The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is this year’s Samsung flagship phone. The Note series from Samsung is known for its big screen and a big battery. Similarly, this year Samsung launched the new Note 20 series. The new Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is bigger than other phones with a 6.9″ display. The phone looks really nice with sharp edges and a curved display. Other things aside, Samsung is playing it unfairly by shipping phones with different processors in different countries. (ie Snapdragon in the US and Exynos in Asia and Europe). Samsung Galaxy Note 20 ultra price in Nepal is less than compared with India.

Display

The 6.9″ 120Hz AMOLED display is amazing. Watching movies and playing games on this big screen sure is fun. The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has the best AMOLED display compared to other phones on the market. The phone uses LTPO backplane technology, which means the phone will decrease the refresh rate according to the content on the screen. This is a really impressive feature as it helps in the betterment of battery life. The screen refresh rate can go as low as 10 fps while viewing static images, 25 fps while watching movies, and 60/120 fps while playing games or scrolling through social media.

The brightness setting on the phone is really good, the screen gets very bright (1500 nits) so it is easier to use the phone in direct sunlight. The curved display looks good but while holding the phone there are accidental touches.

The in-display ultrasonic fingerprint is fast and gets the job done, but it is not as fast as OnePlus phones.

Camera

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a triple camera layout on the back. The first thing you notice when seeing the phone is that huge camera bump. The camera bump is big enough for you to notice while sliding it in/out of the pocket. Due to this huge bump, there are many chances of dust getting in the corners and maybe scratching the glass.

The main 108MP wide camera lens takes amazing photos in any light conditions. The laser autofocus sensor is fast and focuses on desired objects edge-to-edge. The 12MP periscope telephoto camera lens has a 50x hybrid zoom, the picture quality isn’t good but it gets the job done. Lastly, the 12MP ultra-wide camera lens takes good photos with good image resolution.

The punch hole 10MP front-facing selfie camera auto-tunes faces too much, other than that the camera gives impressive results.

Both the front and the rare cameras are capable of taking 4k 60fps video with good image stabilization and background exposer. The rare camera is also capable of filming an 8k 24fps video, but the outcome doesn’t meet the expectations.

The only downside of the camera is the shutter lag. There is a very noticeable shutter lag if you take rapid pictures which is annoying. Overall the cameras on this phone are perfect. The ring around the camera gets an additional point for looks.

Build

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a typical glass sandwich flagship phone built. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the only phone which has Gorilla Glass Victus on the back and the front. The new Gorilla Glass Victus is stronger than other gorilla glasses, it is two times more scratch resistance and can easily survive a 2m fall as written on the paper. The phone looks really nice with sharp edge finish and matte glass finish.

The back camera is not protected with Gorilla Glass Victus so you might want to secure it from scratches by using either tempered glass or a phone case. The phone is IP-68 certified, which means it is water & dust resistance.

Samsung decided to re-locate the S-pen to the left side, you may find it uncomfortable at first, but you will get used to it fast.

Performance

Talking about the performance Samsung plays it unfairly, not only in Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra but every Samsung phone is shipped with different chipsets in different countries. The US and Korea get Qualcomm whereas other countries get Exynos. The Qualcomm chipset is way better than Samsung’s Exynos. The devices with Exynos chipset are inferior to Qualcomm chipsets and users claim to have the worst camera sensors, worst battery life, and CPU throttle with overheating problems in devices with Exynos chipset. Tests show there is up to 20% performance difference between those two variants. Which is not so cool about Samsung.

The Snapdragon 865+ is a great flagship chipset that is blazing fast, which gives good battery life and decent standby battery. Not only that but the devices with Qualcomm chipset are shipped with Adrino 650 GPU whereas the devices with Exynos chipset are shipped with Mali-G77 MP11 GPU.

The phone comes in 3 different variants in case of internal space; 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB all with 12GB ram.

Battery

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is packed with 4500mAh. The battery should last a full day even with a 120hz screen thanks to LTPO backplane technology. The battery with Qualcomm chipset will not have any issue with battery drain but with the Exynos chipset, the battery may suffer. Standby battery life isn’t the best even in devices with Qualcomm chipset.

The phone is packed with 25W fast charge, the phone juices up from 0-100 in an hour but with wireless charging it will take longer.

Additional features

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra’s Pen is faster this year with 9ms latency. Writing notes on a 120hz screen with the low latency pen will feel very smooth and feel like actually writing on a paper. The pen also features gesture mode which doesn’t seem to be working flawlessly. Samsung should improve the gesture mode on this phone.

As previous Samsung flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is capable of reverse wireless charging. The vibration motors are great on this phone.

The stereo speakers are loud and clear, the downside of the speaker is it can easily be blocked.
