On this Samsung S20 Ultra series as well, there are no more 3.5mm audio jacks and users will be given earphones that use a USB-C connection. With this Samsung officially no longer includes audio jacks on all of their flagship devices after doing so on the Note 10 years ago. This is not surprising as it has been a trend for the past three years.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra brings a slightly larger design but much thicker than the Note 10+. As a result we took a few days to get used to using it comfortably. What makes it less comfortable is because of the unbalanced weight distribution. The device is heavier at the top due to the bulge as well as the enormous camera mechanism.

It’s impossible not to talk about the S20 Ultra’s enormous gadget camera bulge. It’s almost twice as big as what can be seen on the S20 and S20+. This large size is used because of the complex periscope mechanism used. As a result it is impossible to place the device flat on the table surface.
But the biggest problem is the fingers that often block the camera lens because of its different position compared to previous Samsung devices. The way the device is held to take pictures needs to be changed when using the S20 Ultra. This problem is similar to what happened when we reviewed the Mate 20 Pro and Mate 30 Pro which also have large camera modules. This is the reason why the majority of devices on the market place the camera module in the upper right corner to prevent fingers blocking the lens.
Samsung provides a soft translucent frame that relieves worries if the device is dropped. Logically if you spend almost RM5000 for a smartphone, you also buy a durable frame. The combination of large screen size, giant glass panels; prominent camera glass bulges and heavy devices only increases the likelihood of damage occurring if it falls without any frame.
