Being a big fan of Samsung Galaxy Note flagships, it made me extremely happy upon knowing that they released a lite version of the powerful Note devices. Though it is a so-called watered down flagship, Galaxy Note 10 Lite can hold its own in the big league. It is the most affordable smartphone with the omnipotent S Pen. Boasting a 6.7'inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O display, Note 10 Lite will surely give you a splendid visual experience be it for media consumption or gaming.
Super AMOLED plus Infinity-O Display
Under the hood, Note 10 Lite is powered by a slightly dated Exynos 9810 processor which is similar to that in a Note 9. Good news is Note 9 is still powerhouse and that makes Note 10 Lite a very capable smartphone as well. It is complemented by a whopping 8GB of RAM plus 128GB of internal storage. Need more space to store your photos and videos? Fret not as there will be external memory support via MicroSD up to 1TB of storage (which is a lot). Being a blogger and content creator, we sometimes shoot ridiculous number of photos which will take lots of space so yeah an expandable storage will be ideal.
128GB+1TB should be more than enough for tonnes of photos!
Triple-camera for the shutterbug in you!
In terms of photography, the main rear shooter is made up of 3 cameras of 12MP for telephoto, wide and ultra-wide. Flip it to the front and you will be greeted by a 32MP selfie camera housed on the tiny punch-hole of the Infinity-O display. There will be a built-in Fingerprint scanner for a more secure, snappy login. Talking about peace of mind. Though the S Pen of Note 10 Lite lacks the gesture features in the more premium variants, it is still works like magic with its 4096 pressure levels for accurate and smooth writing as if you are writing on a piece of paper. Do note that the S Pen of Note 10 Lite is Bluetooth enabled. So you can use it as a remote to snap photos or to control your music. Not bad for an affordable Note flagship right?

Another plus point of Note 10 Lite is its large battery capacity of 4,500mAh which supports USB-C Super Fast Charging. It is claimed that by charging for just 1 hour (60 minutes) you will have enough juice to last for the whole day. Despite lacking wireless charging and IP68 dust and water resistance, Note 10 Lite does come equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack for those who prefer wired music. With a retail price of only RM2,299, Galaxy Note 10 Lite is definitely a steal for those who would love to own a smartphone with S Pen to ramp up your productivity.
