Samsung Galaxy S20 Smartphones: Everything You Need To Know (Page 5)

Battery & Charging

Samsung has increased every single part of the Galaxy S20/S20+/S20 Ultra over the previous-gen Galaxy S10 family of smartphones, and that includes the battery and charging support. We have some larger batteries on offer, and much faster fast-charging tech that will get you up and running and ready to run out the door faster than ever before.

We're looking at 4000/4500/5000mAh batteries inside of the Galaxy S20/S20+/S20 Ultra, respectively. You're going to need much bigger batteries to drive those larger displays, higher 120Hz refresh rates, the latest games, 8K video shooting abilities, and 5G connectivity. All of these things will annihilate your battery faster than ever before.

This is why Samsung also provides faster fast-charging tech inside of the new Galaxy S20 series, with the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ both supporting 25W charging. The flagship Galaxy S20 Ultra supports 45W fast charging, which is as good as the flagship Galaxy Note 10+ which supports 45W wired fast charging.

All three of Samsung's new Galaxy S20 smartphones also support 15W wireless charging. Samsung won't be shipping a 45W charger in the box for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which I really don't like -- I personally own the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G smartphone and it too didn't come with the fast 45W charger in the box and it sucks. 25W charging is great (you'll get that in the box) but why sell a totally new flagship smartphone without the fastest charger out of the box?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
