    Pinker/redder on the Note back camera: The iPhone was more accurate. Pinker/redder on the iPhone front camera: The iPhone was more accurate. Uh……….what? One of these has to not be true.


    . I am Bangladeshi. I wanted to do photography and videography but I don't have any money. I am a poor person. I can't afford to buy a camera. Give me a camera as a gift.

    Note is trash. iPhone 11 Pro Max is last years iPhone and it still shoots better images and video. 8k is useless when it automatically crops the image. Gimmicks don’t sell me. Performance does and the iPhone is still a photographers mobile camera.

    For me, Samsung's rear camera is better but Apple's front camera is always the best. You can really see the distinction between the photo through its overall quality.

    Just got my note 20 ultra 512gb and I've fallen so in love with this phone. Hands down the best note and best phone by far

    The Note 20 Ultra really surprised me… it looks better than the camera I thought was the best in the market a few months ago! Excellent, Samsung!

    I just switched from the 11 Pro Max to the Note 20 Ultra after having been an iPhone user for 6 years. While I love the Note 20 Ultra, I do miss the camera and image processing from the iPhone. I just feel the samsung image is overexposed and I prefer the blue hues of the iPhone over the blues on the samsung. I find that shooting photos in night mode during the day helps with the overexposure on the Samsung.
