Should You Buy?

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy M30 reflects Samsung’s new intent for its budget smartphones as it packs some good features at a reasonable price. The most highlighting things about the Galaxy M30 are the triple rear cameras, AMOLED display and the massive battery, all of which have been executed pretty well, especially the wide angle lens at this budget price is pretty impressive. Although the Galaxy M30’s Exynos processor is not as powerful as the Qualcomm processors around the same price, it still is very good for day to day usage and even gaming, although heavy gamers shouldn’t settle for it. The Galaxy M30 has also got a very good front camera, decent design and now when it has received the Android Pie update with One UI, it has become a very good smartphone as a package and add with it the trust and brand value of Samsung, it becomes a very good smartphone for the price.
