ICT SANSAR Review : Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
The most excellent smartphone Samsung has developed so far is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. It is a significant improvement for the Note series as well. There is plenty to get in love with the Note 20 Ultra, from a 120Hz screen, 108-megapixel camera to a more polished S Pen stylus. The Note 20 Ultra seems to be the ultimate version of what the Note series started to be in several respects. Samsung’s One UI’s latest integration does a fine job of maintaining functionality with minimalism, offering users the option to change as much as they want. The feature set unlocked by the S-Pen is, of course, the most significant justification to choose the Samsung Galaxy Note flagship instead of any of its rivals from the Android world. It also enhances interaction motions to use the phone without pressuring it, along with a barrage of features that improve interoperability.
As expected, the Note 20 Ultra also brings the display to the next level. We get a curved 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a resolution of 3088 x 1440 and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Even the centrally located ‘infinity-O’ punch-hole camera is considerably smaller than anything previously offered by Samsung. The screen-to-body ratio is significantly higher than the remainder of the lot.
The Exynos 990 SoC powers the Indian variant of Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and it has 12 GB of Ram. In day-to-day use, you will not find any significant problems with efficiency or how well the phone works. Apps open quickly, multitasking is smooth. It is an experience of the top-tier.
Note 20 has a triple camera setup. The primary camera has a 108MP image sensor that natively shoots at 12MP. The ultra-wide shooter has a 12MP resolution and a 120-degree field-of-view. And last, the Telephoto is handled by a periscopic camera that uses a 12MP sensor along with a 5x zoom.
Coming on the battery side, The Note 20 Ultra has a battery of 4,500mAh, and it will give you more than 5 hours of screen-on-time on lucky days. A 25W USB Type-C to Type-C charger is included in the box, which can recharge your phone in about 80-90 minutes.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra offers a typical dual speaker setup. The sound quality is loud. The audio was clear and crisp through USB Type-C earphones, and there’s no headphone jack. Samsung continues to opting for ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanners. It’s much faster than that of the last year. The second option is the optical face unlock, but it too takes a fair bit of time to take you in.
The price tag of 1,04,999 places the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in a completely different league. No doubt, It is a luxury handset. Android loyalists may undoubtedly consider the Note 20 Ultra, power / productivity-oriented users, or only those who have the budget. Otherwise, with approx 1 lakh, you can do a lot.
