This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 3 modules (12 MP Wide, 64 MP Telephoto, 12 MP UltraWide), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Samsung Galaxy S20 5G has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there), dust and water protection.

Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Samsung Galaxy S20 5G we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Samsung in February 2020. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Samsung Galaxy S20 5G works on Android 10 and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2020.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Samsung Galaxy S20 5G is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. In addition, this model works in the fifth generation networks (5G), and this means that the speed of mobile Internet will be as high as home Wi-Fi (maximum 100 Mb/s). And there is another plus — the smartphone’s battery will be slower to use up the charge and your phone will work longer until the next charge. We have collected all smartphones with support for 5G networks on a specific page in the catalog, so that it is more convenient for you to choose and search for a new smartphone.

Screen, body and battery

6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Samsung Galaxy S20 5G and has an original solution for placing a selfie camera in the form of a small round hole in the screen. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 7.9 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 4 000 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with thick case and normal battery.

The most interesting thing is that the screen in the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The higher the value, the better. And this is very important in mobile games, because the high refresh rate makes the graphics smoother in the game. All smartphones with a display refresh rate of 120 Hz are collected in our catalog.

The case of the smartphone is completely protected from water and dust. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Samsung Galaxy S20 5G. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (triple camera smartphones): 12 MP Wide + 64 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate perfectly for being one of the best cameras on the market.

The frontcamera is also in Samsung Galaxy S20 5G. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 10 MP Wide. These characteristics for qualitative selfies it will be not enough, therefore we advise to look others selfie smartphones in our catalog. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 8-core on the chipset Exynos 990, and there is a version with a different processor 8-core on the chipset Snapdragon 865. RAM 8 GB, but if you want, you can buy a version of this smartphone on 12 GB of RAM and, perhaps it will work faster.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 128 GB. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Samsung Galaxy S20 5G supports memory cards microSDXC. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Samsung Galaxy S20 5G: buy or not to buy?

So we told about flagship powerful smartphone Samsung Galaxy S20 5G with a huge screen, chic main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a great capacious battery.

All these characteristics in 2020 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in March 2020 at a price of $780. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy Samsung Galaxy S20 5G, be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Samsung Galaxy S20 5G is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.
