So the s20 s20 ultra has 20-plus are all official Samsung released it today and I got to tell you something I was actually a little bit surprised by one aspect of this entire press conference I thought it was actually kind of surprising not the s20 themselves or the s20 ultra or anything like that but Samsung did something that I I had to applaud them for I had to go you know what Samsung you did it good job baby good job but you might want to thank Apple for it I'll tell you what it is right after this what 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 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 there's a lot of things I'm actually not gonna talk about as far as his phone's concerned there are some hands-on videos out there you should go watch those in addition to that I'm actually gonna talk a lot about these on my podcast gadget cast with my friend Greg's from Greg's gadgets we're on all the audio things but also we have a YouTube channel that we livestream those

Reactions and video podcasts too I'll keep a link in the description below and I'll put a link in the end of the video check us out and subscribe because we're gonna talk in depth about this entire s20 s20 ultra thing now we already knew just about everything there was to know about the S 20 and s 20 ultra so there's not a lot really to kind of be surprised about I mean some of the software is interesting because unlike most of the things about these phones that doesn't leak too often but even this year we kind of knew some stuff about the software which we don't normally know

Every year seems to me by next year we're literally not gonna need to have one of these press conferences we just know everything listen I'm gonna tell you about all the cool things about this phone but the reality is this they did one thing that they took from Apple that made much more impact to me than anything else about the s 20 RS 20 ultras I'll tell you about that near the end of this video but I'm gonna tell you some of the things that stood out in the press conference that I'll talk about right now that I thought are either interesting or not as interesting as

They made it to seem now one of the first things they did is dropped a bomb that they were streaming the entire conference on an s2000 are a bunch of s 20s now this was a great mic drop moment and it really puts their money where their mouth is I loved this moment although I'll be honest I wasn't completely surprised when I started watching the stream I was like why doesn't this look as crisp and as clear as it normally does it's because it was shot on a smartphone but take nothing away that was really cool and it's something Apple hasn't done as a matter

Of fact last year Apple talked about how their iPhone 11 was the best smartphone camera ever they literally could have streamed that on the S 11 on their iPhone 11 and they didn't do it Samsung said you know what the S 20 is everything the cameras amazing and here's the proof so I respect that Samsung I respect that speaking of video of course this thing can shoot an 8k and they kind of combined the 8k argument with 5g so here's two things that you'll never use this year 8k and 5g there's reasons for this how many of you out there have an 8k TV very few of you that

Guy over there does because he lives in his basement and that that person over there they do but most of you don't and you're not gonna shoot an 8k depending on which storage size you get that's gonna eat up all your memory and while some of you can say well it's good for future proofing how many videos are you watching years later when you're gonna actually watch it on an 8k television how many videos you're gonna shoot this year that you're gonna need to watch an 8k a couple years from now probably none and it's not to say that they shouldn't push it forward and have a que video but

I mean you know it's just not something that we're gonna see a lot of use out of this year and 5g is a whole nother problem well it's nice that they baselined all of the phones that have 5g and I do appreciate that the reality is most people are not going to be able to use it because some carriers are gonna charge you more which most people don't want to pay for and when they find out how unreliable a connection to 5g is that's not a selling point anymore it's gonna take a while at least in America before 5g is any kind of consistent

Connection with your phones as a matter of fact my friend Michael Fisher has done several videos on 5g testing it out in real-world scenarios I'm gonna link to his video in the description below and maybe in a card because you need to watch this if you think 5g is as easy as just buying a 5g phone and everything's faster you are in for a major wake-up call what thing they did that I love is the fact that they announced two things two products the galaxy buds and the Z flip that will be released later this week I love that you know back in the day we

Used to have to wait weeks and weeks for a phone to be announced and then but if you really like the flip or you like the buds you can have them this week I want to see that happen more with smart phones let's release everything in the same week while we're all hyped up about it the more time you give someone to kind of cool off the less likely they are to buy it and not everyone is pre-ordering sure a lot of the geeks they're on YouTube right now watching these videos are pre-ordering them but a vast majority people are not get it hot and

Heavy let's get it out this week and we did hear about the 120 Hertz and I love the way they marketed this they were real smart about this they talked about how it's for gamers because most people while they will like it and I listen I love high refresh rate screens most people don't care but the people who do are the tech heads and the gamers gamers especially mobile gaming at a high refresh rate is top of the chart of the things that they want on a smartphone so it was actually really smart to kind of lean into that there and not just say in general hey 120 yards screen you're

Gonna love the difference they really said hey gamers especially you you're gonna love this phone I think that was really smart they talked a lot about picture quality on the camera and we know that's gonna be the big thing I can't wait for these final reviews to come out of these units especially people who do really good jobs with camera reviews here's the thing though let's settle down on the 100 times zoom because when you zoom in a hundred times on something it looks like trash let's just be honest it looked trash and one thing people aren't

Paying attention to is when you do that you pretty much have to have it on a tripod because any movement you make is going to be a large movement at a hundred X you are not taking a hundred extra of anything unless you're super mr. Mick creep Orton with your tripod outside of someone's apartment please don't do that having said that some of the zooms below 30x are actually gonna be pretty useful so if you're into taking zoom pictures of things whether it be at sporting events or something like that you will get better picture quality back to

Camera quality options I love that they did this called single take it's a new feature where basically the camera takes multiple pictures at one time and then you can select which version of the picture you want this almost like a rapid take of pictures except for it does it with different lenses focal links and that sort of thing this is gonna capture images when you may have messed it up with maybe just a different camera angle and maybe save a picture in a moment that you can't get back now of course on the ultra you have the 100 8 megapixel

Camera will that look any better they're using binning for like a compress 9 to 1 ratio picture I listen at the end of the day we won't know if the actual image quality and picture quality of the s20 ultra is worth the extra money over tough the overwhelmingly expensive s 20 or s 20 plus I mean we're gonna have to wait for full reviews for that my name dick my thoughts are it's probably not worth the extra couple hundred bucks but only time will tell and while we don't have to wait too long March 6th is kind of a long time away we knew that was going to be the date and the pricing is

Exactly like John Prosser said so I made a video about this go ahead and watch it I mean I've talked about the pricing it's I mean that's only part of the problem but the thing that Samsung did the one thing that I got to say I'm absolutely impressed by that they took from Apple as they lowered the prices of the s10 and put them on the stage with and next to the s20 and the little slide there this is a big deal Apple's been doing this for years just lowering the prices on the older phones and putting them up and saying hey we have prices all across the range doesn't matter if

You want the high end or the low end we got you covered Samsung in the past has just announced new phones and pretended the other ones didn't exist and you kind of understand the concept behind it but I'm glad that Samsung is finally looking forward and saying you know what not everyone's gonna want to buy a thousand or $1200 phone some people want a value at $5.99 the s10 is an incredible deal $600 foam they're battling the budget I love it 749 for the regular s10 okay we're okay that's that's not bad it's not bad but there are some really banging phones

Around that price point now but the s10 plus the value to me just isn't really there the pricing between that and of course the ROG from Asus is almost that price and it's hard to kind of argue that between the s10 and the ROG with that are all-around specs but in general I'm pretty happy with what Samsung showed us we we kind of knew this was going to happen everything favorite they told us about we knew but Samsung finally saying look we have other phones that will fit your price range encourages me and it should encourage you as well especially when

They're coming out with much more expensive phones and they ever have before it's just it just feels a little bit better like they said okay here's an olive branch I wish they had gone deeper in the price cuts the S 10 each should be $4.99 but it's a first step in the right direction but what do you think did Samsung make the right choice here that they really take from Apple the idea of taking older phones and cutting the price and then showcasing them yeah they did I mean I just literally told you that we don't even have to talk about that I was gonna say leave a

Comment below but we already know they did that if this video helped you out in any way hit that like button hit the subscribe button hit that notification bell and if it didn't hit that like button hit the subscribe button hit that notification bell I'm here every single week having a blast hope to see you again real soon peace and love peace and love
