The Samsung Galaxy S20 Range of Phones: What You Need to Know

It seems as if just yesterday we were discussing the merits associated with the Samsung Galaxy S10.  Times certainly change, as the Galaxy S20 iteration has hit the marketplace.  What do the stock S20, the S20+ and the S20 Ultra have in store if you have been looking to upgrade from a previous version?  Let’s take a quick look at the S20 before moving on to examine the S20+ and the S20 Ultra.

The Samsung Galaxy S20

It needs to be mentioned that the S20 series represents one of the first 5G phones to hit the markets.  If you have been frustrated with connectivity or speed issues in the past, the S20 could represent a dream come true.  Furthermore, the camera upgrade associated with this series seems to be rather impressive.  It can only be assumed that further information will become available as users begin to explore their options.  

Samsung has not skimped on their display, and this should come as no surprise.  While a size of 6.2 inches might be slightly smaller when compared to other models, a more fluid sense of playback and the ability to handle 8K (yes, we said 8K) resolutions is simply astounding.  

A triple camera configuration and an increased pixel size to 1.8 microns seems quite promising and Samsung claims that its night vision option is the best that it has offered to date.  On a final note, the resolution associated with its built-in telephoto lens has jumped from 12 to 64 megapixels; not a fact to be taken lightly.  

Performance is nominal and 128 gigabytes of storage can be enhanced through the use of a Micro SD card.  122 gigabytes of RAM and a 4,00 mAh battery round out the main features of the S20.

What About the S20+ and the S20 Ultra?

There are several differences between these upgrades and the standard S20 series.  The main difference involves size as well as camera resolution.  For example, the S20+ and the Ultra have augmented their displays to a massive 6.9 inches.  This is almost bordering on too large for the average user and yet, they are ideal for video enthusiasts or if you enjoy watching HD videos while out and about.

The cameras have likewise been improved.  The S20+ offers a 12 MP camera and the Ultra has been equipped with a 48-megapixel 4x optical zoom.  The 40 MP front-facing camera on the S20 Ultra is likewise a far cry from the 10 megapixels offered by the standard S20.  

Which is the Better Choice?  

We need to keep in mind that you will be paying up to $200 dollars more for either of these models and while issues such as an increased battery life alongside a larger display and more precise camera are important, these are more bells and whistles as opposed to functional necessities.  Still, both the S20+ and S20 Ultra could be ideal options if you are keen to purchase an upmarket phone or if you are a fan of the entire Galaxy series.
