Short description Samsung Galaxy M02s

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a great camera that has 3 modules (13 MP Wide, 2 MP Macro, 2 MP Depth sensor), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Samsung Galaxy M02s 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).

Important update: this model is updated to Android version 11.
Check the availability of the update version in your region on the manufacturer’s website.

Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Samsung Galaxy M02s introduced a company Samsung in January 2021. It has Android version 10, which if you want, you can update to version 11.

Well, what can I say, Samsung Galaxy M02s is a smartphone of 2021 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Samsung Galaxy M02s screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is PLS IPS-screen with diagonal 6.5″ and with a drop-like notch for selfie camera and sensors.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Samsung Galaxy M02s the case turned out very thick — 9.1 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 5 000 mAh. 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 M02s. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (triple camera smartphones): 13 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro + 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 M02s. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 5 MP Wide. 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 speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. Samsung Galaxy M02s has 8-core Snapdragon 450 (14 nm). You can select the RAM 3 GB or version 4 GB.

Available versions Samsung Galaxy M02s with different amount of built-in memory: 32/64 GB. Note that the more memory, the more expensive the smartphone. And if there was not enough internal memory, then you can save the necessary data on the memory card microSDXC .

Price for Samsung Galaxy M02s: buy or not to buy?

Price Samsung Galaxy M02s at the start of sales was $140. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” and got a very powerful 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 M02s, 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.

The large 6.5-inch touch screen supports HD + resolution (720×1600 pixels, aspect ratio 20: 9), occupies about 81.8% of the front panel area. The smartphone runs Android 10 out of the box. Typically, these budget models do not receive more updates to new versions of the Android operating system. Consider this fact if you want to buy the Samsung Galaxy M02s. Another important thing is that this model does not have an NFC sensor, which means that you will not be able to make contactless payments at the checkout in the store using PayPass.

Three versions of the body color (black, blue and red) will be available for purchase. And also two options for the amount of memory: 32 GB of internal memory + 3 GB of RAM, or 64 GB of internal memory + 4 GB of RAM. Of course, it is better to buy the second option, which has more memory. In this version, the interface and applications will most likely work faster. But, to download a lot of applications, you will also need a microSD memory card, for which the Galaxy M02s has a slot.
