Buy a brand-new, dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra for $830 on eBay

Samsung unveiled the S20 Ultra earlier this year as the most premium offering in its S range of devices. Despite boasting big specs, it was tough to recommend at the MSRP of $1,400. We initially gave the S20 Ultra a 7/10 rating, but later lowered that to 6/10 due to the cost and mediocre camera performance. It's a lot more attractive right now, thanks to a top-rated eBay seller offering brand new, factory unlocked models for just $829.99.

Fast forward to August, and now Samsung has a new big phone: the Note20 Ultra. And as our review makes clear from the outset, Samsung has fixed basically every big issue that made the S20 Ultra so "meh," all while making the Note $100 cheaper than its Galaxy S counterpart. In short, there's simply no reason to buy a Galaxy S20 Ultra when the Note20 Ultra exists.
