    When it comes to tips and tricks for the Galaxy Note 20, our First 10 Things video is where you should start. This is the Note 20/Note 20 Ultra tutorial that helps you get setup in the best possible way so that you can immediately get the most out of your new $999+ Samsung phone. In this video, we cover device customization, always-on display, 120Hz vs. 60Hz, navigation gestures vs. buttons, Samsung's advanced features, One UI 2.5, and quick S Pen shortcuts worth knowing about.

    Has anyone seen if they've improved the fingerprint reader? In my opinion the one on the note 10+ is horrid. The note 9 was flawless. My biggest complaint about the Note 10. Hope it's improved in the 20.

    TBH I don't expect it to be much better ...I don't have issues with mine on Note 10+ but I also use face unlock ...

    Samsung seems to go back and forth on these. Lisa@MobileTechReview didn't like the reader on the S10, but did like the one on the Note 10+. She had a lot of problems with the S20 reader, but none with the Note 20 Ultra she reviewed.

    FWIW, my wife has a lot of problems with the reader on her Note 10 to where she has given up on it, but I have pretty much no issues with my Note 10+.

    I am not sure if the inconsistencies vary from model to model or phone to phone.

    I'm hopeful. However UPS still hasn't received it but shows next day. Seems they send them a little earlier each year.

    The fingerprint reader works pretty good about 9 out if ten it mostly can't read my finger side ways probably could fix if I retrained it some more

    I like the swipe to screen capture but would like it to be an option with power button press

    I love this video
    I like that it shows you can use nova w gestures and that Samsung fixed it

    I wish the phone had 512 storage but I can get by with 128 gb i used to use SD cards but have list data that way so I've soured in them but good option if you needed to store something bug in a pinch
