Samsung has been in the mobile phone market for many years and has always had handsets on offer at every level, their two flagship ranges are the Note and the S-series, and they have broken with naming conventions jumping from the S10 to the S20 as a nod to the year 2020. Their phones are always well-received thanks to their attention to detail and quality.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5G Design and Screen
Infinity-O is the latest favoured screen for the S20 range, and it is basically a stunning infinity screen that falls away at the edges to give an almost wrap-around look. The handset has a distinct premium look and feel from the moment you take it out of the box. It is crafted from glass and aluminium and features Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and an IP68 rating so you can be assured that it is durable and robust enough to cope with daily life. The only break on the front screen is the punch hole selfie camera housing, and this does not detract from the overall beauty.
In terms of size you have a handset that sits at 6.7 inches which is well received with users specifically those who enjoy streaming television or playing games online, but still want a phone that fits nicely in the pocket. Technically it has a Dynamic AMOLED 2X capacitive touchscreen with 16M colours. There are 1440 x 3200 pixels, 20:9 aspect ratio, 525 PPI density and a screen-to-body ratio of 90.5%.
Turning the headset over you will see that the excellent design continues on the back with a nice clear panel that looks sleek. Near the bottom there is a single Samsung branding, while at the top left the camera housing is the main feature. It is set in a rectangular housing, and you can see there are four lenses stacked in a square with the LED flash below them.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5G Audio
When it comes to sound quality, you know that Samsung saves the best for the flagship handsets so you will have no problems at all with hands-free calls or streaming music on the loudspeaker. In keeping with other recent releases, they have chosen not to provide a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, making this a good time to switch to wireless or use the adapter if you really don't want to change.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5G Camera
Multiple lenses have become the norm on many high-end handsets, but it is still rare to see four. They create a really impressive performance enabling you to ditch your camera and just head out with the phone. The four lenses are a 12 MP, f/1.8, 26mm (wide), Dual Pixel PDAF, OIS, a 64 MP, f/2.0, (telephoto), PDAF, OIS, 3x hybrid optical zoom, a 12 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide), AF, Super Steady video and a 0.3 MP, TOF 3D, (depth). On the front, there is just a single lens, which again is most common and this is a 10 MP, f/2.2, 26mm (wide), 1/3.2", 1.22µm, Dual Pixel PDAF. Both front and back cameras are capable of capturing video in many different formats making this a compelling offering.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5G Features and Performance
We know that Samsung favours the Exynos chipset for the UK market, and they will need something sturdy for this handset. That is precisely what you get with the Exynos 990 (7 nm+) with an Octa-core (2x2.73 GHz Mongoose M5 & 2x2.60 GHz Cortex-A76 & 4x2.0 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU and a Mali-G77 MP11 GPU combination that work well together to create a fast and reliable performance. Being an Android handset you have the latest version 10.0 installed which will be upgradeable via updates when needed, and their proprietary look and feel skin the One UI 2.
There are three basic sizes of handset to choose from, 128GB 12GB RAM, 256GB 12GB RAM, or 512GB 12GB RAM, meaning that there shouldn't be any issues with storage. But if you happen to need more, you have the addition of the microSDXC card slot, and this gives you plenty of options when it comes to adding more.
The whole range comes with reverse charging capabilities which means you can use the handset as a power bank and charge other devices by placing them on the back of the phone. It can be charged wireless but does not come with a wireless charger, these are available separately, or you can use the fast charging cable in the box. The battery is a good size 4500mAh which gives you plenty of power for a day out and about away from the charger.
If you are looking for a high-end handset that comes with all the performance we have come to love from Samsung, then this could well be the handset for you. The inclusion of 5G makes it future proof and gives you a great phone for a stunning price.
