Samsung has just launched a new phone that is shocking Samsung fans and Android smartphone users.
The latest version, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, is eerily similar to the previously introduced Samsung Galaxy S20. What begs the question, what on earth pinning ‘FE’ to the S20 smartphone means for consumers?
First of all, “FE” stands for “Fan Edition”, which means that this phone will “make Samsung fans happy”. Why? According to Samsung, the phone includes the users’ preferred features found in the Samsung Galaxy S devices, but cheaper than its flagship Samsung Galaxy S20 with a bonus of around $ 350.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has a number of color options: red, white, navy, lavender, mint and orange. The back of the phone is made of polycarbonate (plastic) and the front has a flat screen made of gorilla glass.
These two features are often viewed as calling cards to “cheaper” phones, yet they are features that I absolutely love because they add durability to the phone. If a phone has a polycarbonate back, it won’t crash if you drop them like glass premium smartphones.
While the comparable Samsung Galaxy S20 is only available in gray, blue and pink and is of higher quality, it has a Gorilla glass bottom and even a display with curved edges. While curved displays look chic and are often found on more expensive phones, these curved edges are sometimes easier to break.

The S20 and S20 FE have very similar cameras. There are three cameras on the back of the FE, a 12-megapixel wide-angle, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. There is a 32-megapixel selfie camera on the front.
Compared to the S20, you get exactly the same, except for a surprisingly much worse 10-megapixel selfie camera, and conversely, a better telephoto lens with a full 64-megapixel. The main difference is that you can only record 4K footage on the FE and the regular S20 can record 8K video.
The FE has stereo speakers, can quickly charge 25 watts (note that it only comes with a slower 15 watt charger), can be wirelessly charged, and performs wireless reversing, which involves using other wireless devices through your phone can charge.
The device has an in-screen fingerprint scanner and is waterproof and dustproof (IP68). These are all functions that the more expensive Samsung Galaxy S20 also offers.
Believe it or not, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE even has a larger battery – 4500 mAh versus 4000 mAh, which allows you to work for a full day.
The real kicker everyone yearns for is the phone with the powerful Qualcomm 865 processor chip that the other S20 devices have. I’m sorry, how and why is this phone being sold cheaper again?

In my opinion, the main features that you are missing out on the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE are the fact that this device has half the RAM of the flagship S20 and only a Full HD + screen (the screen quality of the S20 is slightly better).
Ram will keep your devices snappy and fluid, but with the newer processor in the FE too, you won’t even notice the difference.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is Samsung’s attempt to bring a high-quality, mid-range phone to the market. Prices start at $ 999 compared to the Samsung Galaxy S20 from $ 1349. While I personally think that $ 999 is by no means a “budget smartphone” for its price, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is incredible value for money and a win for consumers.
