Samsung Galaxy M20 EUR166.98

Been looking around for a replacement mobile as I broke my current one during the lockdown.

Found the Samsung Galaxy M20 on Amazon Spain @ EUR 159.99 + 6.99 shipping
It says envivo gratis, but I think that only accounts for the Spanish mainland.

Can't really argue with a Samsung M20 @ 166.98 (incl. of shipping).

Note- this is the 4Gb RAM/64Gb ROM black version only- other colours or specs are more expensive.

Ordered one this morning as a replacement for my wifes Nokia 7 plus.

Looks great value for the money and a great battery in it.

Use an A20E as a work phone which is the cheaper version of the M20. Very solid handset.

Its seem like a lot of new phone it has no headphone jack, might be a deal breaker for some.
The M30s for 199eur could be better value?

Is this a brand new phone or refurbished? I'm looking to replace my s7 as the battery is going and can't justify the price of an s10 but this looks similar spec to the s7.

Brandnew- warranty is with Amazon, who are very easy to deal with.

I can't comment on how this compares to an S7- other than batterywise- you should get 2 days out of this- whereas the wifey never gets more than 14-16 hours on her S7.

Only downside- its shipping from Spain- and in the current climate it could very well take its own sweet time getting here.

I meant to say it's similar in spec to the M30s which is what I'm thinking of getting. For €200 I think I'll take a chance, did you order the M20? How long was delivery?

Anyone have this phone now and willing to share any opinions on it. Looks like a great phone, and still available for that price.

Arrived today.
First impressions- my 9 year old did a 2 hour video call with two of her friends from school, and the battery was still over 80% (though the phone was running hot). Photo quality decent in bright sunlight (this afternoon)- can't speak for what its low light photography is like.
Wifi is very decent on it- parts of the house that are normally blackspots have ok signal strength (and it happily picked up our home network from out in the carpark).
Screen quality is decent (from someone moving from a Motorola G7+)
Notch is less pronounced than on a Motorola- but still very noticeable

Moving from a Motorola G7+ its a definitive improvement but I'm guessing the improvement is in battery life and to a lesser extent screen quality.

I'm happy with it (so far)- hopefully it stays that way.

This is down to 140 + 6 euro postage now, blue or black available.

Edit: apologies 150 total. Postage is 8 euro, and phone goes up to 142 when delivery is to Ireland.
