The S Pen
The biggest selling point for Samsung on the Note 20 is its new improved S pen which is claimed to feel more like a real pen on paper experience than ever before. The Note 20 also features a 120hz display which allows for smooth realistic strokes with the S Pen. The S pen also has 3x faster latency which means it does really feel close to a real pen on paper experience than ever before. The other thing that is really cool is that you can now record voice notes while taking notes with your S Pent to replay if you missed anything while writing.
The Note 20 Camera is intriguing but like most smartphones these days the bump remains a let down. It makes for an awkward user experience, especially if you have smaller hands and tend to like to use your phone with one hand. The idea though behind the Note 20 is that its designed for the ultimate professionals who prefer productivity to user experience. And productivity is where this 8K triple rear camera comes to the forefront. Its also very user-friendly and easy to use.
Ultra-Wideband, or UWB is a groundbreaking technology first available in the Note 20 which makes sharing files easier than ever before. In short UWB works when two Note 20 users point their camera at each other to instantly share files.
Another cool feature in the Note 20 is the option to record your videos with either the rear or front mic. Not only that you can also use your Buds Live to record audio with the Buds Live serving as a mic.
Like expected from a Note device, the Note 20 out performance any of its predecessors with a full days aggressive use on a single charge.
