Galaxy S8 Plus vs Galaxy S20 5G


Upgrading from a Galaxy S8 Plus to a Galaxy S20 5G means going from a phone released in 2017 to a phone released in 2020. Essentially, this means you would be skipping two generations in the Galaxy S lineup, and that will equate to big changes. The performance boost comes courtesy of going from a Snapdragon 835 processor with up to 6GB of RAM to a Snapdragon 865 processor with up to 12GB of RAM. Other perks of the Galaxy S20 5G include sub6 5G network connectivity, a 6.2-inch AMOLED QUAD HD+ display, and a 10MP selfie camera. The Galaxy S20 5G also has a 4000 mAh battery with 25W fast charging.
