Samsung Galaxy M30s Review: Worth Upgrading from Galaxy M30

Samsung released the Galaxy M30s today in India which is an upgraded version of the Galaxy M30 launches earlier this year. The smartphone comes with an upgraded camera, processor and a massive battery which Samsung been teasing for so long. The smartphone is priced at Rs 13,999 for the 4GB RAM variant and Rs 16,999 for the 6GB RAM variant.

Today we are going to tell you about our first impressions of this smartphone and will find out how improved is the camera in Galaxy M30s than the Galaxy M30.

Design and Build

Samsung Galaxy M30s is no different than Galaxy M30 in terms of design and form factor. The smartphone looks the same from all sides except for the camera module at the back which is wider than before. Thee module change is only for the design purpose, there is extra senor to hide inside that wider module.

Other than that, the smartphone has a different type of gradient on the back panel. Instead of going with the same vertical gradient, we have a more unnatural horizontal gradient at the back of the phone. The smartphone comes with a polycarbonate unibody design which makes it a bit durable than a smartphone with a back panel.

The smartphone looks sleek and the One UI makes the smartphone easier to use and navigate through the interface. The smartphone comes with a Type c port at the bottom and a headphone jack. The SIM card tray comes with a dedicated micro SD card slot so you don’t have to compromise on that.


Samsung has always been making the best displays in smartphones and Galaxy M30 is no exception. The smartphone comes with a 6.4 inches FHD+ Super AMOLED display which comes with a great brightness level and contrast ratio. There is a notch provided on the display which Samsung calls it Infinity-U display.

The display does not come with any protection on it so you have to protect it with a screen protector. One of the changes which we found is that the chin on Galaxy M30s is a bit smaller than the Galaxy M30. Rest all is completely similar to what Galaxy M30 offered in the display segment before.


Another thing that Samsung upgraded in the Galaxy M30s from the Galaxy M30 is the processor. Last time we got the Exynos 7904 but this time we got a rather powerful processor which is Exynos 9611. This is the same processor that we get in the latest Samsung Galaxy A50s.

The processor is capable of running modern games like PUBG Mobile at high graphic settings and frame rates. The benchmark results of this processor are really impressive. And when it is paired with 6GB RAM, you get a smooth multitasking experience. The smartphone comes with a Game booster built into the software to yield a better gaming experience.


The camera in Galaxy M30s is a triple camera setup just like before but this time we get a 48MP main sensor. The other sensors are an 8MP wide sensor and a 5MP depth sensor for portrait shots. The smartphone comes with a 16MP front-facing for taking great selfies and video calling. The smartphone comes with an 80-degree wide-angle sensor for wide-angle landscape pictures.

The camera comes with a 48MP sensor which takes normal 16MP pictures, there is a dedicated feature to enable 48MP pictures. The 48MP pictures come out to be a bit more detailed than the normal shot with all the color reproduction and contrast intact. The cameras sure improved from the Galaxy M30 and it shows in the camera samples.

Battery and Other Features

One of the main features which are in the limelight even before the launch of Galaxy M30s is its 6000 mAh battery. The 6000 mAh battery can give you a whole 2 days of battery backup. The 15W fast charger which comes inside the box helps the smartphone to charge faster than. The smartphone gives you a better battery backup than any other smartphone.

The Galaxy M30s comes with a physical fingerprint sensor at the back and face unlock for security. Both of the options works really fast and accurately, sure the face unlock is not as secure as the fingerprint sensor.


The Samsung galaxy M30s is a great smartphone at this price range and the best part is the battery of course. You get an upgraded processor and a awesome triple camera setup with a 48MP main sensor. The smartphone is a whole package if you want a branded smartphone rather than a Chinese smartphone.
