Despite belonging to the budget segment, the Galaxy M30 comes with a handful of attractive features, especially the beefy 5,000mAh battery, triple rear cameras, and more.
Samsung Galaxy M30 is completely sold online, which is said to aim for cutting the expense and applying for attractive promotions more easily.
Unbox the Galaxy M30
Because the Galaxy M30 is positioned in the affordable segment, its box is much simplified. In return, the device is still bundled with good quality earbud and a 15W quick charger like the flagship Galaxy S10. The Galaxy M30 is available in two color options including Gradation Black and Gradation Blue with an eye-catching gradient effect.
Galaxy M30 hardware is impressive in its price range, especially compared to previous Samsung phones. It sports a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with fullHD+ resolution, very high brightness, and beautiful colors that are not inferior to those of the Galaxy S10. Additionally, the screen-to-body-ratio reaches up to 84%.
Under the hood is an Exynos 7904 octa-core chipset, paired with dual-core Mali G71 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. The new OneUI interface and appls all ensure the device's smoothness.
In the camera department, instead of going for higher-resolution sensors, the Galaxy M30 is equipped with a third sensor that supports ultra-wide-angle shooting with a resolution of only 5MP. The 13MP primary camera comes with an aperture of f/1.9, and Live Focus support thanks to a 5MP depth sensor next to it. This setup is more than enough for users’ demand for taking photos to post on a regular social network.
On the front, the selfie camera is neatly housed in the U-shaped cut-out at the top bezel. The resolution of this camera reaches 16MP, offering very good quality, natural color, and sharper night shooting thanks to the f/2.0 aperture.
Another big plus point of the Galaxy M30 is the 5,000mAh battery, which is expected to last up to 2 days on one charge. The device currently runs Android 9.0 Pie with the June security patch and comes with the OneUI interface like the Galaxy S10 series.
The phone's 5000mAh battery packing fast charging support is a big plus point. And its beautiful OneUI interface offers smooth performance and many support features.
