Samsung, for all its flagship prowess, was noticeably absent from the budget phone wars over the past few years. The few products they had sold purely on brand value had paled in comparison to the likes of Asus and Xiaomi.
That’s set to change with the Galaxy M series, the Samsung Galaxy M20 in particular, which delivers a credible offering that takes the fight to the competition and gives Samsung its first device in the budget segments that’s truly worth recommending.
A 6.3-inch full HD+ teardrop notched display, a midrange Exynos 7904 chip and 3/32 GB or 4/64 GB variants (with storage expansion), dual 13 MP /5 MP rear cameras and an 8 MP selfie shooter, face unlock and a fingerprint scanner,and a massive 5,000 mAh battery – these are specs and features hitherto to unseen on a Samsung in this segment. The winner is the TFT display Samsung uses on the M20 – colours are vibrant and contrast ratios are excellent. Then there’s support for the Widevine L1 standard – a rarity in phones under Rs 20,000 that lets you stream high-resolution content from Netflix and Prime Video. Performance levels on the 7904 chip are competent, and the M20 is a breeze to use, unlocks via facial recognition snappily and multitasks well between apps and games.

Final Words :
The Samsung Galaxy M20 is created especially for Millennials living on the edge and doing nothing to compromise. The Galaxy M20 is a powerful smartphone with a beautiful infinity V-cut display, a wide-angle camera, a huge battery with faster charging and a powerful processor along with Samsung brand trust.
The design is a tad generic. Daytime shots on the camera add a different perspective to cityscapes, but the low -light images take a hit. The ads on the lock screen are a bother.
