    Okay, according to the Anandtech quick-take, for telephoto the Note 20 uses a 64MP sensor and 76° wide angle lens, then crops to produce the desired “zoom”. F/2.0, OIS.

    The Ultra has a fixed 5x (24°) periscope/prism lens (it doesn’t physically zoom) so that the bump isn’t as big as it would be with a traditional 5x lens. F/3.0, OIS. The sensor is 16MP.

    Only the Ultra is tempting, camera-wise. But the price is higher than I’m currently willing to pay for a smartphone.

    Thanks Ted, this explains a lot. If you can make do with the 128gb Ultra, the iPhone 11 Pro gets you a $650 discount and a $150 reward credit. That gets you to about $500 after taking a refund of the $150 credit. I have a screen cap of my chat with Samsung telling me I can use my $200 credit ($50 bucks for "reservation" in July) as a refund 15 days after delivery of the GN20u (return period?)

    @dstrauss Thanks, Dale. I think I’ll hold off on any new smartphone. I’ll be done traveling by late September or so and won’t use it much through next spring. It can wait.

    Besides, it’s a real pain to get orders and arrange trades when everything needs to go through my mail service in Nevada then re-sent general delivery to a post office along my route—often nowadays requiring me to sign up at said post office ahead of time or they bounce the package. :mad:
