Samsung Galaxy A03 Review

Samsung Galaxy A03 after consumers released positive feedback on Samsung’s entry-level A03s, the company decided to upgrade the model. The A03s continues to use the chipset included in its predecessor and is not compatible with other models.

Is the Galaxy A03 worth buying over the Galaxy A03s? The chipset and camera on the older model are not as impressive.

The Samsung Galaxy A03 is an affordable phone with all the latest features that make it stand out from the rest of the crowd.

Samsung Galaxy A03 is affordable and sleek in design. It has an impressive battery life and comes with a large screen to give you more content space.

Design – Glasstic with subtle patterns

The Samsung Galaxy A03 is a phone that has a plastic body with a matte finish. It can be seen simply by looking at it that this phone is an entry-level device.

The matte finish makes it harder for fingerprints and smudges to stick on the surface and provides a pleasant grip. The phone’s unique shape also helps with your grip while taking pictures.

“The Galaxy A03 isn’t a premium smartphone.” This device is mostly an entry-level phone and as such doesn’t feature premium materials or hardware. It’s possible that you might want to pass on this option if you’re looking for something with a more high-end design, but it could serve your needs well otherwise.

The Galaxy A03 is available in three colours: black, blue and red. Our review unit is a black one that looked very neat. Unlike other smartphone brands, Samsung does not include a casing in this phone box. So, if you want to prevent the colour from fading (especially for bright colours), make sure you buy one separately.

As you can see, the Galaxy A03 is a pretty good smartphone for its price. This phone is also a staple on the low-cost smartphone market with its affordable price tag of RM469. There are some notable differences between this phone and other Galaxy phones like in terms of its chipset, camera,

The Galaxy A03 has Dolby Atmos stereo speakers with clear sound. It also offers a Dolby Atmos experience for earphones in the settings. In addition, there is also Dolby For Gaming that can enhance the audio of your gaming sessions and provide you with clarity.

If you’re looking for a phone with a smooth interface and lots of features, I recommend the Galaxy A03. It comes with OneUI, which is similar to what’s on other Samsung devices. There are also lots of features to love about this device, like its battery life. I didn’t experience any lag when I scrolled through my apps.

The UI for the camera on the Galaxy A03 is easy to use. The Galaxy A03 has a photo mode that can automatically adjust your lighting, which means there’s no need for difficult manual settings. There’s also a bokeh effect, which makes your selfies even more appealing. It does all this with some basic taps and swipes!

Along with standard mode settings, it also has options for Panorama, Food, Night Normal and Hyperlapse video modes. For video recordings at standard settings you can choose between your usual phone or this one as the camera.

Performance – Enough for daily tasks

I wanted to clarify that before sharing my performance numbers, I’ll first present the benchmark results we’ve done in Geekbench & 3DMark:

If you want to access your favorite apps, check emails and browse social media on the go, then our findings do not surprise you. However, this laptop does not provide much RAM so it is best suited for standard tasks.

The Galaxy A03 is equipped with only facial recognition for security. This has a better rate of accuracy than the Galaxy A03s which has a fingerprint scanner on board. The face-scanning performance on the Galaxy A03 is decent enough.

If you want the best mobile gaming experience, it might not be best to go with this device. Its low power performance & limited games are where it falls short in comparison to other devices that’ll offer you a more pleasant gaming experience.

I noticed that the Galaxy A03 gets hot quickly while playing games like Candy Crush and Fruit Ninja. If you are using a smartphone case, remove the case first before playing games. This should maintain your phone’s internal temperature, and not damage the phone or game. Games requiring low graphics usage can be played.

The Galaxy A03 has a 5000mAh battery that can last up to two days with the Power Saving Mode activated.

The Samsung Galaxy A03s comes with a 7.75W charger to charge via a near-wireless charging system which takes around 1 hour 30 minutes for full charge. Unfortunately, it doesn’t include any fast charging options. In contrast, the larger Samsung Galaxy S10+ includes an adaptive fast charger, which takes around 30 minutes for full charge. Your phone has a feature that lets you download your files wirelessly. It might not be as fast as other models and it definitely does not have the same number of options, but being able to upload and download files will help prevent any mishaps.

Let’s discuss the Galaxy A03 camera. The main camera, ultra-wide camera, and depth sensors on the back offer enough functionality for a phone launched in 2021. The Galaxy A03s has one extra feature however – its triple lens selfie shooter with two luminaries to light up your face while capturing your special moments like never before!

Images captured in auto mode were of satisfactory quality. One thing I noticed was that colours are more saturated. For those into mobile photography, the Pro mode allows you to adjust the ISO, white balance, and contrast when taking pictures.

The Galaxy A03 offers a decent camera that is powerful enough to take pictures and share. Considering the budget phone’s price, most people are satisfied with the quality you get.

Using Night Mode when taking pictures in low-light conditions can result in better quality and lower noise levels. But it also reduces the level of detail in some areas. Also, you need to keep the phone steady in Night Mode because there is a timer (timer) when a picture is taken.

You may have noticed that the resolution options for video include HD and FHD. However, it’s important to know that you can only record videos at 30 frames per second on this phone. The absence of video stabilisation is also something to watch out for here.

Conclusion – Better option over A03s

The Samsung Galaxy A03 offers a nice experience for most people, especially those who mainly just expect the phone to do day-to-day tasks. Compared to the Galaxy A03s, the Galaxy A03 offers faster performance though it is not very noticeable

The Galaxy A03 has a micro-USB port, which is becoming less common as time goes on. Otherwise, it’s a pretty good choice with all the specs you need. It’s up to you to decide if this is the device for you.

For the price, I definitely recommend the Galaxy A03 as you will get a better value with the performance of the Unisoc T606. At RM469, it’s also cheaper than the A03s (RM559). The use of AI writing assistants in the workplace is becoming more widespread and for good reason. Not only do they save time and effort, but they provide a level of quality that is at par with human copywriters. Other suitable alternatives for this phone include the vivo Y20 (RM459), realme Narzo 50i (RM449), OPPO A16 (RM449).
