KitKat 4.4.4 was androids finest.

Jalal, 11 Feb 2021Is anyone facing battery drain issue in note 20 ultra?Yea on Android 11, it's draining 6% in 8 hours overnight, while Android 10 it was using 4%.

I've gone rooted back too 10.
11 sucks.
I don't see the point off even updating phones, it's you nerds techies on here take it way serious, while majority off public don't give rat's about it.
Nothing wrong, ain't broken don't touch it, fix it.

That phone is truly fantastic. Battery lfie is fine, not superb but not bad either. There is an actual pen inside the phone so the battery cannot be as big as in the S20 Ultra. However I really look forward to the Note 21, I have high expectations. Hope to see some nice upgrades including the battery and no more Exynos different than Snapdragon issues. If S21 is any indication, we could actually look forward to that.

Reading that whole article about the note 20 was making me sick, I had one and it's garbage. So I consider you the only person who knows what they are talking about.

humanErorr, 05 Feb 2021Dude, last sentence of your post makes absolutely no sense..What's the problem with the last sentence?
I don't have Note20 but I tend to believe it since my S9 takes better pictures than S10.

I am very disappointed with the battery drain of my 9860 TGY (Hong Kong version, Snapdragon) Without any use it goes down ca. 25% over night in flight mode. Does anyone else have the same problem? I think it got much worse since the Android 11 update. I am really disappointed with my purchase and should have stuck with my fabulous Note 9.

It's the worst display Samsung ever produced, it lacks contrast and is a washed out mess. Put it side by side with the S21 Ultra, then you'll know what a great display looks like

Where you not happy on 10?
We all know updates causes problems, then why update?

Very nicely written review, witty and savvy. I own an Snapdragon 512GB version and agree with everything you said. I wished the Note 20 would have evolved from the Note 9 without any regressions but at least I finally got a pocketable wide angle camera which I tremendously appreciate.
