How come the video still comparison between the S20 and S20+ shows such a different quality, the S20+ being way better when it's actually the same hardware?

My 2 years old nova 3i (power saving) still beats the s20+(60 hz) in battery life.

Potential buyers with special interest in the performance of the cameras on this phone should understand the actual optical zoom is 1.08 so the focal length of the actual lens is basically the same as the non-zoom camera. This is unlike say the S10 5G which the actual lens of the camera is 2X. However Samsung makes up for this by using a 64MP sensor. This basically results in as good or better zoom shots up to about 5X zoom than a phone with a tele-camera with a 2X or 3X optical zoom lens but only a 12MP or 16MP sensor. But to say the phone uses digital zoom above 3X is incorrect, it is ALWAYS using digital zoom on the telephone camera.

The reason why it performs well can be explained by considering number of sensor pixels used decreases by the zoom factor squared when using digital zoom. So, the lowest zoom of the tele lens on the S20+ at 3X is essentially a 7MP sensor. 3 squared is 9. 64MP divided by 9 is 7.1MP. (You may be wondering, if you are always cropping the sensor than what's the point? The 64MP sensor is primarily to provide 8K video recording capability.) Compared to say the S10 5G which has a 2X optical zoom and 12MP sensor. So a 3X zoom for the S10 5G is a 1.5X digital zoom of the 2X optical. 1.5 squared = 2.25. 12MP/2.25 = 5.3MP. So you can see how the S20+ can keep up with other cameras with 2X or 3X optical zoom but only 12MP sensors. It's notable though that with 2X zoom, a camera with a 12MP sensor and a 2X optical zoom has a higher resolution image than the S20+ at 2X zoom since the S20+ doesn't have an optical zoom lens.

What's more interesting is the 64MP sensor on the S20+ has a 0.8um pixel pitch which means the sensor is roughly 9,500 pixels by 7,150. So at 3X zoom the sensor output is going to be digitally cropped to around 3,160 x 2,380. However no matter what zoom resolution you use, Samsung outputs a 4032x3024 size image, basically "faking" the resolution for all images taken at anything over 1X zoom. The file size goes down as the zoom goes up even though the image resolution stays at 4032x3024 because the JPEG compression algorithm basically can see it's a fake resolution (essentially a lower resolution source image interpolated up to a higher resolution.)

I'm not sure why manufacturers do this except for only from a customer satisfaction perspective as people would be complaining why their 10X zoom images are only 950 x 715 pixels. Yes, S20+ users, that is roughly the true resolution of a 10X zoom image from your phone. But consider on a 12MP sensor with 1X optical lens, that true cropped resolution is closer to 400x300!

The bottom line is the S20+ Tele Camera is basically equivalent in resolution to a phone with a 12MP camera with a 2.5X optical zoom because it's not actually an optical zoom lens. So Samsung's advertising it as a 3X "hybrid optic zoom" isn't a total lie, but 2.5x would be closer to accurate as far as the equivalent of an optical zoom on a 12MP sensor. To get the best images on this camera you just want to use one of the 3 cameras without manually zooming in. If you do zoom in on the tele camera, try to not go above 5X.

Rohit Nagarkoti , 29 Oct 2020Samsung you have done cheated me, I Purchased your cellphon... moreidk why but now even resale value of the phone will be less. you should've bought it like after 3 months

I plan to buy s20+ Exynos. Can anyone confirm if is that good to buy? I specially need phone for camera. Used OnePlus 8 Pro but its worst camera in every situation its different color produced. Results not consistent.
Also Exynos heating on s20+ I heard fixed at certain level.
Please confirm so i can buy else I have to go with iPhone 11.

Samsung you have done cheated me, I Purchased your cellphone in the month of july. That time your mobile was 78k approximate. Now price is 50k in just 4 months ??? Why ??

This is high end phone, very costly then battery is just 4500 mAh ?? Why ??

M30 has 5000 mAh battery, cost is just 16k.
You have looted me. In my family everyone uses Samsung.
S8, A50, A30, S20+......was thinking of purchasing new cellphone for my mom. Now you have lost the trust.

I will not use your mobile from next purchase. Will switch to iPhone. At least iPhone is much more secure.

Shame on you Samsung. Only camera is good. Rest is shit for 78k. My phone is under warranty. Do the replacement now. Otherwise I do negative branding of your S20 series.
