Display

1.pixel density

405ppi

529ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

1080 x 2400px

1440 x 2960px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.

6.has an IPS screen
βœ–Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
βœ–Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
Gorilla Glass is one of the most popular brands of chemically strengthened glass, manufactured by Corning. Several versions have been developed, the newer ones being more durable and providing better damage resistance.
8.has a touch screen
βœ”Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
βœ”Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.has built-in optical image stabilization
βœ”Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
βœ”Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
4.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 60fps

2160 x 60fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
5.wide aperture (main camera)

f/1.8 & f/2.2 & f/2

f/2.4 & f/1.5

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
6.Has a dual-tone LED flash
βœ–Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
βœ–Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
7.has a BSI sensor
βœ”Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
