How about a helpful price in the title, instead of all the unnecessary features?

So the reviews are pretty positive on this phone. What I dont like about it is the glass is Gorilla Glass 3. The latest versions are 6, but even 3 year old phones like the S8 had on GG5. It has improvements like the fingerprint scanner but has some bugs with the screen itself. Some phones get a weird flickering effect that can cause headaches. Its got a plastic back but still a metal frame. I was looking to buy it at 300 off, $400 from a major retailer if you sign up for a new plan under the premise if an "upgrade". My plan cost would go up per month and wouldnt pay for itself. They offered $150 off but that still doesnt feel right. I am waiting on this phone to drop another $100. If you need a new one this has a lot of favorite features on it but for a budget friendly phone I cant bite yet.

This was never meant to be a budget friendly phone.

If these things are like my s20 ultra I can't use them. I'm super sensitive to pwm. That might be part of the flickering people are experiencing. If it wasn't for that issue I'd probably go for since I got rid of the ultra. I don't know about the note 20 ultra.

Samsung has so many phones, it's like they try too hard.

For anyone who ordered this on Samsung.com, my S20 FE was delivered yesterday. I chatted their CS up and asked if they price matched. They said they did, so I showed them the Amazon listing. They refunded me $100; I got the confirmation email today. I got $320 for my Note 9 trade in, and 6% Cash Back from a site I can't mention. So in total, it cost me about $300 to get this phone.

Also for anyone on the fence regarding the screen sensitivity issues -- I got an update right out of the box and took it. Zero issues, 2 days in now. I've pinched to zoom on several photos, scrolled, typed, gamed, etc. Absolutely no issues on the latest update. The 120 Hz display is awesome, and I'm disappointed and surprised that Apple dropped it from the 12 series last minute.

God damnit. They will price match, but only up to 15 days.

Yes it was, hence the $600 price point upon release versus the $1000+ that is customary on their flagships.

Everything is relative, of course, depending on your definitions. You sure you're not thinking of the S20?

i've ordered this from samsung yesterday since i had a cracked screen s9 phone that was getting worse by the day. Samsung.com was the only place where i could it trade it in. Price matched with Bestbuy and got the phone for around 270$ after discounts, trade-in and cash back...

Will see if this is worth that money and if it has any touch issues as reported
