The Galaxy S20 Ultra, a revolution in Samsung

Samsung is launching at the same time as the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20+, the Ultra S20. The latter is the most efficient version of the range, which explains a higher price. The Ultra S20 has so efficient features that it is one of the best smartphones available at the moment. With a 6.9 inch screen with Quad HD technology+, The Ultra S20 offers a flawless visual experience. Its very long -lasting battery of 5000mAh is the second largest on the market behind the Mi note 10.

On the camera side, the Ultra S20 has a penta camera composed of an ultra wide angle of 12mpx, a wide angle of 108mpx, a 48mpx telephoto lens and two TOF sensors. In front of its selfie sensor offers a 40mpx resolution. Thanks to the artifelled intelligence, the Space Zoom of the ultra galaxy s20 will allow you to zoom in to X100.

Samsung Galaxy S20: our screen and performance measurements

We tested the Samsung Galaxy S20 and the Samsung Galaxy S20 ultra partially by focusing on the quality of their screen and the performance of the Exynos 990 that they embark. The idea of ​​this article is to show you the potential of these smartphones while waiting for our complete tests that we would like to publish after having received the final software update provided by the manufacturer.

Nevertheless, if this period of time is usually enough to publish our complete tests, this is not the case this time. In question, an unlimited version of the software which should therefore not represent the final experience of users during the release of smartphones on March 13.

Samsung has indeed planned to deploy a software correction at the beginning of March. A final update of devices which should, according to the manufacturer, significantly improve two points: autonomy and photo quality. These are among the most important criteria for consumers and, in this regard, we prefer to wait a little more before the publication of our full tests.

To make you wait, However, we attacked two other large aspects of the Galaxy S20: the screen and the performance. We therefore present our first technical results to you to give you an idea of ​​the display quality and the power on which you can count with these smartphones.

Note that we have focused our efforts on the Samsung Galaxy S20 and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, the first being the one that will undoubtedly be the most sold, the second being the most impressive technologically (and the most expensive).

A very neat visual experience

For screens, let’s start by recalling some important points before going into details. Already, it should be noted that Samsung has obviously integrated AMOLED tiles on its Galaxy S20. On each model, you therefore benefit from an infinite and therefore perfect contrast and you can trust the know-how of the Korean giant in the matter.

Now let’s move on to the diagonals of the two variations tested here:

  • 6.2 inches For the classic Galaxy S20
  • 6.9 inches For the Galaxy S20 Ultra

Screen resolution

So we find ourselves on a fairly classic format on the Galaxy S20 against a diagonal that approaches (with a little room) that of a tablet for the Galaxy S20 Ultra. This difference obviously has consequences on display resolution or, in other words, the density of displayed pixels.

Indeed, the two smartphones offer the same display definitions and therefore display both 2400 x 1080 pixels in Full HD+ and 3200 x 1440 pixels when you go to QHD+. In terms of resolution, the classic galaxy s20 therefore has the advantage since it offers so many pixels on a smaller surface. We have prepared the table below so that you realize it.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra
In Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) 424 pixels per inch 350 pixels per inch
In QHD+ (3200 x 1400 pixels) 566 pixels per inch 506 pixels per inch

In this regard, let us recall that even in Full HD+, the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20 Ultra offer a largely sufficient resolution for the comfort of the. The QHD+ mode – more energy -greed – is especially relevant for virtual reality experiences.

Display quality

Now direction the laboratory to submit these beautiful screens to our probe and to the Calman measurement software. By default, Samsung has set its slabs to a very effective live mode to offer a very wide color palette.

This lively mode set a notch to a hot temperature offers the best balance

In return, you must deal with shades little faithful to reality. You can remedy it by opting for natural mode, but it is much less good to display a wide variety of colors, because it is less effective in terms of covering the colorimetric spaces SRGB and DCI-P3-especially on the latter which is significantly wider.

This is why, at Frandroid, we recommend that you opt for a lively mode and personalize it by dragging the slider of the white balance of a notch towards hot temperatures. You will end up with the best balance between a wide coverage of colorimetric spaces and tones close to reality.

You will indeed benefit from a temperature fairly close to the 6,500 K bar considered to be the ideal to reach. At the same time, the variety of colors displayed remains very large while the Delta E Middle – representing the gap between the white displayed and the real white – is, certainly, far removed from index 3 to which it should be stretched out. However, you should know that our measures were carried out with the DCI-P3 for reference. The colors are therefore quite sublimated.

We summarized everything in the table below. Note also that the maximum brightness reached on the screens of the Galaxy S20 and S20 Ultra is very largely sufficient to ensure visibility to the test of the sunny days of your life.

Samsung Galaxy S20 (hot live mode) Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra (Warm Mode) Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ (Warm Warm Mode)
Temperature 6350 k 6330 k 6390 k
Contrast Infinity Infinity Infinity
Maximum brightness 708 cd/m² 724 cd/m² 700 cd/m²
Delta E Middle on DCI-P3 5.92 6.3 6.1
SRGB cover 204 % 209 % 208 %
DCI-P3 cover 137 % 141 % 138 %
BT 2020 cover 93 % 95 % 93 %

Note that the Galaxy Note 10+ released last summer benefits a screen with very similar qualities as indicated by our table. Finally, the main weak point of this model compared to the new ones is not to be able to go up beyond the 60 Hz on its slab.

120 Hz mode

Note that on all Galaxy S20, you can enjoy a 120 Hz screen refreshment. That is to say that the slab displays 120 images per second to offer more fluidity. This function is extremely pleasant to use and absolutely does not want to return to the 60 classic Hz which appear almost bland in comparison. Be careful however, this 120 Hz mode necessarily consumes more battery.

This function is extremely pleasant

It is most certainly for this reason that it remains impossible to activate the QHD+ definition at the same time as the 120 Hz mode. It would be too energy -consuming, but it would still seem that Samsung is thinking of an option to reconcile the two parameters.



Note that at the box outlet, Smartphones are configured on a refreshment at 60 Hz by default. It’s up to you to get the 120 Hz.

The relative power of exynos 990

Now let’s move on to the performance issue. On the European models of the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Ultra, it is an exynos 990 that we find. This chip is supposed to be the equivalent Made by Samsung Snapdragon 865. Suffice to say that it deploys very great power and is clearly located at the top of the basket. The scores recorded here on the different benchmarks that we traditionally launch during our smartphones tests are particularly high.

Sock Exynos 990 Exynos 990
Antutu 8.X 510 024 530 920

Sequential reading / writing 1,512/679 MB / s 1 408/665 MB / s

This power is perfectly felt on parts of Call of Duty Mobile or PUBG with the graphics pushed at the bottom.

European customers can feel a touch of frustration

However, it is still impossible for us to launch Fortnite on the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Ultra. It would seem that compatibility is not yet ready on the side of Epic Games. We imagine – and hope – that this concern will be settled at the time of the exit of the devices.

Above all, it should be noted that European customers can feel a touch of frustration about not to take advantage of the Snapdragon 865 embedded by the Galaxy S20 in other markets. During a test carried out on a prototype, the latest Qualcomm chip reached a score of 570,000 on Antutu, which largely beats the results observed with our models.

However, in the United States, tests on GFXBENCH display equivalent or less good results for the Galaxy S20 Ultra on GFXBENCH, because Chase and Aztec Vulkan High TIER. Finally, what must especially remember on this opposition Exynos 990 and Snapdragon 865 is that the latter is much better optimized in terms of energy consumption. Result, and the first observations seem to go in this direction, we must expect a significantly less good autonomy on European models.

Note that the models we test are equipped with 12 GB of RAM.

Price and availability

Samsung markets its Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra on March 13. Count 909 euros for the Galaxy S20 4G, 1009 euros for the Galaxy S20 5G (here tested). We stay at 1009 euros for the Galaxy S20+ 4G, and you have to go up to 1109 euros for the Galaxy S20+ 5G.

Finally, the Galaxy S20 Ultra (only in 5g) is 1359 euros. While waiting for our complete smartphones tests, do not hesitate to find our handles.
