    I saw the price and said no way. Then I started watching reviews. Big mistake. The 10x optical zoom really intrigues me. A lot!

    Ive had Notes for a long time. Use the S-pen some but not a lot. Mainly for writing notes.

    Samsung is giving 700 trade for the Note 10+ and 200 credit for accessories. After taxes I paid 800 for the note 10+, so it would be like I rented it for 6 months for 100 bucks.

    I know there will always be something better around the bend, but damn I like the camera. The 100x sky zoom seems cool, but it seems like you need a tri-pod to get really good pics with that. It's the 10X optical that would make me buy it.

    I'm going to wait for the Note 20+ (or whatever they call it). I just bought a new Xvida wireless case & a couple of other N10+ stuff & don't want to get the Ultra right now. Trade in offers are phenomenal but I do use my S-Pen often.
    Very cool phone though. Optical zoom is very desirable though...
    Maybe I'll be enticed by the Fold 2...
    Good luck with your decision.

    I have the Note 10 plus and cancelled the preorder 3 times on the S20 Ultra. Ended up preordering it through best Buy. Now I'm not trading in the note. I added a line to get the ultra.

    It will be very interesting to see what you think of the Ultra compared to the Note

    Well I was pretty pleased with it when I was investigating it at Best Buy in their demo stand. I can always return it within the remorse. If need be

    It seems like a great phone. But I'm waiting to see what the Note is like this yr. The features on the S20 Ultra, there will probably be a Note version of it with additional features. I'm waiting.

    Yep same for me, But if the Ultra is anything to go by, the Note will be flipping expensive lol

    I've been upgrading from the Note to the S series every 6 months from the S4 Note 4 and I always miss my Note WAY more than the S series. I think this time I'm just going to actually keep my Note 10+ until the Note 20+ or ultra comes out. It will be better than the S20 ultra for sure.

    I hate to do this to a flagship, but you asked for it.

    The phone is not as wide as a Note 10+, which means the measurements for this phone are kinda misleading. I prefer my phones to be wider than taller. If you compare this phone to a Note 10+. which I did on Friday, the note 10+ has a bigger viewer screen in landscape mode from top to bottom than side to side. And that's important because when we watch media, we look at the center not on the sides, so expanding the screen out left to right in landscape mode is not that important really.

    No new software update. It's still Android 10, same as the Note 10+, Gpu and CPU are only marginally better at best. I dare you to compare a game on both and tell me that there is a huge difference. Trade ins, while they help, you eventually lose money by doing it and it is just used to keep you on the hook to pay for the latest and greatest. The most of which, a person really does not need.

    The zoom thing is a gimmick, and its cool up until 30x. I had a very hard time keeping the camera steady and focused at 100x and half the time the pics looked back or like they had watercolors. You will most likely need to buy a tripod which is more money on TOP OF the 1400 that you will spend. Oh speaking of spending money, do you like 45w fast charging? Good, because you will have to pay for that out of pocket as well.

    No Head phone jack. No S-Pen, Lousy Fingerprint Scanner(thanks Burwil!) and does not have 3d facial recognition unlock, instead uses selfie camera. 5g is also a gimmick and being that it is so new, may not work as well, or may not even be available in your area. What's the point of having a 5g phone if you can't even use 5g?

    Price is absolutely horrible for a new phone. Very expensive. Its really not worth it you just got the s10 series or Note 10+. Do you really want to pay 1400 dollars for a phone that has 700 mah more and just a slightly better cpu and gpu which you probably won't be able to even notice the difference? All that and you can keep your current phone and wait for the Note 20 which probably will be wider, be just as fast, if not faster, and have a battery that will be just as big, if not better. That is what I am waiting for. That's all I can come up with on the fly, but you get the idea.

    Same lousy fingerprint scanner. Not interested in one of their new phones until they implement something better.

    I won't even consider buying a new phone until my Note 10 is at least 2 years old.
    I don't have to have the next shiny thing, I would much rather save or invest the money.

    I will wait for Note 20, i played with the S20 Ultra for almost and hour and was not impressed only thing camera and just a bigger battery and the 120 display and you can't really tell from 60 to 120 on the smoothness plus 120 depends what you on, me personally not worth the upgrade from the Note10 Plus, so I'll wait for the Note20 which will still be better than the S20 ultra no hurry here, my Note10 Plus is Outstanding so just letting some know my opinion.

    Also besides that watch some that got the S20 Ultra upgrade to the Note20 which people will always fall for it lol.

    It's great to look at the S20 Ultra though, because you know that the Note 20 plus/ultra/whatever, will be all the Ultra is plus more

    And it will be great to look at the note 20 also, because the S 21 or whatever will be all the note 20 is plus more. Not throwing the s pen in there as that's just extra the notes always have, other then that the 2 just copy each other with some extras added.

    To the OP, I've looked at the ultra, it's a great phone, just like the note 10 is. The next note will be also. I personally like the ultra not being as wide, it fits in the hand so much better. Cost wise.. If you think the ultra is expensive, the note will be also. I'm betting the option of getting one without 5G will be gone. That's part of the reason the S series are more expensive, they all are 5G. The note 5G version was higher priced also.

    Go to a store and play with one... The 120 refresh is noticable, and the note fans will be saying that when the note has it. Also, research the rumored next screen for the note. If you don't like the curve screen, the next note screen is looking to be more curved, almost wrapped around the whole side. No buttons, touch sensors on the side. That sounds like a case nightmare. Plus, the hole punch for the front camera will be hidden in the screen. I buy both phones, I'm buying the ultra. If that new screen does show up for the note 20, I'll wait and see on that before buying it. I don't think you will regret buying it

    Hopefully they can accomplish this in the same footprint as the Note 10+

    You will only get two years of updates, if that, after spending $1,400 for one.

    How's that for talking you out of it?
