I've used SPIGEN'S TOUGH ARMOR CASE on all of my SAMSUNG devices and have already received one for my Note20 Ultra. Nice part is it makes the back of the phone flat with the camera bump, yet with minimal amount of bulk and great protection.
You can use this app to switch between 3G/4G/5G if you think it's your phone trying to stay connected to 5G
I had some connectivity issues with 5G so I used this app to stick to LTE until 5G becomes more reliable plus 5G drains my battery faster.
So yeah, try it, it could be the network
You can't because of the way that samsung implements their power menu. But there are shortcut opener apps on the Google play store which will allow you to enable the game so they pop up in your notification tray. But you have to go into the shortcut opener app to like feed them and stuff.
Edit: this is the app I used https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.vndnguyen.shortcutmaster.lite
Just search easter egg and go through them to figure out which one is the right one
Amazon..I have one in my cart for like 60 bucks thats a ball head, plus a monopod and the head flips over so you can shoot from above.
I bought this from
Received it today, no telling when I'll get my phone, and I liked it well enough for the inexpensive price.
What I want is this from Razer, but they are back ordered
Too many chicken littles in this comment chain.
Just go here: https://vancedapp.com/
The dev for the app runs this site. You can also use their GitHub which is also 100 legit but honestly youre getting the same files from the vanced app website but with a friendlier interface. So it's really your choice.
I mean if you get the right one there is zero issue with it as far as how it performs.
I noticed the other guys comment about not telling people to Google it but if you search it's honestly the first link that pops up
Temdan I move heavy equipment and it has taken a beating my phone I'd pristine. Temdan for Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Case, Built-in Screen Protector Full Body Heavy Duty Shockproof Case Support Wireless Charging for Samsung Galaxy Note 20 6.7 inch 2020 https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B08JLG63B2/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_8X03WZ0G9C73XM6VYR9Y
get a Sleek Strip for your case. I have mine offset to line up under the camera on my Note 20 (not Ultra) and it doesn't interfere with wireless charging there. Offset also means you can have a steep or more flat position for using it as a kickstand. The kickstand doubles as a phone grip too. I love it, but it doesn't lie flat anymore with this on.
I use this one, and since the magnets are in the tabs rather than the case, they don't create the dead spots, as the magnets are too the right of the phone. And it works perfectly on my wireless charger, too.
Wait till you get this XD
I got it, worth it.
I bought this one on amazon ," https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DQM7WH5?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share " its an almost 7ft braided cable, capable of super fast charging!! Its also relatively affordable and it comes with 2!
absolutely agree, the loss of macro (coming from S9+) has been one of the biggest letdowns. I didn't realize how much I used it. If you use it for magnification frequently, like to read small print or in my case to look at circuit boards, you're gonna have a bad time. Somehow Smart Tools magnifier does a better job for me than the stock app. It probably ignores the 108mp sensor or uses the 12mp binned setting shrug
I change back and forth between two Spigen cases (the Ultra hybrid and the Crystal glitter). I also use (with zero fingerprint sensor issues) this screen protector: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08CC5WBV9/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1. It works, easy to install and really affordable.
I'm using nibs from the Note 8 on my Note 20 S-Pen and they fit perfectly fine.
I'm using these ones currently.
If you don't mind TPU films then this one is great, super easy to install if you follow the video:
AmFilm lens protector
amFilm glass screen protector
Make sure to get a "black" lens protector, otherwise flash will ruin your photos with a halo glare.
Try network speed, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.evozi.network
It has a floating widget that shows you your download and upload speeds. It will help you tell if it is the internet or not.
I think UAG, Otterbox costs too much money. Why try some others?
I found a note 20 ultra case and purchased it, and it worked very well. heavy-duty protection, with kickstand, and 2 camera protectors are also provided. Love it.
The Whitestone Dome ones work well with the reader but you have to be willing to shell out the coin and deal with the temperamental install process.
I'm currently using a Uniqueme protector that works marginally with the reader - good enough to use fingerprint not well enough for people who want a quick unlock - but the price is good. You do have to re-register your fingerprints and press somewhat hard to get them to take. Here it is on Amazon
TLDR - Whitestone Dome works really well, but $$$
Uniqueme works less well (about half) but $
Yeah it sucks. I loved the Supcase UB Pro for my note 9 but even Supcase doesn't make it with a cover. I thought maybe it's because of the in display fingerprint reader but they make ones with covers for S20 series so im at a loss. Anyway here is the one i use
It is alot thinner and lighter than a Otter or Sup but it has been solid for me
I currently use this. Works well.
I use Spigen Thin Fit for my N20U
The back is a non stick TPU shell, the edges are a smooth flexible rubber, doesn't get stuck in my pocket at all, but also has good friction on your hands so it doesn't feel slippery
There's an app you can download from the Google Play store for Assistant (and it was made by Google, not sketchy) that would basically act as a shortcut. You could try that to skip the Bixby routine?
I don't think there's an official way to remove the screen timeout, but you can install an app that will keep the screen awake like Wakey (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.doublep.wakey). There are others, but I've used wakey before, and you can add it as a Quick Setting item so it's easy to toggle on/off when you want to keep the screen on.
For the browser, I highly recommend Kiwi, mainly because it is exactly like Chrome, have AdBlock and most importantly - supports Chrome EXTENSIONS!
I just use the Tmobile Visual Voicemail on my unlocked S9+ (until my Note 20 Ultra finally ships)
Look up Tmobile Visual Voicemail in the Google play store.
Edited to add the link.
I like Stokie Pro quite a bit: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.harry.stokiepro
(There's also a free version with ads).
App is dedicated to collecting the stock wallpapers of a whole bunch of phones.
Definitely the best way to quickly organize all your apps! Kept it on my phone, tablet, and chromebook for at least the last 3 years!
I didn't see it for sale in the US, so I'm not sure. I just checked Amazon.co.uk and that's the one with the highest reviews.
I bought this one a few days ago for my Note 20, but it's currently sold out and I didn't see it on Amazon.co.uk.
I ordered the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro
I bought the Encased rebel on my iphone 11 last year for me and my wife and we loved it. Dropped my iphone down a flight of stairs and it was fine so probably going with it again.
I got this and there doesn't seem to be a difference between before and after application
The install was great too. The method is wild...make sure you watch the video and follow directions as its very different than the usual peel and stick
Use a USB-C to USB-C cable that is rated to USB3 or USB3.1 speeds - the one that Samsung provides in most markets is primarily for charging and only does USB2. You can also use something like this (which in fact you can use for much more).
I'm not sure if we are allowed to link. But I bought this one and I'm currently using now. It's amazing 360 protection and paid $20 mines
Thanks for letting me know! I bought it to hold me over for a month until this case becomes available but I wonder if the Tough Armor is even sturdier than this one.
Not from Samsung, but it’s available here (no Rickroll... I Promise...)- [NEWDERY Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Battery Case 10000mAh, Fast Charging & Qi Wireless & Android Auto & Samsung Dex Supported, Extended Backup Charger Case for Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G(6.9”)[10000mAh Battery case for N20U
Why anyone would want something like this or even a Samsung version is the question... especially with all the handy quick charging external battery packs
This one looks pretty good.
I have this one, but it's currently sold out.
I had that for my S20 Ultra, very nice. Here is the Note 20 Ultra: https://www.amazon.com/Ringke-Fusion-Design-Galaxy-Ultra/dp/B08CXSPZWV/ref=sr_1_5?crid=3903RLCFPOZPI&dchild=1&keywords=note+20+ultra+camo+case&qid=1598546365&sprefix=note+20+ultra+camo+case%2Caps%2C233&sr=8-5
I'm not in the UK, but checking Amazon.co.uk, this one looks pretty good.

Cut outs are actually over flash and a sensor haven't noticed any issue with picture quality. Big scary vulnerable hump needs to be protected lol
Thinking about that myself. I keep touching the camera with my hands. I did see this case that protects the camera by sliding back and forth:
Ordered it, I'll post about it when I get it
https://www.amazon.com/Spigen-Armor-Designed-Samsung-Galaxy/dp/B089CSKYW9 is what I ordered. Have the case, no phone yet. But it looks like it even recesses the camera bump a bit, even. Case in person is still very slim, not bulky at all. Says it should still wirelessly charge, too. I shall see tomorrow!
It's honestly not difficult and you don't need anything fancy. There's a million different things you can buy but I have something simple like this and threw an old 5TB HD I had laying around inside.
I have the Spigen Tough Armor on order. This is the exact one I got -- https://www.amazon.ca/Spigen-Tough-fonctionne-Samsung-Galaxy/dp/B089CX2D5F
I read a lot of good reviews about them, actually never owned this particular case before.
I too was a little disappointed the preapplied protector had a cut out for the fingerprint reader. The one on my s20 did not have a cut out and worked great.
I used both the Whitestone dome glass and the amfilm version of the same style screen protector. I actually found the AM film to look a little better and was a little easier to apply and it's about $30 USD cheaper. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B08F5JWQ44/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_uAamFbRW7VK9W
I ordered these off of Amazon here and they are perfect. It's a two pack so one for me and one for the wife. Of note, they are black. This may be a deal breaker for you.
