While it lacks the crazy 108-megapixel camera of Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra, the S20+ has the other main features and is lighter and less expensive to boot. Key features include a smooth 120Hz display, a triple-camera setup with a 64-megapixel main shooter and Snapdragon 865 processor with no less than 12GB of RAM. You can even shoot video at up to 8K resolution.
In addition, the Galaxy S20+ has 5G support, unlike rival iPhones, though it doesn’t support mmWave like the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Still, 5G compatibility ensures a relatively future-proof investment — which is important, given the price.
In fact, the regular $1,200 price is one of the main negatives of the Galaxy S20+. That’s why Amazon’s $250 discount is notable, as the S20+ is rarely discounted below $1,000. If you’ve been thinking of buying, however, you’ll need to act soon as the sale is on for today only.
