Samsung Galaxy M20 Review

Score: 9.41/10

Samsung Galaxy M20 is a wonderful Android cellphone released two years ago, equipped with a great Octa-Core processor speeding at 1800 MHz, a really big 6.3 inches screen, and 2 cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back camera and an 8 megapixels front-facing camera.

It seems like Samsung forgot about optimizing the weight in this 6.56 oz cellphone. Regarding its construction quality, this phone is mainly manufactured with Plastic and Plastic . The Samsung Galaxy M20 is available in two color options, charcoal black and ocean blue. Being just 0.35" thick,this phone is extremely slim and stilized. Even though this phone is just 6.16 inches long, it still manages to hold a 6.3" display.

Samsung designed the Samsung Galaxy M20 with an awesome 6.3" display, and a 1080 x 2340 resolution, making everything look completely perfect.

The M20 ships with a high performance Octa-Core processing unit speeding at 1800 MHz, bundled in a Samsung Exynos 7 Octa 7904 system chip with a large 4 GB of RAM. This phone counts with a huge 64 GB internal storage memory and an SD card slot, which allows you to install tons of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without worrying about running out of space.

This device has Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a wireless modem or router), LTE-A (4G) , a really fast connection type and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a bit slower 4G network) and fast 3G internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Samsung Galaxy M20 comes with 2 Nano SIM cards so it's able to use two different phone numbers in the same cellphone.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 13 MP back facing camera and an 8 MP front facing camera. While it's 13 mega-pixels may sound incredible the back facing camera has a small 0.322581 inches sensor which makes pictures have less details and worse lighting than they should. It is capable of shooting videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 30 frames per second.

This cellphone also comes with a lot of great characteristics as Fingerprint Reader, Biometric facial recognition, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth devices, computers and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and FM Radio, and multiple sensors like Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone features a 5000 mAh big capacity Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it at all. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it starts to lose its charge, whereas with its 5000 mAh you will probably buy a new cellphone before it becomes an issue.

No matter if you you love taking photographs, want it to play lots of games, want a device to mainly use social networks or want a work device, this cellphone is definitely a good choice for you.
