    Hello All,

    I know this is a impossible question to answer as it comes down to personal preference....but...which phone would you go for?

    The way I see it both have limitations that the other phone does better...

    s10 5G, has a 3.5 headphone jack, Note 10 5G doesn't
    s10 5G, no expandable memory, Note 10 5G has expandable memory
    s10 5G, has a better front facing camera?

    Given the stylus isn't a must have (for me) which would you go for?

    I'd like a headphone jack, but would also like expandable memory..why isn't there a phone with both!!!

    (I know...more of a mini rant than I question, currently have a s7 Edge so will keep the new phone a few years)

    Anyone offer any advice or point me to the best deal?

    Note Plus has/will a better general availability than S10 5G, in fact going by quick look it's already cheaper than the S10 5G.

    I'd go for Note 10 Plus, had they put headphone jack in it ;)

    You can easily solve the issues with the headphone jack with a small adapter. You can't fix the no expandable storage option (well, just buy the biggest and surely that's enough?)

    Oh believe me, when you start using the Stylus, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

    With a blue light card discount the phones are currently priced (Samsung Website)
    s10 5G £989.10
    Note 10 5G (256GB) £1,099.00

    Yet the comparison websites all have the s10 5G more expensive (still cheaper than buying the phone outright and SIM separably.)

    Now leaning towards the Note 10...although the front camera is better on the s10 5G...:confused:
    (I'm always like this with tech stuff!)

    Are you likely to be using it a lot or just looking at the specs?

    I hear what you are saying and part of me thinks I should save the cash and get a Note 9 512 (great deals on them at the mo) but I'll keep the phone for probably 3 years, my thought process is it'll cost ~£1 a day so why not get the best available for that money...

    I do enjoy taking pictures and video's more than gaming on a phone.

    Personally I don't use the selfie camera a lot, very rare in fact, so an extra depth sensor on it wouldn't factor into my decision process between two phones.
