Review Samsung Galaxy A30:

Samsung Galaxy A30 is a feature packed phone that is available at just Rs.15,490. Samsung has opted for maximum display with slim borders in this model, only the chin area of the phone is thicker than the other sides. It’s 6.4-inch infinity U display has 1080×2340 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. This bigger screen helps in enhancing the screen view experience. Images to texts and gaming to web browsing pops with vivid colors. Alongside, the phone is featured with water drop notch where a front camera of 16MP fits into it.

The seamless performance is provided by the Samsung Exynos 7904 chipset, paired with Mali G71 MP2 GPU. This GPU gives butter-flow experience for gaming. Besides, this phone has got an octa-core processor with the clock speed of 1.8GHz, that makes multi-tasking ease.

The smartphone experience can be taken to the next level by the Android Pie OS. Also, the phone helps to store photos, videos, files, documents all in one place as it comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.

This phone is packed with the mighty Li-polymer battery with the capacity of 4000mAh, and it stays powered up for a whole day on a single charge, reducing the risk of carrying wire. Besides, it also supports fast charging. The 15W quick charge feature and the USB type-C port helps the phone to get charged within no time.

When it comes to the camera, the phone houses a dual rear camera with that comes in the combination of a 16MP primary lens and a 5MP secondary sensor. There is also a 16MP front camera to click selfies. The primary sensor has f/1.7 physical aperture, whereas, the secondary sensor has an f/2.2 aperture. The full HD videos can be recorded with good quality, but there is a lack of stabilization which is quite disappointing. There are many contrasting features associated to the camera in this model to improve its overall performance like HDR, panorama, scene optimizer, pro and live focus (portrait of Samsung), however low-light performance lacks good quality in live focus mode. On the other hand, selfie camera comes with f/2.0 aperture, even this works well at HDR and live focus modes. Unlike the rear camera, the front camera lags behind in edge detection.

The phone looks like glass finishing, but actually, it is made of plastic. But it never compromises in the outlook, it attracts the users easily by its amazing color options like black, blue, red and white. This slender phone looks glossy and has the same glossy treatment for the buttons on right. The sides of the phone also give room for the speaker, USB type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

A fingerprint sensor rests on the rear side of the phone that helps in instant unlocking of the phone, also it keeps the intruders away. Furthermore, there are added sensors like accelerometer, gyro sensor, proximity sensor, and compass.
