So I got the S20FE 3 days ago, and I'm already having issues...
To start, the display is gorgeous. It is fast and sleek which is great, however, it has a tendancy to click on links that I haven't touched. No matter where they are on the screen it often takes me to different sites. This might be an issue with my unit, but I've seen that others have had this issue too.
Following along is the finger print scanner. It is dreadful. Going from a closed screen, it rarely registers that I'm trying g to use it and when it does, my finger print isn't registered half of the time. Not helpful.
Another big issue for me is using my charger. I have a 6ft usb-c charging lead that I used on my old phone perfectly fine. With the S20, it will not allow me to use any third party cable of plug. I've tried with other cables and other plugs in different combinations but will not charge with anything other than what came out of the box. At this moment in time, it has charged 15% in an hour.
Lastly, possibly biggest issue is its lack of compatibility with Google Photos. Coming from a Huawei phone, Google Photos was a saving grace when keeping my housands of photos safe. But it does not work with this new phone. Don't get me wrong, I can download the app,open it and use it fully, but it doesn't register in any other app. I was trying to send old photos through Facebook messenger but it doesn't show as an option to use the many photos from googled Photos, only the 3 that are on my Samsung Gallery (which is a terrible app).
Overall, the phone is beautiful, it runs fast and hasan amazing display,but these issues are seriously making consider sending it back and using my old phone again. If anyone has any advice on how to fix any of this, please do help me, I'm at an end here.

Hi. I just bought mine and had shocking issues with the fingerprint scanner. Tried all the fixes. In the end I
did an android update and now it works like a mad thing.
