Anonymous, 19 Aug 2020btw, it's only 8gb ram in 4g/256gb version in eastern europeTry out S20 5G 12 gig Snapdragon 865 and ram available for user only 8 gig of ram! Hope note 20 ultra with 12 gig of ram not worst since note has more bloated software.

Can't even preorder 512 or 1tb.

My initial impression is that the Note20 has a heft to it that almost makes the Note10 Plus seem insignificant; almost. The feel of the Note20 Ultra brings it more in-line with the substance of the S20 Ultra. Even though I'm not in the habit of looking at the back of my phones I just know that the pleasantly chunky camera module is back there just waiting to go to work. Haven't explored the Note20 Ultra beyond just setting it up but it is a very good device.

Charging time is such a shame for modern and ultra-expensive device. This year many flagships from other manufacturers will have 30 min full charging time, whilst Samsung Note20 Ultra will be on 1 hour 20 min for one more year.

Heard something suspicious about the Note 20 Ultra.

The back is probably made of Gorilla Glass 5, not Victus as GsmA mentioned (thus an error). Checked multiple other websites (AA, XDA, etc.) it doesn't clearly mention the back's type. This is according to a Samsung salesman and a reviewer which I thought was making a mistake. If other websites don't mention it...what could go wrong?

The point is I feel cheated at paying the same for an inferior version of the same phone! Apple has better benchmarks, fair enough, I don't want an apple - I want a Samsung, hell I want THIS Samsung......just not the international version.

What an absolute disappointment of a phone. I've been putting off buying a new phone to replace my Mate 10 Pro with and was waiting for this, just to find out that it is only a tiny improvement over the Note 10. Thanks Samsung for wasting my time.

And to be entirely honest, Samsung should be dragged to court for making customers pay the same amount of money for an inferior device with the Exynos chipset.

Nick.B, 19 Aug 2020Just installed hw info, it is not Sammy panelAs Oneplus 8pro uses Samsung panel.
And judging the Oneplus and Oppo's panel specification.
They both have the same max brightness.
Same max Auto brightness.
HDR 10+
Same screen size.
Suffered the same display issue as OnePlus.
Both Oppo and OnePlus are from same company.
So, I was assuming it could be Samsung made.
I didn't say it is Samsung made.
