S20 ultra exynos not best cpu but i dont gaming on this smartphone, so i dont care on chipset. The best is the Camera and Otter Things. Using Android 10 instead 13,12 or 11, since older version are more stable than newer Versions.

Now my S20 ultra is getting one UI 5 (android 13) right now, it's really superb UI and better than previous UI.

Its still better than S21 Ultra european variant cause of exynos in that market. Also dxomark gave lower score to it for the camera. It will get Android 13 also soon so its one of the best flagship you can get for 330$ nowadays on ebay.
