Refurbished Samsung Galaxy M20 (64GB)
- Samsung has seen its favorite market share position in India swallowed by Xiaomi, in just an equivalent way that it overtook Nokia a few years ago. The corporate has tried to reply in several alternative ways over the years, but only a few of its recent low-cost offerings are competitive enough in our reviews and ratings.
- It’s finally time for an entire strategy reset, then now we have the fresh Refurbished Samsung Galaxy M-series.
- Strategy aside, the new Galaxy M series represents an enormous shift for the corporate in terms of design and specifications. There is no doubt that these phones are aimed squarely at Xiaomi, Honor, Realme, and Asus. It seems almost as if Samsung went out into the market with a checklist and tried to work out all little things that these companies neutralize their perpetual race to one-up one another.
- The rear and sides of this phone are one molded shell with no seams or maybe antenna lines. We’re happy to notice that despite being glossy, the rear of this phone isn’t slippery in the least. the edges of this phone are rounded, but it’s bulky overall, because of the 5000mAh battery — more thereon during a bit. It is also quite thick and heavy, and that we felt the load after using it for extended periods.
- The Galaxy M20 features a USB Type-C port on rock bottom, unlike the Micro-USB port on its less costly sibling.
- Everything else is fairly standard — there is a 3.5mm audio socket on rock bottom, power and volume buttons on the proper, and a tray on the left for 2 Nano-SIMs also as a fanatical MicroSD card slot. The twin rear camera module features a tiny ridge around it to assist prevent the lenses from getting scratched but doesn’t protrude in the least.
- Overall, while the Samsung Galaxy M20 doesn’t have much of a private identity, Every design choice has been made to support a feature that Samsung must offer.

Design Of Refurbished Samsung Galaxy M20
Over the past few years, affordable phones from Samsung all carried similar designs. you’ll easily spot a mid-range Samsung smartphone from a distance. The Galaxy M20 puts a stop thereto. Last year the upper mid-range phones started implemented the Infinity AMOLED panels with an 18:9 ratio, ensuring some level of differentiation. The quad-camera Galaxy A9 even introduced bright colors like Bubblegum Pink to the company’s phone, but the Galaxy M20 is a sign that there’s an opportunity for a complete design overhaul in other upcoming affordable Samsung phones. The Galaxy M20 trades off metal-grade durability for a glossy polycarbonate casing. It’s hard plastic outside held together by a tough plastic frame. It’s nicely rounded corners and therefore the display seems to be a separate unit joined to the rear panel along the sides. The outer shell bulges out, perhaps to stay the screen from hitting the bottom first, just in case the phone slips from your hand. Therein regard, the phone is straightforward to grip and isn’t quite slippery. (Know More About The Screen Replacement Cost Of Samsung )
Display Of Refurbished Samsung Galaxy M20
The near-bezel-less implementation of the display isn’t the sole thing that’s new within the Galaxy M20. The panel itself is never employed by OEMs aside from Samsung. It’s a 6.3-inches PLS TFT panel, that’s tons almost like the standard IPS LCD panels employed by other phones during this price range. But PLS (or Plane Line Switching) allows for better viewing angles and better maximum brightness. It doesn’t have infinite contrast like Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays, but it’s relatively brighter and more vibrant than other displays during this range. The height brightness of 537 lux is far higher and therefore the colors seem to begin.
Refurbished Samsung M20 UI
The Exynos 7904 powers the phone, and supported an in-depth performance analysis we performed, it isn’t really at par with the present competition. Samsung manufactures the SoC on a 14nm process and has eight cores — Two Cortex A73 cores clocked at 1.8GHz for performance-intensive tasks and 6 Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz for high-efficiency. However, an easy Google search revealed the new chipset (as far as raw performance is concerned) isn’t much different from the older Exynos 7885 SoC. Both have equivalent cores arranged in similar clusters and made on an equivalent process. The sole difference, it seems is within the ISP. The ‘new’ Exynos 7904’s ISP can support three cameras now, rather than two, but since the Galaxy M20 only comes with two, there’s nothing really new in terms of performance. Having said that, benchmark reports revealed the Samsung Galaxy M20 competes tolerably with the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 and therefore the Realme 2 Pro. While the Exynos 7885-powered Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) fell well below the Snapdragon 660’s level of performance, the Galaxy M20 made up some ground.
Samsung Camera Sensor
The camera on the Samsung Galaxy M20 is exclusive, a minimum of for the worth it’s offered at. The M20 features a 5MP ultra-wide camera alongside a 13MP primary camera. The sheer presence of a wide-angle camera is disruptive, considering no other smartphone during this budget segment offers the power to require wide-angle photos. However, it’s one thing to introduce a replacement feature and another thing to implement in a useful and meaningful way.
Wide-Angle Camera Of Samsung M20
The 5MP ultra-wide-angle camera offers a 120-degree field of view, allowing more objects to return within the frame. Wide-angle cameras aren’t really new Android phones, but it’s for the lower mid-range segment, and therefore the phone fairly does what it promises. However, the wide-angle camera suffers from an equivalent drawback that those on the Galaxy A7 and therefore the Galaxy A9 do.
Primary 13MP Camera Of Samsung M20
The primary 13MP sensor with f/1.9 aperture isn’t all that bad. It takes fairly well-lit photos when there’s ample light. It also captures tons of details that are noticeable in close-up shots. It also managed to form the colors within the frame begin, as an example, the brilliant orange cover on the truck within the sample below, or the green logo within the next one. There’s no AI scene recognition working here within the background, and in photos taken within the day, Samsung also doesn’t apply noise reduction. That helps get crisp, vibrant photos.
Portrait Mode Of Samsung M20 Mobile
The portrait mode on the Samsung Galaxy M20 is named the ‘Live Focus’ mode. Supported what we’ve seen high-end Samsung phones do, the portrait mode on the Galaxy M20 isn’t all that effective. It only works when the camera detects a face, and it does the topic segmentation using the software. As a result, the background blur looks quite artificial, almost like most Honor phones therein the price range.
Low Light Camera Of Samsung M20 Mobile
It’s not fair to expect good low-light photos within the mid-range segment, but phones just like the Redmi Note 6 Pro and therefore the Mi A2 have spoilt us. The Galaxy M20 also belongs to the group of phones that fails to capture good photos in low light. The phone doesn’t have a fanatical night mode and there’s significant shutter lag, which makes shooting moving objects damn near impossible. Furthermore, the colors appear faded. Samsung applies its aggressive noise-reduction techniques that take the sharpness far away from the photos, sometimes to some extent where they seem out of focus.
Selfies with the Galaxy M20 should keep the typical user busy. The 8MP selfie sensor with f/2.0 aperture is fairly capable of taking good self-portraits given there’s adequate light. The facial details are well-maintained and there’s a beauty mode just in case you would like to fiddle with skin tones and hues. The front camera, however, isn’t all that great in low-light or in dingy bars where you’re more likely to require photos.
Refurbished Samsung M20 Battery Charging Time
The icing on the cake is that the massive 5,000mAh battery that the Samsung Galaxy M20 comes with. It’s the primary Samsung phone to deal with A battery as big as this. The Galaxy Note 9 was the one with the highest capacity before this with a 4,000mAh battery. Safe to mention, the ghost of the Galaxy Note 7 is now well behind within the past. Samsung overhauled its battery manufacturing process by including more stringent tests, and it got the arrogance to implement high-capacity batteries like this one. The one on the Galaxy M20 lasts fairly long, half-hour of Netflix streaming drained the battery by 3 percent while a quarter-hour of PUBG Mobile drained the battery down from 64 percent to 61 percent, which is perfectly fine considering how demanding of an app it is!
