Mention 3 Pros of your review device:
Design - The design is great and you get to hold a large display phone in your hand which is not heavy at all.
Display-My phone comes with an 2K and 120 Hz refresh rate. I am someone who loves to binge so I got to used the the glorious 2K HDR10+ display to watch movies and tv series. To someone who might be into gaming, there's 120 Hz refresh rate option available for you!
Camera- Best part of the phone is the camera setup S20+ has. The pictures look so real and now you get a 3x lossless zoom and also 30x zoom.
Mention 3 Cons of your review device:
Fast Charging- My phone supports only 25 watt fast charging which takes almost 1 full hour to charge from 0 to 100%. Samsung also has a 45 watt charger bu the device itself does not support above 25 watt fast charging.
No 5G support- I understand that we don't have 5G in India yet but it kind of feels bad when you get to see phones like OnePlus 8 or Xiaomi 10 Pro which has 5G variants at a much lower price. I mean, just imagine paying 74k and not getting a future proof phone :(
Write about the performance of your review device:
CPU Benchmark analysis-
I used the Geek bench 5 app to test the performance of my device and I got Single -Core Score as 571 and Multi-Core Score as 2428 which is less as compared to the S20+ Snapdragon version even if we keep a 10% error margin.
GPU Benchmark analysis-
I used 3D mark app to do the analysis and got 6418 as Sling Shot Extreme - OpenGL ES 3.1 overall score and 6199 as Vulkan overall score .
Storage Benchmark Analysis-
I used the Androbench app for this and these are the scores I got:-
Sequential Read - 1498.44 MB/s
Sequential Write - 658.39 MB/s
Random Read - 190.9 MB/s, 48872.25 IOPS (4KB)
Random Write- 206.06 MB/s,52753.53 IOPS (4KB)
Overall, if I were to rank processors then I would place the Snapdragon 865 at 1st place and my processor i.e Exynos 990 at 2nd place and then Snapdragon 855+ would take the 3rd place.
Write about the software of your review device:
S20+ comes with Android 10 and One UI 2.1 on top of it. I feel with the One UI 2.1 Samsung has near perfected the User Experience by enabling the user to use the phone with just one hand.
For eg. if you take a look at the messages app, the top half of the phone just has the word "messages" written and the 2nd half or the bottom half of the phone has all the messages.
This itself tells the user what he is viewing as the whole top half portion just has that one word and the also allows the users to use single hand to open, type or delete the messages.
Write about the battery life of your review device:
Battery life is good but the charging time is very bad.
I took the battery charging test with the original Samsung Charger (25 Watt Fast charger) that came with the phone and here are the results:-
0 min -> 0%
15 min ->21%
30 min ->43%
60 min ->84%
1hr 23min -> 100%
It took 1 hour and 23 minutes to go from 0 to 100% ! It says "Super Fast Charging" !
I also took the Real World Battery drain test by keeping the phone at 69% battery and started playing PUBG at MAX settings for 15 min. Lost the game and also only 4 % battery life.
Started watching 30 min of Space Force featuring Steve Carrell aka Michael Scott on Netflix.
My battery went from 64% to 60% in these 30 min.
Then finally at 59% battery I opened Google maps with navigation GPS on test for 1 hour and my battery life at the end of this 1 hour was 51%.
Overall I think the battery optimisation is good on S20+ because this test kept my phone on for like 2 hours straight and the battery drain was just 18% .
Conclusion, it might take lot of time to charge but the phone can last all day long.
Write about the design and display of your device:
Design of S20+ is simply GREAT! Samsung have reduced the curve around the phone because in the past it let to many accidental touches and now the curve is just perfect. Also the rear camera bump is not too much and the front camera placement could be better if it was in corner instead of middle.With 90.5% screen to body ration the phone looks completely bezel less.
Display wise S20+ has the best Super AMOLED screen of 6.7 inch with a 2K display resolution. The pictures and movies look very good on this screen that this phone has replaced my iPad as the binge watching device. The phone also has a feature where if you start a video it would immediately bump up the video quality.

This phone is just amazing if you are looking for some high end phone with premium feel and tired of oneplus. This is the one for you. I have been using this phone as my daily driver for past 2months. I loved the feel of the phone. Samsung display is always amazing, performance wise its good but not the best in the market coz its an exnoyns but haven't faced a single lag. Coming to the battery its a great battery house with a large battery gives me 6-9hours of backup with heavy usage , gaming and sometimes idle with 120hz and always on display. The only drawback I have seen is while charging its taking a long time than expected. Apart from that the phone is just amazing.
It is my first flagship phone and I am really satisfied with the phone. Thd phone looks amazing and is very light to hold and display is simply superb. The best thing about this phone is its signal reception. It manages to give decent 4G download speed in areas where my previous phones were struggling to get network. Camera is pretty good. Zoom works quite well upto 10X and after that pictures tend to lose their quality. Night mode is pretty decent and selfie camera is amazing as well. Battery drains bit faster in heavy usage, maybe because of the display and response rate. Overall I am quite satisfied with this purchase.
Awesome mobile with power packed performance. You will just love the camera in it. Display qith 120 Hz option you will love the flow which is smooth as butter.
I am in love with this phone...But i gave performance 3 out of 5 even though its good... Mainly because the performance is not stable due to Eynosssss Chip...I am sorry yes Samsung...Eynos chip...its still not as good at performance as SNAPDRAGON...I am saying this after using OP 7 Pro...Its lacking in camera and premiumness but its chip which is just 855 is better at performance than this.. almost... Heating issue after playing or using camera for 4-5 minutes is not a small issue...Samsung please...I needed a good chip.... but due to custom duty i was not able to buy this products US unlocked version... Charging is super Battery life is super Camera is super Display is super Design i super Color i super Speed t 120 or even 60 is super I still live it.......
This phone is a beast. Battery is working great as the pre booking offer, I also got the Galaxy buds+. The camera in every specs is awesome and performance is still at its best. Just found out one problem, that after a little usage it gives a mild heating.
Nice phone Waheguru jio
Camera- excellent Build quality- best Feel 120hz - excellent (takes a toll on battery) Speed - very good Heating- moderate Battery- very nice So the only issue i have is the exynos variant sold here because the snapdragon one is so much more superior that it feels we are being a bit cheated. The phone heats up a bit after prolonged gaming and the battery life plunges when that happens.
The performance is really good. Camera quality is excellent. Battery performace is good with a days battery with standard use. Overall the phone is excellent and value for money.
One of the best piece of art that money can buy as on today.... Gorgeous display Awsum camera Great battery life... last full day with heavy usage Fast charging is snappy.....charges full battery in 60 mins Loved it.....
