Very pleased with this device. Impressive design, speed, and the camera is awesome. The single take option is spot on. Recordings are truly amazing. I decided to purchase through Best Buy due to being cheaper and a better overall deal than going through Verizon. I personally didn't want the big S20 Plus or bigger S20 Ultra. The S20 is perfect.
I'm coming from an S8. I didn't have any issues with the phone after three years, but dropped it and it wasn't worth replacing the screen vs finally upgrading. While slightly taller, this phone is very similar in size and use to that phone. The processor is blazing fast and it can handle anything I throw at it. Smart Switch by Samsung made transferring everything over to this phone incredibly easy. Samsung's UI is incredibly flexible and allows a lot of customization.
The screen on this thing is beautiful and I like that they toned down the useless curved side screens. The centered hole punch on the front is great and much better than the S10.
I also am in love with the 120hz refresh rate. I have always dropped my resolution down to 1080 anyway and with Samsung's incredible Amoled displays, you won't notice the difference in resolution. However, you will absolutely notice the 120hz refresh rate. After using it, you will never want a phone without it.
The camera has been great. Honestly, most flagship phones have gotten so good that only the tech obsessed will notice the minor benefits and differences. This thing just works without doing anything to the settings. It takes great pictures in virtually every scenario, including night time.
Regarding all the complaints, let's address those. First, I hate Verizon Wireless and all the bloatware and quirky things they CONSTANTLY do. However, their service in my area is superior so I like many use them. While it is disappointing that EVERY other carrier was able to get 12GB RAM and a microsd, Verizon claims it was to incorporate their supposedly better 5G. Well, in general, that's a stupid reason, and based on Verizon's track record, one that I don't believe at all. It is more likely that it is a cost saving measure. However, these phones are selling for $500 to $700 lately and that makes the 8GB of RAM much more tolerable. You have all the tech you need from the bigger sibling at a fraction of the price in a more pocketable form factor, which is important to me (I prefer smaller phones). You get a top of the line flagship screen, camera, and processor. And unlike phones in the "mid tier" price range, this thing comes with 8GB instead of 4GB. I honestly wish the 5G wasn't a factor because it barely exists anywhere and won't be something I pay extra to take advantage of. But for the regular user, you won't notice the lack of RAM. The memory expansion is a little disappointing, but the 128GB of storage that it comes with in base model is plenty for most.
In general, this is a fantastic phone that is selling for a great price. Yes, Verizon sucks, but the phone is still great and only the hyper sensitive techies will care at all about the concessions. You most likely won't notice any of the trade-offs in day to day use.
It's a great phone. I had the mid range model a51 and returned it because it just wasn't cutting it. I figured, since I use my phone hours and hours a day, a good phone is worth the price, and the s20 is definitely worth the price. However I just wish it had a couple of things like the notification LED light for missed calls or text messages. The s9 and earlier models all had it. Why can't this one just have it? It must be really cheap for them to add it! I find myself constantly checking my phone if I'm expecting a call or text from someone. And I like to have my phone on silent, so the LED light is critical. Also, the finger print sensor is on the screen as opposed to the back. It's more convinient but makes phone screens impossible to use.
Writing about what I like would take far too long, so it's just easier to say what I don't like and assume everything else about the phone to be good, otherwise I'd complain about it.
I assume Verizon had Samsung cut corners with their version of the Galaxy S20 to have the "Ultra Wideband" capabilities. For now, all it is just lots of fluff. With 5G not even available everywhere, it will be hard to determine right now whether it's going to be worth it over the "regular" 5G capable phones. Bestbuy did a bum job listing this phone for pre-order several weeks ago, toting it with "expandable" memory. When I got the phone, I was livid there was no microsd expansion. I wasn't as mad with the lesser RAM, but that's another issue. I returned this dumbed down version and got the Galaxy S20+. While I rather not have a bigger phone, lacking the microsd card expansion is a major letdown. As of 6/12/20 when I'm writing this review, Bestbuy hasn't fully fixed the whole spec sheet for this phone. Still says "Expandable memory up to 1000 gigabytes". Fix it Bestbuy.
I had a Moto Z that I liked but the battery was pretty much gone after 2 1/2 years. I went to Consumer Reports and checked out the Motorola and the Samsung S20. The Samsung was at the top of the list and Motorola in the middle because of durability. So I chose the Samsung. The battery seems to be great so far. The usability factor is not as good as the Moto Z was. I've changed out the calendar and the alarm clock app so far for the google versions. I don't really care for how you have to access your voicemails either. My wife had her Samsung S7 for over 4 years, so I am looking forward to not buying another phone for at least that same amount of time.
The phone works fine. It's a bummer about the lack of expandable storage and slightly lower RAM compared to the non-UW version. The screen is bright and the battery is decent. 5G isn't really a factor yet. The latest version of Samsung UI and Android have some nice options to configure it the way I want it. I got an after-market tempered glass screen protector with a special zone for the fingerprint reader, but it doesn't work with the protector on. The hole punch camera in front is not very noticeable. The cameras are great. I like the 120Hz screen option.
I had an S9, went to the 11 pro and came back to android with the S20.
I would say 4.5 stars but you cannot do the half. The camera takes good quality shots in lots if different lighting conditions, it can run multiple apps without issues, and the screen resolution is definitely adequate for my needs.
The battery is usually adequate, however I have run low on days of not much use and have no idea why and sitting at night drops it from 100% to 90-92%. The 11 pro only dropped 2% usually. Having the power and volume buttons on the samw side can make it difficult to screen shot. Not sure why the move there. It's annoying for sure.
Happy with my switch and I would do it again.

A:AnswerThe UW stands for "Ultra Wideband" It is the specific mmwave technology that Verizon uses for 5G. Verizon had to get Samsung to create a specific S20 model for their 5G technology. The previously released S20 was only compatible with other carriers "low-band" 5G technology. Once Verizon gets their low band up and running, the S20 5G UW will be compatable with it as well.
A:AnswerThe Verizon S20 has their own UW version. It does not include a slot for a microSD card (unlike the other carriers). It also has reduced ram compared to the other telephone carrier versions of the S20.
A:AnswerSorry Bedridden, this phone does not have a stylus nor a pencil. If you buy this unlocked, you should be able to use this on Consumer Cellular, but I'm not sure. I would recommend you either wait for someone else to conform/ deny this, or speak with Consumer Cellular directly.
