Design

I’m not a big fan of Samsung phones, but while holding the Standard Note 20, I couldn’t stop nodding my head and having the feeling of holding one of the nicest phones in the world.

The design of the phone is just so mind-blowing that I doubt there would ever be a single person who wouldn’t sincerely appreciate it. The phone is one of those you’d stop to ask yourself: how many days did the designers of this product even spend on its design?

Starting with the shape of the phone, the device is quite rectangular, although its somewhat rounded on the sides. Its front is protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5, while the rear side features a plastic.

I understand some people would expect the back to also feature a glass, but trust me when I say the plastic used for the phone is so premium that you wouldn’t mind at all.

As regards the thickness of the phone, the manufacturer also did well. The phone has a thickness of just 8.3 mm.

Phones with loads of impressive hardware are ordinarily known to have a thickness of about 9 mm or more.

But the fact that the N20 features even more impressive hardware and can still be this slim, makes Samsung deserve a round of applause in this aspect.

The Standard N20 is available in three colours, namely mystic green, mystic bronze, and mystic grey.

These colours are all cool colours. They are simple, but premium. Even though Samsung could have done a better job by making the phone available in flashy colours as well, I strongly doubt there’s going to be a person who wouldn’t be okay with any of these three colours.

The N20 Ultra’s design is pretty similar to that of the Standard N20, but there are differences. And these differences seem to even make the N20 Ultra more impressive.

For instance, the Ultra is slightly larger and more rounded on the sides. Its punch-hole front camera is also smaller and it features glass on its rear side.

Another aspect where the N20 Ultra happens to be more impressive is the aspect of colours, the phone comes in a nicer set of colours, namely: mystic bronze, mystic black, and mystic white.

It would be bad of me to forget mentioning that the N20 Ultra is quite heavy. But this shouldn’t really come as a surprise, considering the power of the phone and the fact that it features glass in its front and rear sides.

Computing Hardware

The chipset that’s going to power your build of the any of the four Note 20s, would depend on whether you’re buying a build meant for people in the US or people from any country of the world.

Talking about builds meant for global users, the chipset equipped in these builds is the Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865+.

This chipset is one of Qualcomm’s best chipsets and has a core which could run as fast as 3.00 GHz.

This 3.00 GHz core is, in fact, the main core of the chipset, so expect the phone to be unbelievably responsive.

When it comes to doing highly computing-intensive tasks on the phone, you are also guaranteed not to experience any lag on the phone.

While the main core of the chipset could go as fast as 3.00 GHz, another three of its cores can go as fast as 2.42 GHz, while the four remaining cores are rated at 1.80 GHz.

In addition, the global versions of all the four Note 20s, the hardware which would handle their graphics processing is the Adreno 650.

The Adreno 650 GPU is a graphics processor specially designed to handle the kind of graphics tasks the members of the N20 series would demand from it.

So expect the phone’s computing hardware to make very good use of the phone’s display.

While the Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865+ is the chipset which would be featured in global versions of the members of the N20 series, the Samsung Exynos 990 is what you should expect in builds of the phones meant for people in the US.

The Samsung Exynos 990 is not as popular as the Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865+, but this chipset is just as impressive as the Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865+.

The Samsung Exynos 990 also comes with an octa-core processor, and two of its processor’s cores are rated at 2.73 GHz.

A processing speed of 2.73 GHz is also not a joke. So with an N20 having two 2.73 GHz cores, you can expect them to be just as responsive as builds featuring the Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865+ chipset.

While the Adreno 650 GPU is what handles the graphics tasks of builds coming with the Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865+ chipset, the Mali-G77 MP11 GPU is what’s responsible for the graphics tasks of builds coming with the Samsung Exynos 990 chipset.

The type of Note 20 you intend buying would determine what amount of RAM you’d be getting. If you’re going to be getting a Standard Note 20, be it the 4G or 5G version, expect your build to come with 8 GB of RAM.

But note that the 8 GB RAM featured by your build of the phone isn’t the same as the 8 GB RAM seen in many other phones.

The RAMs used in builds of the all the four N20s are much faster, so expect to have impressively fast experiences, when running heavy apps on any of the phones.

For those who’d be buying a 4G version of the Note 20 Ultra, you should also expect 8 GB of RAM.

However, for those who’d be a 5G version of the phone, your build is going to come with 12 GB of RAM.

However, regardless of what your build has, 8 GB RAM or 12 GB RAM, be assured you’d never have to complain about not having enough RAM, when using any of the Note 20 devices.

Display

Samsung is a major and indispensable leader, when it comes to display. And the company didn’t fail to lavish their Note 20 phones with mind-blowing displays.

In fact, the displays of these phones are presently among the best in the smartphone world.

Starting with the display of the Standard Note 20 [both the 4G and 5G versions], the display is a super AMOLED display.

The display has a very high colour accuracy and also has support for over 16 million colours. So expect the graphics quality of this phone to be highly impressive.

The display of the phone further measures 6.70 inches, and with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels, it didn’t come as a surprise that I was blown away by the display’s sharpness when I first turned it on.

Being more elaborate, the display’s pixel density is rated at about 393 PPI, but due to the fact that the display is highly enhanced, the graphics it produces are way more impressive than those of many other displays having slightly higher pixel densities.

While the display featured by the Standard N20 is impressive enough to make you want to cough out €1,000 or €1,100, without thinking much, the display of the N20 Ultra is even more impressive.

The N20 Ultra comes with what some people consider to be the best smartphone display in the world.

First and foremost, the display measures 6.90 inches. But it isn’t just large, it also happens to feature a resolution as high as nothing we usually see.

The display comes with an astonishing resolution of 1,080 x 3,088 pixels — a resolution which leaves the super AMOLED display with a pixel density of about 496 pixels per inch. The colour accuracy of the display is also a thing to marvel about.

The resolution, display type, enhancements, etc are however not the only things that make the N20 Ultra’s display so impressive, the refresh rate is also an impressive thing.

Most high-end phones come with displays having refresh rates not more than 60 Hz, but Samsung went beyond expectations, to make the phone’s display support up to 120 Hz refresh rate.

What this means is that when playing games that involve moving extremely fast, you get to enjoy the games better, since more frames can be displayed per second.

This also means you get the chance to respond much faster to things happening in the game.

It can be quite difficult to express, in words, how cool a refresh rate of 120 Hz can be. But once you get your hands on a build of this phone, you’d have a pretty good idea of what I’m trying to say.

Operating System

The Android 10 operating system, is the latest version of Android that exist at this moment, and this OS is what all members of Note 20 series feature.

However, note that the Android which powers these phones, is not the stock Android 10. A custom version of the OS is rather what powers these phones.

Being more elaborate, the Note 20 phones are powered by an operating system known as the One UI 2.5 OS. The OS is cool, just as you’d expect.

It has some nice improvements over the standard Android. And I wouldn’t be surprised if you even turn out to love it more than the stock Android 10.

The fact that these phones come powered with the Android 10 OS is however not the most impressive thing, in the aspect of operating system.

What I find most interesting, in this aspect, is the fact that when the version 11 and the version 12 of the Android OS roll out, the phones are also guaranteed to get their OS upgrades.

In fact, it’s also possible further OS upgrades would be made available to the phones, when the Android 13 and the Android 14 roll out.

Storage

Which member of the Note 20 series you decide to buy, would determine how much storage space you can possibly get.

If you’re buying an N20 with 4G support, you can only get a build having 256 GB of storage. You should however understand that 4G N20s do not come with micro SD card support.

As for 5G N20s, there is a variant of the phone coming with 128 GB of storage and there’s also a variant coming with 256 GB of storage. For those who wonder whether 128 GB should be okay, the answer is yes.

In other words, if you’re considering saving some money, feel free to opt-in for a 128 GB build.

However, if you have some extra cash to spare, you can consider a build equipped with 256 GB of storage. You should also be aware of the fact that 5G Note 20s do not also have support for storage expansion.

If you decide to opt-in for an N20 Ultra with 4G support, you can either get a build with 256 GB or 512 GB of storage.

If you would be using the phone for 3 years or more, then a 512 Gb storage might be ideal.

If you however wouldn’t be using the phone for this long, you probably have no good reason to cough out some extra cash for a build which features 512 GB of storage space.

The Note 20 Ultra which comes with 5G support, is the most impressive of all members of the series.

And if you’d prefer this phone, you can get a build with 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB of storage.

And just like I stated above, a 128 GB build would be best for people who’d like to save some cash, while a 256 GB build is what you should ordinarily consider.

If you however plan using the phone for 3 or more years, you should consider a 512 GB build.

The massive storage space which members of the N20 series may feature, is however not what makes their storage so interesting. The type of storage devices equipped in them is what’s most interesting, when it comes to this aspect.

Ordinarily, high-end devices come with UFS 2.1 storage devices. Storage devices of this type are ordinarily massively more impressive than eMMC 5.1 storages we see in mid-range phones.

And while we all expected the storage device of the N20 phones to be UFS 2.1 devices, Samsung exceeded our expectations, by featuring UFS 3.1 storage devices in the phones.

For those who don’t know what UFS 3.1 storage devices are, let me simply state that they’re the state-of-art storage devices for mobile phones.

With this kind of storage devices, the phones can achieve bi-directional data transfer, at speeds up to 23.2 Gbps. This transfer speed can be compared to the transfer speeds of impressive SSD storages seen in laptops.

While some people may feel UFS 3.1 storage devices are overkills and unnecessary, they are not.

When it comes to the phones in the Note 20 series, this type of storage devices can rather be very useful.

Take for instance, when taking 4K and 8K videos on many high-end smartphones, you’d often have a laggy experience, due to the inability of their storage devices to record these videos at speeds higher than what they could take.

As a result, even though those phones have 4K and 8K videos support, using them for these kinds of videos isn’t pleasurable.

But with the help of the UFS 3.1 storage devices featured by the N20s, the N20s would seamlessly take 4K and 8K videos.

There are many ways the UFS 3.1 storages would be beneficial, and what I’ve just explained is just a single example of how useful they could be.

Camera

Even though, some people claim Samsung could have done a better job with the rear cameras of the Standard Note 20, one thing no one can deny is that the cameras of the phone are impressive.

The main rear camera of the phone is a 12 MP camera. This camera is not only capable of taking highly impressive pictures, it can also be used to take 4K and 8K videos, as hinted above.

And trust me when I say the 4K and 8K videos it takes are impressive, and not the mediocre 4K and 8K videos we see some other high-end phones take.

While the main 12 MP rear camera alone is okay to blow your mind, the phone also features the Samsung Bright S5KGW2 lens which is responsible for its telephotos.

There is further the Samsung S5K2LA lens which helps with taking ultra-wide pictures. This lens is an ISOCELL lens also having a resolution of 12 megapixels.

And just like every other lens the phone features, it is pretty enhanced. It also worthwhile stating that the ultra-wideness of the lens is one of the most impressive we have out there.

The front camera of the Standard Note 20 is just a 10 MP camera. But from the few pictures I could take with it, the Sony IMX374 positioned in the front of the phone proves to be much better than some 32 MP camera featured in many other phones.

In other words, you have no cause to be disappointed about the fact that the front camera is just 10 MP in resolution.

In fact, it’s worthwhile stating that this front camera can be used to take 4K and 8K videos — this is not a thing a huge number of phones can boast of.

The set of cameras featured by the Standard Note 20 are guaranteed to wow anyone who uses them, but those featured by the N20 Ultra are even more impressive.

Starting with the rear cameras of the phone, the main rear camera of the N20 Ultra is a mind-blowing 108 MP camera.

This 108 MP camera which goes by the name the “Samsung Bright S5KHM1” is an ISOCELL camera which can be used to take as high as 8K videos, among many other impressive things.

When using it to shoot 720p videos, you can achieve up to 960 frames per second.

While the Samsung Bright S5KHM1 is responsible for normal pictures of the N20 Ultra, a 13 MP camera called the Samsung S5K3M5, is responsible for its telephotos.

This Samsung S5K3M5 lens is not as impressive as the Samsung Bright S5KGW2 lens of the Standard N20, but still, my experience with the phone proves the Samsung S5K3M5 to also be an impressive lens.

As for ultra-wide pictures of the N20 Ultra, a lens known as the Samsung S5K2L3 is responsible for this.

This lens hasn’t been spotted in a lot of phones, but my experience with the phone also proves the lens to be a cool one. The resolution of this lens is 12 MP and it’s an ISOCELL lens.

The camera which serves as the front camera of the Note 20 Ultra is also the same featured in front of the Standard N20. So the same thing I’ve said about the N20’s front camera applies to the N20 Ultra’s front camera.

More

The stylus of the Galaxy N20 and the N20 Ultra are also things worthwhile of mentioning.

Compared to the stylus of the Note 10 Plus, the styluses of members of the N20 series are more impressive.

The stylus of the Standard N20 has a latency of 26 ms compared to the 42 ms of the Note 10 Plus.

What this means is that when using the N20’s stylus, the response is so fast that I could hardly notice any lag while using it.

If you’ve used the stylus of the Note 10 Plus you should understand how unappealing a stylus lag can be.

But with the N20’s stylus, you can wave a goodbye to this little annoyance.

While the stylus of the Standard Note 20 is impressively fast, the stylus of the Note 20 Ultra is even faster.

The latency of the N20 Ultra’s stylus is just 9ms, compared to the 26 ms of the Standard N20.

Final Word

The phones released under the Note 20 series are hands down among the most impressive we have out there. Only a very few products can compete with them.

So, if you can afford any of the N20 phones, you should feel free to buy it, as they are all very unlikely to end up a regret.

One thing I must however state is that these phones are quite overpriced.

In other words, if you’re the kind who not only buys phones for their impressiveness but also considers whether they’re a great value for money or not, you might want to stay away from the Note 20 phones.

Your turn. What do you think of samsung galaxy note 20 and its Ultra? Do you think is price in Nigeria is too much or just worth the asking amount? Let me know in the comment.
