My wife, a professional photographer, and I took the plunge a few months ago and only took our phone cameras on our trip to Hawaii. We were so impressed with the images from the Samsung Galaxy S10+ that we decided to up-the-annite and only take our phone cameras on our dream trip to Europe. This time with my new Samsung Galaxy Note 10+. So... how did it do?
First, let’s do a quick overview of the cameras on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
The Galaxy Note 10+ has four lenses:
Primary Lens: 12-megapixel variable aperture (between f/1.5 and f/2.4) with optical image stabilization
TelephotoLens: 12-megapixel f/2.1 telephoto lens returning a 2x optical zoom
Front Selfie Lens: 10-megapixel f/2.2 auto-focus selfie lens with 2 focal lengths for when your selfie becomes a groupie.
In addition to the lenses, Samsung has included an LED light and a time-of-flight sensor. The time-of-light sensor is a small laser that measures the distance to the subject.
With a variable aperture that goes as low as 1.5, this is the best lens to use at night. This lens did not disappoint us. It was very responsive with great colors and resolution.

Wide Angle Lens:
In Europe I fell in love with the wide-angle lens. Europe is larger than life, and I needed the wide-angle-lens to help me capture all of it. Whether I was trying to capture a scenic view or a narrow city street, the wide-angle lens helped me better capture the whole picture and provide additional context in the image. With the thousands of tourists at every turn, it was also nice to be able to get in front of the crowds and capture the picture instead of backing up into the crowds. As with most wide-angle lenses, there is a little distortion on the edges. You can’t tell in the scenic views, but in some of the close-up shots it is easier to spot. In my next tutorial I will show how to fix the distortion with the Vertical Perspective function within the Samsung Note 10+ camera editor.

On this trip I didn’t use the Telephoto lens as much as I anticipated. It provided great detail the few times that I did use it.
With one of the lowest apertures on any phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ does an amazing job with images in low lighting. These were taken with my primary lens.

I am very satisfied with the quality of images that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ produces . There were a few times that I wish I had our nice DSLR camera. However, with the hundreds of miles we walked, it was really nice to simply pull my Note 10+ out of my pocket and take the picture without lugging around a large camera bag.
