Galaxy S9 vs Galaxy S20 LTE

Swappasaurus says...

Upgrading from the Galaxy S9 to the Galaxy S20 LTE means you will be skipping a generation, the Galaxy S10. You can typically expect a performance boost when going from generation to generation, and skipping a generation means getting a boost you’ll likely appreciate. The Galaxy S20 LTE brings features such as 128GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 12GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 865 processor. The camera setup also takes a big step from the S9 to the S20 LTE. You will get a 10MP camera on the front with a three-camera setup on the back that includes a 12MP ultra-wide, 12MP wide-angle and 64MP telephoto. New camera features on the Galaxy S20 LTE include 8k video recording and a 100x space zoom.
