Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Review
Samsung’s back with a meaner and cooler Samsung Galaxy smartphone in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE! Is it worth the price point? More importantly, what’s new with this one? You’ll find out in this Galaxy S20 FE review!
While the S20 FE does follow the standard stuff when it comes to design elements i.e. where the power button and volume rockers are situated, its the small details that make it a good buy for people like the finish and “feel” of the smartphone’s rear which is a nice composite of aluminum and plastic.
UI and UX Performance
The Galaxy S20 FE comes with the Android 10 and the One UI version 2.5. The One UI version is a lot cleaner and has less “invasive” tendencies with Bixby compared to previous models under the Galaxy S-series. You also really get to feel to enjoy the interface because of the screen refresh rate this phone boasts of.
I’m also happy to write down that this smartphone does not come loaded with too much bloatware, something that is starting to become an important aspect of my reviews here in Thefanboyseo.com. Number one would still have to be that pesky Google Assistant button which this phone also doesn’t have.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE camera is also one for the books. The triple camera system on this works and it’s one of those smartphones that proves that even if you don’t have 64 megapixels and above for your phone’s main camera, you still can get good photos out. You can also shoot in a number of different aspect ratios including:
Here are some sample shots from the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.
Outdoors with various aspect ratio and modes
Selfies come clean and good whether its indoors…
Or outdoors (by outdoor I mean inside the mall or places like that).
Mobile photography greatness can also be achieved through the S20 FE with the various modes available for users. Plus on my end as a content creator and toy enthusiast, the phone gives me a lot of options in terms of how to shoot my figures.
The phone has good zooming capabilities too. Check the set of photos below:
And its even made easier thanks to options for zooming found in the camera screen. This means its a good phone to pack when you travel or covering important events where you may end up at a distance from your subject.
The benchmark results for the phone is also promising. Wasn’t even expecting to get that result.
- Single-Core Score -924
- Multi-Core Score – 2675
While the smartphone is equipped with Samsung Exynos 990 octa-core CPU you’d think that they would be getting some good quality gaming. And for the most part, it does for casual games. The phone’s refresh rate helps in making the overall experience good but here comes the kicker; when playing mobile games in medium to high settings, the phone is prone to heating up. Dun Dun Dun!!!!
I can understand why it does too because the Exynos processor isn’t built for game. It’s built for multi-tasking and doing intense activities but it just can’t keep up with high-end games out in the market today like Genshin Impact which is featured above.
