In terms of its battery life, it boasts a 4,000mAh battery. If you are looking for a way to preserve the battery life of S20, it won’t hurt to settle with the 60Hz refresh rate.

Additionally, the S20 has a perfectly capable camera.

Finally, the S20 comes with 5G, specifically the sub-6 5G. However, the 5G is still very hard to find. With this, consumers are warned to avoid purchasing this phone if your only reason is to have the 5G coverage. But, if you are someone who doesn’t change your phone annually, then the 5G feature won’t be a problem. After a couple of years, it will likely be made available in your city.
