The Samsung Galaxy S20+ is the Goldilocks of the S20 series — it's not as compact as the smaller S20, and not as chunky as the S20 Ultra, but packs a spec sheet that's just right. Even so, being "just right" doesn't quite justify its steep price tag. If you've been hesitant to fork out the big money, there's a great opportunity to buy a brand-new, international model S20+ for $680 ($520 off) on eBay right now.
Samsung announced its latest flagship lineup earlier this year, with the devices packing the newest tech from the Korean manufacturer. Sadly, the S20+ cost a whopping $1,200 when it came out, which could have been a roadblock for many. Thankfully, the handset is now selling for $950 on Amazon, making the device a lot more affordable.
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 Samsung's website.
At the start of April, Samsung introduced a buyback program for its Galaxy S20 phones to encourage people to 'rent' a phone for 2 years at half the retail price. Now, the company is making another bid to attract upgrades by adjusting its top trade-in valuations for Apple, Google, and its own phones. The main takeaway for direct buyers? If you're giving up an older iPhone or Galaxy, you're likely getting a better deal.
While Samsung's S20 series brought us some of the manufacturer's most advanced products to date, they're also some of the most expensive smartphones on the market. Thankfully, we have a sizable deal on the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ at Amazon that can help you save $200 on either phone. As of right now, you can pick up the 128GB model of the Galaxy S20 or S20+ in the color of your choice for $799.99 and $999.99, respectively.
In many ways, the Galaxy S20+ is the perfect fit for most users. Its size places it directly between the smaller S20 and the hulking S20 Ultra, while its beefy battery and gorgeous edge-to-edge display make it a worthy handset that you'll never want to put down. With today's special offer, you can pick up a brand new S20+ for $738.99 ($461 off) at eBay.
The Galaxy S20 lineup comes with exceptional hardware and Samsung's familiar high-end design, but just like any tech product, they're not perfect. We were not too impressed by the ratio of the S20 Ultra's capabilities and its price, and now an issue has popped up that affects the whole S20 series: Some people report that they can't get a GPS lock in Google Maps and Waze on their brand-new phones.
Ever since the launch of the Galaxy S10 last year, developers have had a whale of a time making fun and exciting apps for the camera cutout. One of my favorites is Energy Ring, an app that, as the name implies, puts a ring around the hole-punch to represent your battery level. Due to the different display sizes and aspect ratios, the developer released a separate version of the app for the Note 10 series, and has now done the same for the S20 range.
Samsung put out its phones. We've put out our review. You've yet to make a purchase decision. It's okay. If you didn't pre-order a Galaxy S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra, don't worry: depending on which retailer your prefer, you may have greater incentive to buy a shiny new 5G phone today. We've got the details on all the sweeteners these brands are offering to get a shiny new slab in your hands.
