You shouldn't buy a Galaxy S20 Ultra anymore — for one simple reason

The Galaxy S20 Ultra was never a phone we loved.

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.
