    Heeeyyyyyy. Looking to maybe pull the trigger and a Note20 Ultra, the first non-Google phone I've had since the LG G2. Best Buy has it for $850, which I feel is very worth it. I've seen concerns about the battery life, which is a shame given that Notes are generally known for great battery life. I feel like I'd utilize the pen at work and I've always wanted to give the Note a try, so it may be time.

    How's the battery life been for everyone? Phone been consistently snappy?

    Hey now.. What up brother.. I've not experienced the Ultra but I've heard of happy people... I'm surprised on battery rumors not being good.. I loved my Note 10 + so I can't see how this one is not solid... Good time of the year for upgrade... @ggrant3876 are you using the phone?

    How are you good sir? I'm a little nervous moving from a stock Android to this, but from the reviews I've seen, the Note20 flies, and I don't think I'll mind One UI. Plus it'll go nicely with my Active 2. If the battery isn't a concern I may just pull the trigger. There's nothing wrong with the 2 XL at the moment, but I don't want to run a phone as my daily that will not get security updates after December.

    Battery life on my Note 20 Ultra is exceptional. I have an unlocked one from Samsung on the T-Mobile network. Have all the bloat disabled and an using Nap Time from the play store to get it into doze much faster. The battery drain overnight,10-12 hours is less than 5%. IMHO it's a battery sipper.

    I’m doing well brother ..and you and the family ? I actually like OneUI and it’s getting 3.0 which will be even better ..plus you can run any launcher now works good with gestures..There is also so much customization with Good Lock for Samsung phones you will be amazed ..duplicate apps I know there are alot but you don’t have to use them and can disable some if you wish ..I use package disabler on my Fold and works perfectly ...I don’t blame ya I need them updates but that Pixel served you well...check out Android Central as well ..we are on there and plenty of good posts on the Note ..

    I appreciate the help guys. I may just do it. It's time to try something different and I've always had an eye on the Note line.

    Family is doing well thanks for asking. Work is pretty much life right now and has been since March, so not much family time except for the weekends.

    The Note arrived yesterday but I'm waiting until Thursday to set it up. I'm excited to see how this thing runs.

    So far so good, except I wasn't paying close enough attention when I bought my case and purchased one for the Note20 and not the Ultra. So if anyone wants a free Spigen Ultra Hybrid case for a Note20 let me know.
