What the Critics Are Saying...


GSMArena

After a little extra consideration, the Plus can still make a compelling case for itself against the S20. The significantly larger display may be enough for the right customer, while carrier subsidies could shrink the price difference from the nominal $200/€100 to something more appealing.

The S20+ is an across the board flagship, and while its design lacks a bit of va va voom and the zoom isn’t S20 Ultra good, as a package, it strikes a brilliant balance.

I'd say that this is a phone worth buying if you're in an area with both sub6 and mmWave 5G, since that's really what you're paying for. Also, if you're just looking for the latest from Samsung, don't worry about the camera, because if you're upgrading from an older Samsung phone, you're used to thi...

I'd say that this is a phone worth buying if you're in an area with both sub6 and mmWave 5G, since that's really what you're paying for. Also, if you're just looking for the latest from Samsung, don't worry about the camera, because if you're upgrading from an older Samsung phone, you're used to this kind of image processing. But if you're a smartphone camera enthusiast that deeply cares about the quality of photos, I'd say skip this one.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is a nearly-perfect smartphone that connects to more 5G networks and has better cameras than ever, though you’ll be paying for the privilege, as this is the priciest Plus smartphone yet. If you don’t mind ho-hum design, the phone handles anything you throw at it, and should last you years - especially assuming 5G networks stay compatible with the S20 Plus as they build out.

If you’re a Galaxy S10 user, then you can skip the Galaxy S20+ for now. The only noticeable upgrades you’ll get with Samsung Galaxy S20+ is a bigger battery, 120Hz display, and slightly better camera performance. Having said that, the Galaxy S20+ is a good standalone Android flagship smartphone. I have two major complaints for Samsung in the S20+ and those are the common design approach (same as S10 Lite or Note Lite) and just the 25W fast charging.

If you do want to stick with Android, though, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus still makes a fine choice. The display, features, battery life and performance are all top notch and, although the camera can’t quite beat the iPhone 11 Pro for all-round performance (or the pricier S20 Ultra), there isn’t a massive amount of difference. You’ll be happy with the results, either way.

An exceptional all-rounder with one of the nicest displays on the market

from Tech Advisor

Both the Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ are exceptional all-rounders, the problem is that, in a sense, they're too similar. Beyond a larger display, there's little reason to opt for the plus model over its more compact sibling, especially when doing so adds £100 to £200 onto the price tag.

Most people will get what they need to from the standard S20, for $200 less than what you pay for the Plus. But of the two phones, the Plus is more convenient when you want a larger viewing screen, and the keyboard won't feel as tight as the S20's if you have larger hands. Photography is excellent, battery life will take you from morning to night, and it's packed with all the essential features found in Samsung's S20 trio. I also appreciate its full-throttle 5G support.
