When it comes to the quality of the product, after-sales service and most important, trust in the brand—Samsung ticks all the boxes right; the South Korean consumer electronics major stands tall over others in the mobile phone market, across segments. The company has a razor-sharp focus on what the consumer wants—continuously listening to evolving consumer preferences, usage and habits and aspirations—and that’s what gives it an edge. The ethos is to make every new product relevant for the consumer.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) is an outcome of that. “Galaxy S20 FE is the flagship smartphone that is designed by the fans, for the fans,” says Aditya Babbar, director, Mobile Business, Samsung India. “It includes all the innovations our consumers love the most.” Basically, the company has picked select features of the Galaxy S20 series, such as the super-smooth scrolling display, an AI-powered camera, advanced chipset, hyper-fast connectivity, all-day battery and more, in order to create the all-new Galaxy S20 FE. The result is a surprisingly good smartphone. Let us dig deeper to find out more.

It is available in five bold colours—Cloud Red, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint (our trial unit), Cloud Navy and Cloud White. We have been using the device for some time now and frankly we were quite impressed with its design and build quality. It is an attractive looking device that is sturdy and features an interesting texture haze effect that minimises fingerprints and smudges.
The bezel-less design of the Galaxy S20 FE’s full screen is eye-catching, too. So is its screen that itself is top-notch. The Galaxy S20 FE comes with a 6.5-inch FHD+ Infinity-O display. It is pretty bright with great colours and good contrast. A super-smooth 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch report rate ensures fluid scrolling and seamless gaming.

Moving on to the camera side, the Galaxy S20 FE brings a pro-grade triple camera along with the 32MP selfie Camera including tetra-binning technology that lets you instantly capture a post-worthy picture. With the device’s large image sensors including multi-frame processing, you can take richer, more vibrant images—even in low light —so you can simply snap and go. Night mode multi-frame processing with AI frame integration stabilises motion in-shot while you record, so you can focus on having fun.
