Power button is no longer next to my thumb.

No finger print sensor on the rear means it's more of a hassle to turn the screen on.

Lack of Pressure sensitive home button is also missed.

New camera is awesome it must be said.

Battery about the same.

Any input or suggestions to help me deal with these drawbacks?

After a few days of use, I realize what a good decision it was to move the power button. I am right handed but hold phone in my left hand.

I felt the same about the fp sensor so I am using face unlock now and surprised how fast it works.

I am getting close to 7 hours of SoT which is about 1.5 - 2 hours more for me than the Note9.

Not sure if I can suggest anything for battery issue. I was getting the same before I debloated as I am getting now after debloating. However, this time around on Note10+ I got rid of a lot of Google apps and using MS apps instead. I know Chrome use to eat more battery than the Samsung Browser or IE and I started to get a lot of notifications about Maps using a lot of background battery.

I would have liked a regular finger print circle or a spot, but I don't need to turn on the screen for the finger print to unlock Note10.

Most of that you knew before buying. So why did you switch?

My thoughts exactly.

No complaints about the power button placement.
