Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Review
The 3-Minute Samsung Galaxy Flagship Smartphone Review
The Ultra Smartphone
By Rachel Hutson | 13 February 2020
The design of the S series is very basic, except for the large rear camera setup. The body is an Aluminum frame with Gorilla Glass 6 front and back with a flat screen as they have moved away from the curved screen with this new lineup, the color options are limited to gray and black though.
The display is an Infinity-O with 6.9-inch dynamic 2X AMOLED screen, and a stunning 120Hz@FHD display giving you seamlessly smooth scrolling and gaming, to add they have included an ultrasonic fingerprint reader.
They have made the device IP68 dust and water-resistant. Memory is another large upgrade offering 128GB/12GB RAM, 256GB/12GB RAM, or the massive 512GB/16GB RAM. The battery is 5000mAh with a 45W fast charger, a stunning Exynos 990 chipset octa-core managed by android 10.0, and a one UI 2 overlay operating System.
The Quad camera setup consists of a 108MP wide-angle, 48MP telephoto, 12MP ultra-wide, 0.3MP depth sensor, and finally a 40MP selfie camera. Stereo speaker with AKG tuning.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has some amazing features; it's hard to choose what is the best. The most notable is the cameras, a large 108MP wide-angle camera that gives you high-resolution sharp shots that can be cropped and not lose detail. Space zoom offers 10x hybrid optical zoom due to the folded lens, then it further gets enhanced by the AI. Night images are improved by the pro-grade camera taking multiple shots and merging them with the AI to give clear night shots.
With the revolutionary 8K video snap, you can even pull 33MP still images right out of 8K video, the best video quality we have seen on a smartphone so far, and to better the video quality they have boosted the stabilization with AI to give super steady video.
There is no headphone jack, this limits you to use Bluetooth headphones instead of your standard set.
The design is basic as it looks like most of the previous S series, and the color options are limited to black and gray.
Is it for you?
The Galaxy S20 Ultra is a hugely upgraded device that is good for gaming, video, and photography with a super sleek design that fits in your pocket.
What we like
The S20 Ultra comes with a range of charging options for the massive 5000mAh battery, 45W fast charge,15W wireless charge, and a 9W reserve power bank for wireless charging.
Knox security is a nice safety feature that protects all the data that is stored on the 128GB/256GB/512GB internal memory. The dynamic AMOLED 2x 120hz display even comes with eye care, allowing for long use with little eye strain.
What we don’t like
The price is something to really note as its one of the most expensive smartphones to date, but with this premium price does come a premium phone.
Should you buy it?
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is the ultimate smartphone to date, and the real question is, do you want to pay the ultra-price tag.
