Alright, if you're here, you already know (or at least suspect) that something serious is going on.

That's right. What started as a great thing, has become seriously bad over time, to a point that I can't just recommend the Exynos variant.

This isn't our typical smartphone comparison. Still, we're going to analyze these two, section by section, because this isn't just about chipsets.

Anyways, the Snapdragon variant was released this summer in the U.S market and South Korea, while the home-made Exynos variant is being sold to the rest of the world.

Down below, there's a "Tek-Score" in every analyzed section of these models. We even assessed the worth of all specifications to make it easier for you to perceive the difference between them. There's also a global score for you to compare them to other phones if you're curious about other models aside from these two.

The weight of each section

We've based our score on a study from Globalwebindex.com on what features users value on new smartphones. But you'll get a say in the matter by setting it to your personal preferences. Click here to skip everything, but keep reading because I'll be unveiling many things about these two and their rivals.

For additional information regarding our smartphone comparisons, check this FAQ.

You're going to find a red or green bar next to some features. It's there for you to better understand how they fare against other smartphones at the same price range.

Here is their competitors' extensive list: but essentially, we're ignoring smartphones that are more than 20% cheaper or expensive.

Some features are also shortcuts to several top 10 tables for every spending plan.

Which One Has The Best Performance?

OK, is it that bad?

Well, let me put this way. The Snapdragon equivalent of the Exynos 990 on the Geekbench 5 score table is the 855. The Snapdragon 855 was released in early 2019, then Qualcomm released a minor variant, the 855+, then the 865, and now the 865+ that's inside the US variant.

What that means is that there's a performance gap of about 21% on the multicore score. The single-core, on the other hand, it's "only" 4%, and while some apps are limited to using only one, the OS can actually use the other ones whenever needed.

That's not to say that the Exynos 990 is a slow SoC. In fact, on daily usage, while opening apps, you shouldn't see any difference. That does change as soon as you start to open any decent-sized game. Again, it's only notable when you have these two variants side by side, but the Exynos does show how it struggles to keep up with the 865+. While you'll most likely only lose a few frames per second (fps), it's the thermal throttling that does make a difference here, as the Exynos usually runs quite a bit hotter.

You can check other details here, on Youtube.

By the way, the Exynos has a Mali-G77 MP11 GPU, while the 865+ has an Adreno 650.

So that's when some will say: "-Well, I can live with that." Unfortunately, this isn't only about performance. But we're getting there.

Which Phone Has The Best Display?

This is one of the few sections where you shouldn't expect any difference between them. Both phones have the same AMOLED 6.9-inch display. To each, it's own. Most people seem to prefer AMOLED for its saturated colors and higher contrast.

They also have a 1440x3088 Quad HD display that's protected with state of the art Gorilla Glass Victus from Corning.

Other fancy features that they share are the Always-On display, the 1024 nits of brightness if you set their brightness to auto, the ability to play HDR10+ videos, and the 120Hz of refresh rate.

Which Phone Has The Best Cameras?

So what about their cameras? Hold on.

These two do share their specs, which, by the way, are: A whopping 108 MP camera with an aperture of f/1.8, a 26 mm wide-angle lens, one flash LED, HDR abilities, and Optical Image Stabilization.

They can also record videos at up to 4320p. There's also one 12 MP camera with an aperture of f/3.0 and an astounding 120 mm telephoto lens, and another one with 12 MP and a 13 mm ultra-wide-angle lens. But there's much more than lenses and sensors on any given camera. That's when the Image Signal Processing unit (ISP) comes in, and yes, they also aren't the same.

Now, while you shouldn't see that much of a difference here (check the mentioned Youtube link for more info), there's a reason (maybe a major one?) for you to pick this device, right? Yes, it's cameras. That's why I think Samsung shouldn't have chosen this path.

Anyways, did you know you can take a 108 MP photo, zoom in and crop, and get 2x of optical zoom? By cropping it into a 27 MP photo. That must be some kind of intermediate zoom.

On the front of the phone, there's the same f/2.2 10 MP camera and the same 26 mm wide-angle lens.

DxOMark has rated this camera with a score of 122. If you also add a rate for telephoto and wide-angle lenses, that will go up to 136. To check their review, click here

Update: So, DxOMark ended up reviewing the Snapdragon version of this smartphone as well, and, as I suspected, there's a slight difference between them. This one got a score of 119, and together with its wide-angle and telephoto lenses, it gets a final score of 132.

What I wasn't expecting, though, is that according to them, the Exynos variant has better picture quality. You can check their review here.

Who has the best frame?

They also share their height: (164 mm / 6.46 inches), together with the same width (77 mm / 3.03 inches).

These two also have the same thickness: 8 mm (0.32 inches).

A front and back glass does make these phones look premium on your hands. I'm hoping you don't mind carrying a phone with about 208 g. (7.34 oz), because they both weigh that. If you're looking for a lightweight device, I've come up with an adapted "display size to phone weight ratio" rate, and they both got 4.4, which shows it has an acceptable ratio for its display size.

You do have some options regarding colors here: Mystic Bronze, Mystic White, and Mystic Black.

Does a fingerprint scanner matter to you? It's ok. Samsung didn't forget them.

By being water-resistant, they can be submerged in 1 to 3 meters of water, but remember: it's for a maximum period of half an hour, in standby and freshwater only, so no saltwater or pools here.

Which has the best battery?

Don't know what you're expecting here, but the truth is that a well-made chipset can give you an edge when it comes to battery endurance. And that's also the case with these two.

By charging them up and testing them out, this is what the Exynos delivers:

  • From 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 1 hour of video playback, you'll end up with 83% of battery charge.

  • By talking for 1 hour, browsing the web for 3 hours, and playing videos for 1 hour, you'll get down to 69% left.

  • By talking for 1 hour, browsing the web for 1 hour, and playing videos for 3 hours, you'll still get 72% to spend doing other things.

And this is what you'll get out of the Snapdragon variant:

  • After 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 1 hour of video playback, you'll have 84% of battery remaining.

  • If you do 1 hour of talking, 3 hours of web browsing, and 1 hour of video playback, the battery charge will be at nearly 71%.

  • After 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 3 hours of video playback, you'll still get 73% to spend doing other things.

You shouldn't expect notable differences here, but accordingly to that Youtube video mentioned above, you should also expect at least 7% of extra screen-on time with the Snapdragon version.

Fast-charging's here, and both Galaxys support it. They can go up to 25w, and 15w for wireless charging. They can also support reverse wireless charging to charge Qi-enabled devices.

Which has more storage?

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comes equipped with 128GB of internal storage and 12GB of RAM. Free space won't be an issue here because you can always add a MicroSD card to it. But that's on the Snapdragon variant. If you get the Exynos, you'll most likely get 256GB of storage. Wait, what? That's right!

I guess that's a way of Samsung to say: "I'm sorry."

Internal (GB) 256GB 128GB -128

*Internal Storage + 256GB Memory Card (Max: 512GB).

Which is the most connectivity-friendly?

You can count on Bluetooth 5.0 on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos variant, while the Snapdragon has a Bluetooth 5.2 on its SoC. That's right, Qualcomm updated it's Bluetooth modem, again.

You can also find NFC on both of them.

Do you still favor wired headphones? None of them will help you with that. Just skip adapters and get a decent pair of wireless earbuds.

Verdict: What Makes the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (Exynos) Stand Out?

Well, by adding 128GB of storage, according to out Tek-Score formula, Samsung just made the Exynos version of the Note 20 Ultra the best all-around smartphone (for the time being). Obviously, for some people, performance is everything, but, as claimed by the initially mentioned GlobalWebIndex study, most people do value storage. For those who love to record 4k videos (or even 8k), 256GB of storage plus a MicroSD card is more than enough to keep them from the hassles of files and space management.

But if you're not happy with it, you can just try and order one from the US. It should work fine on European networks. Just make sure to weigh all the pros and cons, and you know what you're getting into. Remember to add a voided warranty to the cons list.

But there are a few things that I don't consider, like price, brand value, size, resell value, OS (iOS or Android), user experience, updates, RAM (included on performance), battery to phone size, display size to weight, network (LTE/5G), and biometrics.


Progress bars explained

#1: A big red progress bar means that this value is way below the average. In this case, it's 28.85MP, and the iPhone XR is 16.85MP below the average.

#2: In this example, the XR is just 0.36mm below the average, that's why the red bar is almost unnoticeable.

#3: On the other hand, the SE 2 is 1.8mm above (hence, the green bar) the 26.2mm of average.

#4: Performance-wise, the SE 2 is well above the average (of 2512) for its price range. That's the reason the green bar is that long.


"Display size to phone weight" ratio explained

This indeed is a "display size to phone weight" ratio, but because every phone ended up somewhere between 0.0272 and 0.0421, I've amplified (adapted) those values so they would fit in a 0-10 scale. As of now, the best smartphone is the Samsung Galaxy A40, with 140g. (4.94 oz) for a 5.9 inch display. It got a score of 9.92. While the worse device is the iPhone 8 Plus, which weighs 202 g. (7.13 oz) and has a 5.5-inch display. It ended up with a score of 0.75.

Please, be aware that this score is subject to change if and when a new smartphone comes along that ends up being outside of this scale.


"Battery to device size" ratio explained

This score should give you an idea about the energy footprint of the devices you're considering. It reflects not only the hardware and the energy that it requires but also the amount of energy that the battery can deliver.

The major spenders on any device should be the display and the SoC. But everything from a notification led to its modems need to be optimized, or else, the OEM should simply include a bigger battery as a compensation. Unfortunately, it isn't always possible due to size limitations. But in the end, if a particular OEM can do a good job and give you excellent battery life on a small device, so should everyone else. That's why I've added a "battery to device size" ratio. But since the real scale went from 119 (for the Galaxy S10e, Snapdragon variant) and up to 164 (for the iPhone 7 Plus), I've decided to convert them so they would fit in a 0-10 scale, being 0 the worst device, (the iPhone 7 Plus) and 10 the one every OEM should look up to.

As an example, Apple did an excellent job on the iPhone 7. It has a score of 8. Despite having a small capacity, the hardware is well optimized, and it still gives you decent battery life considering its size. The iPhone 7 Plus, on the other hand, with those bezels shrinking its display size, clearly could've been the #1 in our top 10 list of best battery devices if Apple simply filled all that empty space with a bigger battery.

As a side note: I haven't included the dept of the devices in this formula because even if a device ended up being 1mm/0.03 inches thicker, it wouldn't matter that much to those who really value battery life.

Please, be aware that this score is subject to change if and when a new smartphone comes along that ends up being outside of this scale.

Battery results

The battery score is based on Gsmarena's endurance rating and is taken with a screen brightness of 200 nits and a refresh rate of 60hz.

Assumptions: The display is off during a call, there's a web page refresh every 10 seconds, and the video playback is in Airplane mode.

You can click here for more information about those tests.


Formula deviation

Since the guys at DxoMark don't review every camera out there, I've come up with a formula based on the ones that they do rate, so I could get an equivalent score for the ones they don't review. After testing it against these cameras, I got the deviation between that and their DxO score.

As you can see, most cameras sit between 1 and -1, while a few of them go up to 2 or -2. That means it's reasonable to assume other similar cameras that they don't review to, in the worst-case scenario, be anywhere from -2 to 2 points from the score that the formula gets.

For example: Given that the Pixel 4 got 117 points and that the Pixel 4 XL share the same year and camera specs, it's reasonable to expect a score of 117 too. But in reality, if they do review that camera, it may end up anywhere between 115 and 119.

Be aware that at DxO, they give a score based on their opinion, not based on any formula. That's why I think there's an odd difference of 6 points between the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X. In theory, they should have the same camera.

I'm guessing that the Mi 9T Pro got a deviation of 7 points because they tested its Chinese variant (the K20 Pro).

Update: They just changed their protocol to include preview image evaluation and trustability. I'm keeping the old table (for now) for reference purposes, and I'll be adding a new one as soon as they review at least a couple of new mclass-range cameras.

You can expect the same (or a bit bigger) deviation for high-end cameras, but anything with a score below 100-110 should be taken with a grain of salt.

This is valclass for all cameras tested with the previous protocol. For those that they dclassn't test, the deviation may be up to twice as much.



With regards to AMOLED screens, sometimes OEMs claim higher maximum brightness. That's because an AMOLED screen can push its brightness progressively higher as its white area gets smaller.

These values are from the lab tests made by GSMArena, and their white test pattern takes up 75% of the physical size of the screen.
