With so many leaks (Feb 11 Unpacked event, full specs and renders) easily found is anyone else super keen on the Ultra. I would expect NZ pricing will be eye-watering. But the Ultra could just be the phone to get me back in the Samsung camp. I have a huge phone (Huawei Mate 20 at 6.53) and the Ultra is bigger so this makes it better right? Its been the aspect ratio that's been the annoying thing for me with most long and narrow. The plus specs are similar to my current phone but the Ultras are soooooo good I am very tempted.

 

Good summary here from Android police

Maybe this thread should be S11/S20 announcement and owners' thread?

I am hearing murmurs that Asian market phones may get the Snapdragon over the Exynos this time round...though I am sure this has been mooted before and never appeared. Fingers crossed anyway that we get the better CPU in NZ this time round.

 

I have an S10+ currently which was my return from Apple to Android after about 6 years with the former. I have the 12 month upgrade option on my current plan so may well be getting an S20+ or even ultra if the camera is worth it.

Def keen on the S20 series but not sure if the Mrs would approve me getting one if she knew I am provided with a Note 10 from work in Feb. Unfortunate timing...

LOL I meant when 4g coverage at the point where its Inferior to 5g coverage. Not speed, just coverage. I bought a new phone when I realised I was getting no Internet when wife's phone had full bars.

Not really the S10 and S10+ launched at $1499 and $1699

 

 

 

Just wait 3 months and they'll be discounted anyway

don't debate. wait for 5g deployment (inc specific bandwaves for your carrier) then see what your choices are.

 

i'm afraid buying now could mean an obsolete phone as soon as 5g is switched on.

After three successive Galaxy phones, Samsung have lost me for my next purchase. No more compact sizing from Samsung, looks like iPhone's rumoured upcoming 5.4" entry level phone will see me moving across to iOS.

First impressions

Looks like a considerable boost in specs but nothing we already knew, I’m not a fan of these $2K+ price tags though, at that price I’m more inclined to not be an early adopter and would upgrade every 2-3 years now if I was a launch day buyer, especially considering androids always take huge hits on resale value and the fact we will see some big price cut specials in a few months to probably move units.

Roll on the the pre order bundles.
