Thank you for posting all your good information. I would love to get the files of youf good S20 and bad S20 ultra unbinned images so that might see the differences in quality myself.

I went back and did a separate test.  The above is focused using Samsung's autofocus.  My new test was done with tap-to-focus on the area shown above, and it's pretty sharp.

The deal is, a large sensor (1/1.33") + relatively fast lens (f/1.8) plus tiny pixels (0.8 micron) yields shallow DOF when viewed at 1:1.  Therefore, Samsung missed focus (it focused on the store I was in instead of the building across the street.

The processing is still terrible, but hopefully the software update will fix that.

I did find something else out - the "slow motion" video (not ultra-slow-mo) is taken at 240fps.  It's unbelievable that this is not listed in any spec sheet anywhere.  I took a 12 second video so it's not limited to 1 second like the ultra slow-mo (480fps on the ultra and 960fps on the s20 and s20+).
