Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Review

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) is a special phone. If smartphone manufacturers often put on the market models that are "light" and offer top features for less money, then here we are dealing with a different business approach. The device is designed according to the most important features for users. Everything unnecessary has been removed.


What distinguishes the Samsung S20 FE the most from the top smartphones of the South Korean manufacturer is the material from which the back panel is made. Glastic is used instead of glass. It is a composite multicomponent material that consists of glass microspheres. It looks like aluminum or frosted glass. As a result, you have a device with a super strong and at the same time light back panel. Samsung S20 FE lies nicely in the hand. His back is not scratched quickly. You can use the smartphone without a case.

To be even more appealing to consumers, Samsung offers the S20 FE in several colors. Exactly six! Blue, purple, mint, red, orange and white. The frame of the smartphone is metal, and the case is hermetically sealed and covers the IP68 standard. You can drop the device in the snow or pour water on it. It won't hurt him.


Fans of big screens will appreciate the smartphone properly. It is equipped with a 6.5-inch SUPER AMOLED screen with a constant refresh rate of 120 Hz. In the settings you can lower it to 60 Hz. The resolution is Full HD+.


Like a number of Samsung's flagship smartphones from 2020, the S20 FE has the Exynos 990. It is the company's most powerful processor. The RAM is 6 GB (for comparison in some new models it is 8 GB). In everyday use and playing games you may not notice this difference. The internal storage is 128 GB and can be expanded with a memory card up to 1TB.


In the Samsung S20 FE we see an excellent set of rear cameras. The main one also has an ultra-wide angle and a TV camera. In addition to them, a depth sensor, macrocamera, periscopes, etc. can be used. Here's exactly what the set of cameras is:

The main one is 12-megapixel with an aperture of f / 1.8 and optical stabilization. We see almost the same solution in the flagship Galaxy S20. The ultra-wide-angle camera is 12-megapixel with an aperture of f / 2.2, and the TV is 8-megapixel with an aperture of f / 2.4.

When taking landscape photos, use the ultra-wide angle camera. It will capture much more space, and its resolution guarantees good detail. As for the camera, it has modest megapixels, but it is able to capture details well.

In night shots, you will find that all three cameras work well. There is almost no noise.

Although there is no macro camera in this smartphone, the main one handles the task perfectly.

If you plan to make videos with the Samsung S20 FE, you have several options - 4K video recording at 60 frames per second and slow motion video at up to 960 frames per second at HD resolution.

DeX support

One of the reasons to buy the Samsung S20 FE is DeX support. This is a flagship feature that you can use in two ways. First, by connecting the smartphone to an external monitor. So you can work in a desktop environment, handling as if in front of you is a real computer. You need a special cable to make the connection. The second application of DeX is by connecting the smartphone to a Samsung smart TV. This will allow you to display content on the big screen.

Autonomous work

The South Korean company has put a large enough battery in the Samsung S20 FE. It has a capacity of 4500 mAh. You can count on two days of battery life. The battery discharge rate during play is not high. To have a fast recharge, you will need a charger with a power of 25 watts, which does not come with the smartphone.

Samsung S20 FE supports Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 technology. To be accessible, you need to use the Samsung Charger Duo Pad.

There is also a function for reversing wireless charging, which will find application if you want to charge smart watches and headphones.


Samsung S20 FE is a smartphone that meets the expectations of long-time fans of the brand. It offers a large enough screen, excellent performance, decent cameras, long battery life, protection against moisture and has a nice appearance. With it you will feel up to date with new technologies for at least 2-3 years.
