The Samsung S20 Ultra is one of the most feature-rich smartphones on the market - just compare it to the iPhone 11 Pro or Google Pixel 4XL. But do I think it’s the best?

  • I'm happy with my S20. Ultra and Plus seem unnecessary for what I do.

  • I myself will NEVER EVER buy any phone that has taken the liberty in removing the head phone jack, like what the fuck are you thinking you stupid idiots we use that port... nothing is more annoying than having to keep track of an extra cable just to plug your head phones and charger in at the same time or having to convert headphones to type C... so long as Samsung and other android phones keep this garbage up i'll stick with my galaxy s9, why would I pay so much more for a downgrade like that...

  • if your getting a super long scrollable list so long you cant find your notifications i think its time you sit down and organize your phone and configure your notifications, out of all the years I've used android not once have I had such a long list, just eliminate the garbage, for example I get a lot of junk email so I just turn this off however I have a second email that does not get junk email at all just important emails come to this one, so I get notifications on this one... just about any app that advertises, i block the notifications, any game that reminds you to collect your item or that an item has completed upgrading or something, Turn notifications off, there are controls to manage your notification built into the settings...

  • Great phone, I hate it. For Your uses I can see why. For me, it's the best, but that's what makes the world go 'round. Are you shelving this for the Microsoft problem? If so I get it. For most of us it isn't a huge con, but for you it is, and that's important as we all have our deal breakers. Now I sounded like I didn't like your review. I did. You gave me things to think about and I like that.

  • Just bought a 20 ultra exynos. Not gonna buy anything from Samsung. It's totally overpriced and bluffed. The camera and performance dont even match a 3 year old phone.

    • @Tevin25 Exactly. Just forget about what online media says. Despite having a 108mp camera, this phone takes blurry pictures that just can't match a low end camera

    • Its probably because you purchased the Exynos version rather than the Qualcomm Snapdragon chip. I have no clue why Samsung decided to release that version, but they made a huge mistake. Also I agree Samsung devices are becoming way too expensive nowadays, its ridiculous.

  • Gslaxy s20 is rubbish . Wont answer calls easy,clunky cut and paste, with no proper clipboard, not automatic. Vefy poor battery life,half a day on standby, 10 minute Max screen time out ,not good for uber courier's. Browser crashes regularly. One plus was the scan function on the camera. You can do away with your printers scan in many circumstances. Its like holding a razor blade compared to an iPhone. Worst speech recognition and predictive txt ,always end up typing something you didn't mean to check what you type ,keyboard interface is too small for those with large fingers Buy an iPhone you will be happier i think

  • Or how about the Note series is now DOA🤬🤬😡 What a joke Samsung.....way to go, like Other Tech Devices/Companies, sure know how to alienate & piss off your client base. Smart move huh, but hey, like us consumers have a choice right. Know my brand new note 20 I got 11/1; will be traded in/sold when S21 gets released if able to afford; as I’m guessing the price tag will be at least $1700 usd since it’s a S/Note hybrid & sill be most expensive just behind Fold 3 for Samsung phones 🤦🏼

  • I ran into some issues on my Note20 after buying 2days ago i was just using the phone to watch a movie and the phone overheated then the phone went to reset mode by itself. the phone screen setwent to flash mode. I took it back to the store and they said that it voided warranty. i took two a smaller shop to get fix but the man at the shop said the phone is not a software issue. it's because the motherboard burnt out on the phone and that's the reason that code comes out on phone. the phone is not a good quality don't purchase it.

I would really like to see how well it would work with Mobile Phones, Laptop, & interfacing with AR world... I would be Traveling and Driving with the glasses on as a hud, also Love to see how it performs when I fly with a drone... I tried flying and driving at the same time, that didn't go very well for me... But nowadays with the DJI Mavric and follow me features, i could drive and see what my drone sees when it's following me at the same time; Would really like to see how well that technology has improved since 2016.

  • The only real detractors mentioned are the Microsoft shite show that linus uses for work.. "If you're a rich kid" ya kinda lost me there in the muck of your hypocrisy, but after repairing my own stuff for years, that comment came pretty disconnected from the reality of someone who can afford it, and makes such a statement.

  • There's a reason why my current phone is a OnePlus 8 pro and not a S20 plus and that is exynos, don't get me wrong I always knew exynos chips were inferior to snapdragons even on my S10 plus from last but when the gap is this big, it's just a PITA to know that I'm being "literally" scammed out of my money for a product that costs full price but is only worth 80-90% of said price

  • I have an S20 ultra, it's great. But... Linus is spot on when he says there isn't much difference between previous generations. For me new Samsung phones gave the impression that they were polishing and perfecting from the s8-s10, but the s20 makes me fear that they're falling into the same phone every year trap. I love the phone and I've been loyal to Samsung since the s4, but I've been strongly considering a switch up after having the since buying the s20 upon release.

  • Bought the Exynos variant of the S20 5G a few days ago. The battery life is extremely bad, worse than my 2017 OnePlus 5 it was supposed to be replacing. I've already gone through disabling apps I don't use, removing a lot of Samsung and Google bloatware via ADB shell commands, enabling power save mode, screen resolution to HD+, disabling 120hz etc. None of it worked. Absolutely disgraceful. The phone came with 300+ system apps by default, which was only part of the problem. The Exynos chipset just doesn't seem to be very power efficient.

    Tech & Nostalgia KingdomTech & Nostalgia KingdomBulan Yang lalu
  • I was going to buy it but if the exynos is not that good here in Europe I'm not buying it anymore. I want my battery to drain as slow as it can so I'll wait for the next Samsung flagship.

    • @Tech & Nostalgia Kingdom why did you not return it and search something with snapdragon? I saw they import it in my country on some sites so I'm going to try it. I'll wait 2- 3 month maybe for the price to be lower than 1000$.
