Samsung's Galaxy S20 doesn't officially launch until tomorrow, March 6, but a lot of people have been getting their pre-orders ahead of time and been able to play around with the phone quite a bit.

The S20 is a darn good phone, but looking through the AC forums, a lot of our members don't have the best first impressions. In fact, some of them are already talking about wanting to return the phone.

Thinking that I'll return it and if it improves over the course of time repurchase it but right now I...


Mines going back. I have a Note 10+ and there is no compelling reason to switch over. The camera is very disappointing and not because it's bad. It's a good camera but It's typical Samsung processing with no real improvements. Samsung decided to spend time on gimmicky space zoom instead of double down on their camera software and leaping over pixel/iphone. The 120hz screen is nice but I...
