Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy M20

Samsung Galaxy M20 review: Power-packed performer disguised as budget phone
Source: Business Standard English
With the price starting at Rs 10,990, the Galaxy M20 is a budget smartphone that has capabilities to make a dent in the armour of other smartphones in the same segment. From sleek performance to exceptional on-battery time and capable dual rear camera, the phone has everything to be touted as power-packed performer.

The Samsung Galaxy M20, in its bid to compete strongly against the Chinese incumbents, implements a lot of firsts for a Samsung device — A new design, wide-angle cameras and a massive battery. But all that doesn't discount the fact that the Galaxy M20 is not for everyone. It's the right choice if you absolutely demand a wide-angle camera to play around with, but for everything else, be it performance or gaming, there are better devices available in the market. Read the full review to more about the Samsung Galaxy M20.

Samsung Galaxy M20 Review: Is it a Dawn of new Samsung era?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
With the Galaxy M20, Samsung has finally offered an interesting proposition for its loyal fanbase. The phone is loaded with a standard design, though the display is quite interesting. The performance as a daily driver is good, though it is not meant for some serious gaming. The phone offers smooth and highly-customisable user interface, though it is still loaded with bloatware. Camera performance is a mixed bag and hopefully, a software update can improve it. The battery life is really impressive, in our testing. Overall, if you are Samsung fanboy, who was earlier disappointed with the company’s product lineup, the Galaxy M20 might excite you.

70% Samsung Galaxy M20 review: At Rs 12,990, big on battery and performance
Source: The Indian Express English
Samsung Galaxy M20 offers good performance, big battery for its price, which is what you want on a device priced under Rs 13,000. The camera and display could have been better. Samsung’s Galaxy M20 will compete with devices like Redmi 6 Pro, Realme 2, Nokia 5.1 Plus, Honor 8C, which are in the same price bracket.

Samsung Galaxy M20 Review – Next big budget bestseller is here!
Source: Fone Arena English
Overall, the Galaxy M20 is a clear winner for Samsung at competitive starting price of Rs. 10,999. It has a good display with minimal bezels, huge battery, USB Type-C with fast charging, ultra-wide angle lens that you don’t find on any other phones in the range, and decent performance for the price. Average low-light camera performance and the plastic body are the things you have to compromise. As I had mentioned earlier, it is recommended to get a case. Samsung doesn’t promise when the phone will get Android Pie update since its flagships have started getting the update recently.

80% Samsung Galaxy M20 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Unlike some of its current competitors, Samsung has immense brand power. A lot of people might have chosen other options recently based on specifications and features, so having closed that gap, Samsung stands to regain a lot of the customers it has lost. Buying a Samsung phone doesn't feel like a gamble in the way that it might with less established brands. The Korean giant is capitalising on this in its Galaxy M-series marketing by underscoring its huge service network, spanning 1,650 service centres across over 6,000 talukas all over India.

Samsung Galaxy M20 review: Finally a credible threat to Xiaomi
Source: Android Authority English
The most obvious competition for the Galaxy M20 is, of course, the Redmi Note 6 Pro. While Xiaomi’s phone packs a bit more power under the hood, the M20’s larger display and bigger battery should make it a winner for most. Similarly, the phone is an obvious choice over the Honor 10 Lite, which we found to have rather middling performance.

80% Samsung Galaxy M20 Review: Here’s looking at you, (Redmi) Note
Source: Tech PP English
That said, we have to concede that while the M20 definitely emerges as an alternative to the likes of the Redmi Note 6 Pro, the RealMe 2 Pro, and the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, it does not really do enough to overwhelm them. We can see many people who prefer a “traditional” (and in some cases, non-Chinese) brand being attracted to the M20. But only time will tell whether it will win over those who have been charmed by the likes of Xiaomi. There is a new phone series in town and it certainly does more than enough to make both the competition and the consumer sit up and take notice. That’s always a good thing in our book.

The 5000 mAh battery takes about 150 minutes for a full charge; a 15 minutes charge will give you up to 3 hours talk time. And on a full charge you can easily get two days or more of battery life based on your usage.

75% Samsung Galaxy M20 review: Great display, superb battery life make for a good start
Source: India Today English
The Galaxy M series is Samsung's bid to start something fresh, something different from what the Galaxy On and Galaxy J series offered in the past. And the Galaxy M20 looks like a step in the right direction. The phone offers a terrific Infinity-V waterdrop display and a long battery life, two features that are pretty important in this segment. The ultra wide-angle camera also offers something unique in this segment, and it is worth considering the M20 if these are the features you're looking for.

Galaxy M20 hands-on: Meet Samsung’s most competitive budget phone
Source: Sam Mobile English
Overall, the Galaxy M20 is Samsung’s best attempt yet at making a budget phone that isn’t dwarfed by the Chinese competition in terms of the specs and features on offer. The problem arises when you consider the fact that the M20 will only be sold online. Online buyers tend to be more knowledgeable, so despite the compelling price tag, the M20 may not sell as much as it would have if it were sold offline. Well, unless it manages to impress us and other reviewers, and you will need to wait a few days before you can find out if that’s the case.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
