2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good looks and build quality - with a a unibody design, and glossy finish on the back panel - quite similar to its cousins - the M10 and M20
  • The Galaxy M30’s back panel doesn’t attract fingerprint smudges as much as M20 - it’s also better to grip and use for longer period of time

Display

  • Very good 6.4-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a tiny waterdrop notch - the screen is vibrant and offers pretty satisfactory legibility indoors and outdoors - one of the very few phones in this price bracket to have an AMOLED panel

Software

  • The Samsung Experience UI is quite nice and well-optimized, and one of the better Android UIs at present
  • The Experience UI is leaner than before, but there are still a few pre-loaded bloatware apps though like My Galaxy, Dailyhunt, Amazon and Facebook (most of which cannot be uninstalled, only disabled) - some apps like The My Galaxy app also push out a lot of spam notifications

Performance

  • Decent, solid, mid-range performance with a Exynos 7904 octa-core processor (similar to Snapdragon 626) - it can easily handle your day-to-day tasks such as browsing, social networking and streaming multimedia on-the-go - graphic-intensive games like PUBG Mobile also run smooth on the phone

Camera

  • Decent triple-rear camera setup - includes a 13-megapixel camera with f/1.9 sensor, 5-megapixel depth sensor, and 5-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with 123-degree viewing angle - the results are good for the given price point
  • Decent selfie camera too
  • The lowlight performance of the rear and front cameras, is however, pretty average

Battery

  • Excellent battery life with a massive 5000 mAh battery - you will get up to 2 days with moderate use

Verdict

  • Samsung Galaxy M30 is a pretty capable mid-range smartphone, and if you’re looking for a phone with big battery and good camera, Galaxy M30 is worth considering - that said, it will face some stiff competition from the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro which offers Snapdragon 675 processor and 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor
