Short description Samsung Galaxy A02

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a usual good processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a great camera that has 2 modules (13 MP Wide, 2 MP Macro), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Samsung Galaxy A02 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Versions: SM-A022F, SM-A022F/DS.

Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Samsung Galaxy A02 we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Samsung in January 2021. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Samsung Galaxy A02 works on Android 10 and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2021.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Samsung Galaxy A02 is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. The manufacturer could add support for fifth-generation networks to this smartphone, but did not. Perhaps not to raise the price, or for other reasons. If for you the presence of support for 5G networks in a new smartphone is very important, then we recommend that you go to this page in the catalog — all 5G smartphones on Android.

Screen, body and battery

It is worth paying attention to good 6.5-inch capacitive PLS IPS touchscreen smartphone Samsung Galaxy A02. A real shoveler, which is great for watching videos, surfing the Internet and full-screen games. You will be very surprised at how much information is placed on one screen. But, unfortunately, with one hand you will not be comfortable with using a smartphone. In addition, Samsung Galaxy A02 has very small frames around the screen (speaking in numbers, the screen occupies from 80% to 90% of the area of the entire front panel. And drop-like notch above the screen adds recognition to the smartphone and increases the screen area, but does not increase the physical size. The thickness of the case is 9.1 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 5 000 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (dual camera smartphones): 13 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Samsung Galaxy A02 has one module: 5 MP with a regular lens. And this, of course, is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

And write a few words about the performance of Samsung Galaxy A02. Of course, the very first thing that will be discussed is the processor. The model received a 4-core processor Mediatek MT6739WM.

The second performance characteristic in our opinion is the amount of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy A02 has 3 installed on the RAM.

The built-in flash memory of this model has the volume 32 GB The manufacturer did not forget about the support of memory cards in the smartphone. Here you can install a card microSDXC.

Price for Samsung Galaxy A02: buy or not to buy?

Price Samsung Galaxy A02 at the start of sales was $110. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” and got a good processor, a huge touch screen, and the front camera is not too cool with a decent main camera.

If you want to buy Samsung Galaxy A02, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.

Samsung Galaxy A02 announcement: dual camera, 6.5-inch screen, Android 10 and price of about $100

The new Galaxy A02 smartphone has a price lower than the Galaxy A02s (around $150), which was announced recently in November 2020. Both models have similar characteristics: screen diagonal, battery capacity, body thickness, internal memory and RAM.

Highly affordable Samsung Galaxy A02 announced in Thailand

The Samsung Galaxy A02 came out cheaper for two reasons that we noticed. First, the Galaxy A02 uses the MediaTek MT6739W chipset instead of the Snapdragon 450 of the Galaxy A02s. Secondly, the Galaxy A02s has a triple main camera, while the Galaxy A02 has a dual camera with 13MP + 2MP sensors.

Samsung Galaxy A02 has already started selling in Thailand for THB 2.999 (that’s about $100/€82). It is not yet known when it will be available in other countries.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
