New Samsung Galaxy A02S

Hey everyone sometimes you just don’t want to shell out a bunch of money for a brand new flagship or even a mid-ranger so a budget phone is the way to go the New Samsung Galaxy A02S or M02S in certain markets is one such device and like all budget phones there are compromises to be had still when you add everything up and take the price into consideration is this phone a goodbye this is our review of the New Samsung galaxy A02S now. Samsung Galaxy A02S release date released dated November 24 2020 the A02S has a bit of a confusing name situation but if you remember only one thing you should know that the differentiates Samsung Galaxy A02S phone from its even lower specs A02 and M02 siblings semantics aside this phone has a standard and clean design for its class ours has a blue paint job with differently shaded rhombuses on the back it’s a uni body plastic panel which makes sense for the price it’s very similar to the Galaxy A12 but the texture is nicer even though it’s plastic at 196 grams

New Samsung Galaxy A02S unlocked cdma verizonsprint not supported and isn’t exactly light it’s understandable with the battery size though the camera island lies almost complete flat unlike many other galaxies which means this phone won’t be very wobbly on flat surfaces the buttons are a bit mushy and while it’s not a deal breaker the experience is notably unpleasant there’s no fingerprint sensor here as it’s an entry-level device but you can use the selfie camera for face unlocking it works quickly and reliably though it’s not the most secure option out there the A02S has some pretty thick bezels and an even thicker chin this is far from surprising considering it’s a budget phone as for the display itself it’s a 6.5 inch pls lcd with a 720p resolution that means it doesn’t have a particularly high pixel density at 270 ppi

New Samsung Galaxy A02S also means that the screen draws less power the lcd has a max brightness of around 400 nits which isn’t too bad the contrast ratio was excellent especially compared to the Galaxy a12 on the audio side of things you’ll find a headphone jack at the bottom you also get fm radio if you’re using wired headphones there’s a single downward facing speaker which had average loudness a touch louder than the galaxy a12 but unimpressive overall if there’s a standout feature on this phone New Samsung Galaxy A02S definitely the battery life thanks to the 5 000 milliamp hour battery the A02S got 114 hours of endurance on our tests though it’s a bit behind the Galaxy a12 which has the same battery capacity and screen size but a different chipset the phone ships with a 15 watt fast charger and New Samsung Galaxy A02S gets from flats to 30 in half an hour it needs around two hours and a half for a full charge still that’s much faster than the Galaxy a12’s three hour charging time the A02S relies on the snapdragon 450 chipset and either three or four gigs of ram

New Samsung Galaxy A02S Supported Accessories

This is a chipset accessories for all of your Samsung mobile devices, from phone covers, power, audio and more that’s been around since 2017 and honestly it shows this phone is significantly slower than its competition which sport more powerful chipsets for the same money oddly enough the phone was less prone to stutters than the a12 however the galaxy A02S runs android 10 with one ui 2.5 on top we’re hoping that New Samsung Galaxy A02S shall get android 11 eventually though this device isn’t exactly the highest priority for Samsung what is promising is that this phone will get four years of security updates other than that you’ll be pleased to know that one ui 2.5 is very consistent from phone to phone

So what you find here won’t be so different from what you see on other galaxies you have the same in-house gallery app file manager Samsung browser gesture navigation as well as a system-wide dark mode the A02S has a triple camera setup consisting of a 13 megapixel main camera a 2 megapixel macro shooter and a 2 megapixel depth sensor in comparison the a12 has a larger 48 megapixel quad bare main snapper but if there’s any difference in image quality it’s not in daylight photos during the day photos were sharp and detailed

And were definitely good enough for the class there’s some grain in uniform areas but we’ve seen noisier images from more expensive phones what’s more unpleasant is that colors have a greenish hue and dynamic range is limited there’s no tele camera but it takes decently zoomed in shots and it’s definitely better than the a12s portraits taken in live focus mode are nicely done and subject detection is consistently good overall there’s no hdr here however so highlights will be blown out in backlit scenes you should also know that live focus handles non-human subjects quite well too the macro camera takes unimpressive shots

They’re not very detailed because of the low resolution and the fixed focus is limiting at night is where the entry-level nature of the main camera really shows through images have a very narrow dynamic range under exposed shadows and blown-out highlights the detail in dark areas is particularly mushy in better lit areas images are usable it’s a bit of a shame that this phone doesn’t include a night mode because it would really have benefited from it the selfie camera isn’t particularly impressive either images are soft and have little detail even when we disable all the skin softening noise was plentiful too colors could be more saturated but the dynamic range was good still you should tap on your face for proper exposure in backlit scenes the A02S maxes out at 1080p at 30fps and there is no stabilization to speak of footage was sharper and had more detail than the a12 but you’ll still find a greenish tint and a limited dynamic range if you’re dead set on a galaxy phone and you really can’t stray from the budget segment then it’s between

Samsung Galaxy A02S and the galaxy A12 of the two the A12 is better overall but if you’re looking for the cheapest galaxy phone around well this one is okay if brand loyalty isn’t that important to you though then you have a lot more options there’s Motorola’s g9 play the red mi 9 or even the real me 7i these phones have faster chip sets and some even offer 4k video capture some might be a little more expensive but it actually might be worth it over the headaches that come with lower chip sets and there’s also future proofing to consider so take your pick wisely thank you for reading this article everyone stay safe and i’ll see you guys next time.
