Samsung Galaxy M02 Review - Worth Buying a Cheaper Price

The more choices for consumers today, which can be 'translated' into two meanings. The first, make consumers confused because the type is now more and more. Secondly, Samsung can target more precision consumer targets. Because even thin price difference, there is a choice.

Have a minor difference from the Galaxy A02, who is the target of the consumers targeted by Samsung through the cheapest M series lines? And what when compared to competitors in the same price range? Here are my reviews about the Samsung Galaxy M02.


Although it comes at a very affordable price, it is not a limit to consumers to get an interesting and comfortable smartphone in their grasp. Bring the same design as the Galaxy A02, Samsung Galaxy M02 is classified as stylish in its class, complete with additional textures on the back body.

Apart from different color options (blue & red), patterns or white spots on the back body of the Samsung Galaxy M02 much less. Even so, it still looks attractive, especially the bright color option. Indeed, the dimensions are relatively large with a weight of more than 200 grams.

The rest is normal, with the protrusion of the rear camera module, without the presence of fingerprint sensors, complementary accessories such as soft cases, or anti-scratch layers.


Use a 6.5-inch IPS PLS screen, the Samsung Galaxy M02 is classified as able to provide good content of content in its class. The saturation is quite good or not too pale, although brightness can still be even better. The bezel is also a little thick, especially at the bottom.

Have HD + resolution, not much can be complained about, considering the cheap price. A little complaint I feel, the ability of the auto-brightness feature does not work properly - often lighting is still too dim than it should be. Hopefully, only that software will be.

With such a screen, unfortunately, the user cannot use it for multitasking or run two applications simultaneously split-screen. And when displaying certain colors, Screen Bleed looks thin at the bottom of the screen. Still at a reasonable level, anyway.


When the competitors are mostly present with one main camera, Samsung can provide extra value through the setup of two rear cameras. The main sensor is 13MP F / 1.9, plus a 2MP f / 2.4 sensor for close-range photos (macro). Just like A02, not equipped with night mode until portrait mode using digital processing.

In quality, still acceptable, again considering the price huh. Dynamic Range is quite narrow, some photos look very smooth, and the 5MP camera f / 2.0 is also standard. Unlike the Redmi 9a which can produce portrait photos from the rear camera to professional mode, for example.

Hope to make high-quality photos? Of course, it will be wrong. But if you just capture the moment to be distributed to WhatsApp groups and social media, it is still relatively okay. Video recording is also certainly not equipped with EIS, a maximum resolution of 1080p 30fps.


More prioritizing ease of use than rich in features. Even features such as changing the virtual button option at the bottom of the screen to full gesture touch are removed at One UI 2.0 Core on the Samsung Galaxy M02. The first time I saw a smartphone that this passage feature.

No big deal too, anyway. Laying back and multitasking buttons can still be exchanged. The fun is a simple, even suitable look and will be comfortable for to parents use. With big icons and not much bloatware, it's easy for them to learn it.

Samsung Galaxy M02 Review - Performance


Running the MediaTek MT6739W chipset with 28nm fabrication, this smartphone is also suitable for children's school needs. Because, with poor GPU performance, games like pubg mobile cannot be enjoyed from this smartphone. Especially with the capacity of the RAM that was released at 2GB.

That is, more applications need a reload process from the start. For other purposes like zoom, it's okay. An entertainment device is also suitable, through 32GB of internal storage. Still not enough? Can be added a microSD card to 1TB capacity.


With a 'limited performance' processor and the basic screen specifications, automatically also helps consume Samsung Galaxy M02 battery power. Initially, I would think a 5,000 mAh battery was just enough, considering the chipset still used 28nm fabrication.

But this smartphone is indeed able to bring the identity of the Samsung Galaxy M Series. The use of standard or not intensive (well, want to intensively, open many applications is not convenient) very easy for two days of use. Of course, the charging process will be long because it still uses Micro USB, and without Fast Charging.

Through the Samsung Galaxy M02, Samsung wants to show if they can now present a smartphone that is quite competitive in its class. If possible in the past year, it can present a similar device for $ 103.74 and above, it can now be reduced to $ 78.63 (the price depends on the place of purchase).

Although indeed, some of the competitors can provide superior features. Even so, Samsung is still superior in several points, such as the presence of additional camera sensors, a simple One UI display without many ads, and microSD card support to 1TB capacity.
