Samar, 16 Oct 2020The IP68 waterproof rating (in these times of frequent sanitising), wireless charging, Samsung... moreThat's a very rosy picture for Samsung you're printing. The Exynos is not 5% slower than the Snapdragon, it's closer to 20% for multicore CPU and it's just half as fast in sustained GPU loads than the Snapdragon. Not to mention the huge efficiency gap. There are multiple battery life comparisons on Youtube, and the Exynos version does around 15% worse than the Snapdragon in battery life.
AndroidPolice recommended S20 FE over OP 8T because the 8T is $150 more expensive in US compared to the Snapdragon version of the FE(on sale). In India however, the 8T is much cheaper than even the 4G Exynos (read as garbage) S20 FE.
Regarding discounts, even OnePlus is offering ₹4300 discount on AmEx cards on OnePlus 8T on their own site. The 8T is much cheaper than the FE, whether you take discounted prices or not.
Even if you love Exynos, why get the S20 FE when S20+ is available for ₹50k. That makes no sense.
The IP68 waterproof rating (in these times of frequent sanitising), wireless charging, Samsung's beautiful sAMOLEDs with 120Hz, a proper main camera of 12MP with Dual-Pixel tech and the massive no. of Samsung service centres compared to 1+ in India , is pushing me towards S20 FE. Android Police is also recommending S20 FE over 8T https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/10/14/oneplus-8t-review/
The real world difference between SD & Exynos, doing daily tasks would be hardly 5% & the bitter truth is 5G will take atleast 4-5 years for it to be implemented & reasonably priced data plans to be accessible in India. Plus Samsung is giving 4000 discount on HDFC cards & 2000-4000 on exchange, so almost same price as 8T..
MrDang, 16 Oct 2020S20+ is Exynos. I don't want an Exynos phone. My S20 FE is the 5G model with the SD chip... moreAlso S20+ is still selling 10-15% more than S20 FE 5G. Shouldn't have traded in my old phone which was priced low.
the tech nerd, 16 Oct 2020Buy s20 plus if you get the value or credit instead of getting replacement phoneS20+ is Exynos. I don't want an Exynos phone.
My S20 FE is the 5G model with the SD chipset.
The loudspeaker is also a bit strange. In games, even with Dolby Atmos enabled via the game tools, the sound is inbalanced.
If things do not pan out then I might force a full refund. My money will go into buying a iPhone 12 Pro.
My S20 FE is a preorder model so maybe I'm expecting issues.

s20 FE would have been a good pick if s20 plus also was not selling for the same price itself
Hey guys! I'm thinking about getting S20 FE, but in my region there are only 4G version with Exynos... Is it worth getting? I heard that even picture quality differs on these? Have anyone seen S20 FE 4G vs 5G comparison?
Why haven't you guys reviewed the Galaxy S20 4G? There's a huge performance difference between the exynos 990 and the SD 865 so there should be two separate reviews. The 4G and 5G variants are two different phones!
