Can Samsung and Microsoft beat APPLE with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra?

by birtanpublished on November 4, 2020

Close to a year ago i talked about how samsung had finally made the right move by partnering with microsoft to bridge the gap well one of the gaps that they have between themselves and apple where apple dominates in a particular portion of owning a phone and they've done it they've finally done it they did it a year ago and now microsoft and samsung have continued that relationship which i'm super happy about to take it to the next level and this excites me it should excite you if you're an android lover or even a

Samsung lover this is going to be amazing super excited about this finally we're going to have some integration love it super excited and i'm going to tell you all about it right after this what up players welcome back and for all you new people welcome my name is travis and i do tech videos every single week and have a blast doing them if that sounds like fun to you sit back relax and enjoy the video anything i talk about will be in the

Description below but for now let's just get into the video now i've done a couple of videos on the galaxy note series of phones and i'll tell you this thing is the best thing about the galaxy note phone that really has nothing to do with the phone now if you're wondering why i'm doing a positive spin on the galaxy note after doing a couple videos people thought were critical i've already addressed this in a previous video when i talked about my next phone from

Samsung so if you haven't seen that i'll leave a link in the description an end card and everything i don't want to have to go over that again let's just say i was not being critical of samsung but samsung sheep just they don't care they they get their feelings hurt what i'm talking about is the galaxy line of phones not even just the note but even android phones finally getting some integration with windows which is of course

The largest desktop operating system in the world and really important because this is one of the things that samsung phones or android phones at large have never really had a good hold on and that's true integration now there have always been apps that allow you to kind of share files between your phone and your in your computer there's even been some things like side sync from samsung that allows you to share your screen and even kind of control your phone uh

Through a wired connection and then later through a wireless connection and it was okay but it definitely drained the battery if you weren't powered up and it had some weird kind of things that i just i was never really a super fan of i wanted to like it but it was never quite like the operating system on ios like ios is so integrated that when i'm watching something on my apple tv and a text box comes up for me to enter something my phone vibrates and asks me to type it in

It just knows that i mean i can copy something from my iphone put it down walk over to my ipad and paste it without any other steps like integration on levels of just crazy and if you've ever had one iphone and then set up another one it's painfully simple you just put them together and magic happens it's just one thing that apple's been very good at over the last several years they call it the apple ecosystem it's one of the many things

That keep people on that side of the fence however this is a big deal now last year i talked about how getting your phone onto your desktop is a great first step for an integration a samsung ecosystem which they actually said at the unpacked event they actually called the samsung ecosystem which is kind of interesting i mean they really only have laptops and a tablet they don't really have like a powerful desktop that you can buy easily i mean they probably sell a desktop but like i've never seen one not not anytime

Recently and while they do have the watches and now the phones and everything else it's just never really felt like an ecosystem like if i copy from my samsung phone can i paste it onto my tab i mean maybe i don't even know but this becomes interesting because if you use windows and a lot of people do now you're getting an integration on a level that i think is super exciting things like one note having integration directly with the notes that you write on your galaxy note that's pretty great now here's the thing

You can always sync those things through onenote or whatever you've always been able to do that but the integration here feels intentional which is a big deal last year when they first talked about integrating the samsung phones into the windows they talked about being able to get your text messages and some alerts but they've since taken it to another nice level here recently you can now take phone calls and those text messages uh wirelessly on

Your computer which is pretty dope i like that i mean that's one of the things i've always liked about iphones you can do it on your ipad or whatever you can take the call right there and text messages are much easier to type on a keyboard but now they're taking it to another level which i truly appreciate while samsung dex is amazing awesome fantastic you do have to plug it in and it isn't exactly like an experience that a lot of people are going to understand this is really cool because

This experience with your phone and your pc you can just do it all wirelessly not only can you handle your messages and phone calls like i was saying before but now you can bring up apps which is awesome i love that instagram doesn't have like a great interface on the web like it's not awesome but if you want to you can just pop up instagram from your phone onto your desktop and then pin it and then open up another app and then another like it's listen this is getting pretty exciting

And yes this is kind of like side sync that was out a couple of years ago but with microsoft invested in it is a huge deal and the fact that they're bringing things like outlook to the samsung watch listen this is the combination of two companies that can literally make a difference in the battle for integration the ability to have samsung notes automatically sync to one note especially if you work uh and you you do some writing on your galaxy note and then needed to get into office 365 that's really clutch listen

Office is everywhere microsoft office is everywhere uh if you work in a in a kind of a nine-to-five job where you're at a computer and you don't have your phone out this is a great way to kind of you know you check check your check your instagram and i love the ability to sync your reminders and to-do's to your desktop directly now if you don't use like a normal calendar app this is really dope because you can set a reminder on your phone and like me i'm always on my computer my phone may not be around and have an alert right on your desktop

Again these are small things you've been able to do with other apps but when it's intentional and integrated into the base part of the operating system more people are likely to use it because it's there they don't have to search for it in the app store let alone know it exists it just makes it something that's more powerful for everyone and this is an important point you have to even know an ability of something for your phone exists to even search for it in the app store there's people who

Don't know you can do this but if it's something that's native to the phone you're bound to trip across it now of course microsoft is pushing one drive for like all your photos and stuff but you know google photos does that just fine and they have a web web interface for your your desktop so i don't really know that that is really that important but the whole idea is something that i'm in love with the fact that microsoft and samsung are working so closely together with these integrations

To make it more powerful is a win and there are a ton of windows tablets out there you can still buy windows obviously laptops desktops all of those things getting the integration and making your phone a more powerful place in your life this is exciting for me i get excited about this because it's existed for a long time over in the mac world but it just has not existed over here in windows for very long and now it's starting to pick up fire the one thing i'm not mentioning is the

Fact that decks still exist on samsung phones now android phones alone are integrated in the same way this isn't just the samsung only thing but dex is pretty amazing it actually is the one advantage i think besides samsung pay over apple dex is basically a full up desktop if you don't want to do what i'm talking about integrating into windows you can literally just hook your phone up to a mouse and keyboard and monitor and have your own desktop set up there and that's fine but i think for people that are

Either working from home or just have a windows desktop or laptop that they use anyway this is an exciting development and this is what samsung really needs to be paying attention to the hardware and 1300 phones are not important things like this move the needle and make it more exciting to be an owner of samsung phones and i really believe that app thing being able to pull up apps and use them on your desktop is actually one of the killer features i know it's

Coming later this year so i'm super excited about that but you tell me what are you excited about this integration between microsoft and samsung what gets you excited what gets you amped tell me in the comments below i did some other videos about the galaxy note right here and of course my favorite upcoming phone right here super excited for you to watch those i'll see you again real soon peace and love
