When Samsung introduced the Galaxy S20 FE, many industry resources and experts praised the new product. The company was able to offer something really balanced in terms of characteristics in the flagship segment and they predict quite bright prospects for sales in the global market. But it seems that the smartphone is not perfect.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has a major touch screen problem
The first few Samsung Galaxy S20 FE buyers have been complaining about display problems. In particular, for some reason, it stops responding or reads input by mistake, and there is also a jittery scroll animation. The sensitivity of the sensor is not stable, but it takes time to realize that something is wrong with it. In some cases, users had to go into a forced reboot to fix the screen issues.
At the moment, it is difficult to say how common the problem is. But the number of negative reviews is constantly growing and there are those who have already managed to even replace the device. True, in the newly received devices, not everything is smooth. It seems that in an attempt to save money, Samsung went to install cheaper and lower-quality touch screens in the Galaxy S20 FE.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is the first “FE” handset, but more will come
After a wave of rumors and leaks, Samsung has finally revealed its brand new Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition). The smartphone is available in the 4G and 5G flavors depending on the market. The device was a nice surprise for those looking for a good Samsung flagship that is not more expensive than the trio of devices released in February. Interestingly enough, Samsung used the keynote to reveal that it’s planning to bring more Galaxy FE edition smartphones for its lineup in the future. In other words, users can expect a Galaxy S21 FE in the next year.
One can consider the new S20 FE as this year’s Lite edition of the Galaxy S20. However, having a “Lite” name on a device that has a 120Hz display and Snapdragon 865 seems to not be appropriate. After all, the Lite name can easily make it look like a less appealing smartphone. But this certainly isn’t the case of the S20 Fe as it brings powerful specifications to the table. Samsung can easily keep the Fan Edition suffix for future versions of its flagships, even the Galaxy Note 20 FE isn’t discarded. Especially when the vanilla Note 20 is far from being a hit in the market.
