Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy M30

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.

80% Samsung Galaxy M30 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
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.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
