If you pre-ordered a Galaxy Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra, the past few days have probably been pretty exciting for you. That initial week of getting a new phone and playing around with it can be a ton of fun, but it's also a trial for battery life as you're using your handset more than usual.

The Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra have very respectable batteries at 4,300 mAh and 4,500 mAh, respectively, and some of our AC forum members have already started reporting their first thoughts on their performance.

Taking a gander through the forums, here's what they have to say:

First day: 7am -1230pm currently at 65% with 2.5 hours SOT. 2 bars of signal in my office. Not to bad and will only get better. 120hz enabled.


Lucky, mine was on 4% at 19:30 so had to put it on charge. I will blame poor signal for my poor battery life.


Off charger for about 9 hours now with nearly 4 hours SOT and sitting at 47%. I'm pretty happy with it so far and if it only gets better then awesome. My S10+ would be dead right now with same usage.


Battery life is amazing so far. Also. You guys should know you can turn 5G off if you want. I would think depending on your carrier you might want it off. I noticed my phone kept switching back and forth a lot I guess where I live it's not super good.


What about you? Are you happy with your Galaxy Note 20 battery life?

  • Those dang Exynos processors draining the battery. Also Samsung didn't even make a bigger battery for the Note 20 ultra as the S20 ultra has 5000 mAh and the M30s/M31 have 6000 mAh batteries.
  • I'm extremely happy with my regular Note 20's battery.
    Haven't had a Note since the Note 7's "fire" sale.
  • I'm honestly not happy with the battery life because it's not any better than the Note 10+ battery life. My previous Note 10+ was an improvement over the Note 9, now it seems I'm getting less with the Note 20 Ultra than the Note 10+ when it was new. I'm a poweruser, wish it had the S20 Ultra's 5000mAh battery.
