Galaxy S20 Series Discussion

Recommended Posts

Oof, not a good review for the S20 Ultra auto-focus. Seems like they're not big on the 108 or 40mp pictures from the rear or front cameras compared to the standard 12 or 10mp shots. This may swing me back to the S20+, but I'm certain the auto-focus will suffer there too. The S20+ has different sized senors than the Ultra, so it's going to be a hard decision I fear. Otherwise, the photos hold up against the iphone 11 pro pretty well. Good review of the photo details, IMO.

I'll wait for MKBHD's reviews before I order anything.

I'm a little late to the pre order party but I just pre ordered the ultra unlocked version directly from samsung.  Not sure if I will put it on sprint or at&t but it feels good to have that option since I have multiple lines with both carriers.  I also ordered the buds+ in black and a samsung leather case(I didn't see anything else I wanted).  My go to case for all of my devices is the spigen tough armor hybrid case, just ordered one off of ebay.

I did exactly what you did. Same accessories too.

But I also got the 45watt charger.

For what it's worth the S20 Ultra just received a camera update today.

I don't care much for pre-release reviews, they're usually wrong in a lot of ways. I'm sure with a few proper updates the Ultra will be the best for the foreseeable future.

Agreed, but I also worry about this autofocus issue because this exists currently on the S10+ that I see occasionally. And it's possible it'll get fixed with software updates, but maybe it's a hardware issue. They changed the way they do their autofocus with the S20 line, so who knows?? 

I'm trying to get my lease payments cleared up so I can pre-order. As usual, Sprint online says different things than Sprint executive teams. When do the pre-orders stop??

Coming back from Google Fi. Place the order after I saw that I wouldn't have to put a trade in. But it seems mine is delayed! This will be my first Samsung device since the Galaxy S 4g hspa+ on T-Mobile! It's been a while since I've done Samsung.

Just curious, are you folks ordering the unlocked version or the Sprint version?  What are the pros and cons these days of the unlocked version vs. the Sprint version?

i ordered from sprint. so its sprint version.
the only pro about the unlocked is that it is sim unlocked lol.

you can interchange the firmware from sprint to unlocked firmware and vice versa.
this does not mean it will unlock the sim if its sprint locked.

The unlocked version will be able to use esim and regular sim day one. Also you get to use LTE and WiFi at the same time to download things from the play store and when you are connected to B41 the icon will say LTE+ instead of just LTE so you know when your on the slower bands.

These are things the Sprint version doesn’t do.

but most people arent "tech-savvy" like that

I finally got my account sorted out and ordered. Man, the Executive Team is the only place to go for help with Sprint. Tamaura got my account straightened out. Was able to upgrade 4 of my lines successfully. She said they'll ship out on the 3rd. 

I went with the S20+. I went and played with them all at Best Buy, I couldn't see how I'd use the camera tech difference between the 2. Sprint doesn't use mm wave 5G, so that's unnecessary. The weight of the Ultra was quite a bit as I played with them. I didn't realize until using them all that even the S20+ is taller than the 10+, not by much, but still taller. They are amazing looking phones and all screen. I'm excited for this spec bump. I'll have to get used to right side buttons for volume!!!

Mine says expected delivery is Tuesday by 8PM. I didn't pay for expedited shipping or anything like that. 

They already delivered my Galaxy Watch Active 2 and my case last Thursday. The Galaxy Buds+ haven't shipped yet though so that sucks.

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
       
      Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
      The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
      We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.
