Yes, it doesn’t bomb me, or Why is the Galaxy Note 20 so garbage

Every Samsung presentation reminds me of a challenge. In my opinion, Koreans simply set themselves the goal of surpassing competitors in the senselessness of innovations and the high cost of new smartphones. And how else to explain the fact that from year to year they release devices with incredible amounts of RAM, which will never be useful to them, because their support will end long before software with such requirements appears, cameras with a hundred megapixels, the potential of which is not even revealed half, and chips like reverse chargers that no one uses? Therefore, there was clearly no need to wait for exceptions. Especially from the Galaxy Note 20.

Samsung today unveiled two new Galaxy Note smartphones: the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. The devices turned out to be very sophisticated, but at the same time too contradictory. Therefore, we will quickly dwell on the characteristics and move on to impressions.

Galaxy Note 20 specifications

Yes, it doesn’t bomb me, or Why is the Galaxy Note 20 so garbage

This is Galaxy Note 20. New from Samsung, which turned out to be a smaller flagship than S20

Display: 6.7 and 6.9 inches depending on the model; Processor: Exynos 990 for Russia and Snapdragon 865+ for the USA; Camera: 64/108 Mp RAM: 8/12 GB Memory: 256/512 GB Battery: 4300/4500 mAh Price: 79 990/99 990 rubles

We must take! Galaxy Note 10 in Russia fell by 40% since the start of sales

We should start with the fact that we – that is, buyers from Russia – were given a flagship, but clearly second-rate. Unlike the American version, the hardware base of which is the top-end Snapdragon 865+ processor, the Russian Galaxy Note 20 is equipped with an old Exynos 990, which first debuted at the beginning of the year in the Galaxy S20. Yes, this is still the flagship “stone”, but the performance of the 865+ will obviously be higher, and it will also have better energy efficiency. In general, a shame.

Is it the Galaxy Note 20. Or the Galaxy Note 10? I’m confused because they look so much alike

The RAM was cut compared to the Galaxy S20 – at least in the top-end modifications. If the S20 Ultra had 12/16 GB, then for the Note 20 this gradation dropped to 8/12. I would not say that I was very upset because of this, after all, 12 and even more so 16 gigs today are banal to apply. But against the general background, such a downgrade looks somehow weak-willed, indicating that Samsung, generally speaking, understands the dead end of the bar once taken, and realizes that its destiny is budget smartphones.

Should you buy the Galaxy Note 20

From a design point of view, smartphones are not to be found fault with. From the front they look very modern, and from the back they are extremely minimalistic. This miniism is provided by a newly designed three-chamber module, which is inserted into a rectangular knob. Korean designers did not flirt with the roundness characteristic of Chinese devices, but did it in their own way. It turned out simple and impressive.

Samsung has improved the Galaxy Note 20 camera, overclocked the S Pen, but overall it’s not a fundamental difference

But with the materials of execution, Samsung let us down, at least in relation to the younger version. While the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is made of metal and Gorilla Glass 7, the body of the classic Note 20 is made of some kind of mixture of glass and plastic, which is ingratiatingly called “glastic”. I do not know what is there with the strength, but it feels like this whole thing is ordinary plastic and from a conceptual point of view it leaves the impression of trying to save money. In general, to get high, holding a new smartphone in hand, now it will turn out only with the most expensive version for a hundred thousand rubles.

Do the new products have any advantages? Well, there are definitely no ones that no one was expecting and who could really surprise. Yes, the Koreans accelerated the S Pen, reducing its response time to 8ms, yes, they renamed the Galaxy Note 20+ to Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and even clocked the resolution of its camera to 108MP. But, frankly, the thing that they are trying to pass off as perfection itself is some kind of triviality, which I would not buy and would not advise you. Take the Note 10 better. At least it costs adequate money.
