Samsung made it very clear at the launch of the Galaxy M series that this new series is targeted at young millennial, a market that has been captured by Chinese smartphone makers for a few years now. In order to recapture this audience, the Samsung M series phones have aggressive prices compared to older Samsung models, as well as notched displays, dual or triple camera setups, and big batteries. Samsung already has the) and Galaxy M20 (Review) in the market catering to the sub-Rs. 10,000 and sub-Rs. 15,000 segments, and has now brought in the Galaxy M30 to recapture the Rs. 15,000 – 20,000 segment.

Samsung Galaxy M30 Summary
The Galaxy M30 is Samsung’s offering in the sub Rs. 15,000 segment and sports a Super AMOLED display. We liked the full-HD+ panel which was crisp and got bright enough when outdoors. Powering the phone is a Samsung Exynos 7904 SoC which offers acceptable performance for the price. The processor can handle light to medium tasks but warms up under load. It has 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. It has a dedicated microSD card slot which helps expand storage by up to 512GB.
There is a triple camera setup at the back which clicks good photos and so does the selfie camera. We weren’t happy with the fact that this smartphone shipped with Android Oreo with Samsung Experience UI on top instead of One UI with Android Pie. The 5000mAh battery offers good battery life.
