Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs note 10+ Review:-

For a long time galaxy note has represented the best handsets but in the note 10 series it has changed. Samsung introduces two note phones with a few differences beyond their screen and prices.

These two smartphones share the most core features. They both are same in many ways such as rear camera, fast charger of about 25-watt, and water resistance ability.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs note 10+ Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs note 10+ Review:

Basically the note 10 and the note 10 plus different from each other in four ways:

    • Screen size and resolution (note 10 plus has larger display)
    • Micro SD expansion (It is available only in Note 10 Plus)
    • Battery size and charging speed
    • Memory (the Note 10 Plus has more RAM and Storage)

Design and display:

The biggest change in the design when compared to other Samsung phones is the introduction of full screen display.

The note 10 and the note 10 plus both have AMOLED screen of about 6.3 and 6.8 inch respectively. Both have bright display which provide an ease to read but one thing you will see that note 10 has the best screen among many of the others doesn’t matter its size is smaller than note 10 plus even then it provides noticeably less screen real estate than the 6.8-inch Note 10 Plus.

Battery performance:

Both the note handsets are pleasure to use. Samsung note 10 plus make its phones battery more significant by increasing its battery capacity in note 10 plus 4,300mAh which was 3,500 in note 10 with 12W and 15W wireless charging respectively. Its fast wireless charging can easily get you through a day

Camera performance:

Both the mobile phones have the same camera setup but one thing which is noticeable that note 10 lacks depth vision camera but till it doesn’t matter near most people.

The Camera sensor of note 10 is placed in the center but we noticed that some may not be the fan of the central camera.

Both note 10 and note 10 plus have rear camera with 16meagpixel ultra-wide sensor. The shots taken with note 10 and note 10 plus usually similar in color, range and many other things.

Memory:

Note 10 plus comes with 12GB of RAM while the note 10 comes with only with only 8GB of RAM but the performance is still great in note 10. Well  in both handsets you will find a different experience.

Moto G8 Plus review

Moto G8 Plus review: 

Introduction:

Moto G8 Plus was released on October 25, 2019, after a day when it was officially announced to the world. It is cheaper than the G7. It comes in an unusual styled box with a bat logo on its plain lid and the bottom, there is a picture of the handset.

But it is just a box the thing which matters is the material which is inside the box. You will find an 18W branded charger and a USB-A—C cable inside the box but it lacks ear pods.

Display:

The design is quite modern, it has rounded and smooth corners. It has a 6.3 inches capacitive screen which is slightly bigger than G7. It has U shaped notch top. Moto has a suitable display for casual use like viewing the videos and for gaming and its fingerprint sensor works quickly and brilliantly than the inner screen sensor.

MOTOROLA G8 PLUS

Camera:

Motorola G7 Plus has an excellent camera, There are much better features in G8 its main camera has a resolution of 48 megapixels but it can take pictures of about 12 megapixels in which four pixels are always combined. We can control its lighting conditions even in the light mode the bright spots are visible.

G8 photos are fair however the camera dynamic range is a problem.
Rear camera: Main: 48MP Quad Pixel (Quad Bayer filter), 1/2″ sensor size, 0.8µm pixel size, f/1.7 aperture, laser AF; 2160p@30fps video recording.
Front camera: 25MP, 0.9µm, f/2.0


Battery:

Motorola G8 is another inexpensive handset that is a pleasure to use. Motorola makes its phone battery more significant by increasing its battery capacity which is about 4,000mAh. But one shameful thing is that Motorola G7 has a fast-charging of about 27W which is reduced to 15W in G8 this results that you have to for two hours to make your battery 100 percent but can easily go through a whole day’s worth of social scrolling, photoshoot and texting without and need of charging until the next morning.

Unboxing:

It was available on the market in the UK on October 2, 2019, but its release one month later. Inside it, you’ll find a pair of earbuds that end in a 3.5mm connector.

Samsung Galaxy Fold long-term review

Samsung Galaxy Fold long-term review

Samsung Galaxy Fold long-term review

Weight:

Samsung Galaxy fold weighs about 276g and its thickness is about 17.1mm. Its screen size is about 7.3 inches and when it is closed it held in place with some surprisingly strong magnets.

Galaxy Fold opens in the same way as a laptop. Another advantage of this mobile phone design is that the Infinity-Flex display is protected from scratches and scuffs. Galaxy Fold is pretty and oftentimes feels like holding two smartphones sandwiched together, instead of a single device.

Samsung Galaxy Fold Design

Camera:

Now a days there is triple camera system on the back of all the smartphones When we unfold the phone the dual front cameras on the inside consist of the same 10MP selfie camera and its rear camera is about 16 megapixel a 12MP wide-angle sensor which can vary automatically between f/1.5 and f/2.4 based on the light requirements in the room, and a 12MP telephoto camera.

Charging:

Its most stunning feature is it can recharge itself as well as the second device through Wireless Power Share while connected to a regular USB-C charger.

Software:

Galaxy Fold, Samsung has introduced much stunning software, such as it can run three apps simultaneously on the 7.3-inch display, moreover, it can also split the screen vertically but it is not much attractive because for watching the video and something else horizontal screen is much than it.

Charging & Battery:

This smartphone has a bigger display so that it has a large battery capacity to overcome the phone requirements. It has 4,380mah battery for its larger display, its fast charging is worth noting thing it comes with a15W charger.

Storage & Ram:

Its RAM and internal Storage are about 12GB and 512GB respectively. It is available in different colors such as Space Silver, Cosmos Black, Martian Green, and Astro Blue. Buy it if you want to impress the world with your folded smartphone for better conversation.
