REASONS TO BUY
The first Samsung smartphone is the entry-level Samsung Galaxy S20. Upon first glance, it’s a smartphone with high-end specs that comes with a 6.2-inch display, 4000 mAh battery with a triple-lens camera. At this stage, Samsung has confirmed only one model was released with emphasis on the 128GB internal storage at 8GB memory. It’s also packed with standard high-end features such as wireless charging; water and dust resistance; an on-screen fingerprint scanner; good camera specs optimized for capturing 4K images and video; etc.
The starting price for this Samsung smartphone is US$999. No special bundles or promotions mentioned yet for this model. If the price is too high but needs a good high-end smartphone, there’s always the alternative option to get 2019’s Samsung smartphone: Samsung galaxy S10e. It’s still a good performance smartphone and will be much cheaper. Look out for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S20 scheduled for 6 March 2020.

REASONS TO BUY
The second smartphone in the Samsung Galaxy S20 series is the Samsung Galaxy S20+. It comes with a larger 6.7-inch display, a 4500 mAh battery, and a quad-camera lens. The hardware specs are the same as the S20 except for the bigger battery, bigger screen, and extra camera lens to help capture the depth of images and videos. Samsung has confirmed only two models released with emphasis on internal storage, namely 128GB and 512GB models. It’s also packed with standard high-end features such as wireless charging; water and dust resistance; an on-screen fingerprint scanner; 4K image and video capture; etc. The price is high. The more features it comes with, the higher the price.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra
Network: up to 5G | Display: 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED HDR+ (1440 x 3200) | Weight: 222 g | OS: Android 10 | Processor: Exynos 990 (Global)/ Snapdragon 865 (USA) | Storage/memory: 128GB/12GB, 512GB/16GB | Main camera: 108MP (wide), 48MP (telephoto), 12MP (ultrawide), 0.3MP (depth), Selfie camera: 40MP (wide) | Battery: Non-removable Li-Po 5000 mAh battery | Release date: Expected March 6, 2020
REASONS TO BUY
The next smartphone in the Samsung Galaxy S20 series is the ‘big brother’ Samsung S20 Ultra. This phone comes with an even bigger 6.9-inch display with a quad camera and a 5000 mAh battery. Now you see I call it the ‘big brother’. This one has all the makes to take the top prize this year. It comes with a good quality high-resolution camera, with up to an insane zoom function. It’s like a little micro telescope that has shrunk into a mobile phone. It’s also packed with high-end features such as fast wireless charging; water and dust resistance; an on-screen fingerprint scanner; a high-quality display; etc. The list is endless. But the sad thing is that it’s the most expensive smartphone today.
These smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy S20 series are great: they come with good quality features and great design. But there’re things I feel I should voice out. Firstly, most of the major internal hardware is the same, with the exception of hardware exclusive to the U.S. Market. I don’t understand why we cannot all get the same hardware specs in all regions.
Secondly, it’s understandable that the latest Samsung phone prices are pretty high, but with very few changes between the three S20/S20+/S20 Ultra models, one would have doubts if the phones are worth the purchase.
Thirdly, the added camera quality and features are the main big change here with promises to enhance the capturing of videos and images. Sounds like Samsung’s competing with the latest iPhone smartphones, increasing the competition. As a tech junkie, I’d say get it. If you have the money, get it. If you a fan of Samsung smartphones go and get it.
For normal phone users, I would advise you to wait until the price goes down for these Samsung smartphones. There are many other alternatives right now to feast your eyes on. And because of the latest mobile releases, prices for older model phones will surely decrease.
These are great releases in the Samsung Galaxy S20 series. Samsung has come with a better release than the S10 series smartphones with an emphasis on pumping up the camera quality.
