The RAM of the phone will be either 8GB or 12GB, depending on the variant which you are purchasing. It will come with an internal storage of 128GB. The battery will be 4000 mAh which is considerably good. It is rated IP68 water-resistant. There will be an optional 5G variant available as well. The phone will start from a range of $1,349.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+:

This is a variant which is a grade above the base model S20. It will come with a 6.7 inch OLED display. The resolution again will be Quad HD. There is no difference in the back and front cameras except that there will be an added ToF Feature on the back camera. Again, it will run on an Exynos 990 processor. The RAM variant will depend on you whether you purchase the 8GB or 12GB variant. The internal storage will come in two options of 128GB and 512GB. There will be an increased battery size of 4500 mAh. The phone will be IP68 water resistant naturally. A 5G model is again an option that you have to take whether you want to purchase that one or not. It will start at $1,499.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra:

This is the best and most powerful variant in the series of S20. It will come with a 6.9 inch OLED display. The resolution will be the same – Quad HD. But there is a huge difference in the back cameras. The back cameras will be 108MP+48MP+12MP+ToF. If you are wondering about the front camera, it will have a 40 MP camera. The phone will run on Exynos 990 processor only. There will be two RAM variants available for you to choose from – 12GB and 16GB. The internal storage again will come in two options – 128GB and 512GB. If you are thinking about the battery, the battery is again upgraded to 5000 mAh, which means your device will run for a long period than usual. The phone is IP68 water-resistant. It will be 5G only and it will start from a price of $1,999.

All of the three smartphones have some great features and that is why they are priced this high. It is hard to determine if paying almost $1,999 for a smartphone is worth it or not, but one thing is sure that the quality you will get will be high.

Factors that Impact Your Phone’s Temperature:

Although your phone may get warm, it has built-in safeguards to alert you and protect itself if it exceeds normal operating temperatures. Here are some outside factors that can affect your phone’s temperature:

Reasons your smartphone warms up:

Using your phone outside of normal operating conditions, which are ambient temperatures between 32 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit.

Placing your phone near a heat source, leaving it in a parked car on a hot day, or continued use in direct sunlight.

Using multiple apps for an extended period of time, or using processor-intensive apps such as gaming or GPS tracking.

Initial setup and data transfer from a previous device.

System updates.


When you use features or apps that require more power or keep your phone on the charger for an extended amount of time, it may temporarily heat up. Here are some tips on what to do if it does heat up, and what you can do to avoid overheating.


Solutions for when your phone warms up:

Disconnect the phone charger and close any running apps until the phone cools down.

Try using a different USB cable. A defective cable can cause overheating.

Remove metal or magnetic material between the phone and the wireless charger.

Keep the phone’s software updated.

Turn off Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth when you’re not using them.

Delete unused or unnecessary files and apps.

Turn down the screen’s brightness.

Do not use the phone for a while. If the phone is still overheated or hot, you should contact Samsung.

When Your Phone Attempts to Cool Itself Down:

If the phone powers down due to overheating, let it cool off completely before you begin using it again.

Your phone is designed to regulate its operating temperature. If it gets too hot, you should remove your phone from any of the conditions listed above and let it cool down. In this situation, the phone may power off, close apps, temporarily stop charging, and/or dim the display. Your phone will also display notifications like the ones below that let you know your phone needs to cool down.

Note: Wording may vary by model.
