Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra review: Big, Beefy and Bombastic/Bougie

Samsung's Galaxy S20 Ultra is a lot of phone. Even in the era of large smartphones this feels like a massive device, but at least Samsung makes good use of the space, packing it with a 5G modem, Snapdragon 865 processor, 120hz OLED screen, a giant 5,000mAh battery, and a trio of cameras. Those cameras are really the device's flagship feature, boasting one sensor with 108MP of resolution, the ability to zoom up to 100x, and 8K video capture. Unfortunately, the camera's features are more impressive than the reality, with the resulting photos looking good, but generally not better than what the Pixel 4 or iPhone 11 can capture. The zoom is also impressive in concept, but you'll want to see the quality for yourself before you drop $1,400 for this mammoth phone.
