After launching the Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra in 2020, Samsung still had one last card up its sleeve: the Galaxy S20 FE (for Fan Edition). This smartphone has established itself as a more affordable version of the Galaxy S20. But be careful, don’t get me wrong. The Galaxy S20 FE is far from being a low-cost model with poor performance, quite the contrary! He currently finds himself at only €209.98 with €10.50 voucher in SuperPoints at Rakuten.
Let’s take stock together of the technical characteristics of this Galaxy S20 FE 5G. First, the device is equipped with a slab 6.5″ Super AMOLED in Full HD+ (2600 x 1080 pixels), with two options regarding the refresh rate: 60Hz or 120Hz.
A complete and flawless device
The Snapdragon 865 version offered here is 5G compatible and is supported by 6GB RAM and 128GB storage capacity, all expandable via a MicroSD card. On the photo side, we can count on a triple main sensor composed of a main sensor of 12 MP (f/1.8), a wide-angle sensor of 12 MP (f/2.2) and a wide-angle sensor of 8 MP (f/2.0). The front panel is occupied by a 32 MP sensor.
Much better battery life than the S20
Regarding autonomy, Samsung has chosen to include a 4500mAh battery in the S20 Fan Edition. As a reminder, the S20 had a 4000 mAh battery, often undermined by the high performance of the smartphone. With these additional 500 mAh, the Galaxy S20 FE is doing much better than its big brother in terms of autonomy: one day of normal use with 120 Hz activateda day and a half with the 60 Hz activated.
Last precision concerning the recharging, the smartphone is compatible with 25W fast charging, which allows you to go from 0 to 100% in 1 hour and 10 minutes. On the connector side, the Galaxy S20 FE 5G has a speaker and a USB Type-C port on the lower edge of the device. As usual on high-end smartphones from the South Korean manufacturer, you will have to do without a jack port. Do not panic, since Samsung provides wireless headphones in the box.
While it was released at a price of €759, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Edition 5G is currently available at €499, but at Rakuten we find it at only € 209.98.
