Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra – 167 Days Later.

by birtanpublished on November 28, 2020

Galaxy s20 ultra it's been exactly 167 days since this phone was announced and a lot has happened because we exist in an age where we get to know so much about the future smartphones it becomes impossible for a brand to escape the reality with the launch of this year's flagship phones samsung changed the name from s10 and straight to s20 not only that they introduced the ultra name to its biggest flagship the pressure on this phone to carry the legendary s lineup was almost too much and on top of that samsung printed things like 100x space

Zoom which initially was going to be a 10x hybrid zoom but some genius at samsung decided no let's just do the space zoom 100x they even code named this phone as hubble telescope like everything almost made us think that we can zoom into space and like see aliens chilling with elon musk the 108 megapixel marketing and most of all which is also the worst of all and that is it's 1400 price it almost sucks the soul out of your wallet now all of this put a lot of pressure on this phone to prove to us

That it is that good and even if it came close to being that good the immense pressure of marketing and pricing made sure that that doesn't happen hi my name is zoryab and this is galaxy s20 ultra 167 days later the galaxy s20 ultra is in a very confusing position right now like we know that samsung couldn't really deliver what they really wanted to do and the proof of that is galaxy note 20 ultra the 100x zoom is gone samsung is bringing a brand new

50x zoom on the note 20 ultra there's also a brand new autofocus assist sensor to fix the autofocusing issue like they're literally creating a better and fixed version of s20 ultra if there was really nothing wrong with the s20 ultra we should have seen the exact camera setup on the note 20 ultra which is something that happened since last two years the fact that they're doing this is a proof that they know they messed up these are the issues that samsung

Couldn't really solve by software updates are they improved yes for sure but some things need a hardware change and that just cannot be done through a software batch so what about my personal experience so the s20 ultra it's got an amazing display 1080p 120 hertz i've been fine with it i've enjoyed it i love it it's beautiful but then i use phones like apple find x2 pro 120 hertz at 1440p even the oneplus 8 pro has that i mean it almost seems like these brands

Are making a better ultra phone than samsung now do i absolutely need this 1440p 120hz feature no is 120 hertz 1080p fine yes but is it fine for a 1400 phone to not at least have the option of 1440p 120 hertz hell no is it fine for a phone to have a ultra in its name and still not have this option again hell no samsung should have given us this option and they should do this on the note20 ultra at the end of the day it should depend on the user

If we want more battery we are smart enough to use the 1080p mode we're not gonna switch to 1440p they have to do this especially when they call their phones ultra now the software experience is great actually phenomenal the one ui remains my favorite software skin on android right now i have not seen ads on my phone it's been a really smooth experience even though i'm rocking the exynos 990 variant i have not seen any battery drain issue on any of my galaxy s20 ultra it is super smooth

It lasts me just as good as other flagships now i don't play games on my phone but that's something that i know is better on the snapdragon 865 version especially with the long term gaming session one hour two hours of gaming sessions the xns 990 can have throttling issues again i'm not a smartphone gamer but i know it is unfair like i can't defend exodus 990 i won't do it is still a flagship processor nobody is denying that but knowing that something better exists for the same price

In other regions that just hurts me it doesn't inspire confidence something samsung should put an end do moving forward now let's talk about the camera so almost every software update that i got on my s20 ultra has addressed the camera issue it's been improved month by month with every software patch the s20 ultra right now takes pretty good photos the 100x zoom was never the problem the way they marketed this was the issue at 10x zoom level the images are really impressive

Great colors and lots of detail one thing that still needs to be improved with this sensor is the dynamic range here's the image comparison of s20 ultra versus a galaxy s21s which is a 190 samsung smartphone it's almost doing a better job than galaxy s20 ultra when it comes to exposing those darker areas in the image this is something that i've noticed in comparison to other flagship phones as well such as samsung's galaxy s10e and even with the iphone 11 pro max

But i will say this that overall images are good the video performance is one of the best you can find on android the autofocus it is improved but it's not entirely perfect like samsung's older flagships or the iphone 11 pro max it still feels a bit slower than the older flagships again this whole camera experience especially at 1400 feels like it should have been better samsung put all their eggs in one basket they sacrificed the design so much like you can see the galaxy note 20 ultra

As a proof they put a lot of depth and thought in designing the note 20 ultra you can see the color coordinated rings around the camera the matching colored camera gloss the stainless steel the frosted back and a lot more exciting colors like the galaxy s20 ultra has the worst color options on any phone the fact that they improved all this on the note 20 ultra is a proof that even they weren't happy with the design of the galaxy s20 ultra so 167 days later what is my conclusion on the s20 ultra

Well it's a confused phone confused as to where it belongs in the market like if anyone has 1300 or 1400 dollar they should absolutely 100 percent buy the note 20 ultra like at this point note on the ultra should just replace this phone samsung should just make the galaxy s20 and s20 plus available like note 20 ultra is a better s20 ultra if you want to buy a galaxy s20 series phone you should buy the regular s20 or the s20 plus that has no camera issues or if you want to wait for

Something better you should wait for the galaxy s20 fan edition if you live in the international market and you just can't stand the exynos 990 inferiority then you might want to look at other brands entirely you can market all you want but the reality will always be the truth let me know your thoughts in the comment section below this has been my heartfelt review of the galaxy s20 ultra i mean this is coming after using a lot of other phones in the market and completely understanding what's about to happen on august the 5th

And where this phone stands it's just a complete honest truth regarding this phone drop your thoughts and i'll see you guys in the next one peace out
