The device comes with a great display, good cameras and decent UI and battery, all of which make the Samsung Galaxy M30 a very worthy contender in its segment. It may not be right on top of the sub Rs. 15,000, but is definitely one of the best in the price range.

The Galaxy M30 does come across as a good device for the price. Its only major drawback is performance, which will be a factor if you are a gamer or a heavy multi-tasker.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy M30 is a well-rounded smartphone and is definitely a good upgrade over the previously launched Galaxy M20. Just by shelling out few extra bucks, you get a triple camera setup, a better front shooter, an AMOLED display, and dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity.

With the Galaxy M30 the company wants to tap in the young smartphone users. The smartphone offers a full HD and bright display which is not common in the other budget smartphones. Along with this, the massive 5000 mAh battery with fast charging can be a deal breaker for many. The triple rear camera is also a good proposition but is not the high point of the smartphone. Customers who were looking for a Samsung smartphone in this price segment can definitely consider buying the Galaxy M30.

The Galaxy M30 almost renders the Galaxy M20 redundant. For the extra 2000 bucks, you get an AMOLED screen, better selfies, better connectivity (dual-band Wi-Fi), and a better portrait mode for the rear camera. If you are not much into high-end gaming, would value display quality over the camera performance, and are restricted by a budget, the Galaxy M30 won’t disappoint.

Samsung Galaxy M30 is probably one of the best-designed smartphones in this price band. The display certainly looks interesting and the camera performance in broad daylight is quite decent in our opinion. The battery is a strong talking point of this device, though it is not able to handle most of the high-end games effectively. The user interface seems to be dated now and the amount of bloatware and spammy notifications spoils the whole experience.

The reliable option

It gets a stunning AMOLED display, which will be hard to beat by any other brand in this segment, a good-looking gradient design and a battery that doesn't quit.

NDTV

Great display, solid battery life

from NDTV

It is one of a few smartphones at this price to sport a vivid Super AMOLED panel, which we liked. We also found the big battery very helpful as we could stay away from the charger a lot longer than usual. The cameras are good in daylight but could do with a few tweaks for better low-light photography.
