Samsung Galaxy S20+
The Galaxy S20+ might not have as advanced a camera system as the S20 Ultra, but it has pretty much everything else. Plus, it’s smaller and lighter, making it easier to use with one hand and for prolonged periods of time. With a long-lasting battery, super smooth display and a premium build, the S20+ is one of the best Android phones around. Just wait till Samsung releases its software update to fix a camera autofocus issue before you go out and buy it.

- 90AVERAGE CRITIC SCORE10 ReviewsZDNet90The S20 that business users needThe Galaxy S20 Plus is the best Android phone I've used over the last year. It offers the complete package. A robust camera setup, an impressive screen, and it has the performance to match. The addition of 5G connectivity is something that some -- maybe most? -- of us won't be able to take full advantage of quite yet, but with a phone that costs $1,200, odds are you're not planning on upgrading anytime soon.CNET90The best of both worldsI'm more on the fence when it comes to the S20 versus the Plus. If you don't mind a smaller phone and don't care about 5G, the standard S20 is the one for you. Most people will get what they need to from the standard S20, for $200 less than what you pay for the Plus. But of the two phones, the Plus is more convenient when you want a larger viewing screen, and the keyboard won't feel as tight as the S20's if you have larger hands.PC Mag90Samsung Galaxy S20+ ReviewThere will be more phones this year that will support the full range of 5G technologies. I have high hopes for the OnePlus 8, the upcoming Motorola flagship, and of course the iPhone 12. At the moment, though, the Galaxy S20+ is your best two-to-three-year investment in a phone. That's important: We shouldn't just be thinking of the networks we have right now, but what the situation will be 18 months from now.Android Authority90Buy this oneIf you’re spending this kind of money, you’d better expect one hell of a smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is one hell of a smartphone. It’s probably the only Android phone I’d say is worth this kind of money. I can’t say the Galaxy S20 Plus is the best in every category, but it’s very close in many of those categories.TechRadar90The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is just rightThe Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is a nearly-perfect smartphone that connects to more 5G networks and has better cameras than ever, though you’ll be paying for the privilege, as this is the priciest Plus smartphone yet. If you don’t mind ho-hum design, the phone handles anything you throw at it, and should last you years -- especially assuming 5G networks stay compatible with the S20 Plus as they build out.The Verge90By doing less than the S20 Ultra, Samsung achieves moreOne thing to be aware of is that only the larger Galaxy S20 Plus and Ultra support the mmWave version of 5G. That’s the kind that only works if you are within a stone’s throw of and have line of sight to a cell tower. It’s much faster, but I still think of it as a street corner tech demo, not a real consumer technology. One reason you should consider the S20 Plus -- beyond the larger screen -- is the larger battery.CNN90The Galaxy S20 and S20+ succeed as the best option for the massesWe found that the S20+ did a slightly better job than the S20 with these photos as it has an additional sensor. That sensor can help calculate distances between what's in focus and the background behind it.Android Central90The best phone for most peopleThe successor to last year's top-of-the-line phone is the middle child this time around, but loses none of its appeal. In fact, with a more manageable size and weight, plus a superb primary camera that's sure to improve with updates, the Galaxy S20+ could be the best phone of 2020.Mobile Syrup90The phone to beatSamsung's Galaxy S20+ is the gold standard for phones in 2020. It features a great design, an excellent display, a powerful processor, a reliable battery, and solid camera performance. It's hard not to recommend the handset. For the rest of the year, I'll be comparing other premium phones to this device and see how they stack up.NDTV Gadgets90Are 'Space Zoom' and 8K recording enough to justify an incredibly high price?Some of its stand-out features include the new zoom system for the rear cameras, the excellent display, solid battery life, and a sleeker design. Other things such as reverse wireless charging, the stereo speakers, and the lean software make this a very good package to consider. However this phone does have its share of weakness, such as the fact that it gets quite warm when playing heavy games for extended periods of time, and face recognition doesn't work very well in low light.
- 81AVERAGE USER SCORE7 ReviewsRyan80July 19, 2020Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I upgraded to the S20+ from an S7. For the first couple of weeks, I had a hard time adjusting to the size of the S20+. I was used to comfortably holding and navigating the smaller S7 in one hand, and one-handed use of the S20+ seemed impossible. I've adjusted to the size of the S20+ to the point where its no longer an issue, but be aware that this is a tall and wide phone that will often require two-handed use. The S20+ screen, of course, is beautiful, and I use the 120 refresh rate with no noticeable difference in resolution. I have noticed, however, that the screen glass is easily susceptible to scratching. After a month of careful use, there are three or four small scratches noticeable when the screen is off. The notion that Gorilla Glass is somehow impervious to scratching is clearly a myth. The battery life is considerably longer than my S7, and I can use the phone all day without worrying about recharging. So far I'm happy with the device. If you prefer one-handed use, I would go with the regular S20.Brianna100July 17, 2020Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Love the buttery smooth refresh rate! Never knew I needed 120ghz in my life until I saw it in person! Never going back! Beautiful display and 12gb of ram offers impeccable performance. Love this phone!Barry30July 16, 2020Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A poor product that's more likely to be frustrating than useful. - Engadgetsazi25ster90July 16, 2020Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetNick80July 16, 2020Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!(Exynos 990 version) Great Phone with an excelent screen and software but the battery life isnt that great. Also there isnt a real telephoto camera, it Just crops a 64mp frame. Bad thing also is it is so similar to all other A-series Samsungs that you cannot easily tell the difference. Not a very shiny flagship as previous models. I was twice as excited when I bought my s7 edge that it replaced.Ronald90July 16, 2020Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.
