Buds only for plus and ultra.

Hello all, just wondering if I am getting this as a no-contract phone for the S20.

Do you think it's cheaper to get it on Lazada with a Citibank card ($1298-$100 and gift earbud) or buy it from outside shop (like mobile square, redwhitemobile usually even less than $1298) a few weeks after launch? Which one will be cheaper then?

Samsung phone prices dropped in value rapidly after a few months.

Since Samsung Singapore are overcharging Singaporeans, wait till price drop ba.
Prob wait 2 to 3 months before buying? Price will be lower.. and prob updates are in.

Fake Zoom, Samsung! Neither Galaxy S20 nor S20+ feature real Telephoto or Zoom Cameras

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Fake-Z....453934.0.html
Interesting finding. I think because Samsung wants to market 8K video recording on all 3 models so they didn't have a choice. Needed at least one high resolution camera but since they still want to keep the telephoto lens feature the only way was to go with hybrid optic zoom. I guess like what the article says the telephoto lens is not good enough to replace the wide angle lens so Samsung still retained it.

probably if want clearer quality need use Samsung in app camera Instagram mode
Which would the best quality to post?
1) Shoot with default camera app then upload to Instagram
2) Shoot with Instagram mode on default camera app
3) Shoot with Instagram app

Played with ultra again on wifi network, battery remains strong for at least 15mins, despite location/BT/Wifi/sync/NFC/auto rotate on
Its the battery stamina attracts me, not the frame thickness

And I realized that there's no developer options after I tapped 7x on the build number and despite the acknowledgement message

Not as blur as Samsung. And I dont think the 100x zoom is accurate as advertised.

It appears that hws 50x zoom can take similar/further shots and less blurish. Assuming both are using tripod.

Those display sets are very different from actual market sets. They run off a different and special FW and should no way be used to judge sets sold to public.

You can see the Model of the display devices labeled differently in about device as well.
