Which One is Best for you?
I will keep it straight and simple, as both the smartphones falls in different price bracket so choosing the smartphone becomes quite difficult, I will like to answer this question with an example.
If I am on tight budget and looking for a smartphone somewhere near to price 7,500 INR then my perfect choice will be Samsung M10, I will not try to spend some extra bucks for 3GB RAM variant of M10. Reason 3GB RAM variant comes with a price tag of 8,990 INR spending 9,000 INR on M10 does not make sense it’s better to lose 2000 INR from your pocket and go with M20 base variant because it has new upgraded processor, good camera, bigger battery, quite big screen and comes with LPDDR4 RAM.
If your budget is for 9,000 INR and if you do not want to go with any other brands like Redmi, Realme. Then we recommend you Galaxy M20 its totally worth spending some extra bucks on Galaxy M20.
In day to day usage you wont feel any major difference if you are not an heavy user but you really play around your smartphones with many apps and heavy games then surely M10 will not able to handle it you will notice lag in the device. If you like to play more games you are into much of social media then M20 is the best choice for you just go with it and it if the budget do not allow then we surely ask you to wait for any sale on amazon where you will surely get an amazing price.
