Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G in the test: The fourth Galaxy S20
Quite surprisingly, about seven months after the release of the Galaxy S20 series, Samsung is expanding its portfolio with another model: the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G. This is now the fourth Galaxy S20 model if you don’t differentiate between the 4G and 5G versions, which also still exist. The abbreviation “FE” stands for Fan Edition, according to Samsung a special model of the S20 family that is aimed specifically at die-hard Samsung fans. And the first innovations are already noticeable on the back.
Instead of just three colors, Samsung now offers six bright color variants with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G. Accordingly, the FE model is reminiscent of the Apple iPhone 11 in this respect, which also comes in striking color variations compared to its Pro brothers. Nevertheless, the South Korean manufacturer has again decided to follow a similar path as with the Galaxy Note 20 and does not use a glass or ceramic back, but a hard plastic one.
Samsung justifies this with customer feedback. Many would therefore prefer a polycarbonate back. Of course, this may also bring one or the other advantage, for example, if the cell phone kisses the ground roughly since the material is much more resistant. In fact, the processing is top, nothing creaks or wobbles on the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G. But if you expect materials like glass from a high-end cell phone, which are typical for a flagship, you should look for another smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G: display edges like in the old days
The front of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is very similar to that of other smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G family: it has an elongated OLED display with a small front camera in the form of a centered hole in the display and minimal screen edges all around. However, there is a difference: In contrast to all other Samsung flagships of this year, the side edges of the display are not rounded to the rear but end flat. Which variant you like better is a matter of taste.
The screen has a diagonal of 6.5 inches. This places the S20 FE 5G between the S20 and the S20 Plus. There is also a difference between the three other models in terms of resolution: Instead of a higher QHD resolution, Samsung uses a Full HD Plus resolution with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels. This results in a pixel density of over 400 PPI. This is easily enough for a high-resolution display, especially since many users of a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G model only see Full HD anyway due to the higher refresh rate of 120 Hertz; because QHD is not available in this mode.
The screen leaves a very good impression in practice and in the test lab. If bright ambient light falls on the sensor or you play an HDR video, then it shines very brightly in our test scenario with 919 cd/m². This means that the image content can be read very well under all lighting conditions. The color representation is great. The S20 FE covers 139 percent of the standard RGB color space and around 98 percent of the large DCI-P3 color space. The other S20 models offer a little more here, but few people will notice that.
4G vs. 5G: Two models, two processors
Samsung not only offers Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G model but also a 4G variant in the basic version. Both versions are identical except for two points: The more expensive model has a 5G modem and a different processor than the 4G version. While the LTE model works with Samsung’s own Exynos 990 processor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is responsible for the computing work inside the 5G model.
The fact that Samsung smartphones are partly delivered with Exynos and partly with Snapdragon processors is nothing new in itself. However, until now it has always depended on the location of the model users can buy. The European market has received models with the Exynos processor, while US customers have received the Snapdragon versions. The same smartphone with two different CPUs is now available worldwide.
According to statements from Samsung, these are two processors of equal value, but our test shows that there is a relevant difference. The performance is not the problem at all.
The Exynos system-on-chip weakens – in the battery test
As expected, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G shows a strong performance in our performance test. The Snapdragon 865 processor works with eight cores and achieves a clock speed of up to 2.84 gigahertz. In conjunction with six gigabytes of RAM, it achieves an excellent PCMark value of around 13,000 points. Our test PDF file also loads the cell phone in just 3.6 seconds. Top performance is pre-programmed here. But the 4G model also shows no weaknesses in these tests and delivers performance on par with the 5G version. But it loses in our battery test.
Both smartphones have a 4,500 mAh battery. With a runtime of 14:35 hours in 60 Hertz mode, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G not only leaves the S20 FE 4G but also all other current Samsung flagships well behind. The 4G model runs 3.5 hours shorter in the same test scenario. Amazing: Even in the optional 120 Hertz mode, which usually eats away at the battery, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G still runs for a strong 12:45 hours.
Both variants sprint from 0 to 100 percent battery capacity in around one and a half hours and are more than half charged after half an hour thanks to the 25-watt power supply unit. Both phones also support wireless charging.
Triple camera at the usual high level
The rear camera design is reminiscent of a hybrid between the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20. There’s a regular wide-angle camera with a resolution of 12 megapixels, an ultra-wide-angle camera with the identical resolution, and a telephoto lens with a triple hybrid zoom, but now with just still 8 megapixels.
Samsung has equipped the main and zoom cameras with an optical image stabilizer to enable smoother shots without blurring. This helps above all with video recording, which Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G handles with ease in 4K at 60 frames per second. You cannot record 8K videos with the FE model, which should not be a problem for most users.
In our laboratory test, we like the photo quality very much. Hardly anything is left to be desired in bright ambient light, but the post-processing style typical of Samsung is also evident here: strong saturation and sharpening cannot be overlooked. But the Galaxy S20 FE 5G also does a great job under difficult lighting conditions, whether with or without a tripod. Our expert in the test center gave the photo quality an overall rating of 1.3 (very good). And since the front camera has autofocus, the selfie quality is also at a high level.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G: what more could you ask for?
Lower prices for a smartphone are often noticeable in the equipment because manufacturers can easily save one or the other feature here. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G, on the other hand, is hardly inferior to the much more expensive top flagship Galaxy S20 Ultra. And that doesn’t just apply to the software, which is up to date with Android 10 and the OneUI 2.5 interface.
In terms of connectivity, the smartphone is state-of-the-art with Bluetooth 5.1, WiFi 6 (WLAN-ax), and a dual SIM slot. However, you can only use 5G with a SIM card. As an alternative to the second SIM card, the nominal 128 GB memory can be expanded via a microSD card.
The IP68 certification, which also protects the Galaxy S20 FE from the ingress of dust and water, is also very pleasing. And to the delight of all those who do not get along with the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor in the S10, Note10, S20, or Note 20 models, Samsung has something new in store: the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G uses an optical recognition method with the help of a camera below the display.
You can get the 5G version of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE at a recommended retail price of 750 euros (price comparison). The 4G version with a shorter runtime costs around 100 euros less at the time of the test (price comparison). In addition to the power supply unit and charging cable, the scope of delivery also includes a pre-installed screen protector.
