This is how the price table works

Why necessarily buy the latest fashionable smartphone while the Galaxy S20 FE is still on sale? Released in late 2020, Samsung’s phone remains, even today, unsurpassed in its price range. More than 24 months later there is still no better value around € 400.

Imagined as a more pragmatic (and cheaper) Galaxy S20 than the rest of the range, we are forced to admit today that Samsung’s mobile has hit the spot. No manufacturer has managed to do better at the moment in this price segment. It must be said that at this price, the Samsung mobile offers a more than correct technical sheet.

Its perfectly calibrated Amoled screen responds to the finger and eye with a tactile delay of less than 100 ms, and its Snapdragon 865 chip provides the generous power that makes the phone never smoke when faced with a host of applications. parallel or greedy. 3D games.

Still relevant, even two years later

Admittedly, as is often the case when it comes to saving money, the photo component, which is slightly below the rest of the range, but even on that, Samsung’s phone does quite well and offers a good level of detail in normal. low brightness! And honestly, no mobile in this price range gets the maximum score in our comparison. Only devices like the Xiaomi Mi 10T or Huawei P40 also get 4 stars on photos, but these two mobiles are more expensive and less balanced on the rest of the features. In order not to ruin anything, the S20 FE also offers impeccable autonomy given its technical data sheet and its performance. No worries, because even with two years in the legs, the phone continues to offer more than enough power for current use.

So why exactly is the S20 FE still a benchmark today? For strategic issues first. After Huawei has become almost non-existent in the European market, Samsung has free rein to rule in this price segment. There is still Xiaomi that could come and shake the Korean manufacturer, but the Chinese company has instead made a specialty of € 200 smartphones, a sector where it has become dominant today. Even at Apple, the iPhone SE 2022 does not measure up, whether it is on the front of the image, the screen or the autonomy.

This is how the price table works

There are certainly other very good quality / price ratios that get the maximum score in our comparison, but most of these devices are significantly more expensive. Google’s Pixel 6, for example, offers impeccable image performance and a balanced experience, but it’s selling for over $ 600. That said, the S20 FE and Pixel 6 do not box in the same category: if the second imposes itself as an advanced reference, the first represents an excellent reference for less than € 500. While paying for the luxury of not aging in a market that still goes at 200 per hour.
