Samsung's Galaxy S20 family of smartphones launched earlier this year, and it didn't take long for the discounts to start piling up on the expensive flagship. The South Korean electronics giant raised eyebrows with the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra, as they were the most expensive members yet in the long-running series. Back in mid-April, Amazon discounted the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ by $200 (to $799 and $999 respectively), and offered a 15 percent cashback offer (for Amazon Prime Reward Visa cardholders) that brought the final out-of-pocket price to $680 and $849 respectively. However, no such discounts were available on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which retails for a whopping... Read more...
The Galaxy S20 Ultra is no doubt the overachiever of the Samsung's currently Galaxy S family, and it has the specs to match. In addition to its massive 6.9-inch 120Hz QHD+ display, the smartphone comes equipped with up to 16GB of RAM, 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage, and a 108MP primary image sensor with 100x Space Zoom. However, it's that last spec sheet stat that has caused the most issues for some users. Many have complained about autofocus problems when using 108MP sensor, which uses pixel beginning to combine light information from 9 pixels into a larger "virtual" pixel. While impressive on paper, the 108MP sensor also didn't include Samsung's well-regarded Dual Pixel autofocus system,... Read more...
The last thing you want to happen when dropping four figures on a smartphone is to see it fall apart. Unfortunately for some buyers of Samsung's flagship Galaxy S20 Ultra, that is sort of happening. It is not coming apart at the seams or anything like that, though oddly enough, some users report the glass covering on the rear camera bump developing cracks for no apparent. This is not happening to every Galaxy S20 Ultra owner, and perhaps only a very small percentage of them. However, there is a growing thread on Samsung's support forum for this very issue. The complaints first showed up around a month and a half ago, with new complaints added as recently as yesterday. Those affected say practically... Read more...
When the first reviews of the Galaxy S20 Ultra started being posted, there were a few complaints about autofocusing problems with the 108MP primary camera and zoom lens. Since its initial release, Samsung has rolled out a number of firmware updates meant to address the autofocus problems. However, even with its most recent updates, the problems still persist for many users. For those hoping that another round of software updates might solve all issues once and for all, we have some bad news. A moderator on Samsung’s Galaxy support forum clarified that some of the focusing issues are due to hardware limitations that can’t be rectified with software. The translated... Read more...
Users of the Samsung Galaxy S20 line of smartphones have received several firmware updates for the devices since they launched. The last update for the S20 family that was released globally had several issues in particular for Galaxy S20 Ultra owners. Among the issues was a green tint to the display with the high refresh rate mode enabled, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra saw slower superfast charging after the update was applied than when it launched. The issues have apparently led Samsung to pull the firmware off the market entirely. Galaxy S20 Ultra owners yet to download the update, which was firmware version G988xXXU1ATCT, will be unable to do so. The firmware update is reportedly no longer available... Read more...
There's no doubt that Samsung has a winner on its hands when it comes to specs and a laundry list of features with its Galaxy S20 family of flagships smartphones. However, many people have taken exception with pricing, which starts at $999 for the Galaxy S20 and tops out at $1,399 for the Galaxy S20 Ultra. But the discounts have already started racking up on the new smartphones, with Amazon selling the Galaxy S20 for $799 right now, which represents a $200 discount. However, the discounts are even greater if you have an Amazon Prime Store Card or Amazon Prime Reward Visa Card.  Instead of the usual 5% cashback that you would get with making a purchase at Amazon, you get a...

Samsung's Galaxy S line is the company's premier family of flagship Android phones. Over the years it has been underpinned by a recurring theme of bigger, faster, and prettier, with a ever-growing list of features. This year's Galaxy S20 family is no exception, starting out at a bold 6.2-inch format for the smallest Galaxy S20 5G device, 6.7-inches for the Galaxy S20+ 5G, and topping-out at the bodacious 6.9-inch Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G. We have the Galaxy S20 Ultra on tap for review here and it's Samsung's full boat, no compromises offering in the Galaxy S20 line-up. As its name suggests, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is a 5G-ready phone powered by Qualcomm's most powerful Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform,... Read more...
The Galaxy S20 Ultra is Samsung's newest flagship phone, and it is absolutely brimming with high-end features, with a premium price to match. Some of those features are highlighted in a recent teardown of the $1,399 phone, including the epic camera array—we've taken some photos with it (we're currently putting together a review) and it's awesome. The teardown analysis also underscores why replacing the built-in battery is not a viable option for most people. I won't go so far as to say consumers have essentially sold their souls in exchange for premium phones that eschew easy do-it-yourself (DIY) repairs for glass and metal bodies, and increasingly thinner and lighter profiles. But the... Read more...
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is a very expensive smartphone that currently sits at the top of the range for Samsung. As an expensive and high-end device packed with features, reviewers and consumers expect the device to operate flawlessly. Unfortunately for some reviewers of the Galaxy S20 Ultra, that wasn't the case. Some reviewers have had issues with the camera array on the smartphone. That camera array has a 108MP primary sensor, a 48MP periscope zoom lens, and a 12MP ultra-wide sensor. The array also fits in a 0.3MP ToF sensor. Early reviews indicated that there was an issue with the focusing of the camera that caused pulsing along with problems concerning macro focus on the camera. Samsung... Read more...
When Google launched its Stadia game streaming service, support on Android devices was incredibly limited. Somewhat predictably, the service was initially limited to Google's first-party Pixel smartphones -- devices that it has full control over with respect to both hardware and software. Now, Google is ready to expand support to a wide range of third-party Android phones from popular brands like Samsung, Razer and ASUS (but mostly Samsung). Here's the list of additional devices that will support Stadia starting on February 20th: Samsung Galaxy S8 Samsung Galaxy S8+ Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Samsung Galaxy Note8 Samsung Galaxy S9 Samsung Galaxy S9+ Samsung Galaxy Note9 Samsung Galaxy...

After months of speculation, leaks, and teases, Samsung is finally ready to get official with its next-generation family of flagship "Galaxy S" smartphones - and indeed they look pretty sweet. As predicted, the entire Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup is 5G-enabled from top to bottom, and consists of three new devices: the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra. When it comes to design, unlike last year's models, all three members of the family look similar from the front and the back -- although they obviously differ in size and you can tell the Ultra's camera is something special. In general, the Galaxy S20 series is comprised of a minimalistic design, and one that is very clear evolution... Read more...
We aren't far off from the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S20 family of devices at a Galaxy Unpacked event next month. Ahead of that unveiling event, we have a new leak that tips a lot of detail about the top-end device in the S20 family. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Ultra 5G is tipped to retain its microSD slot with support for up to 1TB cards. Some had feared that the device might lose the SD card slot, so this is great news. Samsung will also offer the smartphone with 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage. The big news is that the S20 Ultra will have both a 12GB of RAM and a whopping 16GB of RAM option. We already knew that the cameras would be a big deal on the Ultra, and now there are camera... Read more...
