    I remember when the S20 Ultra dropped everyone complained that it couldn't do WQHD+ and 120hz, why isn't anyone complaining that Samsung is making the same mistake on the Note20 Ultra? This is literally the biggest feature I was looking for and it didn't happen.

    Looks like I'm sticking with my Note10+....

    Not sure why it’s such a big deal. They didn’t add it due to battery life I believe and really is fhd than noticeable from QHD? I don’t think so personally

    Wait, how did you establish that it's a mistake? Did you analyze how much more it would cost to manufacture the phone with that capability, or whether that's even possible without sacrificing features that most people want more?

    They can't even get the colors and configurations people want of something they've already committed to manufacture.

    I feel like this is one of those things that Samsung will "fix" in next year's Note making this Note barely an upgrade. I feel like the Note20 Ultra is in the same boat as the Note5 was and not really an upgrade over the previous years model.

    After trading in the Note10+ having to still pay over $700 is why it's a big deal.

    Agreed. No matter what there would still be complaint threads. I will enjoy my Note 20 Ultra just like I've enjoyed my S20 Ultra

    It’s a big upgrade from 10 plus

    120hz
    5x optical zoom
    50x digital zoom
    Better S pen features
    Better auto focus
    Wireless dex

    Honestly not sure what people expect year on year. The phone is already a spec beast as it is.

    That places it deeper in the spec charts. The Note20 is more than an incremental bump over the Note10 Plus merely on the cameras alone. Even the battery receives a five percent bump.

    I had the option to get the S20 Ultra coming from the Pixel 4 XL but decided on the Note10+ because 1.) It was much cheaper 2.) Read and watched many reviews on the horror stories of the cameras focusing issues and 3.) Had the hopes that Samsung would make the Note20 Ultra have WQHD+ and 120hz compatible.

    I don't see how people will happily pay almost $1400 (especially in a worldwide pandemic) for minor camera and pen improvements and Samsung not delivering on such larger improvements like the WQHD+/120hz upgrade.

    I agree, from note 10+ upgrade. Coming from s20 series not much of a upgrade, unless you really want the S pen

    I guess it's user preference. I would rather have a crisper higher resolution screen with 60hz over a duller lower resolution screen with a higher scrolling rate. I just tried as a test to see if I would notice dropping my screen resolution to QHD+ and I could definitely tell the resolution drop, for $1400 that's a no go for me.

    Yeah I agree, not from S20 ultra. Don’t think most would upgrade every 6 months

    I wouldn't now days. The S series and note series have become basically the same phone, one with a S pen. The S series was a worthy update from the note 10+, the same can't be said about updating from s20 to note 20 IMO.

    Not the first time. The S6 edge+ and the Note 5 was literally the same phone minus the s pen and non curved screen.

    This. There is very little difference between the S series and the Note series at this point other than the S Pen. Anyone who has an S20 Ultra shouldn't even waste their money "upgrading" to the Note 20 Ultra.

    More pros:
    LPDDR5
    USB 3.2
    5G

    Cons:
    No ToF depth sensing camera (for people who use to measure stuff)
    Less base storage
    Taller and heavy
    No 45w charging support

    To be honest, every year some folks say that the new Note is not a huge upgrade over the last Note. They'll say that next year, too. It's certainly not for those who don't find much utility in the new features.

    But folks who have the S20 and were expecting a huge upgrade in the Note20... C'mon - that stopped with the Note 5 or Note 8 when the S and the Note series became more and more alike. The anticipation wouldn't be for people to upgrade their phone every 6 months. That's why it always amazed me that people would get the Note 20 and then be ready to move on to the iPhone 12, or S21.

    A lot of Note enthusiasts, like me, however, do this ritual every year and seeing that I am on my phone more than my desktop computer - I'm always looking forward to the next big thing in the device that I use the most in my life.

    Very very few people are gonna use most of these features on a daily basis, much less acknowledge how improved they are over last year's Note 10+.

    It's worth the upgrade from a 8 or maybe 9, but definitely not a 10+

    Exactly. The product isn't worth the price compared to the 10+. Also how is the Note20 Ultra not 45W compatible? That's another slap in the face IMO. 🤦

    This comment hits the nail on the head. Some have been saying they weren't going to upgrade before the official specs were announced which is fine. Everyones entitled to their opinions. Will be interesting to see the comments of the pre-order shipping threads with those upset that others are getting the phone before them. Happens every year
