It ' s also worth noting that the Galaxy S 20 Ultra will be set to 60Hz out of the box, so battery life The Galaxy S 20 Ultra has the best of what Samsung has to offer, but it doesn't come cheap. It also features a super-smooth 120Hz display along with the 100x Space Zoom for ultra up-close photos.

Samsung said it made the S 20 ' s sensors three times larger than those of the Galaxy S 10 to let in more light. Using 120Hz immediately took a battery toll on the Galaxy S 20 Ultra. Granted, I hit the phone hard with As for 5G, these faster speeds are known to drain battery reserves faster than 4G, but

The Galaxy S20 series is available for preorder in several markets, and you can already test it out in stores, if you need hands-on experience with a new phone before buying it. That means you can feel for yourself the new design, test the cameras, and check out the 120Hz refresh rate, a signature Galaxy S20 feature that should make improve your entire Android experience. What you won’t be able to see in stores is battery life, and, specifically, whether the 120Hz screen will have a significant impact on it. Others, however, were able to put the S20 through battery tests, and the first Galaxy S20 Ultra battery tests are already here. Yes, the 120Hz screen will consume a lot of battery juice, but you shouldn’t even worry about it.

Samsung announces Galaxy Buds Plus earbuds with huge boost to battery life

  Samsung announces Galaxy Buds Plus earbuds with huge boost to battery life Same design, but much better battery life and soundSpecs for the Galaxy Buds Plus were leaked ahead of Samsung’s Unpacked event and revealed that the latest model makes impressive strides in battery life. They can last for up to 11 hours on a single charge, and the charging case extends that to 22 hours before everything needs to be juiced back up. In situations where the buds are completely dead, charging them for just three minutes over USB-C will get you an hour of playing time.

The S20 Ultra with the screen set at the default 60Hz lasted nearly 12 hours in Tom’s Guide test, while the 120Hz S20 Ultra died after nine hours and 13 minutes. The blog used exactly the same test for both scenarios:

We put the Galaxy S20 Ultra through our battery test four times, which involves continuous web surfing over cellular (in this case T-Mobile 5G) at 150 nits of screen brightness. Two of the tests were run with the display set to 60Hz mode, and two were in 120Hz mode.

Yes, we’re looking at a difference in battery life of more than three hours, but 9:13 hours of battery life is still amazing. Let’s not forget the Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with a huge 5,000 mAh battery under the hood, which supports 45W fast charging. There’s no point in denying yourself that 120Hz experience to save battery life. A few minutes of charging the phone will be enough for it to last you through the day. And if you have wireless charging pads at home or at the office, you can use those to top the battery up whenever you’re not using the device.

Galaxy S20 will get a surprising display upgrade after its release

  Galaxy S20 will get a surprising display upgrade after its release From games to operating systems to smartphones, a product doesn't launch when it's complete, but rather when it's ready for public consumption. Every game needs a day-one patch, every operating system gets multiple vital updates, and now even phones are launching with missing features that vendors can add later via software updates. According to a new leak, that's exactly what Samsung has planned for the Galaxy S20 series. One of the moreOne of the more exciting additions to the Galaxy S20 lineup was higher refresh rates — the S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra are all capable of boosting their refresh rates from 60Hz to 120Hz.

If the battery threatens to drain before the end of the day, quickly recharging it is the next best thing. To avoid a complete discharge, a battery ' s management system includes safety features that power down a phone when it reaches an energy level safely above empty.

The Galaxy S 10 is still a terrific phone, even as it prepares to be outclassed by the next generation. Battery life is a tad shorter (just over 18 hours in our looping video drain test versus 21 on the Plus). For more details on the Galaxy S 10' s individual features , read my Galaxy S 10 Plus review.

If you really need to save battery at all costs, you can always switch to 60Hz, and only use the 120Hz setting for certain content, like while you’re playing games or browsing the web.

The smaller Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ aren’t included in this test, but both devices support 120Hz panels. They have smaller batteries, however, at 4,000 mAh, and 4,500 mAh, respectively, and both only support 25W fast charging. They also feature smaller displays than the Ultra, which means you shouldn’t expect the same battery usage difference between 60Hz and 120Hz. But everything I said about the Ultra still applies to the S20. You should get more than decent battery life from the phones without having to sacrifice that 120Hz experience.

Tom’s Guide test does explain why neither S20 version supports 120Hz at max resolution, and why you have to settle for Full HD if you want 120Hz: battery life would probably take an even bigger hit. But Samsung is supposedly considering adding a Quad HD+ 120Hz mode to the S20 series in the future.

Galaxy S20 Ultra 100x zoom camera samples show how amazing the feature can be .
The best model in Samsung's new flagship lineup is the Galaxy S20 Ultra, a device that starts at $1,399. For that price, however, you get the same design and core specs as the other S20 models in a much bigger package. The larger screen and battery size and the faster charging aren’t the most exciting features of the Ultra, though, because the handset has a unique camera system that features a 108-megapixel primary camera, and a 48-megapixel telephoto lens that supports up to 100x Super Resolution Zoom.
