    I agree. This is my 1st Note after having every S series since the S5 and my S20U was a big disappointment. Couldn't get rid of it quick enough. Absolutely love this phone.

    The note 20 is a serious contender if not the phone of the year. This devices rocks a true winner.

    I sat with my Note 9, absolutely loving it, resisted the urge to upgrade to S10/S10+, resisted the urge to upgrade to the Note 10, resisted the urge to upgrade to the S20 (though the camera intrigued me at first), almost resisted the urge to do this upgrade UNTIL I saw how much Samsung was offering me for a trade-in and the additional $150 incentive! That DID IT!!! Haven't looked back - this thing is SWEET!!!

    The battery is a disgrace. My iphone 11 pro max's battery lasts twice as long. Samsung should be ashamed.

    Twice... seriously? How long have you had your Note?

    There's always one in the bunch... I have no real complaints about the battery. Mine goes all day and I am a fairly moderate to lightly-heavy user and mine lasts me all day with minimal charging during the day (daytime charging is mainly when I use it in the car for Android Auto). Saying that the iPhone 11 Pro is TWICE as long is a bit of a stretch. Okay, a real stretch. At best, they are pretty on-par with one another even though the N20U has a bigger battery.

    So far i love my note 20 ultra also. My 1st Samsung phone was a galaxy s7, great phone but when the pixel 2 xl came out i had to give it a try. Great phone except for the screen. Samsungs screen is so much better. Then I tried the pixel 4 xl and I HATED that phone. Google went down hill on there phones instead of improving. Couldn't wait to get rid of that one. I paid it off when the preorder for the note 20 ultra started and traded it in. Best decision i made. By the way, My battery last all day easily. I do charge it everynight when i go to bed but when i put it on the charger its about 50%. Great battery life so far for me.

    Well, I know it took about two weeks or more for mine to level off and finally start showing some really good charge statistics. These phones need to learn your habits, put apps you don't use that often, to sleep, etc, and as time goes on, they seem to get better and better. I'm really pleased with mine now... when I first got it, my Note 9 made it look silly but within 6 or 7 days, it had easily surpassed the Note 9! In "Device Care > Battery >" Do you have "Optimized" Mode selected? You can also select "Adaptive power saving", although, I do not use that! Don't like it messing with my settings...

    Both optimized and adaptive power saving. I get about 5 hours of SOT. On my iPhone 11 Pro Max, I get about 10 hours on SOT w incredible stand-by time. It doesn’t drain nearly as fast as my N20U.

    Well... then, all that leaves me is maybe send your Note 20 Ultra back and enjoy your iPhone 11 Pro Max!

    It’s frustrating because I want the note 20U to be my main device, but being honest, the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s battery makes it unbeatable (not including iMessage and FaceTime too).

    The iphones biggest advantage is standby time. My wife kills the battery on her iphone 11 pro max pretty quickly.

    The battery on the iPhone 11 was ok but maybe a half a day before I have to recharge.

    With light usage I guess, but so can my N20U. My daughter has to charge her 11 pro max every night.

    I understand where your coming from its well known that the iPhone max has great battery life, if battery life, iMessage and Facetime are your main uses stick with the iPhone and send the Note back.

    Personally the iPhone could have a week worth of battery life and I still wouldn't go near one it's too locked down and gimped for me and you can literally do nothing on them.

    I've been "Off Charger" since 4:00PM yesterday, that's 16H52M, granted I only had 2H50M SOT in that time, mostly camera stuff and some image renaming, archiving, etc. A bit of internet browsing, some texting - 1H56M WiFi active, 3H43M held awake BUT, I am still at 71% battery as I type this so... and I've had the phone since 8/21, so it's had some time to "adapt" to usage patterns like I spoke of earlier!

    Again with chargers everywhere why worry? From portable to auto to home and office I haven't worried about my batteries in years. Now apple devices you have to worry I almost purchased a battery case for my 11 thank God the 20 came out.
