Compact phones such are becoming rare nowadays, so this handset will definitely appeal to people looking for a device that’s easier to handle. The A20e impresses on first impressions, with an intuitive user experience enhanced by solid speakers and great cameras for the price.

Source: Sam Mobile English
We are sure you have, by now, caught on to the gist of this review. The Galaxy A20e is a cheap device, and it is not hard to spot all the concessions Samsung made in order to keep it affordable. By itself, that is just fine, and if you do not care about performance or display quality, this compact phone should serve you well. Battery life is fine, plus it charges quickly. Daylight camera performance does not disappoint.

Model: The Samsung Galaxy A20e boasts a 5.8-inch AMOLED display with a screen that is responsive to multi-touch. It has a satisfying resolution of 720 x 1,560 as its main display and a color depth of 16 M to showcase a variety of vivid colors. The Samsung Galaxy A20e comes equipped with a dual camera by pairing a 13 MP (F1.9) and a 5 MP ultra-wide Camera in one handy device. The dual camera effectively captures what the human eye sees, attributing its accuracy for sporting a 123 degree wide angle, suited for panoramic and scenic landscape shoots. The camera also responsively switches to Wide Shot mode on an automatic basis in order to capture everything in sight. This improvisation guarantees pictures that are taken no matter in the day or night to come out crisp and clear. Furthermore, the Galaxy A20e model has an 8 MP front camera with a clever Selfie focus which can blend the background and focus upon the person’s distinguished facial features.

The Samsung Galaxy A20e houses a non-removable Li-Po 3000 mAh battery. It is claimed to be able to last all day and has 15 W Fast Charging capability to ensure the device to be sufficiently recharged while on the go. Lower settings and lesser background apps should effectively prolong the battery life and enable the Galaxy A20e to run even more smoothly. The Samsung Galaxy A20e comes with an optimal internal storage of 32 GB and can be further expanded by adding a microSD card. Sadly, the smartphone itself only houses a relatively low RAM of 3 GB, indicating that the device is susceptible to imminent lag and input delay if loaded with too many downloaded apps or multimedia. On the bright side, the Samsung Galaxy A20e has a surprising dual SIM capability, thus allowing two separate SIM cards to be slotted into the device, which can be used sparingly or at the same time. Dual SIM capability is inherently a lacking and overlooked feature by some of the other competing smartphone companies in the industry. This is a much appreciated feature in smartphones nowadays as carrying more than one phone has proven to have a chip effect in terms of every day productivity. Dual SIM is much valued by business people who prioritize practicality rather than novelty, and it is also a feature much sought after by academics these days.

Impressively, the Samsung Galaxy A20e is loaded with plenty of intuitive sensors. The sensors of this model are capable of measuring physical quantities and transmit them to the application processor for further adaptation. The accelerometer measures tilt and motion, whereas the proximity sensor detects the user’s face and turns on the display screen accordingly. The phone also has a quirky rear fingerprint scanner as an extra yet simple security measure without the need to fumble over digits or traced pattern on the screen. The Samsung Galaxy A20e comes in four colors to complement its sleek and slim design. It is available in classic black, white, and blue. A stunning coral color as one of the available options, however, highlights the Samsung Galaxy A20e as a much considered option for the eccentric and bold.
