Samsung Galaxy A02s Review

Samsung offers a wide variety of budget smartphones. Every year its range increases with new models, in which new functions, new design solutions, etc. appear. At the end of 2020, the world saw the Samsung A02s, which combines performance and low cost. It also has fast charging technology.

Design

Traditionally, the South Korean company strives to follow the basic design features of its devices. Sometimes, however, more drastic changes are needed. We see these in the Galaxy A series. If you look at the Samsung A02s, you notice that it looks fresh and its colors are modern.

The matte body attracts attention because it does not show fingerprints so clearly. Samsung A02s is available in three colors - black, white and red. Its back panel and frame are made of plastic, which is pleasant to the touch. The front side is covered with glass, and in its upper part, right in the middle, the front camera is positioned.

The back makes an impression with several things - the interesting drawing and the block of cameras located on the left.

In terms of dimensions, the Samsung A02s may seem slightly thick and heavy. It weighs almost 200 grams.

Display

This budget phone is equipped with an attractively large 6.5-inch Infinity-V display, on which you will ideally watch videos, photos and text documents. The display has an HD+ resolution, and the small frames provide a good impression when using it. The aspect ratio is 20: 0 and the pixel density per inch is 270. On the entire front surface, the screen occupies 81.8%.

What may disappoint you slightly about the Samsung A02s is the insufficient brightness of the screen. You can feel it when you are outside and the sun is shining.

While this phone doesn't have all the advantages of Samsung's more expensive models, it boasts a beautiful screen that gives it an edge over competitors in the same price range.

Productivity

The well-chosen technical characteristics of the Samsung A02s taken together contribute to the performance of the model. With a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor consisting of 8 Cortex-A53 cores with a maximum clock speed of 1.8 GHz, Adreno 506 graphics accelerator and 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, you can count on fast program startup and smooth operation of resource-intensive games at minimal graphics settings. The selected IPS display contributes to a good gaming experience. The internal storage of Samsung A02s according to the modification can be 32 GB or 64 GB. If your memory starts to run low, you can expand it at any time with a microSD card up to 1TB, which has a separate slot.

By default, the Samsung A02s runs on the Android 10 operating system.

Camera

Samsung A02s is equipped with a triple main camera, whose main module is 13 MP, wide-angle and has autofocus. It comes with an LED flash and two 2-megapixel modules, which are not suitable for evening photos, as the shots are poor in detail and there is a lot of noise. Modern in the bright part of the day will delight you with natural colors. One photomodule is tasked with taking macro photos, and the other measures depth to enjoy a bokeh effect.

The 5-megapixel front camera offers decent selfies. It is ideal for video calls, and thanks to the typical set of shooting modes, you can experiment for days.

With Samsung A02s you can shoot videos with a resolution of 1080 pixels at the standard 30 frames per second.

Autonomous work

Under the nice case of Samsung A02s is a non-removable battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. It will easily provide you with up to two days of autonomous work. With more economical use - even more. The updated operating system increases the positive feedback from the device. This is why you can easily overlook the absence of an NFC chip. Samsung has also provided 15W fast charging technology so you can take advantage of the Samsung A02s again as soon as possible.

Conclusion

Samsung A02s is a good choice for a device if you are a fan of the South Korean brand. This budget smartphone offers basic functionality without unnecessary flagship options. It impresses with a well-made case in several colors, a decent set of cameras, technology for fast recharging of the battery and performance that allows you to play heavier games.

As for the screen, it may not be super bright, but it is quite large and with juicy colors. A definite plus of the Samsung A02s is the ability to increase its storage by 1TB!
