Why do you need Samsung S20 Fan Edition – hello to Chinese companies

Hey.

For a long time, Chinese smartphone manufacturers have taken an approach where they have created many models with minor differences, and as part of this strategy, we have always had new products. For many buyers it did not matter that such new items were often inferior to the previous models of the same brand; novelty as the quality of the product came to the fore. Samsung could have adopted this strategy, but didn’t because it thought it was spraying marketing efforts. Plus, it should be noted that the leader of the smartphone market considers only one company to be a competitor – Apple. The reason for this is simple, in the premium segment, Apple’s sales are higher than Samsung’s, although the situation has been slowly changing over the past year. But in order to reverse this situation, we need products that will knock the earth out from under Apple’s feet, for example, in the base model of the iPhone 12. And this is exactly the device that is the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, it comes out shortly before the iPhone 12, has the best characteristics and it is also a novelty.

Почему аппарат назвали Fan Edition? Ответ кроется в том, что это маркетинговый ход. Было необходимо оставить принадлежность модели к семейству флагманов, отсюда имя S20. А вот Fan Edition — это отсылка к тому, что именно таких характеристик хотели потенциальные покупатели, то есть это глас народа. И это более изящный ход, чем приставка Lite, которая намекает, что в аппарате урезаны характеристики по сравнению с базовой моделью. Тут же вроде как все наоборот — просили именно так, а значит, получите и распишитесь.

Первое и главное изменение, которое мы видим, это корпус — он выполнен так же, как в Note20, это матовый пластик (glastic). Тесты на прочность показали, что такой тип материала очень надежен и выигрывает по прочности у Corning Gorilla Glass 7, а главное, можно не использовать чехол. Кто-то считает, что подобный материал не очень хорош, но это вкусовщина и другие представления о прекрасном. Корпус отличный и практичный.

The next moment that pleases me is the absence of a protruding camera unit, you can carry the device without a case! Nothing touches the edge of the pocket. But the flip side of that is that the telephoto camera is here with 8 megapixels. And despite the announced Space Zoom x30, you need to understand that the optical zoom will be the usual x3, you shouldn’t expect something like that.

The camera block provides the quality of the flagships of previous generations, this is a good quality, but, of course, you need to try it in practice. So far, I only praise in absentia, since I have not tried devices that will be sold at retail.

The next relative simplification is the screen, it is SuperAMOLED, but not Dynamic AMOLED, as in the usual S20. The diagonal has increased to 6.5 inches. There is 120Hz, but FullHD + resolution. In its class, the screen puts on the shoulder blades of all competitors, loses only to older models. Bright, comfortable, with accurate color reproduction. And a small plus is that it will have a flat display, no rounding.

The battery is 4500 mAh, that is, everything is exactly the same as in the S20 +, 500 mAh more than in the regular S20. We haven’t removed wireless charging and reverse charging, they are there, and this is a big plus for the device. For a day of work it will be enough calmly. Includes 25W fast charging.

The device is delivered to Russia only in the 4G version (on the Exynos 990), 6 GB RAM, built-in 128 GB. Of course, there are memory cards. And here everything looks at the level, no worse than in older models.

Brief impressions and perspectives

Начало продаж 9 октября, стоимость — 49 990 рублей. Много это или мало? Стоимость базового S20 составляет 59 990 рублей, на сером рынке его можно найти дешевле (то же самое случится и с S20 FE через какое-то время). Цена адекватна тем характеристикам, что предлагаются, и этот аппарат понравится молодежи, тем, кто не готов покупать старшие модели. Мне модель чем-то напоминает S10e, который снят с производства, такой же упрощенный флагман, который нашел массу покупателей и стал популярен на рынке. В этом году модель выходит через полгода после основной линейки и несколько иначе позиционируется.

Первоначальные продажи S20 FE будут уверенными, но в полный рост эта модель встанет в момент выхода iPhone 12 в ноябре. Сравнение базовой версии iPhone 12 (не Mini, а именно базовой, что приходит на смену iPhone 11) покажет пропасть между этими аппаратами. Веселые цветовые решения, практичный корпус, адекватная стоимость — все вместе дает нам потенциальный бестселлер. Но главное, что перед Новым годом в рамках скидок и аттракционов невиданной щедрости этот аппарат можно будет купить по 40-45 тысяч рублей. Что сделает его безальтернативным выбором в этом ценовом сегменте.
