Samsung Galaxy A20e Review

If you're after a Samsung phone on a budget, you really can't go wrong with Samsung's A series. As well as its impressive affordability, the range is well-known for packing cutting-edge specs inside sleek smartphone frames.

The latest instalment is the Samsung Galaxy A20e, and this Android-powered device is sure to be a hit with its 5.8-inch HD screen and dual camera offering. Let's find out more about the handset below.

Samsung Galaxy A20e Design

There's no denying the Samsung Galaxy A20e is a good-looking device, with its plastic unibody giving the handset a fresh, streamlined appearance. Durable too, you won't have to worry about unsightly scratches on this phone.

The smaller version of the Galaxy A20, the A20e measures just 5.80 x 2.74 x 0.33 inches (that's only 8.4mm wide) and weighs 141g. Ideal for those who prefer smaller phones, this is a Galaxy that'll definitely fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, all while offering a sizable 5.8-inch display thanks to the edge-to-edge design of the screen making the most of the space available.


You'll find a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on the A20e too, for quick yet secure access. There's a headphone jack on board as well - handy for those who are fans of wired headphones.

Samsung Galaxy A20e Display

For a smaller handset, the A20e still boasts an almost 6-inch screen. Coming in at 5.8 inches, the display offers a HD+ (720 x 1570) resolution, spans right across the front of the device, is nearly bezel free and sports a 19:5:9 ratio - brilliant for online streaming and gaming, as well as your typical everyday tasks.


The A20e showcases one of Samsung's Infinity V-displays too. Featuring a V-shaped notch at the top-centre of the screen, the front-facing camera is discreetly housed here, alongside the phone's face unlocking technology.

Samsung Galaxy A20e Camera

For a mid-range handset, the Samsung Galaxy A20e certainly has an impressive camera system. The rear camera is a dual-lens 13MP+5MP set up, and Wide Shot mode will automatically kick in when it needs to. Utilising the 5MP lens, Wide Shot takes advantage of this camera's 123-degree field of view - that's the same as the human eye - to squeeze more of the action into one photo.


Day or night, you can expect refined, clear snaps - even in low light conditions. The front-facing camera is equally as impressive as well, with the 8MP lens promising to always catch your good side. Selfie focus helps you to create that desired bokeh effect found on professional portraits while Samsung's Smart Beauty Mode naturally enhances your best features for smoother, more defined photos.

You can also have tonnes of fun with the built-in AR stickers, stamps and range of filters loaded into the Camera app. As for videographers, you'll be able to record in 1080p @ 30fps - that's Full HD.

Samsung Galaxy A20e Battery

For a smaller handset, this A20e sure does bring it when it comes to power. The 3,000 mAh battery loaded onto the phone is certainly large enough to last you all day with everyday use, and you won't have to hang around for it to power back up when it does hit 0% - 15W Fast Charging technology means you can boost this smartphone in next to no time.


Samsung Galaxy A20e Power

As well as a powerful battery, there's loads of other tech working behind the scenes to keep this handset running smoothly. 3GB RAM and an octa-core CPU with an advanced Exynos 9884 chipset deliver a lag-free, super-fast performance, while 32GB of internal memory means you'll have loads of room for customising your phone, whether that's by downloading apps or shooting pictures. Doesn't seem like enough? With the addition of a microSD card, you can increase onboard storage to 512GB.


This Android phone runs on the latest operating system 9.0 (Android Pie), meaning you can expect the latest system and security updates, as well as loads of up-to-date Android features. This phone also uses Samsung's customised interface One UI, which has been designed to provide the best possible user experience on the A20e. From better navigation to smarter notifications and an all-new Night Mode, One UI is Samsung at its very best.
