Our Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G Review

The new Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is Samsung’s spin on the Samsung S20 from early 2020, but a more affordable version of it. When the Samsung Galaxy S21 arrived in January 2020, the S20 series was discontinued, but the S20 FE wasn’t. So if you were looking to get Samsung’s flagship model but found it was too expensive, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G might be just the phone for you. 

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G: Display

The original S20 models had WQHD 3200 x 1440 resolutions, so with a 2400 x 1080 resolution (FHD+), the S20 FE sees a noticeable downgrade. But the S20 FE does have a 120hz refresh rate, which means it can at 120 frames per second which is twice as fast as regular smartphones that tend to have a max refresh rate of just 60hz. 

The Galaxy S20 FE has a screen size of 6.5 inches, which is bigger than the 6.2 inch display on the original S20, but still smaller than the 6.7 and 6.9 inch screens on the S20 Plus and S20 Ultra respectively. 

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G: Design

For S20 fans, the S20 Fan Edition carries over some design features of the original S20, such as the similar rectangular camera block on the back of the phone and the same positioning of the front-facing selfie camera. 

However, the Samsung S20 FE does have its differences. For starters, the S20 FE is actually bigger than the original S20 with dimensions of 159.8 x 74.5 x 8.4mm and corners of the screen don’t curve at all like they once did on the first S20. 

The back of the Samsung Galaxy FE is made to look like glass but is actually plastic, which does give it a slight budget-smartphone feel, but it does make it a lot tougher compared to other flagship smartphone models that are made predominantly from glass. 

Buyers have a huge range of colours to choose from, such as:

  • Cloud Lavender
  • Cloud Red
  • Cloud Orange
  • Cloud Mint
  • Cloud White
  • Cloud Navy

As with the other S20 models the S20 FE doesn’t come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is surprising considering Samsung’s older, cheaper models come with one. 

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G: Camera

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has three rear cameras: a 12MP main, a 12MP ultra-wide and an 8MP telephoto lens. 

The ultra-wide lens allows you to fit in almost double the amount of scene than the main camera allows and the telephoto camera has a 3x optical and 30x digital zoom which allows you to take pictures at range without losing too much detail. 

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G: Performance

The 5G version of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. Tests have been run and it gave a multi-core score of 3,130, which is just slightly more than the 3,034 the Galaxy S20 achieved when it was tested. So as you’d expect, performance is great on this phone, being able to run various different apps at once with no noticeable lag or delay.

How much is the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G?

For the Samsung Galaxy Fan Edition 5G-version of the handset, you’re looking at around £699, but the Fan Edition also comes in a 4G-version which is available for £100 cheaper at around the £599 mark.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G: Our Verdict

For Samsung fans who wanted the S20 but at the time couldn’t justify spending the money on it, the Galaxy S20 FE 5G is a great choice for the next-gen smartphone adopter. While the S21 is the obvious choice for a Samsung Galaxy fan, the cost of it might put a lot of people off, but with the Samsung Galaxy FE 5G a serious contender in the smartphone market, fans have another device to fall back on.
