camera , battery , quality , grip ... and as i purchased the device in sale , i get 1000 cashback from the amazon , orded on today at 12 pm , and get the device on the same day at 2 pm . Thankyou amazon .
Pros: 1.Looks stunning high end category. 2.Battery is also powerful. 3. Fast charging.
Cons: 1.Camera is not upto mark as it says 48MP it's like 8 Mp 2. Storage & Memory statistics are confusing. Showing 900 mb free though I am not accessing much resources. 3. Earphone slot given at down side which makes difficult to handle phone.
The worst phone I have ever owned. Was pressured by some people to buy cheap garbage. Otherwise I wouldn't have touched it by a bargepole. There is no way you can turn HDR on or off. All the cameras are mediocre, especially the wide-angle one which distorts every image. GPS doesn't work without mobile connectivity which means the phone is useless for hiking etc. The fingerprint reader is in the back and doesn't easily recognise the print. The facial recognition is subpar. The user experience is extremely bad. For instance, if you need to copy a phone number from the call log, there is a long, unintuitive process to do so unlike a Xiaomi phone where it's a one-click process. Then dialling that copied number would be another long, unintuitive process unlike Xiaomi where it would know already that you want to dial the number you just copied and hence only require one tap. I wish I had one good thing to say about the phone. Maybe the battery or the screen but there are many phones with that. Samsung is the next Sony of smartphones, ie dead but trying to show that it's alive due to sheer arrogance. Chinese phone manufacturers will dominate the world, sadly. So long Samsung! This is the third time I am disappointed with your phones.
Simply put it's a well built every day use phone. It has got a good quality screen and a very reasonable camera. The battery backup is very good, not a surprise as it comes with a 6000mAh battery. It's little on the heavier side though, especially if you are used to lighter models, you will feel the difference. But I got used to it in a week or two.
The build quality is good. Much better than many phones I saw on the same price point.
On the software side, it does not come with bare-bone android which is a minus, but most of the unwanted software can be disabled easily. So not disappointed there.
Finger printreader works like a charm. Phone gets charged in few hours and did not heat up during charging or normal use. I did not play video games though.
I used my phone for a month now. I have seen some pros and cons with this phone.
Pros: 1. Nice phone with good battery life. You can improve battery life to 2 days by optimize apps, configure notifications to show for apps which are necessary. 2. Being with Samsung S family for last 7+ years, i felt comfortable using in my day to day life. 3. Triple camera is new (earlier used S series) and happy upgrade for me. 4. Remember that you might lose some pic quality with far away lens. 5. Finder printreader is good but slow.
Cons: 1. Night photos even with light is not awesome. I go back to my S9 which is easy and with less blur for pics. 2. Using this phone for active kids might be a little challenge with low light or when they run away far. 3. Finger print scanner is slow. 4. Phone freezes up sometimes (not more than 10 to 15 secs).
Final note: I didn't do PUBG or other graphics rich apps or games. Low light or night pic photos noise or blurriness might be experienced on similar budget models in 10k range. I wish all brands increase optical zoom instead of MP. As always with Samsung phones i want a strong speaker on this one too. They should start going for dual speakers with extra bass.
Pros and cons are here: Pros- 1) Battery backup is amazing. More than 1.5 days on average use. 2) Screen is Amoled, best in this range. Punchy colors, true black, viewing angles are best. 3) Day time shots are very good. Night mode is bright. 4) Processing speed is above average. Just don't expect lightning fast processing. 5) Samsung One UI is so clean, managed & fast. 6) Not a Chinese brand. 7) Junk apps are not pre installed.
Cons- 1) finger printreader is not so fast but can be fixed by new updates. 2) Back side Design is not so happening. 3) Night mode photos are soft & noisy. 4) No stereo speakers. 5) Camera Pro mode could have more controls. 6) Sometimes phone lags when you've numbers of heavy apps running simultaneously. 7) When you switch to 48 mp then it'll take few seconds to click the picture. Concludingly it's a great phone in this segment. Go for it. I've been using it from past one month. Great deal!
Pros *display is really good *finger printreader is fast but face unlock messes up sometimes *dolby atmos sound on headset is really good * good for gaming I'm getting high recommendation settings for most demand games *camera is average but slow motion recordings is awesome ....front camera better than back one *design is really good with the vibrant color *call quality is above average, speaker sound is normal what you see in most smartphones but disordertion in high volumes * I accidentally dropped it when taking a selfie,I'm tall so height was a bit high still phone survived with no scratches so good screen and back protection *ui is user friendly
Cons Battery is bad,6000mah doesn't meet expectations if I don't use phone much and just use internet rarely it last 14-16hr On continuous usage just streaking watch vids and low end games it lasts only 8hrs continuously so really disappointed... Charging slow why 15w charger on high battery phone Face unlock sometimes slow
I am sharing my 2 day experience(with no sim inserted as it requires nano sim and mines is micro sim)
1) Charger cord is very small in length. You will need a table or chair always if your plug point is in height. 2)Camera quality is average. 3)Fingerprint reader is descent, though sometimes it takes 2-3 times for it to read my fingerprint. May be I am a 1st time user of finger print so may be facing this. 4) Battery is good, but need to use more to come to right conclusion as I have not inserted my sim card yet. I had charged it to 100% and after overnight on next day it still remained 100%. Previous day battery was at 49% and after overnight the next day it was 48%
Phone is slim and looks are good. A descent phone to purchase. I will update again after some days.
I am not completely satisfied with amazon as they withdrew the offer of Rs.1000 amazon cashback within 2 days. This offer should have remained from 29th sep to 4th oct 2019(offer period). In this case there is no difference even if you buy this phone after the festive period as price remains the same. Though I am satisfied with the deal, if amazon pay cashback of Rs. 1000 would have remained I would have been more satisfied.

Have used for less than a month only. So far so good. Budget high end phone. No heating even after intensive usage. Got it for about 11500. Finger printreader is good, no matter how much u use a fully charged battery of this phone will last for more than a day, camera is just awesome. Very happy thus far. Let's see the durability. Thax to Amazon
It's a phone which does not meet the expectations, not value for money , Amazon or Samsung saying falls information on galaxy m30s, - RAM- company saying 6 GB + 128 - not performing like 6GB RAM its hanging always ,RAM performance is like less than 4GB, - By looking the phone is very good colour, design but plastic body - Camera is good , - Company saying fast charging but it's taking more than 4 hour to full charge - Not a gorilla glass on the screen ,company saying its scratch proof ,but it's already scratches on the glass , - Note 8 pro or Any Honor phone is better than this at the prize range - Finger printreader is just ok only not that much good - Battery life is just fine 6000 mah but getting 4000 mah
Using this device since a week, its features are really amazing !
Likes : SAMOLED DISPLAY ONE UI BATTERY LIFE ( withstands 36hrs solidly) FINGER PRINTREADER ( really quick ) L1 cert - FANTASTIC VIEWING EXPERIENCE NETFLIX, PRIME IN 1080 HD LESS WEIGHT GOOD RAM MANAGEMENT SMOOTH TOUCH ZERO HEATING ISSUE AUDIO OUT WITH DOLBY ATMOS
Dislikes : CAMERA QUALITY ( both front &rear are average , but I think it can be improved in patches ) NO CORNING GORILLA GLASS ( although provided glass is not really bad , additional tempered glass is must ) PLASTIC HOUSING ( just affects the premium feel ) SLIGHT LAG ON HIGH MULTITASKING
This one really a bundle of joy for the budget phone lovers!
