Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite vs Galaxy Note 10 Lite vs OnePlus 7T: Design and Display
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite and the Galaxy S10 Lite both come with Samsung's 6.7-inch Infinity O display with fullHD+ Super AMOLED panels. The OnePlus 7T, on the other hand, features a 6.55-inch fullHD+ AMOLED panel with a waterdrop style notch. While all three smartphones come with fullHD+ AMOLED panels, it is Samsung who makes the best panels in the industry. Also, Samsung smartphones come with larger displays when compared to the OnePlus.
As for the design, the front part really depends on the user. While some people will prefer a waterdrop style notch on the top, the Samsung phones offer a punch-hole design to give the phones a modern look. Also, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite and Galaxy S10 Lite feature a Glasstic back design, which is basically a material made out of the mixture of glass and plastic. OnePlus 7T, on the other hand, brings a glass back design offering a more premium look and feel.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite vs Galaxy Note 10 Lite vs OnePlus 7T: Which one to buy?
With all three smartphones offering so much out of the box, the buyers are likely to get confused. OnePlus and Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite are smartphones geared towards the millennials. While the users who game a lot will prefer the 90Hz display on the OnePlus 7T over anything, people who do a lot of smartphone photography might lean towards the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. Galaxy Note 10 Lite, on the other hand, is made for the audience looking for a smartphone that can get things done. With the S-Pen and 3.5mm headphone jack, the Note 10 Lite brings a lot more than the competition. Sure, the 2-year-old Exynos chip might be the concern here but the pros outweigh the cons on this smartphone.
