Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra vs Note 20 Ultra Comparison

How to choose between the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra vs Note 20 Ultra?

Are you hesitating between a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra vs Note 20 Ultra? Do you know what the differences are between these two smartphones? To help you make the right choice, this article examines whether that little word "Note" really makes a difference.

Samsung Note 20 Ultra: a giant screen with top-level performance

Both smartphones have a large screen, allowing for a generally great experience. The two 6.9-inch screens are perfect for watching YouTube and Netflix especially. But in terms of actual phone size, the Note 20 Ultra is slightly smaller. It's also slightly lighter than the S20 Ultra, which is always a bonus. Both phones offer a crisp, clear screen, and the adaptive brightness feature makes viewing enjoyable even in bright light.

The Note 20 Ultra has a 5X optical zoom camera, while the S20 Ultra offers a 4X zoom. It's not a big difference, but it's important if you like photography and shooting close-ups.

The Note 20 Ultra's fast Snapdragon 865+ chip (865 chip without the + for the S20) gives it a slight edge in speed. One key difference is that the Note 20 Ultra comes with an S Pen, which you often have to buy separately for other phablets. So you'll save yourself the hassle and some money if you're looking for a phone with a digital pen.

Samsung S20 Ultra: Professional photos in an ultra-stylish smartphone

Like the Note 20 Ultra, the S20 has a smooth edge-to-edge screen, but the S20 is more curved and rounded, giving it a softer and more elegant feel in the hand.

The S20 has a larger battery than the Note 20 Ultra, which makes it last slightly longer on average than the Note 20. As far as fast charging goes, the S20 Ultra is... faster. Aside from the aforementioned zoom feature, both phones offer excellent camera and video quality, each with three rear cameras. Both phones are 5G compatible - great news as 5G reaches more and more corners of the globe.

In our opinion, the winner of these two phones is the Samsung Note 20 Ultra, because it offers more features at a better price, which is not debatable. This smartphone meets all the requirements if you want a powerful phone with the extra creative tool that is the S Pen.
