A REVIEW ON THE SAMSUNG’SFLAGSHIP PHONE: THE S20 ULTRA
The Samsung S20 ultra is the highest and most huge, not to mention expensive flagship phone ever and there’s a lot of words, they would have chosen to use here, they could have gone plus, or max or they could have gone pro, but they went ultra.
So the question is: how can you possibly justify a new phone that’s expensive? Samsung’s answer is by throwing all the hard Ram, all the specs, every single big number they can possibly think of, they’re going into this phone, it looks on paper like a great idea, how could a phone with a snap dragon E65, 16G of RAM, 52 GS of UPS 3.0 a 108 mega pixels, 10x zoom, 8k, 5000mah, 1020Hz, 144p, 5G.
How could this this phone not be anything but the best?
Let’s start with the design through, because I think it’s actually the least ultra thing about This phone, and it’s pretty simple: it’s a massive phone, glass sandwich with a gigantic recognizable double camera bump, expandable storage at the top, speaker at the bottom, R headphone Jack, you know in one hand it kinds of blend in with the smart phones of today especially in Samsung’s line up, but on the other hand, there’s no mistake in it.
I actually remembered when smartphones display were getting bigger and bigger and they first crossed over 5 inches, like average and then they sort of even out at 5.3 and people thought it was kind of crazy and then Samsung came out with the galaxy mega. It was really a phone that came out with the name and had a 6.3 inch mega display. Which is hilarious because no one else would try that, but this phone was the size of a tablet with the foreign factor of a phone, it really was the mega phone,
yet here we are, today with the galaxy S10 ultra, bigger inch display but for me it still fits in my pocket and it’s useable for me, but it might not be for everyone clearly, giant phones aren’t for everyone but I got to say for an ultra phone the colour options of glossy black, glossy gray aren’t that underwhelming of course,
one thing you do get from a huge phone is a huge display, just to give you the numbers: 6.9 inch diagonal, 120Hz, 1440. I don’t know if you’ve heard of this before but once again Samsung has made the best display in any smartphone, best brightness, colours contrast, best of viewing angles in any smartphone display, I’ve ever seen. I’m starting to feel like its display made this is the highest I’ve ever given, you’ll know when you see it.
And it’s but just the high and spec and Hugh numbers, they’re also fastened out the edges of the display so that it doesn’t so I’ll over the sides anymore, and I appreciate that from a usability perspective and I hope they keep that trend up for the rest of their line up, and if I have any grips that the ultra sonic finger pribt reader underneath the scream is basically the same as last year, there’s no substantial improvement and its still a decently fast and responsive one, and I’ve you learn where it is with muscle memory, it becomes kind of quick but I was hoping this would get bigger and faster from generation to generation and that hasn’t happened yet.
Buy it’s worth noting that you don’t get all the big numbers straight off the box, the phone is actually 1080p, 60Hz out the box, pretty basic and you can either notch it IP to a 1020HZ or a 144p but not both at the same time personall6 I’m picking a 120Hz every single time.
I was waiting and asking for the higher refresh rate from Samsung and we saw and finally got it, it’s great but the difference between 60hz and a 100Hz I’m like 90% of what you’re doing on your phone which is scrolling us fantastic and then the display also have a 2020Hz touch sensor refresh rate, so no matter what resolution you’re in, it keeps feeling snappy and responsive as expected which is just what we’ve seen in this gaming phones that came before it.
Now do I wish to let us use this phone a5 a 1020Hz and a 144p resolution at the same time, yes I would allow it right now that’s disabled but I really thought it would be a snap dragon E65, limitation but it turns out it’s not, they just turn to enable it because they thought it wouldn’t crush the battery, but u say if you’we saying 14,000 bucks for this phone, then you know what your getting yourself into, you can still put it at 60Hz, 1086p out the box.
But let us enable it if we really want to enable that with a software update and maybe a little disclaimer, hey if you turn this both OK, it will crush your battery but you paid for the phone you get to turn it on.
Now let’s talk about that battery, 500mah or the S20 ultra and this is one of those specs that usually translate, pretty well from paper to real life, the bigger the battery the better and this one’s getting 2 bug thumbs up from me and we know 500mah is huge but I’m just a little bit worried about how well it would go powering a giant bright 6.9inch or 20Hz display turns out it’s perfectly fine, I’ve being getting consistently 6+ hours of screen onset of time everyday at the end of the week, gaming navigation, while driving and I’ve never killed it in a single day, so I don’t worry about it anymore.
To be honest I was thinking that I was going to have a few much battery that saves, me but I don’t face to, this is an all day phone that’s up to 20hz which is dope.
alright let’s just face it, the big numbers that you most curious about and how will they translate, would at the back of the phone and that’s the cameras, so less than 108 megapixel, 8k video and it’s printed at the back of the phone the 100x space zoom but as we’ve learnt by now that numbers on the spec sheet for cameras don’t always translate super well to real world performance, I’ve seen about a million 64 pixel camera that are worse than the 12 mega pixel camera.
In the pixel on the iPhone, so for me seeing how hard, Samsung was leaning into this camera upgrade fit the S20 ultra my real question at the buying of this was, hey can Samsung actually make the best camera in any smartphone. I gave a lot of thoughts about this camera, because it’s better in some ways than the previous cameras but worst in other ways actually, because it still falls solidly in 3rd place for me, I still prefer photos from the pixel and the iPhone more often than images com8ng from Samsung.
But that doesn’t mean the numbers means nothing, by default this main camera is doing benign that kicks out a 12 megapixel photo and it’s the sharpest mist detailed 12 megapixel of the phone that I love.
It’s one of those things that I love about it’s they’re classic Samsung bright and colourful, usually bring out shadows and smoothing out surfaces the whole thing hasn’t changed, there also the ultra wired camera which is the softest of the 3 camera but I’m still glad it’s there it’s giving us that first person and the perspective and it also has Samsung much improved night mode there.
So that’s it for this review.
