Samsung Galaxy M30 Review:


Samsung Galaxy M30 comes with an FHD+ Super AMOLED display, 13MP+5MP+5MP double camera module at the back, 16MP selfie camera and 5,000mAh battery. But is it worth its cost of Rs 14,990? This is our review of this device.

With Galaxy M30 out available, Samsung has three mobiles in its own internet exclusive M-series smartphone lineup– two being Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20. The device is the first to sport a triple camera setup in the lineup, also available to buy on Amazon and Samsung’s official site.

Samsung Galaxy M30 guarantees a whole lot about the specifications sheet also has a starting cost of Rs 14,990. But how can the device perform in daily use? We put the device to the test and here is our review of the Samsung Galaxy M30. 16MP front camera.

The layout and display of this Samsung Galaxy M30 stand out the most. Although the device has a plastic cover, it doesn’t feel any less superior. The back panel is soft, has a gradient texture, the camera module does not bulge, along with the fingerprint sensor blends into the trunk, which makes the rear sleek and classy. It will attract fingerprints, but nothing like the glass-back phones.

The volume rockers and power button sit at the ideal side in reach, and the telephone has the newer USB Type-C port in the bottom. Additionally, a dedicated MicroSD card slot which will be useful for those who want to have more storage and also want to utilize two SIMs simultaneously. The speaker grille sits in the base and I saw no problem with the sound quality. The screen has 2340 x 1080 resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 90+ per cent screen-to-body ratio with excellent viewing angles.

The display is bright and the colours are sharp, but not overly sharp to cause distress. The text is clearly visible under direct sunlight. The bezels are lean and the chin is small but it could have been bigger.

Samsung has handled the U-shaped droplet notch really well. I did not feel any distress brought on by notch during my usage of this device. For the videos and games that don’t play on full screen, Galaxy M30 provides you symmetrically rounded screen with a black band on top identical to the chin at the bottom.

The multimedia expertise around the Super AMOLED screen is all but perfect, and since Galaxy M30 has Widevine L1 certification, it is possible to stream HD content on video streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

Samsung Galaxy M30 More Features


The Galaxy M30 has the same 1.8GHz octa-core Exynos 7904 processor that forces the Galaxy M20. While the chip (clubbed with Mali-G71 GPU) manages day to day tasks easily, a greater version of this processor would have been better.

The device registers a rating of 1,07,032 on Antutu (scored 1,06,977 during first impressions). During my usage, I didn’t confront lag or trouble switching between the programs even when the device was pushed to the extreme.
Pictures heavy games such as PUBG and Asphalt 9 run well on medium settings at default. You may barely notice frame drops or stutters, but if you alter the settings to high, the framework drops become quite evident. During gameplay, the telephone temperature climbs a bit, but never touches uncomfortable amounts.

Samsung Galaxy M30 runs the elderly Android 8.1 Oreo with firm’s Experience UI 9.5 on top, which has been a bit disappointing as I’d have appreciated the Android 9 Pie from the box. The custom skin is clean, but the animations Samsung has adopted does not provide it a smooth feel.

In addition, the options of free themes, icons, fonts, in addition to home-screen and lock-screen wallpapers is limited. Almost everything comes with a price tag, which might not find favour with a great deal of users. Samsung Galaxy M30 also includes lock-screen stories feature that isn’t anything, but advertisements. Thankfully, it is possible to disable it.

Samsung Galaxy M30 Review: Camera


Samsung Galaxy M30 includes a triple camera set up carrying a 13MP main sensor with an f/1.9 aperture + 5MP depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture + 5MP ultra-wide angle sensor having an f/2.2 aperture at the rear. The camera clicks good exterior shots in daylight and decent indoor images in artificial lighting, but it struggles in low light conditions and completely gives up at night.

The shutter speed of the device and image stabilisation is great. I clicked some pictures of moving vehicles from a moving e-rickshaw, which turned out like nothing is shifting.

I enjoyed the color reproduction from the images, which is close to natural colours. People who favor more saturated images need to rely on some filters, editing abilities if you want to earn these more social media prepared. Pictures taken from the principal camera carry more information than the ultra-wide sensor.

Photographs clicked night have too much noise and it is better not to use the ultra-wide lens in these types of ailments.

The depth sensor functions fine in good light, but it frequently mixes the subject with the background. The 16MP front camera onto the device takes good photographs but in low light conditions, this struggles (check samples). The camera program also has stickers, which some people may find entertaining.

Samsung Galaxy M30 review: Battery and other features


Very similar to Galaxy M20, M30 also sports a 5,000mAh battery, which is another highlight of this telephone. On average usage, the battery lasts more than two days. The battery gives around 8 hours of screen-on period backup. Galaxy M30 comes with 15W fast charger at the box that takes around two hours to get to 100 per cent mark out of zero.

The fingerprint sensor onto the device works right but if the screen is off, the device is going to take a little time to switch on. The face unlocks attribute on Samsung Galaxy M30 functions fine but may be quicker. The device has a”quicker recognition” feature for your face unlock, which”reduces security, raising the prospect of a video or image being incorrectly recognised as your face” but when activated, it seldom works instantly.

Galaxy M30 packs an appealing build and layout using a brilliant display and lengthy battery life. The camera performance and standard functioning of the device are fine, but then in the under Rs 15,000 price range, users have started expecting more given the kind of options available in the market. The contest is really extreme in this area.

… Thank You …
