    Probably wrong thread as this is discussing phones under $1000 but I will be getting a Samsung s20 ultra or the note 20 ultra.

    Curious to hear any thoughts. Seems many reviews say to go to the note 20 ultra over the s20 ultra.

    To be honest all the phones these are days are equally capable I feel. I mean at that price point they all have massive specs and what not so it's just a matter of what you think you like the best. I would wait until the Fold 2 personally as the pre-orders are supposed to be happening September 1.

    S20 ultra's camera is gimped with focus hunting issue.

    Note 20 Ultra fixed it with added laser focus module.

    But that's about it. Also, heard the battery life isn't as good as Notes of the past.

    Looks pretty cool but not sure I'm able to wait. Need a new phone as mines crapping out. Plus there's some good plans I can take advantage of until the end of the day today.

    I read that about the 100x magnification but who needs that. So far I've read the note ultra with the refresh rate that automatically changes makes up for the battery not being as good as the s20.

    If I HAD to buy a phone right away and it HAD to be Android, the top of the line Note would be my first choice personally.

    They need to stop advertising digital zoom (cropping) as part of the magnification. Optically it's a 5x. Anyway, wide > zoom.

    Either get the S20/S20+ or the Note 20 Ultra.

    The spec sheets are absolutely ridiculous, I'm not sure what more one could want from a phone these days haha. Samsung UI has got a lot better over the years, and you can re-map Bixby to Google Assistant.

    The Pixel 5 is looking to be a mid-range device so I'll probably be doing the same unless the iPhone 12 Pro somehow can beat the S20 feature-wise which isn't looking like it will based on current rumors anyway.

    Regarding battery, you can customize the refresh rates and resolutions so you have a choice when you want max performance or max battery life. They have huge batteries regardless and extremely fast charging (25W wired, 15W wireless)

    Beyond the 5x optical zoom the cameras start to get pretty bad, which is no surprise. The digital "zoom" is usable for social media out to about 30X but after that it's garbage.

    What I really want is a Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra but they may not be sold outside of China.

    I ordered the note ultra. I'll play around with it for a few days when it arrives and see how it goes.

    The new samsung fold does look cool. If it launches mid Sept like I read its not that far down the road and could swap out devices.

    I have the Note 10 plus. I guess I could be persuaded to sell that to upgrade to the 20 Ultra.

    Isn't the fold basically a year old now?

    Basically if it weren't pull off the shelf with those screen issues and nobody got them back until 5-6 months after launch.

    I'd pick up a fold in a second, but it looks pretty 1st gen to me.

    There is a Fold 2 that's coming out now and supposed to be released in September. They made quite a few changes including a much better usable outside screen. I tried the Fold one twice...but just couldn't daily it and ended up getting rid of it both times. The new one I am not sure if I will get yet - ultimately I just want to stay with iOS ideally.

    Edge to Edge screen on all 3 sides.

    Sexy AF.

    Wonder if it will hit $3K CAD this time.

    Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2?

    What, they couldn’t have thrown a couple M’s or 4matic’s into that name?
