Samsung’s looking to turn things around with their new batch of budget phones. The Galaxy A20 has a good mix of features for not much money: the display looks great, the cameras perform well and the overall design of the phone make it look more expensive than it really is.

Samsung Galaxy A20 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Samsung Galaxy A20 is a capable entry-level smartphone overall. It has a large display with decent performance, large RAM, great cameras, long battery life, and it also comes with a USB Type-C port with fast charging technology. In the end, I don’t like its fingerprint and smudge magnet design and HD+ resolution. It also has a weird fingerprint unlocking when the display is turned off, but, if you don’t mind these cons, then you can opt for this phone.

71% Samsung Galaxy A20 Review
Source: Techniqued English
So how good is the Galaxy A20 priced Rs 12,500? The Galaxy A20 comes with a good sAMOLED display, One UI with Android 9.0, decent selfie experience and great battery life. But for a price of Rs 12,500, there are many worthy alternatives available offering Full HD+ resolution display, powerful processor and great cameras as well. So we feel, if you are looking for a phone in sub 13k price segment, you should be considering Realme U1, Zenfone Max pro M2 or even Redmi Note 7 which are better alternatives than the Galaxy A20.
