Samsung Galaxy A03s Review

In 2021, the South Korean company Samsung launched a new budget device. The features of the Samsung A03s are standard for its price range. However, this does not mean that it is not worth paying attention to before you finally evaluate it. This smartphone has its users and offers a good set of features for its price. Its display is the first thing that makes an impression. The efforts made by the manufacturer to improve the cameras are also highly valued.

Design

Samsung A03s has a plastic body, on the back of which we see an attractive matte textured surface. The device lies comfortably in the palm of the hand, does not slip, and no fingerprints remain.

On the back, the camera unit, which consists of 3 modules and an LED flash, attracts the eye. There are no visually non-standard solutions.

If you know Samsung's budget series A, then the front panel of Samsung A03s will seem familiar. We see three thin frames around the perimeter of the device and a wider bottom frame. The slot is V-shaped and the front camera is positioned in it.

The device weighs almost 200 grams, which is expected at a thickness of 9.1 mm. Samsung A03s is available in three colors - blue, black and white.

Display

The smartphone is equipped with a 6.5-inch PLS LCD matrix, HD + resolution, 1600 x 720 pixels. Despite the low resolution, the image is clear and detailed. If you want, you can turn on dark mode. The Eye Comfort option, formerly known as the blue light filter, is also available.

For convenience, there is an option to change the size and style of the font, zoom the screen, turn on the Edge panel and more.

With Samsung A03s you will be able to enjoy a variety of content - videos, photos, texts, games and more. The large and colorful screen delights the eyes with expressiveness and sufficient brightness.

Productivity

Samsung A03s runs on an 8-core MediaTek Helio P35 processor combined with 3 or 4 GB of RAM, depending on the modification. The PowerVR GE8320 is responsible for the graphics. Internal storage is 32 or 64 GB. It can be expanded using a memory card.

The factory operating system is Android 11 and the interface is One UI 3.1 Core. The device supports 3G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, built-in Bluetooth 5.0.

An additional plus for the user is the fingerprint scanner built into the start button on the Samsung A03s and the facial recognition function. No NFC module support.

Cameras

Samsung A03s will delight you with a triple rear camera and a single front. The rear camera consists of a 13 MP main module and two 2 MP ones, one for macro shots and the other for a depth sensor. Photos can be 10x zoom. An LED flash is also available.

It is noteworthy that the macro camera creates a natural bokeh effect on the photos, allowing the objects on them to stand out in the background.

The front camera in turn is 5-megapixel. She is doing well with her task. Offers a familiar set of shooting modes. Video recording with the Samsung A03s has a resolution of 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second.

Autonomous work

This budget model from Samsung has a non-removable Li-Po battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh and a USB Type-C port. It does not support fast charging technology, which can be considered a minus by some users. With moderate use, you can count on up to two days before you need to recharge.

Conclusion

Samsung A03s is a basic smartphone with modern features. No supernatural possibilities can be expected from him. The device is suitable for users who are not demanding. The large and clear screen offers enjoyable video watching, photos and gaming. The processor maintains a good level of performance for lighter games. The large battery provides satisfactory battery life.

With the help of a conveniently located fingerprint scanner you will keep your data away from prying eyes. It works instantly and you will not waste unnecessary time to proceed to the desired tasks.

Samsung A03s is suitable for users who generate a lot of videos and photos. An additional 1 TB memory card slot is an undeniable advantage.

On the downside of the smartphone, we can not fail to mention the low resolution of the display and the mediocre quality of the photos. By today's standards, the lack of fast charging technology is palpable, as is the NFC module.
