Samsung Galaxy A30 Review | Samsung Galaxy A30 Specifications and Features

Samsung's flagship smartphones have been popular among those who have the ability to buy them. But for the past few years, the company has not been as aggressive in the budget segment. The situation has changed this year. Samsung has tried to create A stir in the market from the new Galaxy M and Galaxy A series handsets.

After testing the Samsung Galaxy A50 (review) and Galaxy M30 (review), we came to the conclusion that these handsets, which are less than Rs 20,000, are worth buying. Now, the talk of Samsung's latest smartphone A30 the Samsung Galaxy, which to a large extent, challenges the Galaxy M9. It would be interesting to see how is its performance compared to the Galaxy M4? The answer to this question would be to know through review...

Samsung Galaxy A30 Design

Seen, the Samsung Galaxy A30 is a big phone. Samsung has a 6.4-inch display on the front panel of the Galaxy A 30 which comes with a thinner border. The bottom border is slightly wide. But it is not piercing the eyes. Galaxy A30 has a full-HD + Infiniti U display, like Galaxy A50 and Galaxy M30. The colors come vividly due to the Super AMOLED panel. Text and images come to an end. The company did not mention Gorilla Glass or any other glass protection. However, there are no scratch marks on the screen of this phone during the review.

The glossy side and the back panels look good in appearance but they have easy fingerprints. The phone is precisely slim. It does not have difficulty in the grip. The button on the right has been given a glossy treatment with the rest of the edges. The SIM Tray has two nano-SIM cards and space for microSD card (up to 512 GB). The speaker, space down to 3.5 mm headphone socket and USB type-C port.

Samsung Galaxy A30 Specifications and features

Like the Galaxy M30, the Samsung Galaxy A30 has also used an octa-core Axios 7904 processor. In the market, the Galaxy A 30 is available in only one variant that too with 4GB RAM and 64 GB storage variants. Samsung has not elaborated on the phone's specification on its website. But with the help of select Android Diagnostic apps, it is clear that the phone has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gyroscope, Hall sensor, Proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, compass, GPS, FM radio and USB-OTG.

The main difference between the two is that of the OS. While the Galaxy M4 runs on Samsung experience based on Android 8.1 Oreo, the Galaxy A 30 comes with Samsung's new one UI based on Android 9 pie. Our review unit had a security patch in February 2019.

Samsung Galaxy A30 performance, cameras, and battery life

The Galaxy A30 's performance in terms of normal chats and productivity apps. But the experience is not extremely smooth. Because the lag is realized when switching to Bixby home screen. Whether you open the Gallery app after taking pictures or the tab with Regents apps to switch between apps, it reflects the decrease.

For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel front camera with aperture f/ Is 2.0. In the light of day, it works correctly. Selfies are kinda soft captures from our choice. But the colors come good and the HDR also does the right thing while shooting adverse to the light. Here, too, there is the live focus. But the edge detection is weak. In low light, the selfie lacks diameter and the grass are clearly visible.

Our decision

Apart from the improved battery life, AMOLED display and build quality, the Samsung Galaxy A30 is nothing more special. The Galaxy M4 is only Rs 1,000 expensive, but its camera performance is better and it comes with a bigger battery, more RAM and storage. That too with the older Android OS. You may want to have 4 Gb/Galaxy M30. 64 GB variants can buy RS 2,000 cheaply.
