8.6/10
Informr score
The Samsung Galaxy S20+ currently has an Informr score of 8.6 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 37 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

What's good

  • Great multitasking and gaming
  • Comfortable in the hand
  • Beautiful 120hz HDR screen for movies and videos
  • All-day battery life
  • 5G support

What's bad

  • Tons of pre-installed apps
  • Fingerprint scanner is slow
  • No headphone jack
  • High price tag

As the middle option in Samsung's top-tier 2020 phone lineup, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ shares many features with its smaller sibling, the Galaxy S20.

In fact, outside of size, you'd have a tough time telling the difference between models at a glance.

However, digging into the specifications, you'll notice a few minor upgrades in the S20+, including:

  • A larger 6.7-inch display
  • A time-of-flight sensor in the rear camera for better depth mapping and photo detail
  • A larger 4,500mAh battery which reviewers found lasted a day with ease
  • Expanded multi-band 5G support

Otherwise, you'll find the same chart-topping processor, punchy display, and sleek design on offer from the other two models. For more information on what to expect, be sure to check out Samsung Galaxy S20 review.

If you’re looking for a flagship phone with category-leading speakers, the Galaxy S20+ isn’t it, especially if you want to pump out bass.

DxOMark

If you’re looking for an advanced camera phone from a well-established manufacturer at a lower cost than a premium flagship, Samsung’s Galaxy S20+ fits the bill. Its quad-camera offers dedicated wide, ultra-wide, zoom, and bokeh sensors, and in many respects its image quality is comparable to the mo...

AndroidPIT

I have to say that the short battery life of the base S20 model and my fondness for very large smartphones really made me lean towards the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus. I was seduced by the sleek and clean design, and the camera setup is extremely capable, chock-full of features and modes to handle virtu...
