Specs comparison: Samsung Galaxy M20 vs Galaxy A7 (2018)


Last updated: January 28th, 2019 at 15:22 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy M20 is a budget phone while the Galaxy A7 (2018) is a mid-range phone, so why a comparison between the two, you ask? Well, there’s only one reason, and that’s the fact that both of these phones come with an ultra-wide camera that shoots 120-degree photos. While the Galaxy A7 (2018) was the only Samsung phone to offer ultra-wide imaging when it launched, it is no longer alone as both the Galaxy A9 (2018) and the Galaxy M20 have an ultra-wide camera. And yes, the new M10 does as well, but it’s the Galaxy M20 that has a bigger list of impressive features so it’s the device that one can go for if they don’t want to spend money on the A7.

Check out the table below to see how the specs on the Galaxy M20 and Galaxy A7 (2018) compare. Detailed specs can be found in our devices section.
