    Everybody on 5g!!! Come one guys the technology is not yet accurate, is not tested full capacity and the test were made give low results not even up to 500mb constantly !!! My opinion stick to s10,10plus,note10. Keep the money for holidays and wait another 1-2 years before invest over 1000£ in a phone !!! When 5g actually start working i mean really working then you will realise that what is on the phone now is just commercial and advertise . Thanks.

    Apple doesn't really seem that bad now,does it? 999$ starting price,what were they thinking


    Is Huawei p30 Pro better in regards to camera specs?

    Sir please explain how the 12 Mega pixels cameras on S20 and S20 +are superior to the 64 Mega Pixels camera on Samsung A71? Is it a downgrade or an upgrade? I am unable to understand.. 😃

    Who else is skipping s20 and waiting for note 20? It will probably be s20 with a pen.

  • MeesNaguMuiste

    Does S20 suffers PWM screen flicker issue as previous generations?

    I don't see how this is better than the OnePlus 7 Pro. I'd much rather have that compared to this.

    I got the s10+ instead of another high spec phone soley because it has a 3.5mm aux audio jack- I shall wait until until samsung finally comes around and they release another one.. in like.. 4 years

    If the next iPhone had specs like these, tech reviewers would be salivating. But since its an S20, all you can say is, "it's a lot of specs"..

    I don’t think these phones or any phones for the matter should cost more than $1000..

    Much as I love these phones the prices are just disgustingly high. Would never pay anymore than £700 myself. Even though I love a great camera set up.

    They have and know the technology but they don't use it ?I think it's a universal expression. Anyway the industry is like any other animal they want to take advantage not necessarily be used like a beach. Be used or get a beach. 😆

    Interested in the S20+ but in the UK only the 128GB version is available for pre-order. If I’m spending that much on a phone I want 512GB. It made me consider the cheaper S10+ 512GB but I hate the larger selfie cam cut out.

    Man the background music is obnoxiously loud in this video…

    I'm rocking a note 8 and honestly think the ultra would be a great step up but I know my note is fine. I dont want for anything. Just got to appreciate what you have and understand that you dont need the current phone every year.

    Still working with my horrible Note 10 battery. Finish an 8 hr work day and end with 25% you are eating dinner while the phone is charging.

      much different.

  • xavierrobinson55

    Ever since you mentioned that it doesn't have an audio Jack I am no longer excited for this phone.

    • xavierrobinson55

      @niduoe stre I still have a Galaxy s8. I don't need to upgrade, I just thought maybe I should because the phone looks cool.

    • niduoe stre

      I want the ultra but ima wait a bit till it gets a lil cheaper. I feel like getting the s20 and s20+ is a waste of money cause I already have the S10+ and I don't feel like it will be that

  • Robert Adams

    A high amount of Ram and a 108MP camera and 100X Zoom feature that's a horrible gimmick isn't " Alot" of specs. 3 is only a few.

      calling out iphone for being too expensive just seems shallow now since they cost just as much, if not less than the samsung phones now
