Ratings by Category

Battery Life:
4.3
The Battery Life rating is based on overall actual measured battery life during typical usage.
Performance:
4.1
The Performance rating is based on GeekBench performance benchmark scores, combined with PerfectRec’s assessment of real-life typical use cases.
Photos:
3.4
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE takes fair photos primarily because its selfie quality is assessed as fair, and other factors like the photo software experience and dynamic range are rated poorly, indicating limitations in how the phone processes and captures a wide range of light and color intensities during photography.
Overall Camera:
3.3
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE delivers a good software experience for photography but has limitations, as it produces images with poor dynamic range and fair performance in low light conditions. The selfie camera has just a fair score, affecting its overall performance for front-facing photos.

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."
