Find about the Samsung Galaxy A20 camera, display, fingerprint, battery life, gaming, price, and more of its features & specs in this Samsung A20 review.
Up until last year Samsung, this constantly criticized for not having an answer to budget-oriented Chinese devices. However, 2019 seems to be here as the Korean Tech Giant has already come up with quite a lot of winners. Hoping to cleanse the same title is the Galaxy a20 a budget-oriented device that costs rupees 12,490 in India. So, does the Galaxy a 20 pack in enough to be considered a winner?
Samsung a20 build quality
This Samsung A20 review Let’s find out. Now from the time I have been holding the Samsung a20. I’ve always wanted to talk about the build quality. Yes. This is made from plastic. And if you still think that budget-oriented devices cut corners on the build quality think again. The phone is light yet is sturdy. I didn’t bend it like Jack from Cherry big wood, but still, it can definitely take a hit. There is no Hollow feel, you know, like you might see on budget phones. It’s not glasses like the one on its closest competitor the Redmi Note 7.
But it still holds its own ground. However, this material catches a lot of fingerprints, even the blue-colored a20. I reviewed is quite a magnet. It is also prone to scratches even when I kept the phone nowhere near keys or any hard objects. The back has developed a lot of scratches all the buttons rest on the right side of the phone. They are very tactile on the bottom line with the type C Port headphone jack and a speaker Grill the sound from this mono speaker is clear, but it’s not very loud.
Samsung a20 display quality
I’ll front you get at all 6.4-inch display bordering a small V-shaped notch on the top. This display is Super AMOLED panel and the bezels pronounced as well while all of this is impressive and everything. The thing that Samsung hasn’t included here is spatial resolution, but with the Super AMOLED panel that hasn’t really been an issue at all apart from the issue of searching for that perfect sharpness while watching videos or reading articles. This display is quite bright and colorful. The default wallpaper looks great and I haven’t yet change it weirdly.
Samsung a20 storage and performance
I know what you will use most of the customizations the software offers while the Galaxy M10 and M20 came with older Android Oreo out of the box the Samsung a20 runs on five with Samsung’s new One UI on the top. I recently reviewed the Galaxy is a10 and the a20 has almost the same software experience. It has that same light UI and those customizations for the users’ case of use although Samsung has a double-tap to wake.
Like I still think it has to include double-tap to lock. I know I’m nitpicking what’s nice is the hundred GB storage you get with OneDrive. Of course, the Microsoft apps cannot be uninstalled but I think I will take that for that extra cloud storage. The one you like. I said is light but still, the apps take a little time to open, and is it just me, or is crawling on the phone? Not smooth but the raw performance here is smooth the Samsung a20 has the Exynos 7884 for chipset inside.
this is the Mini version of the 785 that we saw on a few Samsung phones last year worth rupees 50000 and like its elder brother. This one is a very capable processor even gaming on it is not that bad. I played pubg to you on medium settings and there is only a couple of instances of lag on say a single time once a game did start with lacks here and there but once I got to the game there were one or two minor starters also while we’re talking about gaming too.
Like the a30 this device has a messenger issue with gaming. If you are playing something and you get a text message the whole thing just slows down except for these issues. There aren’t any the RAM management is good and I have had no issues running six or seven applications at the same time but still, for similar pricing, you get the Redmi Note 7 with Snapdragon 616 inside which is 1.5 times a better performer than the Galaxy a 20. So, if you are into performance, I won’t wait. To the conclusion, part to say this the Redmi note saving is better than the a20.
Samsung a20 battery performance
So, if you are into performance get the Redmi Note 7 the best part about this phone right here is the battery the a20 has a large 4000 Mah battery inside which has become a trademark on almost all Samsung phones at the very first. if Samsung a20 review I talked about the Samsung a20 sporting HD display and that couples will with the battery in my heavy use. I got a screen on time of around 6 hours and 30 minutes. So, how does that relate?
I liked the real-life usage and on a real day if you are a heavy user who doesn’t. A lot of things on their phone the battery should last you for an entire day. But if you are a moderate user who does not use their phone so much and does not play games constantly the battery will last you for a day and a half. So, in terms of battery life, Samsung has definitely got a better performance of a20 this battery takes around 1 hour and 40 minutes to go from zero to a hundred percent with its included 15-watt fast charger.
Samsung a20 security feature
for security purposes the Galaxy, a 20 has both fingerprint and facial unlock options. The fingerprint sensor is placed on the back of the phone and it is easily reachable with the screen lock the phone unlocks in around one second. However, the screed on the sensor can unlock the device in a snap. I have seen this issue on a couple of other devices as well. So, I think Samsung can improve on this via a software update for face unlock the uses its front-facing camera. The option works great but takes a bit of time the front-facing camera rests on the water top-notch of the front.
Samsung a20 cameras
This Samsung Galaxy A20 review. if we talk about the Selfies, well, they look great. That is if you don’t zoom in to them as the photos will lose a lot of details but still the overall colors are great and not overpowering if you are in a bright area indoors the Selfies are good too. But say the light isn’t that bright then this is what you get. The front camera is also capable of taking portraits selfies and secure are the results. It’s all the software that’s doing the work and it isn’t doing that work. Well, the blurring is Not on point. So, I stayed away from the life focus of the selfie camera.
Let’s talk about the rear cameras now like the M20 and a30, you get dual cameras, a 13-megapixel primary lens, and a 5-megapixel wide-angle lens, and the best use of the camera at least for me has been while capturing wild shots from the smallest of angles and to capture the scenery. Here are some samples the colors we get here are accurate when compared to the primary camera and talking about the primary camera. The first thing you will notice is that it lacks details.
The colors are great and everything, but it Max efficient details and if you take pictures that have bright colors, you will notice over-saturation Samsung and oversaturation go a long way and it’s no different this time to the images is also just average in terms of dynamic range, but I do like how the photos are brightened up a little bit making the whole thing pop like the front camera.
The rear camera also does software blur and just like the front camera the background blurred is not that good as the cutouts. Look at natural it the strands of the hair of the subject to the same goes for the portrait shot in indoor lighting. However, one thing that bugged me with this phone is that the light Focus mode has only worked on people anything else. It just shows up a tab with finding a face written on it during nighttime.
The photos have a lot of noise to them. You will also notice grades while daytime shorts have a warmer color tone to them the night shots have a colder tone and they are exposed if there is a source of light hitting on them.
The shots also like details just like during the daytime, but the saturation makes the photos pop if there are shades of colors on them and finally the videos this device shoots full HD videos at 30 FPS and those videos are a bit wobbly as they lack any kind of stabilization the colors and natural do the Samsung Galaxy.
Samsung a20 conclusion
Samsung a20 is a member of a long lineup of a series while this is a more budget-oriented device. It is good at what it does. Although Samsung has cut some corners for it. But still, it has a sturdy build a vibrant display. The battery life is great and the cameras for the price are decent. However, if you talk about performance and if you add some more money, you get the Redmi Note 7, which is a better performer than the a20.
So, if you are a performance metric user, then you can have a look at the Redmi Note 7. Otherwise, the Galaxy a 20 Handle, your day-to-day usage pretty easily.
