    Specs comparison: Galaxy S10 5G vs Galaxy Note 10+ 5G

    Samsung added a 5G variant to its Galaxy S flagship lineup this year in the form of Galaxy S10 5G. The company is now doing the same for the Galaxy Note 10 as well. Both the Note 10 and Note 10+ will come in 5G variants, but only the latter will be available in most markets, effectively making it the only 5G option for many Note customers.

    The Note 10+ 5G will probably go on sale in the same markets as the S10 5G and should be priced closer to each other. Though both these devices are not too different in the specs department, there are still some key differences that may influence your purchase decision. The Note 10+ 5G is basically a single-SIM Note 10+ with 5G support. The Galaxy S10 5G, on the other hand, is not merely an S10+ with 5G, but rather a different device altogether with substantially better specs and a higher price tag.

    Opting for the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G will give you faster wired charging and an S Pen, whereas the S10 5G will give you dual cameras on the front (rear-camera setup is the same for both) and a marginally bigger battery. Both miss out on a headphone jack. So, which of these two will make for a better purchase? The answer may eventually come down to the S Pen and how much you care about it.

    Check out the below table to know all the differences between these two top-of-the-line Galaxy smartphones.
