Comparing the Galaxy S20 against the S10 series

There's no denying the power of the Galaxy S20 family, but this isn't the first time Samsung's made powerful phones. Just last year, the company wowed us with the S10 lineup.

With that in mind, it's worth comparing the S20 against its older sibling to see where Samsung improved, stayed the same, and faltered year-over-year.

Looking at the S20 and S10, there are improvements in the obvious areas where you'd expect them. The S20 has a newer processor from Qualcomm, more RAM, upgraded cameras, and a bigger battery.

Even with that being the case, there are a couple of areas in which the S10 actually has the upper-hand. You can get up to 512GB of internal storage on the S10, whereas the S20 is limited to just 128GB. The S10 also benefits from having a 3.5mm headphone jack, something you will not find on the newer S20.

Finally, let's take a look at how the S20+ and S10+ stack up against one another.

Once again, we see something similar when looking at the S20+ against the S10+. This time around, however, one of the S10+'s advantages is its second front facing camera. It's a depth sensor that allows for better portrait shots, and it's something Samsung omitted from the S20+

You'll obviously get a better experience and specs with the newer phones, but it is impressive to see how well last year's flagships hold up when compared side-by-side.
