- Samsung’s Galaxy S20 lineup has seen disappointing sales so far, partly a result of the global coronavirus pandemic that’s forced millions of people to quarantine at home and businesses to temporarily close.
- It’s the kind of situation that’s not exactly conducive to smartphone buying — and, indeed, the industry recently saw its largest monthly decline in smartphone shipments in history.

We’re already on record for having pegged the Galaxy S20 as one of the best Android handsets to come out during the first half of this year, and that’s thanks to everything from its great design to big hardware upgrades including a new camera system and 5G connectivity. And while at launch the cheapest S20 variant would have set you back $999, Samsung has stuck to its past precedence and dropped the price for the S20 lineup as the company tends to do for its Galaxy S phones soon after launch.
Unfortunately, even with retailers like Best Buy and Amazon offering a $200 price cut, all of the above still hasn’t seemed to juice Galaxy S20 sales to a point where they can be regarded as anything more than a disappointment. According to analysts, the Galaxy S20 has only managed to reach 60% of the sales achieved by the Galaxy S10 lineup over the same timeframe last year.
