Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra - Hands On With The Beast!

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra - Hands On With The Beast!
would you look at that the hottest new flagship smartphone on planet earth ladies and gentlemen in studio that is the s20

ultra

is definitely the device I'm most interested in it's definitely the device that will is the most interested in look at him over there can you tell how interested he is hey most of it has to do with this camera region on the back this is the most tremendous camera section of a smartphone I've ever seen look at how that thing jumps right out of the phone diminish this effect a little bit by putting a case on we've already got the later case ready for the s20

ultra

but also the other s20 devices and as you can see that little ramp there kind of obfuscates the huge amount of lift off this will also help with fingerprints give you a little more grip those are actually available right now anyhow so what makes this phone so special it's the camera to start particularly this lens down on the bottom 100x zoom

Samsung

is saying it's a combination of various zoom techniques starting with optical and then adding other stuff to it the other cool thing here is a massive megapixel count at a hundred and eight megapixels on the main camera now granted you might think to yourself I seen 180 megapixels before you know 108 megapixels because that means you get really small pixels possibly bad low-light performance well

Samsung

claims have some technology in here that's going to actually do some binning of those pixels and in certain...

circumstances pile them together to behave more like a lower megapixel count sensor in the right circumstance if you know what I'm saying straight away that's a big phone I'll give you a quick comparison this is the plus size phone from last year that's the s10 plus it's fatter it's taller it's even a bit wider by the looks of it you know you can probably appreciate a bigger form factor because that bigger form factor normally houses a bigger battery and this is a huge battery it's a five thousand milliamp hour battery inside of here that's a six point nine inch AMOLED display you have the baked in

sonic fingerprint scanner and as you can see that's a tiny little front-facing camera cut out so less distracting than some of the other implementations that are out there for front-facing cameras they got a little bit less aggressive around the edges with the curvature so hopefully what that means by having a slightly flatter screen is that you're gonna have fewer of those accidental presses on the display this thing is got the Snapdragon e65 it's got 5g built into it it's got up to 16 gigs of ram well did you hear that 16 gigs of ram on a phone on a smart phone what are you doing on your smart phone will will doesn't know what he's doing a smart phone this is a 120 Hertz display at least in 1080p and what that gives you is a phone that feels feels significantly faster than a phone that has a lower refresh rate is it...

actually faster it doesn't really matter the fact is if it feels snappier to you than it is and you can see that this tiny little front-facing camera it's not bugging you at all barely I mean there's some dance moves for you okay it's a loud it's definitely a loud speaker but maybe given the form factor of the device maybe I was expecting it to be a little bit louder Sting's gonna start at 13 99 and I think the majority of interest is going to exist because of the improved camera setup people are gonna compare this to all the other flagship people could compare this to the iPhones of the world and even to the previous generation to the s10 because the s10 is gonna drop in price now and it's gonna become a lot more attractive let's do some tests over here let's go see Willie do as you can see here we got Willie do framed up and there's the three options right within the main app you have 2.5 x

wide I'm a big fan of this this is cool bang you take that this is your standard 1x lens bang you take that there's your 5x my good zooom will is not a fan of that and he was getting full out beauty mode there right out the gate straight out the app right out the gate softened your right up men cook carrier that's your standard that's a nice-looking camera and that's your wide of course architecture travel nature get more in the frame big group shot I'm a big fan of the wide you're not really stuck in this stock...

mode here they give you some tremendous options including a pro mode which lets you go bananas with your various settings I mean these are similar to pro camera setting so everything is baked in there in pro mode but they've also got a fancy mode this year called single take it's actually gonna take a little bit of everything all at once and then you can choose after the fact whatever you think was the coolest thing captured bang there it is capturing meaningful moments keep moving well trying new angles panning around capturing more we have the animated Willie do we have their suggestion which was this one moment where he's looking real tough he's a UFC fighter and the camera get pans to him when he's sitting in the crowd and they got to do something they're like so you can never criticize or blame Sampson for not throwing options and features into their thing in the video mode they went straight bananas because they added up to 8k video recording 7680 by 4320 on your phone I hear your concerns where you can even watch 8k we're gonna do with 8k unless you're Kirk captain cinema over there he's got all kinds of places for 8k we're gonna roll on a clip here all right well you're on camera and 8k I don't believe you've ever been recorded in 8k before it's too many pixels for you okay so but I gotta say I'm gonna move in on your camera a little bit it is tremendous detail it's got some noise to it I'll tell you...
what whoo all right very sensitive on the autofocus fairly tremendous image when it grabs it of course we got Jack what's happening and we got Kirk as well you deserve to be an 8k since you started it all there you go you can also edit 8k straight on here there was an argument that

Samsung

made they said you could pull a frame from it a super high-res video still and now you can shoot video instead and have all this resolution to work with when you grab a frame out I don't know if regular people are gonna use this that way they gotta be at the top of that spec sheet if they want $1,400 from you they have to actually they have to think about bringing features that you might not be using right now like 5g for example like 16 gigs of RAM like 512 gigs of storage which also happens to be expandable or this particular device there's no headphone jack not that I expected to see one I mean other phones still have it if you absolutely need to have a headphone jack all right this phone is getting kind of disgusting I don't know if Jack can see it or not we'll give you a shot I mean these things pick up finger friends but I don't want to lose the actual form factor of the device either that's why this is the thing that's the later case and every time I switch to a new phone I'd be mad that I couldn't find a thin Kevlar case for that new model when it launched it was an annoyance to myself so that's why we developed this one and as you can...
tell straight away that's a better look you don't want to see your fingerprints man we almost forgot to do the the zoom test will 100x did you know the world was waiting for this now look at this top section right here Jack how it shows you where you're aiming because it gets really hard to figure out what we're looking at we have the Brixton logo filling the frame right now it's trying to scan it it knows it's a document at that range you're probably gonna be pretty much done with the zoom around 10x maybe in some really nice lighting you'd go beyond that but there's your 10x shot yeah it's usable around there but once you get into the fancy stuff well beyond the optical it's obvious the thing starts to break up outdoors in daylight you might get some more play you get a faster shutter and all the rest of it is so hard in 2020 to differentiate yourself as a smartphone maker especially if you want to charge the absolute premium for your phone so it we are at a point where you have to pack features that people might not even necessarily need to use right now or want to use they may use it once and and and get some sort of a rush out of the fact that they could zoom halfway across the street they might not open it again but they know they have it and that is worth something it's a question for the individual how much that's actually worth and that's why

Samsung

puts out other versions of the phone that are cheaper the S 20...
and s 20 plus let's go look at those now you you
