For everyone else, Samsung offers its S series. In a nod to the start of the 2020s, the South Korean company showed off the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra at an event in San Francisco, skipping directly to the S20 from its previous S10 series.

The S20 phones are designed to take high-quality pictures in dark...
