Samsung Galaxy S20 vs Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Comparison

Samsung S20 vs S20 FE: which is better?

Which is better for you: the Samsung Galaxy S20 or the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE? The Samsung S20 FE (Fan Edition) is an affordable and stripped-back version of the Samsung S20, but even so, both are excellent smartphones.

The Galaxy S20 is the best in terms of storage, battery life and video quality.

If you need a lot of space for games, videos and files, then the Samsung Galaxy S20 is a good option. The S20 offers 8GB of RAM while the Galaxy S20 FE only offers 6GB. This translates into faster speeds and multitasking for the Samsung S20.

Although the Samsung S20 FE has a larger battery, the Galaxy S20 lasts about an hour longer in comparable use. The Samsung S20 FE also does not charge as quickly as the S20.

Both smartphones have a triple camera setup, with the Samsung S20 FE offering a better front camera resolution of 32 MP (compared to 10 MP for the S20). But that changes with the video camera resolution since you can shoot 6K with the S20 and only 1080p for the Samsung S20 FE.

Looking for a good deal on a large screen phone? Choose the Samsung S20 FE

The Samsung S20 FE has a larger 6.5-inch screen compared to the 6.2-inch screen on the S20. Looking at these two smartphones side by side, you'll likely agree the S20 has a nicer design thanks to the sleek glass back compared to the plastic back on the Samsung S20 FE. But if the colour of your smartphone is important, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has more options available with 6 choices instead of the S20's 4.

If you're concerned about your budget, the Galaxy S20 FE's lower price point is an ideal option, as it's around £50-100 cheaper than the Galaxy S20.

Samsung S20 vs S20 FE: which should you buy?

If you're looking to save money, the Samsung S20 FE makes the most sense, but if you prefer a quality look and feel and a sharper screen, we suggest the Samsung S20.
