Samsung has used plastic unibody within the Galaxy M30 and therefore the edges area unit recurved to stay the grip smart. The Galaxy M30 is formed out there in Gradation Blue and Gradation Black colors. we have a tendency to got the gradation blue variant for the review.

The power and volume buttons area unit on the correct. they furnish smart responses. we have a tendency to found that the ability however to was simple to achieve but the degree button position isn't therefore. there's a SIM receptacle on the left aspect of the device. it's an area for 2 nano-SIM cards and one microSD card.

The Samsung Galaxy M30 at the top has holes for the microphone. The 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and loudspeaker have got space at the bottom. At the rear is a fingerprint sensor with the oval shape. Its position is slightly up. For this reason, the fingerprint scanner is not easy to access. The phone also has a triple rear camera setup. The selfie flash is just below the camera module.

Samsung has given a large 5000 mAh battery in this phone. Despite this, the company has managed to keep the weight of the phone at 172 grams. In the retail box, you will find a 15-watt charger.

It brings black bars on either side of the notch.

Display settings can be changed in Samsung Galaxy M30. You have the option to choose between adaptive display, AMOLED cinema, AMOLED photo and basic. We used an adaptive display mode all the time. It allows you to change the white balance and color levels.

The octa-core Exynos 7904 processor has been used on the phone. There are two variants of phones based on RAM and storage - 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, 6 GB and 128 GB storage. If needed, you will be able to use up to 512 GB MicroSD cards in both variants.

It will run on Samsung Experience 9.5 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Our review unit came with a February security patch. In our view, Samsung should have given OneUI based on Android Pie on this phone, like Galaxy A30. Which is slightly more expensive than the Galaxy M30.

You will find many Samsung apps installed first. We found the My Galaxy app spam. Because it was sending push notifications repeatedly.

Samsung Galaxy M30 performance, battery life, and Camera

The Galaxy M20 uses the same processor as the Galaxy M20. We expected a similar performance. The phone never slowed down in common use. Despite many apps being open in the background, we were able to multitask easily.

The fingerprint scanner quickly unlocks the phone. You will also be able to unlock the phone through face recognition with the help of a selfie camera. Dolby Atmos is also a part of the phone, but it can be enabled only using headphones. While watching videos and playing games, we did not find the sound coming from the loudspeaker.

To see the gaming performance, we played PUBG Mobile on the phone. It ran on medium settings. During this time the graphics were balanced and the frame rate was on the medium settings. We found that there are complaints of lag in these settings. After that smoothed the graphics settings. Now the lag short was removed and the game became playable. After playing PUBG Mobile for 37 minutes, we found that the phone felt hot to the touch and the battery was reduced by 9 percent.

The Galaxy M30 achieved extremely average scores in the benchmark test. Even if the performance does not go in favor of the phone, but the Galaxy M30 will be known for its strong battery life.

Its battery is 5000 mAh. It plays together for a long time once fully charged. In normal use, there was no need to charge the phone for about one and a half days. In the HD video loop test, the battery died in 17 hours and 4 minutes, which is more than the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1. but
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is even ahead of the Galaxy M30. Its battery lasted for 19 hours 23 minutes. With the help of the 15-watt charger provided in the retail box, you will be able to charge 23% of the phone's battery in 30 minutes. 46 percent in one hour and a full charge in a little over two hours.

The Galaxy M30 has a triple camera setup on the rear. It is equipped with a 13-megapixel primary camera with f / 1.9 aperture, a 5-megapixel depth sensor with f / 2.2 aperture and a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens with a 123-degree field of view. A 16-megapixel sensor with F / 2.0 aperture has been given for the selfie.

Samsung's camera app is very easy to use. The toggles are at the bottom and the different modes are at the top. The camera is equipped with Panorama, Pro, Beauty, Live Focus, Stickers, and Continuous Shot.

With the help of beauty mode, you will be able to add beauty filters before taking a shot. You have the option of choosing one of the many settings yourself, or you can leave this responsibility on the phone by choosing Smart Beauty.

The quality of the pictures taken with the Galaxy M30 camera was of the same level as other handsets in this price range. Photos taken during the day came out sharp and contained a lot of detail. The phone has been able to focus and get accurate exposure before taking a picture. Distant objects remain visible. While photographing at night, we realized chromatic aberration. In the macros shot we found that the phone succeeds in achieving separation in the subject and background. However, this phone was having troubleshooting red. Because it was aggressively boosting the Reds. Due to which it looked artificial.

Ultra wide-angle sensor is used to capture the wider frame. It is best for landscape shots due to a lack of autofocus. Some of the pictures we took had barrel distortion. But to overcome this deficiency, Samsung has given the option of shape correction in the gallery. But this sensor does not capture as much detail as the primary sensor.

We captured the portrait in live focus mode. We were satisfied with the output. You can set the level of blur. The phone succeeds in keeping the subject separate from the background. Its edge detection is good.

The performance of the Galaxy M30 in low light was average. There was less noise in the photo but there were grains in it. This may be due to an aggressive noise reduction algorithm. Distant objects were not recognized. It is common at this price.

There was no lack of detail in the selfie taken with a 16-megapixel camera. We also used the live focus mode for the Bokeh effect. Despite being the only selfie sensor, the Galaxy M30 achieved good edge detection. You will be able to record videos with a primary resolution of 1080 pixels with the primary camera. But the output remains shaky due to no stabilization.
