Google Pay is mysteriously not working on some Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra handsets

Google Pay is mysteriously not working on some Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra handsets

Samsung Pay is a big perk of ownership for Samsung's phones. The MST-based system on most of the company's phones works with plenty of card readers that don't actually support contactless payments, and that's especially handy these days. There's not a whole lot of reason to give it up, but if you do want or need to switch to Google Pay and you're using a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, you might run into some trouble.

Note20 Ultra owners experience screen burn-in with official Samsung case

Note20 Ultra owners experience screen burn-in with official Samsung case

Samsung released the Note20 Ultra earlier this summer, and by almost all accounts, it's a great phone. Not everything is hunky-dory in Note20 land, however. One of the many neat case options for Note20 Ultra is Samsung's S-View Flip Cover, which allows for quick access to common functions without opening the cover and viewing the entire phone screen. While it sounds good in theory, it seems like the accessory might be causing more damage than it's worth.

Camera shootout: Galaxy Note20 Ultra vs. Pixel 4a

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's Care+ protection plan can't be added to the Galaxy Note20 post-purchase

Samsung's Care+ protection plan can't be added to the Galaxy Note20 post-purchase

Samsung's flagships have never been cheap, but even base prices are now eclipsing the four-figure mark. It's no surprise, then, that customers often opt for the company's Care+ protection plan for a few dollars a month. Unfortunately, Note20 buyers are finding that they're unable to add Care+ after they've purchased the phone.

Five changes we would make to the Galaxy Note20 Ultra

Five changes we would make to the Galaxy Note20 Ultra

The Galaxy Note20 Ultra is undeniably an excellent phone, but like almost any product, there's still plenty of room for improvement; namely, the price is sky-high, its size poses usability issues, and we have some more subjective input we'd provide about features and design that would just make it a better phone in our eyes. At $1300, Samsung should be throwing in everything and the kitchen sink, so consider this our "kitchen sink" Galaxy Note20 Ultra wish list.

Samsung is shipping the Galaxy Note20 Ultra with two different cooling systems

Samsung introduced a pretty cool-sounding liquid cooling system with the Galaxy S7, and it's been using that ever since. However, an iFixit teardown recently revealed that Samsung is actually shipping Note20 Ultra units with two types of cooling systems: one being the liquid cooling (or, more accurately, the copper vapor chamber system), and the other being graphite thermal pads.
