Samsung’s A20 has proved to be popular in the market and the Korean company has followed that success up with the Samsung Galaxy A20s. Like its predecesor, this is a budget/mid-range Android phone, but with a few improved specs.
Samsung fans in Nigeria will be happy to see that fast charging is still in the picture and the rear camera now has 3 sensors instead of the two on the A20. The processor has been changed to a Qualcomm unit, which is good. However, it will be a dampener to some that the display is no longer Super AMOLED. But it isn’t a poor display still.
