2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Nice design, with a modern front panel - a 6.4-inch display, superslim bezels and a top U-shaped notch
  • Decent 6.4-inch AMOLED display - it has good color reproduction, and good sunlight legibility
  • Samsung has gotten the software part on point with it's recent launches, with it's new One UI, that's now one of the better, more streamlined Android skins around - it's especially well suited for big displays like this, packs an intuitive gesture navigation system, and other useful things like a convenient 'dark mode'
  • Good set of cameras for the price bracket
  • The rear setup includes a 13-megapixel primary lens and a 5-megapixel wide-angle lens - the pictures come out especially good outdoors
  • Portrait mode works well too, and there is Samsung's Live Focus option, which gives you control over how blurry the background appears
  • The 8-MP selfie cam is good too - the color output is bold and realistic, and there's a good portrait mode here as well
  • Very good battery life with a large 4000-mAh battery, combined with the low power display - you will easily get 1.5 days of use
  • Decent fast charging speed - you will get 30% charge in 30 minutes, and 100% in less than 2 hours

2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The glossy plastic body is easily scratched, and also tends to gather fingerprints (you will want to use a case)
  • The phone's rear fingerprint sensor is slow (you will mostly prefer using face unlock)
  • Screen resolution is on the low side though - text, and app icons can often look slightly jagged on the A20's display
  • The performance powered by the Exynos 7904 chipset (similar to Snapdragon 632) and 3GB of RAM is fine in day-to-day use, but not quite up to the level of the best performers in this price bracket
  • On the whole, while the A20 is a decent option for the price bracket, and does especially well with battery life and a decent set of cameras - however, it falls a bit behind in terms of performance, and is a mixed bag in terms of the display - AMOLED, but low resolution - you will find better all-round options from the likes of Xiaomi, Realme and Asus
