  • I love my Note 20 Ultra. I used to use it without a case and the bump drove me crazy, but I got the Otterbox Defender Case, so I don't notice the bump anymore. I do regret getting the "Mystic Black" because its way too easy to get dirty and the worst fingerprint magnet ever

  • Ya I am still using the Note 9 when I saw the Wing from LG coming out I was like ya that would be great because LG always puts a 3.5mm jack on them. Ya still have my Note 9 I have had Samsung S500, MM-A920, S1, NOTE 2, NOTE 5, NOTE 9 and now I think its time to look at another brand but not Apple.

  • Samsung needs to listen to the customer... I love my Note 8, but upgrading from the Note 4 was tough. I lost my beloved removable battery AND the edge display has been terrible... Cracked 3 times in 2 years with a case and screen protector. With the Note 10, we lost the headphone jack... prices are up but lifespan and features are being stripped away. No thanks. I'll my note 8 until it is no longer usable.

  • Linus "That disgusting Punch out notch" Linus "iPhone is great" It nearly doesn't have a notch. Just dont look at the top part of the phone (Linus is not an apple fan ofc not)....😉 Linus ahh it's very annoying that you can't anabela 120hz with QHD iPhone we don't even have a 90hz display onca flagship phone but to compensate we introduce widgets!🧐

    Balla BarnabasBalla BarnabasIl y a 6 jours
    • As a former long time iPhone (and current iPad Pro) user let me say... getting widgets and the App Library is huge. However I can tolerate a 60Hz display on iPhone since it gets at minimum 5 years of OS updates 😉

  • **Label of tech companies** Samsung: Competitive god tier technology that i can't afford and basically owns south korea Apple: used to be awesome, now falling down to sony level and selling expensive yet worthless products, and owns millions of underaged toxic fans Sony: used to be good, pushed down to hell by samsung and apple Nokia: used to be god tier, pushed down by samsung and apple. But still is the daddy of all phones Huawei: the new cool kid in town but gets bullied by multiple countries, but also snitches data Oneplus: new kid who's really cool, and here to stay Oppo: midrange normal tier Vivo: midrange normal tier LG: used to be good, pushed down by samsung, and now rising again with phone designs no one's ever seen before Google: possibly the best software ROG: *super fast gaming phone* Motorola: Samsung's only competitor when it comes to foldable phones Lenovo: used to be into phones, now just makes laptops T-mobile: they made phones??? Duracell: made a *THICC* and *BIG* battery phone that looks like a brick Hotel: trivago. Obviously.

  • The only place on earth where it sucks to get a Note20 Ultra is here in the Philippines (and some other Southeast Asian countries where Exynos variant is the only thing that has been released) not only they didn't released a 512GB model here but the RAM size is basically inferior to Note10+. If you're in a region where they only sell Note20 Ultra (non-5G Exynos with model number SM-N985F/DS) not only you don't get larger RAM but it's not the 5G variant. Atleast here in the Philippines of you want the 5G model of the same phone you have to get it under a postpaid plan or a carrier subsidy for the next 2 years which SUCKS cuz for all I thought that they'll only have a non 5G Note20 which is not very understandable given the >US$1000 local pricing they have here. Not only is the build quality feels cheap in the hands because of the plastic ehem POLYCARBONATE build quality but it doesn't have both 5G, 12GB RAM and expandable storage which SUCKS! Don't get me wrong I LOVE SAMSUNG Galaxy phones but man their marketing is a total CRAP for 2020 especially if you live in the Philippines or other Southeast Asian countries. Honest piece of advice here... If you feel like buying a Note20 Ultra consider these things first hand... 1. Make sure you get the 5G variant of it (model number SM-N986B) 2. Make sure that it's not from carrier subsidy/phone plan unless you don't mind being in a 2-year contract. 3. You badly needed 120Hz screen and you're willing to settle on FHD+ 1080 resolution. 4. You badly needed the 9ms S-Pen latency and the air gesture gimmicks that Samsung put on it. 5. You can basically afford it cuz in the Philippines the price of the 5G variant (which basically is only available on telcos) is crazy US$1460 (₱72,990). But if none of those matters to you Save yourself some of those headaches and just get a Note10+ which basically is NO WAY a bad option and basically has had a price down all the way to the price lower than an S20 FE (which is also non-5G and Exynos variant if you live in basically everywhere except Europe and North America). #RealTalk #JustSaying #BeTechSmart not a #IdioTech

The pictures I have taken are incredibly beautiful. It's fast. Many new features. I use the pen a lot because I use it to take notes at meetings and when I meet clients. I couldn't be happier. I thought the price was appropriate. It's the top of the line. It's worth it.
