Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Review: More brawn than brains

 

It's almost everything you could ask for in a high-end Android phone, at least in theory. In practice, I worry if a software update can fix its camera issues.

Big, gorgeous screen with 120Hz refresh rate ; Zoom lens frames up nice shots ; Battery life that breezes through a day ; Top notch internals with 5G for every major carrier

Expensive ; Inconsistent, sometimes glitchy photo and video performance

Galaxy S20 Ultra review: Impressive but impractical

 

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is… a lot. It has a big screen with a very high refresh rate, a very sharp selfie camera and support for speedy 5G. It also features a trio of advanced cameras on its rear that can shoot up to 108-megapixel-sharp pictures, 8K video...

Powerful performance ; Vibrant display ; Versatile camera setup

Heavy build ; Exorbitant price

But there's an even bigger number that we cannot ignore: $1,400. The S20 Ultra is more expensive than the Galaxy Z Flip, which uses new and costly folding display technology. For this price, Samsung needs to deliver something nearly perfect; the Ultra...

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra review: shutter bug

 

A 108-megapixel camera was a big technical challenge for Samsung; they didn't quite pull it off.

Huge, 120Hz screen ; Great battery life ; Quality zoom photos at 10x ; Very good selfie camera

Main camera softens faces too much ; Main camera hunts for autofocus ; 100X zoom and 108-megapixel photos are mostly gimmicks ; Expensive for the value

It’s worth waiting to see if Samsung can update its camera software to resolve the focus and face issues. I’ve asked for comment on if one is coming and will update this review if and when it does. Until then, Samsung has certainly proved that it can...

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra review: Too much more for most

 

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is one of the greatest phones ever made, but everything about it is just too much.

Incredible processor, battery, and RAM ; Absolutely gorgeous display ; One UI has become one of Android's best overlays

Big, heavy, and awkward to hold ; Extremely expensive ; Camera is excellent but has some annoying bugs ; 100X Space Zoom is impressive but not very useful

Galaxy phones have been fast enough since the Snapdragon 820 processor in the Galaxy S7, but the Snapdragon 865 in the S20 line is on another level. Snapdragon 855 Plus-powered phones had already broken the 10,000 threshold on the PCMark Work 2.0...

The Samsung Galaxy S20+, S20 Ultra Exynos & Snapdragon Review: Megalomania Devices

 

It's been a long couple of weeks, but the wait is now finally over. Today we're ready to go on a deep dive into Samsung's most important phones of 2020; the new Galaxy S20 series represents a huge jump for the Korean company, and also for the wider...

Then there’s low-light, which is just a massive mixed bag of results. Here it’s clearly a matter of the software not being optimized, as sometimes all the S20 perform worse than the S10 phones. Yes, in the perfect conditions the phones are able to...

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Review: Too Much

 

$1,400 is a huge amount of money for a phone, but the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G gives you a lot in return - figuratively and literally. Siping the rarified air at the very top of Samsung's 2020 phone line-up, the biggest of the S20 trio has the most...

Incredible 120Hz display ; 10x lossless zoom is great ; Performance can't be faulted ; Huge battery

Some camera focus issues ; 100x Space Zoom is more gimmick than useful ; Very expensive

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is a beast of a phone with a 6.9-inch 120Hz display, a 108MP camera with super-long zoom and 5G standard, but its hard to justify the price tag.

But in the end, if you demand the biggest screen and most powerful zoom, the Galaxy S20 Ultra is the ultimate Android phone — if you're willing to pay the ultimate price.

Before and after: Galaxy S20 Ultra camera update is a mixed bag

 

A system update from Samsung was meant to address Galaxy S20 Ultra camera focusing problems and other issues. Did it work?

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra review: perfection exists only on paper | AndroidPIT

 

I've been using the Samsung flagship and the star of the new S-series for 2020, the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Here's my full review.

Our first impression of the Galaxy S20 Ultra was that it was a wolf in sheep's clothing, with no big surprises. Overall, it's a solid package, but there is so much overkill here. Samsung has shoved all of its chips into the middle of the poker table...

Review: Galaxy S20 Ultra fails to deliver the perfection its $1,400 price demands

 

You can get very, very good smartphones for not a lot of money nowadays. With a low price point, there's a lot of room for forgiveness. If a feature isn't perfect, that's fine! It was a good value after all. As prices go up, though, room for quirks and...
