- Nutrition: One very important thing that you forgot to mention is that Note 20 is the last Samsung mobile phone that supports MST payment technology, which allows you to use the mobile phone with any payment terminal by simulating magnetic stripe card transactions, whether it is or not Support Google Pay.
- Angela Roman: If I don’t have to zoom in too much, I will always use it to shoot my hiking and other videos because the stabilization function is great. I finally figured out how to use the yellow frame to better focus; especially the zoom, so I am very satisfied. With the Pany ZS 70 that I usually use, I usually have to use Filmmora to stabilize the video. I also like the expandable storage space, and having that pen is a big advantage. I very much agree with this review article one year later, pros and cons. The question I always ask when thinking about products, I will buy again… Yes!
- Tony’s Texas Hot: I received it when I first came out last year. It is still an excellent phone. I have been using S-pen and hate that companies are moving away from expandable storage and have big hands. This is the perfect phone for me! Is it suitable for everyone? of course not. But a year later, I think it is still one of the absolute best phones you can buy and it is worth considering.
- Yaddy: Keep my Ultra 20. It’s a great phone. I love it with a pen. The picture quality of video calls is great…
