Success Metrics


Being the cheapest device from the S20 series (around 600 EURO), the S20 FE 5G is classed as a high tier in the ViserMark list. Like most devices of its price range, the S20 FE is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 offering 5G connectivity.

The FE comes with a 4500mAh battery and as the other member of S20 family, it comes with a 25W fast charge, a 15W wireless fast charge, and a 4.5W reverse charge option.

Testing Results

Through the ViserMark test protocol, the FE battery lasted about 50 hours with a display refreshing rate of 120 Hz and over 53 hours with 60Hz obtaining a 221 ViserMark score. Compared with the average ViserMark score of high tier devices “173.83” the FE offers a higher autonomy. Users can gain about 1.5 hours per day of autonomy by using the device with a lower display refreshing rate.

Test Graphics


The battery autonomy of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is around 2 days based on the ViserMark testing protocol, compared with other devices from the same hierarchy the autonomy is slightly higher considering its 4500 mAh battery.
