Our investigation into the muddled universe of the Samsung passage level cell phone setup continues - we now have the Galaxy A02s for you. Stretching the boundaries of what can fit a strict financial plan and still be deserving of the identification, the A02s’ trade-offs are what we’re here to evaluate.
We referenced that it’s a befuddling program that Samsung has, and the A02s are likewise accessible as M02s in certain locales. While they do have separate model numbers, the equipment is indistinguishable, so it very well may be said that our discoveries here will apply similarly well to the M02s, despite the fact that it says A02s on our audit unit’s bundling.
The ‘s’ in those names conveys a great deal of importance, as you may already know. System A02 and M02 non-s models exist as well, indistinguishable between them comparably well, however with further minimized internals when contrasted with the A02s and M02s. Keep your eyes open to what it says on the crate.
Along these lines, the Galaxy A02s packs a 6.5-inch LCD - AMOLEDs are excessively costly for this portion. The chipset will not win any honors either - the Snapdragon 450 is over three years of age, however, it is made on a 14mm cycle (contrast with the 28nm Mediatek in the non-s models).

The triple camera on the back is gently deceptive - the 13MP principle module is joined by the standard thing (and tentatively valuable) team of 2MP ‘large scale’ and profundity cameras. Or, in other words, there’s no super-wide camera - you’ll have to take a gander at the A12 for one of these. The 5MP selfie cam is another little downsize.
Samsung didn’t play with the battery, however, and the A02s accompany a 5,000mAh force pack - the same as on the A12 and A02. We wouldn’t call the equipment requesting, so we hope to see incredible perseverance numbers.

Samsung Galaxy A02s unpacking
There’s nothing astounding about the presentation - the A02s ships in a similar bundling as the A12 we had previously and most other moderate Galaxies. Haul the cardboard plate out of the sleeve, and you’ll get the equivalent bundle - the telephone itself, a 15W connector, and a USB-A-to-C link. A straightforward case would have been pleasant, however, every penny is significant in this class, so we’re not irritated by its nonappearance.
