Samsung Galaxy A02 Review

Samsung Galaxy A02 Analysis and Reviews with Specs and Features

Samsung launched this Samsung Galaxy A02 on January 27, 2021, a mobile phone whose technical sheet makes it clear that it will fight in the entry range. This smartphone is characterized by its 6.5-inch screen with HD + resolution and its 5000 mAh battery with which we will obtain great autonomy. In the photographic and video section we will have a 13 MP + 2 MP double rear camera (macro) and a 5 MP front camera.

The Samsung Galaxy A02 is placed in the manufacturer’s catalog as one of the most accessible versions in the entry range, with an unknown official price, for the moment, but which should be around 120 euros according to the characteristics it presents.

The Galaxy A02 is just 9.1mm thin and has a striking color stripe design, available in black and blue. The highlight of this new economic smartphone from the Korean manufacturer is a large capacity battery that reaches 5,000 mAh, a double rear camera with a 13 MP sensor in front and a more or less current design.

Connectivity

At the connectivity level, we cannot demand too much from the phone. It doesn’t even have a fingerprint reader but at least it maintains a 3.5mm minijack connector to plug in headphones. A Micro USB port is added to this for battery charging.

At the wireless level, we have Bluetooth 5.0, connectivity with Wi-Fi networks 802.11b (2.4GHz), 802.11g (2.4GHz), 802.11n (2.4GHz) and GPS. The 4G chip of the processor allows you to navigate LTE networks with a download speed of 150 Mbps or 50 Mbps upload.
