Samsung has seen its number one market percentage function in India swallowed by Xiaomi, in precisely the equal way that it overtook Nokia a few years in the past. The company has tried to respond in several special ways over the years, but only a few of its latest low-fee services have been aggressive enough in our opinions and rankings. The Korean massive has used its youngsters-focused J-collection and software program features consisting of S motorcycle Mode to cope with the price range market, however that just can not compare to the large monitors, effective processors, and tonnes of storage that Xiaomi and others provide on the identical costs.
Samsung Galaxy M20 design
Put simply, this phone does not look or feel like any existing Samsung phone. It’s extremely generic and could pass off for something from any of a handful of other manufacturers. Head-on, it’s virtually indistinguishable from the Realme U1 ₹ 10,999 (Review) or Oppo F9 ₹ 15,690 (Review), for example. More than a criticism of Samsung though, this says more about how little scope there is for individuality when reducing a phone’s features to such a degree of minimalism.
The biggest departure from previous Samsung designs is the waterdrop-style ‘Infinity-V’ notch at the top of the screen, which is just big enough for the front camera to fit into. The screen measures 6.3 inches diagonally with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and rounded corners in keeping with current trends. There is a bit of a chin at the bottom of the screen — interestingly, if you place the Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10 side by side, you’ll see that they look identical except that the Galaxy M20 has a taller screen and narrower chin, for a screen-to-body ratio exceeding 90 precent.
The top and side borders around the screen do look narrow, but the sides of this phone bulge outwards considerably. This helps allow the earpiece to be placed within the frame, above the screen notch. There is an ambient light sensor, but it can’t be seen. The proximity sensor is to the left of the notch and that placement doesn’t seem to have hurt its functionality.
Both the Galaxy M20 and the Galaxy M10 will be sold in the same two colours, Ocean Blue and Charcoal Black. Our Galaxy M20 review unit is Ocean Blue, which does stand out. It’s quite dark, with a glossy finish and a very fine grainy pattern that gives it some depth. Samsung hasn’t said exactly what material it has used for the rear shell, but it feels plasticky.ModelSamsung Galaxy M20
