Released Fall 2020 to rave reviews and huge consumer demand, the Galaxy S20 FE is clearly no longer one of the best Samsung phones money can buy as they were replaced on that list earlier this year by the more powerful but otherwise very similar S21 FE.
with said Galaxy S21 FE model normally available for arguably outrageous $700 and rarely marked over $100, hardcore fans of this Samsung’s dying breed of handsets can still be tempted by the S20 FE oldie… at the right price.
Unfortunately, the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer continues to charge as much as $600 and more through its official US website, while Amazon is currently listing the factory-unlocked Galaxy S20 FE 5G for $100 less.
But then there’s Amazon’s Woot website, where an “international” S20 FE unit can be purchased for a limited time for $319.99. While these are technically new and unused devices they are not unopened as well which is why they have a reduced 30 day warranty compared to most other items sold by Woot, not to mention Amazon itself or Samsung.
Another very important thing to keep in mind is that these GSM unlocked phones on sale here for $320 will be a pop in your choice of cloud navy, cloud red and cloud white colors. not work on any US 5G network.
Last but not least on the list of flaws that could keep you from scoring an otherwise very attractive deal, the “international” Galaxy S20 FE comes with a Samsung-made Exynos 990 processor instead of a faster Snapdragon 865.
That said, this naughty boy is without a doubt still considerably more powerful than today’s best budget phones, while packing a generous 256 gigabytes of data internally, support microSD storage expansion, have a silky smooth 120Hz 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display, and easily offer all-day battery life with a large 4,500mAh cell under its plastic-backed design. and metal hood.
You can’t really put a price on those undeniably great hardware specs, and even if you could, it certainly wouldn’t be $319.99, especially if you also add Android 12 software and a guaranteed future Android 13 update to the equation. adds.
