Samsung Galaxy A20 Review, Specs and Price in Cameroon


The Samsung Galaxy A20 is a smartphone by Samsung which was released in early 2019. The phone was released in February 2019, so it's kind of a bit old smartphone as it has been in the market for more than a year. The good thing is the price in African markets, such as Cameroon, will be relatively stable.

The design will not win any awards, considering the phone's body is just plastic. However, the Galaxy A20 is an excellent phone if you're on a low budget. The phone is available in 5 colors; Black, Deep Blue, Red, Coral Orange, and Gold.
In this review, we'll go through the device's features, specifications, and performance, and we'll see whether it is perfect for anyone. The smartphone is, however, on the lower end regarding features and specifications, so we should avoid judging it too harshly or comparing it with unreasonable competitors.

Samsung Galaxy A20 Specifications and Review


The Samsung Galaxy A20 sports a 6.4 inches Super AMOLED display with a 720 x 1560 screen resolution. This leaves the screen pixel density of 268 PPI and a screen-to-body ratio of 85%. The display also has the corning gorilla glass 3 protection, which is perfect.
When it comes to the display, the galaxy A20 is reasonably good. The colors are vibrant, and the blacks are profound thanks to the super AMOLED display. The screen is also huge considering that the device utilizes the water drop feature for the front-facing camera. However, with the 720P display, sharpness is lost. The screen has enough brightness in broad daylight, although sometimes you will struggle a bit, especially under direct sunlight.

Hardware & Software

The Galaxy A20 runs on Android 9.0 out of the box with the One UI launcher. It is powered by the Exynos 7884 chipset, an octa-core CPU. A Mali-G71 MP2 GPU is then added to the combination.

With Android 9.0 and the One UI, you get a smooth experience without any stutter, thanks to the well-optimized One UI. The launcher is very easy to navigate. Also, with the combination of the chipset and the GPU, the phone's performance during regular operation is shockingly perfect. No stutter at all. The phone can also run some light games too.


The phone comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The amount of RAM might seem a bit low compared to today's devices, but it doesn't affect the phone's usability. The 32 GB of internal storage is also light for smartphone users. However, there's a dedicated MicroSDXC slot if you want to slide in a memory card. The fact that it's a dedicated lot means you won't have to sacrifice one of the Nano-SIM slots, which I'm sure we all hate.


The camera on the Galaxy A20 will disappoint you. But you can only notice the decline in quality if you're coming from using a smartphone with a better camera, or maybe you had high hopes.

Rear Camera

The Samsung Galaxy A20 comes with a dual-camera setup at the rear, consisting of a 13 MP primary camera and a 5 MP ultra-wide shooter. The cameras are positioned in a vertical arrangement and look like those in old Chinese smartphones. You also get a single LED flash for the low light conditions.

Front Camera

The phone utilizes a single 8 MP shooter with no front-facing LED flash. The camera can, however, shoot videos at 1080p and at 30fps.

Camera Performance

The camera performance is mediocre. The photos are better in broad daylight. However, in low-light conditions, the images appear grainy and lack detail. The camera focuses fast in broad daylight but takes time in low light conditions. The ultra-wide camera takes reasonably good shots, except there's some blur at the edges.
The same case applies to the front-facing camera; the photos are relatively good only in well-lit areas. The images are sharp enough, but if you're just a casual selfie taker, the images will appear pretty okay.


Regarding battery life, the Galaxy A20 doesn't disappoint at all.
The phone is powered by a 4000 mAh battery with a 15W fast charging capability. The fast charging feature also helps charge the phone a bit faster, although it takes about 2 hours to get a full battery. You also get the USB Type-C which is fantastic. The phone easily lasts 2 days with light usage.

Other features

Other Features include a Rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor, FM Radio, 4G capable, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, Compass, and 3.5 mm jack.


The Galaxy A20 offers some excellent features for its price range. Considering the phone goes for around 80000 Francs CFA, I'd say it's a reasonable price for a good phone.
The Super AMOLED display is outstanding and beautiful. The screen also has the corning gorilla glass 3 protection, which is pretty good. However, the display lacks sharpness due to the low-resolution display. The fact that you get the phone runs on Android 9.0 out of the box is excellent. You also get a dedicated micro-SCDXC slot, NFC, USB-Type-C, a massive battery with fast charging capability, and all this data very reasonable price.

However, the camera performance is nowhere near impressive, but it will work if you're just a casual camera user. The Samsung Galaxy A20 is an excellent smartphone, even if it's a bit old. If you want a much more powerful and newer variant, the Samsung Galaxy A70 is the one to go for.
