Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy M30

66% Samsung Galaxy M30 review
Source: GSM Arena English
All things considered, the Galaxy M30 is great all-rounder and makes a very compelling case for someone who doesn't find 3D gaming or camera performance particularly important. You still get to enjoy a very nice display and the outstanding battery life. There are also no deal-breakers in any other important aspect of the device and it has a reasonable price tag.

60% Samsung Galaxy M30 review: Dial M for money well spent
Source: Gadget Show English
With the Galaxy M30 the company wants to tap in the young smartphone users. The smartphone comes with a price tag of Rs 17,990 and will compete against the recently launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. The smartphone offers a full HD and bright display which is not common in the other budget smartphones. Along with this, the massive 5000 mAh battery with fast charging can be a deal breaker for many. The triple rear camera is also a good proposition but is not the high point of the smartphone. Customers who were looking for a Samsung smartphone in this price segment can definitely consider buying the Galaxy M30.

The Samsung Galaxy M30 is similar to its cousin, the Galaxy A30, in a lot of ways, including performance and camera quality. Where it feels like a step up is exterior design and battery life. Where it feels like a step down is software. It’s still a pretty good buy for Rs 14,990.

80% Samsung Galaxy M30 Review: Gunning for the Note?
Source: Tech PP English
Priced at Rs. 14,990 for the 4 GB/ 64 GB variant and Rs. 17,990 for the 6 GB/ 128 GB variant, the Samsung Galaxy M30 packs quite a bit of punch of spec sheet numbers and features for the price. Yes, it faces a lot of heat from the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro, which is the M30’s biggest competitors in the market right now, but the Galaxy M30 itself has got a few very neat tricks in the bag to give Xiaomi a headache to deal with. The device comes with a great display, good cameras and decent UI and battery, all of which make the Samsung Galaxy M30 a very worthy contender in its segment. It may not be right on top of the sub Rs. 15,000, but is definitely one of the best in the price range.

Samsung Galaxy M30 Review

With a great display and good battery life, the Samsung Galaxy M30 is a good choice if you watch a lot of videos on your phone. Plus, it also has Widevine L1 support for HD streaming, which is not a common thing in a budget smartphone. It also offers decent camera performance with triple-rear camera setup and is not a bad choice for a price of Rs. 14,999.

70% Samsung Galaxy M30 review: Attractive build and long battery life, but is it enough?
Source: The Indian Express English
Galaxy M30 packs an attractive build and design with a brilliant display and long battery life. The camera performance and general performance of the device are okay, but then in the under Rs 15,000 price range, users have now started expecting more given the kind of choices available in the market. The competition is really intense in this space.

Galaxy M30 review: A Galaxy M20 ‘Plus’ with meaningful additions
Source: Sam Mobile English
The way we see it, the Galaxy M30 feels like a Plus variant of the Galaxy M20 similar to how you have Plus and standard variants of Samsung’s flagships. It’s not just the RAM and storage that change. You also get a Super AMOLED display, an extra camera and higher-resolution selfies, and some design changes on the M30. On the top M30 model, you get more RAM (6GB) and internal storage (128GB), but that version is priced a bit too high for us to even consider in this review.

Samsung Galaxy M30 Review: Is this the best of Samsung you can get at this budget?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Samsung Galaxy M30 is probably one of the best-designed smartphones in this price band. The display certainly looks interesting and the camera performance in broad daylight is quite decent in our opinion. The battery is a strong talking point of this device, though it is not able to handle most of the high-end games effectively. The user interface seems to be dated now and the amount of bloatware and spammy notifications spoils the whole experience. That said, the phone looks like a good option for Samsung loyalists, but still faces stiff competition from the likes of XiaomI Redmi Note 7 Pro, Realme 3, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 and Nokia 6.1 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy M30 review: The reliable option
Source: Android Authority English
The Samsung Galaxy M30 marks the top end of the millennial-focused Galaxy M series and takes the Redmi Note 7 Pro head on as far as price is concerned. Between the better performance and camera capabilities, Xiaomi’s mid-range champion does look like the better device on paper.

80% Samsung Galaxy M30 review: Brand Samsung finally looks competitive under Rs 15,000
Source: India Today English
The Galaxy M-series seems to be getting better and better with each successive phone. With the Galaxy M30, Samsung nails almost every aspect that consumers are looking for in an affordable mid-range smartphone. It gets a stunning AMOLED display, which will be hard to beat by any other brand in this segment, a good-looking gradient design and a battery that doesn't quit. The performance and cameras are decent, but not the Galaxy M30's strongest suit. I feel the M30 misses out on a dedicated night mode that can help it truly take on the likes of the Redmi Note 7 Pro.

The Samsung Galaxy M30 is the third smartphone from Samsung in the M series, and is priced well at Rs. 14,990 for the 4GB RAM variant and 17,990 for the higher 6GB RAM variant. It is one of a few smartphones at this price to sport a vivid Super AMOLED panel, which we liked. We also found the big battery very helpful as we could stay away from the charger a lot longer than usual. The cameras are good in daylight but could do with a few tweaks for better low-light photography.

Galaxy M30 hands-on: Another budget hit on Samsung’s hands?
Source: Sam Mobile English
As mentioned at the beginning, the Galaxy M30 keeps some of the highlight Galaxy M20 features, like a 5,000 mAh battery with fast charging and the new Exynos 7904 chipset. Whether the overall experience will be considerably better for us to suggest spending more on the M30 instead of saving money by going for the M20 is something you will find out in our full review.

Samsung Galaxy M30 First Impressions: Can this be the Ace of Spades for Samsung?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The Samsung Galaxy M30 looks a polished device from the company. The phone is equipped with a new gradient design, which is pretty decent in our opinion and the inclusion of AMOLED display along with Infinity U screen gives an immersive experience. The camera performance looks decent and it would be interesting the overall performance of the Galaxy M30. As for the competition is concerned, the phone will face stiff competition with the likes of Nokia 6.1 Plus, Realm U1, Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and more.
