This Killer Samsung Cyber Monday deal takes $400 off the Galaxy Note 10

OK, this has to be one of our favorite deals for smartphones this Cyber Monday (obviously after Black Friday deals). The 256 GB Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and 256 GB Note 10 Plus are both $400 off from Best Buy right now. There are also quite a few iPhone deals as well if you’re more about that iOS, but many of them are ending tonight.

These two gorgeous devices represent two of the best phones you can get in 2019. With a triple-camera setup in the Note 10 and a quadruple in the case of the Note 10 Plus, including its ToF sensor, Samsung’s strong photography prowess shows through. They’re certain contenders for best camera phone of 2019. Both of which sport a telephoto, regular, and wide-angle lens for great versatility and quality in your shots.

Of course, they’re more than just great camera phones. With some of the best internals you can get in an Android phone, the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus are quick with multitasking, fluid with gaming, and achieve daylong battery life. They’re replete with power and storage, starting at 256 GB internal memory, 8 GB of RAM in the Note 10 and 12 GB RAM in the Note 10 Plus, and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processors. Not to mention that they have some of the most gorgeous screens we’ve laid eyes on. The super-thing bezels, and all-screen design will have you lost in the infinity pool that is the screen.

Lest we forget the S Pen, which not only adds the feature of its namesake — the ability to create handwritten notes on your phone — but also now transcribes them for you and can send them off to Microsoft Word documents if you’d like. All of this is in addition to the new gestures and functions added to control music playback, the camera, and even a PowerPoint presentation, all with your S Pen.

The Samsung Cyber Monday sale is spread across more than just smartphones. We’ve already found big discounts on Samsung monitors, 4K TVs, and Samsung Galaxy Active 2 smartwatches. Considering it’s not even Monday yet, be sure to keep an eye out for more deals as they go live.

Indeed, if you’re seeking to win Black Friday, look no further than Samsung’s latest deals.

Should the Galaxy S22 Ultra replace your Note 20 Ultra?
Galaxy S22 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra screens held in hand.

If the S Pen is like an extension of your body, then you’ve probably stuck with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra since it was released, unwilling to compromise by getting an S21 Ultra and the S Pen case accessory. But now Samsung has the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and it comes with an S Pen stylus inside the body. Does that mean it’s time to upgrade, and if so, what else should you expect?

I’ve given the two a back-to-back workout to see if now is the time for Note 20 Ultra owners to get a new phone.
Hold the phones
There is almost no difference whatsoever between the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Note 20 Ultra when you hold them both. It’s uncanny how similar the two are, with the same flat end caps, the same sharply curved sides, and essentially identical dimensions. Even the placement of the speaker grille on the bottom of both phones is exactly the same. However, Samsung decided the 208 gram Note 20 Ultra wasn’t heavy enough and added another 20 grams to the overall weight of the S22 Ultra.

Samsung tweaks Galaxy S22 refresh rate specs before release
Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus screens side-by-side.

Samsung has quietly changed display specs for the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus less than two weeks before the launch of the new flagship lineup. When the S22 series was first revealed during February's Galaxy Unpacked 2022, Samsung's marketing boasted that the phones' screens would have variable refresh rates to optimize battery life dipping as low as 1Hz per second. This detail has been backtracked as the display information in the most recent press releases states that the refresh rate now ranges from 48Hz to 120Hz.

Variable refresh rates are a pretty big deal as they can greatly lengthen the battery life of a device by dropping the rate when displaying things such as ebooks, pictures, or web content. For phones, a device where every minute of charge counts, the Galaxy S22's reduced range could make a big difference for some users.
