’t the first Samsung phones without a headphone jack, but they are the first mainstream offerings, and that makes all the difference. It’s a sign of things to come, and a clear indicator that no matter how much Samsung may have mocked others for doing the same thing, it has now decided to join the enemy instead of continuing to blaze its own path.
Without a 3.5mm port, the only possible solution to use existing audio gear with 3.5mm jacks on the Note 10 and Note 10+ is to buy a USB-C to 3.5mm dongle. One can also switch to wireless earbuds (which is probably what Samsung wants since it sells the Galaxy Buds), or they can use the AKG-tuned USB-C earbuds that Samsung supplies with its new Note flagships or buy third-party USB-C earbuds or headphones. And for our latest poll, here’s a question to our Note 10 and Note 10+-owing readers: Which of those options are you using?
