Samsung Galaxy A60 (Galaxy M40) review

by birtanpublished on September 13, 2020

Everyone this year Samsung has really made huge strides with their mid Rangers however they released so many that it can get confusing as to which is worth getting and which isn't one of their newest phones is the Galaxy a 60 which is the same as the Galaxy and 40 that's

Being released in India so which of these two camps does the phone fallen should you get it should you not I'm Angie for GSM Erina and this is our review of the galaxy a 60

the galaxy a60 is a really satisfying phone to look at the sky blue gradient reminds me of candy and there's a matching sky-blue ring around the main cam and the triple camera setup too on

The back you'll find a fingerprint reader that is easy to reach in quite fast and reliable the phone also has a face unlock option but it's much slower and less secure because it only uses the camera in the front speaking of that

Camera it's housed in a punch hole that's pretty small for an LCD panel and much less obtrusive the ones we've seen from other brands unfortunately and perhaps because it's an LCD there's discoloration around the ring and the

Bottom bezel especially when it's on a white background while the edges of the phone are pleasantly rounded it's a little wide and it doesn't have the best balance when you're using it with one hand

Still the software does allow for easy one-handed use if you're scrolling through the phone if the motion for the back gesture was from the sides rather than the bottom it would be even more comfortable but that's a general 1ui

Decision that I find perplexing the a60 wobbles and flat surfaces unless you use a case included in the box which makes the phone even wider the LCD panel is a bit of an unusual choice for Samsung as we know the company for its excellent

Super AMOLED z' naturally the panel doesn't have blacks as deep as their amyloids but they're not bad and combined with a good brightness and auto mode sunlight legibility is more than good enough unfortunately the black

Theme on one UI also isn't as useful because being an LCD blacks don't provide any battery life savings all the same battery life is quite ok and the a 60 got 86 hours on our battery life tests once you're out of juice you'll

Also get 40% in half an hour thanks to quick charge 2.0 it's not the fastest quick charge out there but at least it's something on the audio front the speaker doesn't get too loud in comparison to most

Phones out today and the maximum volume was a bit weak which might be a problem if your phone rings in the crowd the sound quality itself is average so listening to music isn't bad although it isn't mind blowing

the phone doesn't have a headphone jack but at least it comes with the dongle included in the box I'm actually surprised I'm saying this but when you consider how many manufacturers are just

Leaving it out entirely these days and the dropping cost to Bluetooth headphones wires seem to be going the way of the dodo still we have to say if you do choose a dongle life wired audio quality was impressive for the price

Range the a 60 sports one UI on top of Android Pi which means you get the wide range of options Empson loves to include this means advanced battery settings big speed and the side panel if you want it more minimalistic you can also uninstall

Pre included apps like Samsung Notes the UI ran relatively smoothly with just the occasional slow down future software updates should help in the snapdragon 675 chipset should be more than good enough for a few years it's faster than

The 660 but not quite as fast as the 710 you'll find that the phone is good for multitasking and general use but not the best if you're a heavy gamer still it doesn't seem to have any problems with the occasional game so like gaming

Should be great on this device the galaxy a 60 has a triple camera setup but for being honest it's only two real cameras and a depth sensor during the day photos were good in terms of colors and dynamic range but detail was not so

Great you saw some heavy sharpening halos around straight lines along with corner softness when the subject was further away if you decide to shoot in 32 megapixels there is slightly more detail but not significantly so photo

Rendition isn't well be different taking a photo takes more time and there's no HDR in this mode for some reason it seems to be a common theme that using the full resolution of these high-resolution sensors doesn't usually

Promise better photos if you want that blurred background you should take photos outside during the day with enough light you'll get a nice looking portrait with natural skin tones and good edge detection but in lower light

Or even indoors photos are significantly softer the old stride camera was underwhelming to say the least colors contrast and dynamic range match what the main cam can do but there's a purple fringe around high contrast

Subjects detail is poor and there's even more corner softness it's good enough for social media but that's about it the not so spectacular levels of detail continue to be a trend at night and images look soft there's no night mode

But details in the shadows and bright spots will benefit if you turn the HDR manually as for the ostrich camera and low-light it's far from satisfactory photo speaks for itself the 16 megapixel camera and

The punch hole has an F 2.0 aperture and no autofocus you might have to take a number of selfies to get one that's in focus and even then there's some general softness when in portrait mode the phone also struggles with edge detection the

Galaxy a 60 is not a bad phone but relative to the really strong competition it's just not worth it for the money there are phones like the red McGee Tony Pro out there and the Xiaomi me a three which offer a lot more bang

For your buck there's even a couple of galaxies that are more worth it so sadly if you're a Samsung fan I would say go with another a series device like the galaxy a 50 or the a 70 rather than the a 60 thanks for watching if you enjoyed
