    Yeah that's true. Weird that it's all over the place. The PCmag review says it was about the same 12 hours SoT with 120 at full hd and 60hz at quad hd

    It's all gonna depend on how they do battery testing. Video rundowns are gonna have good battery life b/c it doesn't use 120Hz refresh, but other types of testing where 120 is in use battery life would be lower. I think rundown tests in general aren't great determining battery life on high refresh rate displays.

    The Verge rated the S20 Ultra a 7. Yikes. I’m glad I didn’t preorder it.

    These reviews are giving me pause. The Ultra should be knocking people's socks off. Not getting that impression. I get that it's not a phone for everyone and maybe that's the issue.

    I'm thinking of going Plus instead of Ultra. Want the cloud blue anyway and I'll still get the snapdragon 865 with the 12GB of RAM, 120hz refresh, bigger battery and screen then my Note 9 and a smaller camera bump then the Ultra.

    I think the note 10 plus is better than the s20 plus so to me there is no reason to make that switch. I guess I can just return everything to samsung as my cancel button is gone and already received my watch. What a shame.

    Im gonna play with it myself and make a decision. Seems like these reviews are always way off. Same thing happened when i got the pixel 2xl and 4xl . The reviews where underwhelming and then when I got the device I love them.

    Since I can't cancel, I guess that's right. I do think the Ultra is aimed at the phone geeks like all of us here and perhaps the dings are because it's overkill for most people. That said, I'm really disappointed in the battery life issues both at 60 and even moreso at 120. The entire draw of this phone to me was the 120 and these reviews are saying its basically unusuable. Why did Samsung need to go with 120 instead of 90? Seems like a massive misfire. Surely Samsung is aware that it crushes the battery. How can a 1400 phone with a giant battery not compete with the 11 Pro Max in battery life. Seriously.

    It may not be that bad Samsung says on 10% drop and the reviews are all over. one reviewer used her phone for 3 hours with navigation in the car. right off the bat most people who are going to do that will be charging it as they go so that makes no sense right there. you got to get the phone in hand and use it how you're going to use it and then you'll know

    Because the profit margin for Samsung is probably higher on the Ultra so Samsung only sends out the Ultra to tech reviewers, and the tech reviewers want to stay in Samsung's good graces so they'll fawn over the Ultra for weeks while practically ignoring the other models. Very few of them will actually review all three variants to give viewers an idea of which model will be best for their use. It'll be 90% THE BIGGEST MOST EXPENSIVE MODEL IS THE BEST!!!! Happens every year.
