The technology world is ever-changing, and we are continually being treated to newer and better devices every day. The tech giants are always locking horns with flagship products that continue to amaze us. Samsung has not been left behind with their new line of Galaxy S20 line of phones that are meant to help users access the 5G network
being rolled out across several parts of the globe. This line of phones has revolutionized the mobile handset world and read on to find out what they are all about if you are interested in buying one.
These three phones are similar models of different sizes. Their overall design is uniform, with the body being made of metalcore and glass front and back, sporting a punch-hole camera in the display and reduced bezels. They have an Infinity-O display that has curved edges. The display is 120 Hz, but their screen sizes are different. The display has an optimal resolution of 1080p as opposed to the superior 1440p resolution at 60 Hz.
At the back of the phones, there is a bump that holds the cameras. There were no attempts to make these cameras blend into the phone’s body as they are designated to stand out. The core hardware running the system is all the same, and it all depends on the region you buy your phone in. The two processors are either the Samsung Exynos 990 or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. The hardware comes with a 12 GB RAM across all the devices, but with the S20 ultra, you have an option of stepping up to a 16 GB RAM device.
How Are They Different?
The phones have different dimensions as follows:
• Galaxy S20 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9mm
• Galaxy S20+: 161.9 x 73.7 x 7.8mm
• Galaxy S20 Ultra: 166.9 x 76 x 8.8mm
The ultra is the largest one of the three, with the S20 being the smallest. The overall build and quality of the phones are similar with the size difference offering customers a range of sizes to pick from. However, they are larger than previous models but with smaller bezels.
Looking at the dimensions, it is evident that the displays are different, with the S20 being the smallest and the S20 ultra being the one with the largest screen. They have a 6.2, 6.7 inch, and 6.9-inch displays respectively. They are meant to give you a choice between a big, small, and middle-level phone when choosing between the three. The screens are AMOLED and offer a 120 Hz refresh rate at Full HD.
The Galaxy S20 has a 4000mAh battery, the S20+ 4500mAh, and the S20 ultra a 5000mAh cell. This directly implies that the smaller phones have batteries with lower power capacity and the larger ones a bigger one. You will get longer battery life with the larger phone even if it has a larger display to power. This conclusion has been arrived at by assessing the performance of differently sized phones with varying capacities in the past. However, the S20 ultra’s battery performance has been noted to go down a bit, especially when using the camera, and it is essential to look into that before buying it.
This is an area that most of you will be interested in when comparing these phones. The main difference between these sets of phones is in the cameras. To start with, the S20 and S20+ are more or less the same, save for the sizes and the time of flight sensor in the S20+.
This sensor translates in a real difference as opposed to what we have seen in different related devices that had this sensor but no real difference. The main cameras are similar, a 12-megapixel sensor with a massive 1.8 µm pixels. This helps you when capturing images in low light. They also have a 64- megapixel telephoto camera.
The Galaxy s20 ultra camera is entirely different. The 12-megapixel camera is common to all three devices, but the ultra-model has a 108-megapixel sensor for the primary camera. This is coupled with a 48-megapixel telephoto, which is simply a ten times hybrid periscope lens. That set gives you an impressive 100x zoom, which is a bit overrated since photos taken at this zoom level cannot look great.
How much do you have to part with if you wish to buy any of these models? The prices of these handsets vary significantly as expected due to the disparity in screen sizes as the core hardware capabilities are more or less the same. The S20 ultra has a hefty price tag, and the S20 + might be the one with a more favorable price tag for many, looking at the performance and features it has to offer. The S20 comes at a low price since it is a 4G one. Note that the prices vary across regions, and the current advertised prices can be found here.
Some of the features distinguishing the Samsung GalaxyS20, S20+, and S20 ultra have been highlighted, and it has been seen that they are not all that different. The S20 ultra has an edge in regards to the camera and other features, but this comes at a cost. You will have to pay a significant amount for this phone. The S20 has a disadvantage in that it is a 4G phone, something that puts it at a disadvantage in the upcoming telecommunication world. When you compare them with the previous line of Samsung phones, these phones are clearly at the top, given their superior specifications.
If you are investing in such a fancy phone, it just makes sense to ensure that it is protected since repairing it can cost you an arm and a leg. It might be a good idea to invest in a durable phone cover such as our AraMag™ case that'll keep your device safe and beautiful. That way, you won’t be worried about your phone getting scratched, dinged or worse when life happens.
