Samsung S20

Have a new device coming next week. Upgrading from the S7 to the S20. Curious of people's opinions from those who have it. Hoping that I'll notice a bit difference in game.

    You will notice the change for sure, load times are better but still not as good as it is on iOS imo

    I'm disagreeing with that. iOS load times are becoming mythical. It's indistinguishable side by side. Sometimes Samsung is slightly faster and sometimes iPhone is slightly faster.

    Definitely looking forward to quicker load times, as fast as iOS or not. Are you able to run at 120hz or is the unintended heavy thing still happening?

    Mine still has a difference but since Android is pretty much open, guess it boils down to is what you have on the phone.

    What heavy thing?

    on all high refresh rate phones MCOC suffers from the unintended heavy during a combo. Turning it to 60hz solves the problem, thereby negating the point of getting a high refresh rate phone in the first place.

    Are you UK based or elsewhere, the UK's S20 doesn't have the Snapdragon chip so they perform quite poor apparently. So I've been told anyway

    Canada, as far as I was able to tell it comes with the snapdragon chipset.

    I have the Galaxy S20 Snapdragon version and when I got it early Match it was so smooth and fast. However, one of the mid April updates caused issues where I was having unintended heavies in every mode of the game. I fixed this by downgrading the screen from 120hz to 60hz, which was very disappointing that one app determines the whole phone screen speed. Here was my post about this issue:

    Don't believe that is the case with all phones that support high refresh rate. Used Asus Rog 2 for for months. Never had that issue. 120Hz refresh rate couples with 240Hz touch sensing takes the experience to a whole new level.

    I'm really hoping that I'm able to run in 120hz mode. I looked into it and like the ROG the Samsung pairs 120hz refresh rate with 240hz touch.

    So on the ROG you've never had the random heavy issue?

    Nope. Used it to do a lot of 6.4 where you know random heavies would absolutely piss me off. I had a chance to play with S20 and it didn't even feel like high refresh rate was supported in it for this game. The gameplay is so smooth on Rog 2. My alliance leader prefers it to his iPhone 11 Pro Max.

    I'll just chime in to say I'm happy to see this post. I literally just got the S20 5G on Thursday, but I haven't really played on it yet, cause I'm working from home and my tablet is always charged.

    @Rwj_2 if you happen to notice any issues, especially any that you're able to resolve with changes to the phone's settings, please feel free to shoot me a note about it.

    I'll do the same if I notice anything once I get some stick time with the phone.

    Take care,

    @mgj0630 will do.

    Really excited to get the phone, thinking it's going to be near the end of next week.

    I got the s20 over the weekend and gotta say. It is amazing. Loading times do seem faster and even the graphics look better and smoother. I've yet to see any game play lag so far. The only thing I have noticed what other people have mentioned with this phone and that this that when playing at 120hz, the random heavies when fighting seem to happen a lot

    Can't linger when tapping out hits or it will register as a heavy and the screen is very sensitive to unintentional touches. Once you get used to it and adjust, you won't get the unintended heavies.

    It happened with a lot of quick taps too. But I wanna adapt and overcome because the graphics on that mode are amazing in beautiful

    I'm starting to get the hang of it and see very few unintended heavies. Quick taps are ok but you really need to make sure you're lifting your finger right off the screen. I've been making sure to lift my finger higher between taps and it seems to be working. Taking some getting used to as I've tapped the same way for so long.

    The game is absolutely stunning at 120hz. It's almost eerie feeling, everything is so fast.

    Not rich enough for S20 😋
    Am looking into S10 which also has screen refresh rate of 120 hz also.
    Hoping game play is better!

    Going to try and be impartial. What are each months Legend runs using, ios or Android, In my opinion that is the ultimate litmus test.
