Samsung Galaxy A30 Pros & Cons
- Attractive display and design – The Galaxy A30 is an attractive phone. This can be largely attributed to its infinity display with minimum bezels. The U-shaped water drop notch at the top makes it more attractive than many phones that have the trapezoidal notch. The 6.4-inch 1080p AMOLED display is obviously an eye-magnet when the phone is on.
- Ample RAM and storage – This phone has two storage options. The first option is 3GB of RAM and 32 GB on-board storage. These are sufficient for a mid-level user. Those who need more can go for the 4GB RAM, 64GB on-board storage option.
- Dedicated microSD card slot – The A30 has a dedicated memory card slot. If you have to use two SIM cards, you don’t have to worry about sacrificing the use of a microSD card.
- Dual rear cameras – The cameras of this phone are almost the same as those of the Samsung Galaxy J8. It features dual 16MP + 5MP cameras on the rear and an impressive 16MP shooter at the front. These cameras make it one of the best affordable camera phones you can buy.
- 15W fast charging – You can always charge the Samsung Galaxy A30 quickly using its 15W fast charging adapter.
- Plastic body build – There are cheaper phones, like Infinix Note 5, that come with metal bodies. Metal is more durable than plastic.
- Pricier than phones from other brands with similar specifications – Price of the Galaxy A30 3GB, 32GB option is slightly higher than 20,000 Kenyan Shillings. Phones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro have superior specs but sell at lower prices than the Galaxy A30.
