Samsung Galaxy A20 is one of the manufacturer’s new smartphones. Currently going for around ₦52,000 in stores around the country, it is a decent smartphone for the price. However, if you are not satisfied with what it offers, there are quite a number of smartphones available in the market that offer more or different.
We have taken the liberty to compile a list of Samsung Galaxy A20 alternatives for you to explore. The smartphone world is big afterall and there is something for you if you look hard enough.
Samsung Galaxy A20 runs Android 9 Pie out of the box and has a 6.4-inch Infinity-V display, EXYNOS 7884 processor (14 nm), 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory, and a 4000 mAh battery with 15W fast charging. It is a respectable package for the price, but it isn’t the only one that offers good value at that price.
Samsung Galaxy A20 Alternatives
In compiling this list, the overriding question was, what alternatives to the Galaxy A20 are available in the market for the same price bracket? So, if you are ready, let’s go.
UMIDIGI A7 Pro 6.3-Inch (4GB/128GB)
UMIDIGI isn’t a big name but it offers some interesting propositions. The A7 Pro is one of them that delivers serious value for money in 2020.
We are looking at a 6.3″ display, a Helio P23 processor (16 nm), 4GB RAM, 128GB storage memory, and a 4150mAh battery coupled with 10W fast charging.
The rear camera is a 16MP quad lens affair, while the front is a 16MP selfie camera. UMIDIGI A7 Pro has one of the widest range of 4G LTE bands on a smartphone, and it runs stock Android 10, making it an up-to-date Samsung Galaxy A20 alternative. Plus, the experience is likely to be smoother. Lastly, it just looks the part.
Buying the A7 Pro will set you back by just ₦53,500. Note that there is a 64GB storage version that costs almost ₦10,0000 less. You get the same performance and features, but less storage. And that less storage is still double what you get from the Galaxy A20. Whichever UMIDIGI A7 Pro variant you buy, you are getting great value for your money.
TECNO Pouvoir 4 (3GB/32GB)
For roughly the same price as the Galaxy A20 costs, TECNO Pouvoir 4 brings the same RAM and storage configuration – 3GB and 32GB respectively. But it adds a much bigger 7-inch display and a much bigger 6000mAh battery to the fight. You will have to be patient topping up that battery though, as it lacks any form of fast charging.
The processor is a Mediatek Helio A22 (12 nm) job. At the rear is a 13-MP quad camera with quad-LED flash, while in front is an 8MP selfie camera. When it comes to software, it is up-to-date with Android 10 and TECNO’s own HiOS.
You can pick up this Samsung Galaxy A20 alternative from stores for ₦52,000.
Nokia 6.1 (3GB/32GB)
Instead of a polycarbonate shell, the Nokia 6.1 comes with a gorgeous, premium 6000 series aluminium body. This Nokia is eye candy.
But it isn’t just a case of beauty and no brawns. A respectable Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor (14 nm) runs things, along with 3GB of RAM and 32 GB storage. what you have is a more powerful phone but with same RAM and storage as the Samsung Galaxy A20. On the software side, you get pure Android 9 Pie, upgradable to Android 10.
You also get 18W fast battery charging. We have a review too, so do click to go read. Nokia 6.1 sells for around ₦55,000 now.
OPPO A3s (3GB/32GB)
Up next on our list of Samsung Galaxy A20 alternatives is the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant of the OPPO A3s. Here you have a 6.2″ display. A Snapdragon 450 processor (14 nm) powers the show. One aspect that is hard to swallow is the lack of fast charging for the big 4230mAh battery.
The key attractions are the big battery and the elegant design language. But ColorOS has some privacy features that some find important.
In all, be ready to spend ₦52,000 if you want the OPPO A3s 3/32GB.
OPPO A5s (3/32GB)
Another OPPO smartphone is next on our list of alternatives to the Galaxy A20. This time, it comes at ₦54,000. OPPO A5s offers more features than the A3s does. In addition to the 6.2″ display, you get a Helio P35 processor (16 nm), 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, and a 4230mAh battery.
It sucks though that there is no fast charging at all for the battery again. Your call though.
Xiaomi Redmi 7 (3GB/64GB)
Xiaomi makes phones that are often a bargain for their price and the Redmi 7 is one of them. Note: this is NOT Redmi Note 7; just Redmi 7.

Samsung has a small upgrade to the Galaxy A20 too, and it is called Samsung Galaxy A20s (2019). It is powered by a lowly Snapdragon 450 processor (14 nm), but its main improvement over the A20 is the triple camera at the back. If you are looking for a Samsung Galaxy A20 alternative inside of Samsung’s own empire, this might be just what you are looking for. Be ready to shell out ₦56,500.
Infinix S4 (6GB/64GB)
6GB of RAM and 64GB storage is a massive upgrade from the Samsung Galaxy A20. Which is the combination that this variant of Infinix S4 packs for just ₦56,000. That is some serious value. You also get a 4000mAh battery with 10W fast charging.
Under the hood is a Helio P22 processor (12 nm). A system update has added more useful features like digital well-being and gaming mode to the S4, so mobile gamers on a budget might want to look at the Infinix S4 again.
