- Analysis by KJ David
Samsung's 2020 Galaxy S20 is a flagship-caliber smartphone whose mishmash of pros and cons is, regrettably, marred by a rather underwhelming 10-megapixel-only selfie camera , considering that many of the market's leading selfie phones tout at least 16-megapixel selfie shooters. It also does not quite hit the premium-class mark when it comes to multimedia storage, offering only 128GB of on-board memory , although it does come with a memory card slot to make up for that slight con.
Among its biggest pros is the triple-lens camera perched on its rear, which could fare well versus what some of the best photography smartphones offer. It consists of a 12-megapixel wide-angle primary lens, a 12-megapixel lens ultra-wide shots, and a whopping 64-megapixel telephoto camera , the latter enabling 3x optical zooming as well as a 30x Super Resolution Zoom option. It is also offered in a 5G-enabled version , which places it alongside some flagship company in terms of network connectivity.
Looking under the hood, this Galaxy S edition boasts a triple-cluster (2.7GHz + 2.5GHz + 2GHz) octa-core processor alongside a large 12GB RAM , a combination that might plug it into Phonerated's list of the fastest smartphones as of this specs-based review. Its hardware pros and cons also include a 4000mAh battery enabled for both wired and wireless charging.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 rocks a somewhat feature-rich screen, in the form of a 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X interface with a premium 120Hz refresh rate and a 3200 x 1440 Quad HD+ resolution (563ppi). It brings back Samsung's signature AOD (Always On Display) feature and Edge Panel technology.
Touting an IP68-rated waterproof housing that's coated in colors like Cloud Blue and Aura Red, the Galaxy S20 caters to tech-savvy users who are inclined towards multimedia and mobile photography.
