Basic Operation of Galaxy Note10/10+

Last Update date : Nov 23. 2020
Does Galaxy Note10/10+ support external microSD card?

Only Galaxy Note10+ devices support external microSD Card. Galaxy Note10 does not support a microSD slot to maximize battery capacity to secure usage time.



microSD cards sold separately.

Why does not Galaxy Note10/10+ support a 3.5pi earphone/headphone jack?

Galaxy Note10/10+ removed the 3.5pi earphone jack to pursue additional values.

By deleting the 3.5pi jack, devices achieve design perfection, allowing the slimmest Note device with 7.9 mm.

It also allows expanding battery capacity. For alternatives of the 3.5pi earphone jack, you can use the following earphones.

  · In-box : USB C-type AKG Earphones

  · Purchase separately : Galaxy Buds Wireless Earphone, USB C-type to 3.5pi adapter

As some USB Type-C earphones and USB Type-C adapters may not be compatible with your device and some features may not work properly, make sure that they are compatible with the device before you purchase.

Is it possible to use on-screen fingerprint when protective film is attached?

We recommend using Samsung-approved screen protective film. Samsung cannot guarantee compatibility with 3’rd party products because they may affect fingerprint performance, depending on the thickness and structure of protective film or screen protective items. Please note that on-screen fingerprint may not work if the thickness of the film is over 0.2mm.

Is it possible to use on-screen fingerprint under water?

No, it is not possible. The device is IP68-certified but fingerprint recognition is blocked when the device is under water.
