Samsung Galaxy S20 is the smallest of the new Galaxy S flagship series. Though the smallest, make no mistake, Samsung Galaxy S20 is still a top of the line premium smartphone. There is a variant of the S20 that also supports 5G connectivity just like others in the series. It comes with a 6.2 inches display, 128G 8GB (128GB 12GB for S20 5G) RAM memory, and 12MP-64MP-12MP Triple camera setup.

The S20 looks very much like the s20+, with the only noticeable difference in their sizes and the rear camera arrangement. They both have three variant colors, cosmic gray, cloud blue, and cloud pink.

Samsung Galaxy S20: Review

Hardware

Samsung Galaxy s20 and its immediate senior, the S20+ have a very similar hardware configuration which depending on your location you can expect to see an Exynos 990 (7 nm+) chipset on an Octa-core (Dual 2.73 GHz Mongoose M5 and Dual 2.60 GHz Cortex-A76 and a Quad 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU or a Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 (7 nm+) chipset on an Octa-core (single 2.84 GHz Kryo 585 & Try 2.42 GHz Kryo 585 & Quad 1.8 GHz Kryo 585) CPU.

However, the major difference lies in their memories. While the S20 and the S20+ both have 128 GB 8GB memory configuration, the S20+ 5G has up to 512 GB 12GB with S20 5G pegged at 128GB 12GB memory.

Design and Display

Samsung Galaxy S20 is observably smaller in size compared to the other two, the S20 Ultra and S20+ with a dimension of 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9 mm weighing just 163g. Except for the display size of 6.2 inches, the S20 and S20+ have the same display type, resolution and protection.

Camera

The camera on the Galaxy S20 is another thing that makes it obvious and distinguishable from the S20+. It comes with a Triple-camera setup of 12MP Ultra Wide Camera, 12MP Wide-angle Camera, and 64MP Telephoto Camera at the rear. The selfie camera is the same as that of the S20+ at 10MP with dual pixel Auto Focus (AF)

Battery

The S20 battery is also big but unlike its seniors, it comes at 4000mAh equipped with Fast battery charging 25W and
USB Power Delivery 3.0
