Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A03

74% Samsung Galaxy A03 Review – Cheerfully Cheap Cruiser Tested
Source: Hitech Century English
The Samsung Galaxy A03 is an exemplary example of a budget phone with a large display and a huge battery along with the added bonus of a 3.5mm audio jack and expandable memory via a dedicated microSD card slot. For RM549, you’re getting a well built, affordable phone that is a solid shot across the bow for other budget phone vendors. The cheaper variant does look tempting but it’s well worth the extra outlay to get more RAM and storage. The Samsung Galaxy A03 epitomises the ideals of a budget phone with essential features that include a large display and long battery life with a fair performance to price ratio at a modest price tag.

The Samsung Galaxy A03’s main selling point would be its long battery life and other in-between custom features.

For example, if they launch a cheap phone on the Indian offline market, it will sell like crazy as it is a well-known brand. The same story also applies to other countries. But, we didn’t want our readers to waste their money on something when you can still consider alternative options that provide an exceptional features at a similar price point or a higher level. The Tecno Camon 18T is worth your money, but it costs a little more. But still, if you’re looking for something in Samsung, you have the Galaxy A03 core to check out.
