Design


The new Galaxy S20 FE has basic proportions but is impressively larger than the Galaxy S20 credits to its 6.5-inch 1080x2400-pixel Super AMOLED screen. It doesn’t have curved edges on the screen, which is a good factor for some people. The frame is glossy and metallic, and the rear panel is made from matte polycarbonate. It's rounded sides in the rear panel make this smartphone relatively easy to hold and drop. Also the non-slip texture is immensely appreciated. Moreover, the screen’s borders are slim, adding a premium feel to the phone.

In the 128GB version of Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G, you get five colours to choose from, Cloud Red and Cloud Navy to the much softer pastel Cloud Mint and Cloud Lavender, lastly, a neutral Cloud White. With 8.4mm thickness and 190g weight, it is relatively easy to handle. In addition, the phone is rated IP68 for water and dust resistance, meaning it should withstand exposure to various elements.

Features


The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE comes with a similar top-tier Exynos 990 processor as seen in the S20 family. It is an octa-core SoC with two custom Samsung performance cores functioning at 2.73GHz, two more ARM Cortex-A76 cores operating at 2.5GHz, and four more energy-saving 2GHz Cortex-A55 cores. The smartphone is available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage and supports up to a 1TB microSD card employing the hybrid slot.

When it comes to the battery, it has a 4500mAh battery capacity and comes with wireless charging supported in both directions. However, you only get a 15W adapter in the box despite the fact that the box can take advantage of up to 25W chargers.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G has a downsized set of cameras. It has a 12-megapixel f/1.8 main camera with OIS. There’s also a 12-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide camera and an 8-megapixel f/2.4 3X optical telephoto camera. For selfies, it has a 32-megapixel f/2.2 camera. A pleasant surprise is the 120Hz refresh rate; however, you can’t possibly enable this dynamically – it’s either 60Hz or 120Hz constantly.

Final Opinion


The USP of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is its fit and finish, top-quality screen, and excellent cameras. As expected, there’s no lag in any case, especially when swiping through the One UI interface and multitasking between various apps. If you’re a Samsung fan, then this fan edition will work for you as it complements the S20 series in a way that makes it worth the price.
