Galaxy S8 vs Galaxy S20 5G


Swappasaurus says...

Upgrading from a Samsung Galaxy S8 to a Galaxy S20 5G would mean improvements in almost every aspect of the phone. The Galaxy S8 was released in 2017, and the Galaxy S20 5G arrived in 2020. This three-year gap means you will get a better camera setup, a newer processor, more RAM, a better battery, and 5G connectivity. The Galaxy S20 5G supports sub6 5G. Other perks include going from the Snapdragon 835 to Snapgradon 865, from 4GB of RAM to 12GB of RAM, and a 3000 mAh battery to a 4000 mAh battery with 25W fast wired charging. The Galaxy S20 5G camera setup includes a 12MP wide, 12MP ultrawide, and 64MP telephoto camera on the back with a 10MP selfie camera on the front.
