When it comes to the communication side, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE does not disappoint. It has everything that a flagship needs (even in the slightly weaker fan version). It supports 5G networks (though I did not have an opportunity to use them), a fast, dual-channel Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and a fast and precise navigation (GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo). From physical sockets, we have USB-C (USB 3.1 z OTG), we can place two SIM cards or one SIM and one microSD one. The phone only lacks a 3.5mm minijack.
The quality of calls is a Samsung standard – impeccable. We can hear our interlocutor loud and clear, the same goes for the other side of the call. The microphone for calls gathers the sound nicely, and the additional one for reducing noises works well for decreasing the sound from the surrounding – my interlocutors were not aware of any of them. The support for two SIM cards is an advantage as well – we can choose in settings which one is supposed to manage calls, texts and data transfer.
Memory and efficiency
The smartphone arrives with 128 GB of internal memory, out of which the user is left with around 104 GB after turning the phone for the first time.
We can choose between Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 (in the 5G version) and Exynos 990 (in the 4G version) when buying Galaxy S20 FE. In addition, there are different memory versions: 6/128 and 8/256. I received the version with the flagship Snapdragon and 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of the UFS 3.0 internal memory. The phone cannot be slow with this configuration – it works fast, smoothly and without any problems. We can overburden it with the most demanding apps and games, we can work with many apps in the background or use it as a PC (thanks to the DeX support) – it works wonderfully.
Thanks to the strong specification, which does not give way to flagships, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is different than typical models with Lite or Mini in their name. And it costs noticeably less. I definitely like such compromises.
