Reviewers from nextpit have found:
The Galaxy Note 20 follows in the dubious footsteps of the S20 in February. Samsung advertised the smartphone to come with a "30x spatial zoom"; with a 1x optical zoom - we would assume that the camera hardware should be identical to the S-Pen. Next to the recently announced Galaxy S20 FE, I can tell you without hesitation that the Note 20 has absolutely no place in Samsung's catalog.
Pros
  • 120Hz refresh rate
  • Good battery life
  • Good camera performance
Cons
  • The S-Pen is too forgettable
  • No 120Hz display
  • No wireless charging

The Galaxy Note20 features an Exynos 990 with 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and an ARM Mali-G77 MP11 GPU. Supported biometric identification includes the in-display fingerprint reader and a 2D face detection feature. Out of the nominally 256 GB of storage 222 GB are accessible to the user.
Pros
  • Large display
  • Good speakers
  • Long battery life
  • Good cameras
Cons
  • No IP certification
  • No wireless charging
  • No IP rating

The Galaxy Note 20 has all of the various forms of 5G used in the US right now. It has 8GB of RAM (as compared with the Note 20 Ultra's 12GB) and 128GB of non-expandable storage. The Note 20 supports wireless DeX connectivity to cast a PC-like mode to your TV.
Pros
  • Excellent battery life
  • Excellent performance
  • S Pen included
Cons
  • No wireless charging
  • No headphone jack

Reviewers from phonearena have found:
The is the “cheaper” Note to buy this year, but it still has an MSRP of $999. If you can grab it with a $150 or $200 discount — sure, it can be worth it. The real disappointment is that the Note 20 does not have a high refresh rate screen.
Pros
  • Big, immersive screen
  • Decent battery life
Cons
  • No high refresh rate screen
  • No wireless charging

Reviewers from techradar have found:
The Galaxy Note 20 runs Android 10 with Samsung's One UI on top. It's a cute-but-tasteful interface, with pages replacing the vertical scroll used in most other 2020 takes on Android. The Note 20 may feel slightly slower than the Note 20 Ultra in places because of its 60Hz screen, but it's no less powerful a phone.
Pros
  • Great battery life
  • Decent cameras
  • Long-lasting battery
Cons
  • No wireless charging
  • Not the best value for money

Windows integration is solid and easy to get up and running once you've accepted the flurry of notifications. The Note 20 can also cast its desktop-class DeX Mode wirelessly to Miracast-supported displays. Gamers will appreciate that the Note 20 is supported as part of Microsoft's $15-per-month Xbox Game Pass Beta program.
Pros
  • Gorgeous 120Hz display
  • Good battery life
  • Fast wireless charging
Cons
  • Lackluster cameras
  • No wireless DeX Mode
