Hello to everyone who looked!
A couple of months ago, I urgently needed to buy a smartphone for a loved one, not demanding on bells and whistles, but the main thing is that without brakes and with a big screen =) We considered Samsung's A series - A5 (2017) / A6 / A6 + / A7 / - the choice fell on Samsung Galaxy A6 PLUS 2018
Thanks to appearance, the choice was made in favor of the A6 Plus - because the phone was intended as a gift for a man.
From the manufacturer, initially out of the box, the smartphone goes to the OS - Android 8 - the familiar Samsung interface.
🔷 Performance & Power Consumption
An important point when choosing a phone was a capacious battery. This smartphone has 3500 mAh - it’s not even bad for such a large screen. I was also pleased that the processor of this phone - Snapdragon 8 cores of 1.8 and 3 GB of RAM - manufacturers balanced the iron filling and all this together gives stable operation without brakes. There is a split screen mode, power allows it.
There are two types of device protection and data security for this phone - fingerprint and face recognition - a decent set for such a budget smart. On the basis of this, you can close your data in a special folder, and no one can climb into it without your face or finger) There is also a good smart lock function - it does not block the device if - you personally keep it, you are in a safe place (at home), or connected to gadgets (watches or a computer on board a car), as well as using voice
Because the smartphone, although it’s a series A, but still it’s very budget, it has a lot of things cut for this series ... Eh samsung ... But when I bought it, I took all this into account, the phone was bought not for an experienced user, and some features I easily sacrificed knowing that they would not be useful. But despite this, the A6 Plus has many necessary functions - S-Pay, S-Health, Always On Display, built-in device support - Samsung Members, Dolby Atmos sound, Bixby, blue filter, dual account on instant messengers and all that what has been said above.
Well, now to the main thing, the main camera of the A6 + smartphone is dual, 16.0 MP + 5.0 MP, with fairly fast lenses 1.9, 1.7. The resolution of the photos is large, the detail of the pictures at daytime is at its height, at night it is already worse, but still decent - at about the level of the years 2014-2015
I will attach photos taken on this phone at the end of the review.
The camera has good blur, high detail, HDR and vibrant focus, natural color reproduction, no saturation, slightly slow focus and no stabilization, but daytime shots are excellent, lack of stub fails only in poor light ... But even in comparison with the A5 2017 camera - the A6 + is much better in this regard (although the devices are of the same level) - a photo for comparison, taken under the same conditions and at the same time.
I have listed the many advantages of the A6 + smartphone above and it's time to talk about the minuses, but maybe they will not be significant for you, and the phone has much more advantages. I purchased the A6 + considering all these disadvantages - and you consider them too.
🔷🔷🔷 Update OS to Android 9.0 Pie 🔷🔷🔷
In mid-April, Serie A began to receive an operating system update to an improved version of Android 9 with the new One UI external shell - that is, the look was redesigned, but the interface remained as convenient
In general, the smartphone is decent, everything is balanced in it, everything you need is there, nothing more ( except for Bixby) . The price is now 14,990 and this is its real adequate price, in 2018 it cost unreasonably expensive about 23,000.
