Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition): Reviews

samsung galaxy s20

Samsung Note 20 ultra and Samsung galaxy s20 ultra may be packed to the hilt with the most excellent and latest tech; however, it also comes with high prices. It makes them complex to sell when competitors like Oneplus and Google are creating excellent phones at more fair prices.

However, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (fan edition)  mobile is packed with many remarkable features of the flagship siblings. It includes a reliable triple camera, IP68 waterproofing, 5g connectivity, and a powerful processor, all for an affordable price.

At the price of $700 in the US, it is a hell of a lot more affordable than the Samsung Note 20 Ultra, in which the retail price is $1,300. In Australia and the UK, the 4g version of the Samsung S20 FE is available for the cost of AU$999 or £599, and with the 5g version price for AU$1,149 or £699. 

Even the price for the unlocked model in the US is presently flying around $600 at the leading retailers such as Best Buy and Amazon–no strings attached, no activation required. There are other activation choices available at Samsung, or somewhere else you may get the price down.

Powerful Processor and A Great Screen

There is a 6.5-inch screen, and the resolution is 2400 x 1080 pixels with a super AMOLED display, which is vibrant, pin-sharp, and bright. Is Galaxy S20 FE as high definition as Note 20 Ultra? Well, it is not, though; it comes with a 120Hz refresh rate, which makes swiping throughout the android interface feel a bit smoother. The screen also stretched to the edges with a punch-hole front-facing camera.

Samsung S20 Fe has the lightning-fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, which performed very well on the benchmark test.

Triple Camera

The camera is one of the main areas that has seen some compromises to keep down the phone budget. The rear camera setup comes with a 12-megapixel standard zoom camera with a 12-megapixel 3x zoom camera and an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera. They all have lower resolutions that you will find on more premium Samsung phones. Although, this phone also lacks features like 100x space zoom and 8k video recording that you will get from the S20 Ultra.

Shots from this phone are punchy with the amazing exposure balance between dark foregrounds and bright skies, which is helped by the auto HDR mode. It is the best camera around this price range.

Classy Design

Samsung gives the S20 FE in a wide range of vibrant colors, but the deep navy blue color is much more classy. It has a nice sports coat rather than a neon parka. Its rear panel is made of plastic, but it has a frosted finish that makes it look amazing. It also comes with Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and aluminum on the edges. It feels comfortable and sturdy to hold, and the matte texture on the back means that fingerprints are not much of a problem.

Samsung S20 Fe has no headphone jack, so in this case, you have to invest in Bluetooth headphones because you do not get any headphones in the box. But, this smartphone does have IP68 waterproofing, which will keep it safe from heavy rain or spilled drinks.


This phone comes with a 4,500mAh battery, 500mAh more than the regular S20 battery. It is no surprise that it has plenty of power to offer. We found that it had well over half of the battery left after a day of playing games, photographing, and some games. Undoubtedly, this phone will comfortably get through a full day of mixed uses. This phone also supports wireless charging and gives fast charging 25-watt to give a quick juice.
