Let’s start this week off with some reviews of new Samsung devices.

It’s not hard to imagine that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is an excellent phone, one of the very best on the market today, but is it as good as it should be? This is thrown further into question when we review the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G, a “mid-range� phone that doesn’t shy away from competing with the “flagships.� 

One of the above phones is a 6.7-inch display, the other is 6.9-inches. Both have 4,500 mAh batteries with 25W chargers, 5G connectivity, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. One has a headphone jack. What it really boils down to, is the extra price worth it for the upgraded processor, a little more RAM, and a bigger camera? There’s more to it than that, so you should dive in to see for yourself.
