Galaxy S20 FE vs Samsung Galaxy S20 Comparison

Should you buy a Galaxy S20 FE or a Samsung Galaxy S20?

Which is best for you – the Galaxy S20 FE or the Samsung Galaxy S20? The Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) is an affordable version of the Galaxy S20, and both offer a range of features.

The Galaxy S20 ranks best for storage, battery life and video quality

If you need plenty of space for gaming, videos, and files then the Galaxy S20 is the versatile option, offering 8 GB of RAM while the Galaxy S20 FE only gives 6 GB. This translates to faster speed delivery from the Galaxy S20. Although the Galaxy S20 FE has a larger battery, the Galaxy S20 lasts about an hour longer in comparable usage. The downside of the Galaxy S20 FE is that it won't charge as fast as the S20. Both smartphones feature triple cameras, with the Galaxy S20 FE offering a better front camera resolution of 32 MP and the S20 having 10 MP. But this changes with the video camera resolution, the S20 being the leader with 3240 px whilst the Galaxy S20 FE has 1080.

Looking for a great deal on a large screen phone? Choose the Galaxy S20 FE 

The Galaxy S20 FE is the winner in the size game, with a wider screen at 6.5 inches compared to 6.2, giving a better viewing experience. Looking at these two smartphones side-by-side we must admit the Galaxy S20 comes out on top with its glass back, compared to the Galaxy S20 FE’s plastic back. But when the color of your smartphone’s important, the Galaxy S20 FE has more options, coming in 6 choices rather than the 4 of the S20. If you’re budget conscious the lower price of the Galaxy S20 FE is an ideal option, coming in at about $300 less than the Galaxy S20. 

What’s the bottom line on the Galaxy S20 FE and the Samsung Galaxy S20?

If you’re looking to save money, the Galaxy S20 FE is the smart choice, whereas if you prefer a quality look and feel and a sharper display, we suggest the Galaxy S20.
