5 great utilities to make the most of your Galaxy S20

Samsung phones are packed with features on the software and hardware front, and figuring it all out can be daunting. As well as the extras that Samsung includes officially, the specialized hardware and software in its phones allow third-party developers to come up with inventive new apps and add-ons for Galaxy products. There are plenty of apps that take advantage of these extra abilities, so let's focus on five of the best.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 will support electronic IDs later this year

The Samsung Galaxy S20 will support electronic IDs later this year

Samsung is working on making online identity verification easier by creating a framework that lets you store your ID securely on the Galaxy S20's embedded secure element (eSE) chip. The API will be available later this year, and is deemed safe enough by German and European authorities — the country will be among the first to let citizens store their IDs on the Galaxy S20 and use the eIDs to identify themselves online.

Get an open-box Verizon Galaxy S20 Ultra for only $980 ($420 off) from eBay

Get an open-box Verizon Galaxy S20 Ultra for only $980 ($420 off) from eBay

Calling the S20 Ultra a troubled device is an understatement. A lackluster camera and underwhelming design coupled with a ridiculously high price tag made it a hard phone to recommend. Despite those flaws, I really like my S20 Ultra, which I've had since launch. The build quality is incredible, and the display and battery life are, in my opinion, unparalleled. eBay is currently selling this phone open-box for $980, which still makes this an expensive smartphone. But if you're already eyeing the Ultra, a $420 discount is something you can't miss.

10 One UI productivity features you should be using on your Galaxy S20

10 One UI productivity features you should be using on your Galaxy S20

Every year there seem to be plenty of articles discussing how to make your new Samsung phone feel like a Pixel. I even wrote one, for those of you who do want a Pixel-like experience. I don't necessarily think it's a good idea, however — if you want your phone to be like a Pixel, you should've bought a Pixel in the first place. It also gives the impression that One UI is terrible, or at least worse than stock Android. While some might agree with that, I certainly don't. In my opinion, One UI is the best flavor of Android out there, and it has lots of features and tricks that deserve more attention.

Samsung Good Lock updates bring new features to One Hand Operation +

Samsung Good Lock updates bring new features to One Hand Operation +

Good Lock is one of my favorite parts of One UI, which is why I've droned on about it so many times. In short, Good Lock houses several modules that allow you to tweak your Samsung software experience, offering a degree of control that rival custom ROMs. Several of those modules just received new updates today, most of which are small bug fixes. However, One Hand Operation + got a more significant update, bringing some new features, as well.

Samsung Galaxy S20 series updates with July patch now rolling out in Europe

Samsung Galaxy S20 series updates with July patch now rolling out in Europe

Samsung used to be known for updating its devices notoriously late, but gradually, it has become one of the most active manufacturers when it comes to software and security patches, often even outpacing Google itself. As such, SamMobile reports that the company has already started rolling out the Android July security patch to its S20 series, beginning in Korea. The new release brings zoom and video stabilization improvements to the camera and sunsets Samsung's Android Auto competitor.

Samsung Galaxy S20 models are up to $300 off at Microsoft right now

Samsung Galaxy S20 models are up to $300 off at Microsoft right now

The S20 series costs far too much, regardless of how good they are. That probably sounds rich coming from someone who bought an unlocked S20 Ultra the day of the announcement, but it's true. These prices have undoubtedly had some impact on sales, too, with the S20 severely underperforming. It's a shame, because other than a slightly disappointing camera, they are, in my view, the best phones on the market right now. If the price is the only thing putting you off, though, now is an excellent time to grab one from Microsoft, as they have all three models available for up to $300 off.

More Samsung Galaxy flagships are already getting May's security update

More Samsung Galaxy flagships are already getting May's security update

As a long-term Samsung user, I've witnessed first-hand the Hollywood-style comeback Samsung has made in terms of how its phones get updates. Gone are the days of waiting almost a year for significant version changes, or being several months behind on security patches. Not only have Samsung devices been receiving updates faster than ever before, in some cases, Samsung has even beaten Google to the punch. It's now done so again, with Samsung starting its rollout of May's security patch for the S20 series.

Zoom photo comparison: Galaxy S20 Ultra vs. Pixel 4

Zoom photo comparison: Galaxy S20 Ultra vs. Pixel 4

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is Samsung's top-of-the-line smartphone in 2020, and Samsung claims that it offers the best camera experience the company's ever cooked up for a Galaxy smartphone. The most interesting element of its five-camera array is no doubt the periscope tech powering the new "Space Zoom" feature. You've probably seen a few 100x zoom shots of pretty questionable quality (like the ones in our initial camera samples), but what about at lower zoom levels? We've pitted the Galaxy S20 Ultra against the Pixel 4 to see how their zoom capabilities compare.
