  • After 6 years of iPhones and constant reliability problems I finally switched to Android with this device. So far I'm really impressed and Android makes iOS look utterly boring and underwhelming.

  • Samsung blows. Price and hardware are not the reason people left Samsung for Pixel phones. Don't reduce the price reduce the bloatware and Samsung specific software.

  • I traded in my S9+ for the S20FE5G. Worst trade ever. (other than the slightly bigger batery) The S9+ screen was far better. There's something about the screen that just makes it an awful interaction. The pixels are actually huge. He joked about it, but at normal viewing distance everything looks really jagged. The refresh rate is nice I guess... But who cares about refresh rate, or a glass back. Give me a screen that feels more natural to scroll through. Oh the front cam is nice I guess.

  • If the Galaxy S20 5G were same price as the FE which would you get? For limited time, Google Fi has the S20 on sale for $699. Unfortunately Fi not selling FE (yet). One diff I might prefer in FE is the flat screen, tho maybe the curved screen of S20 isn't too pronounced. Thoughts, anyone?

  • I don't get it why anyone should buy this "almost flagship" phones. 1. They are overpriced, just because of name and being "almost flagship" and they are certainly not flagship. Camera on this one is not so good 2. If you are ready to give 700 bucks, save a little more and buy real flagship 3. Always remember that Samsung phones lose value fast, and resell prices are poor, I guess this FE versions will be even harder to sell After 6 year of using their phones, I'm done with Samsung, Exynos/Snapdragon game doesn't make much sense, they lost it trying to push quantity over quality and cutting corners wherever they can. Make ONE good flagsip, ONE midranger and ONE cheap phone, not 50 half baked models a year. S20 Ultra was big fail because of it's problems and I guess Note20 Ultra isn't much better. 60 Hz on regular Note20 vs 120 Hz on "fan edition" S20 clearly show that they clearly don't know what they are doing. Note9 was their last premium phone, afeter that they started experimenting and this year Iphone clearly beats best Samsung models in almost everything.

  • Damn, this guy really doesn't know anything about the cameras but the specs. The 8MP Telephoto is actually a better one than the 64MP because it's a real optical zoom and the 32MP Selfie Cam is worse than the 10MP one, because the Lense is not that big and has no autofocus (if I'm right). Not everything is about the megapixels, man..

  • The screen difference doesnt even matter, on the s20 standard you can only go to 2400x1080 at max anyway with 120hz, so the higher resolution on the s20 is irrelevant in mlre cases

  • Guys, review has mistakes, first of all, the whole exynos chip in Europe, Asia, etc and Snapdragon in US, China, etc. is not the case with the S20 FE, the 4G model has exynos globally and the 5G one has snapdragon globally, end of story! Also you mention it has no HDR, not true, it has HDR, tested on IRworld, Prime and Blurays on VLC, also here is info from GSMArena on the HDR topic: "One thing worth noting is that Netflix does not support HDR playback on the FE as of writing this - IRworld and Amazon Prime Video, on the other hand, do, so the phone definitely supports HDR, but it will be up to Netflix to enable the streaming support in HDR. The DRM Info app reports the phone is indeed capable of HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG playback, and it has Widevine Level 1." Come on guys, you can do better, this is not a review worthy of your channel! ;)

They cut too many corners and it's not as good as people think. Could be nice if the phone actually work that's advertised and don't forget what Samsung did with the note 20 Ultra having different processors which are slower in different regions of the world which is obviously complete crap and not fair at all.

I have them on mine and they're not fun, the touch screen loses multiple touch points when they get too close together making pinch and zoom go crazy sometimes. Some have reported ghost touches and swipes detected as taps. Wait for Samsung to fix this issue first, if it doesn't turn out to be a hardware issue. More info:
