It is a slim and sleek phone with a glossy rear panel. The shiny back comes in different colors, i.e. Black, Blue and Red. Although the back is not reflective, it shows light shimmers when viewed at a certain angle. The fingerprint sensor is placed very conveniently on its rear side for the finger to reach. It isn’t excessively wide so it is easier for the hand to grip onto and its light weight allows for it to be carried easily, without hassle. The volume and power buttons are also located at reachable distance and are easy to maneuver. The phone provides triple card slots for two Nano SIMs along with a microSD card, which is a pleasant node for the owner. The display is rich and lively with colors as at 1080p resolution due to its AMOLED display. The processor is built in a way to conserve battery and focuses on power efficiency. Its RAM management allows the user to experience smooth multitasking without closing down far too many background apps.

The Samsung Galaxy A30 Pro majorly runs very smoothly when it comes to day to day tasks like messaging, social networking ad web surfing. It is also capable of running graphic intensive games like PUBG on medium graphics. Nevertheless, it will run into a lag and slow down movement when the graphics are bumped too high. One of its greatest advantage is that it runs on the latest Android Pie software, which provides a simple, minimalistic user interface meant to make the experience easy and convenient.

The app icons have been redesigned and situated alongside a system wide night mode, which is visually enticing. With a reduction in bloatware, emphasis is laid on provide a clean and simple interface with the necessary and relevant content, to make it a worthwhile experience for all age groups. Software updates have been consistent for now, but there is no saying how persistent they may be in the future. A con that appears is its slow biometric options, the fingerprint sensor and the face unlock, which may be a cause of grave concern if it is not backed up by alternative measures. However, its call quality and bottom speaker is a job well done.

The camera quality is generally very good, specifically in sunlight where it turns out with adequate saturation and detail. But in indoor conditions, they may not appear with such good quality, especially if you zoom in. The wide aperture allows it to capture well low-light photos, but it becomes difficult to reduce noise and unclear images due to its lack of a dedicated long-exposure mode. Overall, the camera quality is phenomenal in daylight conditions whilst it may not serve the same purpose in areas where there are light deficiencies.
