Android version and market relevance

In December 2019 Samsung company introduced its new smartphone Samsung Galaxy A01. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards, which is running on 10.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 10 already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

5.7-inch PLS TFT touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Samsung Galaxy A01 and has an original solution for placing a selfie camera in the form of a small round hole in the screen. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 8.3 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 3 000 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — big smartphone with very thick case and average battery.

This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Samsung Galaxy A01. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (dual camera smartphones): 13 MP Wide + 2 MP Depth sensor. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate her 4 out of 5.

The frontcamera is also in Samsung Galaxy A01. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 5 MP with a regular lens. These characteristics for qualitative selfies it will be not enough, therefore we advise to look others selfie smartphones in our catalog. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Samsung Galaxy A01 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 439. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 2 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 16/32 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Samsung Galaxy A01: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Samsung Galaxy A01 got into our price segment “Ultra cheap smartphones up to $100” and began to be sold in January 2020 at a price of $52. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Samsung Galaxy A01 is a very smart smartphone with a large screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery here is absolutely normal.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
