I did the update this morning, I honestly can't tell the difference. LOL

I'm using the ESR clear kickstand case. I have to showoff the bronze.

I noticed as of few days ago, the weather app is showing advertisements at the top...

I've never used Samsung's weather app, always either Google weather or for more accuracy Overdrop since Dark Sky got pulled thanks to Apple.

I've definitely started noticing ads elsewhere in Samsung's app like S Health, Galaxy Store, Members app, etc.

That combined with the fact my main speaker keeps stopping to work is really getting annoying on such a goddamn expensive phone.

I am proud new owner of this phone, the Ultra. You guys don't articulate just how spectacular this phone really is. Coming from an S9 plus.

Congrats!

You're going to love and hate it at times but it's definitely going to prove being worth it.

I am just thrilled to have a phone that fits using one hand, but is nice and big. The S9 plus was nice, but the sides of my hands kept hitting the bloody screen, messing up whatever I was doing. This fits like a glove. Text almost jumps off the screen, and I am pretty sure the ol S9 wasn't a slouch either.

Got some great tips from here already. 120Hz, thats a nice. What a difference, and I didn't think it would be one, being a computer gamer with gaming monitors. Boy was I wrong.

That's funny that you say the S9 was too big and you were hitting the sides of the screen, I find that happens often with the curved edges of the Note20U.

Too small, I found it too small for sitting in my palm without my fat hands hitting the curve of the screen and messing up whatever I was doing

There was on Black Friday... $1555 if I remember right, on Samsung's site, with 0%/36mo financing still available. Might be similar around Christmas.
