Galaxy S20 vs S20+ vs S20 Ultra: What’s the difference?

Samsung’s Galaxy S line for 2020 appears to have undergone a significant reshuffle, apart from the fact that its name now matches the year. Taking cues from the iPhone 11 series, the base model no longer has a separate, visibly lower-end ‘e’ branding, but is simply called the Galaxy S20, nor is it a slouch anymore.

These high-FPS games are ready for the Galaxy S20's 120Hz screen

The Samsung Galaxy S20 is the first mainstream Android phone to feature an (optional) 120Hz display refresh rate mode, following the Asus ROG Phone II and its fellow gaming devices on the heels.

The Galaxy Z Flip feels like a regular smartphone—and that's exactly why it's amazing

Foldable phones have their detractors, but as they continue to evolve, it's quickly becoming clear they're maturing in both concept and execution. Enter the Galaxy Z Flip, the first phone I feel confident in saying feels like a regular smartphone. There's no amazing use case it will enable, no killer software feature, and the specifications aren't even cutting-edge in 2020.
