Samsung Galaxy A20 Camera Review, Photo and Video Results

Samsung Galaxy A20 Camera Review

At the beginning of the second quarter of 2022, Samsung released one of their entry-level smartphone products called the Samsung Galaxy A20.

This smartphone was created to help mobile users in their daily activities, including taking pictures or photography.

Talking about photography, of course, there are some who are a little skeptical about whether the camera facilities that the Galaxy A20 has are of good quality?

Given that the smartphone is in the low-end realm. Plus, the majority of low-end smartphones are only equipped with camera lenses of less than good quality.

To find out the answer, here is a brief review related to the camera facilities that the Samsung Galaxy A20 has.

Camera Specifications

Camera Specifications

In total there are 3 camera lenses embedded in the body of this Galaxy A20, of which 2 are located behind and 1 is in front.

For the camera on the back, one lens that acts as the main camera lens has a resolution of 13MP.

The lens sensor itself is a CMOS type with an aperture of f/1.9. While the resolution of the second camera lens is 5MP with an aperture of f/2.2 which functions as an ultrawide lens.

Turning to the front, the camera lens has a resolution of 8MP with an aperture of f/2.0 which was created specifically for selfie lovers or those who like to make video calls.

And both the rear or front lenses, all of them have been equipped with other supporting features so that the results and quality of photos or videos do not disappoint.

Camera Quality for Photography

Camera Quality for Photography

It can be said that for the size of an entry-level smartphone, the quality of the camera lens is definitely far below that of mid-range mobile devices, especially flagships, the camera lens of the Galaxy A20 is quite good.

This is evident when the main camera lens is used to photograph an object in a place with sufficient lighting, the results obtained look good with clear details.

It’s just that there is a blue tone that fades a little and makes the photo seem gloomy, but the saturation is just right.

The main camera lens is equipped with an auto-focus feature. When used for shooting outdoors in bright light, the auto-focus feature will quickly capture the main object and lock it instantly.

It’s just that, things are different when used indoors or in places with minimal lighting.

While the second camera lens, although only 5MP resolution, but when used to shoot in landscape mode, the farthest distance that can be captured is up to 123 degrees.

The result is not so disappointing and even the color is also similar to the original. It is said not to be so disappointing because there is indeed a little distortion when used in wide aperture mode.

Indeed, if you look closely, you will see a little noise, especially at the edges of the photo, but the software on the device has been able to minimize the appearance of these spots.

For the front camera lens itself, although it is not equipped with an auto-focus feature, the lens can still quickly find the main points on the object to be captured.

What’s more, when used for selfies, the results are also good because there is a beauty mode that can make the face look more perfect in the photo.

When used in portrait mode (Live focus) to take selfies outdoors in rich light, the sensor will quickly detect your face.

The results are not the best, but they are good enough for an entry-level smartphone.

Camera Quality for Videography

Of course, apart from being able to take pictures, the main camera lens can also be used to record videos with a recording resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels FHD @ 30fps.

Video recordings will be just as good as photos if the device does not experience a lot of movement, but if you record while walking or moving quickly, the results will be less pleasing to the eye when played back.

This is because the Samsung Galaxy A20 is not equipped with OIS facilities which can minimize the shocks that occur.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of the Samsung Galaxy A20 Camera Facility


The main camera lens has a high resolution for the size of an entry-level smartphone.

Coupled with many supporting features, such as digital zoom, auto-focus, touch focus, continuous shooting, geo tagging, panorama, HDR, face detection, white balance settings, iso, exposure compensation, scene modes to self-timer, makes it easier for Galaxy A20 users to be creative in photography or videography.


The main drawback of the camera facilities on the Galaxy A20 is that it lies in the front camera lens which has a low resolution.

With a low resolution, the results of selfie photos obtained are also less than optimal.

In addition, in certain places, especially in low light areas, noise will often be seen.

Another drawback is that there is no OIS feature which is very useful when the device is used to record video.
