Android version and market relevance

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G was announced by the company Samsung in August 2020 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones Samsung Galaxy Note. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G works on Android 10, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G implemented support for working with two SIM cards and support for 5G networks (all 5G-smartphones).

And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2020” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G — this is the price segment page “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Screen, body and battery

Good big 6.9-inch screen, made by technology Dynamic AMOLED 2X with screen refresh rate 120 Hz (see all smartphones with screens 120 Hz in the catalog) installed in the smartphone Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G the thickness of the case is 8.1 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body. In addition, the screen area in relation to the body area affects the positive feeling of the phone in the hands. This model has a screen area of more than 90% of the body area (in the catalog we have collected all frameless smartphones). And one more thing, the screen area is increased thanks to the upper cutout above it, while the body area remains unchanged. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G received a cutout in the form of a small hole at the top of the screen for a selfie camera and multiple sensors. Check out detailed photos of this smartphone for a better understanding of how it looks in real life.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G installed battery for 4 500 mAh, and this is a fairly good reserve of capacity, which is exactly enough for you for one day with average usage.

Of the features of the case and form factor, it is worth noting protection against ingress of water and dust inside the body and, built-in case, stylus. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (triple camera smartphones): 108 MP Wide + 12 MP Periscope telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G has one module: 10 MP Wide. And this, of course, is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Exynos 990. Another manufacturer is releasing a version of this model with 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 865+. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 12 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 128/256/512 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G: buy or not to buy?

Price Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G at the start of sales was $1270. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and got a very powerful processor, a huge touch screen, and the front camera is not too cool with a super cool main camera, and you can make very high quality and creative photos with it.

If you want to buy Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
