You NEED to know THIS before you buy the Galaxy Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra!

by birtanpublished on November 7, 2020

So the samsung galaxy note 20 and note 20 ultra have been announced the pre-orders are up or depending on when you're watching this you can order them straight up but the point is this this video is really about explaining to everyone the caveats of the note 20. now i don't care if you buy it this is not about making you want to buy or not want to buy the phone i don't really care but i do want to point out some things that maybe have slipped by the radar a lot of people

Maybe don't realize some of the things about the note 20 and note 20 ultra when they buy it and when they get it they would be disappointed so i just want to make sure it's clear what you are getting i've done these videos before and i think some people misunderstand the point of them not here to convince you to not buy the phone let's be really clear about that everyone here that's watching with a rational ear and national eye will be able to tell that that's the case but i want you to go

Down to the comment section and watch all the people that'll come in and we'll say some of the weirdest things you've ever seen when i'm just trying to save them some money the galaxy note 20 and note 20 ultra are amazing phones but there's some things you should know about it so before you buy it let's get into it i'll 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 just let's just get into the video now as a galaxy note lover myself or at least from galaxy note 2 to galaxy note 10 i've held every single one of them i've owned every single one of them including what my favorite one was which is the galaxy note 7 rest in peace to that one but this is the first year that i'm actually

Skipping the galaxy note series of phones and based on my last video the comment section in there bruh a lot of you are skipping it too if you haven't seen that video i'll leave a link in the description and link in the end screen because here's the thing a lot of people who left comments in that poll that i did whether or not people are going to buy it like over 87 of you are not buying the ultra anytime soon maybe you're making the right choice

Because every year up until this year every single spec on a note phone was better than the previous s series of phones and this year is actually the exception now the performance of them might still be better than the series but this is literally like the first year where the note has some inferior specs to the s series of phones inferior and again i don't care if you buy the phone or not i'm not trying to keep you from buying a phone as a matter of fact

I'll probably put a link in the description below if you want to go buy it i don't care but you should at least know these things because some of them are in really small print in different parts of samsung's website and i thought i want to point them out to you just in case so let's start with the things that they both share with each other they both have a 10 megapixel front facing camera which at first might not sound bad until you realize the s20 ultra's front-facing camera was

Was a lot more the s20 ultra's front-facing camera was 40 megapixels now before you freak out this isn't really gonna matter that much the front-facing camera on the ultra or even the regular galaxy note 20 is going to be fine but it is weird that they had to bring the megapixels down the the again the end result of what that looks like is probably not that big of a deal but when you go to the note you just expect everything to be better this is just one

Of those things that isn't they both have a 12 megapixel wide camera one of the cool things they showed was the ability to do wireless decks to your television but what they didn't mention is your television has to support miracast now a lot of newer smart televisions do but they never really mentioned it it just made it seem like you could literally just send your images to your television this is not exactly a hard thing to overcome it's pretty easy to fix with different streamers and stuff

So i'm not gonna make a big deal about that however one thing that some of the people overseas definitely already know the pain of is the exynos processor now people in north america won't have to worry about this but people overseas already know and i've seen it in my comment sections already don't buy the note if you're overseas the exynos processor is not only a little bit slower but sometimes not even go with the battery i've actually done a video about this kind of processor issue

And the fact that samsung's gonna go with amd here soon hopefully to alleviate this issue i don't know why they do this they split the processors up between certain countries and other countries where we get the snapdragon 865 plus which is awesome um and uh everyone else gets the xynos which is not awesome so for people overseas this right here alone is a deal breaker a lot of people are going to look at this and go nope i'm out not into it doesn't matter what else it does i'm out

And i really don't blame you let's do some comparisons between the galaxy note 20s and of course the s20 ultra um first of all the s20 ultra actually has a 5 000 milliamp hour battery and you would expect the notes to have more and they don't ladies and gentlemen they don't 4 300 milliamp hours for the regular note 20 and the note 20 ultra gets 4 500. now could it be that the processor is a little bit more efficient

With less battery i mean maybe but i wouldn't i wouldn't hold my breath for that the s20 ultra has 45 watts super fast charging and the notes don't this one kind of confuses me why did they go backwards on the fast charging i don't i can't quite understand this one again another thing that the notes have always had is either at the very least the same if not better specs so again we have something that's that's lesser this is already concerning to me the note's supposed to be the superior

Phone of the year and from a purely statistical standpoint it just simply is not but there's other things let's just talk about the regular note 20 when it's a thousand dollars here in america and see if it's worth a thousand dollars number one the galaxy note 20 is made of plastic and i know that some of you don't care but a lot of people will i can't remember the last time or if at all a plastic phone has been sold for a thousand dollars a plastic phone one thousand dollars and something i

Know you guys are going to want to know about is the fact that it only has eight gigs of ram and even worse no 120 hertz display that's right if you got used to it on the s20 line of phones or maybe you've been holding out because you've wanted that and you figured you'd get the less expensive note well don't expect no 120 hertz you ain't getting none nah bro not happening and it's a 1080p screen well slightly better 2400 by 1080 so it's not even like the quad hd

Display i mean the note 20 is just this happened last year with the galaxy note 10 the smaller version really we just told people to skip that one all together there were so many compromises and as you can see we're here again with more compromises but then it gets weird you just figure the ultra would be better and in some instances it is and in some it's just it's we're back to weirdtown for some reason the ultra has the 108 megapixel wide camera but the telephoto camera is 64

Megapixels on the galaxy note and only 12 on the ultra now i looked at this spec and thought that this was backwards or something on samsung's own site like there's no way this can be right like it's so drastically different couldn't be right could it 30x zoom on the galaxy note 20 and of course 50 times on the galaxy note 20 ultra that has to do more with the megapixel of the uh telephoto zoom lens i believe um let's be honest here you're not going

To use 40 or 50 times x besides the one or two times you're creeping on your neighbor you might have seen someone talk about the 1500 nits of brightness on the display now mr who's the boss actually showed this in his video i suggest you watch that video but it's only on the ultra again if you're on the 20 you ain't getting it of course 12 gigs of ram on the ultra like i said before eight on the 20. uh not that that should matter i've talked about how much ram a phone should have i

I don't see the point beyond eight but here's the thing you think you're gonna get it and you ain't getting it you ain't getting 120 you ain't getting a glass back you ain't getting a quad hd display you ain't getting a lot it seems to me there's a tremendous amount of compromise now some of this may and i don't know this for sure may be in response to the poor s20 sales the very beginning of the year especially with the pandemic going on so who's to say that maybe somewhere along the way they tried to cut some costs to

Bring the price down we thought at one point that the galaxy note would be upwards of 1500 and if you looked at the price of the s20 ultra that made sense because not only were the galaxy note series of phones always better they always were more expensive as well so it would have made sense for them to be more expensive but for now they're actually at least the ultra is less expensive than the s20 ultra um yeah i mean this is just a very strange year what i hope they're doing is preparing

Themselves either for a less expensive note or what would be my really amazing dream combining the note in the fold into the new note a folding note now we know the type of person that really wants one of these phones is someone who's into business or production or something a creator of some sort and listen they even made it a really cool point to show that you can stream your xbox to it which is awesome but i don't imagine that's not going to be the case across other samsung phones

You see this happens a lot where they bring out features on the new phone and then actually put them in updates on the older one we saw this last year where some of the camera tricks that were on the s20 are now on the s10 you got to see that on the last year's phones but there's another one other really big reason why at the very least you should not buy this right out of the box the reason why you should not buy it as soon as it's pre-ordered is because and i said this last year and i was right

Last year the price is gonna drop quick they always do on samsung phones there's always a sale right around the corner i mean i literally said that it would happen within the first couple of months of it coming out and very shortly after that the price dropped there was a sale but there's always a sale there's always a sale literally if you can wait just about a month and a half after the release of this phone you will get a great deal for it now

To be clear as of right now there are some pretty decent trade-ins that you can get for the galaxy note 20 note20 ultra there are some great deals you can get on the samsung website if you want to but uh if you just wait it's just going to be a better deal and i feel kind of bad because samsung's been doing this for years where where they'll release something at a full price maybe they'll give you good trade again maybe they won't maybe don't have anything to trade in and then just a couple months later

They'll cut off like 300 off the price of the phone and you're the sucker holding the bag because you couldn't wait again this is not exactly a very exciting phone it's just more of the same which is one of the reasons why myself and a lot of people in the comments from my last video are giving this a pass but what about you are you excited to get the galaxy note 20 or note 20 ultra leave a comment below we'll take a look at it by the way there's still some other things to come about this i need

To talk about the phone that is finally bringing me back to android the one phone that has been able to do it i can't wait to talk about that so hit subscribe if you're interested in that but also i talked about why so many people are actually not going to buy the ultra right here so make sure you check out that video and then there's some other fun videos here below that i hope you go check out i'll see you next time peace and love
