Samsung Galaxy S20 FE versus Pixel 4a camera comparison: closer than you’d expect


The new Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is getting a lot of attention these days due to its incredible price while keeping a lot of the high-end features offered by the original Samsung Galaxy S20. The only real downside to the phone’s spec sheet is that Samsung’s swapped out a few of the cameras on the phone for inferior sensors.

So… how does the new budget-friendly(er) Galaxy S20 SE stack up when compared to the Pixel 4a, a $350 smartphone that delivers flagship-tier photos?

This Pixel 4a versus Samsung Galaxy S20 FFE camera comparison will give you an idea of what you can expect from each of these smartphones in a variety of different lighting conditions. When it comes to camera hardware, the Galaxy S20 FE has the clear advantage with its three sensors on the back and high-resolution selfie camera, but the pixel 4a has the advantage when it comes to computational photography that seems to nail the shot practically every single time, especially when it comes to selfies.
