Samsung GalaxyS20 FE 5G evaluation: the price of the emperor is more affordable

With the Galaxy S20 5G series flagship phones in the first half of the year, Samsung occupies an important position in the field of flagship mobile phones this year. Even after more than half a year, looking at the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G series phones now, it is still a worthy choice. Cell phone. Of course, as a flagship, the price of Samsung Galaxy S20 5G series phones is naturally higher, especially for some young users, the price is also an important factor in choosing a phone.

Based on user feedback, Samsung launched a new Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G smartphone, which continues the flagship performance and excellent display of the Galaxy S20 5G series, but the price is lower than the Galaxy S20 5G series, plus colorful Color matching, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is more suitable for young users to choose.

Let's take a look at its hardware configuration table:

From the configuration point of view, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G still has the flagship level. The 190g body is important and very thin, which will bring a more comfortable experience.

Exterior

This time, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G launched five different colors, including whimsical blue, inspiration red, fantasy purple, photosynthetic green, and airspace white, each with its own style. In terms of body color, it is richer than the previous Galaxy S20 5G series. Due to the change in the material of the back cover, the visual effects and grip texture are also slightly different from those of the Galaxy S20 5G.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G uses a 6.5-inch full HD full-view screen on the front, with a hole in the middle. The front visual effect is similar to that of the Galaxy S20 5G, and the direct-screen design will actually perform better in terms of control, and there will be no false touches.

The screen of Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G also supports a 120Hz refresh rate, which is a great boon for gamers, and it will also be smoother in daily use.

The hole diameter in the middle is very small, which is a good solution before the large-area application of the camera under the screen.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G uses a metal middle frame design. The metal middle frames on both sides are spliced with the back panel of the fuselage, which is more natural. The back cover is designed with a curved surface, and the grip feels good.

There are no buttons on the left side of the fuselage, and the volume button and power button on the right.

The upper part of the fuselage is a SIM card slot and a noise reduction microphone.

The bottom of the fuselage has a TypeC interface, speakers and noise reduction microphone.

What we got this time is the fantasy purple color scheme. Although it is called fantasy purple, it looks somewhere between purple and pink. It has the same effect as the Galaxy S20 5G soft fog powder color scheme, and it looks really "fantastic". Holding it in his hand, without the coldness of the glass, there is a touch of "warmness". Under the light, a certain angle will emit a different kind of light, pink or purple, it seems that it is not so important.

Unlike the special editions of large LOGO launched by major manufacturers, SAMSUNG’s LOGO is located under the fuselage, leaving the largest area to Fantasy Purple.

The rear lens module of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G adopts a rectangular design, which is slightly higher than the rear cover. The 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 12MP wide-angle lens and 8MP telephoto lens are lined up, with a flash on the right. However, the large area of black bars under the flash seems to be a little empty. If you can add some lens parameter information, it might look better.

On the whole, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G has a good performance in terms of appearance and feel, and the rear shell material can also alleviate the problem of fingerprints.

Performance Testing

As a flagship mobile phone, the performance of Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is nothing to worry about. As for the performance, let’s run a run. AnTuTu 581972, it can be seen that although the Snapdragon 865 processor is the same as the Galaxy S20 5G, detailed information about this "old friend" will not be repeated, but half a year later, Samsung let the Snapdragon 865 release stronger performance and run points There is an improvement of about 30,000 points.

In the game test session, we tested two national-level mobile games-"Honor of the King" and "Peace Elite".

First, open the "King of Honor" to try, all the special effects are full, the average number of frames is 60, and the play is silky smooth.

"Peace Elite" has higher hardware performance requirements due to official restrictions. Ultra HD is limited to 40 frames, and the number of frames is basically at the upper limit of 40 frames.

The special effects are slightly reduced to HDR. Since "Peace Elite" does not open a high frame rate to the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, the frame rate is limited to 60 frames, and 60 frames are also "locked" during play.

As the flagship processor of the year, the gaming performance of the Snapdragon 865 naturally does not have to be worried.

Experience

Unlocking is the first part of a mobile phone that interacts with us. Galaxy S20 FE 5G uses an optical fingerprint sensor instead of the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S20 5G series.

When unlocking, you can double-click to light up the screen, and then perform fingerprint unlocking. The unlocking speed and accuracy are very good.

The 120Hz high refresh rate screen is still very advantageous at present, and it will be very smooth in terms of animation effects and screen sliding. Of course, high brushing will also cause higher power consumption, and we can also choose the standard refresh rate of 60Hz when the battery is low.

By the way, Samsung UI has also made a new system dynamic effect for the high refresh rate, and the look and feel is more smooth.

Wireless shared charging, a must-have function for "walking rivers and lakes". Mobile phones, earphones, and watches can all be charged urgently.

After experiencing Samsung Tablet Tab S7+ not long ago, I was fascinated by Samsung DeX mode. The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G also supports the DeX function. Through wired or wireless, the mobile phone can be transformed into a computer in seconds, and it can be used with the monitor connected to the keyboard and mouse peripherals, a proper productivity tool.

Split-screen is not a new feature, but Samsung’s new UI can memorize the split-screen combination. After saving, you can open the split-screen combination with one click, browse the web, and record information without having to cut back and forth.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G supports IP68 dustproof and waterproof, and is not afraid of wind and rain, providing more comprehensive protection for mobile phones.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is paired with Galaxy Buds Live headset. According to Samsung’s official statement, it can achieve a seamless switching experience. When using a mobile phone to record video, you can also use the headset as a radio microphone. If you choose Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G, Don't forget to pair with a Samsung Galaxy Buds Live headset.

The most touching thing is that Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G not only has a built-in 128G/256G storage space, but also supports a TF card expansion of up to 1TB, which is very valuable in 2020.

In terms of battery, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G uses the same 4500mAh battery as the Galaxy S20+ 5G, and supports up to 25W accelerated charging. It will take some time to fully charge this 4500mAh battery. Also thanks to this large-capacity battery, the 120Hz refresh rate + 5G network power can still meet a day's normal use, and 15W wireless charging makes it more convenient for users to charge it anytime and anywhere.

After actual experience, the overall ease of use of the Samsung One UI system is no different from that of mainstream domestic mobile phone systems, and there is even a very localized function of "red envelope assistant".

Photo effect

Taking photos as Samsung’s housekeeping skill, the three lenses are specifically configured as: ultra-wide-angle lens: 12MP, F2.2 (123˚) wide-angle lens: 12MP, F1.8 (79˚) · telephoto lens: 8MP.

Shoot proofs:

It can be seen from the proofs that Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G inherits Samsung’s usual style of taking pictures, not only retaining the original realism of the scene, but also adding a touch of gorgeous color to the look and feel very comfortable.

In order: original 1X, 10X, 20X, 30X

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G supports up to 30x digital zoom. Although it is also achieved by cropping, the effect is also good, which is at a practical level.

When zoomed in to 20 times, a thumbnail frame will appear in the upper right corner of the viewfinder interface, showing the position of your current viewfinder in the entire frame, avoiding many people's "dizziness" caused by excessive magnification. After adjusting the multiples, multiples such as 1X, 4X, 10X, 20X will also appear in the lower row, which is convenient for users to make quick adjustments.

The 123˚ ultra-wide-angle lens can accommodate a richer scene.

Don’t worry about Samsung’s night view. Turn on the night view mode, and the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G can also be described as “night vision”.

Even if the light is already poor, it can still provide a good looking film.

At the same time, the newly added AI one-key multi-shot, one shot, you can get up to 14 different types of photos and videos (at least 2 videos, up to 10 photos + 4 videos) one-button operation, which is more convenient for users to record Fragments of life.

Although the lens configuration is not as good as the "big brothers", thanks to the optimization of Samsung's ultimate tuning master, the overall three-camera on the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is still at the mid-to-upper level. If there are certain requirements for taking pictures, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is also not Will let you down; of course, the 100 million pixels effect of "Big Brother" is naturally better.

to sum up

The image of the Samsung S series "Android King" has been deeply rooted in everyone's minds, and to a certain extent represents the level of technological development in the new year. The three predecessors of the Samsung Galaxy S20 family, whether it is appearance, hardware, camera, or experience, can all be called Extreme, even radical. Although the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is positioned relatively pragmatically and people-friendly, it can also be seen that Samsung’s “not going to work” has not compromised everywhere because of cost.

As a "condensed version" that integrates user feedback, it has not castrated the high-voicing processor, high screen refresh, and 5G, making the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G more affordable while also worthy of the "Galaxy S" series of signs . When the price of domestic flagships rushed to the 5,000 yuan (USD $714) mark, Samsung still handed over its own answer sheet as a "gatekeeper". In China's flagship mobile phone market, Samsung still has its position.
