Notebookcheck

The Samsung Galaxy M20 combines the usual strengths of the manufacturer with surprising weaknesses. Low price or not: There should have been more in there.

GSMArena

The Galaxy M20 addresses a lot of the complaints we had with the M10 - it adds a fingerprint reader, a USB-C port and fast charging capability, and vastly improved performance. It is then an easy recommendation over its lesser brother unless you absolutely cannot stretch your budget.

Samsung really seems to have made an effort to compete in the budget smartphone segment, but having used the Galaxy M20, I believe Samsung still has a long way to go before it can truly compete with the likes of Xiaomi, Honor or Asus. Look, the Galaxy M20 has decent cameras, the design is functional and practical, the battery and charging is super impressive, but the inconsistent performance just does not match up against the competition.

It comes with a brilliant display, a long-lasting battery life, and a sturdy build. Starting at Rs 10,990, it is Samsung's most aggressively priced device till date. It sure has its flaws like the design could have been more attractive, or the cameras could have been better, but it still makes for a good value for money if you look beyond these minor bumps.

Fone Arena

Next big budget bestseller

from Fone Arena

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.

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. There’s no doubt that the phone has plenty to offer in terms of performance, battery, but those who want more on camera should consider slightly more expensive options.

A mixed bag

from Digit

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.
