Since the Galaxy Note 20 5G is going to cost a whopping $1000 you might be wondering if its worth buying. Truthfully I am a fan boy when it comes to the Note Series. I have owned every single one of these phones going all the way back to the first Galaxy Note. The good news is that Samsung definitely stepped there game up on this one, and this could be the best phone to come out this year.
The Galaxy Note 20 5G has a massive 6.7 inch Super AMOLED Plus display. It has gorilla glass 5 which makes the phone pretty scratch proof. Watching video on this phone is incredible, and I really mean that. Whether you want to catch up on a Netflix series, or watch a Youtube video the video quality is insane. The phones screen resolution is 1080 x 2400 pixels.

If your wondering if the Galaxy Note 20 5G is worth buying based on its design you might be a bit thrown off on what I am about to tell you. Samsung decided to give this phone a plastic backing of which they are calling “glastic”. Yes that might be a new word but the benefit to this phone not being all glass is that it’s not likely to crack if dropped from a small distance. I also think the phone feels quite nice to hold one handed. It’s also IP68 dust/water resistant.

Spending $1000 dollars on a phone might be justified by how good the Note 20’s camera is. Samsung is known for having some of the best quality camera phones that put Apple to shame. The back camera on the Note 20 has a triple lens 64mp telephoto zoom, and uses hybrid optical zoom. On the flip side the selfie camera is 10mp. Its highest video recording mode is 8K@24fps. The only downside is that the phone has storage of 128gb which might fill quickly if you record video in that format.

Processor & Sound Quality
The Note 20 5G has a Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865+ processor that is very freaking fast. The phone can load just about any high graphic game instantly. Any type of lag is literally non existent. The phone also comes with built in stereo sound speakers powered by AKG.

Dishing out $1000 on a phone is a pretty big financial commitment. However I truly believe the Galaxy Note 20 5G is worth buying. Yes it would be a big purchase for anyone, but it could also be looked at as an investment. If you take pictures or record a lot of video this phone raises the bar. It will likely be a phone that will stay relevant for at-least the next 3-4 years. You can check out the latest pricing on it by clicking here.
