Now Let See My Samsung Galaxy A20 review – All In One

Build

 

Most of the Galaxy A series 2019 phones have a similar design. The Samsung Galaxy A20 follows the same path.

It has a plastic back that scratches easily. It comes with an AMOLED panel and the infinity V notch that houses the 8MP selfie camera.

A type C USB port, and a microphone jack. The device is a solid and beautiful one. Easy to operate because it is not heavy in the hand.

The build of the Galaxy A20 and the Galaxy A30 might seem to be the same but there is quite a difference. The Samsung Galaxy A30 has an Infinity-O display 

Display

The Samsung Galaxy A20 comes with an AMOLED screen. The AMOLED screen has a lot of contrasting white colors. It’s always nice to look at the screen.

Though it can’t be rated with the latest AMOLED screens in the market. The 720p resolution is another problem but I think given the price it is fair.

Software And Performance

The Samsung Galaxy A20 is powered by the Exynos 7884 processor. It comes with 3GB of ram and 32GB of storage. The memory can be expanded because there is a dedicated micro-sd card slot.

The device handles all the daily tasks like a pro without any lag. Casual games run smooth but games with high graphics don’t fair well.

On the other hand Samsungs, new OneUI is pleasing in the eye and well optimized. It allows for easy navigation while using the device. The fingerprint sensor is not the fastest as it takes extra seconds to wake up the screen.

Face unlock is fast and works well even in low light conditions but it is not recommended. It supports Dual 4g VoLTE.

Battery Life


The Samsung Galaxy A20 comes with a 4000mAh battery. It also comes with a 15W adaptive fast charger.

It takes less than one hour forty minutes (1Hrs40mins) from zero to a hundred.

Battery life is amazing. But I had to use some tricks to improve the battery life so it will last more than a single day. Even without any tricks battery should last a day after a single charge.

Fast charging, however, is the most important thing to me as I can quickly charge and expect a reasonable percentage of the battery within a few minutes.

The 4000mAh battery does a wonderful job and its on pair with the likes of Tecno and Infinix.

Camera

Putting price into consideration you will find out that the camera is very good.

It takes decent pictures in good lighting conditions. It has a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP wide-angle camera.

Live Focus always looks good outdoors and most times the camera surprises me with the quality of pictures it produces. It shoots videos at 1080p and stability is awesome.

The 8MP selfie camera also shoots amazing pictures well detailed enough.

 

Overall if you want to snap with the Samsung Galaxy A20 you should make sure the lightning condition is perfect then it will give you the best images you can imagine.

Here are some of the pictures snapped with the device 

 

Overall Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy A20 is a solid device and it barely has much competition within its price range.

The only thing is the camera quality but I feel Samsung did a nice job in terms of the aesthetics and user interface of the device.

The Samsung Galaxy A20 is every inch worth the price.
