Nikojas, 16 Sep 2021This 20FE in 4g exynos model is now same price as A52s 5g.... Which is better bet for me? I think the Galaxy A52s 5G is better choice only if it is the s 5G model. If not, the S10 FE with exynos is a better choice on my opinion.

In general it's not a great phone:
1-Taking photos with a flash is totally crap.
2-fingerprint is totally useless and makes you pissed off so that you'll turn it off.
3-don't but the superfast charger because while charging the touches on the screen don't work correctly.
4-GPS freaks out many times while using Google maps
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2021Which one is nice s20 fe 5g or asus zenfone 8?I would choose s20 Fe for its better battery results in comparison to asus zenfone 8.
lotus, 03 Aug 2021I was wondering if someone could help me make the right choice, Samsung s20 Fe or Asus rog5??
... moreRog 5 should be your choice only if you are looking for a phone for gaming where extra shoulder button will help you improve gaming also. It has good design, body, battery but at the expense of being one of the heaviest phone of 2021.
And s20 Fe is like jack of all trades and master of none. It will give you good processor, camera, ip68 rating, good 120hz display, good backup but nothing best.

Hi guys... someone know how to active the alarm when the phone shutdown ?
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2021My S20fe is the worst piece of crap I have ever owned. 5g is a joke. Writing a letter is easie... moreYou can change the button options in settings. And power off the phone is quiet easy, just scroll from top and u see it on top right corner.
Your keyboard setting has auto correct turned on. You can just disable it in settings too. May be U need to explore the phone first
My s20 fe front camera is a joke, all photos I get that stupid wax skin effect, and yes, I'm 100% sure the effect is disabled or dialed all way down. Unfortunately, the front camera quality ruins the phone. Why Samsung insists in this terrible filter and won't give us an option to disabled it for real? This is insulting.
My S20fe is the worst piece of crap I have ever owned. 5g is a joke. Writing a letter is easier than texting. It keeps changing the spelling of whatever words it wants. If I could go back to my old phone (we don't support that phone anymore, you have to have a new one), there was NOTHING WRONG with the old one. Turning this phone off is near impossible, Bixby (that I DON'T WANT) keeps coming up. No other electronic device has the buttons in these positions. I think this my LAST samsung phone...
I've had the Exynos 4g variant of the s20FE for less than a month as my daily driver. All was well to begin with, ok screen resolution (not the best, lower resolution than s20, s21 and even previous flagships). Performance pretty good. Not the fastest but far from sluggish. Cameras seem to be good, not excellent, good. Mind you I'm not a camera guru so I'm not an expert. Design quality, mediocre. Not really a fan of the plastic back plate but aluminum frame is nice I guess. A bit disappointing to have only gorilla glass 3 when newer and even previous flagships have had gorilla glass 6 and victus. Battery life is good. I can usually go a full day and still have at least 30% left in battery life. Overall the biggest disappointment for me has been the Exynos chipset. It's inferior, causes the phone to overheat and slows down performance. But because I'm in New Zealand I am stuck with Exynos. Would much rather prefer Snapdragon.
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2021Isn't it a concern that the S20 FE does not have Gorilla Glass? What kind of glass does i... moreIt does, gorilla glass 3.its not bad at all. It's harder than some of the newer variants meaning it's more scratch resistant, but at a coat of being less shatter proof in the event of a serious fall.
That's basically the trade off, scratch resistance or playability in the event of a fall.
Even then, the difference between them all is not massive. They simply have to release a new versionevery so often to stay relevant.
Commenting with my experience which has been great since the April patch.
Got the S20 FE in January and after a month had unresponsive screen issues that would only resolve with a reboot.
A number of calls to Sammy support following the usual, restart, factory reset etc steps didn't resolve the issue.
I was preparing to send it in but that day two things happened
1. The April patch was released.
2. The sd card, which hadn't been formatted since it's days in my S7 got wiped.
Unsure if the issue was the sd card with old versions of configs or something, or the update but it's been too notch since then and I'm glad I held onto it.
I wish Samsung wouldnt wait for users to uncover these issues but from experience, no other brand are any better (similar experience iPhone, HTC, Huawei), and Samsung hardware and launcher, in my experience is a step above anything else.
I still wish it had a notification LED,a physical proximity sensor and the selfie cam had more than a fixed focus, but those are minor gripes.
Excellent phone, imo better than the S21 due to expandable storage , larger battery and non sd888 chip which seems to run very hot.
Hopefully Samsung stick with the polycarbonate back too, it's a 100% improvement, being lighter, stronger, more durable, doesn't attract fingerprints and feels solid. If they do, I'll be back for an s22FE but see no need to upgrade this year.
Some parts of this review are false and misleading, I have reviewed the phone myself and have had no problems that were mentioned in the review. Please update your facts!
You must be one of those Samsung hardon supporter genius with an empty stomach.
There is nothing wrong this review. BTW he is honest and always reviews according to the truth.
Samsung had been releasing bunch of confusing array of mobile hardwares, with some good features and bad. And with some confusing names. ie S20 S20+ S20ULTRA and S20 FE. Now some are even adding with "s" on an old lineup calling it new when the hardware are same. To note they even released same S20 FE as 4g and 5g variants when both uses same Snapdragon 5G chip. Some are frustrated why 5G is released only one country and not globally.
Dont blame the reviewers because they are voices of the end users as well. And as most of end users are frustrated with Samsung line up. One being lack of reply from Customer Care when there are complaints made about "falling Buds" and lack of free accessories that comes with premier phones like S21 and Tab S7.
OTHER FAILURES to note. Most of recent Note 20 are also showing display failure after sometime uses. And some other phone models are showing overheating on their battery packs. If Samsung refuses to listen, then they are doom to fail with their line up of bad designs and lack of care.
GSMarena keep up the good work.
