- Analysis by KJ David
Touting a phablet-class 6.3-inch FHD+ (2340 x 1080) 19.5:9 display , the Samsung Galaxy M20 is one of Samsung's first mid-range releases of 2019. Just like its M10 little brother, the M20's biggest flaws include the awkward absence of NFC (Near Field Communication) , which was all but a standard smartphone facet as we were reviewing its pros and cons. Furthermore, its aforementioned large display comes with the budget-class TFT technology only , instead of the brand's signature Super AMOLED screen solution.
Those cons aside, the M20 boasts a large 5000mAh battery that scores a 101-hour audio playback time (6060 minutes) that was over 65 percent higher than the average value as we were writing this analysis. Its 29-hour 3G talk time sounds promising as well. Feel free to pit the M20 versus the best big-battery smartphones here.
This Galaxy M model is powered by a respectable octa-core Exynos 7904 chip consisting of a dual-core 1.8GHz main cluster and a hexa-core 1.6GHz deputy cluster for undemanding applications. It's not that big of a pro, though, since the best octa-core phones featured here on Phonerated run on engines that peak at around 2.6GHz. It is offered in two specs configurations, particularly, one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory and one with only 3GB of RAM and 32GB of memory. Both variants support up to 512GB of external storage , which is reassuring, coming from a mid-level contender.
Its imaging pros and cons include a 13- plus 5-megapixel dual camera , the second cam offering a 120-degree angle for scenic shots. Sitting on its tiny screen notch is an 8-megapixel f/2.0 selfie cam that carries the phone's Face Unlock feature. The M20 also sports a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner (Its M10 sibling lacks fingerprint-based authentication) and it is equipped with the Dolby Atmos 360 audio system.
Wrapping up, the Galaxy M20 caters to shoppers eying a middle-class phone with a large display and a fittingly-large battery.
