Some Samsung Galaxy S20 FE users complain that their screens have touch-input issues
Samsung has launched the Galaxy S20 FE as a possible answer to devices such as the OnePlus Nord and Pixel 5 that eat up the premium mid-range bandwidth at present. It may be a powerful contender in this space, as it packs the same Snapdragon 865-powered 5G option and a 120 hertz (Hz) refresh rate as its more premium siblings into a chassis with new colorways (albeit in a plastic rear panel).
However, it starts at US$699 (now that its introductory price of $599 has expired; or €633 in Europe). Therefore, user complaints that its well-priced FHD+ 120Hz screen has defects may disappoint some Samsung aficionados. These buyers have taken to Reddit and the official support community website to report issues such as laggy or jittery scrolling, keyboard failures and poor input-responses in their S20 FEs.
There seem to be a handful of replies claiming similar problems for each one of these posts online. In addition, the media outlet SamMobile has also asserted that these screen glitches are present in 1 of its 2 test S20 FE units. Samsung has yet to respond publicly to this new problem with its latest high-end phone, and it remains to be ascertained whether a new software update can fix them in all cases.
