Samsung’s been making some good headway to keep up with its original Android 11 rollout schedule. Its current flagship lines have already received the One UI 3.0 update on AT&T and Verizon, although T-Mobile’s S20 hit a roadblock last week resulting in a halted rollout. However, T-Mobile has still seemingly gone ahead with the Note20's update as many users have already started receiving the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 experience on their 2020 Note flagships.
If you've seen our review of the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra, you know it's slick. You also know it's expensive — a $1300 price tag can be a hard pill to swallow. Luckily, eBay seller sobeonline1 has listed the international, dual-SIM, 256 GB model of the Note20 Ultra for $930 — $370 off the price of the single-SIM, 128 GB US model.
Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy Note20 series around a month ago, which means that now is a great time to be buying last year's model. Microsoft's eBay storefront is currently offering the US unlocked model of the Galaxy Note10+ for $749.99, which is $350 off MSRP.
Samsung's Galaxy Note series offers some of the best specs and biggest screens you'll find on a smartphone. When we reviewed the Note9 back in 2018, we called it "the best smartphone you can buy." Even though it's no longer the new kid on the block, it's still a great package that includes a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage — and you can pick up a manufacturer refurbished model on eBay for just $389.99 right now.
Samsung's been at the top of its game when it comes to software updates lately, and most recently that's taken the shape of bringing One UI 3.0 to the Galaxy family. Hot on the heels of the Note 20 series getting a taste of Android 11, Samsung is now rolling out One UI 3.0 to the Notes of yesteryear — the Note10 and the Note10+.
LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM around, bringing new Android updates to abandoned phones, and a stock-like experience (with or without Google software) to newer devices. The last time we covered the project, it added support for a handful of phones from Huawei, Sony, Xiaomi, and OnePlus. Since then, many more devices have made their way to the official roster.
Samsung's Note line is renowned for its large displays, powerful specs, and built-in S Pen stylus. It's also known for being particularly pricey; the new Note20 line starts at $1,000. If the most appealing parts of the Note experience to you are the size and the stylus, good news! You can pick up a Note10 Lite on eBay for $375 right now.
Samsung's new Galaxy S21 series is now shipping to buyers, and just like last year, there are three models to choose from. Even though all of them — the S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra — are cheaper than their S20 counterparts, they can still cost you up to $1,200. Finding the best deal possible could save you hundreds of dollars.
