Meet Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. With advanced 8K Video Snap and 5G connectivity, the way you share and capture your everyday life is never going to be the same again. Shots that you never even thought existed are suddenly at your fingertips just a moment before you snap them. Let’s take a closer look at this new device and what it can do for you.
Samsung’s first foray into a high-powered fully-featured camera came with the original Galaxy S. The phone sported a one-of-a-kind multi-tasking user interface that hinged on a single button to flip through your phone’s interface. This simple and easy-to-use home button would open the phone’s camera, shoot a picture or video, and then allow you to flip it right back for another view. This meant you could quickly become an expert in taking pictures, even if you hadn’t ever held a digital camera before. The problem was, though, that you had to be right there in front of the lens to get that perfect shot. A far cry from professional photography, this product ultimately flopped in the market and was quickly buried by more technologically advanced smartphones and devices. The manufacturer, however, wasn’t deterred and has since launched the Galaxy S20 Ultra to bring it to the mainstream once again.
Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra sports a gorgeous and vibrant screen. It features a higher density screen which, as a result, uses less power when you utilize the camera. To take just one picture, for example, the phone uses just half a watt of power. If you shoot several images at different locations, the effect is stunning as each image appears to get blown out or enlarged. The result is an amazingly clear and crisp picture that is both lighter and better looking than many high-end smartphones.
Because of the incredible clarity of the images the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra produces, many people who use smartphones and other handheld devices are finding themselves taking more photos. Taking photos has never been so much fun, and with devices like the Galaxy S20 and the iPhone 6s, it’s becoming a whole new way to communicate. With so many people posting their vacation pictures on social media sites, many people are checking in on vacation spots through their smartphones first before heading out. With the ability to take a photo and immediately share it with friends, the possibilities for sharing pictures have never been so exciting.
In terms of design, there isn’t much to see the difference between the iPhone and the HTC Evo Shift. While the former’s looks are more elegant and upscale, the Google Pixel and Note 10’s look and feel are more casual. That doesn’t mean that the two smartphones are bad products. Both have excellent touchscreens, large screens, and a fast, responsive screen. The one feature that they do share is the ability to take advantage of professional photography features like panoramic images. This is only available on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, but the phone still manages to make professional pictures look nice.
The one weakness the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has is the fact that it’s not as fast as some of the other handsets on the market. It definitely has more storage space though, which is always a nice bonus. Since it’s priced the same as the iPhone and Plus models, you can expect the Galaxy S20 Ultra to sell like hotcakes.
One of the biggest complaints about this device is its lack of battery life. The battery only lasts an hour and a half, which is really bad. The problem is that it does use the device’s built-in SIM card to power the camera. If you haven’t learned by now, don’t rely on the built-in card, because it’s not meant to be a substitute for a cell phone. You want something that keeps going. Fortunately, the Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with a spare battery in the box, which is great.
The charging system on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is great, but you can expect it to last you just a few hours if you’re not careful. I managed to get over five hours of usage out of my device, but it still was short of the ten-hour life I got from my iPhone. With a full day of solid use, the S20 lasted a whole week, which is great by Samsung standards. Even though the charging system isn’t the best, it did what I expected and that’s what matters.
