This is a Galaxy A20 review and I’ve put together all the essential points in this article about this phone.
The real reason to write a review about the Samsung Galaxy A20 is that its price point.
Samsung Galaxy A20 price in India starts from Rs. 11,490 and $249.99 for the US.
Samsung made some improvements in its design and if you compare it with M20 this phone looks very nice.
Lets start with the Design.
There is attention to detail and you can see the sim tray which goes with the color of the phone.
- The back panel is plastic, and if you don’t want any scratches on it then you need to put a case on it. Sim tray comes with a triple-slot that means you can put two sim cards and a microSD card.
- The light sensor is missing on this device but there is support for Widevine L1.
- Earpiece is loud but needs some improvements.
- The fingerprint scanner is very slow and the same goes with the face unlock.
Samsung Galaxy A20 has a 6.4 inch super AMOLED display which is a great thing to have on a smartphone. But there is a downside to it as well, the display only supports the 720p resolution.
Super AMOLED display with a 1080p resolution would have been a better choice.
Still, the 720p panel doesn’t disappoint you and the display looks sharp.
The display looks bright even in the bright sunlight. Samsung’s very own display is very good at viewing angles, color accuracy, saturation.

There is a dual-camera setup on its back, 13MP + 5MP(Ultrawide lens). The 5MP ultrawide lens lacks detail when you zoom into the photo.
Dynamic range is good and the low light shots are also good. The low-light images look a little noisy but the photos come out bright enough.
The camera misses the edges during the portrait shots.
Selfie camera performs better in daylight conditions, and the portrait also comes out well from the selfie camera.
There is no support for the EIS and 4K recording but the videos look fine, don’t expect anything special.
The camera performance is below average, but it’s fine for the price point.
Samsung Galaxy A20 comes with its own processor which is Exynos 7884.
With this processor, the A20 performs ok in all conditions and there are problems with the software optimizations.
There are issues with the RAM management and due to that, you can encounter so many lags.
The animations get delayed due to poor software optimization. Samsung A20 takes time to load as well as to install the apps.
You get so many amazing features on top of One UI, like night mode.
The One UI comes with little to no bloatware and during the setup, you get prompted with a message whether you want to install other apps or no.
If you like to play games on your phone then this is not the right phone for you.
You can not play games like PUBG and COD on this phone.
Exynos 7884 Performance
This phone comes with a 4000 mAh battery which is the only upside of this phone.
There is a Type-C port as well and 15W fast charge support on this device.
The 720p display takes up very little battery on this device and that is why this phone lasts for two days.
- Even with the bigger battery, the phone feels lighter to use.
- You can use two sim cards and memory card at a time.
- Battery performance is great and it can last for two days.
- Due to the poor software optimization the overall UI is laggy.
- The camera is good for outdoor photos and there is no EIS for the stabilization.
- You can not play demanding games like PUBG or COD on this phone.
No, it is not a good phone but if you want a phone for normal usage then this might be a good option for you.
Apart from the battery backup, which lasts for almost two days, there is nothing special about this phone.
Samsung Galaxy A20 is good for media consumption and social media.
Redmi Note 7 is the phone you should look after if you want a better alternative for Samsung A20.
This is Galaxy A20 review and it is a good phone for the elderly people or someone who want a phone for the regular use.
You can gift it to someone if you want and if you’re a power user or a gamer then it is not for you.
