Windows 10 'Your Phone' screen mirroring works on any PC with the Galaxy Note 10
The Galaxy Note 10 and Windows 10's screen mirroring feature work together without the need of Bluetooth.
Microsoft's screen mirroring feature, part of the Your Phone app on Windows 10 has been frustratingly limited to a handful of PC's that support Bluetooth LE, and a small collection of Android phones. Right now, Microsoft and Samsung have been working together on a new mobile partnership that see's the Redmond giant work to integrate Microsoft software with Samsung hardware, starting with the Galaxy Note 10.

Because of this, the Your Phone integration between the Galaxy Note 10 and Windows 10 PC's is much improved. I've been using Your Phone for just a couple of hours, and the connection between my Surface Studio and Galaxy Note 10+ has been better than it ever has been on other phones. Notification sync is instant, as is sending messages. In addition to this, the ability to use screen mirroring is functional without the need of Bluetooth.
Yes! The new Note10 can use the phone screen feature on any Windows PC running 1903, no need for Bluetooth.Yes! The new Note10 can use the phone screen feature on any Windows PC running 1903, no need for Bluetooth.— Analy Otero Diaz (@AnalyMsft) August 22, 2019August 22, 2019
This means the Galaxy Note 10 can take advantage of the Your Phone screen mirroring feature on any Windows 10 PC running version 1903 and up. This has been confirmed by Analy Otero Diaz, a senior program manager lead at Microsoft who is working on these mobile experiences.
This is just one example of how Microsoft is treating the Galaxy Note 10. Microsoft and Samsung announced a new partnership at the Galaxy Note 10 launch event, which see's Microsoft treating the Note 10, and likely future Galaxy devices, as first class citizens in the Microsoft ecosystem. Microsoft has also announced that the ability to make cellular calls through Your Phone on Windows 10 will be coming via the Galaxy Note 10 later this year as well.

Biggest and best
The best of Samsung in a single phone.
Samsung improved on the Note 9 in every way … except for removing the headphone jack. But the big display, top-end specs, wide-angle camera, and huge battery could make up for it.

The UI is really weird, huge thumbnails of photos, different effects for right click menu, jumping left menu when clicking on settings (because of Microsoft's wonderful idea to place the back button right into the app, which doesn't make sense now, when they removed sets.), they just removed Acryllic transparency (why?) ... Would also be nice to have an apps section, where it shows your apps on your phone installed. When you click on something, it fires up screen mirroring, right in that specific app, so it feels like a native app in Windows.
