This shows how bad Samsung algorithm is, they should learn from apple or Google on how to process photos.
It mustn't be all over the place .
If you're buying this device because of the camera, its advisable you get the iphone 11 pro max because its consistent and better in most situations... except maybe you zoom alot
Dometalican, 28 Feb 2020Ultrawide is bigger in sensor and pixels which means for better ultrawides than this phone
... moreUltrawide on Sony is not bigger than S20 ultra. It's same size.
21W is sufficient for you but users want quick top up and want the option for fast charging. On Samsung the fast charging is also proprietary free so you don't need manufacturer charger to avail fastest changing speed. Plus 5000mAh battery in 58 min is way better compared to 2hrs for the Sony Xperia 1. 2hrs not acceptable in 2020. Chinese flagships are charging huge batteries under 30 min.
Type C earphones are bundled with every box not just pre-orders.
The wireless galaxy buds are available wit pre-orders for an additional 30-40 dollars.
Samsung does a lot of smoothing leading to low details. iPhone 11 pro Max have better dynamic range with bight mode off and way better detail rendition with night mode on..
This phone is just underwhelming. My current note 10+ is better in terms of dynamic range. So much for a $1400 smartphone

looking absolutely amazing along with more detailed photos. And please check out CNET's professional grade 8k shootings which was totally best with the scenes being of first gen.. And the phone yet to release finally.. All those reviews are made of pre release versions.. Even most of phone reviewers (youtubers) shouldn't be called tech youtubers then let alone pro photography experience.
Not just this review. Other sites feel disappointed too.
The so called "best screen ever" by DM could not even show delta below 2.
Subpar battery endurance for 5000mAh.
Camera that is not even 5% better than note 10+.
Lower sales than expected are already being reported.
No audio/sound review??
Overall I expected better from the Ultra. Pretty much hyped for everything that all together didn't quite translate into reality. I also expected better from the Exynos this time around atleast that definitely did not happen.

Can't argue with Telephoto
21W charging is perfectly fine to preserve the battery for longer.
Wish it was a bigger battery but let's wait for results
Headphones may be bundled with pre-orders
Availability...tough to argue but I'm in the US so I'm at least game for the Xperia Pro.
Let's wait and see with GSMArena's review shall we?
Despite being a great fan of Samsung for their flagship only I'm not quite happy their s20 ultra.. Specially because of the price tag and also for showing Apple like mindset.. Although the device has to be 80% or more better than iPhone 11 pro Max.. But they still didn't give 100% as they were used to till last year.. Specially in pricing and choosing best specs and quality compared to the market.. People should go for cheaper model like note 9 or s10 if they don't care for latest specs and I'll definitely pick other device over this one at least for one year or till the release of Note 20.. Although I feel okay for S20 and S20+ 4g variants although it should be packed with 5g at that price tag and should not charge extra 100 pennies for 5g variants..
Very good review. Totally agree with the points about marketing. Disappointed with Ultra. The Note 10 is a better phone.

Weak Ultrawide, weak 3x optical (useless in low light),weak selfie camera.
21W charging in 2020 is laughable with 4000mah battery.
Lack of higher refresh rate with useless battery hog 4k.
No bundled in earphones.
Lack of availability in most parts of the globe (out goes the warranty too with it)
S20 Ultra has the best low light studio shot I've seen. The difference with S10+ is like night and day. Despite the criticisms from all-too-keen critics, you can't beat physics. Large sensor wins!

Check some of it on YouTube.
It's disappointing in low light as expected.
So where is the audio review?
