Samsung Galaxy Note20: Design

The Samsung Galaxy Note20 is the latest affordable flagship Note series smartphone from the South Korean tech brand that has a few compromises when compared to the Galaxy Note20 Ultra. The Note20 comes with a plastic back panel but it does offer features like IP68 certification just like the Ultra. The Samsung Galaxy Note20 has a massive 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display, protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Victus. The panel offers FHD+ resolution with a 60Hz refresh rate, which is a bit of a let-down for a smartphone that costs over Rs. 75,000.

Samsung Galaxy Note20: Hardware Performance

The Samsung Galaxy Note20 is powered by the Exynos 990 SOC in India. Unlike the Note20 Ultra, the Note20 is a 4G only smartphone and it does offer other connectivity features like VoWiFi and VoLTE. Similarly, the smartphone does offer 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage with no microSD card slot for additional storage expansion. In terms of day-to-day performance, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 can handle any task that you throw at it and it also comes with a new and improved S-Pen with a response time of 26ms, which is much better than the S-Pen found on the Galaxy Note10 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy Note20: Camera Performance

The Samsung Galaxy Note20 has a triple camera setup at the back with a 64MP primary camera that supports native 8K video recording at 24fps and 4K video recording with up to 60fps. The device also has a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens and a 12MP telephoto lens which also supports high-resolution video recording. At the front, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 has a single 10MP selfie camera with support for 1080p video recording and the phone also offers face unlock as well. In almost every lighting condition, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 can take great-looking photos on both the main camera and the selfie camera.

Samsung Galaxy Note20: Price To Specs Ratio

The Samsung Galaxy Note20 retails for Rs. 77,999, which makes it an expensive smartphone. For the asking price, the device misses out on a few features, including 5G support and there is no microSD card slot or a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. The device comes in three color variants and all three phones do offer features like IP68 water and dust resistance rating and also support wireless and reverse wireless charging as well.

Samsung Galaxy Note20: Important Features/Highlights

The Samsung Galaxy Note20 comes with a 4,300 mAh battery and the device does support 25W fast charging via the USB Type-C port and it also supports wireless charging based on Qi standard. The smartphone will receive three major Android OS upgrades, including Android 11 OS with a custom skin on top. If you are getting the Samsung Galaxy Note20, then you will appreciate the number of improvements that the company has incorporated into the S-Pen, which makes it one of the best smartphones to take notes and even for the creative people.

Samsung Galaxy Note20: Verdict

Even though the Samsung Galaxy Note20 is an expensive smartphone, it is for those who want a powerful smartphone with additional tools like S-Pen. Though this is not the most powerful smartphone in the market, it offers a balanced set of features that a businessman or a working professional will appreciate.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
