Samsung has been very persistent in providing different smartphone models on different price points. This doesn’t only provide a wide variety of choices but it also being able to cater the consumer with less amount of budget.
The Samsung Galaxy A20 was quietly launched in the Philippine market with a price of P9,990. Its specifications are very similar to the Galaxy M20 but knowing that it was 1K more affordable, let’s see what else the Galaxy A20 can offer.
The Samsung Galaxy A20 shares the same design with the latest Galaxy A-series. It has a “Glastic” body which means that it is mostly made of plastic but looks like glass. The premium touch is still there and it feels so slim thanks to its rounded edges.
The display of the Galaxy A20 is very promising! Even though it is only at 720p in resolution, the Super AMOLED screen takes it to the next level. The colors are very vibrant, the sharpness of details are there, and it can be used under direct sunlight.
The Galaxy A20 might not be the best performer you can find on it price point but we are still satisfied on how it can handle the games that we are playing like Mobile Legends and PUBG, and Asphalt 9. The Exynos 7885 is an old processor and you are only getting a 32GB of internal storage / 3GB RAM for its price.
As for the biometrics and security features, the Face Unlock is quite fast but the Fingerprint Scanner takes some time specially when the display was turned off.
We are happy to see an ultra-wide angle lens compared to a depth sensor on most dual-cam smartphones on this price point. This makes the Samsung Galaxy A20 more versatile to use. It can capture great images on daylight thus using the ultra-wide angle lens makes the image a little bit darker but still, the outputs are acceptable.
During night, the main rear camera can still capture good images with visible noises but what’s good is that it doesn’t blow out light sources. You can still use the secondary ultra-wide angle lens but it will just give you grainy and smoothened outputs.
The 8MP front camera is doing its job in providing acceptable selfies in good lighting conditions. It also has a wide-angle toggle that can capture more space using the single selfie camera. In low-light, it has a screen flash that can provide you light compensation.

This device has an amazing battery life. Its 4,000mAh battery can last a whole day of above average usage. It has a 15W fast charger that can fill up the juice of the device for around 2 hours and 15 minutes from 10-100%.
As a conclusion, the best features that we like about the Galaxy A20 are the display, the battery life, and the very versatile rear cameras. It ageing processor is not the best you can get on this price point and you can also have a 64GB of internal storage with other brands. The Galaxy A20 has an outstanding display for its price point and we think it is the best feature it can offer. Even though it is only 720p, the Super AMOLED technology takes our viewing experience to the next level.
