Samsung’s Galaxy S10 series gets Note 10 features in new software update

The Note 10 series debuted with new features targeted at creatives and power users, solidifying the device as the phone for power users, but thanks to new software update many of these features are now available on the S10 series.

The almost 600MB update has begun rolling out to South African S10 series Exynox powered devices and includes AR Doodle, a built-in video editor, an upgraded DeX experience and Link to Windows integration.

The update also includes an update to the camera’s Night Mode to include support for the front-facing camera as well – which should make your after dark selfies even better. It also introduces enhanced Super steady video stabilization, as well as support for dynamic Galaxy Note10 functions like AR Doodle and Live focus video recording. The former lets you enhance your videos with what Samsung says are fun, augmented-reality drawings, and messages (but are really just fun party tricks that you’ll use a handful of times) while the latter lets you apply bokeh effects (including blur, big circle, color point and glitch) to videos recorded with the front or rear camera.

To make the S10 even more useful to anyone shooting video on the go, the Gallery app-accessible video editor has new versatile features which “makes it easy to edit videos like a pro and features simple tools for trimming clips, stitching them together, adjusting playback speed and more. You can even use the function to add subtitles and background music to clips to make your content more unique.”

The update also incorporates support for Samsung DeX for PC. Once you download the app from SamsungDeX.com, you’ll be able to launch Samsung DeX on their PC or Mac simply by connecting your Galaxy S10 to your computer via USB cable. Link to Windows support has also been added, which means that you’ll be able to wirelessly connect your phone to your Windows 10 PC and easily view its contents, send and receive messages, and sync recent photos directly from your computer.

As Jiyoung Mun, an engineer at Samsung Electronics’ Mobile R&D Office, explained, the Galaxy S10’s update reflects Samsung’s commitment to offering more users access to exceptional innovations. “At Samsung Electronics, we’re constantly exploring ways to offer Galaxy device users the best possible smartphone experience, and this software update is an extension of that commitment,” said Mun.

With so many Note 10 flagship features being ported over to the S10, is it still worth buying a Note 10 (or Note 10+) over an S10 or S10+?
