Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A01

68% Galaxy A01 review: Bare-bones smart phone for the budget conscious
Source: CNet English
The Galaxy A01 is a no-fuss, low-priced Android phone that is the cheapest member of Samsung's A-series of budget phones. Priced at $150 (though we've seen it on sale for as low as $100 unlocked from Samsung), the phone's bare-bones hardware and features -- like its plain design and low-resolution display-- aren't much to get excited about. But the handset covers the basics well enough that, for its low price, it should be a decent device to snap photos, check email, watch videos and, of course, make calls.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 505:

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 439: Lower mainstream octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 SoC clocked at up to 2 GHz and the Adreno 505 GPU, and a X9 LTE (Cat. 4/5 - 300 Mbps download) modem. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


68%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
