Samsung has been busy revamping its A-series line up and has launched around 7 phones in that lineup. In the meanwhile, the M series is also projected as a budget-friendly series. Some phones have more or less the same features with minor differences. The abundance of phones might make your choices a little difficult but we are here to help you out with that. Keep reading our review to find if Galaxy M30s should be your preference.
The design is the one aspect M30s has had major improvements in. The build is otherwise very similar to A30. There is also a two gradient finish available on the back panel which adds a classier and premium touch to the phone. M30s has a great grip that helps with one hand usage. There are a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB type C port on the phone. It’s quite nice to see Samsung being consistent with providing a USB type C port on almost all its budget phones and setting the trend right.
A lot of phone manufacturers have been cutting down the cost for budget phones by excluding the USB C port and offering a compromising micro USB port even while the industry is clearly changing this. M30s might not be the loudest on hearing though, as there is only speaker grill available. Some users will also appreciate the lack of a Bixby dedicated button on the M30s. There is a fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone as well. The display is also impressive with a 6.4-inch super AMOLED screen.
The Galaxy M30s has a triple camera setup mounted on the rear, stacked vertically. The first sensor is of 13MP, second of 5MP (ultra-wide), and the third is a 5MP depth sensor. The front camera is 16MP and has an aperture of f/2.0. The camera reviews suggest that the photos are correctly balanced and do not feel over-processed. Outdoor photos in light have better quality than indoor shots but the overall camera unit functions well.
The Galaxy M30s has a number of similar features with the A30. The problem here it makes little sense to release these extremely similar phones and announcing new phones with better specs in the same lineup, and only slightly more expensive. Phones like the Galaxy A30 and M30s do end up getting lost in the crowd as there are simply too many similar phones. The only major difference between the A30 and M30s is that it sports an improved exterior design and battery life. The phone is a nice little addition in the Samsung family and if you’re considering to buy a mid-range phone then the M30 is a better option than the A30.
The Galaxy M30s is a perfect phone if you are willing to get a device that can handle long hours of gaming, camera use, and streaming. Which is apart from the usual social media use. The battery life is pretty impressive and allows you to make full use of all the features. The overall performance is fine, but the camera may not be all that exciting.
