With the Galaxy S20+, Samsung seems to be trying to offer an intermediate model between the iconic S20, the new flagship of the brand, and the S20 Ultra which is all about excess in terms of features and photos in particular.

The design is particularly successful on this Galaxy S20+, with a very elegant facade, with a very nice optimization of space and a discreet punch for the photo sensor on the front. Although it is very elongated, the smartphone sometimes needs to be taken with both hands, especially for the physical keys, despite Samsung's real efforts at the interface level to facilitate the user experience. The fingerprint reader is under the slab and is responsive. Two SIM ports are present, as well as an eSIM port, and the waterproofness is well and truly there.

As usual, Samsung has equipped its smartphone with a nice screen, and watching the slab of this Galaxy S20+ is a real pleasure. The different resolutions allow you to go up to a very thin and comfortable display, and the refresh rate contributes greatly to this as well. The respect of colours and their temperature is also present, as always at Samsung, and the infinite contrast is a must. Attention however with the reflections but the strong luminosity will counterbalance that without concern.

The jack port for the old headphones and earphones will probably not come back at Samsung and it is therefore not present here, but the absence of a USB-c adapter is still to be deplored. On the other hand, the sound produced by the speakers is quite satisfactory.

In terms of power, the Galaxy S20+ suffers from the choice of the Korean brand for the processor. While the smartphone has nothing to be ashamed of and in fact remains quite powerful, handling multitasking without a hitch, it remains a little behind the competition. This is all the more noticeable in games, where it is sometimes clearly at a disadvantage.

In pictures, it's less over the top than what we have on the Galaxy S20 Ultra and is identical to what the S20 offers. The result is therefore very satisfying for the main sensor, which with only 12 million pixels gives very nice shots, with the right amount of detail, a pleasant contrast and a rather natural rendering. The Galaxy S20+ is more difficult in a dark place and the shots are a bit too impacted by the smoothing to be fully convincing. As is often the case, the ultra wide angle sensor is quite average and lacks details here to convince, and this is even more annoying on pictures taken in a dark environment. For the zoom, it is a telephoto lens that officiates, with 64 million pixels and a focal length f/4.4, then crop and simulate a 3x zoom. The result gives the change in full light despite a certain lack of sharpness, but the rendering in poor light conditions is not fail to deteriorate, as is often the case with this type of lens. The self-portraits are rather successful, but it is obviously necessary to deactivate the beauty filters to keep a little naturalness. For video capture, it is better to forget the 8K in favor of the 4K, already very qualitative.

Battery life has never been Samsung's forte, but the manufacturer is doing well and you don't have to be very thrifty to enjoy the Galaxy S20+ for a whole day: if it shows signs of weakness, charging is very fast with the right charger.
