of Samsung Galaxy S20 FE It is gradually becoming an impressive mid-range to semi-flagship phone. it needs Galaxy S20Its 120Hz display, triple rear camera and a powerful chip made some compromises, and it was priced at US$699 in the US and £699 in the UK.
Samsung marketed this phone as a mobile phone. It absorbed what Samsung fans wanted and sold them at a more affordable price, thus missing some functions that might be redundant. But I really don’t understand the purpose of Galaxy S20 FE.
Let’s start from where FE stands for “Fan Edition”. If you are a fan of Samsung, then you will definitely want to get a true flagship Galaxy phone, whether it’s the Galaxy S20 or you really want to spend cash on the phone Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
Flagship phones are not cheap, but $699 is not a small sum. And people who like something tend to pay more than people who don’t like it, so I think the name of Galaxy S20 FE is a bit off topic at the beginning. If according to our thoughts, if it is called Galaxy S20 Lite, then I will understand.
But why should you buy a streamlined flagship phone that was only released in March, while the price of the Galaxy S20 is still the same or lower? After a quick Google search, I can find Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus in the UK for less than £600. Some of these models only have 4G capabilities, but the 4G S20 FE is priced at £599, so it is still far from cheap.
Don’t get me wrong: S20 FE is reasonably priced. It offers a lot of price tags, but the S20 has been on the market for six months, so its price is also high.
If I had to choose between an older but more expensive phone and a newer phone with a plastic case at a similar price, I would choose the former every time. Samsung has produced incredibly high-quality phones, which can be said to be worth more money. However, if you spend less money in six months to buy a mobile phone that can guarantee good performance for at least two years, then your price will be cheaper. I think this can make S20 FE controversial.
I do think that the Galaxy S20 FE does have an advantage over the S20, that is, the 5G version comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon865. This means that buyers in the UK and Europe will eventually be able to use new Samsung phones that are not equipped with Samsung. Exynos chip; It is generally believed that the performance of the Exynos chipset exceeds the Snapdragon 8 series. However, since the S20 is equipped with Snapdragon 865, this does not make much difference for American users.
In addition to the threats posed by the Galaxy S20 FE’s older counterparts, we are still working on a mid-range phone with an enviable list of specifications. As mentioned above, the S20 FE has a high refresh rate display and a camera that looks like an ape or may outperform the cameras on the S20 and S20 Plus, so the outlook is very attractive.
Samsung told me that the S20 FE aims to bridge the gap between flagship S series phones and low-end A series phones. Considering that not everyone has $1,000 to spend on flagship phones or sign expensive phone contracts, so this is a good idea.
But considering the compromise of the S20 FE, I think that $699 is the wrong price. Although the built-in Snapdragon 865 is great, it is equipped with 6GB of RAM instead of the 12GB in the S20. Therefore, it may not meet the expectations of power users.
Speaking of which, I think advanced users and those who are willing to spend more money on real flagship phones are those types of people.
Apart from these users and technical reporters, I am not sure if many people really notice the difference in performance. For example, there may be a difference between the prices of phones equipped with the latest version of Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 720, which are priced at $349. / £349 Google Pixel 4a.
I have been using the Snapdragon 865 sport Oppo Find X2 Pro (a phone that costs £1,099) and the Pixel 4a. Find X2 Pro feels a bit agile in daily use, but I never felt that the Pixel 4a would disappoint me. Moreover, the additional performance of Find X2 Pro cannot be compared with the price difference of £750.
The same can be said for phone photography. Now that’s great, you need to look for subtle differences by zooming in on the photo on the external monitor. Mobile phones priced under $500 can not only take photos suitable for social media use (from an interesting point of view, I don’t know that many people can print photos of smartphones), but some phones have impressive performance. E.g. $399 iPhone SE 2020.
Therefore, I find it difficult to see the convincing Galaxy S20 FE. As a suitable mid-range Samsung phone, it is not cheap enough. However, I think the compromise of high-end Samsung phones (high-quality materials and huge specifications) means that those who are willing to appreciate the products provided by S20 FE will be willing to spend more money to get a full-fat S20, especially its price from 999 US dollars Fall to.
If Samsung sets the price of the Galaxy S20 FE at around US$500, then the S20 FE will interest me. This means that S20 FE will eventually match Samsung Galaxy A71, And its price is $599. However, the price of the Galaxy A71 has dropped, so Samsung is certainly capable of launching a $500 phone.
S20 FE can indeed drop to this price. When sales events like Black Friday arrive, Samsung phones and their carrier contracts can be snapped up at low prices. If this happens, I will find myself recommending the S20 FE to those who want a cheap, powerful, and powerful camera phone.
For now, I am still confused and confused about the Galaxy S20 FE. and with Pixel 5 with OnePlus 8T I think just around the corner, we will see more impressive phones that may undercut the S20 FE at the current price. October cannot be here soon enough.
