Does the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra's camera bump annoy you?

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is a phone that has a lot going for it. Between the 120Hz AMOLED display, Snapdragon 865+ processor, 108MP rear camera, and the almighty S Pen, it's one of the most capable Android handsets of the year.

All of that's great, but there's a small catch that some people aren't very thrilled about — the camera bump.

Every phone has a fairly large housing for its rear cameras these days, but the one on the Note 20 Ultra is something else. It's definitely one of the largest we've ever seen, and unsurprisingly, it's gotten a lot of people talking.

Yes... not happy about it, that said I still pre-ordered it...LOL


I mean, if the camera is good enough I won't really mind it. That however, is yet to be seen. I also haven't seen it in person yet so I'm not sure how much it will bother me.


Yeah it looks a bit odd and bulky. I'll probably get used to it though. I just hope the S View case covers it up. I'm not a fan of the huge bulky cases.


Sure I would have preferred not have that big hump but not a deal breaker based on what I experienced using the Ultra. Once you put a case it kind of becomes ok, but if you are non case person then it can be bothersome. My main question is what's taking so much space to make that big hump? Does the telescope mirror lens set up takes all that space? Don't think Huawei phones with similar setup...

  • Well I think big camera bumps are here to stay for awhile. Unless they make the body thicker (thus making larger battery capacity) you would end up having a big camera bump like that.
  • It's a ridiculously looking camera bump.
  • It'll spend ten seconds of it's life outside of a case, so it doesn't matter to me.
  • I always always protect my phones in a case. Its cheaper in the long run.
  • It looks odd and bulky but is not really an issue for me , anyway I am using a case on my phones.
  • Cases hide those camera bumps very well and protects from scratches.
  • The thing that bothers me is the rocking. I don't like cases, and when I'm eating lunch and reading the web, I tap more than just the bottom of the phone The other thing is they made it thicker to allow that beveled rim around the lens... for looks.
    If the lens was up against the glass, then fine, but it's that thick to allow for decorations. When phones exist that have no hump, yet take Pixel-like photos and iPhone beating video, you have to question why this one is so huge.
