Engadget Review

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is… a lot. It has a big screen with a very high refresh rate, a very sharp selfie camera and support for speedy 5G. It also features a trio of advanced cameras on its rear that can shoot up to 108-megapixel-sharp pictures, 8K video and get as close as 100x to a subject. But Samsung’s camera software is pretty rough. Plus, the Ultra’s size and weight make it unwieldy and basically impossible to fit most pockets. The S20 Ultra is a good phone, But for a whopping $1,400, it needs to be more than good. And sadly it falls shy of greatness.
