If you prioritize camera quality, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has a slight advantage over the Google Pixel 6, especially for video. However, for daily photos, the Pixel 6 offers comparable quality and includes features like RAW output. The Galaxy S20 FE has a higher screen refresh rate, which can provide smoother scrolling and better gaming experiences, but the Pixel 6's screen is still quite good and offers a variable refresh rate to optimize battery life. Speaking of battery, the Pixel 6 has slightly lower battery life than the S20 FE. The S20 FE also boasts wireless DeX for desktop-like experience, which the Pixel 6 lacks. If these features are less important to you and you are looking to save money, the Pixel 6 would be the more budget-friendly option. Both phones run on Android, have OLED displays, and similar size and weight, so your preference may lean towards other factors like brand loyalty or user interface. Give Feedback

Android Police

Taylor Kerns | April 2022
"It punches above its weight in nearly every way: performance is great, build quality is very good, and the cameras positively rip. this is a big phone, which is a bit of a shock after the compact Pixel 4 and Pixel 5. But it’s a very good big phone at a very good price."

Android Authority

Eric Zeman | March 2023
"The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is a fine phone. The flat display glass may turn off some, but the 120Hz refresh rate turned me on. I really liked the overall size and usability of the phone, and the six different colors mean you’ll likely find a version to suit your personal style. Other pros include solid performance, excellent battery life, and straightforward software."

About Google

Google can be considered a relatively new player in the smartphone industry, joining as late as 2016 with their phone, the Google Pixel. Since then, the Pixel lineup has undergone many changes, but it has always been characterized by a focus on photography and clean software, by providing a pure Android experience. By virtue of Google being the creator of the Android operating system, Pixels are known for receiving timely software updates and for being supported with updates for a long time. Additionally, over the past few generations of devices, Google started designing their own processors. This allowed for the implementation of unique software features that are not present in any other phone, such as automatic call screening and unique voice transcribing capabilities.

About Samsung

Samsung is one of the most recognizable names in the smartphone industry, standing as the undisputed best-selling brand of Android smartphones in the United States for many years now. Samsung is known for offering a variety of smartphones in all available price points, as well as for implementing cutting-edge technology and innovative features in their flagship devices, ones that often shape the market going forward. The company offers its own unique spin on Android, called One UI, which focuses on offering a multitude of features and is heavily customizable, according to user preference.
