S20 Fan Edition

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is a very interesting device. It takes the aspect of S20, Note20, and some of Samsung’s budget phones and combines them all into one single device. The 4G edition is coming in at Rs. 49,999.

On The Box

Let’s go ahead and open the box up. Now, inside the box, we have, firstly, a USB type A to USB type C cable and the device S20 FE.

Then there is a 15-watt fast charger. Now, although this is a 15-watt fast charger that’s included out of the box, this device can support up to 25 watts of fast charging.

As well as that, in the top section, you do get a SIM card tool with some people-work inside here.

There are six different colors available. And let’s straight away address this.

Build Quality of S20 FE

On the back, there is plastic. What Samsung called glasstic, which is a reinforced stronger version of plastic, shall we say. And does it feel as premium as glass? Of course, it doesn’t.

But personally speaking, I’m not complaining that we’ve got this back for the price that this is coming in at. Yes, this is not going to be as scratch resistant as glass but it is not likely to shatter as easily as glass is.

And honestly speaking, if you are going to be using a case on this anyway or putting on the skin, then I really don’t think it’s going to matter. Let me know in the comments below if this is something that’s a concern to you.

Now, we do have an aluminum frame, however, so the sides of the device do feel really premium.

And then we have a Gorilla Glass 3 front. Now, why is this Gorilla Glass 3 and not a later version of Gorilla Glass? I don’t know, maybe to reduce the price.

Now we do have IP 68 water and dust resistance and let’s straight away talk about the display of S20 FE.

Display

So we’ve got small bezels around the sides, but they are not as small as what we see on the flagship S20 series. And this is a flat display as well, unlike what we see on the S20 series as well.

However, this is a 120-hertz display, 6.5 inches, full HD Plus resolution, super AMOLED.

And that high refresh rates with 240 hertz of touch input means that things are very, very smooth. Now, yes, this isn’t quite HD like we have on other Samsung devices.

And in terms of my first impressions of the display, it’s very, very good. Again, at this price, it’s definitely impressive.

Now, in the display, you do have an optical in-display fingerprint scanner. Which seems to work absolutely fine. As well as a center punch outs for the front-facing camera.

Camera

There is a 32-megapixel front-facing camera with an f2.2 aperture. And let’s have a look at the rear-facing cameras because we have a triple camera set up as we have on the flagship S20 series.

The primary camera is practically the same. So it’s a 12-megapixel camera with an f1.8 aperture, dual pixel autofocus as well as optical image stabilization. So you’re not really getting a compromise here for the primary camera.

We then have the 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera with an f2.2 aperture. And finally, we have an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with optical image stabilization and an f2.4 aperture.

This will give you three times optical zoom and up to 30 times space zoom.

Physical Overview

Now let’s take a look around S20 FE, on the right-hand side we have a power button as well as the volume rocker.

Nothing on the left-hand side.

At the bottom, we’ve got the USB type C input. There’s the bottom-firing speaker but we do have stereo speakers, so there’s one in the earpiece and there’s one bottom-firing.

And at the top, there is the SIM card tray.

Now this SIM card tray also has space for a micro SD card so you can expand the storage on here as well. And you do get 128 gigabytes of UFS 3.1 storage.

Battery

For the battery, it is a very large 4,500 Mah battery. So that is the same size as what we’ve got on Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra, so a very good size which should last you all day long.

And as mentioned, we do have support for up to 25 Watts wired charging. Although the 15-watt charger is included in the box.

And you also have 15-watt wireless charging, including wireless power share which is reverse wireless charging. So you are ticking a lot of boxes here.

Software

For software, at this time, we have Android 10 with One UI and Samsung have promised three years of updates. So the S20 FE is going to be coming under that three-year update umbrella.

Processor

Now let’s talk about what’s powering the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, which is also quite impressive. This device is going to be powered by Exynos 990 octa-core processor.

Storage

You’ve got 8 gigabytes of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 gigabytes of UFS3.1 storage as well on S20 FE.

Conclusion

And that is the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Fan Edition. In my opinion, you can probably tell I’m definitely impressed at what you’re getting in this package for this price.
