Samsung’s latest smartphones, the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra 5G put power and play into the palm of your hand.
If you’re looking for phones to help you work more flexibly, these S Pen-sporting smartphones could be your perfect work buddies. Not only that, it’s serious about gaming too, with console level gameplay and controller compatibility.
Here are five reason why we love the new Samsung Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra 5G.
1. Full Microsoft Office integration
Microsoft software is vital for most businesses, whether you’re putting together a PowerPoint presentation or an Excel worksheet to show colleagues.
But with the Galaxy Note20 series you’re not tied to your laptop to get work done. The Galaxy Note20 series supports all of Microsoft’s most popular work apps including Word, Excel and PowerPoint, so now you can apply those finishing touches to your work on the train home or before you even get to the office.
With the Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G’s 6.9-inch display or the Galaxy Note 20’s 6.7-inch display, you’re getting a large canvas to do your work on without paying any subscription fees to use Microsoft Office apps on your phone.
2. Use your S Pen as a pointer
The mighty S Pen is at the very heart of Samsung’s Galaxy Note series, enabling you to sketch out ideas, write more naturally and easily edit documents. On top of all that, it’s great for annotating documents, jazzing up your photos with smart animations and controlling your camera remotely. All your hand-written notes can quickly be converted to typed up documents in Microsoft Word too, so if you’re jotting down ideas or maybe writing a book on your journey to and from work, you’ll never have to worry about not being able to read your notes.
Now this year, the Galaxy Note20 series comes with another useful feature. If you’re presenting work to an audience – perhaps a PowerPoint presentation you’ve put together on your Galaxy Note20 – you can take out your S Pen and use it to point at what you’re displaying on screen – easily adding some extra interaction to talks and presentations and making it easier for audiences to follow.
3. 120Hz refresh rate for ultra-smooth gaming
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 and Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G are gaming monsters. Their large screens mean mobile gaming looks and feels better than ever – all your favourite titles look beautiful and detailed on the Super AMOLED Infinity-O displays and there’s lots of room to use the on-screen buttons to control characters.
The Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G also features a dynamic 120Hz display, which put simply means that everything feels smoother and more responsive, which is vital in maintaining that competitive edge over your opponents.
Add to that the long-lasting, fast-charging batteries that help you play for longer, and compatibility with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and you have two phones perfect for mobile gaming on the go. These phones will certainly take your gaming up a level!
4. Shoot 8K video
For anyone working in a creative industry or developing their own content to attract audiences, you’ll appreciate the 8K video recording on the new Samsung Galaxy Note20 and Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G.
With 8K video recording, your creations shine with detail and look good enough to showcase on a 4K or 8K largescreen TV. Movie makers can really push the boundaries of what they create on a mobile, and if you’re shooting treasured moments with friends and family, you can be confident they’ll look incredible.
Advanced on-board editing tools means you can easily stitch together multiple clips and add creative touches to your videos, without the need for any advanced editing skills. You can keep all your files on your phone too, with up to 512GB of internal storage (Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G), plus up to 512GB of additional space via a MicroSD card.
5. Triple cameras to cover all angles
Both the Samsung Galaxy Note20 and Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G feature three impressive rear cameras to help you capture stunning photos from all angles. Wide and Ultra-Wide lenses let you capture more within the frame for action-packed shots, while the Telephoto lens gets you close to the action and focuses in on the smallest details you would’ve missed otherwise. A 5x Optical Zoom on the Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, and 3x Hybrid Optical Zoom on the Galaxy Note20, capture close-ups with incredible detail. You can even zoom in up to 50x using the Space Zoom on the Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G for subjects really far away.
An incredible 108-megapixel Wide-Angle camera on the Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G packs in supreme levels of detail, perfect for photos you want to enlarge, crop and print out to put on display.
