Samsung Galaxy S20 FE review: A feature-packed flagship choice, but only for true fans

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Now Available Only at Samsung Authorised Dealer Idris Electronics Raipur

Samsung has a ton of phones out right now, but the two you should keep in mind are the Galaxy S20 FE 5G and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. These two models offer flagship and super-flagship performance; the S20 FE will satisfy most people, while the Note 20 Ultra adds an even better screen, an S Pen stylus, and the best phone camera we’ve tested.

At 6.29 by 2.93 by 0.33 inches (HWD) and 6.67 ounces, the S20 FE is almost exactly the same size as the S20+. That means it isn’t a small phone, but it’s on par with most of the flagships on the market.

The phone comes in six colors including lavender, mint, navy, orange, red, or white. Overall, there’s a humble feel to it. With its flat front and matte metal surfaces, the S20 FE doesn’t try to scream luxury object the way curved-glass phones do. It’s also a bit more usable, and you don’t have the accidental-touch problem people often have with curved-screen phones. In addition, the matte back does a much better job at repelling both fingerprints and scratches than the S20’s glass back does.

The S20 FE has a 6.5-inch 2,400-by-1,080, 120Hz screen that should always be kept in 120Hz mode for smooth scrolling. There’s really no downside; the frame rate makes scrolling much smoother, and I tested battery life in 120Hz mode and it’s excellent. As this is one of Samsung’s recent AMOLED displays, colors are gorgeous and the screen is bright. While the S20 series is capable of going up to a higher 2,560-by-1,440 resolution, it can only do so at 60Hz, and I’ve found the smooth scrolling is worth the difference over the higher resolution.

The S20 FE has the same Snapdragon 865 processor as the S20 line does, along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot.

Its score of 12,705 on the PCMark Work 2.0 benchmark is on par with the S20 series, and its Geekbench scores of 862 single-core, 3,069 multi-core are slightly below the S20 series, but not enough to matter. GFXBench graphics benchmark scores are also on par with the other S20 phones, running at 45fps for the Car Chase onscreen benchmark.

Battery life is excellent. The FE has a big 4,500mAh battery, and combined with the 1080p screen, I got 13 hours, 31 minutes of video playback at 75 percent brightness. Battery life will be shorter if you’re doing a lot of scrolling, as that pumps the 120Hz screen, but it’ll still stay strong. The phone has 22W fast charging, wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging, taking about 90 minutes to reach a full charge.
