Samsung Galaxy A6+: An incredibly average smartphone

The Samsung Galaxy A6+ is the new mid-range smartphone. It costs Rs 23,990, which is pretty higher compared to what the phone offers. The handset comes with a 6-inch super AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 450 processor, coupled with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage.

Phone’s design looks inspired by Galaxy S9 with curvy edges. It is made up of all metal unibody. The fingerprint scanner is beneath the camera lens, which makes the lens smudged with our fingerprints. Overall, the handset looks decent.

Galaxy A6+ is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, which is disappointing. The chip is not good considering the phone is priced at Rs 23,990. There are many phones in the market that come with better processors and costs way below the quoted price of the phone. However, the regular performance of the phone scores fairly decent but gaming is not smooth enough as there are regular drops in the frame. So the device is not a good choice for heavy gamers.

The camera of the phone A6+is just average. The phone is the first in the A series that has a dual-lens camera, 16MP primary sensor with f1.7 aperture and a 5MP secondary sensor for depth sensing. The live focus mode has to be used to get the Bokeh effect in your images. The camera is decent at capturing detailed and sharp pictures. However, the camera disappoints during the low light conditions.

At the front, the device has a 24 MP sensor which is the highest resolution front camera of Samsung’s A series. The quality of photo is something to talk about with wonderful detailing. But, in low light, there are problems with respect to focus and soft detailing of the images. There is an LED flash in the front, but that makes the photo looks like it is been given that artificial touch. Also, the Face Unlock feature struggles and tests our patience.

The phone has a Dolby Atmos in headphones and a quick finger print scanner. The battery life is excellent and we can sure place our bet on the longitivty when fully charged.

All in all the phone at this price is a bit worrisome deal for Samsung, considering there are better phones on display at lower its price. If you are Samsung follower then you can consider this else you can give this a skip.
