I think many of our readers remember the middle of the zero years, when phones were not so smart as today, but could boast a truly outstanding appearance. Not to say that the design that was chosen by the producers, have always been successful, but one way or another, look machines of those years is definitely more interesting than the current. However, if you think about it, it becomes clear that to play on the design of the device, which has the entire front panel covers the screen, and half of the rear camera lens, is quite difficult. But for Samsung, nothing is impossible.
Is it worth buying Galaxy S20. What they say about it owners
Samsung has presented a secure version of the flagship Galaxy S20 with additional PostScript Tactical Edition. The company promises that this smartphone, unlike the original, can be used not only in peacetime but also in wartime. Despite the fact that internally this is the same Galaxy S20 with a 6.2-inch display, Snapdragon processor 865 and 12 GB of RAM, apparently it is quite difficult to recognize the original model. Korean designers have Packed it in durable and housing, which called Jaggernaut, designed for the most severe loads.

Why you need a smartphone? Well, Samsung says that it will be useful to the military, which in the conditions of operations do not have the ability to stay connected, because smartphones are too fragile and unreliable. However, Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition is not only a secure means of communication, but also an auxiliary tool. The device has a special mode which dims the display to a user wearing night vision goggles, no damage to retina, and also offers the ability to unlock the face in the horizontal mode.

However, the military is often important not only functionality, but also the possibility that the functionality to disable it, preferably completely. Is why Samsung added in the Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition another mode of complete invisibility, which allows you to disable all radio frequency broadcast, to the location of the military it was impossible to determine when using pelingator or triangulation with special operations. Well, in time of peace and the teachings of this mode just to save battery life.
Why I feel sorry for money for Galaxy S20 and not sorry on iPhone
Given the specificity of the model, it is logical to assume that Samsung will not sell the smartphone through open channels. It will be available only on special order in the third quarter of 2020. But order Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition can army, private military companies, services, private security, courier service and many other agencies with which such a device can really come in handy. Another question – will they do it? After all, from the point of view of protection this device is clearly inferior governmental equipment.

I’m not too well versed in military technology to make any conclusions about the suitability of Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition for different kinds of operations. However, it seems to me that Samsung deliberately lost, making a smartphone based on the original S20, and even with a touch screen. Well, think for yourself. The case is that the Koreans defended, but the display on which it is possible to apply pressure or break, dropping it flat, is still a very vulnerable place. Moreover, the risk of failure is quite high, given the size of the screen windage design of the smartphone.
Why I'd rather buy the Galaxy S10 instead of the Galaxy S20
About software protection I’m not talking. Obviously, Android is not the operating system that must be installed on the device, which is of tactical value. Usually, they are usually the most simple from the point of view of a functional device, but it is the most reliable platform that should neither hang nor too be updated often, nor even be subjected to hacking or some external influence. So do not be surprised if the Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition not buy one.
