Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Review

Score: 10.79/10

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is an absolutely great cellphone released in August, including a very powerful Octa-Core CPU ticking at 3000 MHz, a 6.7-inches screen, and two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back side camera and a 10 mega-pixels front-facing camera. Let's take a better sight of what this phone can give us.

This phone is quite a compact phone, taking into consideration it presents a 6.7 inches screen and it's only 6.36 inches long and 2.96 inches wide. This cellphone has an amazing design, with a thickness of just 0.33". About its construction, this cellphone is mainly made with Plastic . Samsung is offering this cellphone in many colors, mystic bronze, mystic gray, mystic green and mystic red. This time, it seems like Samsung forgot about optimizing the weight in this 6.84 ounces cellphone.

This phone is powered by a high performance 3000 megahertz Octa-Core processing unit, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SM8250-AB chip and a big 8 GB RAM. A good advantage of this phone is its 128 GB large internal storage and even though it doesn't have a slot for SD memory cards, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of applications without thinking about filling the cellphone.

Samsung packed this phone with a great 6.7-inches screen, and a 1080 x 2400 resolution, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels forming the screen.

This device provides Wi-Fi connectivity (which it can provide to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 5G cutting edge internet connection, LTE-A (4G) ultra fast data connection and also HSPA+ connection type (a slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 has two cameras, a 12 megapixels back facing camera and a 10 megapixels front side camera. this device's back facing camera lens has an aperture of F1.8 so it can take detailed photographs even in low light environments. The Note 20 can also shoot 7680x4320 videos at 24 fps, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos at 960 fps. In addition, this phone's camera also features time lapse video.

This phone comes with a high capacity 4300 mAh Li - Polymer non-removable battery that can keep this phone running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it at all. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to get older, whereas with this big battery you will probably replace this cellphone before that becomes an issue.

This cellphone also features a wide range of great characteristics like Fingerprint Identification, Face ID, Wireless charging system, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (allows communication with other cellphones, computers and accessories), GPS Navigation and Radio, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone is being sold for 1000 dollars, which is quite a high price for comparing with similar cellphones. No matter if you you love taking photographs, need it for work, will use it as a social cellphone or are looking for a gaming cellphone, this cellphone is definitely the correct option . This cellphone comes with Data Cable, Quick Start Guide , Ejection Pin and Travel Adapter.
