Galaxy S20 Plus: 2 months later

by birtanpublished on August 5, 2020

This is the Samsung Galaxy S 20 plus but I've been using it as my main phone for a good amount of time and I'm finally ready to give you my full review now it didn't take me two months for me to determine that this is one excellent smartphone but I like it a lot and it's

Going to be one of the best phones of 2020 no question the first thing I want to talk about is its design it looks like Samsung found some sort of sweet spot here the phones corners aren't as sharp as they are on last year's s10

Plus but they're not as rounded as they are on 2018 s as nine plus they're like right in the middle of that and it makes for a nice comfortable feel in the hand Samsung also addressed the curves of the display I think they heard the

Complaints about accidental input and whatnot and adjusted accordingly it's a move that I know a lot of us wish some other manufacturers would make oh well over these past two months especially with the release of the oneplus 8 pro I

Appreciate this adjustment more and more I love it in addition to that the phone is big it's quite big obviously with plus in the name you'd expect nothing less

Now it's not as wide as the note 10 plus but it is just as thick just as heavy and just as tall as the note 10 plus and it's screen is literally a tenth of an inch shorter diagonally so yeah it is a big phone speaking of the screen this as

Expected is one of the phones best features it's big its bright its crisp it's colorful you know how high-end Samsung displays are they are phenomenal this one especially both on paper and with the eye test the biggest thing to

Note well you know by now it's the 120 Hertz refresh rate this upgrade is probably the first thing I was looking forward to with this phone's release I just love a high refresh rates pair that with a pure quality of a Samsung AMOLED

Panel 240 hertz touch sensitivity and a 905% screen to body ratio you've got yourself the recipe for one of the best displays on a phone that you'll come across it's both a joy to look at and a joy to use I love this display and as

Much as I'd like to be able to push it to the limit with both 120 Hertz and quad HD 1080p isn't bad at all and it looks just fine here haven't had a problem with it at all these past two months and the resolution quickly became

An afterthought and obviously it helps with battery life which I'll get to a little bit late if you want to add some grip and some scratch protection or if you just want to switch up the look of your phone

Check out channel sponsor D brand they've got a ton of different skins with different textures that can help they also help switch up the look of your phone too I especially like this one that shows off what the inside of

The phone looks like link below so it's been quite a long time since I've used the phone with real standout performance issues and the s20 plus hasn't broken that streak performance with this phone has been superb over these past two

Months it's fast its powerful I haven't experienced anything negative worth mentioning when it comes to everyday use games multitasking bouncing in and out of applications scrolling through stuff the phone doesn't even come close to

Breaking a sweat does it get warm while gaming yeah a little bit but nothing to write home about the phone's got the latest and greatest CPU GPU and it's got 12 yes 12 gigs of

Ram is that overkill I guess you could say that but I'd much rather have too much RAM than not have enough RAM plus more RAM helps with a new ability to pin applications to the RAM so that they won't close when they're not in use it's

Good for games that may take a long time to load back up or any application that you use a lot it's pretty useful and I like the implementation of this it's a cool quality-of-life thing in addition to all of that one UI 2 has been really

Good overall it's not been perfect but really good the s20 was launched with 1uy 21 so besides deepening apps to ram feature google duo integration in the dialer a pro mode for video capture finally Bixby Homes rebranding to

Samsung daily there is a small handful of other minor refinements it's great to see how far Samsung's skin has come over the years when UI is loaded some would say to a fault which is fair to say but either way I'm cool with it

One thing I'm not so cool with though is having to guess when it comes to software updates for example I got the may security patch towards the beginning of May and I got the April patch at the very end of April

Samsung doesn't have the best track record when it comes to stuff like this but it hasn't been a total deal-breaker for me at least now I quickly wanted to go over this in display a fingerprint scanner from what I've heard and seen

There are a good amount of users out there who basically say that this scanner is slow and doesn't work half the time I've had a different experience because for me the scanner has been just fine it's not perfectly accurate and I

Still do prefer the older rear mounted scanners but I haven't necessarily had a huge problem with its performance and I've gotten used to it over this time maybe I've got some weird thumbs or something I don't

Know but it's been okay same goes for a face unlock getting to the cameras I gotta say these upgrades while not huge ones have proven to be very good everyday shots come out clean crisp

Bright and colorful with good dynamic range low-light performance is good overall very solid stuff for sure and I'm sure you're all aware of all the different camera modes there are now I may not give the cameras the first place

Metal but once again they're up there in the top two top three and you can still kind of make out the same signification of some of these shots but you really can't go wrong over all the cameras here are great now I know there were some

Battery concerns with a display being this large with that high refresh rate but honestly and battery life has been just fine in fact it's been pretty darn good over the time that I've been using this phone I haven't had to worry about

Drainage or anything like that I get around 6 to 7 hours of screen on time it's a good strong battery and I don't get paranoid about having to plug it in now when fully maxing things out like brightness using Bluetooth GPS 5g all

That good stuff well we're looking at a pretty good snack to the battery performance but again it's nothing really worth worrying about using the phone like that I could still pull in about five hours or so of screen on time

Ok so as much as I've enjoyed using this phone its price tag is such a tough pill to swallow $1,200 is yeah that's a heavy one it makes it kind of hard to recommend especially since one Plus recently brought the heat with their 8

Pro which by the way is very comparable to the s 20 plus and it starts at a full three hundred dollars less now if you know Samsung flagship trends you know that this phone will come down in price pretty much without fail it's just a

Matter of time for when it actually will in fact I'm sure it already has in some places online which also means these smaller as twenty should also be on your radar if you're interested in this series of phones just a little food for

Thought the S 20 plus has been one of my favorite phones that I've used so far this year the design the screen the power and performance the speakers that cameras and everything else while not perfect come together to make a

Winner in my book all in all I think it's currently and will be moving forward one of the best phones that you can buy and I do recommend it but I also recommend getting it when it's not 1,200 bucks

Anyway what do you guys think of the s20 plus two months later let's talk about it in the comments down below if you enjoyed the video feel free to leave it a like and subscribe to the channel if you're new I will talk to you
