Galaxy S8 vs Galaxy S20 LTE

Swappasaurus says...

The Galaxy S8 was originally released in 2017, and the Galaxy S20 LTE was released in 2020. Following this upgrade path means you would be skipping several generations of the Galaxy S lineup, and as a result, you would see a large boost in performance and features. The rear camera goes from a single 12MP lens to a triple camera array with a 12MP wide, 12MP ultrawide, and 64MP telephoto. You also get new features such as a 3x Hybrid Optical zoom, Bright Night, and 8k video recording at 24 frames per second. Other highlights include a 6.2-inch display, Snapdragon 865 processor, up to 128GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot with support for 1TB cards, and a 4000 mAh battery with 25W fast charging.
