Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Review: Powerful Hardware Design and Parts Under $700 

It’s real fact smartphones are getting really expensive day-to-day. The flagship devices are increasing in terms of features, hardware design, and parts at pricey tags. But the consumers are introduced to a whole new segment the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, a premium midrange Samsung smartphone. This is one of the best Android phones, with powerful hardware and cheaper parts. 

But with Galaxy S20 FE parts you get the important stuff, with added bonus features, with an enticing price cut. 

Hardware, design, and display 

It is clear from the name that the Galaxy S20 FE is the lite version of the Galaxy S20. It looks just like the standard Galaxy S20. But the parts of Galaxy S20 FE are slightly different from the material used in the Galaxy S20. You get to see the plastic back body which isn’t premium, some users like the soft-touch feel this plastic offers while others don’t. 

The Galaxy S20 offers itself in lot more colors as compared to the standard S20. The galaxy S20 FE is available in more interesting colors, like Cloud Red, Cloud Lavender, and Cloud Orange. One for everyone. 

Rest the phone design is pretty fair. You get a USB-C port on the bottom, a volume rocker, and a power button on the right of the Galaxy S20 FE chassis. The Galaxy S20 FE holds a rectangular camera module on the top left of the Galaxy S20 FE’s rear body. 

The Galaxy S20 FE display is actually a little larger than the standard Galaxy S20. While the original device has a 6.2-inch display, the S20 FE replacement screen is a larger 6.5-inch display. The Galaxy S20 FE display has a 1080p resolution. So, it’s clear that Samsung reserves high-resolution displays for its pricier devices.  

Super AMOLED Galaxy S20 FE display and has an impressive 120Hz refresh rate. Offering an extremely smooth experience and a display that’s very responsive to touch. We wish to get high-refresh-rate displays over the next year. But till now we get the higher refresh rate Galaxy S20 FE display as a cheap part under just 700$. Galaxy S20 FE replacement screen at 120hz beats its competitor, marginally.  

It’s also important to note that the Galaxy S20 FE display is flat, not curved offering more durability. Considering the flat display, you shouldn’t face issues surrounding accidental palm presses. Still, you need to be careful while using the S20 FE as the impact on the floor, or any hard surface can damage the screen. The S20 FE replacement screen is not expensive as compared to the Standard Galaxy S20. 


Gone are the days when remarkable cameras were offered in the best flagship smartphones. The Galaxy S20 FE still delivers a versatile, high-quality camera experience. 

Galaxy S20 FE camera part comes with three following camera sensors: 

  • 12-megapixel standard sensor 
  • 8MP sensor with a telephoto lens 
  • 12MP sensor with an ultra-wide lens. 

It’s the best camera for all users, where some prefer either a telephoto or ultra-wide over the other. Simply having all three sensors make the Galaxy S20 FE camera useful in all kinds of situations. 

On the sheet, the specs don’t seem to compete with the standard Galaxy S20, but pictures taken with the Galaxy S20 FE camera are pretty much in daily use. The snaps are colorful and crispy. Though the camera does not offer enough dynamic range to make punchy photos. 

Photos taken now have more to do with the post-processing software enhancements than the camera sensor.  

Battery life and charging 

4500Mah battery of Galaxy S20 FE is able to get through a full day of use without any disturbance. At the end of the day after heavy usage, you will find around 10-15% of the battery remaining, which isn’t a to. The battery can lose its capacity if you are used to leaving the phone on charging every night. So, we recommend not to do that, or else you will need to replace the battery. The replacement battery for the s20 is also cheap compared to the flagship standard S20. 

Thankfully the wireless charging makes it easy to charge the S20 FE battery, plus you get 25 fast charging support. 


The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE parts put the flagship phone experience under $700. The phone doesn’t really miss much here. All the best parts of the S20 FE for a slightly lower price are available online. 

Though a high-resolution display is nice and camera specs don’t reach the highlights of the premium flagships. But with the Galaxy S20 FE, you get a much better processor, an awesome display, a premium display, and a great camera system. You can’t find such parts much better in this price range. 

Well, Samsung does this fan edition release to give tough competition to the mid-range device manufacturers. If Samsung keeps releasing phones with cheap parts and a premium feel, the competitors will be worried.

Is there a better alternative? 

Depending on what you are looking for there are many alternatives in this price range but may differ slightly in some specs or parts. So far, the OnePlus 8 is considered its competitor here, it’s a great phone no doubt. Still does not have a similar camera quality, you don’t get the 120Hz refresh rate display, also lacks wireless battery charging. What’s better is the software experience. But not many users go for the software when they are getting a premium device for the same price. 

In a similar price range stands the iPhone 11, with better performance and an awesome camera. You still have to deal with LCD display, nor will you get the 5G and a notch display. 

Last but not the least, the Galaxy S21 series is now here, offering enhanced performance, and a camera but has expensive replacement parts. 

How long will it last? 

According to the IP68 water resistance, along with the Snapdragon 865, the Galaxy S20 FE will easily last through a normal 2-3 years phone cycle. It may last longer if used with care. The plastic back kills its flagship look but helps ensure the body remains uncracked. 

Should you buy it? 

Yes, we recommend you buy the Galaxy S20 FE, as this is currently the flagship-level phone no other can beat. 

If you’re on the hunt for lower prices Galaxy S20 FE parts, here are the best parts of Galaxy S20 FE available online.
