The Samsung Galaxy A20 smartphone is powered by an Exynos 7884 chipset with a 1.6GHz octa-core CPU, Mali-G71 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
I tested its gaming performance using two of the most popular mobile games today – Mobile Legends and PUBG Mobile. Here are the resulting average framerate and device temperature measured using GameBench Pro.
Mobile Legends: Bang Bang doesn’t have its high frame rate mode available for the Samsung Galaxy A20. Nevertheless, I still tried to max out the graphics settings by setting it to high and turning on the other available options including character frame.
The resulting average frame rate is 30 fps. Meanwhile, the battery temperature remained below 36°C after an entire match.
PUBG Mobile automatically set the graphics quality to medium upon launching it for the first time on the Samsung Galaxy A20. I changed this to the highest settings available: HD graphics and high frame rate.
The average frame rate is a bit lower at 24 fps compared to the results in Mobile Legends but that’s normal since this game is more resource intensive. Thankfully, the thermal situation is well under control at 38°C only after a single game.
Samsung Galaxy A20 Gaming Tests Results
|Mobile Legends||High||30 fps|
|PUBG Mobile||HD||24 fps|
I am surprised that the Samsung Galaxy A20 performed slightly better in my gaming tests compared to the slightly pricier Samsung Galaxy A30.
A quick look at a comparison of the two smartphones’ specs sheet reveals the reason. The Samsung Galaxy A20 only has an HD+ display while the Samsung Galaxy A30 has an FHD+ display.
The difference is minimal though. The two have similar performance in Mobile Legends but the Samsung Galaxy A20 handles PUBG Mobile better.
