Samsung‘s long line of a series of devices this year includes this phone the A20. It’s actually looking pretty good. You get an ultra-wide rear camera, a huge battery life, and even One UI. Today, I will review Samsung A20 and discuss the Samsung A20 price in Nigeria.
Design-wise despite being on the lower end of the series. It’s pretty hefty at 169 grams. The back is made of this glossy polycarbonate material that gives off a little glare to give the impression of glass. But it looks and feels more like plastic, especially with this black variant. We get dual 13 plus 5-megapixel lenses and a fingerprint scanner also at the back. Which might be a little hard to reach for smaller hands upfront. We get a small notch that Samsung calls an Infinity V display.
It serves as the home for the 8-megapixel front camera and the call speaker looking at the 6.4-inch screen. We get some slim top and side bezels plus a slightly thicker chin. We get a Super AMOLED panel which is great though only at a resolution of 1516 x 720. But in any case, the viewing experience is still clear with punchy colors decent viewing angles. The screen can get really bright event 80% brightness. It’s usable outdoors.
Anyway, let’s wrap up the design. On the right are the volume rocker and power button. Which all feel normally clicky well. On the left is a triple card slot for 2 nano Sims and a micro SD card. There is no dedicated Bixby button on the left side.
Finally, at the bottom, we have the headphone jack main microphone loudspeaker, and a USB type-c port. Nice so for audio since I already mentioned the loudspeaker it comes out loud and crisp. It’s pretty standard for what we commonly get for a phone at this price range. The A20 has a built-in Dolby atmos feature to enhance sound. When using headphones it works pretty well.
The A20 runs on Android 9.0 (Pie), upgradable to Android 11, with One UI 3.1. Which we’ve been huge fans of since it launched with the s10 series. Powering the A20 is an Exynos 7884 (14 nm) chipset with a Mali-G71 MP2 GPU and 3 gigabytes of RAM.
Performance is just average well. Basic tasks and navigation are snappy. It slows down a little bit when multitasking or loading up new apps.
When it comes to security both face unlock and the fingerprint scanner work. But they’re kind of slow at times. It takes a whole one or two seconds before it recognizes my face or fingerprint. The facial recognition struggles at low-light conditions.
One of the a20 highlights is a huge 4000 milliamp-hour battery with 15-watt fast charging. For our PC Mark battery test, we got a total of 12 hours and 16 minutes. I was expecting it to last much longer than it did. But it’s redeemed in our standard video loop test which yielded a massive result of 23 hours of playback.
For charging we got from 20% to 100% it took an hour and 45 minutes. Which is faster than other entry or mid-range phones with a similar battery capacity.
Now for cameras, you get a 13 plus 5-megapixel setup at the back and an 8-megapixel front shooter. Generally, the rear shooters provide excellent quality photos with decent sharpness and good color accuracy. The A20 can record videos up to 1080p at 30fps while quality and color reproduction is good.
