Samsung Galaxy M20

Samsung Galaxy M20 was launched in January 2019 & runs on Android 8.1 OS. The Smartphone is available in two color options i.e. Charcoal Black, Ocean Blue & has a built in fingerprint sensor as the primary security feature, along with the host of connectivity options in terms of 3G, 4G, GPS, Wifi Bluetooth capabilities.


Samsung is using a regular TFT LCD panel (not IPS LCD) on the Galaxy M20, but we didn’t find it lacking in terms of quality. Colors are vibrant and pop nicely.

Samsung still doesn’t provide an option to tweak display colors for its LCD display phones, but the default color calibration is fairly good. If you prefer warmer tones, you can also make use of the blue-light filter.

The display of the Galaxy M20 is a 6.3-inch FHD+ (2340 x 1080p) PLS TFT panel. PLS (Plane Line Switching) is Samsung’s proprietary display design which is similar to IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology.


On the rear, the Galaxy M20 has a 13MP primary camera combined with a 5MP secondary wide-angle shooter. On the front, you get an 8MP selfie camera.

The primary rear camera sensor is a decent performer. We managed to get well-balanced shots in proper lighting, and the Galaxy M20 performed a bit better than Zenfone Max Pro M2 and Realme U1. The Redmi Note 6 still takes the lead.

In low light, the Galaxy M20 can capture fairly good shots at times but the consistency takes a hit.


The new Exynos 7904 octa-core chipset powers the Galaxy M20, and believe us, it’s no slouch. We reviewed the 4GB RAM variant and the performance till now has been impressive. The chipset strikes a noticeable balance between battery consumption and raw power.


One of the biggest talking points of the Galaxy M20 is its gigantic 5000mAh battery, which also rare from Samsung. On top, we’ve spoken about the quest to balance raw power and battery life earlier. Having a big battery on a budget phone has slowly become a parameter which more brands like Moto, Asus have also been following after Xiaomi.

Overall Verdict

Overall like we said previously for the M10 its better than than and feels more snappy than the M10 antutu scores are better. It can also be a great device for your parents if you put few bucks more. And they will like it due its giant battery. And as it has more brand value then other competitions it will be easily available in the small n big shops. You can put few more buck than this and go for redmi 7s which is also splash resistant. And the Mi A3 is also a good option.
