However, if you will be waiting until the official release day before you make that decision to buy, here is a guide to help you make sure you choose the right one for you.

For Gamers

Samsung Galaxy S20

Before the Samsung Galaxy s20 series was launched, Asus ROG Phone 2 and Razer Phone 2 were the best smartphones suitable for gaming, this is because of their high refresh rates, processors, display size, etc. The Samsung Galaxy s20 now beats these devices as it is the first mainstream Android smartphone with a 120Hz refresh rate.

The Samsung Galaxy s20 series (s20, s20 Plus, and s20 Ultra) all come with 120Hz display refresh ratings, which makes them perfect for gaming. They also come with Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor; Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.

As a gamer, the Galaxy s20 Plus is the right choice. It comes with the same display refresh rating and processor as the Galaxy s20 Ultra. Although its battery capacity (which is vital in gaming) is slightly lower (4500mAh) than the Galaxy s20 Ultra (5000mAh), it is still a worthy option considering the cost of the Galaxy s20 Ultra.  

For Photo Lovers/ Photographers/ Videographers

Samsung Galaxy S20

The Samsung Galaxy s20 Ultra is miles ahead of the other Galaxy s20 variants (s20 and s20 Plus) in the camera and photographing department.

Some of the impressive camera qualities of the Galaxy s20 Ultra include the 108-megapixel sensor, the 100x zoom lens that reveals details you can’t see from afar with the naked eye, and the detailed crop-in feature that lets you grab a 33-megapixel snapshot from anywhere in an 8K video.

If you are a professional photographer, videographer, or you just want a smartphone that’ll give you the best image quality when you take pictures, then the Galaxy s20 Ultra is your only option here. It’s quite expensive but it’ll get the job done.

Selfie Freak?

Even though the Galaxy s20 Ultra still beats the Galaxy s20 and Galaxy s20 Plus in the front camera department, they still offer great photographs, with each having a 10 mega-pixel, F/2.2 front camera.

Because they both have a high aperture rating which lets more light travel through the lens of the front camera, they can deliver top-quality images. In fact, very few smartphones have the F/2.2 aperture rating.

So, if you are particular about taking pictures with the front camera, then any of the Samsung Galaxy s20 series is a good option, but considering cost, you should go for the Galaxy s20 or s20 Plus.   

Pick One

Now that you know which variant of the Samsung Galaxy s20 series would suit your need, go ahead and pre-order it or head to the store to purchase it when it eventually hits the store.
