Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G vs Galaxy Note 20 Comparison

What’s the difference between the Samsung Note 20 Ultra and the Samsung Note 20?

These are two quite different phones in terms of size and spec. Price plays an important role too. These devices are phablets rather than just smartphones and are quite different. While both are equipped with a range of great features you’d expect from Samsung it’s essential to decide what you truly want from your Samsung Note before you purchase the device. 

 

Samsung Note 20 Ultra: a high-performance phone at a great price

The Samsung Note 20 Ultra has a larger display at 6.9-inches compared to 6.7-inches for the Note 20 and is a bigger phablet. One dynamic difference is the screen refresh rate, at 120Hz for the Note 20 Ultra double that of the Note 20. This makes it ideal if you like a smooth and fast response rate, and can be especially essential if you’re planning on using the phablet for mobile gaming. Photos and videos on both phones benefit from 10 MP front cameras and amazing rear triple cameras. The only downside is the camera is raised, making it a little bulky, but this is the case with most devices these days as it allows for better quality photos and videos. On the aesthetics side, the latency of the S Pen on the Note 20 Ultra outweighs that of the Note 20. This translates to a real pen to paper feel when writing or drawing, with virtually no delay, which is a truly mesmerizing feature. Another feature only the Ultra has is Wireless Dex, allowing wireless casting to your TV.

 

Samsung Note 20: a cheaper version of the Note 20 Ultra

 The Note 20 is a cheaper option than the Ultra, and it's smaller. This is fine if you want a phablet that’s not too big, but if you want maximum screen size for working, gaming, or watching videos the Ultra 20 is the better choice. The rear of the Note 20 is made of plastic, giving it a slightly cheap feel, while the Ultra is made of drop-resistant Gorilla Glass Victus for a more quality finish. The Note 20 comes with 128 GB or 256 GB of storage space, but not the microSD card slot and the option of 512 GB the Ultra boasts, which is actually more than you’ll ever need. 

 

Although it’s the more expensive of the two, if you’re a creative person who draws, scribbles, signs lots of documents or just likes writing instead of typing than the Samsung Note 20 Ultra is most definitely for you. Add this benefit to the larger storage capacity and bigger size, and we think the Ultra is the best deal.
