Samsung often faces the heat for ditching Snapdragon chipsets for Exynos in India. Well, in 2021 we are witnessing a different Samsung. The South Korean conglomerate is offering Snapdragon-driven phones with more enthusiasm than ever before. Taking this competitive approach further, it recently launched Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G that fixes a lot that was wrong with the 4G variant and is driven by the premium-tier Snapdragon 865.

The 5G Fan Edition is about six months late from the global launch, but is right in time to take on the newly launched OnePlus 9. Is it worth considering for under Rs 50,000? Let us share our thoughts on the Galaxy S20 FE 5G in this detailed review:

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G Unboxing

The S20 FE 5G landed on our doorstep in a simple package and after keeping it in isolation for two days we decided to unbox it.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G box doesn’t include a case cover, and this wasn’t really a surprise.

What you do get apart from the phone is a 15W wall charger (still there), and a USB-A-to-C cable for charging and data transfer. We are glad that there’s a pre-applied screen protector on the display.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G review: Design and build quality

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The Galaxy S20 FE 5G is an identical twin to the LTE version we tested last year. From the dimensions of the phone to colors, it’s almost impossible to differentiate between the two. We are definitely not complaining because we find the aesthetics of the Fan Edition phones very appealing.

The S20 FE 5G has a polycarbonate build with a matte finish that actually feels excellent in hand. Samsung seems to have a trick or two up its sleeves as it continues to surprise us by delivering a premium look and feel with plastic. Good quality PC has other advantages too – it is less fragile in comparison to an all-glass rear, lighter, and does not attract a lot of smudge and fingerprints either.
