|SIM SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) is a small card that contains mobile network subscriber's account information. This allows the phone using the card to attach to a mobile network. The SIM card is most commonly associated with GSM and UMTS mobile networks. Moving a SIM card from one phone to another allows a subscriber to switch mobile phones without having to contact their mobile network carrier. SIM cards can also be used by a phone to store limited amounts of data, such as phone numbers and text messages.

|Display Colors Display Colors is refers to the number of different shades of colors that the screen is capable of displaying => 64K colors, 256K colors and 16 million colors, Obviously 16M is highest available range of colors and better than others.
|Pixel Density Pixel Density (PPI) is refers to the concentration of pixels on a particular display, measured in pixels per inch (ppi). Pixel density is calculated by dividing the diagonal pixel resolution of a display by its diagonal size, higher pixel density better display quality.
|Display Protection Display Protection => Gorilla Glass is a special alkali-aluminosilicate glass shield with exceptional damage resistance that helps protect mobile displays from scratches, drops, and bumps of everyday use, It is always better to go for a smartphone with Gorilla Glass for that added protection and peace of mind.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra - User Opinions and Reviews
Samsung premium range is crowned as the best of all the Samsung Galaxy S20 presented by the firm at its Unpacked event in February 2020. This S20 Ultra arrives with the screen and camera as its main weapons against the competition, but they are not the only features that we can highlight from the mobile.
For example, the phone aims to be one of the best performance in 2020, not only thanks to its Exynos 990 processor again come with 5G connectivity, but also to its 12 and 16 GB of RAM and storage capacity of reaching 128,256, and 512 GB To this is added a battery of 5,000 mAh with fast charging 45W, wireless and reversible.
In the data sheet of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra we review each and every one of the keys that aims to become the best phone of 2020.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Display
What stands out most about the phone at a first glance is, without a doubt, its screen. And although it fails to reach 7 inches, it stays at a size of 6.9″ which makes it a fairly large smartphone. Despite its almost total elimination of the edges of the display allow a good grip and make the smartphone, with a 20: 9 aspect ratio, one of the best phones of the year for the consumption of multimedia content.
And this Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O screen with a hole in the upper area to accommodate the front camera (40 MP resolution and aperture f / 2.2, no less), boasts a WQHD + resolution of 3200 x 1440 that ends up generating a density of 511 dpi. Of course, it has the same refresh rate that we find in its 120 Hz little brothers to make the transmission of content on the screen smoother.
With HDR10 + certification, it has Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection, as well as support for 16 million colors and captive touch technology. Just under the glass of this panel we find the fingerprint reader to unlock the device.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Chipset
No change at this point compared to the rest of the Galaxy S20 presented in February 2020. The Exynos 990, equipped with NPU and 5G modem is responsible for making the Galaxy S20 Ultra one of the best performing phones of the year. It is an 8-core chipset manufactured in a 7nm process that reaches a speed of up to 2.73 GHz.
This CPU is flanked by a next-generation Mali G77 MP11 GPU that is capable of supporting any type of graphic processing, however demanding it may be.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Memory
The smartphone releases LPDDR5 memory, reaching 6.4Gbps speed, making it almost twice as fast as those used in smartphones last year. Storage, on the other hand, has the latest UFS 3.0 technology.
In terms of configuration, we have models with 12 and 16 GB of RAM while storage ranges from 128 GB of the base model to 512 of the top of the range. Both support expansion through Micro TB cards of 1 TB so if you buy the one with the most internal memory, adding the memory card would have a total space of 1.5 GB.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Camera
Along with the screen, the strong point of Samsung’s smartphone. It is a component similar to the Plus model but with slight differences, especially in the telephoto lens and, of course, in the main lens.
All those camera sensors of the Galaxy S20 Ultra also come together in a rectangular module. On the one hand, we have a 108 MP sensor (main) with ƒ / 1.8 equipped with OIS and with the ability to record video in 8K at 30 fps. It is followed by a 12 MP sensor (wide angle) with ƒ / 2.2, a 48 MP sensor (telephoto) with ƒ / 3.5 and the ability to “play” with a 10X optical and 100X digital hybrid zoom, accompanied by an OIS. Finally, we have a DepthVision sensor that allows us to adjust the blur of the photographs.
The viewing angle options that the Samsung application allows us, thanks to these sensors are 0.5X, 1X, 2X, 10X, 20X, 30X and 100X Zoom. Of course, we can choose whether to capture the images in Raw or Jpg.
With regard to the selfie camera, located in the perforation that is located in the center of the top of the screen, it features a 40 MP sensor with f / 2.2 aperture and a pixel size of 0.7 microns.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Battery
Since it is the phone that has more screen size, it is logical that the brand has mounted a battery of greater capacity than in the other members of the S20 family.
In the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, we have a battery of 5,000 mAh capacity that should be more than enough to keep the phone on for more than 48 hours under normal use. However, the firm has not yet informed us of the autonomy data offered by this cell in the 6.9-inch smartphone.
What we do know is that, how could it be otherwise, we can charge it in just two hours thanks to the 45W fast charging technology present in the equipment. Of course, there are also present, the classic Samsung, wireless and reversible charging technologies to provide power to other devices.
