Big, heavy and with Samsung essence
You can’t ask for great bragging about a smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy A02 since that’s not your war. By cons, the phone maintains a correct appearance, offers recognizable aesthetics in the brand, is available in four different colors (black, gray, red and blue) and makes plastic the dominant material.
The screen amounts to 6.5 inches with a resolution in line with the category of the phone: HD +. TFT Infinity-V panel with top cutout in the shape of a drop of water, absence of fingerprint reader and generous frames that not only thicken the final dimensions, but also its weight. The Samsung Galaxy A02 raises the scale to 206 grams.
In terms of photographic capture, the Samsung Galaxy A02 shows its restraint: dual rear camera with a 13 megapixel sensor as the main; which is accompanied by a 2 megapixel macro camera. Ahead you can see the 5 megapixel front camera; housed under the ‘notch’ marking on the screen.
Other details of the Samsung Galaxy A02 are its large 5,000 mAh battery (with ‘slow’ charging), it has a triple SIM tray and includes Dolby Atmos.
