Hello All,

I planned to buy a Galaxy S20 FE and due to the fact that the Fly App is not working properly on all phones, i do like to ask
if someone already has any expierence with the S20 FE ?
Also interesting would be, which version of the S20 FE  you use. (4G, 5G, 128GB, 256GB)

I just gave my wife an S20 FE 4g for Christmas. If she will let me, I can try it with the Fly app and the MA2. Cross your fingers ;-)

Hello there MySky. Thank you for reaching out and for these information you have given. Since the said mobile device ( Samsung Galaxy S20 FE ) that you want to use on your DJI Mavic Air 2 and on the DJI Fly application is not listed as a recommended mobile device for the said DJI Drone. I hope that you can get the best recommendation from our fellow DJI co pilots who have tried using the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE when flying there DJI Mavic Air 2. Just a reminder that DJI recommended using a recommended mobile device when operating the DJI Mavic Air 2 for compatibility on both the said DJI Drone and the DJI Fly application. Thank you and fly safe always.

If you compare the technical characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE with the Samsung Galaxy S20, you will see that they are equal to the level of processor, speeds and operating system. I can't be 100% sure, but I believe it works without problems.

You are right, except it has 2GB less memory.
If i compare the S20 with the S20+ it is also nearly equal, but a lot of people reported issues on the S20+ and the Fly App, which usally should not happen.

AFAIK there was problem with Exynos processor compatibility, so the 5G Snapdragon version should be safer choice...

I remember this dicscussion as i was buying my S7 with a Exynos 8890 processor which is working btw. without any issues with the Fly App, while others reported issues.
Samsung is selling the same models with different processor types, depending on the area in the world.
In Asia and Europe they are selling the models with an Exynox processor, while they are selling the same model in other areas, like in the us, with the Sapdragon processor independent of 4G or 5G.

Maybe that is the issue, that some users are having issues with the Fly App and some not, even with the same phone model.

The strange thing is that they are currently in Europe selling the S20 FE 4G version with the Exynox and the 5G version with the snapdragon. Maybe this is caused by the pandemic issues.

Maybe some users owning a S20 FE can report, if they faced any issues with the Snapdragon or Exynox.

After doing a global deep dive search, i found a comment in the Fly App section from early 2020 from someone from the US and using a mavic mini.
He wrote that he had issues with the Galaxy S20 FE 5G.
The more i am searching the more i am coming to the conclusion, that the issues are more related to each specific phone model and not the processor type.

OK I just got through testing the S20 FE 4G 128GB and I had no issues at all while using the Mini 2. I was recording 4k, caching to phone, had the exposure warning on and the histogram on. Everything worked perfectly for a 10 minute flight. I was using 1.2.1 because it is not on the Play store yet and I didn't bother yet to side load the newer one. But the old orientation feature looked perfect.

Many thanks for your efford and the good news.
This is the model i planned to buy.
I am also still using 1.2.1.
But it should be no issue if the 1.2.2 will be available on the Play Store some day.

It is because Snapdragon has 5G modem integrated so it is different from older S lines - 5G is Snapdragon and 4G is Exynos (no 5G modem).
On the other hand incompatibility issues of Samsung phones have happened in the spring last year, should be solved now.

Hmm, in Germany / Europe they are currently selling the S20 5G and the S20+ 5G with an Exynox processor.
This is really confusing.

It is not that complicated, Exynos just needs external 5G modem (aditional part inside the phone). For the FE they made this setup Exynos 4G/Snapdragon 5G (or it was presented like this by Samsung AFAIK).
But it is confusing, I agree.

Thanks for the clarification. I was never caring about mobile phone HW  since i bought my S7 4G.
And i was never expecting that i have to deep dive into the mobile phone HW just because of a simple app like the Fly App.
But it is like it is and now i know what i have to take into account.

OK I have a dji mini 2 with 1.4.2 fly app and since my samsung A7 tablet won't record in any thing but 1080p I'm looking to invest in an upgrade that works , s20, s20fe , s20 + ,s20 ultra, s21, s21+, s21 ultra are my choices but which one actually works with the latest version of the dji fly app 1.4.2 or higher if need be. For the record I don't want any apples

I may not understand your statement. But the phone or tablet does not record the video, the drone does and the hi-res video is stored on the drone. And as far as I know, the cached video sent to the device is never over 1080p.
