The Verdict

Samsung has launched yet another smartphone in the M series “Samsung Galaxy M30”. The 4GB RAM variant is priced at Rs. 14,990 and 6GB RAM variant is priced at Rs. 17,990.

The Samsung Galaxy M30 offers a vivid Super AMOLED panel, big battery life and good camera performance in daylight which are the biggest plus of this smartphone. For low-light photography you have compromise a little bit or you can play around with some tweaks. The downside of the smartphone is the old Samsung Experience UI along with Android Oreo as the company should have opt for the new OneUI with Android Pie looking at the hips and happenings of the segment.

Overall the Samsung Galaxy M30 looks a decent option for samsung brand lovers and people looking for option in mid range smartphones. But with Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro (the new segment king with some serious value for money) along with Realme U1 Rs. 9,999 and the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 Rs. 13,486 are real threat for the Samsung Galaxy M30.

With the competition better in performance, the Samsung Galaxy M30 stand outs with its features. So the question is whether you want better performance or better features, choice is yours.
