Samsung smartphones enjoys a tremendous brand loyalty in India. Pixabay

The fight in the India premium smartphone segment has intensified and Samsung which enjoys a tremendous brand loyalty in this price range in India has now brought in Galaxy S20 series — Galaxy S20 Ultra, the S20+ and the S20 with powerful cameras — to the country.


According to the South Korean tech giant, it has completely reimagined the camera system in the new Galaxy S20 series to entice users to upgrade from previous gen Galaxy phones.

We reviewed the Galaxy S20+ (8GB+128GB storage variant) launched for Rs 73,999. Here’s how it fared.

The new device is pretty much like the flagship Galaxy S flagship device — usual big displays, small bezels and a glass sandwich design with a metal rail pressed between two sheets of glass.

Like previous generation Samsung flagships, the S20+ also has an impressive screen with ample RAM for smooth performance.

All the new Galaxy S20 models have a display panel refresh rate of 120Hz. And that does make a huge noticeable difference in user interface (UI) smoothness.

Notably, the 120Hz rate is only accessible at FullHD resolution.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ has a 6.7-inch display, which is quite a leap from its predecessor’s 6.4-inch display size.

The Galaxy S20+ misses out on the 108MP camera and 100X zoom feature that the pricier Ultra has. It, instead, has a time of flight (ToF) sensor, a 12MP primary camera, 64MP 3x telephoto lens, and a 12MP ultra wide camera. We especially liked the 3x hybrid optical and 30x digital zoom range.

The S20+ took excellent images in almost every lighting conditions. The images lost details in yellow lights though.

The camera has a wider hump, which makes it look more proportional. The S20+ can also capture 8K video like the Ultra which makes sense from a performance point of view.

The selfie camera brings in a nifty addition that detects more people outside its default cropped frame and automatically toggles into wide mode. The selfies looked a little over-processed though.

Also, the blur on the portrait mode looks more artificial than before.

The new ‘Single-Take’ mode essentially takes both an image and a video. It shoots a variety of shots over a 10-second span — photos, ultra-wides, portraits, hyperlapse video, regular video, and so on.

It let us clip 33MP photos from video, which was really handy.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ has the same 4,500mAh battery that the recently launched S10 Lite also houses. Battery depletion on S20+ was quick and strictly lasted a day on a single charge with heavy to moderate usage.

The device comes with Samsung’s own UI 2.0, on top of Android 10 OS.

Samsung is also working on a future update to improve the camera experience so be ready for more seamless experience with your photos.

Conclusion: The new Galaxy S20 series is Samsung’s big bet on a new camera system with premium internals and hardware. Like its predecessor, the new Galaxy S20+ is also an Android flagship that is here to stay and be remembered.

S20+ can easily be called one of the most impressive among 2020 Android flagships. (IANS)

When Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan became bankrupt in the late 1990s, Dhirubhai Ambani stepped forward to give him financial assistance. In his speech, Bachchan remembered that Dhirubhai had sent Anil Ambani to offer him financial assistance during the crisis, which he had respectfully declined. Lenders began knocking on his door, losses mounted, and his bank account dwindled to nothing. He said, "Dhirubhai's money might have gotten me out of the problem quickly. However, I respectfully declined his offer and gradually began to find work again, which let me pay off my debt."

Irrespective of the age of your child, it is vital for parents to offer that extra support and assistance following an unsettling event.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

Every child responds differently to disturbing events:
What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
