Should you buy a Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, or a Pixel 5?

Should you buy a Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, or a Pixel 5?

Technology is supposed to become cheaper as it improves, but prices for high-end smartphones have done nothing but rise over the past few years. However, 2020 represents something of a change in attitude, as several companies have opted to revamp their pricing. There have always been options for cheaper smartphones, but now both Samsung and Google have released flagship-tier options for lower-than-normal prices.

The $700 Pixel 5 is Google's top phone this year, even if the internal hardware doesn't quite stack up against its competitors. Meanwhile, Samsung has slightly refreshed the Galaxy S20 and given it the same $700 price tag, deeming it the Fan Edition.

Samsung's top-end phones are getting more and more expensive at an alarming rate, as evidenced by the fact that very few people bought an S20 during the series's launch window. Seeing the gap to fill between bargain-bin budget phones and outright luxury devices, this week, Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. It costs $700 (currently $600 on sale), and it packs a ton of features we're used to seeing in flagships with very few compromises. This might just be the best phone of the year.

The Pixel 5 isn't even out yet, and Samsung already beat it

Today, Google officially announced the extremely leaked Pixel 5. It's a lovely device with a very cool green colorway option, and as an unrepentant Google hardware fan, I'm struggling against the urge to buy it. Honestly, there's only one thing stopping me: the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, launching early next month, is the exact same price at $699. And on paper, it's a much better value.

With the Galaxy S20 FE, Samsung looks poised to eat OnePlus's lunch

Samsung makes a lot of affordable phones in its A series, but its flagships have become notoriously pricey — case in point, the uber-premium Note20 Ultra starts at $1,300.

OnePlus better watch out.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will come in at least 6 colors, may have Snapdragon option in Europe

When Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 earlier this year, we really liked it. But it hasn't caught on with your average phone-shopper as strongly as last year's S10 series had. Following rumors of a lower-priced alternative to the original S20, some new specs and renders of this Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) 5G have surfaced.
