Who are the different Samsung Galaxy S20 models suitable for?

The Samsung Galaxy S20 is completely sufficient for simple applications such as making calls, surfing the Internet, watching videos, etc.

However, if you have more intensive needs or want to create high-quality content, you should take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus and S20 Ultra 5G models. The latter also has the advantage that it offers very stable data and radio communication via 5G, the latest network standard. The heart of these two professional devices are the cameras, which use modern technologies to capture images with high sharpness and color depth.

Finally, the Galaxy S20 FE can be viewed more as a phablet. The differences to the standard S20 model are otherwise small.
