The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G is extremely expensive but offers the best of Samsung’s technology including a 108-megapixel camera, 5x optical zoom, and an enhanced S-Pen stylus. You get a huge 6.9-inch QHD+ AMOLED screen that can run at 120Hz (but not at the same time as the QHD+ resolution). Build quality is very good but the huge camera bump is a bit inconvenient. The Exynos 990 processor is very good, but not as powerful as the Snapdragon 865+ that powers international versions of this phone. You get plenty of RAM and storage. There’s a 108-megapixel primary camera as well as dedicated wide-angle and optical zoom cameras. Photo quality is excellent at all times of day, and Night Mode delivers some spectacular results. Battery life is also quite good. This is a luxury phone for those who want the best of everything.

Samsung’s latest super-premium smartphone is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, with advanced features, a great-looking screen, and special features for the S Pen stylus which comes included in the phone, that give you added versatile ways to use your device.
Sure it’s expensive, and pretty huge, and doesn’t actually have all the bells and whistles of the Galaxy S20 Ultra. But those weaknesses are made up for with plenty of advantages.
Screen: The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has one of the best display’s on any smartphone, with a 120Hz refresh rate (at FullHD+ resolution) and the option of QHD+ resolution (at a 60Hz refresh rate) – plus at 6.9 inches there’s plenty of space for movies, games and productivity apps.
Camera: The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra camera is… impressive. With 0.5x ultrawide, 1x regular, 5x optical, and 50x digital zoom levels, you can get closer to subjects and still get stunning shots.
Battery life: If the Note 20 Ultra has a slight weak point, it’s the battery. In most of the world (basically outside North America) the handset comes with Samsung’s Exynos 990 chipset which isn’t quite as power-efficient – if you push the handset, you’ll need to recharge before the day is out.
Mini verdict: This is a real top-end phone with top specs in every sector, so if your budget (and hand) can stretch for it, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the power and productivity user’s phone of choice.
