Hey there!

I upgraded from my Galaxy S20 5G to a Note20 Ultra 5G 2 days ago, and so far I'm noticing loads of improvements on my Note20, even though the guts are shared with the S20. 

I'm loving the gorgeous 6.9" display, and I've noticed better battery life due to the adaptive refresh rate.

I'm also loving the S-Pen, I'm using it to help me chill out, and it's enabling me to make drawings and stuff to send to my girlfriend to cheer her up too 😊.

Finally, I've noticed a big improvement over the camera on my S20. I've attached a photo of my dog I took in pretty low light. I used an extra light, but I'm still super impressed - this camera easily beats my Canon EOS4000D (unless I want to edit in Photoshop).

There's a few downsides, as always:
  • The phone's bigger, so it's a bit more difficult to hold, but I'll get used to it
  • It's harder to use the phone one-handed (also because it's bigger, but hey, I normally use 2 hands anyway 😉)
But honestly, I love the phone, and it was a small upgrade, but worth it! This'll be my phone for the next few years 😄

Message for Samsung - please keep the Note line!!

@CrazyTom2k2  Glad you are happy with the upgrade and the Camera definitely seems superior from your description.   However  I do not see the photo.    As far as the Note line goes the speculation  suggests  the Note series may not have a long term future and of course S Pen can now be used with the S21 Ultra.  Some articles though have suggested there could be  another Galaxy Note in the pipeline.     This report is a bit more positive  https://www.theverge.com/2020/12/16/22177972/galaxy-note-21-still-happening-yonhap

glad you like your note, I have an s20 5G and I love it and the size is perfect, the note is too big and pricey for me, same with s21 ultra, s21 not really an upgrade so will have to sit tight and see what the s22 brings.
