Hundreds of new Galaxy Note 20 issues are reported on Samsung’s support forums regarding several camera defects with their phones. The consistent reports, as well as the circumstantial evidence, indicate Samsung has a bad lot on its supply chain. There have been over a hundred complaints of visible camera module gaps on the back of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. And some early users even reported dust particles and condensation droplets on rear glass panel covering its triple camera setup.
Both issues mean there are some wrongly assembled devices, but Samsung has yet to admit to any severe issues with the first Galaxy Note 20 Ultra batch. In a statement to local media in South Korea, a company official says minor water condensation effects, aren’t evidence of a manufacturing defect and do not impact functionality. Samsung is currently reviewing the reports, but if you do not plan on waiting, you can always check out if you’re eligible for a proactive warranty replacement.
We have published Samsung’s official statement below:
“Samsung is committed to ensuring consumer’s satisfaction and optimal experience on Galaxy devices. Recently, there have been a limited number of reports of fog build-up inside the cameras of Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.”
“As with reading glasses and other glass objects, condensation can occur in water-resistant smartphones when they are exposed to a sudden temperature change.”
Samsung’s phones recently have an inconsistent track record. The Samsung Galaxy Fold was delayed for few months due to durability issues. And the Galaxy S20 Ultra had one or two cases of shattering camera bumps, but not like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s major problems.
the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7? History repeating???
The Galaxy Note 7 had a problem with its battery catching fire, sparking major recalls before the issue was fixed. It became a widespread event even for people who aren’t smartphone fans.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra issues are no where near as severe, and you shouldn’t worry much. In fact, many analysts recommend picking up the phone.
According to the Sammobile report, around 100+ people have mentioned issues with their phone. That’s compared to an estimated 780,000 models of the phone pre-ordered in the region. According to another Sammobile story. So even if we were going to generously say 200 people had suffered from the issue. Assuming some stayed silent or didn’t notice it, that’s just 0.25% of units that are breaking.
At the time of writing, the phone has only been for some days, so we are certain that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 issue is just a small phenomenon.
Samsung note 20 issue of battery drainage
Some users have complaint about the battery too.
dojodanfrost writes “Having terrible battery drain when the phone is not even in use and no background apps. My note 10 plus never had this issue. Last night I went to bed with 26 percent at 10 pm and at 6am this morning the phone was dead”
Another user Muneeb3 says “I have noticed this too! My Note 10 plus had longer battery life. The note 20 ultra is rubbish for the price. I prefer my note 10 plus. Hence, why I am returning it.”
The user GingerRenegade comments “I to have been having terrible experiences with the battery life. My note 9 lasted 2 times longer and my 11 pro max was easily 5 times longer. My note 20 within a hour of full charge im down to 80%. Hopefully software updates fix this issue. I mostly just use Facebook and Pokémon go for a couple of minutes. Also the battery draind like crazy even with screen off.”
Note 20 Issues Aside??
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is ahead of the curve in many ways, and you’ll definitely notice much more Pros than Cons. It seems “irresistible” in the first impressions. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G deserves credit for making life easier for users. And also for inspiring them to seek and achieve more on the personal fronts.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is one of the most exclusive smartphones that have launched this year. It features the most exclusive designs, a beautiful and tall display, a promising camera, and the S Pen experience.
However, the Exynos 990-powered Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is underpowered when it comes to performance, and that can be a big NO for users who want to game. The Exynos Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is only best choice for someone looking for a premium design, display, and productivity experience.
That is why I cannot recommend it to everyone. This in no way implies that Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is a bad phone — it is not! It is simply not the best smartphone if you want to impress your fellows during a board meeting. Or earn a chicken dinner after a tiring day at work.
