A good impression is that the device is equipped with functions to adjust the screen to your own comfort. You can change the font size, scale the screen, etc. In addition, protection of the screen against accidental touch is provided.
Another useful feature is the presence of the "Eye Comfort" option. It is a filter for blue light and protects eyesight during prolonged interaction with the smartphone. The display can be set to black or light mode.
For its price, the Galaxy A03 has no reason to be blamed for its features and functionality. This device has a specific target group. A good purchase for anyone who is not excited about modern features and technologies, but wants to have a modern device in hand. That is why the Galaxy A03 will be preferred as a gift for children or adults.
