Samsung Galaxy S20 FE vs iPhone 12 – Who Will Win?

by birtanpublished on March 27, 2021

In this video we're going to be comparing the samsung galaxy s20 fe versus the apple iphone 12. so let's get started now both of these devices are offered factory unlocked and will work with any carrier in the us with the galaxy s20 fe we're getting a 6.5 inch display compared to a 6.1 inch display with the iphone 12. now you can see when holding these two phones up next to each other the fe is definitely the larger phone of the two not only is the display bigger but the phone's overall body is bigger as well

There's also quite a few differences when it comes to the displays now with the galaxy s20 fe we're getting a super amoled display which has the ability to perform at 120 hertz whereas with the iphone 12 we're getting an oled display which does look nice but it is limited at 60 hertz now with the s20 fe we're getting a 1080p display compared to the iphone 12 display which is 1170 by 2532 so pretty much 1080p

As well now with the s20 fe we're getting a ppi of 407 compared to a ppi of 460 with the iphone with the fe we're getting a 20 by nine aspect ratio compared to a 19 and a half by nine aspect ratio with the iphone 12 and then finally with the galaxy s20 fe we're getting an 84.8 percent screen to body ratio compared to an 86 screen to body ratio with the iphone 12. now one major difference between these two devices is that with the s20 fe

We are getting a hole punch for the front-facing camera compared to a very large notch for the iphone 12. now with the s20 fe we're getting a 32 megapixel front facing camera compared to a 12 megapixel front-facing camera with the iphone 12. now with both of these phones we do have the base configurations and for the base model s20 fe we're getting 128 gigabytes of internal storage with microsd card expansion whereas with the iphone the base model comes with 64 gigabytes

Of internal storage so half the amount and there's no micro sd card expansion now with both devices we do get wireless charging which is definitely appreciated and with the s20 fe we have a fingerprint sensor built into the display which does work very well and we also have face unlock and with the iphone 12 there is no fingerprint sensor and we do have face unlock and it's known as face id

Now i will give apple some credit face id is more secure compared to the face unlock technology that comes with the s20 fe but i do appreciate with the fe that we do get multiple options now taking a look at the camera modules on both phones with the s20 fe we have a triple camera setup so there's a 12 megapixel main camera a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle camera and an 8 megapixel 3x optical zoom telephoto camera

Whereas with the iphone 12 we have a dual camera setup with a 12 megapixel main camera and a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle camera so there is no telephoto camera here with the iphone 12 and if you do want to get that feature then you are gonna have to get the iphone 12 pro now as far as the ram and processors go with the fe we're getting six gigabytes of ram whereas with the iphone 12 we're getting four gigabytes of ram and with the fe we're getting the qualcomm

Snapdragon 865 processor whereas with the iphone 12 we're getting the apple a14 bionic processor now since these devices do run different operating systems the level of optimization is definitely different and i will give apple credit that ios does not require as high of amount of ram and as powerful of a processor in order for the operating system to run really well so when it comes to the ram and processors in these two devices i'll give it a tie

Now with both phones we have 4k video recording that does max out at 60fps for both the rear and front cameras which is awesome now with the galaxy s 20 fe we're getting a very beefy 4 500 million power internal battery whereas with the iphone 12 we are getting a very small battery at 2 815 milliamp hours now the effie's battery supports 25 watt fast charging whereas with the iphone 12 we're getting 20 watt fast charging supported now both devices do have nfc in the

Situation for the s20 fe we do have samsung pay on here whereas with the iphone 12 we do have apple pay and both of these devices are water and dust resistant but now that we've gone over the main specifications of these two phones let's take a closer look at the hardware to see the similarities and differences it's already talked quite a bit about the front panel here on both phones they both do have flat displays which i certainly do like quite a bit but there's definitely no

Getting past how much of a difference there is between that tiny hole punch for the front-facing camera and this really giant outdated looking notch with the iphone 12. now taking a look at the left side of both devices with the s20 fe we have nothing whereas with the iphone 12 we have the mute switch and then we also have the volume up and volume down buttons another interesting thing too is that the side rails on both of these phones

Are made out of metal then on the right side of both phones on the fe we have the volume up and volume down and then we also have the power button and then on the right side of the iphone 12 we just have the power button then taking a look at the top of both phones with the s20 fe with the slot for the micro sd card in sim card and also the noise cancelling microphone whereas with the iphone 12 we have nothing and then taking a look at the bottom of both devices with both phones

We have the microphone and speaker and then with the fe we have a usbc port for charging and data transfer and then with the iphone 12 we have the lightning port for charging and data transfer and then taking a look at the back side of both phones there are certainly quite a few differences so with the galaxy s20 fe we do have plastic on the back but overall i do like this finish and i do also like that it doesn't pick up too many fingerprints and then with the iphone 12 we do have glass on the back

We have the apple logo right here and the back of the phone definitely picks up a lot of fingerprints that's very obvious here so in conclusion which of these devices is the better phone of the two now if you're really into android or if you're really into ios then it's going to be very easy for you to pick which route to go if you're already very invested in apple's ecosystem whether it's using facetime imessage airdrop and you likely also have a bunch of apps

That you've purchased over the years in the app store then it's definitely going to be difficult to not get another iphone and instead switch over to android whereas if you currently have an android phone then moving on to the s20 fe is going to be a very easy transition one thing for sure though that i think everybody can agree on is that this comparison definitely shows you how many extra features and better specifications you are getting with the s20 fe

Compared to the iphone 12. i know that for me personally i enjoy using my devices for content consumption whether that's watching video content browsing the web or going on social media and having this really massive display like you get with the s20 fe really does make a big difference of course the display itself is bigger but in addition to that you don't have this massive notch taking up so much space and then another very clear benefit here with the s20 fe is that we're getting double the amount

Of internal storage it really would have been nice with the iphone 12 if they could have at least given us 128 gigabytes for the base model option because i don't know if you've noticed lately but it seems like apps are getting bigger and bigger and bigger so as apps get bigger these companies need to respond by giving the user more and more storage now i'll give samsung credit they've done that here with the s20 fe giving us 128 gigabytes for the base model option is definitely they're generous and then

Of course we do also have micro sd card expansion but for the iphone 12 if you do buy the 64 gigabyte variant then in a few years from now you might not be able to fit all your apps onto the phone so definitely something there to consider but this is the samsung galaxy s20 fe versus the apple iphone 12. i hope this video is helpful
