Samsung Exynos processors have never been particularly strong at work performance, and the Samsung Exynos 7904 is no exception. It was 13% slower than the Redmi Note 7 which uses the 2-year old Qualcomm Snapdragon 660.
Gaming Performance – 3DMark
We then tested the Samsung Galaxy M20’s gaming performance using 3DMark, using the Ice Storm Unlimited test.
|Ice Storm Unlimited||Xiaomi Redmi Note 7||Realme 3||OPPO R17 Pro||Samsung Galaxy M20|
|Graphics Test 1||164.1 fps||119.9 fps||136.5 fps||112.0 fps|
|Graphics Test 2||105.4 fps||65.3 fps||45.8 fps||39.8 fps|
|Physics Test||63.9 fps||74.3 fps||44.5 fps||40.9 fps|

The Samsung Exynos 7904 was not fast at games either, with its dual-core ARM Mali-G71 GPU.
It also comes with a nice complement of cameras. Its 8 MP front camera boasts a fast, bright f/2.0 lens. In the back, it has an excellent 13 MP main camera, with a very useful secondary ultra-wide angle 5 MP camera.
However, its muted colour makes its chassis look like a budget device, a far cry from the premium look of the cheaper Realme 3!
We also wish Samsung added electronic image stabilisation to their camera. It would have made the Galaxy M20 (MY | US) a more compelling device. After all, the Redmi Note 7 offers electronically-stabilised video recording at the same price point!
The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) is a good effort by Samsung to defend its lower mid-range market share. However, it will find strong headwinds from Chinese smartphones like the Redmi Note 7 and the Realme 3.
