Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G Review

Design & Display

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is made of glass and aluminum and comes in just two colors: Cosmic Gray and Cosmic Black. Just like its predecessors, the S20 Ultra 5G exudes quality and craftsmanship. The front glass is slightly less curved along the side edges than last year’s S10, but the rear glass has a steeper curve to it. The smartphone features Gorilla Glass 6 panels which are separated by a metal frame that’s thick on the bottom and top, and thin down the sides.

The Samsung S20 Ultra features an ultra- amazing screen with a 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O screen with multiple resolution and refresh rate options. Out of the box, it’s set to Full HD+, or 2400 x 1080 pixels. This can be improved to Quad HD+, or 3200 x 1440 pixels, or downgraded to HD+ at 1600 x 720 pixels. The screen is HDR10+ certified, which means the right content will deliver incredible dynamic range

The Cameras

The S20 Ultra’s 108-megapixel camera is its most enticing feature. It promises wildly detailed photographs with bright color that you can crop for maximum detail. In automatic mode, photos resolve to 12-megapixel shots. Some of the features Samsung boasts about include 100x zoom and 8K video capture. There are some new camera modes available to the Samsung Galaxy S20 family, including Single Take, Night Mode, Night Hyperlapse, and more.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra also features the most powerful selfie camera on a Galaxy phone yet. The 40MP front camera gives you pro-grade tech so selfies come out detailed. The front camera also shifts to 10MP with larger pixels for crisp low light selfies. This should be great news for selfie lovers!

Hardware and Software

The S20 Ultra 5G is one of the first phones to ship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor on board. The Global version of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G features an Octa-core Exynos 990 processor and the Mali-G77 MP11 GPU, while USA variants will feature an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and the Adreno 650 GPU. Both Global and US versions of the smartphone feature either 12GB or 16GB of RAM, which is more than enough for any kind of multitasking. There’s also an option of either 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage.

The S2O Ultra comes with a non-removable 5,000mAh battery. With the screen on its default mode, all-day longevity is expected from the massive 5,000mAh battery which is the biggest in the S20 Series.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra supports 45W wired fast charging and 25W wireless charging. However, only a 25W charger comes in the box. The smartphone is compatible with an optional 45W charger and 15W wireless charger.

The smartphone is powered by Android 10 operating system and runs on Samsung’s One UI 2.1 software which is the best version of Samsung’s software.


The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G features a USB Type C (USB 3.2) port, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC. The internet connectivity is capped at 5G, as the Samsung Galaxy S20 ultra 5G has 5G support.
