About this deal

It stands straight up with a more square frame, which is only softened on the right and left sides by the curved Infinity Display. Limited by a 52 mm-equivalent tele-lens, detail on the iPhone’s 110 mm medium-range zoom shots is much lower than the Samsung, but it avoids artifact issues and is much more consistent in its resolution across the frame. Still, the latest Samsung flagship deservedly makes it into the upper regions of our rankings and most smartphone photographers will be delighted with the results of its camera. When successfully activated, bokeh quality is very good, with a strong depth-of-field effect, well-contrasted bokeh spotlights, and a natural-looking blur gradient effect.

You can see many examples of artifacts in this HDR example, too, including a hue shift in the sky, halo around the subject, ghosting on the hand, and flare in the bottom left corner. On the GFXBench graphics test, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra scored 1,455 frames on the Aztec Ruins (High Tier) off-screen benchmark, compared to 1,657 frames for the iPhone 11 Pro. In our lab measurements, texture scores for static scenes are consistent with the S20 Ultra and Mi 10 Ultra from low light (20 lux) to bright light (1000 lux), with a slight improvement over the iPhone 11 Pro Max.There have been some complaints from Galaxy Note 20 Ultra owners that the camera housing has been collecting dust and condensation underneath the glass.

This means flash-off generally captures a more atmospheric night portrait, with nicer overall exposure and good color, although detail on faces is lower and more noise is visible compared to flash portraits. Noise is slightly more prevalent on the Note20 Ultra 5G in all lighting conditions compared to the S20 Ultra and the Mi 10 Ultra, with a noticeable rise in visual noise in low light. Bokeh image quality is good in both indoor and outdoor conditions, as well as across the numerous factors we evaluate—when the effect is successfully applied.So, I have a N20U Exynos version (256/12), and I was thinking about the S24U, but I really don't care about the new stuff. Most people should opt for 4K with steady hands or, when things get shaky, 1080p, as boring as that sounds. The two come with 5G standard connectivity, though some regions may have special LTE or sub-6 GHz only variants, and both omit the audio jack. Of course, there's now the newer Samsung Galaxy S21 range - including the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which zooms further than the Note 20 Ultra, and even supports the S Pen stylus.

In addition, the Samsung Notes app now makes it easier to find your notes with a more PC-like file folder structure.The new Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a camera that’s ready to take your extreme close-up – and a lot of your money. Oddly, what’s not on offer here is 45W wired charging, which is supported by last year’s Note 10 Plus, and this year’s S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra, via an adapter that Samsung sells separately. But if you really want the stylus built in I'd go with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, especially since a Galaxy Note 21 reportedly isn't coming this year. The Galaxy Note 20 series also include a number of new software features, which include performance optimization for mobile gaming, wireless sync with desktop and laptop PCs, and improved DeX features for remotely connected to compatible devices.

We have retested this device using the new version 4 of the test protocol and produced this completely updated review. In our perceptual analysis, dynamic range isn’t quite as good as the best devices for very high-contrast scenes. There's a tighter field of view on this camera (20 degrees instead of the S20 Ultra's 24 degrees), and it's 12MP instead of 64MP, but we don't see issues, only improvements. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra's Night Mode is good but it's not quite as bright or colorful as what the iPhone 11 Pro could muster. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is the superior camera phone based on our testing, as it includes a bigger main sensor that lets in more light, a LiDAR sensor that speeds up autofocus and Dolby Vision video recording and editing.with accounting for the rounded corners; actual viewable area is less due to the rounded corners and camera hole. The Note20 Ultra 5G’s videos are darker in most simulated conditions compared to the Mi 10 Ultra in our measurements, however, and particularly in low light between 5 and 20 lux.
