The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite Review

Samsung recently launched the Galaxy Note 10 Lite alongside Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite! So we are going to discuss here the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite which is a budget variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series which is a flagship! It’s fun getting those same features and a stunning display for less price makes it more accessible to those going for the likes of OnePlus 7T! Let’s discuss the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite in depth


Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite comes with a Dynamic AMOLED display having a screen size of 6.1 inches. There is a screen resolution of 1,080 x 2,280 pixels. It has a pixel density of 414 PPI, which adds sharpness to the content streaming. The smartphone has a sleek design along with a bezel-less display that gets a punch-hole finish.

The Display is best you get in this price range. The colors were great in sunlight and indoor use.


The Note 10 Lite’s camera setup comprises of three 12MP cameras, each cut out for different functions. There’s one with a wide lens and f/1.7 aperture, another is a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and another is an ultrawide lens with f/2.4 aperture. Both the primary and telephoto lenses are optically stabilized and there’s a super steady video mode to shooting objects, while in motion.

The main cameras do a very good job like you would expect any device to work. The photos taken in daylight were amazing and sharp had a lot of details. The low light performance was also decent and manages to do the job and is better in terms of the camera than the rivals such as OnePlus 7T.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite features a 32MP shooter at the front and is good. The 32MP selfie camera also comes with portrait mode, slo-mo video but no night mode. By default, it bins four pixels into one to output an 8MP image. It also captures selfies at f/2.2 aperture which is smaller than the average in that segment. Selfies are also given the extra beautification treatment by default, but you can turn it off from the camera app itself. The background blur from the front camera is quite consistent.


Exynos 9810 is manufactured on a 10nm process and has an octa-core CPU (4×2.7GHz Mongoose M3 & 4×1.7GHz Cortex-A55). The GPU is a Mali-G72 MP18. Exynos 9810 was used in the Samsung Galaxy S9 series and it is quite old when compared to the latest processors we get in this range. At this point, I think the Snapdragon 855 would have done justice like in the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. Although it has an S pen which is the same as the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series. And will also perform the same way for those who can make the most of it.


The Note10 Lite is powered by a 4500mAh battery. Samsung intends the phone to be used well over a day, and the phone delivers that kind of battery life on normal to moderate usage. The Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite tops up with a 25W fast charger included in the box. You will need a Type-C to Type-C cable to achieve the full speeds. Interestingly, the S10 Lite does support 45W fast charging but still gets a 25W charger in the box. The phone tops up to full capacity in around 90 minutes.

Overall verdict

If you are looking for a flagship device and can’t get the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series then this a great option alongside the OnePlus 7T which is a great device for gaming but the cameras aren’t that great. And Samsung is also available locally in every place via local shops then this a bonus over other OnePlus devices. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is also great alternative then this alongside OnePlus 7T and Realme X2 Pro in terms of performance and offers a good set of cameras. So if you are looking for an S pen then this one is for you.
