Want to buy a budget phone in 2019? , No problem Samsung Company that has proved to be one of the best in this modern era has recently launched M20 in Nepal which can be considered one of the best budget phones for many people. Recently in the past, Samsung has proved that it was back in track(according to plan) at the budget market with Samsung Galaxy M10. Samsung Galaxy M10 was too awesome for its price of Rs. 13790 that we had ranked it as one of the best phones which could be affordable according to budget targeted of RS. 15000 list. It contained almost everything (storage, camera quality, battery power, etc.). Although some of the people weren’t convinced. So Samsung launched its big brother_ The Samsung Galaxy M20 with its price tag of RS. 18490.
Design & Build quality
To be honest, Samsung Galaxy M20 is incomparable at its price. Like just imagine how lucky we are for getting a full HD+ LCD screen with a beautiful teardrop match design.
The build quality is solid and the design is attractive. I have used this device although for a short moment and it really feels questionable like how can this phone just cost RS. 18,490. It does feel little heavy though. But you will find the reason for that little later in this article.
Inside, you have Samsung’s Exynos 7904 functioning this device. It is combined with 3 GB ram. You can see how it performs in our full review of the Samsung Galaxy M20. But, in a nutshell, there are not many complaints that we can throw at The Samsung with this device’s performance. Multitasking is smooth, navigating the UI is smooth. The weird slowness throughout the UI that I experienced with the M10 is nowhere to be seen here. This phone is snappy and will surely make you happy with its performance.
Samsung Galaxy M20 comes with 32 GB of Internal Storage along with a microSD card slot expandable up to 256 GB.

Samsung Galaxy M20 Price in Nepal
Another part where the Galaxy M20 performed beautifully was in the camera department. I think Anmol does a great job in explaining M20’s camera chops. So I suggest you go check that video out. All I will say is that a proper dual camera system, with a normal and a wide angle lens, is surely unheard of in this price range.
The next awesome about the Galaxy M20 its battery. It has a huge 5000 mAh battery which is the reason for its heaviness. But will you want a light phone that can’t last a single day of use or add some extra grams to get a phone that has the potential to give you two whole day of moderate usage? I would go for the latter.
Anyways, the Galaxy M20 has a battery life to beat. It is made sweeter by the fact that the phone supports 15 W fast charging. So, it won’t take you a day when you charge this battery.
Overall, the Galaxy M20 is good according to its price… It looks like Samsung has worked hard for making a sustainable relationship. They have made a good decision in the part of battery life, the cameras, and more importantly, the price determined. I can surely say you would not afford any other phone once you try it.
M10 vs M20
If you are stuck between which phone to choose between Galaxy M10 and the M20, I’d kindly advice you to choose Galaxy M20 because of it’s some significant improvements and advanced features over the Galaxy M10 that has made it more costly (5 K price difference). For example, the screen is higher resolution, the navigation in the UI is smooth, the charging port is USB C, RAM and storage is bigger, and more importantly, the speaker is side-firing instead of back-firing. If I were you, I would choose the M20 as its one of the best thing to be affordable in the 18K list.
