The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 was released right before its “big brother,” the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 UItra. While specs remain the same for the most part, there are some differences, including:
- A smaller 6.7-inch display
- No 120Hz refresh rate support
- ‘Glasstic’ backplate
- No MicroSD expansion option
- 64MP rear-facing camera
- 8GB of RAM
- 4,300mAh battery
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a more robust frame and larger size, but the standard Note 20 has its merits. Performance is near identical, the display is outstanding in terms of color and clarity, and the design is top-notch as always.
For someone who isn’t into all the bells and whistles -- or the big price tag -- that comes with the higher Ultra version, the standard Note 20 has everything that makes a Note phone good and is also less expensive.
