I have a question, whether we can use Wasim, a Nano SIM and Memory Card together in this mobile (Ultra)? Because, the spec is not clearer whether you can use three of them together! Better Samsung clarifies this, which will make my decision easier one way or the other!

Samsung needs to polish their logo with used of sparkling steel. Samsung has doomed in their logo with plastic type that is why it affects their quality. But Samsung did their milestone though in terms of 8k Video -- that's the edge amongst the other. Thus, the 108 ultra wide mega pixel is exceptional but still the quality of product is still over Apple. I'm talking about the software and features not specifically about hardware and designs. But I preffered the attractive color as to be used just like Apple did on the iphone Gold because I find it attractive. However, although; Samsung was look nicer with the color black or socalled cosmic. Samsung Galaxy S4 was even looks nice with color of white frost -- if they did it bringing back that kind of color. I do like also the pebble blue of S3.

Arte8800, 20 Feb 2020Samsung how could you be so naive not cautious, no Xenon Carl-z... moreXenon flashes are very bright, but heavier on battery drain and bad with colour accuracy. Plus they're also chunkier, and probably a decade (or 2) older tech to LEDs. Regarding Zeiss, I am guessing that the latest plastic lenses resolve as much as glass or very similar. Plus they're thinner and more manageable for different lens elements, something that would be more difficult with glass. That's why very fee smartphone makers even consider it as an option.

I don't get it how people are willing to shed so much money on phones that some of its features don't apply to most users. WHY do we need so much RAM when software doesn't keep up with and 5G is in infancy and therefore useless for most people. Companies became so greedy and the worst part is people are willing to pay a whole paycheck for a phone.
I am not saying that making new phones is bad but Come on folks we are the ones who empower them to stick it to us. I am still using my note 3 ( Sending this ) and it still works. might go with a Xiaomi brand if I upgrade. BTW I still use the same battery that came with my phone. ( though getting dated as I have this phone since 2013)

James, 13 Feb 2020Samsung had to make sure there is enough space for four cameras ... moreDo you mean a Xenon flash? That would make the hump even bigger. That type of flash is unfortunately a lot bigger than LED's. Look at phones like the Galaxy Zoom, Nokia 808 and such.
(Also, that "blank" area where the Space Zoom text is written is where the optical zoom is tucked in, using a mirror under the lens to the left.)

Nick Tagataka, 16 Feb 2020It's weird you say that because the real life photo samples from... moreHi, I own both S10+ and P30 Pro and have used them both for photography extensively. So I definitely know what I'm speaking about. The P30 Pro is much worse in low light photography, and much much better in full stationary Night Mode. If you are right about the P30 actually getting more light, then it simply may be torpedoed by inferior focusing ability and inferior optical stabilization, as compared to the S10+.
As for estimating which of S10 or S20 get more light, I don't think this is really computable, because it also most likely varies with different environment lighting and in different scenes. So we have to wait and see the actual results from really critical reviewers. Samsung undoubtedly saves money by not having a variable aperture anymore, and saving money they like the most of all, which is why they push Exynos on the people in EU.
