Ratings by Category

Overall Camera:
4.1
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra's cameras are considered fair due to a good photo software experience that helps in taking better pictures and a good versatility score that indicates a range of useful camera features. However, the selfie quality is only good, which means while decent, it may not meet the highest expectations for selfie enthusiasts.
Photos:
4.1
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra takes fair photos primarily because it offers a fair selfie experience, which is very important to overall photo quality, and it has just a good software experience for photo taking, which also affects the quality of the pictures. The camera's performance in other aspects, such as low light performance and dynamic range, may be better, but these factors weigh less heavily on the selfie score.
Performance:
4.1
The Performance rating is based on GeekBench performance benchmark scores, combined with PerfectRec’s assessment of real-life typical use cases.
Battery Life:
3.5
The Battery Life rating is based on overall actual measured battery life during typical usage.
Videos:
3.0
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra's video output is considered fair because the software experience related to video recording is not as advanced or polished as that of other phones, and in low light conditions, the performance is also only fair, which means it doesn't handle darker environments as well as phones with better low light capabilities. Additionally, while the phone has good microphone quality, it may not compensate for the limitations in software and low light video performance.

Matt Swider | July 2021
"The Note 20 Ultra has it all – almost: a big screen, superb camera, high refresh rate, the S Pen, in-screen fingerprint sensor, super-fast specs, 5G speeds, a fancy curved display. This phone is built for power users who want everything but the fastest charging speeds."
