Samsung made it very clear at the launch of the Galaxy M series that this new series is targeted at young millennials, 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 Galaxy M10 (Review) 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.

  • Review after using for 10 days
    Shweta Chauhan (Mar 24, 2019) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    The Samsung Galaxy M30 is a brilliant phone which excels in day to day performance. The phone comes with a great set of specifications which makes it the best bang for the buck. The Samsung Galaxy M30 has a beautiful 6.4 inch display which is full HD. The tall aspect ratio of the phone makes it feel very comfortable in the hand. The phones gets the juice from its Exynos octa-core processor which is paired with 4 GB of RAM. It also has an inbuilt 64 GB of internal memory which can be further expanded via a microSD card. The phone runs the latest Android Pie 9.0 out of the box and has all the required sensors on the phone like the proximity and light sensors. The fingerprint scanner on the device is placed on the back of the phone which is convenient to use. The phone is also paired with a humongous 5000 mAh battery which would last the user for a full day with heavy usage. The triple camera setup on the back of the camera click great pictures in the normal day light. The night light photography on the phone is also decent. The phone comes with several camera features which capture the moments perfectly. Overall, the phone is a winner in all departments and is priced at a reasonable price bracket which provides a seamless experience to the user.

  • A Game changing device.
    Rahul Nair (Apr 10, 2019) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Samsung has nailed this market segment with the inception of M series of smart phones, my latest pick which is the M30 brings segment best features like Super AMOLED display, Triple cameras, etc. The display is beyond words, this AMOLED display has great contrast, deep blacks, really saturated and popping colours which is the absolute best for consuming media like Netflix, YouTube, etc. And the display is pretty huge too at 6.4 inches but thanks to its minimal bezels and infinity-U notch, the overall footprint is quite handy! The M30 has a giant battery clocking at 5000 mAh which is more than plenty for day and a half's usage and yet the device is reasonably sleek and ergonomic. And this time around Samsung went with a gradient back which in person looks very appealing. The back of the device also houses THREE cameras! The ultra wide angle lens is again the segment first and is really really convenient. The cameras in general is great with pretty good dynamic range once the HDR is turned on and the selfie camera has a lot of details and again has pretty good dynamic range with great skin tones. Samsung M30 has pretty impressive performance and is exactly why it's plenty fun to play PUBG and other games with heavy graphics, and the device never runs out of steam because of it's 6 gigabytes of LPDDR4 RAM. To sum it up, the Samsung Galaxy M30 has the right ingredients for a perfect smart phone for us millennials i.e. exceptional display, humongous battery, splendid cameras and mighty performance for the price that I paid.

  • Totally Game changer
    Rishabh Tripathi (Apr 10, 2019) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Techno giant Samsung has come up with this amazing phone with great specs at this cost. Broadly, the camera is lit, processor is soothing, amazing display and strong battery. Starting with the looks, Samsung M30 is very handy, light weight and good body finish. The 6.4"" display is among the most catchy features supported by Android v8.1. It is powered with octa core processor with 6 GB RAM. The sensors include Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Compass, Gyroscope. All these sensors makes it apt for vivid and fast gaming experience. The 126° wide view is something hard to get and another add on to this device. It has c port charger that charges quite fast. Overall this device is worth the money and is a 5/5 phone.

  • Great phone
    Aidan Dsilva (Apr 9, 2019) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Very good screen clarity, it looks very neat and appealing, Camera is very good, low light photography is excellent. Fingerprint sensor is fast and it has good speed which helps me switch between apps smoothly. Gaming on this phone is awesome and it doesn't lag while playing games like PUBG and NFS. The 5000mah battery helps me almost never run out of charge . The charger included with the phone charges my phone in a matter of minutes. The AMOLED display helps me see clearer images and lets me watch movies in high definition.The Dolby digital feature helps me listen to music in high quality sound with a beautiful infinity V cut display the phone looks better than anyone. I love it.

  • An excellent investment
    jessica pereira (May 15, 2019) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    The Samsung Galaxy M30's triple camera feature is absolutely amazing and helps in capturing every detail. The phone is super slim and the 90% display feature makes it even better. For a college going student like myself, the price makes it really affordable. The battery life is very long lasting. The fingerprint scanner as well as the face scanner is very efficient. The HD display quality makes watching videos a whole new experience. Buying this phone is one of the smartest decisions I've made. The phone lives up to its potential. Smartphones usually don't excite me but i am super pumped to use this phone. The phone has 128GB internal memory as well as expandable storage upto 512GB
