samsung s20 reviews
The Samsung Galaxy S20 is part of the most cutting-edge of Samsung’s S20, it’s a powerful phone with an ergonomic and attractive design, and the introduction of new features like 5G, the 120Hz display and upgraded rear cameras make it an outstanding handset in its own right.
Design and Display
In terms of body design, there is nothing too special or different between the Galaxy S20 and this one. It’s just the same design and display. The handset still maintains a classic and premium body. It’s built with a combination of aluminum frames and glass. It has body dimensions of 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9 mm and weighs 163 grams. You will get a Samsung Pay which is Visa and MasterCard certified. The IP68 rating on the device shows it’s dust and water-resistant. It can survive up to 1.5m for 30 mins in water. The Samsung Galaxy S20 has a 6.2-inch display, offering exactly 0.1-inch more screen real estate than 2019’s 6.1-inch S10. It doesn’t dramatically change the overall size of the phone, and its max resolution remains the same as that of recent Samsung Galaxy S models at WQHD+ (3040 x 1440). Samsung is still offering a default resolution of Full HD+ (2220 x 1080), which looks more than sharp enough for most tasks, and saves battery; you’ll need to head into the settings to switch to the higher resolution.
On the camera, it comes with a 12MP primary sensor with 1/1.76” sensor size.
