    I don't know why, but i am finding it very easy to not push the button on Upgrading.

    2 Reasons for me really.

    1. I don't like the Large Payment at the end or give your phone back
    2. The Camera from reviews looks not an awful lot better than my S10+

    I really am not feeling the love for the S20

    What are your reasons if you are not getting it or haven't yet?

    I've only had my S10 for a few months so it's not update time but:-

    1. There is not such a massive difference on spec/performance between the 2 models
    2. Lack of a headphone jack is a deal breaker for me.

    My previous S8 was a great phone and I would have stuck with it for a while longer had my wife not destroyed her S6 Edge. I must admit that I don't fall for the hype
    over new model devices or indeed operating systems. I know time will come when I need to upgrade but having Samsungs since the S4 have remained loyal but this headphone socket nonsense will definitely make me rethink my brand choice.

    I currently have the s10+ 1tb version. I purchased this phone in October 2019. I found it used for $600. I realized that being first with a phone, especially Android phones, are not sound financial investments.
    I will upgraded but it may be when the s20 comes to Verizon in Q2 or after the Note 20 is released.
    As for right now my phone has all of the little things with no compromise.
    I'll put that $1100-$1500 towards home landscaping or re doing my driveway.

    Your "problem" is the S10+ is already too good. It's a good problem to have! And I just don't think these petite incremental upgrades year over year give people much incentive to dump a thousand bucks on a new phone. That goes for all brands not just Samsung.

    As for the S20 line...5G seems to be a pipe dream for the majority and I don't see any major camera improvements (or any other major new feature for that matter) that justify an upgrade. If you already own one, the S10 line is just too capable IMO to justify a switch to the 20 series. And Samsung can keep their "free" earbuds LOL.

    For an S10 user, I don't see a real great reason to upgrade except to have the latest and that's just a preference to throw money on a hobby/interest IMO.

    Because it really comes down to asking yourself... Is there something on the S20 that's so much better on my current or not on my current phone that I need now to play?? That's just gonna make my current phone look old??

    You gonna be left behind in proccesor speed?? No
    Gonna miss out in being able to download at 1000 megabits with 5G around town?? No.
    Can't live without 120hz? Really can't go back after seeing it?? No.
    Camera is going to be night and day better than the S10+ or need that 100x zoom?? Jury out.
    The battery increase will give me an extra half day of use?? Dunno.
    Do all those changes make the S10+ fall so far back that it makes it worth the cost of the new??

    So, personally, put it all together I don't see the need and I wouldn't if I had a S10+.

    I have an Note 8... so I am thinking about it. I probably could still enjoy it for a 3rd year really. But even then I'm not running to pre-order and buy one tomorrow... and that's with me getting corp price at $899.99 for an Ultra. I can probably wait and see what they do for the Note 20. I may change my mind after checking out the demo at Best Buy this weekend.

    You S10 guys are going to get Android R and OneUI2.0 so software wise you should be same as S20...

    Still on the fence but leaning towards keeping my money this time around. The s10 plus is still a great phone. Price jump this year is too much. Not enough of a design change or performance upgrade. Feels like the s8 to s9 upgrade

    Both my Note 8 and Note 9 work great, I have no need for a faster soc or larger battery. I haven't filled the 64Gb of storage on my Note 8 and have similar usage on my 9. Screen refresh doesn't interest me enough for an upgrade.

    Camera wise it's not worth it either, it may be better than past phones but I've got 3 DSLRs and 2 mirrorless cameras with over 20 lenses. Last 2 cameras and 6 lenses combined cost less than the phone does and take better photos.

    Absolutely no logical reason for me to buy it.

    Really no logical reason for anyone to buy it at the current price point.

    Not in this time and feels strange. But think of it this way. Microsoft is telling you that they are releasing a new Xbox with full 8k capabilities and it will be $250 more than the last one. The only hitch is that the 8k will not really be useable until the summer of 2021. Would you buy it? That's 5G right now and honestly it's a joke other than the usual carrier spin.

    If there's something sexy about the new camera setup that appeals, by all means go ahead, but I have a hundreds of pictures from almost every Galaxy phone and I challenge anyone to tell me which phone they came from by the level of quality and detail. The differences just aren't there.

    The thing I will miss is staying in the upgrade loop and of course pulling the plastic off the new phone. Aghhhhhh!!

    I will not be getting the S20 this year. I just got my S10 in October 2019, so I'll be good for a while now. Maybe in a year or longer, I'll see. But I'm also wanting to keep an eye out for the Pixel 5. I do miss my Pixel 2 but I'm happy with my S10.

    Other than the hefty pricetag and the potential size barriers (I have small hands), I just don't see a justifiable reason for upgrading.

    S20 and S20 Plus are about identical in size to their predecessors. Technically, they're even slightly smaller. Unless you just meant the Ultra.

    Interesting that 90 percent of people rejecting the S20, already have one of the S10/Note 10 family, which still performs great. The S20 despite the number jump, isn't really the leap forward that Samsung wants you to think it is.

    Cool new features, but nothing most people "need". Samsung has been future proofing their phones since the S9, so I'm not surprised interest in yearly upgrades have waned.

    Went to best buy to check the phone out, it's cool but is it worth the upgrade? Not for me. The 120hz is ultra smooth though I will say that.

    If I did upgrade, the 120 refresh rate and large battery are what I'd go for. These new phones are seriously future proof, which is tempting.

    I'm still on the fence, leaning towards no.

    That's a sweet deal if you are you getting an Ultra for 899? I know they have an EPP program for many Companies but I thought it was 7 to 10%. Do you work for Samsung?

    This ^^^^^

    I have pre-ordered the 20+ but if I get a sense that these issues will remain then I will cancel.

    The S10+ (Ceramic) is the nicest phone I have used over the last 12 months but that camera just ruined it for me and being Exynos no chance of a stable Gcam port either.

    I agree. I don't have any cameras but have the Note 9 and Note 10 Plus. I'm not impressed with the S20 lineup (which it is usually a reliable forerunner of this year's Note lineup). I'm seriously thinking of selling the Note 20, selling my Note 9 and buying another Note 10 Plus just before the Note 20 is launched. .

    No, just a small/medium sized company with AT&T and Verizon business accounts for our wireless needs. We deploy quite a few phones but they usually hang on to the phones a long time so he lets me use an upgrade available on a line if I want as long as I pay for it.

    Just like the old consumer subsidized pricing you could get any flagship for $200. Those days are long gone now as it’s slowly creeped up to level now, smh.

    I think I was moreso thinking about the Ultra. But still, I'm looking forward to holding all of the devices in the hand before making a decision on whether or not the sizes would work for me.

    The last time I got a subsidized phone phone from Verizon about 5 years ago they became really sneaky and doubled the line access fee on that line for two years so you really paid full price anyway.
