The S20 Ultra is supposedly expensive mainly for its long battery life. Besides, it’s the only phone in the trio that supports the 45W fast charging with an optional adapter provided. 

4. Camera

S20 and S20+ have nearly the same camera setups. They have a sensor clock that has an f/1.9 aperture, which is technically joined by 64MP telephoto lens with an f/2.0 aperture and 12MP ultrawide lens that has a greater aperture. However, S20+ adds a feature of flight sensor that helps in-depth mapping.

There isn’t much of a difference between the two; in fact, both the models have an optic hybrid Zoom (3x), with a 30x super-resolution zoom. Their 64MP pixel binning provides sharper-quality features, which comes handy if anyone’s looking for an effective zoom feature in their camera.

On the other hand, Galaxy 20 Ultra beats them all! Its main camera comes with an f/1.8 aperture and 108MP quality. It also provides a 48MP telephoto lens with an f/3.5 aperture and an f/2.2 aperture for its 12MP ultrawide sensor.
