Galaxy S10e vs Galaxy Note8
Which phone is best for you?
Samsung’s Galaxy S10e and Note8 are two very different phones, and which suits you best will depend on your priorities. At over six inches long and three across, the Note8 is a big beast, and particularly well equipped for business users, thanks to the S Pen stylus, which you can use to take notes and meeting minutes. Its 2x12-megapixel camera takes pin-sharp pictures and records 4K video, and the sizable 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display renders movies and games in spectacular high definition.
The S10e has a much smaller frame, but the Infinity-O Display makes more use of the phone’s face, so the 5.3-inch FHD+ screen is just as impressive as the Note8’s. The S10e’s camera is even more incredible – the 16+12-megapixel dual camera can switch from ultra-wide angle to very tight zoom, and renders colours and shadows as your eye sees them.
Both are powerful phones with 6GB of RAM under the hood, but the S10e packs much more into a small package. If you need the S Pen, or delight in a large screen experience, the Note8 is still a great phablet, but the S10e punches well above its weight, and slips neatly into your pocket.
