One of the best in it's price range. Mine was an "open box" item just under $500.00. Nice comfortable screen size. Phone is pretty thin and light. Battery life is great with resolution and screen refresh rate adjusted to medium levels. I can go three days with light use and all day with heavy video/ game use. These phones charge quick too so I just plug it in once briefly during the day and I never have to worry about the battery. Photos are clear and detailed and camera has some nice setting options. Screen image quality is excellent as well. Mine did not come with any type of screen protection so you will need to purchase one.
I replaced my beloved LG G5 with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE UW based on the reviews and the camera specs. I like the size of the phone which is basically the same width as my G5 but about 3/4 of an inch taller. Easy to hold and use. However, the display and camera I found to not be any better than my 4 year old G5 and in some instances not as good (selfie camera). Part of the problem may be one of expectations because I had read that AMOLED displays are superior to LCD IPS screens, I am not finding that to be the case in the S20 FE which has an AMOLED display. The FE display is not bad, it is just doesn't seem to be quite as good as my G5's LCD IPS screen as far as depth, color and clarity. The display in one thing but the selfie camera in another. While I had read that Samsung's pictures tend to have a "hyper real" look which did not sound bad to me in theory but in practice I do not like it. The pictures seem to have an exaggerated sharpness combined with a flatness. As one reviewer wrote , "Samsung does not like shadows" and I would agree. The shadows are all lightened which takes away from the the depth of the pictures. I am happy to report the rear camera does not suffer the same flatness as the selfie camera and on the positive side, the rear camera does have an optical zoom feature which the G5 does not. They both have Ultra wide. I will also point out that both cameras has several adjustment options and I have not tried most of them yet so one may be able to adjust them better to one's liking. As far as the phone and the features it has, I generally like it, and the transfer of apps from my G5 was pretty easy so I am not totally unhappy with my purchase just surprised that the camera and the display didn't quite live up to the hype.
I normally don't buy the latest and greatest new phones as I'll usually buy a used phone for around$250. I'm switching from the S8+ and was about to buy the S10+ then decided to get the S20 FE. Decided to pay the difference and get the newest upgrade to the S20, which just saves me money in the long run. The featured cameras sealed the deal. So far I've experienced no problems and had a very easy time transferring content. I would definitely recommend this phone. I love Samsung phones.
