Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra: Why is this Lineup Dominant?
As per the reports, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is more dominant than Note 20 in many ways. Let’s begin with its performance.
When it comes to the fastest android that ever existed, then it’s Note 20 Ultra. And besides that, it’s solely dependent on its optimized performance driven by unique configurations. For instance, the device is one of a kind when it comes to performance, and it’s only because of the processor. The Snapdragon 865 contains a chipset that can run at 3.1 GHz providing a clock speed 105 faster. Also, compared to Galaxy 20, the GPU is 10% faster than that of Galaxy 20.
On the other hand, the performance is also tuned due to 12GB RAM space with both memories of 128GB to 512GB. That being said, it also provides an extra SD slot with which you can expand the memory up to 1TB. This option is not available in Note 20.
When it comes to Display, Galaxy Note 20 is again dominant upon comparison with Note 20. This is because the HD display of 6.9 inches is appealing, bigger, and bold. Unlike Note 20, or any other series for that matter, Note 20 Ultra has a refresh rate of 120Hz. This is an advantage to the device itself because, with such a great refresh rate, the screen can optimize itself and adjust based on the content in it.
Doing so, can also save battery life and extend its performance. Meanwhile, gaming is smooth and so is the scrolling down, through the interface. And, the color tone combination made of 121.5% of sRGB mode, makes everything more vivid even at Natural Mode.
According to Tech-Savvy Experts!
Based on reports, David Imel, a tech journalist from Android Authority reviewed the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra series. According to him, the device is cogent and powerful which reflects on its flexibility upon handling anything. He also mentions that the design and structure of the device are unique along with the S-Pen which can do a lot more than you think.
However, David mentions that despite the camera setup being great, it’s not class-leading. As far as his concerns are tied, he believes Pixel 4 is better. Meanwhile, his other comments suggest that Dex is satisfying because you can connect the device to any monitor or TV wirelessly.
But, David also focused his point on a minor drawback which may be unnoticeable to many- and that is heating. He mentions that the device can get slightly heated when the camera is in use. However, the heat is moderately light but is surely a point worth considering.
Apart from that, the 3 powerful Android updates are expected along with a great deal of battery life. However, he suggests that he expected more for the price it’s being sold at. This point is also worth considering because the battery life provides less than 5000 mAh of S10 but also more than 4,300 mAh of Galaxy Note 10.
However, David shows signs of disappointment after briefing analyzing Note 20. The plastic design and weak camera functions are not as great as Ultra 20. He also mentions, for the price, Ultra 20 may be expensive but also offers more than what Note 20 does.
