Samsung Galaxy A03 Review
The Galaxy A03 is not worth buying because Samsung is offering an HD+ TFT LCD Display while there it also does not have a fingerprint scanner on it. So, Samsung is just charging extra money just for brand value. Overall, we suggest you skip the Galaxy A03 and take a look at other devices available in the market like Poco M2.
Just like other Samsung devices at the same price, the Galaxy A03 is also an overpriced smartphone but they need to provide some value to their customers.
Also, this could have been the best smartphone, if there were no other handset available but that’s not the case, we do have many phones from Poco M2 to Micromax IN Note 1 which are available at the same price as Galaxy A03 and they offer a lot better value.
The device features a 6.5-inches HD+ PLS TFT LCD Infinity-V Display with a screen resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels and a 60Hz Refresh Rate.
The frame and back panel of the phone are made out of plastic while there is glass protection on the top but Samsung has not disclosed which glass they used to protect the display.
The smartphone features a 48MP Dual Rear Camera setup with an LED Flash in the square module. The cameras consist of a 48MP primary lens with f/1.8 aperture and a 2MP depth lens with f/2.4 aperture.
There is a 5MP Selfie Camera lens with f/2.2 aperture in the waterdrop style notch design display. The rear camera can record 1080p videos at 30fps.
The 48MP rear camera shoots okay-type photos and the dynamic range of the device is very limited. And yes, forget that 2MP depth lens as it’s added just for numbers, no use of it in the real life.
When it comes to selfies, the 5MP selfie camera clicks photos and is very decent. Samsung should have at least provided a 13MP selfie camera but they didn’t, they went with 5MP only.
Samsung needs to work on the cameras and provide better cameras, especially the selfie camera at this price. Also, they need to optimize the camera.
Overall, the cameras of the smartphone are not that great compared to what other companies are offering at the same price.
The Samsung Galaxy A03 is powered by an octa-core Unisoc T606 Processor coupled with Arm Mali-G57 MP1 GPU. The device runs on Android 11-based OneUI Core 3.1 skin out of the box. Now, at this price point, Unisoc T606 is not acceptable, Samsung should have provided Helio G80 at least.
The Unisoc T606 processor is not that powerful too, the phone feels laggy and sometimes, it freezes for seconds while opening applications. Overall, don’t expect performance to be great, you will be disappointed with the performance.
The device packs a 5,000 mAh Battery with 7.75W Fast Charging Support and Samsung has used a Micro-USB Port for charging which is again a disappointment. Samsung has included a 7.75W charger inside the box. However, this is totally unacceptable at this price point, Samsung should have provided at least 15W charging support.
Also, there are no stereo speakers but it does have a 3.5mm headphone jack, a dedicated SD-card slot while it does not have a fingerprint scanner.
