When the Samsung Galaxy S20+ launched, it was $1,200 — a darn good phone at a darn high price. The price has dropped a bit to $1,000, but wouldn't it be nice to pay even less? If you want the flagship experience without paying the price, you can grab the dual-SIM international model of the Samsung Galaxy S20+ for just $635 on eBay.
Samsung released the Galaxy S20+ 5G earlier this year, but you probably didn't buy one. The 6.7" device is equipped with a Quad HD+ 120hz Display, 4500mAh of battery power, and Space Zoom — so it's understandably expensive. But right now, you can pick up a brand new US variant S20+ 5G from Microsoft's eBay Outlet Store for $899.99.
With Android 11 launching just last week, many phone-makers are rushing to get their various versions of the platform out into users hands for testing in beta programs. Samsung is no exception. In a very early and surprising move, Samsung has already pushed the One UI 3.0 pre-beta to a a few select partnered developers. Here's the official changelog for the beta.
There was a lot to love about the new Galaxy series when Samsung dropped its S20 trio earlier this year: Gorgeous 120Hz AMOLED displays, long-lasting batteries, and sophisticated camera systems to please all levels of photographers. With today's special deal, you can now save $200 on a brand new factory unlocked Galaxy S20, S20+, and even the exorbitant S20 Ultra at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo.
Samsung got incredibly fast when it comes to security patches, often beating even Google to the punch. The story is different for carrier-issued updates, but compared to prior years, they've gotten quicker, too. As such, AT&T has started pushing the update to the S20 series and the Note9 while the Verizon S9 and S9+ are in for the patches.
Samsung very recently unveiled its second flagship line for 2020 — the Galaxy Note20 — with a host of exclusive features as part of One UI 2.5. That exclusivity isn't lasting too long, however, and the company has already started porting a few of those features to its older phones. As of today, Samsung has started rolling out the One UI 2.5 update to the Galaxy S20 trio, with more devices expected to join soon.
Samsung just released the Galaxy Note20 series, and it might be the most polarizing Note lineup yet. The Note20 Ultra is undoubtedly an excellent phone, but it’s incredibly overpriced at $1,299, and the base Note20 is missing a few important features (even compared to the S20 series). Samsung’s overlapping product lineups can make it difficult to determine which exact model is best for you, but that’s what we’re here for.
Plenty of prepaid carriers in the United States already support 5G connectivity, like Metro by T-Mobile, US Mobile, and AT&T Prepaid, but the AT&T-owned Cricket Wireless hasn't made the leap yet. That's finally changing, as Cricket today announced that it is enabling 5G support on some of its plans.
The Galaxy S20 is undoubtedly an excellent phone and comes with some of the most advanced mobile technology. Unfortunately, when the handset was released February, it cost at least $1,000, which is incredibly high for a phone. Thankfully, thanks to these deals on eBay, you can snatch an S20 for just $620 or an S20+ for $640, making them far more affordable than before.

If you use a Samsung smartphone, you may not be getting the most out of it. As someone who uses a lot of smartphones on a regular basis, I definitely have a few choice modifications and settings changes I make to get Samsung's phones feeling more intuitive, functional, and just plain better as an overall experience. While not all of these changes may be to everyone's preference, and you may know a few of them, hopefully you'll be reminded of a few choice One UI* and Android options that can make your phone just a little bit nicer to use on a day to day basis.
