Samsung Galaxy M30s Review

Galaxy M30s

Samsung has recently launched the new and updated version of Samsung Galaxy M30- Galaxy M30s. The brand started this year with the new Galaxy M series to compete with Chinese brands in the mid-range segment. The new Samsung Galaxy M30s comes with a full-HD+ AMOLED display, Exynos 9611 SoC, a triple-camera setup, and a 6,000mAh battery. But, is it a worthy smartphone to buy? Let’s check it out in the Samsung Galaxy M30s review below:

Design and Display

Everybody knows how cool and good M series is! And, the same does the new Samsung M30s bring to the market. Samsung Galaxy M30s comes with a dewdrop notch on the front, which Samsung calls the Infinity-U display. The front panel has thin bezels around the screen but the chin is bit thicker.  On the right edge, there are power and volume buttons while the SIM tray is on the left side. On the bottom, you get to see a USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, primary microphone, and loudspeaker while a secondary microphone lies on the top.

The back panel has a triple camera setup, a fingerprint scanner, and a Samsung logo. The fingerprint sensor is easy to reach and is very responsive. Samsung Galaxy M30s comes in three color variants: Opal Black, Sapphire Blue, and Pearl White. You can get great discount on electronic devices online using paytm offers.

Coming to the display. the Galaxy M30s packs a 6.4-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with 1080×2340 pixel resolution. It is a good display and watching movies plus TV series will give you delight. The display gets bright enough in sunny conditions and the viewing angles are great too. Samsung has been making some stunning displays for a long, long time and at this price tag, the same comes with the new Samsung M30s and we love it.


Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy M30s has its own Exynos 9611 chipset, which is the same one we saw in Galaxy A50s. The chipset has four ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7GHz. The device comes in two variants: 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. This chipset makes the device run smooth with no lags or stutters. The fingerprint sensor is very responsive and face recognition is quick too. On the AnTuTu platform, the Galaxy M30s scored 152,453 points which are lower than the 178,570 scored by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. Playing games like PUBG Mobile on this phone is quite entertaining and fun as a smartphone barely warms up at medium settings.

Samsung Galaxy M30s runs Android 9 Pie out of the box coupled with Samsung’s One UI.

Battery Life

The Galaxy M30s packs a high-capacity 6,000mAh battery which makes this device stand alive like a soldier for days. You can easily go for two days with this device on regular usage. Activities like using WhatsApp for texting, playing games, using the camera for taking some shots, listening to music, and making some calls doesn’t take this phone down so easily- two days for this device is just a cakewalk. Samsung has bundled this device with a 15W charger which can charge the phone to 20 percent in just half an hour. In an hour, the device can take this device to 45 percent. However, it can go 0 to 100 percent in two and a half hours


Talking about the cameras, the Samsung Galaxy M30s sports a triple-camera setup on the rear panel which includes a 48-megapixel primary sensor with an f/2.0 aperture lens, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The primary sensor is by default set up at 12-megapixel resolution but you can club it to 48-megapixel. Pictures come out well-detailed with a decent dynamic range which looks good on the phone’s AMOLED panel. Daylight pictures are crisp and tight while pictures shot in low lighting lacks detail and are very grainy. Coming to selfies, this phone clicked some well-detailed images but the detailing dropped in low lighting conditions. You can apply for Software Tester Jobs to know about this field.

Final Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy M30s is a good upgrade to Galaxy M30.  The device comes with a crisp and clean AMOLED display, has battery capacity up to 6,000mAh, Exynos 9611 SoC is better than the Exynos 7904, and affordable price tag. But, the cameras pull this overall experience a bit down and Samsung needs to work on them. If you are looking for a battery monster under Rs. 15,000, Samsung Galaxy M30s is the one for you. The device straightaway competes with devices like Realme 5 Pro and Redmi Note 7 Pro. If you want to buy Samsung’s new A50s, then also M30s offer better value than that device at a lower price tag. If cameras would have been better in this device, there was no competition of this device in the market.
