What’s up? everyone is talking about the Galaxy s 20 Ultra. But I feel like there isn’t enough talk about the S 20 and the S 20 plus.
So what I’m going to do today is unbox both of these phones, give you a quick breakdown of what’s different and give you a camera comparison between these 2.
Because for some reason, it’s requested in the comment section of my last article.
So let’s go ahead and get started. The box will show you in the s 20 letterings what color you purchase.
This is nice, but I’m going to unbox the Galaxy s 12 plus first because this 1 is special. This is the cloud. White Korean unlocks the Snapdragon model. I love this color and I’m not really sure why this wasn’t available worldwide.
You get a white charging brake that matches the color of the phone. And again, like my S 20 ultra unboxing, which you can check out if you want to.
You don’t get a USP A to C transfer adapter. The USP see to see the cable is white standard stuff, but you get white AKG USGBC headphones, which look really nice in my opinion. This version in the top sleeve came with a nice, thin, and clear case. I really, really like the case. It keeps the phone slim and gives it a lip on the top and bottom to slightly protect a screen. When you put it on a surface, face down.
But I wouldn’t expect crazy protection from the case. I’m probably going to use the speaking liquid air case I’ve been using on my ultra. The S 20 is the same unboxing experience. Nothing new here at all.
In my preorder, though, I was able to request the transfer adapter for free, which is cool black accessories like we’ve seen for the last couple of years with the 25-watt fast-charging brick, but no case included in this top sleeve.
I wish they would have included 1, but I do like this baby blue color.
It is a little too muted in my opinion, but is the nicest color that you can get in the U.S.. Before I get to the camera comparison.
Let’s talk about a few things that are different. The most visible is the screen size. The S 20 has the smallest display at 6.2 inches and the S 20 plus has a 6.7-inch display. They are both dynamic and led and have that awesome 120-hertz refresh rate.
So that all depends on preference on the size. But the S when has the smallest battery at 4000 million hours. But even then, that is a battery for a device.
The small and the ESC 20 plus has the bigger 4500 million power battery.
Both of the ones I have here are powered with the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 processor and 12 gigabytes of RAM. They both have 5G built-in.
But the S 20 only has the port for sub 6 gigahertz 5G where the ESC 20 plus has support for both sub 6 and millimeter-wave 5G. Not a huge problem in my opinion, since 5G is still in its infancy.
Thank goodness I have the Snapdragon models because I have not heard good stuff about the X and those models.
The camera setup is the same on both of these. Besides the time of flight sensor on the S 20 plus model. Both have the 12 megapixels Sony IMX 555 sensor with 1.8 microns and f 1.8 aperture. Also, there’s a 64-megapixel secondary sensor which will give you nice high resolution shots if you want to see how this does against the Galaxy s 20 Ultra.
Make sure you watch this video I made because it is a full head-to-head comparison with all of the images that you’ll ever need to make a buying decision.
Besides, the cameras really have all of the same features, So no real differences here.
Here are some images that I took side by side. And just like I expected, shots from the main camera look pretty much identical.
I think most people had the question, does the time of flight sensor make a difference? And I took a lot of close-up shots and life-focused shots well.
And I don’t see enough of a difference to say that you’ll miss it if you’re really into that time of flight could make a difference. But when it comes to raw image quality, I’m not seeing a difference.
I only saw 1 result where the ESC 20 plus did much better on the life-focused shot.
You can see here where it blurred out in between the holes. Very impressive. Where the S 20 misses that there might be some minor differences. So let me know if you see any. But I don’t think it’s enough to worry. I did notice that the metering was different on the S 20 more aggressive when tapping into focus.
It gives way more attention to the brighter lights crushing everything else around it. The shots look the same if you don’t have to focus, though, so no worries. I just didn’t know why the S 20 plus didn’t have the exact results.
And you can always adjust the exposure to achieve the same results on both cameras.
So it’s no big deal. So what I’m gonna do is just show you all the remaining camera samples side by side, including night most shots, and let me know if you can see a difference. I hope this article helped you make a buying decision.
