Samsung Galaxy S20 Review

Score: 11.3/10

Samsung Galaxy S20 is a brilliantly made phone released almost a year ago, which features a huge 6.2-inches display, a high speed Octa-Core processor clocking at 2840 megahertz, and 2 cameras, a 12 megapixels back-facing camera and a 10 MP front side camera.

Samsung offers the S20 in a lot of color options: cloud blue, cloud pink, cosmic grey and cosmic white. Samsung appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 5.78 ounces phone. About its body materials, this device is made of Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 6) and Aluminum . Being just 0.31 inches thick,the Samsung Galaxy S20 is very slim and comfortable. This phone is a very compact phone, considering it presents a 6.2 inches display and it is only 5.97" long and 2.72" wide.

Samsung sells the Samsung Galaxy S20 with an extremely powerful 2840 megahertz Octa-Core processing unit, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SM8250 system chip with a big 12 GB RAM memory. A good advantage of the S20 is the 128 GB huge internal storage memory and a slot for SD memory cards, allowing the user to install hundreds of applications without thinking about how much storage is left.

This device includes an absolutely amazing 1440 x 3200 6.2" screen, making everything look beautiful and brightful.

This cellphone includes Wi-Fi capability (and it can share it with other devices acting as a wireless router), 5G amazingly fast connection type, LTE-A 4G high speed connectivity and also HSPA+ internet connection (a bit slower 4G variation) and the fastest 3G connectivity, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

The S20 is equipped with two cameras, a 12 MP back facing camera and a 10 MP front facing camera. Its back facing camera lens has a 1.8 aperture so it can take clear photos even in low lighting conditions. It is also able to film videos in 7680x4320 at 24 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow-motion videos up to 960 frames per second (32 times slower than regular videos).

The S20 also comes with lots of cool features like Fingerprint Reader, Facial recognition to unlock, Wireless charging, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (5.0 ), GPS Navigation and FM Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This device features a huge 4000 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery providing the Samsung Galaxy S20 an incredible battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this phone's battery is not removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to last shorter, even though with such a great capacity you will probably buy a new cellphone before it becomes a real problem.

The S20 may not be a very good choice considering it is offerred for $ 1000, and other similar cellphones cost less than that. If you will use it as a social cellphone, want it to take lots of pictures, will use it as a gaming phone or need a device for work, this cellphone is probably the right choice .
