Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 2022 is one of those few all-rounder phones that delivers a great value for money. In fact, it is one of the best phones you can buy in its segment. Its strength is its cameras, performance, affordability, and display. Key areas where it could have been better are design and battery. Considering the competition, the phone comes at a relatively affordable starting price of €520 (approx. $547). The phone has a plastic back, aluminum frame, and a Gorilla Glass 3 protected glass front. While the device does feel solid in hand and has IP68 certification, the omission of a glass back is pretty disappointing.
The gadget measures 6.29 by 2.93 by 0.33 inches and weighs 190 grams. It should also be mentioned that the phone has curved edges, which makes it easy to hold. It comes in Cloud White, Cloud Lavender, and Cloud Navy. The battery lasts for around 1.5 days if you’re an average user, but only if the refresh rate is set to 60 Hz. In case you set it to 120 Hz, the battery backup will be about a day. The phone has a 4500 mAh Li-Ion battery with support for 25W fast charging. At this price, you can get phones that support 67W charging. This is a major con of owning Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 2022.
On top of that, the supplied charger is only 15W. Therefore, you need to spend more if you want to make use of 25W fast charging. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 2022 has a 6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen with support for HDR10+. The phone not only has a screen-to-body ratio of 85.7% and a PPI density of 405 but can also go up to 679 nits of brightness. Looking at the specs, it’s safe to say that the display quality is awesome. The presence of AKG-tuned high-resolution audio and stereo speakers contributes to a multimedia experience that is just as good. The processor used here is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G, which delivers amazing overall performance.
Similarly, the GPU used here is Adreno 650. Out of the box, the phone runs One UI 4.1 and Android 12. It’s nice to see Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 2022 running Android 12 as many phones still come with Android 11. The device has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. It supports an SD card, but it comes at the cost of using your second SIM, as the phone has a Hybrid slot. The phone can handle connections up to 5G, which is no surprise. In the communication area, the phone has dual-band Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, USB On-The-Go, and USB Type-C 3.2.
When it comes to sensors, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 2022 has all the usual sensors. What the phone also supports are Samsung Pay and Bixby natural language commands and dictation. Coming to cameras, the phone has a 12 MP wide-angle camera with Dual Pixel PDAF and OIS, an 8 MP telephoto camera with PDAF, OIS, and 3x optical zoom along with a 12 MP ultrawide camera. The 32 MP wide-angle front camera handles the selfie duties. Contrary to what it might look like on paper, the phone’s overall camera performances are superb. Its camera features include auto-HDR and gyro-EIS. Video recording is supported up to 4K.
