  • I want to get this for the color alone. I have always wanted a pink phone or rose gold I'm color. This one is such a more grown up pink. I was looking for this phone thinking it was named rose gold. I have a Samsung galaxy sky pro so I've had it for years and it still works. Even though my husband dropped it accidentally on pavement floor. It just has cracks on the side of the phone.

  • Awesome phone,but don't you think the price I way too much just for a bronze colour, prettier spen, and better rear camera???like the front camera for both phones is the same, note 20 ultra has a pretty curved screen but all recent s series have them too..but the note 20 camera looks prettier on the back than note 20 ultra... Samsung is making their cameras too large the future we'll be saying, does this camera include a phone?

  • The Note 20 is nothing but a very expensive bet by Samsung, to produce a phone so overpriced that you'll spring even more money to get the Ultra that's actually worthy of the name.

  • I don't think of these Note20s as part of the same segment. I view the Note20 as top of the A-series (an A series phone with an S pen), and the Note20 Ultra as top of the S- series. That's how I rationalize Samsung's approach to these two phones

  • Can please more people talk the fact that there are Note 20 phones out there with an Exynos 990 processor which makes these phones even worse? The Exynos is less powerful and uses way much power than the SD 865.

  • Too bad for Exynos 990 variant uses, it's performance is so bad it's not even upto simultaneous QuadHD+120Hz display, side effect it's also disabled on SD variant because it can trigger backlash from Exynos users.

  • I hate the sharp square design and the "infinity" glass (edge glass) of the Ultra. The edge glass has always made it hard to "grip" your phone correctly and it always causes a glare that makes it impossible to read text from bad websites that refuse to use "padding" at least. I much prefer the Note 20 (regular). Too bad it's so expensive!

  • I urge the people of Europe and other regions NOT to BUY Note 20 because we are getting Exynos 990 chip, whereas, America and North America is being given SnapDragon 865+ for the same price. Samsung needs to reduce the price or provide the same chipset everywhere. Now we know why they did not discussed about processor in the Livestream.
