Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A30s

79% Samsung Galaxy A30s Smartphone Review: A breath of fresh air with a playful design | Notebookcheck
The Samsung Galaxy A30s is comparatively affordable but features a design that should distinguish it from many of its contemporaries. While the Galaxy A30s looks the part, our tests will reveal whether it can keep up with the competition.
Samsung Galaxy A30S and Galaxy A50S brings triple cameras and slick design to Malaysia
Source: Hitech Century English
Externally, the Galaxy A30s and Galaxy A50s look quite similar to each other with a design that’s almost a spitting image of each other including a nigh identically sized 6.4-inch display but they vary substantially in almost every detail with the Galaxy A50s packing better hardware. In general, both phones also notably come with under-display fingerprint readers, triple rear camera arrays, 15W fast charging, 4,000mAh sized batteries and Samsung Pay support.
