Pros of Samsung A20
Here are the reasons why you will want to buy the A20 from Samsung.
1.) Premium Design & Quality Build
Galaxy A20 shares a similar design with other Galaxy A-series smartphones in terms of feel, appearance, weight, and thickness – except for a few differences.
The device is made with a glossy 3D polycarbonate material, which looks premium and feels extremely solid on the hand.
However, since this device is made with a slippery polycarbonate back, it is best you buy an original case that fits the phone so as to prevent it from slipping out of your hand should in case they are wet.
Another strong point of Galaxy A20 is that each button and feature on the smartphone is carefully placed in order to make your mobile experience more convenient and enjoyable.
The front of the phone features a notch design called ‘the Infinity-V display’, 8MP front camera, as well as a call speaker.
At the righs side are the volume rocker and power button while the left side houses the Dual-SIM card slots and a strategically placed micro SD card slot.
Again, the top of the phone sports a noise-canceling microphone just as the bottom features the 3.5mm audio port, primary microphone, loudspeaker,as well as the modern USB Type-C port, which allows for faster file transfe than the conventional micro USBs.
Still on the placement of buttons and features. The dual 13MP and 5MP shooters with LED notification light are placed on the back of the device while the middle of the back side sports an oblong-shaped fingerprint scanner that allows you to unlock your smartphone while you’re holding it in your hand.

More importantly, it will please you to know that the Samsung A20 has rounded corners and sides, which makes it pretty comfortable to hold your device for longer period of times.
Design-wise, A20 is a good buy as it feels premium and durable. Depending on what you like, this smartphone is available in three different colors, which includes Black, Red and Deep blue – they all function similarly; color is the difference!
2.) Huge Display
The Samsung A20 comes with a 6.4-inch super AMOLED display, which is large and bright enough to make your viewing experience more enjoyable whether you are playing games, watching movies, or even streaming a live visual content.
However, the major drawback of this device is that it only has HD+ resolution and a relatively low 269-pixel density despite its huge display size and Super AMOLED panel. It would be better if the company had used something advanced.
Nevertheless, the device is still worth the money considering the fact that its HD+ resolution is somewhat better than what you find on most budget phones of its class.
Also, it has punchy colors, decent viewing angles, and slim bezels, all of which improves the overall viewing experience.
3.) Beautiful Camera
The Galaxy A20 is one of the end results of Samsung’s age-long camera refining process. The overall performance of the camera is outstanding except for a few flaws and rest assured you will enjoy value for your money.
To start with, this device sports a 13MP rear camera (F1.9) and a secondary 5MP wide-angle shooter (F2.2) alongside a 8 MP front camera (F/2.0).
The 13MP + 5MP back camera allows you to capture wonderful and memorable events which you can view any day any time on your large display device, while the 8 MP front camera is good for taking beautiful selfies, especially in good lighting.
Again, it will please you to know that Inside and outside photography taken with this smartphone are well balanced and the colors appear unperturbed on each picture.
This device is also considered a worthy option as it ensures balanced color on each photo unlike some devices that uses more than enough colors on their photography to make them appear better.
More importantly, the major drawback of A20’s camera is that it locks focus very quick when outdoors but slower when indoors. Also, you may notice some noise in your photography when capturing in low light conditions (the camera software is capable of churning out useable pictures though.
That being said, it is equally important to note that the camera on Galaxy A20 is not the best you can get on a Samsung device as there are some other options that deliver a solid photography experience, e.g. The Galaxy S9.
4.) Impressive Battery life
The importance of battery capacity in a smartphone can never be overemphasized since it determines how long your device will last before a re-charge would be required.
Thankfully, the Galaxy A20 comes with a powerful 4000mAh battery with fast charging support. With this battery, you will be able to perform various activities on your device for a full day or even beyond (depending on your level of usage).
That is, you will be able to watch videos, listen to your favorite songs, log on to the social media, read PDF files, play games – all for a very long hours.
It is equally important to let you know that the Samsung Galaxy A20 supports fast charging, which allows you to charge your device from 0 to 100% in less than 2 hours. This is indeed value for money!
5.) Smooth Performance & Swift Speed
Being a budget phone, the Samsung Galaxy A20 is equipped with an efficient Exynos 7885 processor and a 3GB of RAM to deliver a smooth and seamless mobile experience.
Although this processor is not as powerful as the advanced Exynos 7904 found in other flagship Samsung devices like the M20, M30, and A30 but it is enough to run some of the basic apps on your device without unnecessary lags or crashes.
It also switches between multiple apps in a quick and swift manner.
That being said, we recommend this phone for basic users since it works smoothly when loading less graphically-demanding apps and games.
If you are a heavy gamer or tech savvy, it is best you opt for other devices with more powerful processor and bigger RAM to further enjoy your mobile gaming or tech experience.
6.) Fair RAM and Storage Capacity
As earlier said, A20 sports a combination of 3GB RAM and a fair 32GB internal storage, which allows you to run multiple apps and store a large number of files and apps on your device.
Again, if the 32GB internal storage is not enough for you, you can easily upgrade it with an additional microSD storage to a whopping 512G, giving you a larger space for storing your important files, documents, apps, games, photos, and videos.
