    For those interested last year in mid September Samsung had a 30% off deal for the then just released note10 (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/482761)

    Might happen again this year if you wish to try your luck and hold out

      I think this is very likely to happen, with the combination of the pandemic and Exynos hate they'll be even more aggressive to push sales before Apple's annual release

        Why do they care about Apple releasing a new product if they have the best phones?

        • +5 votes

          Is that a rhetorical question?

          Not that I am a Apple fan and to be honest I am a pro Android.
          But I am utterly disappointed with the S20 Ultra which my brother bought. Terrible camera performance for all the hype and the stupendous price tag.

            @SriAvi: Yeah, being with Samsung since the S2, each release has been a great upgrade, except for the S20 Ultra! And this Note 20 Ultra doesn't have much going against the S20 Ultra except for the pen, unlike previous Note models.

            Same disappointment with tree S20 Ultra's camera with mine, but the June firmware update fixed it and it is now good.

              @Sleepycat3: S6 was terrible, S8+ was pretty average too… currently on a 10+ but I feel the 9+ has been the best so far

              •  

                @ry34: I had an S6 and an Iphone 6 in parallell. The Samsung was light years ahead in performance but the iphone had a real switch to silence and a reversible connection. Wanna know more? Youtube mrwhoistheboss

              @PlushToys: stupendous
              adjective
              UK /stjuːˈpen.dəs/ US /stuːˈpen.dəs/

              very surprising, usually in a pleasing way, especially by being large in amount or size:
              He ran up stupendous debts through his extravagant lifestyle.

              From cambridge dictionary, but do understand mostly used in positive sense but sometimes interchangeably used for amazing. But thanks the more appropriate word is ridiculous.

      Noting that the buds live/buds+ offer will likely have ended. So if you value either of those at more than $180(10% of phone RRP) then you're better off pre ordering

      I've tried signing up to this with 3 different emails and the code never arrives in my inbox.

      Anyone else manage to get theirs?

      •  
        • i got it and i think its the same email id i used before on samsung … check your spam or search samsung in your mailbox. i got on 05th August.

        • Also i got another code for Free Samsung Care + 2years registration (they replace phone with a new one for any reason, broken screen or if you want another color), for subscribing to live event (although i didnt watch it)

        • i am not sure if all of these will stack together, but will be worth trying. Reply if you manage to stack $50 with this deal.

        •  

          Did you get yours relatively quickly after signing up or did you have to wait a few days?

          •  

            @dny: i think i got it in 48hours … i remember when you signup, there was a contact no or email mentioning to contact if you dont get code in 48 hours.

      •  

        I got this code too.

        DAMN! Now it's tempting.

        •  

          Yups … seems very appealing … if you happen to use it, please let me know if they all stack together ;)

              @DisabledUser128384: My code never arrived so I emailed them and they provided me a code via email. Just applied to my order successfully on the education store.

        •  

          The website was updated yesterday. Any reference of EPP, Enhanced Partner etc are excluded with Samsung Online Offer which is what this code is for.

          I don't know if you can even apply the new customer $50 against this.

  •  

    Is the 512Gb Note ultra also included in the discount - thanks?

    •  

      Yes It's roughly the same price/cheaper than the S20 Ultra 5G at launch.

    If you have a friend who works at Telstra they will have access to a 50% off code.

      Did you let them order on your behalf? It strictly says orders may be cancelled if code is not used from same account? I'd like to grab the code from a friend instead of bothering them to order it for me.

      •  

        Code must be used with the linked account, only way it works.
        I was a Telstra employee at the time of purchasing these.

        Were all purchased for myself or family.

    •  

      Breaching T&C's. Unfortunately ruins these discounts for those genuinely eligible as we'll start to see them being revoked. Plus your friend is at risk of being pulled up by their manager if caught.

        I was a Telstra employee at the time of using these offers, so no harm caused!

      I bought the 12GB/256GB Note 10+ from a friend in Optus for just under $900 (50% one-time discount code). It has been 10 months, so I can't recollect the exact price. I even managed to claim the GST under TRS last year. I didn't want to buy the Exynos phone, but under $900 for a just released flagship phone was a great deal (Plus the TRS). Not intending to change till Note 30/21 or whatever next years release is. And yes, my friend has to order it for me from his account, I paid using my card in his computer and put my home address for delivery.

      •  

        Was your friend working in an optus store or as a rep or such?

        •  

          He was working for Optus in the Macquarie Park campus, not a Rep or sales guy. Optus employee.

    •  

      I have heard from a friend that the 50% discount might not be available this time around.

      •  

        Yep Samsung have confirmed there will be no 50% Telco discounts this time around.

        •  

          Tough times.

      •  

        Confirming this, no 50% off this time around. They have reduced it to 35% though!

    Can you still get galaxy bean if you order from Edu store? or just UV steriliser

      they want to use exynos everywhere but aren't allowed in the US due to some qualcomm shenanigans. In those markets they're forced to use SD. It's something to do with the modem in that market that requires SD.

      •  

        SD SoCs are primarily used in regions where CDMA is still being used (China, NA etc) which i believe Qualcomm own the patent to. Everywhere else is the inferior Exynos SoC. Exynos would do much better in a tablet where the battery is larger and power draw not such a big deal.

        •  

          yes that's the story I've heard. If Samsung had their way, it would be Exynos in US and China also.

          People think they are deliberately denying us SD as if they're not allowed to give it to us. It's the other way around. They're forced to use SD. They'd rather we all be on Exynos than all be on SD.

          Since Samsung makes the Exynos chip, they have a vested interest in using it over a competitor's chip.

      Samsung want to use Exynos everywhere, and probably eventually will.

      Snapdragon isn't financially viable for them.

    • +1 vote

      Future Exynos SOC's should be much better, as they have canned development of their uncompetitive custom micro-architecture and are implementing standard ARM A series cores from now on, just like Qualcomm: https://www.anandtech.com/show/15061/samsung-to-cease-custom...

      Their GPU probably still won't be as good as Qualcomms custom Adreno though…

        i have read that they are switching to AMD gpus which will beat the Adreno.

          Ah yes, I hope that happens; should make for an interesting match-up against Qualcomm…

    The rest looks good, IMHO they don't seem to have addressed the achilles heel of the thing - authentication.

    If the in screen finger print sensor is as bad as the s10/s20 (tiny area, poor speed, unreliable) compared to a standard fingerprint sensor, and it doesn't have the iris sensor of the Note 9 - then it's a massive downgrade for me. I unlock my phone hundreds of times a day, and if it's not reliable, quick, and painless, what's the point.

    IMHO the Note 9 is the ultimate phone for a glove wearing +/- mask wearing pandemic

    •  

      My s20 ultra is near perfect with reading my fingerprint, you just have to do the setup correctly. I also hear its a lot better without the screen protector.

      What really annoys me is if I have wet fingers it won't work, not sure if they can fix that.

      •  

        Yeah note 10 plus finger print scanner is crap, have to reregister so often its not worth it. If it cant work reliably with the default pre-installed screen protector it pretty terrible

    •  

      Agree. This is one thing I hate about my Note 10+! The finger print scanner is just garbage! They should have just left it on the back like the Note 9.

    •  

      if you have a bluetooth device, you can set it to not lock as long as the phone remains in BT range of the device. For safety reasons it will still lock after a certain amount of hours, but infrequently enough to not be a nuisance and require unlocking every time you check your phone.

      It is assumed that if your watch or buds are still close by, the phone is still in your possession and if someone is trying to access the phone, it's probably you. I believe they call it Smart Lock.

  •  

    What colour are we all getting for the Note 20 Ultra?

    •  

      Gold or white looks clean as

      •  

        I'm torn between bronze or black haha!

        •  

          Ah yes bronze lol I called it gold well kinda looks like rose gold to me

          Though Def's this color over black. 😎

    •  

      Your colour will be determined by what version you want as far as I see.
