Samsung Galaxy M30 review

Samsung Galaxy M30 is the third edition of the M series after the M10 and M20. It is the biggest version among the three and powerful one too. With Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, Exynos 7904 SoC, triple rear camera setup, and large 5,000mAh battery, Samsung Galaxy M30 starts from Rs. 14,990.  But, is this device worth considering? Is it giving nice value at this price point? Let’s check it out in the Samsung Galaxy M30 review below:

Design and Display

The Samsung Galaxy M30 has gone with the new design on the front which makes this phone look premium and solid. The device looks gorgeous in hands. The back panel looks like plastic which might be disappointing for some users- but it is what it is. On the back panel, you can find a triple rear vertical camera setup, a fingerprint sensor and Samsung branding in the middle. The fingerprint sensor works pretty fast and easy to reach and you can easily avail great deals on this phone using Snapdeal Sale offer.

On the right, you can find the power button and volume rockers while on the left, you get a SIM Tray. On the bottom, you can see a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and loudspeaker and on the top, there is a microphone hole.

Coming to the display, the Samsung Galaxy M30 packs 16.21 centimeters (6.4-inch) FHD+ multi-touch capacitive touchscreen with 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution and 16M color support. The company has used sAMOLED Infinity-U display in this device which is the new display coming in the new Samsung devices. The bezels get really thin and the dew notch sits with the camera on top. The new display is sure shot the best thing about this device and USP too.


Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy M30 has an octa-core Samsung Exynos 7904 processor with two ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 1.8GHz and six Cortex A-53 cores clocked at 1.6GH. The processor is coupled with two RAM and internal storage variants- 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, and 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The internal storage can be further expanded up to 512GB via a dedicated microSD card. The device carries the same processor as the Galaxy M20. When it comes to day-to-day tasks, one will not feel any stutters or hiccups.  Multi-tasking in this device is also fine.

While using the headphones, you can enable the Dolby Atmos. The loudspeaker is not that loud but little soft.


When it comes to gaming, a session of PUBG at medium graphics made this phone little laggy. So, try to ply the game at Smooth setting. The device gets heats up in intense gaming session and drinks the battery fast too.

Cameras and Battery Life

Coming to the cameras, the Galaxy M30 packs a triple rear camera setup includes a 13MP camera, a 5MP secondary camera, 5MP third lens with f1.9 aperture, 2.2 wide angles, and 2.2 flashes. For selfies, there is a 16MP front camera with f2.0 aperture. The camera has Panorama, Pro, Beauty, Live Focus, Stickers, and Continuous Shot modes. The performance of M30 in capturing images in daylighting was excellent and above par of compared with other devices in this range. In low light, the shots came out were averagely good with fine grain and minimal noise.

The Samsung Galaxy M30 houses a high capacity 5,000mAh battery. It can give you a large battery life. The device easily works for a day and a half for typical users. In the HD video loop test, the Galaxy M30 gave about 17 hours which is quite a big deal.

Other Features

The Samsung Galaxy M30 runs Android 9.1 Orea paired with Samsung Experience 9.5. Now, this might go against the phone as we have seen Android 9 Pie with One UI in Samsung A30 recently which is priced slightly higher than this device. The connectivity and sensors include Bluetooth, WI-Fi, and GPS, accelerometer, proximity sensor, gyroscope, and compass.

Samsung Galaxy M30 comes in two color variants: Gradation Blue and Gradation Black and these colours you can easily order using Flipkart Sale offer.


The Samsung Galaxy M30 is a nice device to put your hands on. Priced at Rs. 14,990, it comes with a brilliant Super AMOLED display, 4 gigs of RAM, big battery and above par cameras. Android Oreo and no One UI in this device is something which is going against it. But, still, the Galaxy M30 is worth its value. If you are looking for better options, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro, Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2, and Realme U1 can be worth considering too.
