Short description Samsung Galaxy A20e

This is a smartphone on Android 9 Pie with a very fast and productive processor, with a large touchscreen size, with a great camera that has 2 modules (13 MP Wide, 5 MP UltraWide), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Samsung Galaxy A20e has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Versions: SM-A202F/DS (Global).

Android version and market relevance

The company Samsung in April 2019 officially announced its new smartphone Samsung Galaxy A20e in the series of mobile devices Samsung Galaxy A. In our subjective opinion, this year one of the important parameters for smartphones has become support for 5G networks, and this new model, unfortunately, it did not receive such an opportunity and will not be able to work in 5G networks. Therefore, if this is important to you, then go to our page in the catalog where all 5G smartphones are assembled.

“Out of the box” on the new smartphone installed Android 9 Pie, which is updated to version 11. And besides, it is important to note immediately that the model Samsung Galaxy A20e supports two SIM cards (view all smartphones with 2 sim cards in the catalog).

Screen, body and battery

Moderately large 5.8-inch screen, made by technology PLS TFT installed in the smartphone Samsung Galaxy A20e.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Samsung Galaxy A20e the thickness of the case is 8.4 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body. In addition, the screen area in relation to the body area affects the positive feeling of the phone in the hands. This model has a screen area of 80% to 90% of the body area (watch all smartphones with a screen from edge to edge). And one more thing, the screen area is increased thanks to the upper cutout above it, while the body area remains unchanged. Samsung Galaxy A20e received a drop notch above the screen for a selfie camera and multiple sensors. Check out detailed photos of this smartphone for a better understanding of how it looks in real life.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Samsung Galaxy A20e installed battery for 3 000 mAh, and this is not enough, but not yet a lot.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Samsung Galaxy A20e. The main camera got several modules (dual camera smartphones): 13 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.

The front camera has one module: 8 MP with a regular lens. Do not say that this is very much, is in our catalog selfie smartphones, whose frontcamera will be an order of magnitude better. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Samsung Galaxy A20e received 8-core processor Exynos 7884. The amount of RAM in it is 3 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 32 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSDXC, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Samsung Galaxy A20e: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Samsung Galaxy A20e got into our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” and began to be sold in May 2019 at a price of $177. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Samsung Galaxy A20e is a very smart smartphone with a large screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery here is absolutely normal.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
