Samsung Galaxy A20e: the full review 2020

2019 is the year of great storage for Samsung. The Galaxy A family now accommodates mid-range and entry-level ranges. The A20e carries the bare essentials to reach an attractive price of 189 euros. But is that enough for it to compete with the many Chinese smartphones that are flooding the market? Answer in our review.

A compact format that appeals

No big unsightly notch or punch like on high-end Galaxy … The Galaxy A20e has a fairly discreet teardrop notch. Its design could not be more classic, with fairly wide borders and a format that remains among the most compact marketed by the South Korean brand.

On the back of the device, a plastic coating which tends to retain dust and fingerprints, reminds us that we are holding an entry-level product there. At the top left, we find a double photo module and its flash oriented vertically. In the center is the fingerprint sensor. The latter reacts quickly under the finger.

The lower edge houses a USB Type-C port, a fact rare enough in this price segment to be highlighted. This is flanked by a speaker grille, a microphone and a jack. The right flank houses the power on / lock / unlock buttons and those provided for adjusting the audio volume. On the other side, a drawer can accommodate two nano sim and a micro SD card simultaneously. From the point of view of connectivity, it is a faultless.

A bright, well-contrasted screen

Samsung has chosen for its Galaxy 20e – once is not customary – a 5.8-inch LCD panel with a definition of 1560 x 720 pixels for a resolution of 296 ppi. A very satisfactory choice for a screen of this size. The contrast ratio of 1453: 1 and the maximum brightness of 553 cd / m² guarantee good readability even under the sun. Our probe reveals a particularly high Delta E of 6.11. The color temperature is cold, the whites turn blue. These results cannot be improved since there are no other profiles in the display settings. Another point of contention which this time concerns the touch interface, there is a delay which prevents a smooth navigation experience.

Android Pie and One UI

For the software part, the 20th takes advantage of the Android Pie 9.0 and One UI 1.1 tandem. A marriage that works wonderfully: without going too far from the Google OS, the manufacturer’s interface brings a few little extras. Dark mode, application cloning and icon packs complete the user experience. The Samsung overlay offers a more intuitive handling with much more clarity than before in its organization.

Very average performance

The Exynos 7885 built into this Galaxy A20e and its 3 GB of RAM does not work miracles. The results noted during the benchmarks reveal a certain weakness compared to a Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, certainly a little more expensive and remain even slightly lower than that of a Redmi 7, significantly less expensive. In use this is confirmed, we encountered some slowdowns. The device quickly finds its limits if you juggle between different applications or when you switch to multi windowed mode. You won’t make it a racing beast for your video games, that’s for sure, but that’s the case with almost all smartphones under 200 euros.

With only 32 GB of storage space available (21 GB actually available), you quickly reach saturation. Fortunately, you can add a micro SD up to 512 GB for storing your content.

Quick recharge in the program

In use, this Galaxy can last between a little over a day, if you don’t overuse multimedia content. Our versatile autonomy review delivers a result of 11 hours and 22 minutes. If this turns out to be very correct, there is nothing exceptional, the Redmi 7 reaches more than 13 hours and the Wiko View 3 more than 14 hours. The A20e benefits from fast charging. With the official 15 W charger, it takes about 45 minutes to go from 0 to 50% and one hour and 38 minutes to reach 100% battery.

Passable photos

The dual photo of the Galaxy A20e has a first 13-megapixel sensor with a lens opening to f / 1.9 and a second 5-megapixel sensor with ultra wide-angle that covers 123 degrees.

In high lights, photos lack detail, due to too heavy software processing. The colors are bland and the texture effects far too smooth. The ultra-wide angle offers dull shots, with even less detail than on the main sensor and significant image distortion at the edges of the shots.

In low light, this does not work out, quite the contrary. Light sources generate strong light halos and noise contaminates image quality. The very wide angle does not convince either: it is a veritable mush of pixels.

The verdict of the review

Samsung Galaxy A20e

For an entry-level smartphone, the Galaxy A20e brings together most of what we are entitled to expect in this segment: a rather bright screen, satisfactory autonomy and fairly good photos in high lights. Far from being perfect, it sins mainly by performance in terms of fluidity of navigation and power, less impressive than in some competitors. The rest of the formula works, we appreciate the compact format, fast charging and full connectivity … only regret, the smartphone does not really shine in any category.
