Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A04s

74.7% Samsung Galaxy A04s smartphone review - Inexpensive phone with scarce memory | Notebookcheck
Samsung's entry-level phone gets a makeover and has also improved in some aspects compared to the predecessor. However, the competition has not slept and some are cheaper and ahead in terms of features. Can the Galaxy A04s still keep up?

Samsung makes some of the best, and most expensive, mobile phones in the world. Even their semi-expensive mid-range phones are mostly high quality and very popular. But something seems to be happening when the Korean manufacturer is forced to turn the tables on the budget class. Then Samsung doesn’t do nearly as well. Last year I tested the mediocre Galaxy A13. This year I couldn’t get hold of the sequel Galaxy A14, but instead had to check out its little sibling Galaxy A04s. I have no idea what the S stands for, and there is no “regular” Galaxy A04 does not exist. It is at least a small step below the Galaxy A13, and most other budget mobiles I’ve tested, with a recommended price just below £140, though you can find it for less if you shop around.

Samsung Galaxy A04s Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
For the upcoming 2023, the Samsung Galaxy A04s can consider a great choice in the entry-level segment. It got a simple design, necessary specs, 4G connectivity, presentable photos and video recording options, a pretty clean UI, and decent battery life on top. Although, there are a few flaws such as lower resolution, less bright display, average video recording, and so on. An alternative option for this phone could be Honor Play 40 Plus but it cost a little more, even though it’s a slightly older phone, it’s a totally worth-it deal if, for some reason, you don’t like this A04s in the first place. But the fact can’t be denied that this phone is released at a quite affordable price range and some downsides can be overlooked once in a while. Hopefully, the phone is available on the global stage so that you won’t face any problems purchasing this phone.

The phone's performance is subpar, and the storage space provided by the base memory configuration is inadequate. It could work for someone who is mainly interested in making calls or staying in touch. But for more demanding use cases, we find it hard to recommend. With a low max brightness and low resolution, laggy software experience, and slow charging, there are better options out there - some even coming from Samsung's own camp.

6.50":

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.
