Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G Review

Score: 11.65/10

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is a high quality phone released last year, which features an enormous 6.9" screen, an exceptional Octa-Core CPU running at 2840 MHz, and 2 cameras, a 108 mega-pixels back side camera and a 40 MP front-facing camera. Let's take a deeper look at what this phone can give us.

Samsung decided to equip this phone using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SM8250 system chip, including a very fast Octa-Core processor running at 2.84 gigahertz and a huge 12 GB of RAM. This phone has an awesome 128 GB internal storage memory and a slot for SD memory cards, allowing the user to store lots of applications, games, pictures and videos without worrying about filling the phone.

It seems like Samsung forgot about optimizing the weight in this 7.83 ounces phone. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G construction uses Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 6) and Aluminum . This device is extremely thin, with a thickness of just 0.35 inches. This phone is a compact cellphone, taking into consideration it packs a 6.9 inches screen and it's just 6.57" long and 2.99" wide. Samsung offers this device in cosmic black and cosmic grey.

This phone has an awesome 6.9-inches display with a 1440 x 3200 resolution, giving this phone a delightful image quality.

This phone offers wi-fi connection (which can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 5G ultra high bandwidth connection type, LTE-A 4G high speed connectivity and also HSPA+ connection type (a slower 4G type) and fast 3G connection type, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This phone has two cameras, a 108 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 40 MP front side camera. this phone's back facing camera lens has a maximum F1.8 aperture so it can take awesome photos even in poorly lit environments. It is also able to shoot 7680x4320 videos at 24 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow-motion videos up to 960 frames per second (32 times slower than reality). This device also has time lapse video.

This cellphone uses a 5000 mAh massive Li - Polymer non-removable battery, enough to provide this phone with a great battery duration. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery is not replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to lose its charge, although with its 5000 mAh you will probably replace this phone before it becomes an issue.

This cellphone also includes a wide variety of useful characteristics like Fingerprint Identification, Facial recognition biometrics, Wireless charging capability, NFC, Bluetooth (5.0 ), GPS Localization and FM Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone may be a bit expensive considering it is sold for $ 1400, and some similar devices are being sold cheaper than that. No matter whether you want it for playing games, want this device to take many photos, need this cellphone for work or need a device to mostly use social networks and internet browsing, this phone is definitely the right one for you.
