Overview

Samsung’s entry recently has been very radical with its budget phones approach in the Indian market. Especially with the launch of the M series, Samsung has tried connecting with the Millenials.

This series is welcomed with a change in the design and specifications of how Samsung was in the market. Nonetheless, the fight is still on with its contemporaries like Xiaomi, Asus, and Honor; competition is actually quite close.

Design and Display Size: With the entry of the dew-drop notch design in Samsung, the bezels are sort of negligible on this device. The screen is 6.3inch and quality is good and is slightly better than other smartphones in the range.

Processor: The handset has Exynos 7904 processor which has basically been designed for the mid-range devices. It provides the handset with the latest features in the camera and is very efficient for multi-tasking. It enables smooth computing and gaming experience. The handset is not for heavy gamers though. Also it’s a dual-core processor. There’s no lag as such.

Camera Quality: It has a 13MP regular camera but instead of a depth sensor camera, it has a practical secondary camera and it’ a wide-angle shooter. The front camera is an 8MP shooter. The camera performance is actually qualifiable. It has live Bokeh mode and the wide lens camera works wonders.

Additional features

  • None of the sensors have been skipped in this model, like the gyroscope and the compass sensor and the Youtube 360` is also there.
    Ultra-wide dual camera
  • Widevine L1 for high definition screening.
  • Battery Life: The handset has been provided with fast charging or USB Type C. It also has a massive 5000mAh battery, it will take you almost 2 and a half hours to charge it with the fast charger.
