Samsung launched its Galaxy A03s at the start of 2022 as a successor to the Samsung Galaxy A02s. The Samsung galaxy A03s offers a nearly identical display to its predecessor. Speaking of affordability then you should go for a Galaxy A03s.
Samsung Galaxy Price and Accessibility Review
The Samsung Galaxy A03s is quite cheap and affordable. It can be purchased via Samsung website, Amazon and other electronic retail store. The Galaxy A03s cost $159.
Samsung Galaxy A03 Design Review
The Samsung Galaxy A03s looks almost identical to the A02s, as aforementioned. The gently ridged plastic chassis both looks and feels good, and does an excellent job of disguising ugly fingerprints.
The power button is positioned beside the volume keys along the phone’s right-hand edge, and also functions as a fingerprint scanner. There’s a face unlock function, too, which relies on the selfie camera but using a PIN or pattern instead would.
The Galaxy A03s uses the same 6.5-inch, 1600 x 720 PLS LCD panel as its predecessor. It has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and a pixel density of 270ppi, and it’s large and sharp enough to its users needs.
Samsung Galaxy A03s Camera Review
The Galaxy A03s has a triple rear camera setup that’s underpinned by a 13-megapixel main sensor, 2-megapixel macro lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
The Galaxy A03s has a Pro Mode, which lets you drill down into the nuts and bolts of the camera, is a fun addition, as is Portrait mode, which lets you blur the background of pictures to make your subject stand out. Hyperlapse provides an easy way to shoot time-lapse videos.
Samsung Galaxy A03s Performance Review
The Samsung Galaxy runs on the MediaTek Helio P35 chip. But similar to the A12 and the A02s, which use the Snapdragon 450 processor and are similarly sluggish, the Galaxy A03s handles intensive games surprisingly well.
Samsung Galaxy A03s Battery Review
Battery life is the one area in which the Galaxy A03s shines. It can easily keep going for over a day, sometimes two, from a full charge, although powering it back up again is an uphill task.
Charging the Galaxy A03s back up again requires serious patience, especially since the phone doesn’t have fast-charging functionality; it takes a whopping 4hrs 8mins to complete a full charge.
Samsung Galaxy A03s Software Review
The Galaxy A03s has received the Android 12 software upgrade, which runs under Samsung’s own OneUI skin.
Samsung’s Galaxy A03s is a decent option among sub-$200 smartphones and a fair fit for those looking at the Galaxy A03s as a first smartphone or an option for those on a tight budget. The addition of a fingerprint reader is a nice touch for simple security, too.
