While the general design language is similar on both phones, with the same combination of glass and metal materials, each phone bears a unique hardware differentiator. Of course, with the Note 20 Ultra, that's the S Pen, which has received a bevy of new software tweaks that allow you to operate the phone in more ways wirelessly.

Last summer, CNET held a massive speed test of 5G networks around the world, spanning from Chicago to London to Sydney to Seoul. The results were a mix of ludicrous speeds, but limited range and spotty coverage. Conversely, you would see wider coverage with a modest bump in speed. You also saw devices like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G roll out. The early generation of 5G phones boasted impressive speeds at times, but we cautioned against buying them because of compatibility issues and other problems that arise with new technology. … [Read more...] about 5G: Everything you need to know about the wireless revolution
