Samsung Galaxy A30 Review

Score: 9.49/10

Samsung Galaxy A30 is a great quality phone launched more than a year ago, packed with a big size 6.4-inches screen, a Octa-Core CPU running at 1.8 gigahertz, a 16 MP back facing camera and a 16 MP front-facing camera.

The Samsung Galaxy A30 is just 0.3 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest devices currently available. This phone only has 6.24" long, but it manages to hold a 6.4" screen. Samsung made this cellphoneavailable just in black, blue and white. Talking about its construction materials, this cellphone is made with Plastic . Samsung has made a really good job making the A30 as lightweight as 5.82 ounces.

This device includes a spectacular 1080 x 2340 6.4-inches display, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels composing the display.

Samsung ships this cellphone with a high performance Octa-Core processor ticking at 1800 MHz, packed into a Samsung Exynos 7 Octa 7904 chip and a huge 4 GB RAM. A great point of this cellphone is its 64 GB large internal memory and an external SD slot, which allows the user to install lots of applications, games, photos and videos without thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

This cellphone provides wi-fi connection (which it can provide to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G high speed connectivity and also HSPA+ internet connection (a bit slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone has dual sim cards so it can to use two different phone numbers or carriers at the same time.

This phone has two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 16 megapixels front side camera. this cellphone's back-facing camera has a maximum F1.7 aperture so it can take excellent pictures even in poor lighting environments. This cellphone also captures videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second.

This phone also includes a wide variety of interesting features as Fingerprint Reader, Facial unlock, Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth phones, computers and accessories), GPS Geolocation and Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone counts with a large 4000 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with a marvelous battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins losing capacity, even though with so much capacity you will probably replace this device before that happens.

If you want this phone mainly for social networks, need it for work, are looking for a phone to play games or you love taking photographs, you will definitely be very happy with it.
