The Samsung Galaxy A20e is the most compact and at the same time almost the cheapest smartphone in the A-series, after the newly launched A10. This quirkly little almost-entry-level model features a dual camera a large battery, and a good price-performance ratio.
(For anyone wondering, the A20e replaces the Galaxy J6, although you can still get deals on that model too).
The Samsung Galaxy A20e combines essential features for everyday life, even if it is just a budget phone. There's no getting around the slightyl cheap and cheerful plastic casing, which weighs around 140g, but all of that is part of its appeal - it won't cost a fortune to replace.
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.
The compact 5.8-inch display, which fits easily into even the smallest pocket, is also likely going to be a big hit with its customers. As part of keeping that attractive entry-level price, Samsung dispenses with a high-contrast OLED display and instead uses a conventional LCD screen. Plus, it's the only A-Series model that does not feature Full HD+.
According to this review on Mobiles.co.uk, the HD-Plus resolution offers you a somewhat less-than-brilliant and not quite as sharp image reproduction as the other devices of the Galaxy family. The front camera with 8 megapixel sensor is integrated in the notch located centrally on the upper edge of the display, so it's not breaking any design boundaries.
Over on the (plastic) back, both the dual main camera and the optical fingerprint sensor are neatly packed into the casing. The camera module consists of a 13-megapixel main camera and an ultra wide-angle camera, which captures a field angle of 123 ° and has a slightly disappointing 5 megapixels.
According to our reviewer, photos can show visible noise especially under dim ambient light, so if you're looking to take a lot of high-quality photos you'll want to consider perhaps something a bit more up-range such as the A70.
Continuing this pattern over to the hardware area, the A20e model is somewhat restricted to the minimum that will allow it to get by. This includes an eight-core Exynos 7884B processor with 3GB of RAM - not really enough for many of today's apps and features, but given the power conumption that will come with those, this is understandable. Remember, you should practice patience with more complex applications on the A20e.
Don't forget that the internal 32 GB memory can be expanded by up to 512 GB with the help of a microSD card. The battery promises to last pretty much for almost a week with infrequent use, with a capacity of 3000 mAh means an always-on life of about 15 hours. Thanks to the supplied Fast Charging Charger, the smartphone is quickly ready for use again.
If you're looking for a budget-friendly Android phone, and don't want to spend the extra money on features you probably won't need, then you can't go wrong with the Samsung Galaxy A20e - although you may find it a little underpowered, and if your budget can stretch to something like the Galaxy A50 then we'd highly recommend it. The cost difference is likely to be very minimal, per month.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to
be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand
new Samsung Galaxy A20e contract only to find you can't use your data (never
mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.
A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signal
across all major mobile networks across the UK.
According to Which?, In their latest research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance
and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and
Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had
to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.
EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with
customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal -
they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

possible as the Mobile Networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.
A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much
a Samsung Galaxy A20e SIM free phone would cost, this is where you buy the phone
without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront. The benefit here is flexibility: you're
able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile Networks often give you far better usage
allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the
monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM
Free Samsung Galaxy A20e handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare
this cost to a regular Samsung Galaxy A20e Contract.
Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contract is to consider purchasing a
pre owned Samsung Galaxy A20e phone from the likes of Music Magpie who provide
warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
