The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is one of the company’s most ambitious phones. It’s built beautifully, packs incredible hardware, and is future proof to a respectable extent. The phone is probably the best piece of hardware your money can buy right now, and it’s expected to keep its crown at least for the next half a year.

Despite being an exceptional device, the Galaxy Note 10 is not without flaws. It can still freeze and stutter from time to time, leaving you with no choice other than performing a force restart. Thankfully, the process is quite straightforward and doesn’t take much of your time.
