Filmmaker Tebogo Malope shares why the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is a win

The letters FE in the brand-new Galaxy S20 FE stand for Fan Edition. Samsung asked their fans what elements they loved the most about the Samsung S20, which was released earlier this year, and then used this information to create a more affordable phone that included these top features.

Renowned filmmaker Tebogo Malope – director of Africa’s first Netflix series and winner of several awards for his South African commercials and music videos – is also a fan (he even shot a music video with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra). Reflecting on his experience with Samsung, he says they clearly listened to the fans while developing their new phone.

“As a director, I always look at the camera first. The prograde AI-enabled cameras are a big plus. After all, these days, taking pictures or videos and sharing them is the best way to express yourself. The Galaxy S20 FE brings a pro-grade camera along with the 32MP selfie camera, including tetra-binning technology that lets you instantly capture a post-worthy picture.”

He elaborates on his favourite camera features: “With the large image sensors and multi-frame processing, you can take richer, more vibrant images, even in low light so you can simply snap and go. I loved the fact that you can stabilise motion in-shot while you record with night mode. It’s the multi-frame processing with AI frame integration that makes it possible.”

He says it may not be applicable while we’re all still social distancing, but when the crowds come back, the powerful 30X Space Zoom is going to be a win.  “It lets you capture a crowd from a distance and then zoom in on one area. From there, editing and sharing photos and video is a breeze. The fact that it has a 4500mAh battery that keeps going as you create your magic is another big bonus.”

In short: “This device is a star in the making!”
