Ubuntu 19.10 also ships with support for WPA3 Wi-Fi security,the Linux 5.3 kernel with support for more hardware, and updated versions of key apps including Firefox, LibreOffice, and Thunderbird, and the operating system also now has native support for the ZFS file system on the root partition. For the most part, these flavors have all the new features included in Ubuntu 19.10, but there are also a number of updates specific to each. For example, Ubuntu Studio includes OBS Studio by default for out-of-the-box support for live streaming, plus almost 100 new audio plugins. And Ubuntu MATE features a lot of bug fixes and patches, plus some changes to default apps.
But when you look at everything as a whole, it's clear what guided the direction of the Note this generation. With the Note 9, Samsung slung huge banner ads reading 4,000mAh and 1TB. These were the major selling points for the phone. With the 10 series, it's not about that at all. The Note 10 Plus is still better than ever, because if it wasn't Samsung's best Note ever, it wouldn't sell any units. But if you look at the key marketing points of the Note 10 series, it is all about design.
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.
AMD's performance claims should put the Radeon VII on par with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080. It had better, as the Radeon VII will occupy the same $699 price point when it becomes available in February.
