Camera shootout: Galaxy Note20 Ultra vs. Pixel 4a

The Google Pixel 4a and Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra launched within a few weeks of each other, but they could not be more different Android phones. The Note20 Ultra is a humongous beast of a phone with all the latest and greatest hardware and an unsurprising $1,300 price tag. The Pixel 4a is smaller, less powerful, and only costs $350. And yet, Google's camera processing is so good that it can clobber phones that cost several times more. Is the Note20 Ultra one of them? Well, it depends on what you want out of a phone camera, but there is not a $1,000 gap in photo quality here.

Samsung Internet vs Google Chrome: Should you switch?

Google Chrome is by default, both literally and figuratively, the web browser of choice on most Android devices. But there are other browsers out there, and one that you may not have bothered blinking at if you don't own a Samsung smartphone is Samsung Internet. "A Samsung browser? No thanks" you might think, but we wouldn't be quick to jerk our knees. While Samsung isn't exactly known for its world-beating software applications, this browser is an odd bright spot in the company's portfolio of also-ran mobile apps.

Samsung Internet has some unique and compelling features that could just get you to switch, provided you're not completely married to Chrome for things like password management.

Galaxy Note20 Ultra long-term review: A (physically) massive success

The Galaxy Note is an unusual smartphone for one reason, and one reason only in 2020: its stylus, the beloved S Pen. And while everything else about it feels incredibly familiar, it's impossible to deny that no other phone can scratch the very particular itch Samsung does with the Note.
