The Galaxy S20 FE offers 6 vibrant color options for every smartphone enthusiasts. On the front side, it sports a 6.5-inch Infinity-O Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate for high-performance gaming and a smoother user experience.

Aside from all of its goodness, the Galaxy S20 FE has now become a topic of discussion among its users and it’s not for its specialties but a serious issue.

Following its initial sales, users of Samsung Galaxy S20 FE reportedly facing “ghost touches” on the corner of the display. However, this is not the only issue experienced by the users because there’s also a screen sensitivity issue, and touches sometimes appear on the offset or a random place than the actual position of the fingertip.

Some users reported that their S20 FE is not able to respond to scrolling and swiping actions, sometimes these features work very slow, and sometimes it makes sudden jumps from top to bottom.

The touch response rate is sometimes very slow and the display failed to register touch at the same time and even delays it.

According to users on different forums and communities, these problems are not persisted all the time but they do appearing frequently in many Galaxy S20 FE smartphones.

After this widespread problem, Samsung quickly acknowledges it and started the rollout of the first firmware update in October with fixes for “screen touch”. Unfortunately, the update failed to fix the issues.

Then the South Korena tech giant made some improvements to the firmware of Galaxy S20 FE and rolled it out. Still, it didn’t make any significant improvements to the display.

Recently, Samsung began pushing the November update and it also promises to solve the touch screen issue but the story remains unchanged.

Meanwhile, there are no confirmations that have been made whether this problem is related to the hardware of the Galaxy S20 FE or it’s related to the software.

On the other side, Samsung has sped us its process of finding a solution and release a new software update for the Galaxy S20 FE with fixes for these touch-related issues.

Vivo X100 Ultra w/ 200MP Periscope beats Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra

Published

Vivo X100 Ultra

Vivo X100 Ultra is officially launched to challenge Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra with a 200MP Periscope camera. Specs-wise, this smartphone outpaces Samsung’s latest Galaxy S24 Ultra in terms of imaging capabilities, thanks to the custom Periscope sensor.

The new Vivo X100 Ultra comes with a 1-inch Sony LYT-900 main camera, and a 200MP periscope camera leveraging the 1/1.4″ ISOCELL HP9 sensor co-developed with Samsung. It’s notably the largest telephoto sensor fitted on a phone to date.

The Periscope introduces f/2.67 aperture and an 85mm equivalent focal length. Following its collaboration, Vivo brought Zeiss T* coating and Zeiss APO certification to the X100 Ultra, as part of delivering improved clarity and less fringing at contrast edges.

This monstrous zoom camera brings up to 3.7x optical zoom and 20% improved light sensitivity. Its telephoto macro (a.k.a. telemacro) mode offers 20x magnification. The company also introduced its BlueImage algorithm which was in development for eight years.

Vivo X100 Ultra

X100 Ultra’s 50MP main camera uses a 1/0.98” LYT-900 sensor with f/1.75 aperture and 23mm focal length. It also supports up to 4K 120fps video recording and Dolby Vision support. Besides, the 3rd lens is a 14mm equivalent ultrawide with a 1/2″ 50MP LYT-600 sensor.

Galaxy S24 Ultra…

The Galaxy S24 Ultra comes with a quad rear camera setup. The module consists of an advanced 200MP primary sensor – ISOCELL HP2, an ultrawide camera, a 10MP Telephoto with 3x optical zoom, and a 50MP Periscope with 5x optical zoom.

As the periscope camera is co-developed by Samsung, quality shouldn’t be questioned. This year’s Samsung flagship is equipped with a new 50MP periscope camera with 5x optical zoom. However, the 200MP periscope sounds pretty capable and powerful over S24 Ultra’s.
