Samsung Galaxy A01 Review

In the Galaxy A family, you'll find both powerful camera phones with large screens and simple, compact models at an affordable price. Get ready to meet the Samsung Galaxy A01. 

Design

This device is strongly distinguished from other smartphones of the South Korean company. It is not expensive, which is a determinant of its construction and appearance. They are simplistic. This does not mean that the Samsung Galaxy A01 is unsympathetic. On the contrary. It offers a satisfyingly large screen, compactness and good craftsmanship. The body is made of matte plastic. Thanks to this practical material, the device always stays clean and neat. I.e. it is not mandatory to equip it with a case. 

The Samsung Galaxy A01 is available in three colours - black, blue and red. 

Display

The display diagonal of the Samsung Galaxy A01 is 5.7 inches. The resolution is HD+, 1520 x 720 pixels. The matrix itself is called PLS TFT LCD by the manufacturer. It provides wide viewing angles. 

Performance

According to some, the Samsung Galaxy A01 is only suitable for calls and SMS. If you give it a deeper look, you will doubt this claim. The smartphone is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chipset, running fast and smooth in virtually all applications. Of course, heavy gaming is not within its capabilities. The level of graphics in such cases should be kept to a minimum. 

Samsung has provided for the Samsung Galaxy A01 2 GB of RAM. If you run several applications at the same time, you may notice a slowdown. With the help of Samsung Members app, the user can clean the RAM with a snap of fingers. As for the internal memory, it is 16 GB with only 8.4 GB available. It is quite sufficient to install basic apps and a few games. If you're a fan of messengers and social networking, you should be at the ready to clear the cache regularly. For photos, videos and music it is desirable to use a microSD memory card. The maximum is 512 GB. 

Cameras

What are the photographic capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy A01? The main camera is a 13-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture. It is capable of taking decent photos for this price class of devices. Feel free to process and upload photos to social networks. The manufacturer has also provided a smart HDR mode that corrects photos when shooting in more complex conditions. 

To the rescue of the main camera comes a 2-megapixel module that measures depth. Thanks to it, you can change the depth of field in Live Focus mode. 

The front camera is a 5-megapixel. It's ideal for selfies with blurry backgrounds. It is also assigned the responsible task of facial unlocking the smartphone. In the Samsung Galaxy A01, which does not have a fingerprint scanner, this feature is welcome. 

Finally, we should mention the video recording capabilities - Full HD at 30 frames per second. For most users, this is enough. 

Autonomous operation 

The battery capacity of the Samsung Galaxy A01 is modest - 3000 mAh, but taking into account the energy-efficient screen and modern processor, the user can count on almost two days. 

In the package there is a 5W charger. While the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 supports Quick Charge 3.0 standard fast charging technology, this feature is not available in the Galaxy A01. 

Conclusion 

The main advantage of the Samsung Galaxy A01 is compactness. The smartphone is comfortable, fast enough and feature rich.
