Samsung Galaxy M30s SuperAmoledDisplay
Samsung Galaxy M30s SuperAmoledDisplay Samsung’s Galaxy M series of phones has been a major success in the Indian market. The Galaxy M20 turned out to be the most value-for-money budget phone from the Korean giant
Samsung Galaxy M30s SuperAmoledDisplay Samsung released the Galaxy M30, which brought a couple of upgrades, including a Super AMOLED display and an extra rear camera, over the Galaxy M20.
Samsung’s mid-year refresh of the Galaxy M30 came last month in India as the Galaxy M30s. The smartphone comes in two variants. Both these models are available through Amazon India and Samsung’s own online e-store. Th+e base model with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage is kept at Rs 13,999, although Samsung says that it is a special introductory price. But I got the Rs 16,999 variant of the M30s, which offers 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The Galaxy M30s has got a few upgrades over its predecessor in the battery department, camera and performance. But is it worth the purchase? Read my full review to find out.
The Galaxy M30s comes with the Exynos 9611 chipset, which seems to be the same as the Galaxy A50’s Exynos 9610, along with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage. The M30s also gets a design update, mainly in the way the rear cameras and flash module are placed. The rest is pretty much the same as the Galaxy M30. There’s a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, 5MP and 8MP depth and ultra-wide rear cameras, a 16MP front camera, 15W fast charging, and a physical rear-facing fingerprint sensor.
For the Galaxy M30s design, Samsung has switched things up a bit for the rear panel. Like the Galaxy M30, there’s a two-tone gradient finish at the back, but while the M30’s rear panel changed color towards the bottom of the phone, the M30s has like a 70:30 vertical split. The blue variant that Samsung sent us turns green on the side, and the company has also added tiny little dots that shimmer when the light hits them. Frankly, that shimmer makes the phone look cheap,
The Galaxy M30s also comes with Game Booster, an upgraded version of Samsung’s Game Tools that debuted on the Note 10. Game Booster has much of the same functionality – recording gameplay video and taking screenshots, blocking notifications for incoming calls and disabling auto brightness while a game is running, locking navigation bar buttons, and saving power when the device is locked while a game is running. But it adds two important functions: measuring device temperature and how much battery time you’ll have to play a game.
Coming to the triple-camera setup of the Samsung Galaxy M30s, it has been upgraded as well. Samsung has used its 48-megapixel primary ISOCELL GM2 sensor in the M30s, which is a huge jump over the 13-megapixel sensor seen on the M30. The other two lens in the setup are the 5-megapixel depth camera, and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens with a 123-degree field of view. On the front, the smartphone gets a 16-megapixel selfie camera in the notch.
Overall, the Galaxy M30s is a decent package which mainly kills the competition with its massive 6,000mAh battery. That said, the phone’s processing is just about decent. But the camera performance falls short from the competitive smartphones like Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro, Realme 5 Pro and Mi A3.
