Samsung Galaxy M30s comes with a mid-range price-tag and bring some amazing features. It has a strong processor that can deal with any sort of high-end performance. There is an amazing set of triple rear camera that clicks awesome pictures while the front camera also gets a high-resolution lens. Considering the battery backup, it has a huge capacity that can easily last for a day. It also has fast charging support. Overall the smartphone is amazing with an affordable price tag.
The Samsung Galaxy M30s offers an Infinity-U display, a.k.a waterdrop notch. The bezels of the screen are acutely thin on the sides but comparatively thicker at the bottom. You still get around 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, which is great. As for the display specification, Samsung has offered a full-HD+ resolution (1080 x 2340 pixels) Super AMOLED display of 6.4-inch in size.
The Super AMOLED display on the M30s offers excellent viewing angles. By default, the screen offers slightly muted and realistic colors, but you can switch to Vivid mode in Setting if you want punchier and saturated colors. Blacks are deep, which looks good with Night mode enabled.
The M30s screen is great for watching videos and playing games. With a 1080p resolution, videos and texts appear sharp. The M30s also comes with Widevine L1 certification, so you will be able to stream content on platforms like Netflix and Prime Video in true HD resolution.
You can choose the screen modes from Vivid and Natural. It also lets you turn on the Blue light filter and night mode. You can also select the font size and style, level of zoom for the text appearing on the screen as part of display customizations.
The camera setup on the Samsung Galaxy M30s is a major upgrade over its predecessor. While the number of cameras remains the same, it is the primary sensor that sees a major upgrade. Instead of the 13-megapixel sensor used on the previous model, the M30s get Samsung’s own 48-megapixel sensor for its primary camera. This sensor is mated to an f/2.0 lens.
The secondary wide-angle camera also sees a resolution bump from 5-megapixel on the M30 to 8-megapixels on the M30s. The field of view – at 120 degrees – remains the same. The third depth-sensing camera seems to be the same 5-megapixel unit that was also used on the M30. At the front, the M30s retain the 16-megapixel sensor which is mated to an f/2.2 lens. By default, the primary 48-megapixel camera captures images in 12-megapixel resolution. However, you can choose to capture a true 48-megapixel image from within the settings.
The camera settings also give users an option to select an AI-powered scene optimizer feature. Once turned on, this feature allows the phone to ‘recognize’ objects in front of it and optimize the image output.
The phone also gets a Night Mode that users can invoke whenever they feel the ambient light is too low. Switching between the primary and the ultra-wide-angle lens is also very easy and is just one click away. The phone also supports video recording using the ultra-wide-angle camera. Since we have invoked video recording, it is also important to note that while the handset supports 4K video recording, it cannot do 1080p 60fps videos. The phone also supports a super steady video mode which works pretty well for a device that does not feature optical image stabilization.
During the daytime, the M30s produces excellent images with great details and nice dynamic range. There is a tendency to enhance the blues and this seems to be an inherent characteristic of this 48-MP sensor. While the details come up great, I did notice an evident lack of sharpness in some of the daylight samples.
One area where the Samsung Galaxy M30s receives a significant upgrade over the M30 is the chipset. While the M30 came with Exynos 7904 SoC. The Exynos 9611 is a slightly upgraded version of the Exynos 9610 SoC and is packs in an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A73 cores and four Cortex A-53 cores. For graphics, you get the Mali-G72 GPU. The phone comes in two versions; a base 4GB+64GB version and the pricier 6GB+128GB version that we received for review.
Thanks to OneUI, the general software performance was great. Coming from flagship-grade handsets with 90Hz and 120Hz displays, I initially found the display to be slow to respond but that was just a matter of getting used to. The default animation effects that Samsung uses on some of its entry-level devices also make the UI feel slower than it actually is In fact, these default animations setting is the only thing I would want Samsung to change on its budget handsets.
I did not face any major issues with the general performance of the Samsung Galaxy M30s. The UI was zippy and apps opened pretty fast. Even the fingerprint scanner performed really well and was pretty accurate too. The phone also supports the face unlock feature and the process of registering your face is also pretty quick. If you are interested in buying the M30s specifically for gaming, the large 6,000mAh battery will be definitely of help. I played both Asphalt 9 and PUBG Mobile on the M30s and there were major issued or heating problems. I did, however, face some initial issues with PUBG Mobile and there is an occasional frame drop while playing the game.
The biggest feature that separates the Galaxy M30s from every other smartphone right now is the battery. This is the only smartphone in India as of now that offers an insanely large 6,000mAh battery. It even makes the 5,000mAh battery on the M30 look small in comparison. With a huge 6,000mAh battery, Samsung says the M30s will offer a two-day battery life with ease, and I found this to be true and then some.
The Galaxy M30s is easily a two-day battery life. In fact, it may last well beyond two days for users on mild usage. During the review period, I stressed the battery life quite a lot, playing a lot of games, streaming videos combined with frequent social media browsing. Even with all that going on, the M30s managed to last me around a day and a half on a single charge with close to 9 hours of screen on time, which is fantastic. Standby battery drain is minimal as I found battery dropping only about 3-4 percent overnight with Always-On display enabled.
Unfortunately, the M30s come with only a 15W fast charger in the box much like the M30. It takes over two hours to charge the “monstrous” 6,000mAh battery, which is quite slow. It would have been nice to see a faster 18W charging support for the M30s considering the size of the battery.
The storage of the smartphone has 64GB internal space, which is decent for the price. Although it could have feature more amount, the expandable memory option is present that can stretch the space up to 512GB on the expense of a microSD card.
In terms of internal hardware, the smartphone feature Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 9611 chip, which has an octa-core processor setup having two quad-core processors with 2.3GHz and 1.7GHz clock speed respectively. It has 4GB RAM that gives amazing speed without any lag. There is a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU that renders graphics of the device. In terms of connectivity, it supports 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, Mobile Hotspot, GPS, USB Type-C, etc.
So, why are you waiting for? Buy this Samsung Galaxy M30s smartphone now and enjoy a smooth lag-free multitasking experience.
