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 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.
Research house Canalys tracked 31.9 million smartphone shipments in the U.S. for the second quarter, down 5% from last year. Diverging plotlines between the novel coronavirus pandemic and the trade war with China are putting intense pressures on the industry in terms of cost and product strategy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
