Roman5, 26 Aug 2020Remember when phone manufacturers got rid of removable batteries because they said that "... moreYeahh... Samsung should put "Lite" on it...note and S series lost they identity since got lite model... So many differences between Plus/Ultra and Normal... Some say better buy a Plus/Ultra version than normal...and now lite version does kill the Normal version...
Remember when phone manufacturers got rid of removable batteries because they said that "Plastic phone backs do not feel premium"?. Well here we are in 2020 and a freaking 1000 dollar phone has a plastic back. What an absolute joke.
Definitely a much better upgrade than last year's Note10 5G. People think that the vanilla Note20 is just plain crap compared to the Note20 Ultra. But give me the choice to choose between the two, I'll take the vanilla Note20 all day. Considering the autofocus fiasco from the S20 Ultra's 108MP camera, I'm not sure if I want that same camera with the Note20 Ultra.
Interested in this. N20U had disappointing battery life. Wonder if the smaller N20 would hold up better because of FHD 60Hz display.
GSMArena when is your review coming?

BT has nothing to do with moving on with times. Losing that 3.5mm jack is called 'courage' by apple. I call that stupid.
pita, 14 Aug 2020type c headphonesThat's my point.
Type C adaptor, either it is a passive one and degrades sound quality. Or an active one that bypasses AKG tuning.
Finally a normal flat display!
Most people don't care about 64ghz refresh
rate and about having 64mp camera instead of 108 mp ( all these things are pure marketing).
The most important thing is that this phone has the latest software, latest processor and latest network
Who here complaining about plastic back is NOT planning to use a case anyway? Also, plastic is much more durable and shock absorbing than glass. I'm really glad to see this.
As for the lo-res screen, it's 400ppi FFS! More than that is imperceptible, just for bragging rights, and is a battery drain.
No headphone jack straight up sucks, but if you go into developer settings you can force 990kbps LDAC, which is much better than even aptX HD. I can't tell it from wireless. And much better than the 250kbps Apple is still peddling.
Can't wait for my perorder.

Also not widely supported by headphone manufacturers.

I find if you have an issue with the lack of 3.5mm headset then buy a A series or another brand of less world market share phone and just save your opinion!!. The rest of us are doing fine with the bluetooth headsets
Tech Master , 10 Aug 2020Plastic back, no high refresh rate, no higher resolution, 25w charging =1000$? Samsung, what ... moreThis exactly not buying this this time. Ultra version ugly heavy camera on back and Note 20 has lower performance much more than expect for price. S20 series carry the high Performance through family but not Note 20. Let’s see how Note 20 sales compair to Note 10.
Sound via bluetooth can never be as good as one via headphones. I use usb c to 3.5mm dac converter and great non bl bluetooth headphones and enjoy in music. I tried some sony wh... bluetooth hedphones and sound is atleast 50% worse..

Hamburger, 13 Aug 2020"Tuned by AKG" and then no phone jack! HAHAHAHAHA~ How do you enjoy the audio qual... moreYes!
I had no idea it had not curved screen when I pre-ordered it. You just made me very happy. The curved screens are awful.
"Tuned by AKG" and then no phone jack! HAHAHAHAHA~ How do you enjoy the audio quality? Use an adaptor to degrade the quality? Or use external DAC that totally bypass AKG? Or use wireless that restricts to max quality of AptX HD?
What nonsense... smh
