Does the new Samsung range support 5G?
The Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G support 5G connectivity. However, before purchasing it’s important to note that the Samsung Galaxy S20 does come in 5G and 4G variants, so be sure to get the right device for your needs.
Does the new Samsung handset have a headphone jack?
Samsung has not included the headphone jack in its new range. In order to listen to music or videos, you will need a pair of wireless headphones or a USB-C adapter.
Can I use the Samsung Galaxy S20 underwater?
While we wouldn’t recommend deep sea diving with your S20, the handset is water-resistant up to 1.5 metres, meaning you needn’t worry if you accidentally drop your phone in water.
What is the Galaxy S10 Lite?
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is a mid-range version of the flagship Galaxy S10. It offers a 6.7” full HD+ super AMOLED plus screen, with a hidden fingerprint scanner to maintain the uninterrupted display. It also boasts a pro-grade camera with 48MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide camera and macro camera.
Is the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite shatterproof?
Samsung doesn’t list the Galaxy S10 Lite as shatterproof, therefore we would always recommend a screen protector.
Is the S10 Lite the same as S10E?
No, they’re different handsets. The main difference is in the cameras, as the new S10 Lite features a triple-camera system, whereas the S10E has a dual-camera system. The other major difference comes in the charging capabilities as the S10 has super-fast charging.
Which handset is the best?
Of course, they’re all great handsets, but the best headset for you depends on what you’re looking for in terms of both spec and price. To help you decide, we’ve created handy comparison tools for the Galaxy S20 series, the Galaxy A series, and the Galaxy Lite series.
