Samsung note20 evaluation: is this pen the biggest highlight?

On August 13, Samsung’s new generation 5g flagship Galaxy note20 series was officially released in China, which means that the competition among the major manufacturers in the second half of 2020 will officially kick off. < p > < p > of course, paper parameters can not completely judge the quality of a mobile phone, but whether the product experience is good or not is the key. Galaxy note20 series seems to want to tell us that in this era of mobile phone hardware homogenization, Samsung wants to be brilliant in product details, so as to bring users a better experience. < / P > < p > when it comes to Samsung Galaxy Note Series, the first thing I think of is s pen. Since the first generation of s pen was released, it has opened a new era of interactive experience. With the development of the technology, s pen’s ability is also improving, from notes and graffiti to 4096 level pressure sense and floating window instruction, and then to screen writing and empty gesture operation. < / P > < p > in this galaxy note20 series, the s pen experience has been upgraded to further optimize the fluency of writing, and there is almost no delay in using it. It is worth mentioning that with the AI capabilities of galaxy note20 series, s pen can further shorten the feedback time between the nib and the system software by predicting the user’s stroke trajectory. In order to simulate a real stroke, you will feel a certain damping and make a “rustle” sound whenever the pen tip touches the screen. < / P > < p > there are many scenarios for taking notes with s pen. For example, when you are communicating with customers, you need to temporarily record some key contents. At this time, you just need to pull out the s pen from the fuselage to open the message screen quick write function and start recording. Of course, you can also convert handwritten notes into an editable document, which can be quickly shared after exported to PPT or word. < / P > < p > the upgraded s pen adds voice tag function, which allows users to take notes while recording. For example, when you need to take notes in class, you can use s pen to make handwritten notes and record the courseware content synchronously. In this way, learning efficiency can be greatly improved. < / P > < p > in addition, the buttons on the s pen can directly call out the phone’s native camera, which is similar to the remote control of the shutter in a professional camera. If you need to take a family photo or take a self portrait with a friend, just fix the phone, find the angle, and click the button on the s pen. < / P > < p > before that, Samsung has added the hanging gesture function in the s pen since the generation of Galaxy note 9. Now, this function has been expanded on the galaxy note20 series. Five new gestures are added to s pen. Users can use them to realize the functions of return, recent use and screen capture editing. Not only that, s pen can also control the media app, such as pause / play music or video, slide up gesture to increase volume, slide right gesture to cut song, etc., thus enhancing the interactive experience. < / P > < p > in general, s pen can bring different interactive experience to users. Although the hanging gesture is convenient, it is not suitable for public use, because it will be very strange to use the s pen towards the mobile phone. What’s more, it is unnecessary to use a stylus for the operation that can be completed by moving a finger. Therefore, this function is only suitable for use in certain places. < / P > < p > both notes and voice tags can improve work efficiency. Through practical experience, when s pen turns on the note taking function for writing, the response time between the pen tip and the screen is very fast, the delay is negligible, and there is no disconnection or touch break. Voice tag is integrated into notes to facilitate users to quickly open this function without switching recording app. < / P > < p > our Samsung is a galaxy note20 with ice Mint color. Its rear position adopts three camera scheme: 12 megapixel main camera + 12 million pixel wide angle + 64 million pixel long focus lens, and the front is 10 million pixel single shot. < / P > < p > the camera of galaxy note20 continues Samsung’s consistent color matching style. No matter which camera it is, the sample picture will be more vivid. Compared with the other two cameras, the resolution power of the 64 megapixel telephoto lens is significantly improved. In combination with HDR mode, higher dynamic range photos can be taken. The imaging system of galaxy note20 provides 7 focal segments, which are 0.5x, 1X, 2x, 4x, 10x, 20x, 30x. The following is a sample shot with 0.5 x focal length. The system calls a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle lens. You can see that the range of view is quite wide, which is suitable for taking some landscape photos. < p > < p > the color restoration of the sample taken at 2x focal length is different from the reality, for example, the color of the tree on the left is inconsistent with that of the other two trees. < / P > < p > the following two photos are taken with 4x and 10x focal length respectively. Compared with the two photos, the resolution of the latter decreases significantly and many details are lost. < p > < p > in the indoor environment, the samples taken by the 64 million pixel long focus lens appear to be over exposed to the background. However, turning off the automatic HDR mode solves the problem. < / P > < p > even in a room with not enough light, the samples taken by the default camera mode of galaxy note20 are still very pure, with no noise and smear marks. < / P > < p > in the evening, the resolution of the sample taken by the default camera is significantly lower than that in the daytime, and the color is a little red, the details of the leaves are lost, and the right wall has a strong sense of daubing. < / P > < p > the following two samples are respectively not on / on night view mode. It can be seen that, thanks to AI algorithm, the brightness of the second sample is obviously improved, and the lawn and trees that could not be seen clearly become clear instantly, but the highlight of street lamps can not be suppressed. < / P > < p > in an environment where the light source is not so complex, the night scene mode of galaxy note20 controls the highlight properly, and the words on the light plate are clearly visible. < / P > < p > in a light rich environment, the 64 million telephoto lens can also take good photos, and the overall look will be closer to reality. In terms of performance, Galaxy note20 is equipped with snapdragon 865 plus processor and supports 5g. The snapdragon 865 plus is the strongest flagship processor of this year for Qualcomm. If you don’t believe it, let’s run a point. < / P > < p > of course, the theoretical score can not fully reflect the performance of this mobile phone, and it needs to run several games to know, because if the cooling of a mobile phone is not done well, resulting in CPU frequency reduction, the game will be stuck and frame dropping. < / P > < p > then let’s take two national hand games to test. First of all, all settings are full, and the game screen is basically stable at 60 FPS. < / P > < p > in terms of endurance, the galaxy note20 is equipped with 4300mah battery and supports 25W fast charging. In order to simulate the real scene, we turn on WiFi, NFC, Bluetooth, 5g, positioning and automatic brightness adjustment. Now it’s time for endurance testing.

tiktok 1 hours, power consumption decreased from 100% to 90%, and power consumption was 10%; brush micro-blog for 1 hours, power consumption reduced from 90% to 82%, electricity consumption was 8%; playing 1 hours game, electricity dropped from 82% to 61%, electricity consumption was 61%; watching 1080P Hours movie, power consumption dropped from 0 to 10, and power consumption was reduced. < / P > < p > after 4 hours of intensive use, the final remaining charge of galaxy note20 is 54%. That is to say, the basic problem of using this mobile phone for one day is not big. < / P > < p > unlike the galaxy note10, the galaxy note20 has chosen a color with lower saturation to match with the minimalist design style, giving a sense of advanced. It is a pity that its screen does not support high refresh rate and 2K resolution, but it is undeniable that it is a high-quality screen, even without those functions, the visual experience is still good. < p > < p > 161.6 mm × 75.2 × 8.3, plus the weight of 192g, even if you hold it with one hand for a long time, you won’t feel your hand falling. The transition between the metal frame and the back plate is well handled. It feels smooth and won’t cut hands. < / P > < p > the back cover adopts Ag sanding process and skin like material, which has strong fingerprint resistance, but does not prevent oil stains. The rear lens module in the upper left corner uses a circular matrix design. The three cameras are arranged vertically and longitudinally. The surface of the module is treated with mirror surface. Although it is very beautiful, it has poor antifouling ability and is easy to stain fingerprints. < / P > < p > compared with other Android flagship, the hardware of galaxy note20 is not outstanding, but s pen is an absolute bonus. After all, there are fewer and fewer smartphones equipped with stylus. The second is a stylus, Samsung can also play so many tricks, this is also an innovation, but also can reflect the differences in hardware. < / P > < p > in addition, today’s flagship mobile phones are piling up crazily in terms of hardware, which is a good thing for consumers, but it has sacrificed the weight of the whole machine. Most models are around 200g. Samsung has found a balance point. Without loss of performance, the weight of galaxy note20 is controlled at 192g. What competitive products have achieved such details?
