Going from the Samsung Galaxy S8 to the Galaxy S20 Plus 5G means going from the regular-sized model to the plus-sized model. In the case of these two phones, that means going from a 5.8-inch display to a 6.7-inch AMOLED QUAD HD+ display with a resolution of 3200 x 1440. Upgrading to the Galaxy S20 Plus 5G also brings several other improvements such as getting a Snapdragon 865 processor, 12GB of RAM, up to 512GB of internal storage, and a 4500 mAh battery with fast charging, as well as sub6 and mmWave 5G connectivity. The Galaxy S20 Plus 5G also brings an improved camera setup.
