Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra which one is the king?


It's another August and it's time for a new Galaxy Note series… It has become a tradition in the world of technology and, as always, we met the new Samsung Galaxy Note phone, more precisely the phones, at the beginning of August. This year, as last year, two new members were introduced under the Note series. These models, which have different screen sizes, attract attention with their larger screens and sizes compared to their predecessors. We have Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, the top class member of the series. With its 6.9-inch ultra-high resolution screen, the S Pen capacitive stylus that works faster and gains new capabilities, and its three rear cameras, this phone is aimed at users who want high performance in both business and private life. In this article, we will give you a quick review regarding Samsung Note 20 Ultra.

On the other hand, with its 108 MP, 5000 mAh, 16 GB of RAM, and 120 Hz, the Galaxy S20 Ultra is positioned as a real technological showcase for Samsung. It can even claim to be the best smartphone passed in our laboratories.

While Samsung intends to position itself as the leader in foldable smartphones, the manufacturer does not abandon the very high end of rigid mobiles. It, therefore, offers this year, in addition to the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 +, a particularly ambitious version. Named Galaxy S20 Ultra, this luxury version offers a spectacular technical sheet that leaves nothing to chance.

Launched at 1,500USD, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is positioned against what is best in terms of smartphones. Its competitors are therefore the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but also the most aggressive of all, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10. In this article, we will make a comparison between the Note 20 Ultra and S20 Ultra to see which one the king is.

S20 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra which one is the king?

 Design &Display.

   
Galaxy Note series is known for having products with a sharper angular design than the S series. With the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, this tradition is not broken. When viewed from the front, Note 20 Ultra looks no different from its predecessor Note 10 Plus. Of course, when you put the two devices side by side, there is a slight difference in size in favor of the new phone. On the thickness side, the Note 20 Ultra makes a difference of 8.1 millimeters by about 0.2 millimeters. On the weight side, it looks ahead by 208 grams and 12 grams. Despite the increase in dimensions and weight, it is not difficult to hold the Note 20 Ultra with one hand and use it.

  This is due to the slightly rough surface of the back. Do not immediately think of this roughness of a negative use. The back of the Note 20 Ultra looks really stylish with its frosted glass-like surface. Even the fairly large, protruding camera module, located in the upper left corner, is designed to be pleasing to the eye. The S20 Ultra also has such a large and protruding camera module. However, with the Note 20 Ultra, the design of this module has been made more pleasant. However, as we said, this module, which protrudes quite a lot, causes the Note 20 Ultra to move in place when you put the Note 20 Ultra on the table and want to write or draw with the S Pen, especially when you apply pressure to the upper left corner of the phone. This may disturb you a little while doing business.
 
Samsung has used solid Gorilla Glass glasses, more precisely new generation Victus glasses, in this phone. The edges are completely covered with a stainless steel frame. It is a very stylish looking device and it really gives you the feeling that you are using a high-end phone for the money given for it. 
 
 One of the important design changes made this year is the relocation of the S Pen socket. The S Pen slot, which has been positioned on the right side at the bottom edge for years, has been moved to the left with the Note 20 series. The old layout was very practical for right-handers, it was possible to remove the S Pen from its socket without turning the phone by hand. It does not take much to get used to the new place, but it is necessary to turn the phone to the side and try to access the S Pen socket. Apart from this, there is no problem in removing and using the pen from its holder.
 
  The handset and second speakers are placed in a very small area at the top of this screen and appear vaguely. Despite its thin and long structure, there is no problem in sound output both in phone calls and when listening to something. At the top edge is the second microphone and nano-SIM / microSD card tray. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G version we have is a dual-line supported, but you have to stop using a microSD card to install the second SIM card. Considering that the 256 GB capacity of the phone is sufficient, this will not cause much trouble.
  
In last year's Note 10 series models, the volume and power keys were on the left side. In the S20 series released at the beginning of this year, we saw that these keys were moved to the right. Samsung is now implementing this change in the Note 20 series. It is good to move these keys to the right. When holding it with the right or left hand, it is easier to use the volume keys on the right and the side key, and your fingers make less effort to access the keys. The protrusion of the keys is sufficient, not too soft. There is no problem with usage.
 
On the flip side, The S20 Ultra also shares the same material structure and properties as the other products of the Galaxy S20 family. Glass and metal combination comes with design. The friction of the glass surface is sufficient, so it is possible to hold and use the phone without slipping. On the other hand, it also has water and dust resistance, which is documented with IP68 certification. During the summer days, we are in, you can use the S20 Ultra by the sea or the pool with peace of mind without worrying about water. It will not cause any headache in case of use in the rain or dropping into a puddle in the winter.

The S20 Ultra is the phone with the largest body in the series. At the launch of the Galaxy S20 series, the Ultra model looked like it was a pretty big phone amongst the others. However, after we started to experience the phone, we found that the large body did not cause much trouble. Of course, it's a bigger and heavier phone than the Galaxy S20 Plus. However, we did not have any difficulties in handling or carrying it in a pocket.

Samsung has placed the screen protective film from the very beginning. Even though minor scratches begin to appear on it after a few days, it seems that you can use it for a long time without removing the screen protector film. Samsung uses Corning Gorilla Glass 6 glass on the front and back of this phone. Since the front is covered with glass, it is protected from the very beginning. There are no noticeable scratches or abrasions on the back, either. However, we have to say that the glass surface is very generous in retaining fingerprints and dirt.

On the lower edge of the S20 Ultra, there is a USB-C port, microphone, and speaker. While there is no input or output on the left side, there are volume keys and a power button on the right side. On the upper edge, there is a microphone, nano-SIM card, and microSD card tray. On the back is a camera module that is quite wide and protrudes considerably. Here, too, there are four cameras, a flash, and a third microphone. The Samsung logo is also placed towards the bottom.

  As far as display is concerned,  Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comes with a 6.9 Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen. The bezel surrounding the screen is quite thin. The Note 20 Ultra's screen curves sideways on both long sides. Unlike the flat screen which the Note 20 model has.  The amount of curvature is not large, but when trying to use the phone with one hand, it may be possible to touch the edges and enter unwanted commands. It would be appropriate for Samsung to fine-tune the sensitivity on the edges of the screen a little more with the software update. There's a camera hole centered at the top of the screen, a Samsung classic.  It occupies 91.7% of the front of the device. Samsung Galaxy M31 has a 1440 x 3088 resolution with 496 PPi.

 The screen has a high brightness and offers comfortable use even in bright sunlight. If you want to take videos or photos outside or look for directions to your destination, the screen will not be a problem in terms of vision. The black color depth of the screen is high, which helps the colors look more vivid and eye-catching. The viewing angles are also high, even when looking at the screen from the side, there is not much change in color and brightness. It is possible to adjust the color temperature and white balance of the screen according to your wishes.

 There's a camera hole centered at the top of the screen, a Samsung classic. This hole has been kept as small as possible. It does not cause visual disturbances when watching something or playing games in full screen. on the rear, there is a triple-camera block lined up vertically.

  HDR10 + support is one of the striking features. In this way, you can see the difference between a wider range of colors and capture the details better while watching videos, movies, and series supported by multimedia services such as YouTube and Netflix. Apart from that, the 120Hz refresh rate is also one of the main screen features. However, just like the Galaxy S20 series, this support is offered in Full HD + resolution in the Note 20 series. Moreover, Samsung determines the refresh rate at this resolution to be adaptable to the content. In other words, instead of a continuous 120Hz refresh rate, it is increased to 120Hz if necessary in videos or games. Or you can see that the transitions are smoother when navigating the user interface when you select the Adaptive mode. If you want to use WQHD + at maximum resolution then you should settle for a standard 60 Hz refresh rate. Here the choice is up to you, but our preference was for the highest resolution overall. Of course, this will also have a slightly negative impact on battery life.
 
 On the audio side, we see that the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra continues the line of previous flagship Samsung phones. The two speakers placed on the lower edge and just above the screen provide a sound output very close to the stereo level. The loudness of the sound is high and the environmental impact is good. You can watch YouTube videos or Netflix content without the need for an external speaker. Also, if you want to listen to songs from Spotify or other music services with your friends, the Note 20 Ultra's speakers alone will be sufficient.

 Of course, the most important feature that distinguishes Galaxy Note series phones from others is the S Pen. As we mentioned above, the slot for the stylus has been moved from right to left. However, old features are preserved as they are, even new ones have been brought over. The S Pen, which previously provided the use of photos, managing the camera interface, remote control in applications such as YouTube, now offers special gestures for tasks such as back, main screen, multitasking, and screenshot taking in the user interface. It takes a while to learn these gestures, and there is little reason for them to be used after the phone is not standing away on a table. Still, Samsung has implemented this control job well. When you make an S Pen gesture, the S Pen sign that appears on the screen shows you whether you are doing the movement correctly. When you click this S Pen sign, you access the Contactless Command screen and you can access all the functions you can perform with the S Pen from here. There is also the Closed Screen Note feature that allows you to remove the pen and write or draw on the screen when the screen is off.
 
 The Samsung Notes application is the area where the drawings you make or the notes you take with the S Pen are stored. Samsung now allows these to sync with Microsoft's services such as One Note, To-Do, One Drive. Also, if you own another Samsung device, your notes are synced with the Samsung Notes contents there. In other words, you can see a note you have saved in Note 20 Ultra in the Samsung Notes application in Tab S7 and you can make edits there.
  
The Samsung Notes app works well for searching notes you take manually. Now, for those who cannot take notes straight on a blank page, it offers an automatic correction feature that allows keeping notes that look smoother. For the notes, you keep diagonally, just select the smoothing option from the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. There is also a useful feature for those who both record and take notes in situations such as meetings or interviews. Moreover, when you click on any note on the screen while listening to the audio recording later, the audio recording skips the place where you took that note. We think that this feature will be very useful for those who do interviews.
 
Contrastingly, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with a 6.9  Dynamic AMOLED 2X corner-to-corner display with curved edges. The screen occupies 89.9% of the front of the device. The S20 Ultra has a 1440 x 3200 resolution just like the S20 Plus model with 511 PPI. However, it is possible to use the screen of the phone with a lower resolution setting. In fact, there is no big difference between QHD + and FHD + resolution at normal operating distance. However, we generally preferred to use the phone in the highest resolution.


If you prefer Full HD + resolution in screen resolution, you can also take advantage of the 120Hz refresh rate feature of the screen. The higher refresh rate offers a smoother visuality in user interface transitions and web page scrolling. It also shows the difference in games that support high graphics speeds on the game side. Apart from that, let's also mention that the screen changes the refresh rate dynamically according to the content. Generally, the 120Hz refresh rate doesn't make much of a difference, but those who like smoother transitions can enable this setting by sacrificing resolution.

The screen of the S20 Ultra has high brightness, deep blacks, and high contrast. The colors are vivid, which gives a more intense and better experience when viewing photos and videos. It is possible to adjust the color temperature of the screen as you wish. You can also use the Blue light filter that considers eye health. The viewing angles of the screen are high, and we can say that the screen hole at the top does not scratch much while playing games or watching videos.

The S20 Ultra has two speakers. One of them is at the bottom and the other is placed on the handset at the top of the screen. The volume of the two speakers is at almost the same level, so stereo sound is largely provided. The sound quality is good, the treble is not overdone at full volume. Although the bass is not very high, a little bit of influence can be felt. You can listen to music or watch videos with your friends without connecting any speakers to the S20 Ultra. The speakers of the phone will be enough for you.

   Operating System and Processor


 Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comes with two choices: Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus ( USA) and Exynos 990 ( Global) processor. Both processors are built using 7nm Plus for better performance. 

Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with the Exynos 990( Global) or Qualcomm Snapdragon 865(USA). The processor is built using a 7nm process for extreme power efficiency, and the phone has a neural engine on board for AI-related tasks.

  As for the GPU, the USA version comes with Adreno 650. While the global one has the Maili G72 MP11 as the GPU.

   In the Geekbench test, we see that this phone achieves roughly the same results as the S20 Ultra.  the Note 20 Ultra scored 951 for single-core and 2801 for multicores. While the S20 Ultra scored 905 points for the single-core and 3358 for the multicores.

 Galaxy Note 20 Ultra offers the high performance we expect from a flagship phone. The phone boots up in a short time, transitions in the user interface are smooth and fast, applications and games are launched without waiting. Note 20 Ultra will allow you to work comfortably for tasks such as photo editing and video making. We can say that the phone does not bother about heating, based on a week we experienced. It also offers the performance expected from a flagship phone in terms of gaming.

  According to the operating system, Samsung Note 20 Ultra runs on Android 10 with Samsung's famous UI, One UI 2.5 user interface. It is not clearly seen what kind of differences are there according to the user interface we see in the S20 series. However, Samsung offers Note 20 users some remarkable innovations on the productivity side.

  One of them is wireless DeX. DeX, which started out a few years ago as an accessory that allows the Galaxy Note series phone to be used as a desktop computer, has now become a software solution. By connecting the Note 20 Ultra to your PC or Mac computer, you can access the phone's user interface as a desktop computer, and use the internet browser, Office applications, and various supported applications in full screen. Moving content between devices is also made easier with the drag-and-drop method. This part of the business is not new anymore, the new part is that DeX can now be used without cables. Wireless DeX works particularly well in connection with TVs, allowing the connection to be set up wirelessly and the Note 20 Ultra's interface to be projected onto the TV in a practical, desktop view. By connecting an existing Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to the phone, you can get a small and useful computer in your living room.

  Connectivity with Windows is also being developed further with the Note 20 Ultra. In fact, Microsoft and Samsung are introducing these innovations to other Samsung Galaxy phones, but their introduction was made with the Note 20 series. After you open the Connect to Windows option in the Quick Settings menu of Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, you can project the notifications and messages on the computer screen by making the necessary settings from Your Phone application on your PC and giving the necessary permissions on the phone. Moreover, you can now open applications that are installed and supported on the Note 20 Ultra on the computer screen, in small windows. This works in a kind of screen mirroring way, while the phone interface used to be mirrored, now things have been made more practical by mirroring only in the form of an application interface. Samsung and Microsoft will also offer the opportunity to open multiple application windows at the same time in the coming months. In the meantime, you can make phone calls with your phone via PC. In short, thanks to this application, it is possible to use your phone on a computer without touching your Note 20 Ultra.
  
Apart from such notable points on the software side, we see various Samsung, Google, and Microsoft applications installed. On the Samsung Daily panel on the far left of the main screen, there is a stream that includes recommended content from multimedia services such as Spotify and Netflix. You can also use Google's Duo service for video calls. Duo connection is integrated directly into the user interface. In the quick settings panel, DeX, SmartView, Always-on Display, etc. There are controls specific to the Note 20 Ultra that allow you to quickly turn on and off various functions.
 
 Samsung has equipped the Note 20 Ultra with special Apps for more privacy. At the beginning of these are Samsung's security services called Knox. Secure Folder is one of those offered by Knox and allows you to store your files, photos, videos in a secure folder for fingerprint access. Knox also helps you store the usernames and passwords you enter on websites. While using the Note 20 Ultra, we recommend that you sign in with a Google Account as well as create a Samsung account or sign in with this account, if available. In this case, you will be able to use some of the services offered by Samsung more easily.
 
Instead,  Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra runs on Android 10 with Samsung famous UI 2.1 user interface. Earlier this year, Samsung began offering the One UI 2 user interface on last year's S10 and Note 10 series models. However, with the S20, it also brought some innovations on the software side. For example, among Samsung Galaxy phones AppleQuick Share is one of them, which enables sharing photos, videos, or documents similar to AirDrop. 

On the other hand, the Samsung Daily interface, which replaces Bixby Home, looks more useful with recommendations from multimedia services such as Netflix and Spotify. Additionally, you can use Google Duo instead of Samsung's video calling app. If you choose Duo, you can easily make video calls with more people. However, the person you call must also be a Duo user.

As we have always said in previous Samsung phone reviews, the One UI user interface, with its large icons and other controls, allows us to use large screen phones more comfortably. We see the benefit of One UI on the S20 Ultra, which has a fairly large screen. You can access your favorite applications by dragging the drawer on the side of the phone towards the center. You can even open two apps on the same screen by dragging and dropping any of them in the middle of the screen, or use the app in a floating window.

Apart from that, many applications that we are used to seeing on Samsung's Galaxy phones come preinstalled. In addition to Google's popular applications such as Gmail, Maps, YouTube, there are also applications such as Microsoft's Office Mobile, LinkedIn, OneDrive. As we mentioned in the previous section, you can install DeX software on your computer, connect the S20 Ultra to the computer, and view the phone's user interface on the big screen, as if using a computer, with the view of the desktop. In this way, you can open websites in desktop view. Or you can better view your photos or videos. DeX also provides practicality in working with Office documents. Besides, after activating the Connect to Windows control in Quick Settings, you can connect to the S20 Ultra with the Your Phone app on your PC. Among the functions offered are seeing the notifications and messages sent to the phone on the computer screen, accessing the user interface of the phone from the computer, and answering the incoming calls from the computer. In other words, you can make better use of the high processing power of the S20 Ultra with your computer and achieve an uninterrupted working environment.

Storage, Price, and, Available Colors

 
  Samsung Galaxy  Note 20 Ultra price depends on the selected variant. the basic variant of Samsung Note 20 Ultra with 12GB RAM and 128GB variant, we have no guess how much it might cost. The variant with 12GB RAM and 256GB variant, and 12GB RAM and 512GB. It has an SD card up to 512GB. While it goes with 2 SIM cards, one is physical and the other is eSIM.

S20 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra which one is the king?

  Security and Ports

 
  On the security side, we see that the in-screen fingerprint reader is the leading role. With every Samsung phone, this unit is getting better performance. In Note 20 Ultra, this unit works very fast and with high accuracy. By the way, you have to press your finger lightly on the screen for it to work well, let's not go without specifying this. This has been our primary authentication method throughout our entire time using an Android phone. There is also facial recognition, but the security level is lower. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra also supports the classical unlocking methods such as pattern and passcode.

In contrast, The Galaxy S20 Ultra has a fingerprint reader. Samsung is making this unit better and better. During the time we used the S20 Ultra, we preferred the fingerprint reader as the authentication method. And we did not have any trouble with this. Those who wish can also benefit from facial recognition using the front camera.

  As of ports, the Note 20 Ultra supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC. It also supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling. It comes with USB-C. It has now become the rule in high-end Samsung phones; There is no 3.5mm headphone jack. You have to handle it with the USB-C connector AKG headphones out of the box or with the 3.5mm to USB-C adapters that you can buy from the market. Or, you may want to consider purchasing a wireless headset. The USB-C port is used for charging and computer connection as well as audio output. It has a speaker to the left and a microphone to the right.

Or rather, the device supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC. It also supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling. It comes with USB-C.

  Battery and Charging

 
 Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comprises a powerful Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4500mAh. At this point, there is a small increase compared to last year's Note 10 Plus model. It has more capacity than the Huawei's latest flagship the P40 Pro Plus (4200) and iPhone Pro Max (3969). While Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra provides an even more powerful Li-Polymer 5000mAh battery. Both phones also offer fast charging.

 Considering the strengthened processor and increasing screen features, it offers a battery performance that can easily take a day off in normal intensity use. The battery of the phone, which we take from the battery fully in the morning and use it frequently in a normal smartphone, usually decreases to 30 percent towards the evening hours. If you turn on the battery saver mode and control the usage a little more, it may be possible to achieve an operating life of up to two days on a single charge.
  
With the 25W charger adapter included in the box, it is possible to charge the phone's battery up to 50 percent in half an hour. The battery reaches full charge in one to one and a half hours. Wireless charging support is also available and it is possible to achieve a faster wireless charging performance than normal with a supporting accessory. Wireless PowerShare, ie reverse wireless charging, is also available. Especially if you buy an accessory such as Galaxy Buds Live or Galaxy Watch 3 with the Note 20 Ultra, you have the opportunity to wirelessly charge these devices with the Note 20 Ultra. 

The availability of wireless charging increases practicality rather than shortening the charging times, which has become one of the indispensable features in a flagship phone.
 
 On the other side of the coin, The screen and processor of the phone are high-profile, the battery consumption is higher. Still, it delivers a battery performance in line with that of the S20 Plus. With normal intensity use, there is a battery life that can easily take off one day and even hangs on the second day. With the 45W fast charging adapter included in the box, it is possible to reach a full capacity that allows the phone to be used for a few hours in a short time. Wireless charging is also available and accessories with 15W power output are supported. By the way, reverse wireless charging, which we see in high-end Samsung phones, is among the features of the Galaxy S20 Ultra, as Samsung calls it. With the help of this feature, Qi wireless charging supported smartphones,

 Camera

 
   Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a Triple-camera on the rear as clarified: 12Mp ( utrawide with f\2.2),108MP( wide with f\1.8 it has OIS, and Laser AF),  and12MP( macro with f\3.0). Next to this trio, lined up vertically, there is a laser autofocus sensor and LED flash. The Note 20 Ultra has a single front-facing camera 10MP with f\2.0.

 In the contrast,  Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has Quad rear cameras, 12MP( utrawide with f\2.2), 108MP ( wide with f\1.8), 48MP ( telephoto with f\3.5), and Depth Vision for isolation. On the front, you see a 40MP camera with f\2.2.

 By day, the results are excellent, but not yet perfect. The sharpness is present, the exposure is correct and the colors are well represented. However, light image processing smooths the image and strengthens contrast.

Whereas, The main module of the Galaxy S20 Ultra offers to capture photos in 108 or 12MP. Let's start with the 108-megapixel photo performance. Without too much surprise, the results turn out to be excellent in full light. The Galaxy S20 Ultra even outperforms the already remarkable Mi Note 10 in the year. And for once, let's note that Samsung delivers natural images. The scene is extremely detailed, even on the outskirts.

At night, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra also delivers very good results. The whole is perfectly readable and detailed. Still, the image processing slightly smooths the image.

Reversing it, the Galaxy S20 Ultra produces shots that are certainly noisy, but natural. The colorimetry remains correct and the treatment discreet.

Finally, the main module of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra does have a night mode. This one is rather discreet. The greatly extended exposure time allows Samsung to reduce image processing, for a slightly more realistic rendering.

Having said that, The Galaxy S20 Ultra has a night mode. Which is content, at the cost of an exposure of several seconds, to further accentuate the cliché. This treatment results in chromatic aberrations here and there. Enough to interfere with readability and spoil the whole.
The ultra-wide-angle module of this Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is good without shining. By day, the pictures are readable but overexposed and slightly blurry.

On the flip side, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra offers pretty good results during the day. The scene is correctly exposed and the processing is controlled. The dive is however limited.

At night, the image processing smooths the whole and drowns out the colors at the same time as the sharpness. We are a long way from the excellent performance of the Huawei P40 Pro Plus.
On different choices, the S20 Ultra, the result is much worse. The smoothing takes over and the colors are erased on a shot that has the merit of remaining legible. Remember, however, that few smartphones shine in this exercise.

By day, the 5x telephoto module of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is relevant. It offers a readable, detailed, and convincing rendering. The image processing is there, but the whole remains convincing, especially for such a module.

Reversing it, The periscope telephoto lens of the Galaxy delivers excellent daytime results. Despite exaggerated colors and limited sharpness, the Galaxy S20 Ultra manages to achieve perfectly readable 4x photos. And that's already a lot. It is also interesting to note that the smartphone here performs pixel binning and captures 12 MP shots.

At night, however, this module collapses. Electronic noise is increased, while readability is reduced. Little chance of having a photo usable in these conditions.

That said, the periscope telephoto suffers from regrettable chromatic aberrations at night. But as for the ultra-wide-angle module, few smartphones can get by in this exercise.

At the front, Samsung has integrated a module equipped with a 10 Mpx sensor and a lens opening at f / 2.2 to act as a selfie machine. It turns out to be very well made. The sharpness is there, the management of the backlight is suitable and the whole is satisfactory. 
Contrastingly, the S20 Ultra, by default, this module captures selfies in 10 MP using the pixel binning technique. The pictures taken are particularly smooth, especially on the faces. The result is much more realistic in 40 MP.

The portrait mode, whether done with the front or rear module, remains excellent. Even the curly hair is properly cut, and it looks quite nice.
Or rather, the Samsung S20 Ultra is rather fine, with quality clipping.

 Finally, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra can shoot in 8K. A performance that he manages to achieve without too many problems, apart from the appearance of a grain in the image
While the S20 Ultra is capable of filming in 8K like the other S20s. The result, however, is not convincing. Stability suffers, the development of galley and slowdowns are felt. We, therefore, advise you to shoot in 4K 60 fps. Under these conditions, the smartphone is much more convincing.

 Conclusion.


 Although the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra does not look much different from its predecessor in appearance, it shows that Samsung continues to progress with the features and possibilities it offers. The design of the phone has gained a more attractive appearance with higher quality materials and new colors, even by adhering to the basics. Although the camera module on the rear protrudes quite a bit, it gives the Note 20 Ultra an identity. A person looking from a distance can easily understand that it is a Note 20 Ultra thanks to this camera module. It should be noted that, despite its stylish appearance, it is quite robust. The S Pen's location may be odd, but we think you'll get used to it soon. Although the new functions added to the pen make it a little more useful, we will see in the coming days and months how much we will remember that there is a pen on the lower edge of the phone.

  Besides, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is at a level worthy of a smartphone in terms of elements such as screen, processor, battery, software. We can make the same comment on the camera side, but it would be useful for Samsung to sign software solutions that will improve the low light performance in both front and rear cameras. On the video side, the Note 20 Ultra, which follows in the footsteps of previous flagship Galaxy phones, seems to be a phone that will help even those who deal with professional-level shooting.

  For the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, a price of 1500USD is currently offered. Now the price line for flagship phones, especially those of the Note 20 Ultra level, is at this level. If you're going to sacrifice such a high amount, you shouldn't be thinking about using the Note 20 Ultra just for making phone calls or consuming content. Note 20 Ultra looks like a phone that will be extremely helpful for those who want to produce something or increase efficiency in their work. 

Conversely, The recommended selling price of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is 1500USD. It is possible to find this phone at 1300USD prices. The new price for high-end smartphones is now above 1200USD. When we look at the phones above this price level, we see that the Galaxy S20 Ultra is a remarkable product with its features.

Even though the S20 Ultra is a large screen phone, it is not very difficult to use the phone. Thanks to its curved lines and glass surface with sufficient friction, using the phone with one hand and carrying it in a pocket does not cause much trouble. It also includes many features such as water resistance that we look for in a high-end smartphone. The Dynamic AMOLED screen also offers a high visual experience when watching videos or playing games with its features such as high resolution, deep blacks, vivid colors, and a 120Hz refresh rate. The stereo sound system completes the high experience offered by the screen on the multimedia and gaming side. While the Exynos 990 processor offers the performance we expect from a flagship phone, there is a high amount of RAM and sufficient storage space. With One UI 2, which comes with Android 10 and above, a comfortable and practical use is offered for users. There are tools to increase productivity for Windows PC owners. By the way, not only Windows but also Mac users can benefit from DeX.

On the camera side, we see that the Galaxy S20 Ultra offers a performance above average. You can take high quality, pleasing photos, and videos. Although features such as 100x zoom and 8K video recording seem more like an advertisement element, the Galaxy S20 Ultra with its four rear cameras and high-resolution selfie camera shows a high camera performance. The S20 Ultra is a vehicle that can work comfortably and adequately on special days.

If your budget is suitable for exceeding 10 thousand TL, you can add the S20 Ultra to your evaluation list. We expect Samsung to release the Note 20 series soon, but this will not compromise the S20 Ultra's timeliness and usefulness. We expect the two phones to be at roughly the same level in terms of performance and many other factors. By the way, if you have a Samsung branded TV or appliances in your home, the S20 Ultra will do well with your devices. What do you think? Do you recommend these phones? Share your knowledge with us.
