Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Review | TelecomDrive.com
As a global smartphone brand, Samsung has always delivered uniquely on innovation and with Galaxy S20 Plus – the company has taken this another notch up and set an unprecedented benchmark for the market. This device packs greatly improved cameras, stunning display and delivers a powerful performance.
Considerably improved camera capabilities
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is available now in India at Rs 77,900.
This design is just about perfect to fit in your hand. It is neither too small nor too big. This device comes with a new rectangular camera design and it really makes it look cool. With this device, Samsung has removed the Bixby button as well as the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Galaxy S20 Plus comes with a single punch hole on the front and it comes with a rectangular camera setup placed on the top left corner. This bold move gives this smartphone its own unique design statement.
This device offers an amazing 6.7-inch AMOLED display with WQHD+ (3200 x 1440) resolution that feels really great for viewing multiple kind of content. The device comes with 120Hz refresh rate.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus’ 6.7-inch AMOLED display is full of amazingly refreshing sharpness and delivers unique vibrancy with the help of WQHD+ resolution (3200 x 1440). And for all the gaming lovers – with this device – Samsung is bringing 120Hz refresh rate to a non-gaming smartphone.
This level of refresh rate enables smoother visuals and animation for games that support 120Hz, and even those with support for up to 60Hz or 90Hz. While reviewing the device, we also experience superb smoothness and fluidity in navigation between apps, and performing multi-tasking.
The Galaxy S20 Plus comes with three rear camera system – with an additional ToF depth sensor. The main camera of this device has been upgraded to deliver better capabilities in stills and handling of videos.
The biggest upgrade in this camera system comes in the form of the 64MP telephoto lens, which delivers 3x optical zoom and up to 30x hybrid zoom. While reviewing the device, we used this capability and the results were quite good and smooth.
Samsung has also given its regular set of camera capabilities such as Live Focus, Panorama, etc with this device. In addition to still photography, S20 Plus also delivers 8K video recording feature at 24fps – that’s simply amazing! Hence, this can be touted as the best future-ready device.
And the best part of 8K video is that it allows you to crop and edit video without losing anything on the quality. We experienced an extreme level of easy of use and comfort – while shooting videos and doing still photography with this device. When it comes to photography- still or video – this device can give any regular DSLR serious competition and I will personally give it points for being a powerful, yet handy companion.
When it comes to the night mode S20 Plus, scores well above any other device or benchmark. Even in poor lighting conditions, it can magically enhance the quality of image and deliver great shots.
Specs and performance
Being a flagship device coming from the house of Samsung – the specs of this smartphone are all top-of-the-line – 8GB RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 7nm chipset Samsung’s Exynos 990 in India, a microSD card slot for expandable storage.
These specifications power the heart of this device and deliver a wonderful and seamless performance. When it comes to day to day tasks – this device handles everything that is thrown at it quite smoothly. While reviewing this device – we used it for multi-tasking activities and there was no lag of any sort and it handled everything very smoothly.
Battery life and charging
In a normal workday, the smartphone can easily last more than a day of usage. It has all the charging features like fast wireless charging, reverse wired/wireless charging. It takes about 1 hour to get this device charged from 0-100%, and it reaches close to 50% in about 25 minutes time.
Galaxy S20 Plus is truly a majestic device; it delivers superbly on all fronts. It has a great design, wonderful set of cameras, and a stunning display. At INR 77,900 it is surely top-end device – meant for those who only settle for the best and nothing less.
