SyrupCast

This week Patrick O'Rourke and Brad Bennett are joined by MobileSyrup staff writers Jon Lamont and Dean Daley. The Syrup Squad discusses the Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra just prior to publishing their reviews of the S series flagships.

Jon is reviewing the Galaxy S20, so he'll be defending the smallest of the three phones. Dean is working on the Galaxy S20+ review, and Pat has his hands on the Galaxy S20 Ultra.

Opinions come out as the reviewers talk about the phone they like the most and what features they think Samsung nailed this time around.
