Samsung S21 Ultra vs Note 20 Ultra Comparison

Can't decide between the S21 Ultra vs Note 20 Ultra?

It's not an easy decision, as both of these great smartphones offer plenty of processing power and features. They both have impressive designs and specifications that only phones of this calibre can offer. If you're in the market for a new phone with cutting-edge technology, we'll help you choose the one that's right for you, depending on your needs.

Samsung Note 20 Ultra: the perfect alternative to paper

If you like making lists and taking notes, then this is the smartphone for you. It's perfect for people who rely heavily on their phones for work, and it's ideal for being productive on the move. Slightly older and slightly cheaper than the Samsung S21 Ultra, the Samsung Note 20 Ultra is for the creative among you. Both phones support the S Pen, which allows you to draw, write, take notes on screenshots and convert handwriting to text. The difference is that the Note has a handy slot for storing the S Pen - ideal if you tend to lose the pen (which can happen!).

Both phones have up to 512GB of storage, but the Note has plenty of room for extra storage, thanks to the microSD slot, so you can always add more when you need it.

Display quality is the Samsung Note 20 Ultra's weak point compared to the S21. The S21's higher pixel density of 515 PPI, compared to the Note 20's 496 PPI, gives it a sharper visual experience on screen for better photos and videos.

Samsung S21 Ultra: Superior battery life and performance

Both phones have a battery life of about a day when fully charged, but the S21 lasts a few hours longer in average use. However, it is important to note that the S21 does not come with a charger, which is good if you already have a compatible one, but not if you need to buy a new one.

Camera performance is a key factor that consumers are looking for these days, and the S21 comes out on top with a more powerful zoom - 10x optical and 100x digital space zoom (compared to 5x optical and 30x space zoom for the Note). The S21 also has a zoom lock for steadier, clearer photos.

If you're looking for speed over design, the Samsung S21 Ultra has a faster Snapdragon 888 processor than the Note's 865, but there's not much to say about that, as both devices are very fast and smooth.

If you need a phone that combines practicality with the ability to express your creativity and jot down ideas and reminders wherever you are, choose the Samsung Note 20 Ultra.
