Samsung Galaxy A6 Review

Gadgets Technology

As a budget option to the Samsung Galaxy S9, the Samsung Galaxy A6 is an excellent choice. It lacks some power and looks a little less pretty, but it costs only one third of the price. For many people, a desirable family name and a smart design are enough to warrant the premium price tag. While the Moto G6 Play and Honor 9 Lite offer more for less, it’s hard to ignore that they offer more in nearly every area. This is mainly due to the cameras’ lack of intelligence and the quality of the display. If you pay $368 to £259 (roughly AU$500) for a phone that doesn’t have auto HDR, then Samsung’s OLEDs will outperform a cheap LCD by showing its limited screen resolution more than that of a cheaper

Key Features

The Galaxy S9 family of phones is not affordable to everyone. However, Samsung has a number of phones for those who cannot afford it. Compared to the Samsung Galaxy A6, the Samsung Galaxy A8 simply cuts some of the flashy extras without making that much of a daily compromise. The Samsung Galaxy A6 however has more obvious cuts, made to further lower its price. Although it has an OLED screen with an aspect ratio of 18.59, the resolution is only 1480 x 720 pixels. There is no USB-C charging on this device, which is powered by an aging micro USB connector. Moreover, most modern camera features such as optical image stabilization (OIS), advanced processing, and auto HDR are absent as well. As can be seen from the comparison, this phone makes similar compromises as the Moto G6 Play, a much Camera hardware here is better than the one in the iPhone 5s, though. A 16MP rear camera with f/1.7 lens and a 16MP front camera with f/1.9 is on the Samsung Galaxy A6 to capture pictures and videos. Besides 32GB and 64GB versions, the phone comes in 32GB. We’re looking at the 32GB version today.


Besides build and design, Samsung Galaxy A6 also has a lot to offer. Besides the Galaxy A series, there are other Galaxy phones with them. In contrast, this is not a glass-backed device, a style in favor at the moment not just for Samsung, but also for every other phone designer. Aluminum makes up the back and sides of the phone, and on the back are thin non-metallic loops that hold the antennae. Having these loops visually breaks up the Samsung Galaxy A6’s surface and prevents it from looking like an ultra-simple An edge-to-edge piece of 2.5D glass, slightly curved at the edges, sits on the front of the computer. In addition, there’s a thin strip of plastic between metal and glass to prevent the display from cracking if the phone drops. Does the Samsung Galaxy A6 excite you or do you find it I don’t think so. this phone is a refreshing change from glass-obsessed ones, and it’s slim and light as well. With a thickness of 7.7mm and a width of 70.8mm, the Samsung Galaxy A6 is both thinner and a bit wider than The system is simple to use. A fingerprint reader can be found just below the camera lens on the back of the Samsung Galaxy A6. Although it’s a little too high, it’s not recessed very well, and it’s not especially fast, but it is reliable and looks good, like it almost merges One obvious feature is the lack of USB-C. Although this charger shape is usually associated with fast charging, the reversible connector is actually what makes this charger stand out. When you have to dig around in a bedside table at 1130pm to find the USB cable to charge your phone with Micro USB, it can be a hassle. Fast charging is possible with micro USB, but this phone does not support it. There is a standard adapter in the box as well as no option for fast charging when we tried a Samsung Adaptive fast charger. Is there anything else we can compromise on? In addition to the side buttons that are plastic rather than metal, the Samsung Galaxy A6’s SIM tray has a less appealing design than Samsung’s higher-end devices. You’ll find a tray for your nanoSIM as well as a much larger one for the microSD, with a slot for a second SIM blocked out. The phone has a second SIM slot in other countries, which suggests it may have one here.


With a screen size of 5.6 inches and an 18.59 aspect ratio, the Samsung Galaxy A6 has an elegant design. On this phone, more of the front has a screen than on mid-range phones from 2016 to 2017. A few parts of the display are very powerful while others do not meet standards within the price range. The powerful elements are those that usually pertain to OLED screens. I like the contrast here, and there is a lot of punch, depending on what you want. In addition to selecting the color profile, you can also select a style and application that will dramatically alter how the phone appears. As with most Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy A6 includes an adaptive display mode default setting. In other words, it maximizes perceived brightness by bringing out the vibrancy of colors, increasing the contrast between tones and employing color temperature. That’s the color strategy used by the majority of high-end However, Samsung keeps it in check, so you don’t have to worry about your photos looking overly saturated when you view them in the OLED phones by Samsung are known for their high quality. There are other color modes you should try if you are a display purist The three categories are Film, Photo, and Basics. This is roughly equivalent to the Adobe RGB (Photo) and DCI-P3 (Cinema) standards as well as sRGB (Basic) specifications. It is impossible to pick a favorite out of the three. It’s really just a matter of picking which one makes Android look best to you. There is a need to resolve the Unlike some of the cheaper Android devices available for less than $200, the Samsung Galaxy A6 has a display that is less than Full HD. There are 1480 pixels by 720 pixels on it. It was just a few months ago that we said, despite the low resolution, screens like this could still look pretty decent, but the difference here was more noticeable. To begin with, in this case we are required to pay more. A 1080p resolution is a feature offered by practically every other manufacturer for the same price. The Samsung Galaxy A6’s screen type has also been cited as a problem. The Samsung OLEDs use a pixel arrangement known as PenTile, which allows subpixels to share space. There is no sharing of sub pixels in LCD screens. This causes the Samsung Galaxy A6’s screen to look a little fuzzy, particularly when small fonts are displayed. You’ll be able to adjust fairly quickly to the day-to-day effects, but play an intense game like PUBG and small player names may be a challenge. Also, the Samsung Galaxy A6’s screen is not as bright as those of Samsung’s high-end phones, and it does not contain dynamic features to improve visibility in the sunlight. The phone’s price is comparable to any other phone at its price range in this regard.
