Samsung claims the S20 has pro-grade videography powers. 8K video can be down-converted to 4K or Full HD for pushing to other devices. Samsung says it will support Google Duo as the native video chat client in the phones' dialer app. All three phones support 5G and 4G networks.

The Galaxy S20 costs $1,000 and comes in the cloud blue color seen above, plus a cloud pink, cloud white, and cosmic gray. It's available to buy now from Samsung, various retailers, and with a contract with carriers. In the U.K., the phone costs 800 British pounds, and is sold through all major carriers, and through Samsung itself too.

Reviewers from nextpit have found the following***:
The Galaxy S20 is far from a performance monster in 2021 – but it wasn't one in 2020, either. Although you can buy more powerful smartphones for less money – like the Realme GT – the Exynos 990's performance is more than enough for everyday use. Samsung did not increase the battery capacity in the Galaxy S21 and the fast charging technology remained the same.

Pros
  • Fantastic cameras
  • Fast charging
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • No wireless charging
  • No memory card expansion

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The Galaxy S20 is the most manageable S20 lineup in terms of size and price. You get the super-bright, super-smooth screen; the improved zoom; a better night mode; and 8K video recording. No other major US phone lineup right now has all that. The Galaxy S10e is still better to use in one hand than the S20.

Pros
  • Super-bright, super-smooth screen
  • Great battery life
  • 4G and Wi-Fi 6 support
Cons
  • Camera patch is big
  • No 5G support

Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following***:
The Galaxy S20 is the best phone in Samsung's S20 series. It's powerful, compact and packs a versatile camera system that may not match the Ultra. The S20 ships with Android 10 - as you'd expect - and running Samsung's One UI 2.1. It costs £799 for the 4G option, and £899/$999 for the 5G model.

Pros
  • Beautiful 120Hz display

Cons

  • No wireless charging

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The Galaxy S20 is powered by one of two different chipsets. If you're in the US you'll get Qualcomm's top-end Snapdragon 865. Those around the rest of the world get Samsung's similarly high-end Exynos 990. The S20 has a 4,000mAh power pack, a notable increase over the 3,400mAh capacity on the S10. It's running Android 10, and we'd expect it to get the upgrade to Android 11 later in 2020.

Pros
  • Super-fast 5G
  • Solid battery life
Cons
  • No wireless charging
  • No microSD card slot

Reviewers from theverge have found the following***:
The S20 isn't bloated at all yet, but I see the direction the pendulum is going. Android and Samsung are open enough to allow things that would never fly on the iPhone. Despite Samsung's claims, it does feel more like an S11: a solid improvement over last year.

Pros
  • Great screen
  • Excellent camera system
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Software bloatware
  • Only one major Android update

At $999, the Samsung Galaxy S20 isn't cheap, but it is the most affordable phone. It's also the most compact phone in Samsung's flagship lineup, making it the best choice for those looking for an Android device that doesn't bulge out of their pockets. The biggest reason not to get the Galaxy S 20 is its battery life is about an hour behind the iPhone 11 Pro.

  • 120Hz display

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is one of the best Android phones on the market. It has a top-of-the-range Snapdragon 865 processor and a 120Hz display. The One UI 2.1 Android here is the most complete and reliable skin yet to grace an S-series flagship. However, it isn’t Android as Google intended.

The Galaxy S20 has a Full HD+ (2220 x 1080) resolution screen as standard. You can choose to up the resolution to WQHD+ (3040 x 1440) in the settings. You will sacrifice battery life if you do, however, and most people will probably find it unnecessary. Stick to the standard resolution and you will benefit from a key upgrade on this S20 – the 120Hz refresh-rate display. The S20 is almost certainly now the best Android phone for sound quality.

Pros
  • Great performance
  • 120Hz refresh rate display

Cons
