Samsung Galaxy S20+ Review

Last year, in 2019, for the first time in the Samsung Galaxy S10 series, the company introduced 3 models in which one model was of the Samsung Galaxy S10E. It was the lowest priced model that people were considering as the economic version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 series. At the same time, for 2020, people were hoping that something similar would happen in the Samsung Galaxy S11. But about a month before the launch, it was revealed through a leak that this time it is not only the Samsung Galaxy S11 but the company is going to launch the Samsung Galaxy S20 series by taking the number 10 leap together. Yes, in February the company introduced three models simultaneously in the Samsung Galaxy S20 series. The Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra were launched along with the Samsung Galaxy S20 and we have the Samsung Galaxy S20+ model available for review. In detail about what we experienced during the use of about 10 days. Let's start with the design.

Samsung has been using glass for many years in the Galaxy S series and this time too it is similar. 

This Samsung Galaxy S20+ Smartphone  is built on a metal frame and you will see glass in the front and back. It is curved on both sides, so it feels very comfortable to hold. The matter of build quality is fantastic. This Samsung Galaxy S20+ will make you feel of premium quality.

This Samsung Galaxy S20+ has been introduced in Aura Blue, Coskim Gray and Cloud Pink color, which looks quite beautiful. However before that I was using Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ and in the case of Colors, I liked that phone more. Yes!  One thing that can be said well in this is that the fingerprints in the previous panel are quite low.

Talking about the port placement of the Samsung Galaxy S20+, on the right side you will find the volume rocker and power button while the SIM slot is at the top. The lower panel has a USB Type-C port and a loudspeaker grill. In the rear panel of Samsung Galaxy S20+, the camera sensor, flash light and voice cancellation button will be found in a square-shaped box.

Overall, in terms of the look, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ is very stylish to look at and despite having a large screen, the design is so good that it easily falls into the palm. The weight is only 186 grams with slick design. In such a situation it feels very good. If you walk with your hand or pocket, you will not feel heavy.

The self-pack has a silicone cover which I don't like at all. Because if you take a premium quality phone and spend a good budget on it, then you also hope for better accessories.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ has a 6.7-inch screen and the company has equipped it with a lot of advanced technology. The Samsung Galaxy S20+ has used Dynamic Amoled 2x capacitive touch screen. The Samsung Galaxy S20+'s screen resolution is 1440 x 3200 pixels and it has been introduced with a 20: 9 aspect ratio. In the middle of the screen you will see a punch-hole display as we saw earlier in the Note 10. It has been named Infinity O Display by Samsung.  Another good thing that can be said here is that the punch-hole display has become even smaller than before.

The biggest change in the Samsung Galaxy S20+ display this time is that the company has used a 120 Hz refresh rate and due to this the Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone has become even smoother. At the same time, the screen is HDR 10 Plus certified, in such a way it will give you a great experience. Screen Protection has a Gorilla Glass 6 coating on both the front and back of Samsung Galaxy S20+.

Apart from the adaptive brightness with the Samsung Galaxy S20+ screen, you get features such as screen mode, bluelight filter and resolution control. During the Samsung Galaxy S20+ review, we rarely used it on QHD. Because this greatly affects the battery. At the same time, even in normal use, if the refresh rate is kept at 60 Hz then only the consumption of the battery is reduced. After knowing everything, one thing has to be said is that Samsung was the best in display even before and no one can match it even today. The display quality is excellent and the touch response is superb.

Samsung Galaxy S20+ : Hardware & Performance

Samsung Galaxy S20+ has been introduced by the company on the Exynos 910 chipset.  Although a model with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset is also available in some countries, but in India, the company has brought Exynos based phones. Along with this, the Mali-G77 MP11 GPU has been given. For processing, it has an octa-core processor that comes with a 2 × 2.73 GHz Mongoose M5 + 2 × 2.50 GHz Cortex-A76 + 4 × 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 processor.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone is available with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB memory. The Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone has a hybrid slot where in the second slot you can use a SIM card or microSD card. The Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone has up to 512 GB card support. The company has equipped the storage with UFS 3.0 technology. That is, introduced with Ultra Fast 3.0 technology which stores faster data than before. However before Samsung we have seen this technology in OnePlus and Xiaomi.

As far as performance is concerned, there is no doubt that it is very spectacular but it cannot be called the fastest. On the N2,2 score and benchmark it falls slightly behind Apple. At the same time, the UI of Samsung is a bit slow. However, it is not that you will have a hang problem or the Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone gets stuck somewhere. Rather the app takes a little time while opening an open or heavy game. Yes, one thing will definitely say that after 120 Hz refresh rate screen, it seems smooth.

Samsung Galaxy S20+ : The Camera

Although the 108-megapixel camera sensor has been manufactured by Samsung itself, it was not used in Samsung phones till now. It has been introduced for the first time in the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. Speaking of the Samsung Galaxy S20, the company has introduced the S series phones for the first time with a 64 MP camera. Earlier, Galaxy had launched in the A70S and A71. But here, let me tell you one thing that the main camera of Samsung Galaxy S20+ is not 64 megapixels. This quad camera setup is provided. The main sensor is of 12 MP with f / 1.8 aperture. It has wide angle support. Along with this, dual pixels, PDAF and OIS support have also been provided. The second sensor is of 64 MP and it comes with f / 2.0 aperture. This is a telephoto lens. In this also you will get PDAF, OIS support. With this, up to 3x high optical zoom has been given.

The third sensor of Samsung Galaxy S20+ is12 MP and it comes with f f / 2.2 aperture. It is an ultraviolet lens and has super steady video support. Along with this, the fourth sensor of Samsung Galaxy S20+ is VGA resolution, which acts as a TOS 3D sensor and this depth sensing.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone will also get a live focus video feature with live focus photos, which we saw for the first time in Note 10. Along with this, audio zoom has also come from Note 10. If we talk about zoom, then let me say that this Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone supports digital zoom up to 30X. Although the zoom up to 5X is still correct and to a lesser extent you will be able to use 10X as well, but 30X gets quite pixelated. When used on a tripod in day light condition, some success can be achieved. That is, it will click this slightly better photo with 30x zoom.

As far as normal photos are concerned, it will not disappoint there. This Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone also has the power to give a good competition to the iPhone 11. Even in low light it will not be called less than anyone. Even in utter darkness, it clicks a good image. At the same time, the use of flash in dark condition is also very helpful.

If you compare it with Samsung Galaxy S10 or Note 10 series then the camera has been upgraded significantly. Quality has become much better than before. Changes will be seen everywhere, whether it is wide angle or blur effect.

However, the most upgrade has happened in the video segment. The video study mode is quite impressive. Although the quality is a bit dull, but the shoot feels exactly like Gimbals.  Apart from this, live video and wide angle video also makes it stand out further than other phones. This time a single take mode has been given which produces a collage of video and image. This is a new feature which is quite impressive. Overall, the camera segment has become quite strong and challenges any flagship phone.

This Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone works on Android operating system 10 and Samsung's One UI 2.0 will be seen. In some phones including Note 10 Plus, we used One UI 2.0 in the past, so there was not much newness. Yes, some good options like screen recorder and music share have come this time, which users have been demanding for a long time.  Especially screen recorders. At the same time, apart from the kids mode in the Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone, there is also focus mode where if you are studying or doing something special, then it will turn off all apps and notifications so that your focus is not disturbed again and again. The notification of only those apps will come to you.

It has Microsoft Windows Apps pre-loaded and you can connect to it with a single click. Along with this, apps like Netflix and YouTube Music are preloaded. It does not have aspen but note feature will be available and you can draw anything with your finger. Apart from this, handwriting recognition is also supported.

This Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone has dual sim support and you can take advantage of 4G on both. Although it also has a 5G model outside but the company has not launched it in India. In addition to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, NFC has also been provided in it, which is useful not only in payment but also in charging accessories. Apart from this you will get USB Type-C port but there is no 3.5mm audio jack. However, Type-C earphones are available with the sales pack, which can be called a good thing. The thing about security is the in-display fingerprint scanner. But you can say that this time is not too fast. There is one thing that in the beginning it seems very slow but as you use it gradually becomes a little faster.

Samsung Galaxy S20+ : Waterproofing

Like Samsung's other flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ is also IP68 certified.  That is, it can remain in one and a half meters of water for 30 minutes. We also did a water test and got it right. At the same time it could be said that this video was also playing under water. Apart from this, there is dustproof.

For music, this Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone comes with Dolby Integration and apart from earphones, you can also feel it on loudspeaker.

For power backup, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ has a 4500 mAh battery. It supports fast charging up to 45 W. However, the company has given a 25 W charger with a sales pack. It takes a little over an hour to be fully charged with the charger provided with the sales pack.  Talking about Samsung Galaxy S20+'s battery backup, with full HD resolution and at 60 refresh rate, after a good use, it takes out a day comfortably. This Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone lasted 14.5 hours in PC Mark. Which can be said to be a good thing. Yes if you use it at 120 refresh rate then it becomes difficult to take a full day.

The conclusion


After testing the Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone, it comes to conclusion that it can be said that Samsung has strengthened its flagship series with the Samsung Galaxy S20+. It has become much better in terms of design, display, performance, especially camera. At the same time, battery backup has also become better than before. Yes, when you talk about the price a little bit on the pocket. In the Indian market, this Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone is available for Rs 73,999 and after seeing everything, it will be said that it is a bit expensive. Yes!  This much will definitely say that if you are thinking about buying iPhone 11, then it is definitely necessary to see this phone. In many cases it proves to be much better than that.
