8.6/10
Informr score
The Samsung Galaxy S20+ currently has an Informr score of 8.6 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 36 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

What's good

  • Great multitasking and gaming
  • Comfortable in the hand
  • Beautiful 120hz HDR screen for movies and videos
  • All-day battery life
  • 5G support

What's bad

  • Tons of pre-installed apps
  • Fingerprint scanner is slow
  • No headphone jack
  • High price tag

As the middle option in Samsung's top-tier 2020 phone lineup, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ shares many features with its smaller sibling, the Galaxy S20.

In fact, outside of size, you'd have a tough time telling the difference between models at a glance.

However, digging into the specifications, you'll notice a few minor upgrades in the S20+, including:

  • A larger 6.7-inch display
  • A time-of-flight sensor in the rear camera for better depth mapping and photo detail
  • A larger 4,500mAh battery which reviewers found lasted a day with ease
  • Expanded multi-band 5G support

Otherwise, you'll find the same chart-topping processor, punchy display, and sleek design on offer from the other two models. For more information on what to expect, be sure to check out Samsung Galaxy S20 review.

If you’re looking for a flagship phone with category-leading speakers, the Galaxy S20+ isn’t it, especially if you want to pump out bass. The sound it does provide, though, is fairly well balanced and features solid mid-tones and treble. Speaker placement is good and helps prevent accidental occlusi...

If you’re looking for a flagship phone with category-leading speakers, the Galaxy S20+ isn’t it, especially if you want to pump out bass. The sound it does provide, though, is fairly well balanced and features solid mid-tones and treble. Speaker placement is good and helps prevent accidental occlusion. As far as use cases go, its playback performance for listening to music is a bit stronger than for watching movies or gaming. The S20+ is a much stronger choice when it comes to recording audio. Its only real weakness here is that recording performance varied based on the application used.

If you’re looking for an advanced camera phone from a well-established manufacturer at a lower cost than a premium flagship, Samsung’s Galaxy S20+ fits the bill. Its quad-camera offers dedicated wide, ultra-wide, zoom, and bokeh sensors, and in many respects its image quality is comparable to the more expensive Samsung S20 Ultra. Its ultra-wide camera and bokeh shots are particularly impressive, and exposure and color are excellent from all its cameras in virtually all lighting conditions. Autofocus is accurate and reliable, and detail is good, even if a bit oversharpened.

A flagship that ticks all the right boxes

from AndroidPIT

I have to say that the short battery life of the base S20 model and my fondness for very large smartphones really made me lean towards the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus. I was seduced by the sleek and clean design, and the camera setup is extremely capable, chock-full of features and modes to handle virtually every situation.

I am very impressed with the new technologies that are equipped in this year's Samsung flagship. It will undoubtedly cement itself as one of the best phones to come out for this year. However, with a rather high price of RM3999, it is only justifiable to demand the best performance that you can out of the S20+. Even though it is RM400 more expensive than the regular S20, the larger screen, battery and an extra camera makes it well worth the investment.

The Galaxy S20 Plus is the Galaxy S20 phone to buy, sitting at the right price with the right size screen in a body that’s sensibly sized. It’s very easy to use, very powerful, and the camera takes great photos in a variety of situations. It’s let down only by the bland design and some inconsistencies in the camera, but neither of these are deal-breakers.

A slick new phone

At the start of 2020’s phone season, the Galaxy S20+ provides a good refresh for Android owners wishing the new season would just get on with it, though Samsung needs to release fixes ASAP. Fix the Single Take mode, the camera speed, and the battery life, and Samsung is sure to have a winner.

Between its advanced camera setup, immersive display, and 5G capability, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ is an out-of-the-park home run. Yes, it takes up some serious real estate and costs more than your average smartphone, but you get so much in return. If you’re looking for a headphone jack, this isn’t the device for you. Everyone else should consider picking up Samsung’s latest, which might very well be its greatest.
