This device is targeted to casual smartphone users who are on a budget but still want all the perks a phone can offer.

However, the new Galaxy A01 boasts of plenty of interesting features that can compete with flagship phones of Tecno, Infinix, Xiaomi, etc, but still, Samsung keeps the price tag on a low. At first glance, you’ll fall in love with this phone. The 5.7-inches Infinity display is nothing but massive. The Samsung Galaxy A01 also boasts of the latest Android OS, HD resolution, and a 2GHz Octa-core processor.

Definitely, this is the best device for everyday life. A decent camera will be best for your social media interaction. Now, let’s take a full dig and explain every details of Samsung Galaxy A01.

  • Resolution: 720 x 1520 pixels
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 439
  • Front Camera: 5-megapixel
  • Rear Camera: 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel
  • RAM: 2GB/32GB

  • Battery Capacity: 3000mAh
  • OS: Android 10, One UI 2.0

Samsung Galaxy A01: Design

The Samsung Galaxy A01 is a lightweight smartphone of 151g despite its large size of 147 x 71 x 8.3mm. This is probably one of the slimmest phones you’ll ever see with this sizeable form factor. However, the phone was built with plastic materials contrary to metallic or glass that are found on other Samsung smartphones. Above all, the Galaxy A01’s smooth curves and slim factor contributed to its comfy one-hand operation.

At first glance, the phone’s design is the first feature that’ll captivate your interest in the phone. The Samsung Galaxy A01 comes with interesting popular design trends that are only seen on today’s flagship devices. Here, we can see a phone with almost zero bezel display, whose front space is covered with glass display.

However, there are some bezel framing surrounding the edges, with a little thick one on the bottom. At the top, there’s an Infinity display cutout notch housing the selfie camera. The volume rockers and power buttons are well positioned on the top-right edge for easy reach.

You can get any of the Galaxy A01 in Black, Blue, and Red color options. The two rear cameras are vertically positioned on the left top corner. Apart from the dual cameras, the only thing that’s on the rear panel is Samsung’s official brand logo. Overall, Samsung Galaxy A01 is quite impressive for a smartphone of this price segment. The simple design, though it’s far from premium, but still manages to impress us with its charming look.

Samsung Galaxy A01: Display

Moving beyond the design, the Galaxy A01 features a 5.7-inches display that works on a screen resolution of 1520 × 720 pixels and a 19.9 aspect ratio. This wide resolution puts the Galaxy A01 display into HD+. This LCD measures 295ppi pixel density.

This specifications makes the A01’s display one of the best, so far mid-range smartphones are concerned. From daily surfing of the internet to entertainment and reading, this display will suit every activity. Images and color reproductions are well detailed and accentuated well enough.

Apart from the display quality, the size is also another interesting feature. A 5.7-inches display is neither too big nor small, making it the ideal choice for average display fans. The phone’s brightness is not the best on Samsung, but not the worst either. You can clearly see and operate your device under sunlight, although auto-brightness mode is missing.

Samsung Galaxy A01: Camera Review

One of the interesting features of this phone is the camera. On the rear, you’ll find dual cameras of 13-MP and 2-MP. The second camera serves as a dense for blurring the image’s background. There’s also a LED flash to further improve the low light photos. Upfront, the phone comes with a 5-MP camera lens for stunning selfie photos.

The dual rear cameras ensure you get decent camera results with the 13-MP main shooter capturing clear objects while the 2-MP lens blurs the photo backgrounds. The two cameras also delivers stunning natural color reproduction, especially in light conditions. The phone’s camera is far from perfect once low light is concerned.

The camera software offers a lot of interesting features and settings. You can choose to use the Live Focus, Pro Mode, HDR, and gesture ginger.

Samsung Galaxy A01: Performance, Software

The Samsung Galaxy A01 runs on Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor with a clock speed of 2GHz. This processor is paired with 2GB RAM to deliver a fast smartphone performance. At a cheap price tag, we expect the phone to be slow, but we’re disappointed by the amazing speed of the Galaxy A01 processor.

The Samsung Galaxy A01 packs 16GB/32GB inbuilt storage on their system. The 16GB variant is quite poor as we’re used to having bigger storage capacity on mid-range smartphones. Moreover, after subtracting what’s used by the system, you won’t get anything more than 8GB. However, the only solution here’s external storage. You can install up to 512GB SDcard which can be a makeweight for the lackluster internal storage.

Launching apps won’t take you less than a second and the easy flow of switching screens and multi-tasking is very satisfying. The phone never struggle to run casual games smoothly.

However, the only imperfection comes on when trying to play high-end 3D games. In this case, the game can still play, but you’ll experience some lags and won’t be able to enjoy the highest graphic settings.

Moving beyond the software, the Samsung Galaxy A01 runs on Android 10 OS based One UI 2.0 user interface. With the latest operating system, users can enjoy the latest software features that are absent from their predecessors. Unfortunately, there’s no fingerprint sensor, making you rely only on password unlock, or using the Face Unlock method as security options.

Samsung Galaxy A01: Battery Capacity

The Samsung Galaxy A01 is powered by a non-removable 3000mAh battery capacity. Samsung claimed the battery can last up to 11.5 days on standby mode, and talk time of 19.7 hours. However, the Galaxy A01 battery is not the biggest you can find on a 2020 smartphone, but it tried by giving users strong battery life. Nevertheless, the phone offers up to 7.75W fast charging capability which can cut down time spent on charging the phone.

Samsung Galaxy A01: Price in Nigeria and Availability

From our review and description above, there’s no doubt that this is one of the affordable smartphones you can buy in Nigeria 2020. At a price tag of ₦44,000 ($115), you can get a phone with an average display, dual camera, and fast performance from the 2GHz processor.
