    The Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra all come with a 120Hz display, and this provides a couple of benefits over lower refresh rate panels.
  • Much better cameras
    Both the standard model and the Galaxy S20+ have 12MP wide sensors, 12MP ultra-wide shooters, and 64MP telephoto units with 3x optical and 30x digital zoom. The Galaxy S20+ even adds a ToF depth sensor.
  • Bigger batteries with better fast charging
    That larger batteries are needed for the more power-hungry screens. The Galaxy S20 series tops 15W wirelessly. On wired charging, the Galaxy S20 and S20+ are capable of 25W, while the S20 Ultra boasts 45W.
  • 5G is the future, and the Galaxy S20 is more futureproof
    5G is not yet available in every market, which is why Samsung offers the Galaxy S20 in LTE flavor in some regions. But if you want to buy a more futureproof flagship then the Galaxy S20 is it.
