Samsung Galaxy S20 FE deals: how does it differ from the S20?
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was 2020’s answer to the flagship at the time. Earning its model name for being a cheaper iteration of its full-fat counterpart, the Samsung Galaxy S20, it’s fair to assume that while the differences between the S20 FE and S20 don’t go much further than skin deep, when we compare it to the newest Samsung flagship, the specs may seem vastly different.
However, with the Samsung Galaxy S21 considerably cheaper than its predecessor at launch with modifications to bring it in line with this more affordable price point, buying the S20 FE over the S21 still manages to get you a handset that hosts some flashy flagship features, albeit in a cheaper, plastic shell.

So what are those aforementioned features? Well, the S20 FE boasts that super-smooth, 120Hz refresh rate with Full HD+ resolution. In terms of display, this doesn’t actually differ too much from Samsung’s latest flagship. The S21 – which is fractionally smaller at 6.2-inches rather than the S20 FE’s 6.5 – has a maximum resolution of Full HD+ rather than the S20’s WQHD+ offering.
Under the hood of the S20 FE you’ll find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, which offers a seriously impressive, snappy performance. Where the camera is concerned, the S20 FE has a triple camera lens set-up with excellent features like the S20’s Night Mode, as well as Single Take utilising all three lenses to capture the very best snap. The upgrade between this and the S21 is minimal, hosting much the same hardware with a few tweaks in terms of its software.
Of course, as a more affordable variation of its older sibling, there are obviously drawbacks to the budget-friendly edition. When we gave it a whirl, we found the battery life didn’t keep up with moderate to heavy usage, with juice draining tasks like gaming and taking photos using up a lot of power. As previously mentioned, its shell also leaves something left to be desired, with a lack of curves and a plastic back.
Still, we think those flagship features, including 5G, more than make up for the slight inconvenience of having to put the handset on charge every night. Plus, right now it’s the only budget friendly model available that adopts flagship features, with Samsung yet to launch a S21 FE to join the rankings of its current flagship family.
