Samsung Galaxy S20 FE did not show the qualities of a perfect ‘Lite” phone. But, the people having craze about the standard of Samsung S20 found the handset a little too costly. The S20 is based on three traits of S20: a fast screen revitalize level, good photography prospective, and a prevailing processor. It’s just an embarrassment that the design feels a little inexpensive, and the price isn’t as low as we hope.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition isn’t officially ‘Galaxy S20 Lite’ as many people were assuming. In fact, that difference is in name only, because the latest Galaxy phone is really a more reasonable twist on the Galaxy S20.
If you are attracted to Galaxy S20 then its cost ($999 / £899 / AU$1,499) will put you off. So, this Samsung S20 Fan Edition may be for you. It has many of the leading’s topmost features, comprising a fantastic-smooth 120Hz screen, suitable photography tricks, and a powerful processor at a lesser starting price.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is indeed more reasonable than the Main-Version S20, but it’s still costlier than many other mobile Phones having the same specs and features. If you are committed to the Samsung line and want something more than a Galaxy A series Phone then you should buy this. You can also get the same specs holding Phone from a Chinese Brand at half of this price.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is in a wide variety of stunning colors, range from pale mint to bright red and furthermore. The design could be troublesome though, the screen does not curve at the edges with a plastic back handset which makes this model relatively inexpensive in hand.
Battery and Camera
Another concern is that the battery life feels deficient. With heavy or medium work battery does not remain full day. By taking a lot of photos or playing lengthy games we have to charge it in the evening. This is probably a due couple of its power-consuming features comprising the 5G connectivity and 120Hz screen. So, if you don’t use them much, your phone can standby the whole day easily.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE’s positive features compensate for the negative ones. Lots of the Samsung Galaxy S20’s camera specs are revised here, like Single Take in which all three rear cameras use in taking photos and making a video. An enhanced Night Mode in which the large main camera sensor is used. Samsung’s brilliant scene optimization is here too that helps you to take great snaps.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is good but not outstanding. While it’s perhaps not the best application of a ‘Galaxy S20 Lite’ we have ever seen, it’s still noticeable.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Availability and Price
The Launching of the Samsung S20 FE was on September 23, 2020, and was presented to buy on October 2. That release date was approximately six months after the launch of Galaxy S20. Before these six months, we see its successor –The Galaxy S21 / S30.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Design
- No curved-edge screen
- Glassy Backside
- A vast range of shades
At first sight the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE looks as same as Galaxy S20 – the same rectangular rear camera block, and a front- snapper locating on the same point as locating at the S20, but when you look deeper the distinctions begin to arise. Initially, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is greater in dimensions 159.8 x 74.5 x 8.4mm than the S20. Secondly, the boundaries of the screen are not in the curve at all, so the phone doesn’t feel at ease in the hand.
The back of the handset is a little curved, and this builds up for the absence of the curved edges of the screen for sake of hand feel to some extent. Instead, a shrill but clear bezel surrounds the screen. This design spec tends to highlight in lower-end handsets. That’s why the Samsung Galaxy S20FE look is a little inexpensive.
The Back of Samsung S20 FE’s is composed of ‘Glassy’, plastic that looks and feels more similar to premium glass. But this trick did not work. However, Glasstic is very premium plastic in touch and texture, and it’s a doubtful design selection for a handset that costs too much – Although, many Motorola phones are available at a fraction of prices and look more classy in hands.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Display
- Screen with a 6.5-inch display
- FHD+ resolution
- A refresh rate of 120Hz
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition has a screen of FHD+, or 2400 x 1080, resolution. That is a great standard for a smartphone, but the S20 phones had WQHD 3200 x 1440 resolutions. This shows one of the noteworthy relegates for the S20’s ‘lite’ version.
The refresh rate is 120Hz though, which the display apprises 120 times per second, which is twice the standard of other smartphones (including the Note 20 having 60Hz). A higher refresh rate runs motion appearance slicker, whether in playing games or swiping the menus. Whatever you are doing, depending on your work 120Hz is the maximum setting which you can adjust setting up to 60Hz to save your battery life.
Rear Camera of Samsung S20 FE
- 12MP Main + 12MP Ultra-wide with 8MP telephoto
- Selfie camera 32MP Ultra-wide lens
- Tons of valuable camera modes
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition has three rear cameras, 12MP main, 12MP ultra-wide, and 8MP telephoto. Although having these top-spec Samsung S20 FE seems inferior to those of Samsung S20 phone. The main camera with a large sensor helps to see light, Therefore, photos looked clear and bright. So, everything from Blue skies to colorful flowers looks bold and perky.
Now and again, colors are considered a little too bold though, as though the sight optimization had gotten fanatical, forming images that look rather artificial. You can easily turn off this meting out feature though. The Night mode is mainly useful, as it uses the focal camera’s large sensor that takes snaps clear in a low light setting. It is so easy to use, as you don’t need to hold the handset for too long, as some night modes need to do. The resulting pictures are pretty good.
Samsung S20 FE has a Front Selfie Camera with 32 MP. Selfies look attractive at the default settings, with precise and suitable background blur, while using Live Focus Mode on selfies. So, you can control the image background effects and many other edits. In Samsung S20 FE, Both front and back cameras can record video up to 4K 60fps. There is also Pro video mode similar to a Pro-photo mode that helps in the adjustment or editing of video and photos.
