The Galaxy series alone is subdivided into five major sub-sequences: The A-series, M series, S series, Z series, and Note series. In addition, with the addition of the Samsung W series, there are a total of six product series. Today’s topic revolves around Note20 Ultra vs Huawei P40 Pro vs OPPO Find X2 Pro vis-a-vis how to choose the most suitable one for your need.
According to data released by IDC, in the second quarter of 2020, global shipments of Huawei mobile phones reached 55.8 million units, ranking first with a 20% market share, surpassing Samsung for the first time.
It can be seen that Samsung’s global influence is ushering in an “inflection point”. If Samsung gets its game right, it can regain the number one in the future. Otherwise, it can’t be ruled out that it will fall even further.
A Run-Through of Samsung Note20 Ultra
In this context, the new product release date of the Samsung galaxy note series in 2020 is two days earlier than last year.
On August 5, 2020, Samsung took the lead to release the flagship phones Samsung Note20 and Samsung Note20 ultra for the second half of the year overseas. At the same time, it is expected that on August 13, 2020, these two new products will be launched in China.
The Samsung Note20, the basic version of the two machines released by Samsung this time, has caused a lot of controversies.
Most noticeably, because of the plastic material used on the back cover and the front screen resolution is only 1080p, the refresh rate is only 60Hz, but the price has huge compared to what it has to offer. Many users complained about the unkindness of this sale.
It can be said that the price of Samsung Note20 released this time is seriously inconsistent with the product. People even accuse Samsung of trying to exploit their consumers.
However, Samsung Note20 Ultra still has a lot of points to prove. So, we compare Samsung Note20 Ultra, Huawei P40 Pro, and OPPO Find X2 Pro, to know which is the best high-end device and most suitable for consumer power users. This is a product with a price of nearly $1400.

Among them, the Snapdragon 865+ processor adopts a 7nm process and A77 architecture. Compared with the previous generation, the performance of the CPU and GPU is increased by 10%, and the highest frequency reaches 3.1Hz.
GeekBench single-core running points 4556, multi-core running points 13,400. AnTuTu scored 640,000 points. It can run perfectly for current large-scale games. Kirin 990 uses a 7nm process, GeekBench single-core running points 3842 points, multi-core running points 11644 points. AnTuTu scored 480,000 points.

Comparing the Appearance and Design of Note20 Ultra, Huawei P40Pro, and OPPO Find X2 Pro
Note: Coincidentally, all 3 phones adopt the “perforated screen + curved screen” combination design
As a flagship machine, especially a high-end flagship machine, the curved screen has become a well-deserved standard configuration.
In order to make the phone more textured overall, manufacturers will also be more attentive to the glass material of the back cover. This time, the 7th generation Corning Gorilla Glass was first released on the back cover of Samsung Note20 Ultra. At the same time, the body of different colors has also undergone different processing techniques, and the texture is more advanced.
Overview of Galaxy Note20 Ultra Design
Specifically, the front of Samsung Note20 Ultra uses a 6.9-inch right-angle punched OLED curved screen. The screen resolution is 3200*1440. It Supports a 120Hz refresh rate.
Among them, the OLED screen uses LTPO material for the first time, which can dynamically adjust the frame rate, and the frame rate can be reduced to one frame in a static state. In this way, battery life can be greatly extended even with a high refresh rate. The four corners are right angles the same as note10.
The unique S-pen of Samsung Note20 Ultra is placed in the lower-left corner of the phone. The color scheme of the Spen is the same as that of the mobile phone. There are three types of mobile phones, black, white, and gold.
Of these colors, the black and white back cover is made of glossy glass, and the gold is made of frosted glass, which has a stronger metallic texture.
Huawei P40 Pro Design and Color Options
The front of Huawei P40Pro uses a 6.58-inch quad-curved screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. Because of the sides, curved surfaces are used on the top and bottom.
However, this has also greatly increased the screen-to-body ratio. Compared with the previous generation Huawei P30, the side frame of Huawei P40Pro is narrower and the visual effect is more appealing.
However, the large area of the camera on the front and back directly affects the overall appearance. It was sacrificed for the camera. In the color matching, the sky state of the previous generation is retained.
OPPO Find X2 Pro’s Design
OPPO Find X2 Pro uses a 6.7-inch OLED curved perforated screen on the front. The screen supports the 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. The screen contrast ratio is 5 million:
Also, the peak brightness is 1200nit. At the same time, the screen has obtained the same Display Mate A+ certification as OnePlus 7 Pro and iPhone Xs Max.
The back of the OPPO FindX2Pro is made of ceramic and plain leather. Although plain leather is not as good as glass, it is better than glass in anti-fingerprint. The cameras are arranged vertically.
On the whole, Samsung Note20Ultra, Huawei P40Pro, and OPPOFindX2Pro are all “high-profile” representatives in the currently listed mobile phones.
Note20 Ultra vs Huawei P40 Pro vs OPPO Find X2 Pro: Battery Capacity & Others
In terms of battery life, Samsung Note20 Ultra has a battery capacity of 4500mAh, Huawei P40Pro has a battery capacity of 4200mAh, and OPPO FindX2Pro has a battery capacity of 4260mAh.
Samsung officially claims that this is Samsung’s largest battery capacity so far. At the same time, the 4500mAh battery capacity is also the largest among these three mobile phones. For business people who often go out, it should fully support a day’s use.
- In terms of charging, Samsung Note20 Ultra has a charging power of 25w, and Samsung officially claims that it can be fully charged by 50% in 30 minutes.
- Huawei P40Pro uses 40W wired fast charging and 27W wireless fast charging.
- OPPOFindX2Pro uses 65w flash charging.
Obviously, Samsung Note20 Ultra is still being crushed by Chinese mobile phone manufacturers in terms of charging.
Storage options of the Three Phones in Review
- In terms of storage, Samsung Note20 Ultra offers two storage combinations of “12GB+256/512GB”.
- By contrast, Huawei P40 Pro has three storage versions of “8GB+128/256/512GB”.
- And, OPPO Find X2 Pro only provides a storage combination of “12GB+256GB”.
It can be seen that Samsung Note20Ultra can be called “very luxurious” on storage, and it is the top configuration of some flagship phones at the beginning.
Pricing Strategy of the Three Phones
In terms of pricing strategy, the same “12GB+256GB” version, Samsung Note20Ultra is priced at $1380, and OPPOFind X2Pro is priced at$1100. The top price of Huawei P40Pro is only $1150.
Therefore, Samsung Note20 Ultra continues its consistent “noble” pricing strategy.
Obviously, in terms of price, Samsung is enough to dissuade most ordinary users, so it mainly targets high net-worth users, which can basically be regarded as a kind of “luxury”.
It is worth mentioning that Samsung Note20 Ultra is undoubtedly the top in terms of screen and texture. It is a mobile phone tailored for current business people.
However, for business users, the Huawei Mate40 series should be available soon. Users who are not in a hurry can wait and see Huawei Mate40. For Samsung’s “iron powder”, buying is now.
