S20 Ultra - - >Periscope 48 MP, f/3.6, 102mm (telephoto) or 4x optical, 1/2" sensor.
(pixel binned to 12MP with 1.6 micron pixel size).
The quality of zoom shots will be miles better than the Huawei p30 pro.
Mobilemaster, 12 Feb 20201.8 aperture is nothing spectacular, I wonder why they choose this? Even the old S8 has 1.7.S20 ultra with 1/1.33" sensor f/1.8 will allow more light compared to S8 with 1/2.55" sensor f/1.7

The camera has only improved while rest of the things work smoothly.
Plus If you are like most people, using stock ROM, OneUi is more optimized for Exynos compared to Snapdragon.
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2020That if you think android it’s totally open source! Way more things possible on Android that can't be even thought of on iOS.
I remember how 512mb Ram phones did widgets smoothly while a jail broken iPhone with 1gb ram fail to recreate the magic of HTC flip clock. Struggled and lagged like hell.
Android is miles better than iOS in terms of functionality and tapping into the real resources of the device.

Had an S10e Exynos. Won't even run PUBGM at HDR graphics ultra framerate (40fps) constantly- it just stutters. iPhone XR can even run HDR graphics Extreme framerate (60fps) provided that antialising is off. I have already turned off CPU limiter and set screen resolution to HD+ only.
Meanwhile COD Mobile also stutters in very high settings, Shadowgun Legends won't run at smooth details at 60fps smoothly. GRID Autosport can't run smoothly at maximum details.
Battery won't even last for 2 days under constant usage. Image processing quality of camera shots are decent, shadows are lacking, compared to Snapdragon version.
This is few of the reasons why I exchanged it for an iPhone 11 and realme X2 Pro. Satisfied with both phones (90Hz in X2 Pro is a bonus, and it's surprisingly cheap with good cameras).
By the way, this time S20 in my country seems to use Snapdragon SoC, maybe this one's going to be much better.

Exciting but well overpriced for an Android phone, unfortunately. But the price of S20 and S20+ is the same in SE Asia, at least.
This phone will appeal greatly to mobile photographers. I am waiting to see its image quailty with its 9-in-1 pixel binning tech (Nonacell) and 100x zoom. 8K 24fps is not really useful, if there's no OIS (S10+ has no OIS at 4K 60fps)
However, this only applies to the Snapdragon version. Exynos version has decent image processing quality (confirmed this on a S10e Exynos) and not to mention that SoC potentially throttles easily (not very good news for 8K video recording).
Skip Sammy phones with Exynos chipsets.

It works about 15% of the time, if that. The face recognition is perfect but I use sunglasses a lot, and the fingerprint sensor really kills my mood very frequently.

Mobilemaster, 12 Feb 20201.8 aperture is nothing spectacular, I wonder why they choose this? Even the old S8 has 1.7.Galaxy's 1.5f aperture was one of the top reasons to choose it over the Chinese competition - you could do fast night shooting where e.g. P30 Pro would always produce blurry garbage.
I get that the new big sensor can get more light in, but I doubt it can offset the loss in aperture number. We have to wait and see.
So 1 year old P30Pro has real 5x optical, where much much more $$ s20 ultra has 4x optical from where starts digital AI bs

Moreover they never testing battery drain in standby and while running GPS, which is where Exynos also fails. There's a reason Samsung uses Snapdragon everywhere they can, why they closed down their Exynos ARM core dev center, and will most likely dump Exynos altogether soon. Anyway, let's wait for the S20 Exynos vs Snapdragon benchmarks. Bubba.
This is a spectacular phone, no doubt about it,
BUT let's be serious, EUR/£/$1500 it is insane for something that will look outdated after 2 months.
Btw, I have a Fold 5G 12GB/512 GB. Do you know how much money Samsung is offering to me if I trade it: £450. For something I have spent £1900 in Dec '19, meaning 1 month and a half ago.
It's crazy! So, Samsung, if you listen, start pricing more ethically!!!!!!!
nobody need alot of camera in a single phone , those camera's not even compared to equal professional cameras,
I had played the samsung 108MP sensor for a few months, it is amazing sensor it is so close to m4/3 you guys will love it
How did i got the samsung 108MP sensor? I bought the mi cc9 pro which has the same sensor
