The Galaxy Note 10 Plus is Samsung's biggest, boldest Galaxy Note yet. It has a slimmer design, more screen than ever before, and an S Pen that has learned some new tricks. Almost all of its new features are in the name of refinement, but that refinement is dictated by design and mass-market appeal, not necessarily by functionality.
The mini laptop is powered by a 7-watt, 14nm quad-core processor with a base CPU speed of 1 GHz and a max turbo speed of 4 GHz. It's unclear what that will mean in terms of a real-world performance boost over previous-gen mini-laptops which typically topped out at 5 watt Intel Core i7-8500Y dual-core chips with 1.5 GHz and 4.2 GHz boost speeds.
Huawei is having a bad time. You wouldn't know it by looking at the Mate 30 Pro, a gleaming piece of kit that exudes luxury and cutting-edge tech. But then you unlock the phone and reality comes crashing in: there's no Gmail on this thing, or YouTube, or Google Maps. Worse, there's nothing Huawei can do to help. You're supposed to find your own alternatives, hunt down APKs on third-party app stores, or resort to web apps.
However, I, and many others, are getting pretty frustrated with how the company is handling the rollout of Android 10 to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. Three weeks ago today, on September 21, the company announced on its official forums that a stable rollout of Android 10 was starting for the OnePlus 7 series. This didn't make OnePlus the first company to push a stable build of the latest version of Android to a handset, but proved it is still one of the fastest companies in the industry in that metric.
