From @LAwLz in the comments:

Some great news that might deserve its own thread!

 

Samsung has promises "3 generations of updates"! The last couple of generations Samsung devices have only gotten 2 "generations of updates", and then 1 year of security updates. This essentially means that Samsung phones will essentially match Google's Pixel line in terms of support, which is really good (but a far cry from Apple's support). The reason for using "generations" rather than year is apparently because Android update release can change a few months in either direction, and they don't want to end up in a situation where a big Android update gets released like the month after the 3 year period is up.

 

Samsung have confirmed that this new "3 generation of updates" policy will apply to their S series, Note series and Z series, while their other lineups such as the A series will get support "until hardware allows" which probably means until Qualcomm drops support (don't expect more than 2 generations).

 

This change in policy applies to the Galaxy S10 series and later.

Thoughts:

 I am excited to see the reviews of the Fold2. Hopefully they fixed all their issues and have a good device this time around. Also, the Note20 Ultra seems overpriced to me. Even Apple starts the pricing of their highest end phone at $1099 not $1299. $300 increase for a slightly bigger phone and a few other small changes does not seem worth it at all to me. If you think I missed anything, please let me know and I will make the changes.

The Note 20 (non-Ultra) sure is a massive disappointment.

60Hz screen

Low resolution

No upgrade to the SoC in the Exynos version.

No expandable storage.

No new S-pen.

 

 

It feels more like a "Galaxy Note 20 lite". It's worse than the regular Galaxy S20 for crying out loud!

I was thinking, in 2014 i was really keen on the Note 4, because it had a 4K screen, but now this upgrade doesn’t? I thought it was like a standard for the Note series.

I don't mind the back cover being polycarbonite, glass is more prone to breaking, can be slippery without a case, and looks like crap unless you constantly wipe it off. Also the back cover being plastic would mean easier DIY battery replacement.

Although no expandable storage and no headphone jack really ruins it for me.

The last 2 are why I'm keeping my s9 for a few more years.  When this notch and the lies about why no jack are over I'll upgrade.  The reality is they're trying to profit off the everso craptastic BT.

Even worse is during the show they made it seem like both had 120hz displays (which I put on here originally). It wasn’t until someone commented here and I saw some reviews that I realized and changed it.

So you're never upgrading again, basically?

 

I doubt you're going to get a confession (although I'd note that space saving is a concern, too), let alone get Samsung to have a change of heart about removing the jack.

 

This reminds me of the people who've crossed their arms and harumphed while waiting for the return of the removable battery, physical keyboards, truly small smartphones... sorry, but it's a battle you'll never win. Unless there's a large-scale revolt over a design, which very rarely happens, sales rarely dip sharply enough to prompt a return to a feature once it's gone. The only reason phones like the Pixel 4a still have a headphone jack is that they're aimed at markets where Bluetooth isn't realistic (at least, not yet).

Well, I'm aware there are other options at the moment.   But, there are also phones better than most flagships when it comes to that kind of audio.   LG, for example, has put a dac in phones.   But, a lot of these "trends" are pissing people off and companies are backpedaling/toning it down at the same time.

Imo, Samsung should just abandon Android for their tablets and just use Chrome OS just for the fact that 2020 Chrome OS devices will received eight years of guaranteed software updates.

I thought about getting the Note20 Ultra, but then I saw the price and, in Canada at least, carriers have gotten into the habit of gouging. Their MSRP for the Note20 Ultra is $2,200...$400 higher than it costs to buy it directly from Samsung, and Samsung throws in a pair of Galaxy Buds+. Worst part is the carriers throw up a "save $400!" sign on their phones trying to make it seem like a good deal, when really, they're giving it to you at the regular price. It's pathetic. If it was $1,200, I might have considered it.

 

I wish Samsung would do a lot more towards battery optimization. Their efforts seem to be to make it "good enough", and then we have companies like OnePlus coming in and absolutely crushing them at it. That's the one thing that truly bothers me about Samsung devices. Instead of putting in effort, they add a newer, better panel...but come on. Imagine how much better it could be Samsung. Try harder.

 

Instead, I think I'll probably go for the S20 Plus in the Fall if it goes on sale, or perhaps the large Pixel that's rumored will catch my eye.

I wonder how the battery life, performance and cameras compare between the Snapdragon GN20 (US, Canada, South Korea) and the Exynos GN20 (the rest of the world). 

 

The Note20s both get the SD865+...and IIRC the Exynos is still the carried over version from the S20 line up. So, it'll be significantly be hind performance wise, and one could assume battery wise as well.

When Samsung released the Note 10 last year with the downgraded specs (1080p, no SD card slot, etc), I thought it was a good idea to sell a cheaper model with less specs for people who aren't hardcore, but want the S-Pen. I picked up a Note 10 on a 50% off promotion through T-Mobile back in November and I'm honestly happy with it. It's not a bad phone.

 

The Note 20, on the other, at $999 is not worth it. 

 

I just can't believe they're dropping back to 128GB as the base storage after putting 256GB in the Note 10/10+.

 

The Note 20 isn't a bad phone, it's just not worth $999.

 

I was looking at the Note 20, but I just can't justify paying that much for a phone that that has half the storage of what I have now, and the Ultra is to expensive for me.

 

I'm thinking about selling my Note 10 and just making a sideways jump to the 10+ now that Samsung is extending OS support to three years.

I didn't say it was dead. I said it's not coming back to devices it leaves, and it isn't. The number of people that care about the headphone jack just isn't that high.

Do you have stats to back that, or is this just another monkey see monkey do?

I can name several that it's left and hasn't returned. Can you name a single one that got rid of it, and brought it back?
