Samsung Galaxy A30


Samsung's strategy for its mid-range and budget phones used to rely on having serious brand distinction. At the premium end sat the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note phones. In the middle, you'd find Galaxy A phones, and at the budget end, Galaxy J phones.

In 2019, Samsung has simplified its branding, bringing its budget and mid-range phones under the Galaxy A umbrella. The Galaxy A30 sits just under the mid-range space with a specification set that's a little more appealing than the entry level Galaxy A20, although you might not realise it at first glance.
