Opinion: Why Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is a lot better choice than any other Android smartphones

When we talk about a ‘flagship smartphone’ only one thing comes to our mind, which is the Price! According to the tradition, smartphone makers nowadays start their flagship smartphone with a price tag of at least $999.

Recently, Samsung has introduced a new rival of the entire flagship smartphone segment with the launch of Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE). This phone not only offers a premium design and attractive color options but also packs with power-user features that compete directly against a flagship at costs you just $599.

On the flip side, by receiving a massive response from customers, Samsung has decided to launch a Fan Edition version of its flagship models every year.

The South Korean smartphone maker first used the Fan Edition branding with the Galaxy Note 7 FE. Three years later, the company brought back the branding for the Galaxy S20 FE. You can also call the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE a ‘Lite’ variant to Galaxy S20 and a successor to the Galaxy S10 Lite.

The Galaxy S20 FE is available in 4G and 5G variants. Inside the phone, the 5G variant is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC while the 4G variant has Samsung’s own Exynos 990. As usual, Galaxy S20 FE buyers in India or any European country will get the 4G variant equipped with Exynos 990 SoC.

It is interesting that Samsung has revealed the 5G Galaxy S20 FE with only 6GB of RAM. On the other hand, the 4G variant comes in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants.

Let’s talk about its qualities which make Galaxy S20 FE a better choice over any other Android smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition has an interesting design, which makes it look identical to the front side of Galaxy S20. However, the display bezels of this smartphone are larger than the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra.

For an affordable flagship, the lack of something like Gorilla Glass 6 is a sore omission and a similar feel comes from Galaxy S20 FE. On the other hand, the hole punch front camera is smaller compared to the Galaxy M51, and the front punch hole in OnePlus 8 Pro.

The Galaxy S20 FE comes with a flat display and this is a plus point for the consumers who want to install any type of case and cover and don’t like curved edges.

The side panel of the device looks like glass but it polished with aluminum. The aluminum frame is well curved on all sides. On the rear, you will get a triple rear camera setup which is placed on the top left corner, and the design makes it look similar to the Galaxy Note 20 series. Still, the back panel of this device is disappointing because it made with matte plastic.

Samsung will give 3 major Android OS updates to the Galaxy S20 FE:

Samsung launched Galaxy S20 Fan Edition with Android 10 and this device will get updates up to Android 13.

  • prefer plastic back over glass, prefer fingerprint sensor on side, back or anything than underscreen where Samsung fails time and time again for it being hit and miss in many reviews. 2D facial recognition is a joke compared to Apples 3D and this S20 variant doesn’t have the Samsung Secure Element chip like all other S20 variants. Otherwise the display, battery life and real estate of phone are very nice.

  • No point to say to buy this even at low prices because customer are fedup with heating issue of Exynos 990 processor in India.
