I can understand why.I traded my Note 9 for A Note 20 at Samsung and got $550 trade in. I paid $470 for A Note 20 and the new Bud Lives for $470 including tax. I went to Costco and saw the new Note 20 and I actually liked the back. I'll be using a car so who cares if it is plastic.
That's funny, I went to "My AT&T" then to my phone, which of course was way past "Ready for Upgrade" and neither Note 20 was even shown as an upgrade choice. I said "Alrighty then!" I went straight to Samsung and got it from them, on AT&T! Still got my $550 tradein, my $150 Credit (which I used for Galaxy Buds Live)! Whatever...I already preordered the Note 20 Ultra. AT&Ts preorder offer was just too good to pass up.
I will miss the iris scanner, led notification, and rear fps but I need a phone with all day battery life. The camera is a plus too
A thousand quid for a plastic phone?
No Samsung. Just no!
Samsung announced both the Note 20, and its big brother, Note 20 Ultra today.
While the Ultra looks likely to once again end the year at the top, or at least fairly close to the top of the flagship food chain, (thus justifying at least some of that hefty price tag attached), the same cannot be said of the somewhat confusing Note 20. It falls short in my humble opinion, ending up as more footnote than Note...
My big gripe is, how do you justify a thousand dollars for a plastic phone in 2020. Struck me how much of a good deal the Note 9 was, or is in comparison. Especially when speaking in terms of premium finish and storage options, (storage on the Note 20 is non-expandable).
This is the generation of Note I'll be looking to upgrade to. To be able to afford the Note 20 Ultra, I might well have to resort to selling a kidney or two. Hey, you make peace with your inner consumerism coupled as it is with a love for smartphones, and learn to get on with it. However the Note 20? Meh!
Basically wondering if anyone else rocking the Note 9 will be making the jump over the next year or so, and which of the latest additions to the Note family will you be looking to embrace?
