Ok i received my Supero Note 20 ultra 5g, with the snapdragon CPU. its an N9860 model. all well and smooth, except for a bunch of issues with 2 Degrees which im not sure is sim related or device related. first of all the 2degrees 4G doesnt work. it shows as 4g connected and full signal, but no internet. I reset the network settings and it worked for a few mins, then gone again.
Second issue with 2 degrees, every SMS i send, the recipient receives it about 10 times. wt*!
My vodafone sim which sits in the 2nd sim slot has no issues whatsover and everything works fine with it!
Im going to get a new sim from 2degrees tomorrow and see if it might have been a sim card issue! but the same sim card was working perfectly fine in my exynos note 20 ultra.
WT*s all around!
oh no what a huge dissapointment. let us know if the new sim fixed the issue. keen to know what might be the issue. worst case you might have to back all photos data and then reformat the note 20
The 2degrees issue persisted even with new sim. However it was location based. In some areas my Internet and sms worked fine, in other areas it was messed up. Not sure whether it is an incompatibility between the n9860 model and 2degrees, or whether I have a faulty unit or what. But I ended up switching to Vodafone and it is working perfectly fine now.
The 5G doesn't work in nz on the n9860 model even though all the correct bands are supported, as the device needs to be certified fed in nz.
Overall probably not worth importing the snapdragon model, only thing you really gain is a bit better battery life, while you lose 5g (at least for now).
