Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Initial Review

Apart from the well-documented spec bump, there are a couple of new changes. The Bixby button has been removed, with the left side of the phone completely clean. The power and volume rocker has been moved to the right, with it keep the same position as the S10 Plus.

The headphone port has now been removed. The bottom mic has moved to replace that space, with the port and speaker staying in the same place.

The wide camera from the S10 Plus has been removed by the camera into the top right corner. The bump isn’t too noticeable and doesn’t seem to affect the phone on a desk.

Size-wise it feels taller, but not any wider than the S10 Plus. Holding the phone one-handed, my thumb can reach the top of the volume. This means when one-handed I can’t swipe down the notification area.

The 120htz display makes for smooth animations and an overall slick user interface. I tend to flick the screen back to WQHD when on things like YouTube or watching a film. Ideally, it’d be good to get an app, which would switch this for me, when I switch apps. This is been worked on over at XDA.

Below are some images I have taken with the camera. The pigeon was done using the 100x zoom. The London photo was taken around 8pm on a bridge, using the night time feature. Also please let us know if there is anything you want us to check on the S20 Ultra for you, and we can let you know.
