The Note 10 Plus's bezels are smaller than nearly any phone Samsung has ever produced. Instead of putting the camera cutout in the top right corner though, Samsung has moved the camera cutout to the top center. I like this design because it doesn't feel like it gets in the way of your content. I was already happy with the Infinity-O display in the S10 series, but this cutout is even smaller. This does come at the expense of a smaller camera aperture compared to the Note 9 ?— another indication that Samsung was obsessive about making this device beautiful. Front-facing camera shots still look great though, so this is a fine trade-off for me.
The game streaming service will go live starting at 9:00AM Pacific Time that morning. November 19th is also when the first Stadia Founder Edition sets should be delivered to the first folks who pre-ordered. The Founders Edition set, in case you need a reminder, includes a Chromecast Ultra, a limited edition Night Blue Stadia controller, plus a 3-month Stadia Pro subscription and a 3-month Stadia Pro buddy pass. Stadia Pro is Google's subscription service that offers a Netflix-for-games experience for $10 per month. Some of those games will include Red Dead Redemption 2, Mortal Kombat 11, and Kine.
The sides of the phone have a much thinner aluminum frame than the Note 9 and even the S10. The glass wraps around the edges more, almost feeling like a solid extruded piece. It looks nicer than a thicker metal frame, but from the moment I saw this phone I was worried about it breaking. Lo and behold, two days later, that became the case. My unit managed to slide off a table onto concrete from about four feet up and hit the bottom left corner, causing hairline fractures. Unfortunately, this is a necessary trade-off. Samsung likely used this glass-heavy design to maintain consistency with the 5G model, which needs more glass on the sides for its mmWave antennas to work. We saw nearly the same design on the Galaxy S10 5G.
