The only thing I want to say about this phone is this is a big phone! Only Shaquille O'Neal can fit this phone in his palm comfortably. Although the box is compact because of the non-availability of a charger inside it, this phone won’t feel like an s-series phone at all. This phone will remind you of a note because of its size and weight. This phone is even bigger than the Note 20 Ultra. The hype of this phone is way too much, which is quite understandable as it is the first flagship phone with a built-in S-pen which combines the productivity of a Note phone with the unmatched performance and camera of the S Series phone. This phone weighs around 228 grams, and one more thing this phone does not contain any 3.5 mm jack for your earphones.

Pros

  • Traditional Note design with ultramodern decoration touches-big display, cubical shape, twisted edges, unique camera styling. 
  •  Without any doubt, S Pen has wide-ranging functionality for work and play.
  •  The display is simply spectacular. 
  •  Battery life is quite impressive, even with heavy usage. 
  • The ultra-grade camera system is one of the best camera systems available in the market, zooming capability is hard to compete with. 

Cons

  • S Pen eats up the internal volume and adds weight, which is not ideal if you are in for the S Ultra and not the Note Ultra.
  • Inadequately communicated speedy charging capability ( actually relatively speedy in the Apple-Google-Samsung world, but others are way faster).
  • Is not called a Note and that's a bit disappointing.
