Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A04

66% Samsung Galaxy A04 Review: A Nearly Decent Budget Smartphone
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
Coming to the conclusion, the Samsung Galaxy A04 is the one to go for those looking for a nice display and capable camera with a budget tagline. I found the software experience to be average due to the Helio P35 combo. If only, Samsung had opted for a better SoC here. And I wish it featured a fingerprint scanner. Still, the experience isn’t too bad either. After all, the phone is designed for starters and basic users. Except for the Helio P35, its design, and display, to the battery, is worth the price. Content watching is also pleasing with its warm tones. So, the phone is good to go for those who want a basic experience with light gaming. Samsung Galaxy A04 provides an appreciable camera performance in this budget segment. Its warm-tone display is also good for multimedia usage. But the Helio P35 is kinda outdated and ruins the OneUI experience. By the way, the battery life is great though. Is it a good choice for the sub-15k bracket? Yes, for those seeking a basic smartphone experience!

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

Samsung Group employed 489,000 people in 2014 and is one of the world's largest companies in terms of revenue and market strength. The name Samsung means "Three Stars" in Korean and represents the three sons of the company's founder. The company was founded in 1938 as a grocery store. With its subsidiary Samsung Electronics, founded in 1969, Samsung took up the production of electrotechnical items, focusing on consumer electronics and household appliances at an early stage. Other branches in which the large corporation is active include mechanical engineering, automobiles (Hyundai), insurance, wholesale, real estate and leisure. Samsung manufactures a wide range of electronic products, including smartphones, televisions, home appliances and semiconductors. The company's Galaxy line of smartphones is one of the most popular in the world. Samsung is also a major player in the semiconductor industry, making memory chips and processors for many other electronics manufacturers.

66%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
