Galaxy Note20 Ultra (Exynos) – Battery Performance and Drain Test (120Hz Adaptive)

by birtanpublished on November 4, 2020

so guys you've got the note 20 ultra 5g and if you see i've charged it to 100 you can see that on the top right corner what we'll do is go ahead and play pubg for about an hour and the clock over here the timer here is going to keep track of that time i'm obviously playing under some constraints i'm going to list them over here and we'll keep that the same throughout the video so let's go ahead and play pubg and let's also start the timer all right so i'm just gonna start let's turn these off and i'm gonna start

Playing and the timer is still running so let's come back after about an hour all right so it's almost 59 minutes and 27 seconds so i'm just gonna go ahead and turn this off so one hour of playing pubg has depleted about 15 percent of your battery and now let's go ahead and turn on asphalt 9 and let's play this for about 30 minutes and see what happens so the timer is still running it's it's at 1r now so we'll come back at 1r30. all right so

Uh let's just pause this over here as you can see on the clock we've got 1r30 which means i've played 30 minutes of asphalt 9. so let's go out and have a look at the battery levels 10 battery has been lost while i was playing asphalt 9 for about 30 minutes now that's a little more than what i saw with pubg and i did feel that the phone also got a little hotter when compared to playing pubg for an r probably asphalt 9 takes more resources and it's a more

You know dynamic game but anyway let's move on and now we're going to watch netflix for about nr so i'm just going to play a movie and i'm just going to leave it over there so let's come back at around 2 30 and i'm just going to leave this over here it's been about an hour that i've been watching netflix i kept changing uh between shows and movies so it's been on and now if you see i've got about 67 battery left so that means that we lost about eight percent

Over one hour of netflix use that's actually pretty good um now let's go ahead and play a youtube video all right so now it's two hours and 33 minutes so we'll watch a youtube video for about an hour and i'm gonna make sure that you know the video is long enough so all right so it's been about an hour that i've been watching a video on youtube and so it's at 58 which means i've just lost nine percent battery of uh you know after watching one r of youtube anyway let's go ahead and listen

To some music now and we are at three hours and 36 right now so let's come around four hours and 36 and then we'll take it from there all right so it's been about an hour that i've been listening to music do note that my screen was on while i was also using the phone for you know other things i was browsing the internet so it wasn't only playing music so that's something you need to be aware of so you'll see that the battery has dropped

To 40 percent that's quite a bit of a drop after 1r because as i said the screen was on throughout and the music it was actually being played at about 80 to 85 volume which is actually quite a lot so uh that's youtube music that we were playing for an hour now let's go ahead and make a phone call and we'll talk on this phone for about let's say 20 minutes all right so i'm getting a phone call and i'm just gonna attend to it

And we're gonna keep this on for 20 minutes and then we'll get back so it's 4 36 we'll be back at about um 4 56 or so so as you can see i just completed 20 minutes of my phone call and i've gone from about 40 to 38 so that's just two percent gone and i think that's pretty good now let's go ahead and do a video call for 20 minutes so it's about five over here and uh we'll come back at 5 30. so we've got about 30 minutes of video calling and then we'll see how further it drops from 38. all right

So i'm going to cut it short to 22 minutes of a video call so now if you see i've got 31 left which means 9 of the battery was lost while i was on that video call and now let's go ahead and shoot an 8k video for about five minutes and let's see what that does so i've recorded a little over five minutes of 8k footage and couple of things one it's really hot this time uh 8k takes a lot of processing power so it makes sense for the phone to become

That hot and just five minutes of 8k recording has taken five percent of that battery anyway let's change the video resolution to 4k at 30 fps now and we're gonna go ahead and shoot for another five minutes and let's see how further down it goes from 25 so just completed five minutes of 4k video recording and let's go ahead and check the battery levels so we're at 22 which means five minutes of 4k footage took three percent of the battery life and now let's go ahead and shoot at

1080p at 30fps all right so that's about five minutes of 1080p video recording so let's go ahead and stop that and check out the battery life so we're at about 19 which means five minutes of 1080p video recording also took about three percent of battery life so here are the final results and as you can see i kept a pretty good mix of the kind of activities i chose looking at what generally people like to do uh so you know there was one and a half hours of gaming three hours of pure entertainment you

Know in terms of watching videos and listening to music voice call video call and a bit of video recording just to give you some idea in terms of consumption and yes i've not talked about regular camera use or let's say whatsapp user browsing instagram and facebook or browsing the web on chrome uh but this should give you a fair idea again and you should be able to correlate given the context here and it's also important to note that i've recorded a screen on time of about 5 hours and 44 minutes while i've been doing all these

Tests and the note 20 ultra still has 19 battery left so what does that mean this means that after doing everything i just showed you you'll still be left with 19 of battery life which you can then use to watch more games or play more videos or just talk more on the phone or just let your phone sit idle which is what you'll actually end up doing now 19 can roughly translate to about 7 hours to 15 hours of just sitting idle depending on how many apps you've got

Installed on your phone so let's say you get about 12 hours of standby time and then you add 5 hours and 40 minutes of screen on time you're looking at about 17 to 18 hours of total phone usage through the day which i think is pretty impressive the remaining time you'll probably be sleeping and you can charge your phone again up to 100 i also personally feel that the note 20 ultra's battery performance is better than what i saw in the s20 ultra and a part of the reason is that unlike

The s20 the note 20 ultra does not have its refresh rate locked at 120 hertz it's variable it's adaptive so depending on when it's required it'll clock all the way to 120 hertz and if not required it'll lower it down and thereby it gives it just yields more battery life in comparison to the s20 ultra so that's something that's really good and while samsung may have improved the performance of the exynos 990 as compared to the s20 ultra the snapdragon may still perform better overall from a battery perspective

Anyway that's it from me on the galaxy note 20 battery performance and battery drain test if you've got any questions feel free to drop them in the comments section below as always don't forget to drop a like hit the subscribe button and that bell icon i'll see you guys in the next one my
