Your photos look great !!!

Hi i'm sasha sigan from pcmag.com and this is a first look at the samsung galaxy note 20 ultra now this phone is what the galaxy s20 ultra should have been and considering it costs less than the galaxy s20 ultra does it really seems like a slam dunk at the high end of samsung's lineup let's take a closer look at a couple of the flag kit features here and the design of the phone so the first thing i want to show you here is this camera bump

Look at this thing it's solid it's square it has a lot of cameras on it that's because this is a modified version of the galaxy s20 ultra camera array with its 108 megapixel main sensor now the s20 ultra had some trouble with its camera the trouble being that the 108 megapixel sensor has issues with focus but samsung added a laser autofocus module to this one it's right over here and as a result i've been finding in my initial tests

That the focus is much better and much faster on this galaxy note 20 ultra than on the s20 ultra the note 20 ultra also has the space zoom that the s20 series had but instead of supposedly going to a hundred x this one goes to 50x now i think that's just uh expectation management here the 100x zoom on the galaxy s20 ultra was almost impressionistic it was kind of useless this is a very similar camera layout but it's promising less zoom

So it's just uh putting you in a more realistic context let's take a look around the phone so we have of course the s pen and now notice the nice mystic bronze color of this phone uh this is one of the new colors and the s pen is also mystic bronze now there's this new feature where if you hold down the button on the s pen and you sort of make scribbling motions in the air it does various things for instance i just made a scribble motion and it took a screenshot so that's a new

Thing that the s pen can do i'm gonna put the s pen back in here now you see the usb c port obviously there's no headphone jack that there hasn't been on samsung flagship phones for a while this does have fast charging it has wireless charging it has reverse charging uh this phone has a 4500 milliamp hour battery the smaller galaxy note 20 model uh which we don't have yet has a 4300 milliamp hour battery on the top there's the sim card slot

That also has a micro sd memory card slot this phone comes in 128 and 512 meg storage models the 128 meg costs 12.99 512 meg costs 14.49 now we've got a 6.9 inch screen here that has 120 hertz refresh rate now of course you're not going to see it scrolling at 120 hertz on this 30 frame per second video so you're gonna have to trust me on that for now now i did notice one thing which is that the 120 hertz refresh rate only applies in fhd mode like on the galaxy s20 series

If you go to settings and you go to display you find that if i try to switch to wqhd mode it tells me it can't do 120 hertz now that's a pity because 120 hertz screen on this device actually also connects to the s pen here i've got samsung notes on the screen and if i scribble with the s pen i'm not sure you can see it in this video but the pen is pretty much lagless samsung has reduced the pen lag to nine milliseconds which is

About the refresh rate of 120 hertz screen which means that this really does feel instantaneous it feels like pen on paper the s pen has always been terrific this is an even better s pen than before and now it's on par with the ipad pro's pencil too now there's a lot of other crazy features here that you can see a lot of them in this panel um you see dex which is samsung's desktop mode which uh this year it lets you cast your ui to a tv

You see uh music share that's a new feature which lets uh two people listen to the same music on different sets of bluetooth earbuds uh there's nearby share that's a new one that uses the new uwb chip in this phone to let you beam files to other note 20 devices by aiming them at each other i'm not quite sure why this is much better than uh regular wi-fi direct sharing but we'll find out when we have a couple of note 20s around

Then of course there's enhancements to link to windows now samsung has kind of become the microsoft alternative to apple's ecosystem of iphones to macs to ipads and link to windows is going to let you mirror applications on your note 20 on your windows pc as well as get notifications as well as drag and drop files and that's really cool for windows owners under the hood there's a qualcomm snapdragon 865 plus processor so that's the fastest one

Available right now along with 12 gigs of ram and a 5g for all the us carriers this is an unlocked model of course this phone will be available in unlocked and carrier models and all of the models will be able to access the entire layer cake of all of the 5g variants on all the carriers this is a relatively rare feature right now most phones don't have uh both high band and low band for at t and t-mobile and so this joins the s20 in being able to do that i'm

Looking forward to giving you a full review in the future not quite yet but i wanted to show it off to you today because this is going to be one of the most meaningful phones of the summer i'm sacha sigan from pcmag thanks
