The ultimate 2020 Review of Samsung Galaxy S20
The Samsung Galaxy S20 is a new model, having been launched at the beginning of 2020.
The overall quality of this smartphone is good. As it is a smartphone of higher features but the price is much higher than that of competitors, we recommend it for advanced smartphone users.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 arrived on the market with Android 10, so there are no problems for safety and compatibility with apps and other devices.
The 6.2″ screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels is much more pleasant than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
The battery life of Samsung Galaxy S20 is not exciting: in our scenario of use, its 4000 mAh allow it to reach only 27 hours, which is below average.
The 102.2 GB of actual available internal memory (128 GB declared) may be enough to store our data, if not, we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered rather robust.
Models in this price range are usually very powerful and this phone is no exception: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work at the same time), the presence of the fingerprint reader and being water resistant.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.
Samsung Galaxy S20 has three rear cameras (the main one is 12 Mp) which allow you to obtain good quality photos, except in situations with low light where they only reach sufficiency.
This mobile phone has a 10 Mp front camera, which allows you to take pictures of just enough quality, so selfies are not exciting.
- The photos taken with the rear camera are of good quality
- Recent version of the operating system
- It is one of the best models tested
- You can insert two SIMs at the same time
- It is resistant to immersion in water for short periods
- It is one of the most expensive models
