Screen: The Samsung Galaxy S20 is comes with 6.9-inch Infinity-O AMOLED screen is the sharpest we’ve seen, coming in at a whopping 3200 x 1440 resolution (WQHD+) given the model’s slim bezels and the narrowest punch-hole we have ever seen. Plus is its maximum refresh rate has been bumped up to 120Hz (though only if you bump the resolution down to FHD+) and touch sensor improved to 240Hz. Galaxy S20 ultra retains an in-screen fingerprint sensor, leaving the phone’s back unblemished.
Battery life: The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has a massive 5,000mAh battery, which should help with the drains from the 120Hz and 5G connectivity, along with whatever Wireless Power Sharing and mundane binging or gaming you’re doing. Battery life should last you a day or more, though we still haven’t hit the two-day battery life threshold yet.
Camera: The Galaxy S20 Ultra massive 108MP main shooter allows you to crop into photos after the fact without as much distortion. However, the appeal is limited. Serious creatives with time on their hands may get use out of the feature more than most people. While there is a 16MP ultra-wide lens roughly akin to that from last years phone, it’s the zoom capabilities that take the cake. The rear camera 100x ‘Space Zoom’ is mostly for showing off, as photos at that zoom are muddied – but scan it back out and it will blow other phones out of the water, especially since the competition typically maxes the out at 10x.
