Samsung Galaxy M30s Detailed Review

At the beginning of this year, Samsung brought new life to the world of mid-range smartphones with the M series. In the middle segment, not a day passes, it releases a new model. The M series that started with the Samsung Galaxy A10 continues with the Samsung Galaxy M30s. Reaching good sales figures with the Samsung M series, the company wants to be the leading company in the middle segment, while intimidating its rivals Xiaomi, Huawei and Oppo. Although the design is the same as the Samsung Galaxy M30, they went to improve the camera, processor, screen and battery, resulting in a more powerful smartphone.

  • 15.9 x 0.9 x 7.5 cm

  • polycarbonate
  • Drop Notch

There are drop notch thin bezels on the front and an unnecessarily thick ugly chin at the bottom.  The fingerprint reader, which we no longer see on current phones , is  located on the back of the phone. At the bottom of the smartphone are  3.5 mm headphone output , speaker grill, USB Type-C input. On the left side, there is   a triple hybrid SIM slot that allows inserting dual nano sim cards and microSD cards  for memory expansion  .

The thickness of the M30s has increased compared to the M30, as it has a 6000 mAh battery. The polycarbonate  plastic body design gave the phone a cheap feel. Screen body ratio  is 83.78 %

The Samsung Galaxy M30s uses the same screen as the M30. It’s really nice to see Super Amoled screens on mid-range phones. The smartphone  has a 6.4” FHD sAMOLED  display. The smartphone with an infinity display (end-to-edge bezel-less display)  has a resolution of 1080×2340 (FHD+)  pixels  and  a pixel density of 403 PPI . The screen with good saturation and quality   has a brightness of 370 nits . Users who want to read something in daylight will have a hard time.

The fullness of the screen and the colors are very successful. What makes this screen far from great is its low brightness of 370 nits.
