The battery drains fast when screen gets bigger and 5G is being used. S20 and S20 Plus should be better in this aspect because of a smaller screen, importantly, it is also value for money. The main drawback is that it is not future-proof and does not have binocular zoom. Not sure whether the reviews so far are done using 5G, if not, then the battery on the ultra is really bad I think. Also, as US uses a different 5G, the battery consumption could be different? A lot of questions on the 5G aspect, so much more on its benefits in SG, given that it is still not launched and how long it would take for the coverage to reach a level that we can really reap the benefits. Heard the data consumption is huge as compared to 4G.

If it's already quite bad, one can only imagine how much worse it will be for our Exynos sets. Truly clusterfarked.

5g and 120mhz are battery killers. good thing is we don't have 5g yet and have the option to choose frame rate.

Can you imagine if Samsung Malaysia is giving those free gifts, how much of a suckers we have to be getting just the Buds+? Quite clear Samsung Singapore is out to maximise chopping carrots. Absolutely no thought process have gone in to marketing this phone here. At least Samsung Malaysia had the sense to put in the 128gb microsd card as it is clear 128gb ROM is absolutely not enough with 8k recording. The fact Note 10+ is gaining traction is clear the internal storage space is a deal breaker with the pricing and 5hitty pre-order gifts.

S20U review is out
Battery life is overhyped even for its 60hz refresh rate
It is important to state clearly what version the review is for.

The gsmarena review is for the exynos version. It basically already stated what we had assumed and knew about the cons for the exynos version.

The review is not for the snapdragon version which is a different beast.

True, exynos chip is well known to drain batt faster, runs warmer. Snapdragon version is more optimized.

There are many factors to consider as well. Since SG no 5G, does disabling 5G network in settings improve battery life? And also depends on app usage as well. Regarding the 120hz refresh rate, they will push an update to allow variable refresh rate. So that matters as well

Long story short. S20 ultra and S20s, overall, its not worth.

Samsung innovation is down.

Cut short story

Note 10 and Note10+ is the last Samsung phones to be shown worthwhile

Agreed. I don't game on my phone though battery life is abit underwhelming for me. But for the price I can't complain especially when I'm getting 12gb/256gb RAM.

I will just wait for price drop. I remember for s10 and s9 after a few months the Telco will drop price by $200?

Guys don't criticise Samsung Singapore and Exynos. They are the "best" in the market. You should appreciate that Samsung is even bringing in this phone to Singapore. Samsung don't owe you anything. I said Exynos suck and tio whacked jiatlat jiatlat as childish and immature.

I am switching over to Android from iPhone. Have been using Apple Pay all along, may I know if there are any benefits using Samsung Pay, example for Public Transport. Been using it for bus and train, does it work as well for Samsung Pay, or I have to use Google Pay app. Excited!
You get samsung points which can be redeemed for stuff / discounts.

S20 and S20+ have smaller screen but also smaller battery. Either way it balance out.

Take your argument out side this thread. Start a new thread.

No you got whacked because you keep repeating yourself like a broken tape recorder. We know Exynos suck and no one is contesting otherwise. So stop your repetition crap and get a life.
athenodorus and Momentumm like this.
