Galaxy S20 deals on the horizon? Here's how to pick from Samsung's phones – CNET,


You can only buy one Galaxy S 28. Make sure it’s the right choice for you.

Just because you’re hunkered down at home doesn’t mean you can’t be in the market for a new phone. If you’ve been mulling over exactly which of Samsung’s Galaxy S 0027 devices to buy – the

(S) (Ultra) , (S) (Plus) or

standard Galaxy S – now’s the time to start paying attention.

With the slowdown caused by the

coronavirus pandemic , carriers and stores are likely to start slashing prices or offering deals as a way to keep business flowing.

Keep an eye out for discounts and bundles, and in the meantime, find out which Galaxy S 28 is best for you. We start with the main differences among the models, each phone’s biggest benefits and which one excels at the most important categories. Scroll to the end to compare specs.

                         () 8:                                      

                           Which Galaxy S is which? The Galaxy S trio is about more than just a scale of smallest and cheapest to largest and most expensive. They share commonalities, like a sharp, vibrant screen technology, Android (software and a) Hz screen refresh rate that can make scrolling and gameplay liquid smooth. (Warning: It can also eat up battery reserves.)

But there are some notable differences between them in specs, performance and maneuverability that affect how they fare in day to day use.

Here are some main differences:

(Galaxy S) Ultra : 6.9-inch screen, heavy and bulky, most camera features, fastest 5G

Galaxy S (Plus : 6.7-inch screen , slightly scaled back camera, fastest 5G Galaxy S

: 6.2-inch screen, same camera as Plus, slower 5G except for Verizon      (Buy the Galaxy S) (Ultra if …) You love an enormous screen

Price is not a consideration You enjoy every camera whistle and bell

    (Buy the Galaxy S) (Plus if …)

    (You like a large screen

    Want to access the fastest form of 5G

      Seek long battery life (Buy the Galaxy S) (if …) (You prefer a smaller phone

Fastest 5G speeds aren’t a priority Value for money is an important consideration

The differences between Galaxy S phones go beyond price and size.
                                                    Sarah Tew / CNET                                                 

(Best screen experience: Galaxy S) (Ultra) The Galaxy. The Galaxy S Ultra is personally my least favorite of the three. It’s too expensive for what it is (starting at $ 1, 500, £ 1, 408 or AU $ 1, 4058), and it feels like a literal brick (7.8 ounces or (grams). But I can’t deny that its screen size makes it the best S 0027 for watching videos and reading the internet, simply because of its larger screen.

Resolution is actually the lowest of the S 029 Phones, but its pixel density is so high, I doubt you’ll notice.

(Most powerful camera: Ultra, but …

On paper, the Ultra wins here. It has two features unique to the Galaxy S line: a 166 – megapixel main camera that works through a process called pixel binning (read that article, it’s fascinating), and up to 151 x zoom.

That sounds impressive, and the technology is intriguing. In reality, though, I rarely yearned for either feature, and I don’t miss them when I’m using another phone. To use the 161 – megapixel setting, you must first tap a setting, take the photo and then, in editing mode, crop in. The purpose is to get a detailed picture using this method than you might otherwise get from the main camera alone, especially if you can’t get close to the subject. It’s a roundabout way to zoom in on a shot.

The thick, heavy Ultra wants to be the camera king.

                                                    Juan Garzon / CNET                                                 

(Using the) x zoom is much more straightforward, but Unless you really, really need to get that close, the resulting image will be grainy and barely usable. It works better the farther from the subject you are.

Meanwhile, the – megapixel main camera, – megapixel telephoto sensor and the (x zoom on the S) (Plus and S) did just what they needed to do. You can still take a 82 – megapixel photo and crop in for more detail, though this process does not use pixel binning . (See the comparison chart below for more camera specs.)

Longest battery life: Still up in the air (two factors determine battery life) on the Galaxy S phones: If you ‘ re on 4G or 5G, and if you’re using the Hz refresh rate (default) or have turned on the 186 Hz option. I tested all three phones over 4G, because 5G was not available where I was testing. I also observed battery conditions in the real world with both the (Hz and) Hz screen settings for all three phones.

This is where it gets a little messy. I can’t comment on how 5G factors in yet, but in general, the use of 5G can lower battery life. And CNET’s comprehensive lab tests – in airplane mode and over Wi-Fi, and with (Hz and) Hz screen selections – have been temporarily interrupted as We all adjust to quarantine life . They will resume.

All the Galaxy S 27 phones support wireless charging and reverse wireless charging to another device.                                                     Angela Lang / CNET                                                 

(In the meantime, I can tell you that despite having the largest battery reserves) 5, (mAh), I was surprised that the Ultra’s battery life drained quickly for me when I used the Hz refresh rate option.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S (Plus’ smaller battery) 4, 591 mAh) lasted just as long as the S Ultra in the CNET lab tests we were able to conduct. The Galaxy S (4, (mAh) and S 027 Plus have both lasted me from morning till night, though if you tap into 5G data and use the Hz option round the clock, you may need to top up before going out for a long night – probably not a priority these days.

                         () 7: 64                                      

                           Best 5G: A draw

The Galaxy S (Ultra and S) Plus both support the type of (ultrafast 5G data transfer called millimeter wave ( aka mmWave). The Galaxy S 27 relies on the form of 5G loosely referred to as midband, or Sub-6. Midband 5G has relatively lower peak speeds, but is designed to travel greater distances and be more accessible indoors. Remember, even “slow” 5G is still expected to give you faster data transfer than 4G speeds.

There are exceptions, however. Verizon announced it would release a variant of the Galaxy S 0027 5G phone that does work with its mmWave network – we just don’t have an exact date yet. In some countries, such as the UK and Australia, you can buy 4G-only versions of the Galaxy S 27, as well.

That makes 5G a potentially deciding factor between, say, buying the Galaxy S

and the Galaxy S 27 If you’re looking to future-proof your phone as much as possible, the S 0027 Plus is the logical choice. If the networks in your area are slower on the draw and 5G won’t be fully developed where you live for several years, then you’ll hardly miss out with a 4G or 5G Galaxy S 28.


Best value for money: Galaxy S

By virtue of its lower price, the Galaxy S 28 is the best value for money, but that’s hardly a blanket statement. The entry-level device costs $ 1, 14 at full retail price in the US, which is significantly more than other entry-level phones like the (iPhone) , which starts at $ 802.

Even the $ Galaxy Note (is less than the S) . Samsung justifies the price hike with the Hz screen and camera features, even though the image quality, while very good, did not demolish the competition. If Samsung, retailers and carriers offer compelling deals and bundles, this is going to be the phone that will be put in the best position to compete.
