    Tiene una ficha técnica increíble, lo mejor que un teléfono puede tener pero funciona todo mal. Comenzamos por la pantalla, tiene 120hz adaptativos pero con la resolucion FHD+ (que no es la máxima), los 120hz funcionan muy bien en apps nativas como la pantalla de inicio o en la configuración, ahora bien dentro de apps como Instagram, twitter o whatsapp con mucha suerte supera los 70hz. El dia a dia con el teléfono es normal pero no es la sensacion de tener un equipo de alta gama, tiene detalles que por el precio que pagamos no deberían estar. La cámara es un dolor de cabeza, la mayoría de las fotos salen borrosas, con poca definición o demasiada saturación del color. La frontal es in-usable, probablemente la peor cámara frontal que probé. Como punto positivo es la carga rápida, una locura. La batería dura normal para el uso que el doy, generalmente llega al día pero con lo justo Mi experiencia después de un año de uso es muy mala, mi anterior teléfono fue un iPhone 7 plus que no tenia ninguno de estos problemas, lo que decía la ficha técnica se respetaba a rajatabla y sentías eso. Con el Note20 Ultra es todo lo contrario, no existe integración entre software y hardware. Conclusión: No lo compren, yo particularmente voy a volver al iPhone, tiene un poco menos de prestaciones pero funciona mucho mejor y la idea de un smartphone es que nos de soluciones rapidas y bien, no dolores de cabeza. Un saludo!

    Pros

    • Caraga Rapida
    • El S-pen, no lo uso nunca pero esta bueno

    Cons

    • Rendimiento
    • Camara (todas)
    • Funcionamiento de los 120Hz
    • Se calienta bastante
    • El brillo en situciones de mucho sol queda corto
