After returning my S20 ultra due to poor battery life and overheating issues , I was waiting to see how Samsung handled the Note 20 U in the UK. Can’t believe they have made exactly the same mistakes. I will definitely be switching back to iOS for the first time in 4 years.
Switching back to an iPhone and iOS is a definite No for me.
After using Android which is open source I wouldn't be able to how Apple vigorously sandbox their iOS software and hardware !
I agree the phone's can be packed with features and functions some don't use or use rarely or when they remember it's there but on the flip side some will use them and at some point have possibly asked for them in feedback.
The key here is feedback which can be done via the Samsung Members App.
Thankfully the phone and android firmware is so customisable that lot's can be disabled or uninstalled to tweak the phone to match the owners wants and needs.

Samsung have had plenty of feedback over the S20 issues yet they have completely ignored it. You can’t defend the fact they have made exactly the same mistakes with both phones. Pitching a phone aimed at business/professionals but thinking we are dumb enough not to do our research before purchasing. Sticking with the same Exynos chip while giving other markets an improved chip with less over heating and better battery life. I absolutely loved my Note 9 best phone I ever owned , I have owned every Note phone including the Note 7 , and I still stuck with Samsung due to the software experience. Recently sold my Note 9 and have been using my old iPhone 7 Plus , updated it to iOS beta 5 and to be honest iOS has massively improved.
you also get the same iPhone chip /performance/battery life regardless of where in the world you buy it. Why stay loyal to a brand which is now treating me as a second class consumer but charging me the same if not more as their first class consumers based on where I live?
Nice to know I'm not the only one considering returning this and going back to ios. I usually like to swap between the two but have been with samsung and android now for the last 3 or 4 years and that's the longest I've gone without swapping.
I was torn before buying this whether to hold off and get the iPhone anyway...but my stupid impatient self got the better of me. But I just can't stand the battery issues I'm having and I don't feel like its been a worthy upgrade so far.
I'm scared of being stuck with a device thats not going to perform for my needs for another year.
So I'm seriously considering a return to avoid this. I usually hate to do that as well!
@jasonseery yeah I know what you mean. Its not good is it. The worst thing is, the camera shots always usually look decent til you post them anywhere and they get compressed and terrible quality. I've photos took on my last iPhone that look better on social media that some of the ones I've took on my samsungs.
The thing is, you're drawn in by the reviews and the specs that in theory should make it better. You look at an iPhone and see the 12mp cameras and think they surely can't be as good but somehow they're always better and they process images better and more consistently. I suppose that can be said about everything on iPhone....the battery size even...they all have smaller batteries than any Samsung I've had but they've all lasted longer throughout an average day and it proves its clearly just down to better optimisation on all fronts.
