differences among Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 UltraSamsung released 3 models of Galaxy S20. So what are the major differences among Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra?

This Galaxy S20 guide explains the top 10 differences of these 3 models to help you choose the correct Galaxy S20 model for your needs. The major differences among Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 ultra include screen size, price, rear camera system, front camera, battery capacity, RAM, storage, colour options, weight and charging speed.

Please note, in some regions, the configuration options (RAM, storage, colour, 5G, LTE) may be limited. But software features are all identical in these three Galaxy S20 phones.

Screen Size

All of the three phones share the same screen resolution (WQHD+, 3200×1440) and display technology (Dynamic AMOLED 2X).

And all of the three phones support 120Hz refresh rate (at 1080p resolution) as explained in this page. FYI, most of the mainstream TVs, smartphones, PC monitors, laptop screens have a refresh rate of 60Hz.

But the size of the screen differs on these 3 phones:

  • Galaxy S20: 6.2″
  • Galaxy S20+: 6.7″
  • Galaxy S20 Ultra: 6.9″

The size difference between Galaxy S20 and the other two big brothers is obvious.  Between Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra, the difference is not so obvious.

In addition to the size, the curvature of the edge of the screen also differs noticeably among these 3 phones. Galaxy S20 screen is the flattest. Galaxy S20 Ultra has the sharpest curvature.

Please note,  the aspect ratio of the screen on Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra is 20:9. So, Galaxy S20 looks narrower than Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 (19:9), and therefore the 6.9″ Galaxy S20 Ultra is narrower than the 6.8″ Galaxy Note 10+ (76mm vs 77.2mm in width).


What is common in the price of the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra is expensive.

Among these 3 expensive Galaxy S20 models, Galaxy S20 Ultra is the most expensive starting at $1399 (with the base configuration).

Galaxy S20 starts at $999, and S20+ at $1199. These are for base (aka, minimum) configurations only, again.

This is a huge jump from the Galaxy S10 series.

It seems  Samsung cannot make the best Android phone. But they can make the most expensive mainstream Android phones.

Actually, Galaxy S20 is more expensive than the latest iPhone 11 Pro, which starts at $999 only.

Surely, this price is not sustainable.  … Read the rest
