“All of this would count for nothing if the quality of its output wasn’t up to scratch, but there’s no cause for concern there. Colours are realistic, illumination is balanced and sharp contrasts were a consistent feature of my tests.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Pocket-lint reviews the Samsung NX20 and writes;
“This is a decent camera, and it’s the high-resolution, low ISO shots that it can produce that make it a real winner. Just like the NX200, it’s image quality that’s the biggest lure.”

Expertreviews reviews the Samsung NX20 and writes;
“The best thing about the Samsung NX20 is its image quality. Other cameras we’ve seen with massive resolutions have merely served to highlight the limitations of their lenses, but the NX20 delivered incredibly sharp details, surpassing the 24-megapixel Sony NEX-7.”

Rating: ★★★★½

Trustedreviews reviews the Samsung NX20 and writes;
“The Samsung NX20 is the first compact system camera to offer built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, but that’s far from the only reason to consider it. Its EVF is a vast improvement over Samsung’s previous efforts, the vari-angle LCD monitor is immensely useful, and overall image quality is excellent.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Digitalversus reviews the Samsung NX20 and writes;
“The video mode is relatively comprehensive. It films 1080p HD video at 25p saved as an .MP4 file. Quality is good, with a nice, crisp image. Dynamic range holds up well but some rolling shutter effects are visible with fast movement (vertical lines end up looking slightly curved).”
