The Galaxy S20 must fix these three big S10 flaws

The Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra need to fix three big flaws present in the Galaxy S10 before launch. It's not easy to pick out major flaws in one of the best-selling smartphone model lines in the history of the smartphone, but even Samsung has the potential to build on the success of their most recent model set in the "S" lineup. Where the S10, S10e, and S10+ failed, the Galaxy S20 can succeed - here's how.

One of those is Apple's AirDrop functionality which makes it dead simple to share files between iOS devices.

Now that place has shut down and its timing right after news of the company's dismal 2019 earnings only adds fodder to rumors of its own inevitable demise.
