The iPhone 12 is getting unveiled this week. But you can also get Samsung's more fully featured Galaxy S20 at a much lower cost as part of a Prime Day deal on this flagship phone.

Normally $999, the Galaxy S20 is $749 on Amazon right now for Prime Day. That's a savings of $250 off the phone's regular asking price, and it's at the lower end of the Galaxy S20 deals we've seen online.

The Galaxy S20 features a Snapdragon 865 system-on-chip, triple rear cameras, and a 120Hz display. Normally $999, you can save $250 on Prime Day, making this a more compelling option against the cheaper Galaxy S20 FE.

Based on the rumors, the Galaxy S20 should give you more phone for your money. The Galaxy S20 offers a larger 6.2-inch display than the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini, and its telephoto lens is capable of taking higher-resolution photos. The iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 lack an optical zoom.

Another advantage for the Galaxy S20 is the 120 Hz refresh rate on its display, which offers smooth scrolling and animation.
