aVider, 27 Mar 2020Since you have tried it, would you mind sharing your thoughts? The S20+ is in my opinion the b... moreI will try. Please keep in mind that the version I had was the Exynos version since I'm from Denmark. Also apologies for my broken english.
The screen is amazing, best on the market. Noone can top Samsung displays and probably never will.
The stereo speakers were amazing too. In short everything was amazing on the S20+, except the cameras (especially the full 64MP lense and the ultrawide lense) and the mid-range exynos-chip.
The ultra wide lens has been reduced from 16MP on S10-series to 12MP on the S20 series and that is clearly visible in image quality. They don't look sharp and especially the edges are very blurry. Take a look at 11 Pro Max's 12 MP ultra wide shots and you will get an idea about it.
The 64MP telelens can also be used to take a full 64MP photo but the image quality even in very bright light was not good. I still think the Note 10+ (I had it last year) is better in terms of image quality.
The normal 12MP lens was okay but there's absolutely no visible difference in image quality compared to the S10-series.
This chip is a very bad one. It performs like a mid-range chip. Please go see Mrwhostheboss' Youtube video on S20 ultra where he compares S20 ultra SD865 vs. S20 Ultra exynos version and you will clearly see the problem. For me the S20+ exynos phone lagged when moving files on SD cart and also in gaming it caused massive overheating problems in the game Arena of Valor making the game unplayable in periods of my time with the phone.
So my conclusion (and my own opinion) is that it's not worth paying so much money for the s20-series with the exynos chip. You get a highly inferior phone and performance with the exynos. It's a mid-range chip and it performs like one. They should lower the price by 200 dollars for the exynos versions of the S20 series because this chip is not a flagship chip - it belongs to mid-range phones like their A-series.
I'm done with Samsung until they stop scamming European customers and giving us a midrange chip but still charge us til same amount of money as the SD versions. Luckely more and more people are awakening to this problem now after youtubers have illuminated the problem.
Emeline Shaw, 27 Mar 2020Just try the Note 10+ and you will see its the best Samsung phone.Since you have tried it, would you mind sharing your thoughts? The S20+ is in my opinion the best Samsung handheld right now. Top screen, performance, camera and design.
aVider, 27 Mar 2020How so? How do you back this statement up?Just try the Note 10+ and you will see its the best Samsung phone.

Qualcomm is still struggling to put a flagship SoC and 5G modem together, and unlikely to achieve that even in 2021.
Kirin990 is also the first flagship SoC that supports WiFi 6. Kirin990 is also the only SoC that supports WiFi 6 Plus, an enhanced version of WiFi 6, with up to 50% enhancement in bandwidth.
WiFi 6 is essentially a Huawei standard, since Huawei holds the largest critical patents of WiFi 6, and Huawei has chaired the committee where WiFi 6 standard is decided.

Can you even pinpoint difference between k980 and k990 performance? Does 1fps fluctuations in game makes you miss that hit?
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2020Nobody buying a 2020 flagship with last year's chipset. The Benchmark scores speak for themselves. 990 is an late last year chipset, just like the Snapdragon 🤣 all next years processors coming towards the end of the year!
KebabSLO, 26 Mar 2020Seems like a good deal. Way better then s20 Ultra. I think pretty much every other flagship is better than the sh*tty, overpriced S20 Ultra. That device is probably the worst Samsung has ever made. The Note 10+ is better.
Emeline Shaw, 26 Mar 2020Aren't those performance numbers very low? Seems like they put a mid-range chip in their fl... morenumbers are same as every year, for AnTuTu scores you need sh*tty Snapdragon, for dxomark sh*tty Kirin ....
They make us fool once again through fake render. This device has an ugly uneven top & bottom bezel. The chin is almost double than what we saw on the render. And there is no curve in top & bottom portion.

Aren't those performance numbers very low?
Seems like they put a mid-range chip in their flagship phone exactly like Samsung did with their sh*tty exynos-chip.
Dated cpu without WiFi 6 support and of course no Google services. This is not a phone but a smart digital camera
