Devices / / December 19, 2019
Gradient color and AMOLED-display
The model is available in three colors: black, blue and white. All variations, except the last, have a gradient back. We got a smartphone in black.
It's nice that the developers did not do the back panel just black or color 'dark graphite'. The back, radiating dark turquoise closer to the right side, it looks interesting. Minus: It stamps and instantly collect dust, it can be clearly seen in the photo.
On the rear panel is a company logo, a block with three lenses and a fingerprint sensor. Last unstable: in the time of testing that he coped with its task flawlessly, it refused to recognize the finger after a dozen attempts.
The smartphone does not seem to be too cumbersome and fits comfortably in your hand. Rear panel smoothly into the plastic frame - from the point of view of security solution is not the best, but it looks great.
On the right are the standard volume keys and power, from the bottom - minijack-input and USB Type-C.
Front - the front camera in the U-shaped cut in the middle. This "eye" we have seen in testing, for example,Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50.
The display produces the same impression as the screens of Samsung, which fell to the editor in recent months. This is an excellent AMOLED with sufficient brightness to be used in the sun and adjusting the color tone.
There is a nuance: for testing time to take auto-tuning the brightness several times, had to adjust it manually. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the editors got an engineering sample, which may occur bugs.
Triple camera and night mode
Galaxy M30s received three chambers 48 megapixel sensor with the main aperture f / 2,0, 8 megapixel ultrashirokougolny lens with an aperture of f / 2,2 and the auxiliary-5 megapixel depth sensor.
Samsung does not seek to emphasize the high resolution main camera: in a normal application, we have not found the appropriate mode, and promostranitse product to the fore other specifications. We have already dealt with the theme of the race megapixels reviews and almost always argued that the meaning of their numbers a bit.
These pictures are a couple of lenses: ultrashirokougolny and wide.
In normal application, there is a night mode, which helps to work through both light and dark areas of the frame in low light. Algorithms cope not perfect - pictures almost always lubricated.
The front camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels. Examples selfie below.
Verdict: Galaxy M30s camera device corresponds to a price of 16 990 rubles. However, the images taken, for example, Redmi Note 8 Pro and Mi 9 Lite, Seemed to us a little more quality, and in fact are these smartphones about the same.
Acceptable performance and battery at 6000 mAh
In Galaxy M30s installed Exynos processor cores 9611 at a frequency up to 2.3 GHz, a graphics chip Mali-G72 MP3 and 4GB of RAM. This is not a top-end configuration, the smartphone is sometimes long and thinking produces barely noticeable lag. Most of all, they are felt in the camera application. These mikrozaderzhki and sluggishness known in comparison with flagships and unpretentious users can not be annoying.
We played on a smartphone in the COD. He warmed up a bit, but the frame rate is not appreciably subsided even for those working with high graphics settings (default set average).
Imperfection processor and chambers compensated accumulator with a capacity of 6000 mAh. This is almost two times more than the average level of the market, established in the range of 3 300-4 000 mAh. Galaxy M30s confidently held a couple of days at a load higher than the average and almost never discharged in standby mode. If you use a smartphone only for calls and non-correspondences in the messengers and social networks, it can work, and three, and four days without a power outlet.
Supported by fast 15-watt charging adapter included. Since it dials the battery from 0 to about 100% charge within 2.5 hours.
