SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,000 (2019)

Samsung Galaxy M20

Sort of an honourable mention, but Samsung’s Galaxy M20 makes an appearance on this guide due to its large 5,000mAh battery which can be charged at 15W via USB-C. It’s also the first Samsung smartphone to feature the Infinity-V display, which is essentially a water-drop notched display—this gives the M20 an almost all-screen appearance.

Its 6.3″ display isn’t Super AMOLED, which is a touch disappointing, while it runs on a mid-range 14nm Exynos 7904 Octa-Core processor. The M20 comes with a respectable 4GB of RAM and has 64GB of storage which is expandable via microSD. It’s a dual-shooter at the rear—a 13MP f/1.9 + 5MP ultra wide-angle camera setup, while the front gets an 8MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.

Honestly, it’s not the best smartphone you’re gonna see, even in the budget–midrange price bracket, but for RM799, you get a pretty large screen with a subtle notch, respectable specs under the hood, and that gigantic battery.
