    Am lucky to have just picked up this phone at a discounted price of $970 and this review really helped in my decision making. Still a bit pricey but is definitely the upgrade I need from my Note 7 Fan Edition.

    Yeah I can't imagine what else they could add really. I bought the S10+ second hand for 'just' £330 so swapped it for my 200D/SL2 Canon. As it had plenty of lenses plus the heart rate monitor/Oxygen monitor. Other than that, I just want a phone that willnot look or perform out of date for a long time really. And good battery. Everything else has to be good though not annoying. What else is there really? AI software? Oh yeah the wireless charging that's good!

    I live in the u.k and managed to buy the snapdragon version already imported so no duties or tax to pay and it was the same price as the exynos 990 unit. £879.99. I would have liked the bronze ultra but the only ones were mystic black. I also purchased the official samsung rugged case in silver which looks cool. I might actually start using the camera more since its a bit of a beast and also the s-pen where as you mentioned the latency is really low in single digits in fact compared to 23ms for the standard note 20. It's quite something carrying a slab of premium tech in your pocket and when you whip it out it always draws attention, it looks like the black monolith from the film 2001 a space odyssey ?? and that huge camera bump I think give the phone a bit of a macho look too, it's not to everyone's taste but I love it. Nice video by the way.

    Fact:

    "I have the T-Mobile (USA) Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset, since August 19, and for 2 weeks I was kinda sad for the battery life, BUT I noticed today (October 1), that it has much longer charge than before, even I have the same apps & usage.
    It shows that it LEARNS from the way you use it and it does everything to prioritize what it needs to be use".

    And we have 2 Note 20 Ultra in the house, mine (Mystic Black) and my wife (Mystic Brown), and we noticed BETTER battery life, especially AFTER 2 big software updates.

    So, MY own real experience is better than MOST reviewers, as I have it since August 19, 2020.

    We really LOVE IT!

    Have a great day to y'all…
