Best alternatives to the Samsung Galaxy S20 line

The new Samsung Galaxy S20 series may appeal to many – it supports 5G, the new Ultra Camera system is built in, screens with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, larger batteries than before, and much more. But no smartphone is perfect, and not everyone has the same tastes in this area. If you were disappointed with the new products from Samsung, we present you the best alternatives to the Samsung Galaxy S20 on the market.

Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10 or S10 Plus

Rumors about this went before, turned out to be true – the Galaxy S20 line does not have a headphone jack. If it's important to you, then the Galaxy S10 series is the perfect choice.

In addition, after the announcement of the S20 family, Samsung reduced the price of the Galaxy S10 series by 10,000 rubles. This means that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus now costs about 48,000 rubles, the Galaxy S10-41,000 dollars, and the Galaxy S10e-35,000 rubles, which in itself is very good.

With the Galaxy S10 line, you get solid features: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, a large amount of RAM, excellent OLED displays and the presence of microSD card slots. The series was recently updated to Android 10 with One UI 2.0, so the software is similar to the S20.All of these phones support 4G, and the Galaxy S10 5G is still too expensive to be a profitable alternative.

The topic of price always arises when it comes to a phone worth about 80,000 rubles. We will not discuss whether the smartphones of the Galaxy S20 line are worth their money, but, of course, there are flagships with a more optimal price. OnePlus phones have always offered a good combination of performance and cost, so the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro models are what could be a good alternative to the S20.Both phones look quite competitive. They offer 90 Hz refresh rate screens, ultra-fast charging, superbly polished software with frequent updates. The 7T Pro is also different in design – its pop-up selfie camera is impressive. Both have a Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC chipset and large RAM, which allows for multitasking.

The cost of the OnePlus 7T now is about 35,000 rubles, and the OnePlus 7T Pro - 48,000 rubles.

However, OnePlus phones have their own disadvantages. Their cameras aren't as good as Samsung's, and they lack wireless charging and water resistance. But if we discard these shortcomings, this series is one of the best alternatives to the Samsung Galaxy S20.

Samsung Galaxy S phones have always had the maximum number of different " bells and whistles". But if you are ready to choose a simpler flagship, pay attention to the Google Pixel 4 XL.

The Model 4 XL offers perhaps the best and most easy-to-use camera among other smartphones. It should be noted that the camera system is not as versatile as that of the S20, so wide-angle shooting is better managed by Samsung devices. However, the phone from Google offers a fantastic night shooting mode, which makes it much easier to get high-quality photos in poor lighting conditions.

Google is also one of those manufacturers that release new Android updates for their devices on a monthly basis. The Pixel 4 XL, of course, will be one of the first devices to get Android 11 when the latest version of the OS is released later this year. S20 users will most likely have to wait a few months before the next Android will appear on their devices.

The Galaxy S20 series has many advantages, but sound is not one of them. LG is one of the few Android smartphone companies that seems to take the topic of sound seriously, and this is immediately clear when you look at the LG G8X model.First, the LG G8X has a headphone jack. In addition, LG has integrated a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (DAC) with a 3D DTS: X sound system into its flagship to deliver improved audio quality. The phone also offers user-configurable sound presets, so you'll be able to customize the sound of your smartphone the way you like it.

The device is equipped with stereo speakers with loud two-channel sound. Bluetooth 5 with aptX is also available.

But the advantages of the model are not only in audio. The G8X also offers a great display, solid stuffing, and the ability to attach a second, additional screen.

Features of the LG G8X:Screen: 6.4 inches, 2340 x 1080Processor: SD 855RAM: 4 / 6 GB Built-in memory: 64 / 128 GB Main Camera: 12 / 13 Mpfrontal camera: 32 MpAccumulator: 4000 mAh Phone: Android 10iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro

< /p>iPhone 11 is more affordable than its Pro counterpart and is probably capable of becoming the best option for many. It costs from 52,000 rubles, which is 30,000 rubles less than the lower-level Galaxy S20, while it has most of the features that the Pro model, which belongs to a higher class, has. It has a built-in dual camera system that can take high-quality pictures at night, an A13 Bionic processor, and a battery that can work for a long time without recharging.The iPhone 11 Pro also offers long battery life and a high-quality AMOLED screen. Its cameras are close to the best, even compared to the Google Pixel 4.

It is clear that considering the iPhone 11 or 11 Pro as an alternative is only possible if you like iOS or you want to change the platform.
