    Pricier, and no headphone jack. Hmmmm.

    Might be worth it for the 45,000mAh model though

    Not at that price. If the ultra has 8k with 108mp camera, they should include all base models at 256GB memory as space will get used up in a flash (no pun intended). Shooting 8k in a SD card may lead to bandwidth issues unless you opt for high speed cards which is an additional expense.

    Also considering the depreciation on the phones, I'd like to get one, but will have to wait for a price drop, £1,400 for the 512gb ultra is definitely out of reach...

    Hole in the screen of every single model. Massive missed opportunity, makes phones that could have been a nice upgrade just uninteresting.

    Maybe next year we'll get phones with full screens again, fingers crossed.

    I only wondered, because some friends (and their parents) have just got "the latest Samsung phones", and they're all S10s...

    Re: Samsung launches the Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra

    My S10+ is like new and I do use the 3.5 jack, so I think I'll pass on this one.
    The new features and improvements look ok but are not such a big improvement that it actually makes me to want it. Not to mention the lack of a white model.

    Erm wrong. S20 in the UK has Snapdragon as have the last 3-4 flagship phones. Only in some other countries do the use Exynos and they've cut back on dev for them too

    S10, S10+, S10E, S105G..... Note10 with all the same suffixes... M10... Folds... a bunch of As... and an Xcover, apparently. Hmm. Good for them.

    But I've only heard of the S and the Note, which kinda seem the same to me. Since I'm not a phone geek with stupid amounts of money to burn, but these people are, if they tell me their S10 is "the latest" I have to assume that means Samsung's most recent and also their bestest phone, like, ever ever ever..... I don't know of anyone who hasn't bought a flagship phone, aside from my wife.
