does this. It kinda replaces the AOD display with one you can customize a little more - it matches the default AOD, but ads a little more. If you make the AOD tap to wake, well, basically not always on, it'll wake the AOD display whenever you get a notification. And it'll create a faux LED light around the front camera. And you can have it light the edges of the display too.
If you're in the US, you can pick one of these up at any T-Mobile store.
GoTo Note 20 5g glass screen protector
I've been using one on my Note 20 5G since I got it at launch. S-Pen works great and the fingerprint reader does as well.
If you want one without the circle for the fingerprint reader, then go for this one.
I first used a glass protector when I purchased my Note 20 Ultra. I immediately noticed the blurred images and removed it. I then found and purchased this case and I'm very happy. Not only does it protect the camera lenses when not in use, it also doesn't wobble when the phone lays flat.
Give this app a try... it helps when I'm in a borderline 5G area
Samsung Band Selection Link to Google App Store
nope. just bought these : https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B014KKY3KI
Enokay 8 Pieces 14*12*5.5mm Cooling Copper Heatsink for Raspberry Pi VGA RAM Cooling Heatsinks Cooler
peeled the sticky tape off two of them, put them in the zerolemon case, turned it upside down, removed the phone and press fit them in.
works great. i can do 4K record for an hour or more without phone overheating.
I was wondering the same thing. I have been historically happy with whitestone glass protectors (outside of the cost... but ultimately the glass feel of the screen protector is worth it imo). I did see someone recommend these amfilm protectors as being on par or possibly better than whitestone? Looks like slow delivery right now in the states though.
No need for a Google Workspace account, just use an app like Shelter (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.typeblog.shelter). It'll set up a work profile for you. I use it for my work apps, and can switch the whole profile off with a tap of the Quick Settings tile.
Bonus: If your work requires an MDM with administrative access to remotely wipe your phone, it won't touch anything outside the work container.
It's a theme applied through #hex_, and the #hex theme is called #Hex Plugin - terpsichora_ for Samsung OneUI
The font is Sky Text. It was applied through Hex also.
i have this one
Its fits with my spigen case, with a good bit of room to spare.
The only thing about it i dont like is light. Its fairly bright, and can be annoying to look at when the phones not mounted.
I have this one and really like it. AmFilm Tempered Glass
The Spigen Tough Armor case is exactly what you need. I've used this case on my last 3 phones, Note 4, Note 8, and Note 20 Ultra. It's thin but protective, has a stand and isn't as big as an Otterbox. It works with wireless charging and wireless power share. It has never not worked with wireless charging. Everyone I have recommended it to has enjoyed it. And it lasts a long time. Get this case, you won't regret it.
I would rather carry my 10k wireless charging power bank when I need it -- which can also then go into a different pocket or a backpack or something -- than to have anything like this case on a daily basis. It's also cheaper and can be used on my other items as well. Earbuds, Switch, etc.
You probably mean to a female end of the 3.5mm but in case you meant the male end I got this one and it works perfectly. Also has DAC as pointed out in earlier comments amazon link
I used to use this app called Cram which compresses photos without really affecting the quality of the photo. You get 300 free "Crams" or have the option to pay for unlimited. There is a trick that I used to do for "unlimited" crams which is to go into your system settings, then Apps, search for "Cram" , then Storage and Clear Data and Cache. It should thereafter reset to 300.
Its been a good while since I used it but it worked for me
Background is from Backdrops app on Google Play.

Im pretty sure you can stream right now just by download the Xbox Game Pass (Beta) app from the Play Store. At least its working for me. Although I did have access to the private xCloud streaming through the Game Streaming app too
This hub is compatible while also providing USB ports for a keyboard/mouse and Ethernet if you want.
I like this one because it also comes in bronze tint so the sides still look bronze/refletive
may not be what you're looking for
You'd be stuck at 15W max on the N20U since it doesn't have the PPS protocol.
This is the charger I've been using for my S20 (which I returned after 2 weeks and waited for the Note 20 Ultra I have now). And it works great with the N20U also. But keep in mind it won't fast charge 2 devices at the same time like the Samsung charger will. So if you need one single charger for both devices at the same time, the Samsung one would be better for that.
This is the car charger I have that super fast charges https://www.amazon.com/dp/B089SJFN5Q?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
It doesn't come with a cable so I am using this Anker cable https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0832M47KX?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Just going to say this once, if you like the protection of Spigen and want similar to better durability INCLUDING the kick stand, check out the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro.
I'm personally never switching cases after the consistent build quality however it does cost $20 so beware about your budget.
I recommended this one to my brother, although he got the camo, which actually has a nice texture to the back but isn't extremely clear. It is quite thin while also being military drop tested. It feels really nice in the hand. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08CXBFJZX/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Kx1rFbPZR2NEQ Then there is mine, which I'll be getting tomorrow. It is slightly tinted black, which is ok with the black one I have, and has a Matte finish to hopefully ward off fingerprints. I would recommend this only to the people who got the black, everyone else should get the other one because it is clear. 2https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08BRC7FWF/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_4A1rFbYEA71KJ
Went with the Zagg Glassfusion for the front. It's ok. Better than the old plastic protectors, not as good as the Dome Glass. I'll get that when the price drops. The zagg seems to slow down the finger print sensor. It still works, just not as well.
For the back camera, just installed this today: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08FD7N6RN/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_btf_t1_NiFqFb46GHBKX
So far no major complaints about the camera protector. Easy to apply, seems to stick pretty well.
White. I'm going for the Stormtrooper look with this case. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the case is clear with black edges.

That's the one I just ordered.
I planned on using the stock protector until the tempered glass (AmFilm Ultra) I pre-ordered when I pre-ordered the phone came in. On Amazon it says that it won't be in stock until the 28th. I just emailed their tech support & they said it will be in stock tomorrow, which is better news.
If you want a plastic protector, I'd go with the first link I sent.
If you want a tempered glass, I'd go with the AmFilm Ultra. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08F5JWQ44/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_efApFbJ8J1GNF
Try SD maid...that clears more files safely them any other cleaning app I have used short of being rooted. Leftover files from uninstalled apps, duplicate files etc. Give it a try might help.
i have this sd card
it records 4k 60 just fine to the sd card.
If you're tech savvy or enjoy to tinker I highly recommend deploying pihole on a raspberry pi or virtual machine and use it for DNS adblocking that you have total control of.
You can then pair it with a VPN solution like Wireguard, OpenVPN, etc and have adblocking on the go as well as secure access to your devices remotely. PiVPN is a nice solution for this.
Check out /r/pihole for more info or assistance. The devs are active and it's a friendly community. There are many guides out there as well but both tools make it pretty easy to deploy.
Might not be what you're looking for, but I save to internal storage and use FolderSync to move the files to the SD card on a schedule while the phone's charging.
I just bought this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08B2ZVYJ3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I've had this case since I got my phone at launch and has protected it well after many drops. Decent price and very well protected.
I use this app. It's called Samsung Band Selector. It's on the Play Store. Been using it for around a year & a half because like you I get spotty 5G in thr Dallas area. Hope this works for you. Band Selector app
There is an new Android App "AutoPlay for Tiktok", which does that.
It's the only app, which can do it nearly perfect for longer videos.
Jumped up from a note 9 to a 20 Ultra and am loving it so far. Updated my homescreen slightly.

Run a speed test. And you're better off seeking Verizon help. It's likely a network issue. And try Samsung Band Selector https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ray.samsungbandselection to switch back to 4g. In a lot of areas, 5G is slow because it's not fully biilt out yet. That's not a Verizon thing, but a generalization. It gets better as carriers upgrade but it takes time. The tower by my home was getting sub 300kbps downloads regularly on 5G (AT&T) until recently when the tower seems to have been serviced.
I've also been messing with this app...cuz I dunno it still seems to keep a green/yellowish tint even after doing all that: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.halfcycle.cc
It definitely helps but could be a battery drain. Shame you have to download an app in the first to color correct a phone that costs like this...
I worked for a cellular carrier for 4 years and I can absolutely with 100% certainty say that you SHOULD NOT EVER PUT YOUR PHONE IN RICE IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT FIXING IT. It will never help as it doesn’t absorb the water and leaves a residue on the motherboard that enables corrosion. Saw hundreds of phones that died that otherwise could’ve been saved.
Buy some Dry-Z-Air at a local hardware store or silica gel packets from amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DYLR3Q6/ and leave it in a sealed container with the phone for 2-3 days. Remove the SIM card tray so that it has the air has the ability to reach the internals of the device and pull out the moisture.

Not sure. i havent used that case before.
Buti have this case and dropped my phone hundreds of times with zero issues :
Vapesoon Galaxy Note 20 Waterproof Case
personally I'd recommend something like this instead of an arm sleeve. can hold your keys too.
My last phone i used without a case, but the Note20 the glass front/back/sides is too damn slippery. I wanted some protection and grippiness, but not additional bulk. I tried 5 cases before settling on this Spigen. Can confirm it protects the phone well. It's a lot easier to hold, but I've still dropped it several times. It has a small lip around the camera bump, which I just confirmed has NO scratches on it after a year.
I picked up this set of three https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08DY4J2PX?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details. Was recommended by another user a few months ago.
I one-hand all the time. But I have a strap on mine that makes it possible to do. Honestly without the strap I would hate the N20U. And, in fact the one day I took it off the top heavy phone fell out of my hand and cracked.

I have that exact one and love it. It even fast charges my Note 20 in the case.
I also have never used a screen protector on any phone. I have zero scratches, but my phone never goes in my pocket. I use an Encased holster case.
I have dropped my phone a few times, but it never suffered any damage.
When I had a non wireless Android Auto car I used this https://www.amazon.com/iOttie-Wireless-Charger-Charging-Smartphones/dp/B07X52DJ66/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?adgrpid=64541156108&dchild=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwmK6IBhBqEiwAocMc8sCEgZkyZjWSenyt-siU6f2TL-TYYgdNZuXeGVSfIYYsq-fOtsqX-xoCB9EQAvD_BwE&hvadid...
Would this work?
I can't remember where I read that all of the fast charger qi chargers wont necessarily work with the N20U.
I'm a huge fan of the Unicorn Beetle cases. I'm currently using one on my Note 20 and I've got no complaints.
Got the same case for my wife and her iPhone 12.
Look into Join. I don't think there is a built-in universal copy/paste for Samsung devices, but Join works perfectly.
I put a tempered glass protector on my N20U too. I sure would hate to scratch the lens.
I've been using the YouMaker case, which makes the back flush, but it doesn't have much of a protective edge around the camera bump.
All too often I catch myself holding the phone with my pointy finger smack in the middle of the camera block. That finger just naturally wants to steady the phone. I'm wiping of fingerprints frequently. I've been thinking about trying one of those cases with a little sliding panel to cover the camera block.
DiskUsage app to check what is using the storage
Then either delete files or get a new/bigger MicroSD card and move the files to it
My suggestion would be to install aodNotify. It has an option to turn on the Always-on display when there is a notification and then turn it back off when the notification is acknowledged. That way you never miss a notification.
The one I use works with wireless charging and power share. It's a wallet though--I hate screen protectors.
The back is made of tempered glass, doesn't scuff up over time like a plastic clear case, and offers good protection.
I would highly recommend getting a new radio with AA if you can manage it. If not I got a mount for my wife's car that works great but only in landscape mode and basically sits on her dash with that sticky stuff. It's easy to pull off and is not an adhesive. I find the one I got for her but this one is similar
I drove across the US at the end of 2019 and went with a phone mount that sits in a cup holder.
I prefer this style because the clip ones don't work with the vents in my car, and the dashboard ones could potentially tear the dashboard if the suction cup is to strong (and I don't like things hanging off of my windshield).
Poweramp is my go to as well, but if you want a free alternative, you can go for HiBy Music: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hiby.music&hl=en&gl=US A very potent player by a maker of portable hi-fi players.
I'm in the US and just bought these ones for my Note 20 and they fit perfectly fine.
Here's a picture of them in my Note 20 stylus, compared to the stock ones (mine is on the right, stock on the left)
If you are an audiophile or just want the best quality there's only one app available and it's totally worth it! UAPP or USB Audio Player Pro is every audiophile's choice . I have both Poweramp and UAPP and when you enable the "Bypass system EQ and Dolby" under Internal HiRes audio it takes the quality to another level. So much more than everything out there and the app even has a Parametric EQ that is worth the add-on since it's fully customizable.
Tl;dr he's saying the Note20 value for money is not worth the price you pay.
Spend your money how you want to. Take YT (opinionated) videos with a grain of salt. This one especially includes a plug for NordVPN.
You can look into apps that mirror the PC's screen to your phone. (I used Splashtop in the past but there may be better ones out there). Alternatively if you just want to annotate on things you can activate clipboard sync in Microsoft Your Phone, open a note in Samsung Notes, take screenshots of what you want to annotate on your PC, paste it in Samsung Notes and annotate them that way.
Edit: I was going to post the above comment but then decided to make a search and this app came up. A lot of reviews say it doesn't work but I tried it and it does work for me. You should run an adblocker while using it this since there's a banner ad covering part of the interaction area
I received my bronze N20U. On ATT, no screen protector here, besides the plastic it is wrapped in during manufacturing. I'm disappointed in that, but, that's OK. I purchased 2x EGV flexible film. These are the same quality that I have on both of my N10+ phones. Good quality and very smooth.
Mine didn't come with the factory protector, but I've been very happy with the one I bought: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08C2PY7WY
I used to have that mushy trail issue on my Note 9, and I just realized in reading your post that it hasn't been an issue with this one. Applying the protector was a breeze and I haven't had any issues with it.
Good customer service, too. I had accidentally purchased the non-Ultra size and the seller quickly replied and helpfully sent me the correct size free of charge.
I took mine off thinking it was just regular film. I ended up getting this one: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B08C1YMBJT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Goes on really easily and has video instructions. I just changed it out on Monday when I got a new skin for the back of my phone.
Everyone always recommends the whitestones but I don't think you need to spend that much.. I ordered 3 cheaper screen protectors and I'm pretty happy with this one.. after letting it settle a couple days and turning up the screen sensitivity the thumb print still works for me as well.
My vents can't support a phone and I don't want a suction cup on my dash, so I went with this cup mount last year.
It worked perfectly fine for my trip from South Dakota to California and back.
try a replacement set :
6 bux so pretty cheap less than a buck each.
I usually buy tempered glass screen protectors for my Notes, but I found this plastic protector back in September and it has held up really well. I still have 2 more protectors left.

Don't about screen protector as I just have the factory fitted one. My case, however, is awesome and means that the camera sits absolutely flush now instead of sticking out.
I got the Spigen Tough Armor
Also try the EMR Stylii from Noris Digital, they look like Staedler art pencils. Much cheaper than the SPen’s for Samsung tablet, but lack a button (no need to charge them though!) Noris Digital SPen
Screen Protector: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08BNMSRB5?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I also have a (questionably Effective) CellHelmet liquid screen protector in the phone, also the tempered glass camera protector will fit under the camera cover on the case perfectly. Wouldn't say its the best but it feel safe enough maybe even over kill.
I thought the whitestones were a bit too expensive for the mixed reviews... I ordered 3 cheaper brands before I got one I was satisfied with...
After having it on for a couple days I re did the fingerprint scans a couple of times until I got one that seemed to traced my fingerprints quickly.. after that and turning the screen sensitivity up the fingerprint scanner still works basically like normal, maybe a little less responsive but not much.
Unfortunately, it's muzei, paired to an app that uses Google Earth screenshots that rotate it daily. (so can't find the specific wallpaper)
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.ming13.muzei.earthview (It says it's incompatible with muzei now, but it still works)
These have been my go to case for every Note (8, 10 and 20) I've owned and I'll continue to use them in the future.

You can't right out of the box :/ but its Android so technically its possible.
One example, not a pretty one, would be finding a lockscreen replacement that allows widgets since there is a notes widget.
Used to be a feature in Android but I guess its been scrapped. Currently you can only pin to the AOD.
Idk if anyone has but figuring out a way to add custom FaceWidgets, maybe then figure out a way to add widgets (the way it went with reverse engineering how OneUI themes are compiled or how apps have managed to overlay the AOD)?
I havent tried it out but I found this in the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jamworks.floatify&referrer=utm_source%3Dreddit-playstorelinks__bot
An alternative would be editing your lockscreen shortcuts(either default or via GoodLocks LockStar module) to open the notes app but thats a subpar substitute.
I'm using from Google, bought it last year on Amazon. Sounds good slightly lower than using the apple dongle but that's probably the phone not the adapter. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07J28BYT9?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I got this case and its pretty good in protecting your device. Keeps the device flat from the back while protecting the camera. The front has all around edged raised bumpers to protect the screen, even raised on the sides. Its a two piece case, has a soft plastic under case and the outer is a hard piece.
Screen Protector, I went to Best Buy and bought the Zagg Glass Fusion which is alright, not really the best. It already has indentation on the screen since its a mix of plastic and glass. However, I do get lifetime replacements so I can go back and get it replaced when there's any damage.
I used #Hex.
You can find tons of Plugins with different icons and themes. You don't need root or anything, it's pretty straight forward. You can also use themes that people created or make your own.
I took a very fast stab at searching for focus stacking for Android and learned Open Camera supports it and calls it "focus bracketing" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.sourceforge.opencamera I need to test it out still, but it's a starting point.
I've had a hard time finding more than 15w too until I stumbled on Huawei's wireless chargers. I got this one for the car - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B081D3GYBZ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
It charges 1000-1300 mha with the screen on when I check charge with Ampere.
I've been using VolumeSync for ages and it works very well. You can select which volume types it syncs. Just disable the system battery saver for it (it has a "notification" in-app for easy toggling). By default it shows a persistent notification in status bar and notification shade but it can be safely disabled.
You can try to use this app called Cram in the Play Store
It compresses photos to a smaller file size. You get 300 free "Cram" unless you pay for unlimited. However, I used to get "unlimited" by going to the phone Settings, searching the App, and clearing data so it resets it.
Just a recommendation
You can try Second Screen https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.farmerbb.secondscreen.free
I don't know if it'll help specifically with your needs but it does give you some control.
Just... Last phone I tried it on, it I had to change resolution so it fit the screen properly and it caused all of my app icons and widgets to get moved around and resized. Not sure how it'll work on a Samsung device yet.
Nah you can't I get these as well, they are illegal scamming spam and don't follow the rules of "stop" or opt-out. These are the type of messages we get
The Tru Caller app would be my suggestion to stopping these. Tmobile also has a new scam protection app for their subscribers.
I honestly just opted to change completely over to Android Messages which will filter out most of those scam messages with their latest update.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jamworks.alwaysondisplay&hl=en (Premium Version)
There's also SideActions side key remapper:
It adds one additional command (double press and hold) in addition to allowing you to map even more actions or apps.
My double press launches my camera, holding it toggles sound/vibrate, and a double press and hold launches Samsung Pay.
Mapping the flashlight is also useful (and there's an option for an extra bright flashlight).
I really like Podcast Republic, I've been using it since I retired my 120GB Zune!
I haven't tried Google or Apple's podcast apps though so I can't compare it to those.
I'm using this combination.
It's essentially substraum, but swift installer handles updates instead of having to do it manually.
Although I've tried most of these cases, I settled on the DBrand Grip. Not bulky and makes the camera bump flush. Reminds me of the Galaxy S3 Rugged that I once had. I kept this case from Amazon while waiting for the DBrand. Is this case up there? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08CYY52Y4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_OGmIFbMKPZE8K
Honestly just get the amFilm glass screen protectors. They're the same as Whitestone, but cheaper and with a better hassle free warranty ($34.99-39.99 vs $69.99, and no crappy Whitestone broken protector QC issues).
The install was a breeze - took about 10min to do it properly (make sure you watch the video thoroughly and are meticulous with cleaning your screen. This is similar to WhiteStone, but cheaper and it has a hassle-free warranty for 2x replacements as there are 2x protectors in the purchase.
The glass is so smooth, wipes off easily, and the S-Pen glides so nicely, BEST OF ALL: THE FINGERPRINT SENSOR STILL WORKS (albeit 90% of the time vs 100%, but I've yet to have to enter in my password or get a timeout from it not working). I've had mine on my phone with a case for 1-2wk now with no issue. The screen is unaffected and looks the same before and after.
I ended up getting the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro Case and it is bit bulky but I feel it protects the phone pretty well.
I also have the Samsung leather case that I got for free when I bought my phone and while it looks nice it doesn't seem to offer enough protection to be used as an everyday case. I will probably use it more for special occasions and whatnot.
My wife order a basic sunflower TPU/PC bumper case to use a pop socket on and it seems to be good enough for her uses.
