Samsung Galaxy M20 Review
The 3-Minute Samsung Galaxy M20 Review
Features & Design: 4/5 ● Performance: 3/5 ● Value: 4/5 ● Sound Quality 4/5
Samsung upped the game on their M series and the mid-tier phone market. A snappier Exynos and superior battery life are key features of the M20.
The device has a decent 3GB/32GB base model. This increases the 2GB/16GB that limited the capability of the M10. The selfie cam also has more defining megapixels. The charging is also fast.
For a phone that is just the right size, the light (186g) 156.4x74.5x8.8mm body has a glass front, plastic back, and sides. The screen is 6.3” PLS TFT with Inline Plane Switching (IPS). It also comes with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
The memory is 3GB/32GB or 4GB/64GB with a dedicated MicroSD slot for files like music booming from the down-firing loudspeaker.
The rear camera unit has a primary camera that is 13MP, 1/3.1", 1.12µm; 31mm, f/1.9, PDAF and a secondary camera with 5MP, 1/6", 1.12µm; 12mm ultra-wide, f/2.2, fixed focus; LED flash; 1080p@30 video recording. The front camera is a modest 8MP f/2.0; 1080p@30fps video recording.
With dual SIM capability, LTE, WiFi b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C 2.0, the 5,000mAH battery shows Samsung’s intent to really please the customer.
The Infinity V display is sheer class for its grade. The ultra-wide camera feature will engage youth. We know ultra-wide cameras are rare on a budget, the M20 will win hearts with this.
The longer-lasting battery (5,000mAH) and fast-charge facility adds to the M20’s overall appeal, giving more value to an impressive Exynos chipset base.
Many users have reported performance and stability bugs since it was introduced, especially after updates. Samsung has since launched two minor software updates to fix the issues encountered. However, each software update only exposes more holes in M20’s performance.
Is it for you?
To be fair, the Galaxy M20 addresses the bulk of issues with the M10 – there is a fingerprint reader, a USB-C port and fast charging feature and improved appearance. If you can afford it, it’s certainly an easier recommendation than the M10.
Against rival offerings, it offers weaker performance, longer battery life, newer OS, and so forth, for less money. Yet, it is a balanced option that delivers in most key areas and is recommended for anyone looking to experience Samsung Galaxy.
What we like
The Samsung Galaxy M20 is affordable, considering its features. We like the M20 having a USB-C port, giving it real bragging rights among its rivals squarely. The device is well put together, and we have not found any creaks or squeaks – one small positive for its plastic body.
What we don’t like
The Samsung Galaxy M20 has an all-plastic construction. This neither looks nor feels premium at all. While more durable than glass, the plastic is more prone to scratching.
The fingerprint reader could be better placed much lower to allow anyone with short fingers easily use it.
Should you buy it?
We definitely recommend buying the Samsung Galaxy M20 if you want a decent device that is quite functional for most regular purposes. The cameras, battery, and performance are reasons to do so.
