SAMSUNG S20 and S20 FE comparison: how to choose ?

Let’s go for the Samsung Galaxy S20 VS S20fe match . What differences between these two smartphones ? Here is a great comparison to help you choose.

But what is it, a Samsung Fe (Fan Edition) ?

THE Samsung S20 Fe is a pop and rock’n’roll concept. This is the smartphone of those who want a recent and not too expensive Samsung. This refreshing version of the S20 is intended for personal and daily use. “” Back to basic “ . In everyday life, everyone does not need a big artillery or an ultra-Slim format to strut before colleagues at work.

From a grumpy and pessimistic point of view, we can consider the Samsung S20 Fan Edition as the version cheap and really inexpensive of S20 . But from an enthusiastic and positive angle, it is simply the cool smartphone that does neither too little, nor not enough. The right balance. We will see that the Samsung Fan Edition even has some features to its advantage. Come on, let’s compare all the Differences between the Galaxy S20 and the S20 FE . The great Samsung challenge was to succeed in reproducing the same smartphone as the S20 … in cheaper. Like that, you can buy a new phone and go on vacation. It is above all the characteristics of the camera that will help you choose between the two.

The rear camera: a much better quality for the Galaxy S20

THE Samsung Galaxy S20 And the S20 FE are both taking advantage of a triple back goal: great angle, ultra-angle and telephoto lens. They share the same X30 zoom, which allows you to play paparazzi without pointing out. The “night mode” initiated by the Samsung S10 (and available on the S9 after update) is still there, so beautiful and so practical. The rendering of the photos with low light is really very beautiful, thanks to artificial intelligence. In fact, your Samsung takes several photos, then he superimposes them to form only one. This makes the unsightly effects of basic flash disappear, which makes you look like a mummy more than anything else. AI also acts as an integrated photo assistant. With the “Single Talk mode”, also present on the two devices, your Samsung takes several photos on its own for 15 seconds, to then offer you a selection of photos with zooms and different formats. You just have to choose. The amateur photo is so easy with a recent Samsung.

The important point to grasp in the Comparison between S20 and Galaxy S20 FE , This is the difference in quality photo and video. The S20 offers from its triple back goal of beautiful photos of 64 Mp, where the Galaxy S20 Fe has only 12 Mp under the hood. It’s a very big difference. The S20 also has the advantage of being able to film in 8k, when the S20 Fan Edition remains on a basic 4K.

All this does samsung s20 fe a Economic version of the S20 . But we will see that the S20 FE catches up very well at the goal before.

Do more pretty selfies with friends with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fe

There front camera of the S20FE offers a Better quality of selfies (32 MP) that the S20, which has a ridiculous little 10 mp. This is the detail that allows us to look at the fan edition with optimism and enthusiasm. From a marketing point of view, the S20 FE is a smartphone which is aimed first for young people. The S20 fe is positioned as a Smartphone ideal for teens and young adults. But at the editorial staff of what a good plan, we prefer to say that he has more social use. After all, you have the right to like to take selfies in your retirement home. We know that youth are above all in the head !

To summarize the photo part:

  • Lovers of selfies, belfies, celfies, Helfies, Drelifies, Welfies will be delighted by the fan edition.
  • If you prefer to photograph landscapes or your friends, choose a Samsung S20 .

Performance: the big highlight of the Samsung Galaxy S20

On this, the Samsung S20 Fe has nothing to defend itself. The S20 wins all the points of comparison around the performance. Something justifies its higher price. The two smartphones have almost the processor at the CPU frequency of 2.7 GHz. But the Samsung Galaxy S20 doubles the S20 Fan Edition with 8 GB of RAM to support it (instead of 6 GB). You will feel the difference if you use heavy applications (video games, augmented reality, etc.).

We could have hoped that the S20 FE would offer better autonomy, since it displays a 4,500 mAh battery against 4000 mAh for the S20. But ultimately no, their time of use is similar. It must be said that the autonomy of a battery depends on a large number of factors. The S20 FE presents for example a slightly 6.5 inch larger screen . The screen technology is also different: Super Amoled for the S20 Fe, Dynamic Amoled X2 for the Galaxy S20 (the number of images displayed per second automatically rocks according to your use). Anyway, let’s not fall into these too technical details. What to remember here is just that it is not the size that matters. The Galaxy S20 is smaller and has a smaller battery, but it is more powerful.

A new name for a new decade

To illustrate as it should be the idea of ​​a break with the years 2010 but also to simply stick with the current year, Samsung would go from the Galaxy S10 to the Galaxy S20. We take stock of this potential change in strategy.

16 GB of RAM and 108 megapixels for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

Several elements of the Galaxy S20 Ultra technical sheet would have been revealed by blogger Max Weinbach. Samsung’s most premium smartphone could offer up to 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal memory.

The new champion of the chassis / screen ratio

An X5 optical zoom on a 48 megapixel sensor

According to Ice Universe, the Samsung Galaxy S11, S11E and S11+ are equipped with a 48 megapixel sensor with an X5 optical zoom. As a reminder, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ is satisfied with a 12 megapixel sensor.

Three cameras and a TOF sensor for the Samsung Galaxy S11+

A presentation on February 18 alongside the Galaxy Fold 2

According to Ice Universe, Samsung would have chosen the date of February 18 to present his Galaxy S11 at a unpacked conference in San Francisco. The South Korean firm could take the opportunity to also reveal a Galaxy Fold 2.

Up to 108 megapixels, an X5 optical zoom and from the 8K to 30fps

The photo part of the Samsung Galaxy S11 would be impressive on paper. We are already expecting to find a 108 megapixel sensor since the Exynos 990 chip is able to take care of it. In addition, Samsung presented a sensor of this definition last August, the Isocell Bright GM1, which notably equips the Xiaomi Mi Note 10. According to the latest rumors, this sensor would be associated with a telephoto lens with Optique X5 zoom. On the video side, the S11 would also put the package since it would be able to film 8K ​​at 30fps according to our colleagues from Sammobile.

An on the run benchmark and 3D renderings

The Sammobile specialized site has spotted a model on Geekbench with the SM-G986B serial number. This smartphone with an exynos 9830 chip (another name for exynos 990) and 12 GB of RAM could well be a Galaxy S11. For his part, onleaks shared several rendering of this new generation which would be visually close to the Galaxy A51 and A71 freshly presented.

A 120 Hz display option mentioned in the one UI 2 beta

The Serial Leaker Ice Universe shared the discovery of a surfer on Twitter. The latter noticed in the Beta of One UI 2 that it was possible to increase the refreshment rate up to 120 Hz, more than on the OnePlus 7 Pro, 7T and 7T Pro or even the Google Pixel 4.

An Exynos 990 chip for new Galaxy S

Samsung presented in October its latest high -end Soc. Successor of the exynos 9825, the exynos 990 benefits from an EUV 7NM engraving and is accompanied by an exynos 5123 modem compatible from 2G to 5G. This new chip capable of supporting 120 Hz screens as well as 108 megapixel sensors should most certainly be integrated into the Galaxy S11, S11E and S11+.
