Samsung Galaxy S20 (2020) vs Moto Z4 (2019)

Analysis:

The Samsung Galaxy S20 (2020) is one of the very best products at its price point and should be considered by anyone willing to spend around $660 on a Smartphone.

The Moto Z4 (2019), on the other hand, is mediocre at its $899 asking price and should be avoided by the majority of people. If you're interested in some alternatives at its price, we suggest looking at some better options in the $950 range.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 (2020) impressed reviewers from a large number of trusted sources that conduct reliable hands-on testing, including Android Central, PCWorld, Windows Central, Notebookcheck.net, Expert Reviews, Techradar, and Android Authority. It performed great in their respective roundups - it was named "Best Alternative Visible Phone" by Android Central, "Best overall Android phone" by PCWorld, and "Best with 5G" by Windows Central. Earning that much praise from such reliable sources is a good sign that the product is worth the money.

Moving on to the Moto Z4 (2019): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like PhoneArena, Techradar, CNET, PCmag, The Verge, Android Central, and Android Authority, enough for them to include them on those lists.

To get a better idea of how they fare when compared directly to each other, we analyzed review scores of sources that tested both. PhoneArena, Techradar, Android Central, The Verge, and PCmag, for example, preferred the Samsung Galaxy S20 (2020), while PhoneArena rated both of them the same.

We also took a look at which sources had the best things to say about them. We learned that the Samsung Galaxy S20 (2020) got reviewed the highest by What Hi-Fi? - it gave it a rating of 10, while the Moto Z4 (2019) most impressed reviewers at PhoneArena, which gave it a score of 9.

Lastly, we averaged out all of their review ratings and observed that the Samsung Galaxy S20 (2020), with its 8.7 average, performed considerably better than most Smartphones - the mean score for the product category being 7.5 out of 10 - while the Moto Z4 (2019) managed an average of 6.9.

There's one caveat here - it might not be entirely justifiable to do a direct Samsung Galaxy S20 (2020) vs. Moto Z4 (2019) review average comparison since they aren't priced the same and more expensive products tend to get higher review scores from some sources.
