I got 256gb dual sim snapdragon version which I guess the best ever you may get.next time try to get Sammy from hong kong that region including taiwan they are getting the best out of samsung and snapdragon.cheers.
I was quite surprised about the Note 20 Ultra 5G battery life, TBH. After turning the Adaptive battery on it lasts the whole day, most of the days with more than 20% left.
And while I'm sure the benchmark scores for Exynos fall behind the Snapdragon, in real life I didn't notice a single moment that would make the phone feel slow or sluggish. What is more, this "256Gb for the price of 128Gb" version we got (probably to offset the worse processor) has allowed me to use the phone as a dual SIM instead of using SD card. This means more data on my plan and quicker memory for the phone.
Overall, I swore to teach Samsung a lesson and not to buy Exynos Note phone. But my Note 9 wasn't doing so well anymore and I needed a new one...and after considering my options I went for N20U and to be honest, I don't regret my decisions.

One-way civility... one person calls me a troll that never had a Samsung because I disagree with him, and the other calls me a blind Samsung supporter because I bought the phone brand new instead of refurbished a year later. Bad if you do, bad if you don't...

The general "complaints" about the S8 generation, by you and your fellow trll accounts, were that Samsung were greedy for charging Americans the same as Europeans for an inferior Snapdragon processor.
Like I said, no one cares about your fake complaints, Karens.

Getting your wished for gift for half the price a little later on and then kindly (thinking of others who actually need money) by dropping the other half to a charity that feeds starving people for example, to have a good inner feeling?
But no, you rather support Samsung with a straight 500 sum just because they want it...
which narrows it all down to this: clearly someone prefers following orders rather than doing what is right and for the greater good but instead opts to support a company that doesn't give a hoot nor have a pinch of dedication to serve their consumers like a loving mother would.

To be honest I'm quite excited about getting an iphone again. Hadn't had one since 2014 I believe. I just hope the camera is good or else I'm returning the phone immediately.
Have been wanting to try out the Note 20 Ultra as well but I have to wait until the price is reduced.

Samsung and just about any other business loves customers that do that.
How wise to buy a full priced product when its BoM & the remainder of its surplus fees don't even total up to half of the initial price...
But hey, your salary allows splurging out even when common sense of value should be in place so why not, right?

Not because it has poor UI or performance (which the ROG excels at).
I have heard reliability issues in the previous models. ROG Phone 2 had a fried motherboard issue, play it repeatedly until it overheats and instead of the cooling system trying to work, the motherboard gets damaged instead.
Check it in some Asian phone forums. ROG Phone 1 had a screen crack issue (despite normal use).

There is always a reason an OEM puts a certain price tag on it.
I wouldn't leave too much of my personal details in a Chinese phone. Maybe for mobile gaming that's still OK.

Hard to lecture a die-hard fan or salesman and that's quite sad.
Had to sell my German Exynos S20+, everything was good but the overheating, throttling and weak battery killed this brand for me back in the day i was die hard samsung fan, had the s1, s2, s3, note 1, 3, 5 but I gotta be honest the competition is better and in most cases even cheaper, samsung needs to get back to their root, which was providing the best of the best specs with non-apple prices... I really have a bad taste in my mouth since the s20+, their midrange and flagship phones are not good
