Recently we reviewed Galaxy M30 and I think company need to work on some department on that device but just after that device Samsung launched Samsung Galaxy A30 and I feel that this device might solve some problem that I am having with galaxy M30, so let’s go deep down and find out pros & cons
Samsung Galaxy A30: Quick Specifications
First of all, let me tell you the full specification because some of you might don’t know the specification.
The device features 6.40-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED panel with 2340 pixels by1080 (19.5:9) and yes it has ‘ U Shaped’ display notch, Galaxy A30 is powered by Exynos 7904 which is built on 14 nm technology with Mali-G71 MP2 GPU inside, it runs on the latest One UI based on Android 9.0 (Pie).
The phone is available in only 4 GB of Ram and 64 GB internal storage and you can also expand storage up to 512 GB, it also has a dedicated slot for micro SD card expansion that means you can put 1 SD card & 2 SIM card at the same time
A30 comes with the dual rear 16 MP primary sensor + 5 MP ultra-wide sensor, on the front side it has 16 MP (F/2.2) selfie Camera. The device is packed with 4,000 mAh battery with 15W fast charging support which is included in the box
In the box, you will get Earphones, Travel Adapter, USB Cable, Ejection Pin and User Manual and smartphone itself
The Samsung Galaxy A30 comes with 6.40 inch Super AMOLED panel that means the picture quality is going to be better than LED panel and yes it also has ‘ U Shaped’ display notch.
So, for now, I haven’t found any issue regarding display quality and I watched tons of movies as well as play games like PUBG, Ashplant 9 & modern combat 5, and while playing games or watching movies I haven’t face any problem in display quality
This is the same display that is present on Galaxy M30 but one thing I noticed in Galaxy A30 is, it has dedicated auto-brightness sensor that means A30 will give better & quick display visibility under sunlight, on the other hand, Galaxy M30 also has auto-brightness sensor but it uses a selfie camera that means its genuine one because Samsung did it some software trick to get the auto-brightness sensor
Overall A30 has a wonderful display and you will not regrade after buying this smartphone.
It has dual rear 16 MP main sensor with F/1.7 aperture and 5 MP ultra-wide sensor with F/2.2 aperture, the device can shoot video up-to only 1080 30 FPS and as I mention on Galaxy M30 reviews that Exynos 7904 soc supports video up-to 4K but still Samsung haven’t enabled that features yet and yes it can be enabled by software update but it’s a Samsung, so I don’t think the company will provide that option.
On the front side, it has a single 16 MP selfie shooter with F/2.2 aperture
Galaxy A30 has dual camera setup and Galaxy M30 has triple camera setup and people who don’t know anything technical about the camera than they will buy Galaxy M30 reason for that is triple camera setup but keep in mind more camera does not mean good camera quality like you can see Pixel devices and Google used only a single camera and turns out that Pixel device has best cameras
That means Samsung Galaxy A30 has slide better camera and it’s all because of F/1.7 aperture. So yes if you want little bit better camera than of course you can buy this device but don’t make a decision right now because we have a lot to talk further
Samsung Galaxy A30 is powered by Exynos 7904 which is built on 14 nm technology with Mali-G71 MP2 GPU inside, it runs on the latest One UI based on Android 9.0 (Pie). I will not say too much about performance because I already said everything in Galaxy M30 review but of course, I will put some stuff downside so you can recall
If we compare Exynos 7904 with Snapdragon 636 than any day 636 soc will perform better and yes both the chip is built on 14 nm technology. We also played games like PUBG, Modern combat 5 and ashplant 9 as well and all those games can be played very nicely but when you play those games for while then you may notice some frame drops and it may leg after 1 or 2 hours of Gameplay ”
As I mention Galaxy A30 is not for everyone because it will not give you the best performance when it’s come to gaming department and I am not saying it has a very bad chip but right now their tons of smartphone available in the market and those devices are much better than Galaxy A30 but of course end of it’s your decision
I think Galaxy A30 is for those people who only want Samsung device or people who only prefer Brand instant of better performance, now it’s up to you
A30 is packed with 4,000 mAh battery with 15W fast charging support. It will long last for whole one day but if you are a very heavy user then you might need to charge at night but if you are like me who don’t use smartphone too much then yes it will long last for 1 and a half-day, the device also supports 15W fast charging that means if in case you consume all the power than you can charge your galaxy A30 very quickly
The smartphone is only available in 4 GB of Ram & 64 GB internal storage and it will cost you Rs 16,990 which is two thousand higher than Galaxy M30 (Rs 14,990).
Conclusion: Samsung Galaxy A30
As I mentioned earlier, if you are one of those people who only like Samsung device or brand-conscious than any day I will prefer you galaxy A30 but if you are like me who don’t give a damn about the brand than go with Redmi Note 7 Pro or you can also wait for Realme 3 Pro which is going to launch in April 2019
If you want to choose between Galaxy A30 and M30 than any day go with galaxy M30, the reason I mention in this particular article
I hope I mention all the thing that you need to know about this device but of course, if I miss something then you know what to do right, just let me know in the comment section below
