Yesterday, in the late evening of August 7, Samsung presented to the public its new flagship phone in the face of the Galaxy Note 10, which was released in two versions. These differ in size and support for 5G networks because only the most expensive model is able to work in such. As you would expect, a lot of pre-written reviews of this mobile device instantly appeared on the network, in which journalists and bloggers around the world talk about what advantages the novelty contains and why it is worth buying. However, this is far from a rational purchase.
There are at least three main reasons why the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is not worth buying, and they are relevant not only for residents of the United States but also for citizens of any other countries. Perhaps someone will consider them nonsense, but for most people, they are guaranteed to be very relevant.
The main reason why you should not buy this flagship in any of its versions is the price. The base cheapest model was estimated at $1182 USD, while for the configuration of Note 10+ with 5G support they were already asking for $1382 USD.

Such prices make the new flagship of the South Korean corporation the most expensive mobile device based on Android, and it is unlikely to cost that much money. If when you buy Apple gadgets, their high cost is explained by at least the uniqueness of the iOS operating system and the company’s highly developed ecosystem, then Samsung simply can not offer anything.
Another reason to refuse to buy the Galaxy Note 10 is the lack of a 3.5 mm headphone jack. It’s not that now you can connect music devices via wire only using an adapter, but in a completely different way.
Back in 2016, when Apple removed the audio jack from the iPhone, Samsung published an advertisement in which it mocked such an act. Now, three years later, she did exactly the same, and all the videos on the topic of rejecting 3.5 mm were deleted. This suggests that the South Korean brand is simply looking for a reason to draw attention to its products, but there is nothing good about it.
An equally important reason Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is not worth buying is Android 9.0 Pie. This OS is installed on this flagship out of the box, and the update to Android 10 Q, which Google will release this month, will receive this phone for a huge amount of money, most likely, not earlier than December.
Such terms were relevant for all previous Galaxy Note models, so it is unlikely that anything will change regarding the new flagship. It can only be updated to the new actual OS only in January-February 2020 and before this very event another six months. Earlier it became known that the South Korean corporation Samsung introduced an amazing smartwatch Galaxy Watch Active 2 with the ability to do ECG.
