BRIEF GALAXY A10 DESCRIPTION

Design

It’s a standard Samsung design for budget phones in 2019. On the front you get an infinity v-notched display just curved corners with fairly slim bezels and the main body of the phone is made of  very glossy plastic. This plastic attracts lot of finger prints and also it will get scratched quite easily. It doesn’t feel very cheap but still compared to glass back phones you can instantly see that this is a budget phone. The samsung galaxy A10 is a quite light phone being just 160g. Now even though it’s not a one-handed phone the size of the phone feels kind of perfect. For the thickness it’s just 7.9mm. I didn’t like it’s speaker placement. I don’t get it why Samsung did this but it’s a really bads pot for a speaker. you get the headphone jack micro USB charging port.

There are three colorchoices for the Samsung Galaxy A10 and the black one it doesn’t lookproper black but instead it looks kindof grayish black and for the built it’sa fairly well-built phone with no gap but for sure the phone doesn’tlook and feel premium but for the price I wouldsay it’s okay. You can’t complain at this price. If you could increase your budget you could get Samsung Galaxy A50 (Read Our review). A way much better phone than this. But at this this phone is great as well.

Display

The display used on the Samsung Galaxy A10 is the 6.2 inch HD Plus display which has a resolution of 1520x720 with a pixel density of 271 PPI. This display has an aspect ratio of 19:9 and the display looks premium with curved edges and based on the panel quality it’s a fairly decent panel.it’s a LCD display. The colors are a bit dull but for the price it’s fine. The display gets sufficiently bright and hence outdoor visibility isn’t an issue.Overall for the display used on theSamsung Galaxy A10 for this price as I said before it’s a decent display.

Audio

The main speaker unit is a let down for me. it’s mainly because of it’s placement. it’s on the rear of the phone. The speaker unit used here is not a bad one and it gets fairly loud. The audio experience is not enjoyable while gaming. Another issue with this speaker placement is when you receive a call. If your phone is on a table the call alert gets muffled and you will probably miss the ring. You won’t get any headphone bundle with the phone. Well to sum up i think it’s overall decent at this price.

Performance

How the device performs is a very important thing in 2019. It’s a budget phone but there are other options almost in this price range that performs really well Such as Samsung galaxy A50(Read our Review) or Xiaomi redmi note 7 pro (Read our Review). For the Samsung Galaxy A10 the processor is Exynos 7884 which is an octa-core processor. Actually I’m happy to say that this phone performs well for the budget phone. The OS is Android 9 with Samsung’s One UI. This is the best interface that Samsung has ever released. The Galaxy A10 is smooth and works without much issues. Playing games like PUBG it also runs fine to be honest at this price.But still you will notice some frame drops at default medium graphic setting. The main thing i’m happy with the Samsung galaxy A10 is that the device doesn’t get warm even while playing high-end games. One thing that’s not great with the device is that RAM management and actually that’s expected.Because this device just has 2gb of RAM and the RAM management of the device is very aggressive. I feel even though it’s not a powerful processor everything works well and I didn’t experience the usual Samsung slow down. so for the hardware and performance I would say for the price it’s average to good.

Battery

The Samsung Galaxy A10 has a 3400mAh battery. The battery life is pretty good even during heavy use. I could easily make it through a day and the average screen time I get is more than 6 hours. The included charger in the box is a 5V, 1A charger and to charge the phone from 80% to 100% it takes around three hours.

Camera

The main camera is a 13MP camera with F/1.9 and that is a single LED flash right next to the camera. To be honest the shots that the rare camera captures are not good even in good lighting the shots looked kind of soft and the dynamic range is also very average. Overall I ain’thappy with the camera performance both in good lighting as well as low light. The maximum video resolution is 1080p at 30fps and there is no optical image stabilization and overall you can record average clips with the rare camera. it could’ve better to be honest.

Let’s move on to front camera. It’s a 5MP with F/2.0 and the shot really looks soft and blurry even in good lighting and I will say the front camera performance is also average and also for the camera setting and camera modes you get only basic stuff and that’s decent for the price of the phone but for the picture quality that both the cameras capture i really wished it was much better.

Conclusion

If  you want a phone that does all the basic stuff well and provide a very simple user experience and you like the Samsung tag then you will be surely happy if you get the Samsung Galaxy A10. But in doing so you should keep in mind that you are getting a very average camera, a plasticy build and you’re not getting some basic sensors. I would recommended xiaomi redmi note 7 pro (Read our review) if you could increase your budge a bit.
