Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Durability Test! – Is it… Ultra Strong?

the galaxy s 20 ultra 5g might just be the most top-of-the-line highest end Android flagship we've ever seen with the best specs and longest name is it worth the $1400 though we've probably already know the answer but let's chat as to why inside the box we get the USB C 2 USB C charger some USB C corded headphones and a clear protective case and got a lot of free protection let's get started [Applause] [Music] now remember this ultra is Samsung's premium flagship for the moment price to have $1400 there are still the regular as 20s of course at the more reasonably unreasonable $1000 price point this review is going to be all about mr. premium here samsung seems to be really liking the soft screens these days luckily when I peel off this screen protector the display underneath doesn't die like we saw on the Galaxy d flip let's see if Samsung remembers how real glass is supposed to act we'll take a look at the large camera bump in just a second I've personally been using a samsung phone for the past four years or so as my daily device so I am a pretty big fan of the phones that Samsung makes usually as long as the advertising is pretty close to what gets delivered and we aren't robbed at the checkout I'm pretty easy to please with the s20 ultra we start seeing scratches at level 6 with deeper grooves at level 7 it's nice to see glass again this phone will be able to handle everyday objects and fingernails without getting scratched or dinged up my razor blade does no damage to the top 40 megapixel selfie camera the earpiece is up here as well and it's super thin slit there's no speaker grille to scratch or get damaged I'm a fan of this flatter screen design as well if the phone ever gets dropped the frame is going to be what gets hit instead of the glass which is good cuz glass is glass and glass breaks metal however might scratch but won't shatter the power button and volume button are made for metal and can still be removed I don't recommend stealing other people's phone buttons but if being a terrible human is your thing the option is available there are no buttons on the left side of the device nor on the top but there is a sim an SD card tray thumbs up to Samsung for keeping the expandable memory alive this guy can hold an additional 1 terabyte of storage with a normal micro SD card the slot helps future-proof the phone which is pretty important considering that $1400 starting a price point and how long you're gonna have to keep using it to pay it off the bottom of the phone has a little clear plastic protector to keep it from rubbing inside the box the bottom stereo speaker and USB C port are down here as well there is no headphone jack let's take a look for a second at the main selling point of this s20 ultra and that's the camera this boy is thick for people outside the United States the rise is about two point four millimeters tall for people inside the United States it's a bit thicker than a quarter yet also still pokes out above a toothpick the hump is a decent sized fraction of a fruit snack and it's just about the same size as a slice of butter I mean if you think about it the s20 ultra has four cameras one of which is a hundred and eight megapixels and the other is the 48 megapixel telephoto camera so the hump size is relatively reasonable and if you look closely you can see how much space that camera hardware actually takes up inside the phone check out how much room the hundred times space zoom periscope camera actually needs so that size of the exterior glass lens does match the dimensions of the hardware below it happy to announce my teardown skins with D brand or officially back we managed a hoard enough printer ink to hopefully keep them around long term this time we're covering a lot more phones with this patch and there are now two different styles of teardown instead of one you can see what they both look like on this grip case the original version on the right looks like it still has the shiny glass layer on the back or we have the new ultra matte version which looks like you're just holding the bare circuit boards personally I kind of like the glossy version true story I've had to tear down skin on my phone since our last batch and a stranger came up to me in public legitimately concerned that my phone was falling apart which means our skin is definitely doing his job I'll leave a link for the tear down skin down in the description of course I am getting ahead of myself this is a durability test video and not the teardown but there is one more thing we also tore down MacBooks Starbucks won't know what hit them you can see the dual fans with the batteries and my favorite part even the trackpad has its own see-through tear down protection you can see the copper windings for the taptic motor underneath there's a good chance we have a skin for your phone in your hand right now and we'll be adding more devices as the time goes on link is down in the description you're not gonna want to miss this one now don't get me wrong the ultra is a cool phone top of the line and all that jazz but it's not really doing anything that we haven't already seen before we saw the 108 megapixel camera already in the $500 Meno 10 and that periscope zoom camera we saw inside the p30 pro which also currently costs around $600 both of those phones with similar features are less than half the price of this ultra phone samsung has also taken their S 20 series and made 5g mandatory this time around and they charge a premium for it five G coverage still isn't even a thing yet for half of the United States and the millimeter wave the super high-speed portion of 5g is currently covering basically nobody the 5g phones are still very premature and paying a few hundred dollars out of your own pocket to sponsor a futuristic 5g tech you can't utilize is very much not worth it here in 2020 unless of course you do live in a large city and know for sure that the millimeter wave 5g system is right outside your window basically the $1400 galaxy s 20 ultra is made up of components that we can find another phones that cost half the price and includes a 5g system that most people can never use sometimes verbal burns hurt the most the 1440p AMOLED display lasted about 30 seconds under the heat from my lighter and did eventually recover the screen is also capable of a hundred and twenty Hertz refresh rate at 1080p we first saw this tech on the ROG phone – that's currently selling for five to six hundred dollars on eBay just another reason why this phone shouldn't be costing fourteen hundred the s20 ultra is using the under screen ultrasonic fingerprint scanner we saw debuted last year on the s10 I'll set my fingerprint first before adding some level seven deeper grooves to the screen and even with this additional artwork my phone was able to sense and read my fingerprint every single time the ultrasonic fingerprint scanners are safe from scratches I tried bumping up my exposure so we could get a look at the transparent pixels that surround the rectangular fingerprint scanner inside of the phone but it looks like we'll just have to wait until the next video to see how big it is the rectangle is still currently invisible Samsung hit it well finally it's time for the bin test honestly with how rock hard and rigid Samsung phones usually are I was surprised that this thick phone had a little bit of give to it it's the subtlest of sways of course probably due to the length of the phone and it's six point nine inch screen the s20 ultra does survive my durability test however no cracks kinks or permanent damage anywhere all I'm saying is if I had $1,400 in my pocket first of all I wouldn't spend it on a cell phone but if for whatever reason I had to it would not be this one the s20 ultra is a Frankenstein conglomerate of parts found in many other much cheaper phones and it doesn't bring anything new to the table if I wanted a top-of-the-line phone that screamed 2020 I would get the Galaxy Z flip even with its fragile screen its futuristic design and form factor warrant the $1400 price point way better than this s20 ultra does either way and every one is different but the one place you can't go wrong is with a teardown skin link is in the description let me know what you think tell me your thoughts on the s20 ultra down in the comments and coming out me on Instagram and Twitter thanks dumb for watching I'll see you around

Samsung S20 Ultra 5G Teardown! – Is the 5G even real?!

today we're gonna take apart the galaxy s2000 try and see what the crazy space zoom camera looks like from the inside this video is sponsored by my own self I wouldn't ask myself if I would like to sponsor a video and I was like hey self do you want to sponsor a video and then I was like yeah I do so here we are with the brand new lineup of tear down skins the skins that let you see all the magic inside of your phone without actually taking it apart you might be thinking to yourself hey Jerry isn't that just a sticker and yeah maybe it is but it's also something much more deeper significant it means something if any of us ever left the house it could very well be the fashion statement of our generation on the off chance you ever do have to go speak to someone and need a conversation starter you can be like look at this circuit board and it's a 50/50 shot that the conversations either gonna be over real quick or you've met someone cool which I see is a total win we cover most of the mainstream smartphones flagships and budget phones along with mac books and the Nintendo switch so if you want any of your devices to look like they're falling apart and I got the link down in the description and thanks to my own self for sponsoring this video you're welcome oh thanks you're the best nah you now let's see what this s20 ultra has under the hood in three dimensions instead of just two let's get started [Music] [Applause] [Music] does 5g even exist well yes but also no we'll learn more about this as we delve inside the brand-new s20 ultra 5g the latest and greatest from Samsung the front screen is flat this time around but the back panel is still as curvy as ever I can take my heat gun and razor blade and slice between the glass panel and the metal frame of the phone now purely for educational purposes and definitely not on accident I'm gonna show what happens if you round the corner with too much pressure using a hot plate or vacuum separator tool would probably make this removal bit easier luckily replacement back glass panels are usually around twenty or thirty dollars so it's not a big deal if it does crack I'll keep the phone just barely too hot to touch so the waterproofing adhesive stays soft underneath the glass and finally after a lot of gentle slicing the back panel can come away from the phone you can see the holes to be the camera lens here the only connection that's on the back of the glass panel is actually for the little microphone that's up here between the flash and the top camera it has four little circular contact pads that allow the microphone to communicate with the body of the s20 ultra speaking of which the s20 ultra body does have a wireless charging pad installed it can wirelessly charge it 15 watts and reverse Wireless charge other devices at nine watts pretty cool little trick I'll remove the five screws surrounding that top silver plate that covers all the ribbon cable connectors I'll set that off to the side next to the screws I took out so I can keep everything organized then I'll unplug the battery with my plastic pry tool it just done snaps like a little Lego I can uncover the rest of the motherboard by removing four more Phillips head screws that hold down the top antenna plastics notice there's a rectangular void in the plastic there's something missing here but I'll come back to it in just a second there are five screws holding down the bottom loudspeaker assembly the speaker plastic has the normal contact pads for communicating and a little red sticker covering the small balls inside of a speaker housing remember these little guys help the speaker sound larger than it actually is by making the error move around the balls inside of the housing it's a cute little technology coming up here to the top of the phone I'll pop out the sim and SD card tray this guy can handle an additional terabyte storage before we get to the cameras there's a few more things I need to take out first of all these extension ribbons that connect the mainboard to the charging port board each end disconnects like a little Lego then I can set them off to the side the charging port board itself has three screws holding it in place once these are removed the whole board can come away from the phone it is replaceable this time which is a good thing and pretty simple to take out Samsung also included some extra red rubber underneath the charging port and also down here at the bottom of the phone there is the little square vibrator motor now for the cameras Samsung has done some new stuff this time around with the cameras they're all still connected inside of the same metal housing and in order to remove them the whole motherboard needs to come away from the frame it's a double stacked motherboard just like we've seen inside of the iPhone and the note 10 previously and it's super thick there is no thermal paste on the back this time around which is strange normally we see that at high-end flagships each of the camera units has their own Lego style connector three of them are plugged into the backside of the motherboard and then the depth camera is the only one plugged into the front side the top camera is a 12 megapixel ultra wide-angle camera with no OIS the middle camera is the 108 megapixel main camera which does have optical image stabilization we have the depth camera here on the side without any OIS and then the periscope 100 times space zoom camera down here at the bottom which supposedly has OAS with its 10 X hybrid zoom now it's time to get inside the periscope camera because that seems like a fun activity all of the cameras are permanently built together with a metal surrounding frame so that the phone can seamlessly transition between the four different sensors without them looking out of place or being in a different position obviously the cameras are not meant to come apart but with enough aggressive persuasion I can get that 100 times space zoom camera to fall out of the frame which starts showing us some pretty cool stuff we first saw this technology inside of the p30 pro a year ago but Samsung has taken that periscope zoom hardware to the next level notice these copper coils I'll come back to these in a second this time around Samsung has a mechanical zoom inside that can physically move just like a professional DSLR lens at the bottom end of the camera we have the sensor which is sitting perpendicular to the back of the phone this is a 48 megapixel sensor and you can see that whatever light I shined through the lens gets bounced off at a 90 degree angle this is how the sensor sees things outside of the phone like a periscope in a submarine you'll also notice that the prism or the portion that reflects the light is optically stabilized the copper electromagnetic coils at the bottom and the two circular coils next to it control the prism stabilization the other two coils on this side control the center lens movement back and forth this one camera has five electromagnets inside which is kind of mind-boggling we've come a long way in just one a year technology progresses super fast now don't get me wrong this is a fantastic piece of hardware but I feel like the 100 times space zoom commercials that Samsung gave us hyping this up are very much different than the actual zoomed in images that we get out of the camera so definitely go watch a few videos on the actual camera quality before buying into the hype it's better to have realistic expectations Samsung's advertising isn't as realistic as it used to be the front camera is glued into place for some reason this is a 40 megapixels selfie camera with no optical image stabilization and then once again like we saw on the note 10 plus we have the top stereo speaker here positioned a bit farther into the foam body instead of up at the top the sound from the speaker goes through this channel before exiting out through the small earpiece lit up at the top it was interesting to see that there was no thermal paste or a foam on the back of the motherboard even the note 10 and the Galaxy S 10 both had foam on the back of the motherboard for heat dissipation we'll have to see if there's any thermal issues with this phone as time goes on there is a vapor chamber cooling system inside once that's pulled out I can slice it open to see the liquid inside of the actual chamber and we can definitely see the liquid droplets before they evaporate I'll slice open a bit more so we can watch these liquid dots disappear in the vapor chamber works by the processor sitting on one side and getting hot vaporized in the liquid which then heads to the opposite into the chamber cools down and gets whipped back through the center through some sweet capillary action from these copper wire strands also some pretty neat technology but it's still pretty strange there isn't more of a solid thermal connection between the motherboard and copper normally on premium flag ships like this we see something connecting the two one thing that's really important to remember whether you're buying cars computers or cell phones is the price to performance ratio you can get 90% of the performance at seventy percent of the price just by getting a phone that was released a few months ago getting that last 10% of top of line performance like in this s20 ultra is very expensive the part that's increased the price of this phone the most though is probably 5g I'll talk about that more in a second first let's get this battery out Samsung is notorious for permanently gluing their batteries in place there's enough glue in here to stick an elephant to the ceiling and this s20 is in fact a bit worse than usual the battery glue is so strong it bent my metal pry tool at a 90 degree angle which is pretty dangerous but don't worry Samsung I have more the problem with gluten batteries is that it makes the phone very difficult and dangerous to repair and also recycle at the end of its lifespan which for phones is relatively short if I accidentally puncture the surface of this battery it could start on fire I can use a bit of alcohol to soften the adhesive under the battery but most smart smartphone manufacturers just use easy battery pull tabs I'll warm up the adhesive a bit use my suction cup which also damages the battery but finally we are able to see some movement and this is pretty excessive the battery is held in place with a spider web of slime it is a five thousand milliamp power which is pretty powerful finally we get our first look at the under screen ultrasonic fingerprint scanner placement you can see the outline of the rectangle underneath the glass which reads your fingerprint through the AMOLED display layer since the LED pixels don't have a backlight behind them the screen is semi-transparent once again top-of-the-line technology at a premium price one of the most expensive things inside this phone though is the 5g if you remember the note 10 plus 5 G version was $200 more expensive than the regular note 10 plus and with the S 20 line Samsung has made that 5 upgrade mandatory and is just billing everyone extra for it don't get me wrong 5g is gonna be really cool in a few years but it's not here yet even Samsung knows this this particular device I've been taking apart is the Korean version of the S 20 ultra 5g and Samsung didn't even include the 5g millimeter way of antennas inside of this 5g phone because Korea doesn't have the millimeter wave 5g infrastructure you can see the antennas I'm talking about promoted in Samsung's own promotional video and here and I fix its teardown of a US model and you can see the 5g clearly written on my box but Samsung can still get away with not including the antennas because the network doesn't exist in Korea the millimeter wave 5g technology is also almost non-existent in the USA as well it's just in a few major cities right now and only covers a few blocks where it is installed there are two types of 5g low band 5g which the major carriers are currently rolling out and it is indeed faster than 4G but the insane millimeter wave speeds will never really make it out of the major cities and that's even if it ever gets installed it's not here yet long story short we should thank everyone who is buying this phone now though because they are paying that premium tax and subsidizing 5g millimeter wave for the rest of us in the future they are the early adopters even though no one can use it buying a 5g phone that doesn't come with 5g hardware has got to be rough news if you're in Korea phone companies and carriers are talking about 5g like it's the next gigantic leap for mankind and that it's here everywhere already but it's really not the only gigantic leap that's being taken is with your wallet at least for 2020 and probably 2021 we'll see what happens after that turning the phone on everything is working except for that camera we destroy it looks like when one camera is broken they all stop working either way it's been a fun phone to take apart what do you think of this whole 5g situation personally I'll probably hold off for a few more years till the 5g infrastructure is more widespread the mid band 5g and millimeter wave 5g are the ones we should be paying attention to they'll have the biggest improvements over 4G everyone is different though so let me know what you think down in the comments if you like seeing the inside of technology without the risk of in your own stuff up there's always the teardown wink call include in the description come hang out with me on Instagram and Twitter man thanks a ton for watching I'll see you around
