Samsung note20 ultra in depth evaluation: there are regrets, but still organic imperial flavor

[pconline professional evaluation] after about a week of use, we are now bringing you in-depth experience of Samsung Galaxy note20 Ultra.

previous hands-on experience introduced a lot of external things about Samsung Galaxy note20 Ultra. Today, let’s talk about its “connotation”.

before we start, we need to explain a few questions first, because we can see that many people are discussing in the comments section of the article.

1. Although I know that everyone has a lot of opinions about Galaxy note20, but note20 ultra is a solid glass body, and it is the world’s first batch of Corning’s seventh generation gorilla glass mobile phone, so don’t be confused.

3. The maximum charging power supported by Galaxy note20 ultra is 25W. Yes, even if you pay for an extra charger, the maximum is 25W.

4. The stereo dual speakers of galaxy note20 ultra have not been cut off, and the micro slot receiver is still the speaker.

This screen of Samsung Galaxy note ultra has applied ltpo technology and “adaptive refresh rate” technology for the first time. It can switch the refresh rate according to different scenarios and improve power consumption. For example, the screen refresh rate is 120Hz when playing games, 60Hz when watching movies, 30Hz when viewing email or other regular text, photos, social media static pictures, or even as low as 10Hz.

it happens that displaymate also released the evaluation report on this screen today, giving the evaluation of “excellent a +” as usual, and the praise for it has overflowed between the lines.

in addition, the peak brightness of galaxy note20 ultra reaches an amazing 1609 nit, which is the highest in smart phones at present. Even in the hot sun, you don’t have to worry about not being able to see the screen clearly. In addition, the proportion of harmful blue light to human eyes is reduced by 13%, reaching the lowest in the industry, which can effectively reduce the fatigue feeling of long-term use.

in terms of screen share, Samsung Galaxy note20 ultra has made a further improvement, and its intuitive feeling is that the frame has narrowed again. Data from the well-known foreign media @ I ice universe show that the top border width of note20 ultra is 1.49mm, the width of chin is 2.53mm, and the width of side border is 1.30mm; in addition, the reduction of hole area makes up 92% of the overall screen.

Finally, I would like to add that the galaxy note20 ultra is still a micro slit earphone, and its area is still larger. The stereo dual speakers live well, so don’t be taken with rhythm.

that’s all about the galaxy note20 ultra screen. This is the most powerful smartphone screen at present, and there is no one. It is said that apple, which has always been rich, has not been able to buy the same screen in Samsung display. This shows Samsung’s high expectations for note20 Ultra.

Unlike in previous years, Samsung Galaxy note20 ultra uses the latest snapdragon 865 plus processor. Although the overall improvement of this processor is not a leap forward, it has made progress in system fluency and performance.

with the same routine as last year’s snapdragon 855 / 855 plus, there is no big change in the specifications of the high-tech snapdragon 865 / 865 plus. It only improves the maximum frequency of CPU and GPU, which can be regarded as the official grey version.

another obvious change is that galaxy note20 ultra removes the TOF lens introduced since Galaxy S105G, and adds a laser focusing sensor instead. I think we all know the purpose of this.

with the addition of laser focusing sensor, Galaxy note20 ultra has finally bid farewell to the “old problem” of S20 ultra focusing and pulling bellows, and returns to the previous experience of “where to play”. I believe that the problem of code scanning is no longer the problem.

in the photo session, we joined a famous “super large cup” to compete with Galaxy note20 ultra, Huawei P40 PRO +.

at present, the flagship mobile phone will have no big problem in daytime imaging. But that’s how we are. And it turns out that it’s quite necessary for us to be honest.

compared with the firmware of the first engineering system, the galaxy note20 ultra after updating the system has fixed the problem of excessive sharpening. The blue sky and white clouds look much more natural, and the HDR effect is also good. However, Huawei P40 PRO + has the problem of excessive sharpening, and there is a little lack of dark details. Moreover, after adding the color temperature sensor, the phenomenon of redness has not been eliminated.

as for ultra wide angle comparison, the wide-angle range of Huawei P40 PRO + with dual main camera is better than none, while Galaxy note20 ultra continues to perform well. In terms of ultra wide angle, Samsung’s adjustment level is still very high.

to the favorite zoom link. Samsung Galaxy note20 ultra has replaced the periscope long focus lens, and supports 5x optical zoom and 10x hybrid zoom. The maximum zoom is reduced from 100x digital zoom to 50x. However, as mentioned in last week’s hands-on experience, there are very few scenes that need to be used in daily life, so there is no need to worry about the size of this number.

like S20 ultra, the zoom experience of note20 ultra is also relatively smooth, and there is no obvious stuck feeling from 0.5 times to 50 times.

it is worth mentioning that note20 ultra supports zooming in 100 million pixel mode, up to 6 times zoom, while the previous S20 ultra does not.

in this group of backlight samples, the performance of the two is equal, but the aperture of P40 PRO + telephoto lens is f4.4, and it is not ryyb, while the aperture of note20 ultra telephoto lens is f3.0, so the visibility of “Marriott” of note20 ultra is higher. This group of samples has been taken several times, all of which are the same result, so please don’t raise the bar.

in the case of sufficient light conditions, the 10x Optical Zoom of P40 PRO + is not a joke to you. The details are clearer, especially the edge part.

However, the galaxy note20 ultra has a more obvious advantage at 5x focus, because this time it is optical zoom, while P40 PRO + uses XD fusion technology to synthesize multiple frames.

summary: in terms of daytime zoom, both have advantages in different focus segments. If you are confused about how to choose between the two flagship, it is recommended to combine your daily photo taking habits.

there is little difference between the 5-fold zoom samples in the normal mode, which can be regarded as the same level. So we turn on the night view mode of both, and both support zooming in the night view mode.

in the night view mode, the overall brightness of galaxy note20 ultra is higher, at the cost of more obvious noise; P40 PRO + picture brightness is slightly dark, but the purity is relatively high.

at 10x zoom, it is another scene: the visibility of galaxy note20 ultra image is still higher, most windows can still be seen, and the visibility of P40 PRO + is very low.

it’s the night scene match. Samsung Galaxy note20 ultra and Huawei P40 PRO + launched the competition with a new sensor each.

the brightness of the two samples in automatic mode is basically the same, but the highlight suppression of P40 PRO + is slightly better. Samsung still doesn’t care much about the highlight suppression in automatic mode, which is more like keeping the principle of “shooting first, then shooting well”.

obviously, Samsung likes to leave the task of high light suppression to night view mode. Galaxy note20 ultra suppresses the “Furla” and lower right corner lights significantly better than P40 PRO +, and the sky purity is better, while P40 PRO + appears red phenomenon.

in terms of super wide-angle night scene under super night scene mode, both performances are similar. Probably due to the influence of the building lighting, the two samples show different colors.

seeing this group of samples, we can only say that Samsung still has its own unique views on night scene mode: professional things should be left to professional mode, and automatic mode should restore the real situation. In the night view mode, the galaxy note20 ultra is just like turning on the lights. It is suggested to change its name to “day mode”.

Huawei P40 PRO + triggers the automatic night scene mode in this scene, and the brightness improvement is also very limited after the manual super night scene mode is turned on. At present, the imaging style of P40 PRO + automatic night scene mode and manual night scene mode is more and more similar, and even the automatic night scene mode is better than the manual night scene mode.

with the addition of “Ai one button multi shot” in Galaxy S20 series, the maximum recording time on note20 ultra has been increased to 15 seconds, and the recording time can be adjusted in the camera interface without opening the setting menu for setting.

the biggest highlight of note20 ultra in terms of video is the addition of professional video mode. After entering this mode, users can adjust the exposure time, ISO, contrast, focusing mode and zoom of the video recording screen in real time, just like in the professional mode of taking pictures.

in addition, unlike the first generation 8K video recording on S20 ultra, the 8K video recording on note20 ultra can be zoomed in either 21:9 or 16:9 mode, with a maximum of 6x zoom, which greatly increases the usability.

Yes, this generation has joined the 21:9 film mode. Whether 1080p, 4K or 8K, they all support 21:9 ratio recording.

in addition, Galaxy note20 ultra supports directional recording. You can specify separate front and rear microphones, or select omnidirectional microphones. If you happen to have a galaxy budds series of headphones, you can also use the headphones for radio after connecting.

night scene video is the time when professional video mode shows its talents. By adjusting various parameters, we can get bright and smooth pictures, and even at night, we can create wonderful works.

by the way, Galaxy note20 ultra supports 1080p and 4K 120 frame video recording. This is very in line with Samsung’s style: since users say there is no 120 frame source, let’s create 120 frame source by yourself.

the s-pen of this generation does not have much functional improvement. It can even be blind inserted with the previous generation of galaxy note10 + s pen, so it inherits all the previous functions and will not be introduced here.

so, the biggest improvement is that its input delay is only 9ms. With AI prediction technology, the pen tip can write on the screen as smoothly as the pen writes on paper. As you can see from the slow motion, the delay is really very small, and the whole process is very smooth.

Samsung Galaxy note20 ultra still maintains the Buddhist mentality in charging. It supports up to 25W fast charging and boasts that it can charge 50% of the power in 30 minutes.

according to the actual measurement, the galaxy note20 ultra charged 42% of the power in 30 minutes from 30% of the power, basically in line with the publicity; it is expected that the full charge will take about 1.5 hours, showing a regular performance.

but what surprised us most was its endurance level. After a 3-hour battery life test as shown in the figure, the galaxy note20 ultra still has 41% of its battery power, which includes 30 minutes of 120 frames of peace elite and 30 minutes of 120 frames of ACE fighters. The 4500mAh battery has such a good endurance level, and its screen reaches 6.9 inches. This also confirms the screen test conclusion given by displaymate that this screen does have a better energy efficiency level.
