The smartphones pack a lot of features which are listed below:

- USB Type-C Port
- Camera features include 123-degree ultra wide shots.
The Samsung Galaxy A20 is a mid-range smartphone. It comes with an HD+ Super AMOLED display. It comes with a 3D glasstic design which looks great and premium. The company’s Super AMOLED display is the plus point for this smartphone. The dual camera setup looks very promising at our first impressions. However, it houses the same Exynos 7884 processor which we have already seen in Galaxy A10.
Talking about the competition in this price range of around 13K, the real competitors of this smartphone are Samsung Galaxy M20, Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro, Realme 2 Pro, Honor 10 Lite and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2. So, the competition in this price range is very high.
If compared with the competition, the smartphone is offering a different feature like Super AMOLED Display panel which is never seen at this price. However, we think there was no need for Galaxy A20 at this price as Samsung’s own Galaxy M20 (Flash Review) is far better and beats it in display resolution, processor, battery. And other smartphones like Redmi Note 7 Pro are too ahead of this competition.
Overall, We don’t recommend Samsung Galaxy A20 to buy in this price range. However, at the time of writing this article, our first recommendation will be Redmi Note 7 Pro (Flash Review).
