Design

The vanilla version of the Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup provides the most elegant and minimalistic design since it features the smallest camera bump on the rear side. Further, the vanilla S20 is also a more compact device than Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra, since it features a smaller display. But it looks like Galaxy S20+ has a slightly higher screen-to-body ratio than both Galaxy S20 and S20 Ultra. Further, its camera module is not much bigger than the vanilla S20. In each case, you get a waterproof phone with both the front and back sides protected by Gorilla Glass 6, so an outstanding build quality.

Display

The displays of Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra come with the same flagship-level specifications. They are all Dynamic AMOLED 2X panels with HDR10+, a Quad HD+ resolution, and a refresh rate up to 120 Hz (you can enable the 120 Hz refresh rate only if you opt for the Full HD+ resolution, otherwise you have to stick to 60 Hz. What really changes between these handsets is the display diagonal: Galaxy S20 has a compact 6.2-inch display, Galaxy S20+ has a 6.7-inch screen and Galaxy S20 Ultra has a wide 6.9-inch display. Bigger displays are better for productivity and multimedia lovers, while smaller ones allow easy one-handed use and transportability.

Hardware/Software

The whole Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup is fueled by either a Snapdragon 865 or an Exynos 990 chipset depending on the market, paired with 12 GB of RAM in every configuration (except for the Galaxy S20 Ultra which comes in a higher-end configuration with 16 GB of RAM). So you get essentially the same performance. And all of these devices have 5G variants. What changes is the internal storage: for the vanilla S20 you only have the 128 GB option, while for the S20 Plus and the S20 Ultra you get up to 512 GB of internal storage. All the devices come with UFS 3.0 storage expandable with a micro SD. They pack Android 10 out of the box, customized by One UI 2.

Camera

The best camera phone of the trio (on the paper it is even the best camera phone of the whole market, currently) is the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Unlike its cheaper siblings, it supports up to 100x zoom and it comes with the main sensor boasting a 108 MP resolution. The second place goes to Galaxy S20+ which differs from the vanilla S20 for an additional TOF 3D camera.

Battery

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is the most amazing even when it comes to the battery life, thanks to a big 5000 mAh battery. Right after we got the S20 Plus with a 4500 mAh battery.

Price

Samsung Galaxy S20 starts from €999/$999 (5G), S20+ costs €1,099/$1,199 (5G) in its base variant, and Galaxy S20 Ultra (5G) has a starting price of €1,349/$1,399. Galaxy S20 Ultra is obviously the winner, but if you do not need the best cameras and a 4500 mAh battery is sufficient for you, S20+ is enough. Galaxy S20 has a compact display and not everyone likes this. Further, it has a way smaller 4000 mAh battery. If you do not care about those two compromises, then the Galaxy S20 remains a good deal which will allow you saving some money.
