The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Big. Powerful. Expensive. Samsung's latest superphone is arresting and feature-packed.

Samsung's flagship device has a 6.9-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate (that's the fastest you can get.)

The S Pen stylus sets the Note family apart from the Galaxy S line.

The high-resolution screen is bold and beautiful.

As are the mystic bronze color and matte finish.

The S Pen gets faster this year.

The 120Hz screen support makes the S Pen more responsive on the Note 20 Ultra than the regular Note 20 or other Note phones (the Ultra's S Pen works on other Notes, and vice versa).

This mystic bronze finish is shimmery and striking. The camera bump is large.

Samsung has done a nice job styling the camera array, despite its largesse.

How do you feel about the bump? It's two inches tall, one inch wide and two inches diagonally.
