    I feel the 20s are even selling worse than the 10s

    • +3 votes

      They are only selling 60% of what the 10 sold on release. Understandable though when you consider that it's not the biggest improvement over the previous model (unless you're paying $2k for the ultra) and the current lack of an economy.

    Please don't get tempted by Kogan's lower prices should you choose to compare other sites. Kogan's AU/NZ model is Vodafone New Zealand stock not covered by Samsung AU warranty.

      I bought a Note 4 from Kogan, it never picked up reception well compared to my wife's AU version and they refused to do anything about it.

    Exynos 990 is much worse than SnapDragon 865. I wouldn't pay $1000+ for this phone

      I'm using a S20+ right now, I can't compare it to a snap as I don't have one but it's the best device I've ever used.

      PCMark Work 2.0 does a fantastic job emulating real-world usage conditions. Unlike other synthetic tests that are algorithm-based, PCMark focuses on real-world scenarios. Let's break down the numbers, kicking off with the web browsing test. This particular test is targeted at the A55 cores, and we see that the Exynos 990-based S20 has a marginal lead over the SD865 version. The fact that the A55 cores on the Exynos 990 go up to 2.0GHz contributes to the slight advantage here, with the SD865's A55 cores going up to 1.8GHz.

      The video editing test uses OpenGL ES 2.0 and stresses factors like video playback. The scores are broadly identical across both variants of the S20, but it is interesting to see that the SD865 S20 fares worse in this test in 60Hz mode.

      The writing test stresses the system's performance as it measures how long it takes to open, edit, and save a document. It is a great indicator to day-to-day performance, and the SD865 variants of the S20 pull ahead of the Exynos verison.

      PCMark's photo editing test is particularly interesting because it measures how long it takes to open, edit, and save images. This test is designed to emulate how your phone performs when adding filters and beautify effects to your photos. Both chipsets perform at the same level, with the Exynos 990 eking out a lead over the SD865 versions of the S20. That said, the SD865 S20 in 60Hz mode posts the highest score of any of the S20 units.

      Finally, the data manipulation test measures how long it takes to parse data from different file formats, and the frame rate while interacting with dynamic charts. The SD865 takes an immediate lead here over the Exynos 990, but once again we see that the scores in 60Hz mode are lower than 120Hz.

      Overall, the Exynos 990 version of the Galaxy S20 fares very well, and it holds its own with the Snapdragon 865 in most scenarios. The key takeaway here is that Samsung seems to be throttling the chipset in 60Hz to deliver better battery life, as normally you would not see such a difference in scores from the same device.

    I'm predicting the price will drop further on or before June. I'd say around $800-$900.

    The education store has a better price. I got one last week, but I missed the promotions for buds and Samsung care.

    Absolutely pumping out the phone deals son

    Prices are dropping due to decline in sales. This just proves it…

    Everyone does realise that poor sales may have something to do with the fact that millions of people worldwide lost their job right?
    If you are trying to figure out how to keep the lights on and food on the table, the last thing you are probably fretting over is a new $1000+ phone right now…

    Wife has just smashed her S8.

    Looking at the standard S20 128gb.

    Is this price worth jumping on now? What price could we expect come tax time?

    • +2 votes

      I think the price is worth jumping on if you have an actual need right now.

      Last year there was an offer through Westpac where you could purchase the S10 for $876.85 in the EPP store as a Westpac customer. I am hoping they will do something like this again this year, maybe around May/June 2020.
