Design

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has a Metal Frame, and Gorilla Glass 6 protection on the back and front, Also this time the Screen is not extra curved like that of the S10 series, it is curved but in a comfortable manner, free from accidental touches Also the S20 Ultra Support wireless fast charging 2.0
It feels great in the hand, and now as the cured edge display is flattened out accidental touches are minimum, The Phone feels very premium in the hand, But it is big at 6.9 inches the display is big, so people with short hands will feel some difficulty while using it

Display

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has a Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity-O Display (3200×1440) With 120Hz Refresh Rate and HDR10+ certified, A PPI of 511, a huge 6.9-inch Screen, in terms of Display, quality, there is nothing which can be said against the screen, they are Samsung screens’ for their Flagship’s. There is not a single Display out there better than this one, the colors, the contrast, the viewing angles everything is at its best, also with 120Hz refresh rate everything feels much more fluid and snappy, Also there is HDR10+ Support(Duh..)

In India, we are getting the Samsung’s own chipset the Exynos 990, while it is not as powerful as the Snapdragon 865 but still, there are no apps which can push it to its max, obviously excluding the Benchmark app.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is powered by the Exynos 990 is an Octa-Core Chipset with 2×2.73 GHz Mongoose M5 & 2×2.50 GHz Cortex-A76 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 core’s, it coupled with Mali-G77 MP11 GPU, it can easily handle all the heavy titles at the highest setting for gound amount of time without any lag or frame drop, even the Rendering and other similar processes can be easily handled by this chipset.

But Samsung Should have given the choice for choosing the SoC

Memory and Storage

Rating: 5 out of 5.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra - One Word For it, Excellent 15

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has 12GB LPDDR5 RAM for the LTE version and 16GB LPDDR5 RAM for the 5G version, and 3 Storage options 128/256/512GB UFS 3.0, The Storage can be further expanded up to 1TB through a micro-SD card slot
With this amount of ram the multitasking is a breeze, there is even an option to fix the apps in the background, so that it is permanently open in the ram, to get a better experience, the UFS3.0 Storage is clearly much faster than the UFS2.1 and it can be easily noticed while using it, also the storage is expandable through a microSD card slot

Camera/Optics

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The star rating should be something like 4.75 but there is no options for 4.75 so it is the way it is

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has a Quad Camera Setup Consisting of a 12MP Ultra Wide Camera with F/2.2
A 108MP Wide-angle Camera with F/1.8 a 48MP Telephoto Camera with F/3.5 and a DepthVision(TOF) Camera, it has Hybrid Optic Zoom of 10x and a super Resolution Zoom of up to 100x

The Pics from the main camera, are easily the most detailed Pics out there from a smartphone, The color reproduction, saturation, and dynamic range are also excellent but there are some issues with autofocus, and when it detects a face the color seems to a bit saturated, but it all can be fixed through software updates and hopefully Samsung does that
The Night Mode Shots were also excellent, one of the best out there, only behind the Pixel 4Xl and in some cases iPhone 11 Pro, but still having the Most detailed pics out there

The ultrawide Shots are great, but cannot be called excellent, the colors are some times off, but are still great, and the same is the case in night mode
The Telephoto Lens is something else, it can Zoom upto 100X, at 100X the pics are acceptable, but not great, mostly the characters were readable, however, the more exciting thing is the 30X Zoom in the 30X zoom the pics are still crisp there are still a good amount of details, and easily the most amount of details when compared to other phones.
Portrait Shots are excellent with excellent accuracy and edge detection

Video Recording options include 4320P @24fps, 2160P @30/60fps, 1080P @30/60/240fps, 720P @960fps
it can shoot videos at 8K 24 FPS, the shots when still are Excellent but when the camera is in movement there is some quality degradation, having said that the 4K shots are still excellent, some shots are even on par with iPhone 11 Pro. Also, you can take still shots of 33MP from the 8K Shots, and when the phone is still the 8K shots are best out there

For selfies we have 40MP with F/2.2, selfies are again excellent, the color reproduction, skin detection, and saturation everything is excellent
