Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A02s

72.5% Samsung Galaxy A02s smartphone review – Korean smartphone with a WLAN problem | Notebookcheck
The current entry-level model from Samsung's Galaxy A series is the A02s. For barely 165 Euros (~$197), the manufacturer includes a triple camera system and a quite large battery. However, there are a lot of competitors, including other inhouse models, and there are also some really basic problems.
Review: The Samsung Galaxy A02s is a dirt-cheap phone you won't hate
Source: Android Police English EN→zh-CN
The Galaxy A02s isn't competing with flagships or even mid-range devices. It's slow enough that some basic software features are just about unusable without a great deal of patience. But everything works, it's $110, and you can depend on Samsung to value your security and keep the phone safe to use for the next four years. It may be slow, but it's reliable. In all, I'm pretty stunned at what you can get today for such a low price. Admittedly, for just $60 more, you can get the $170 Moto G Play, which I also like. The Moto is much, much faster — the new Snapdragon 460 positively flies compared to the somewhat decrepit Snapdragon 450 in the A02s. Plus, the Moto has a fingerprint sensor, among other benefits. The A02s is, by all hardware metrics, a worse smartphone, but Moto's software commitment for most of its phones is basically a joke in 2021; it abandons them so quickly.

Why the Samsung Galaxy A02 & A02s are the most affordable phones now with Digi Prihatin 35 Prepaid Bundle
Source: Tech Nave English EN→zh-CN
In Malaysia, most consumers want to get the best out of the products that they have purchased. This is true even for tech gadget enthusiasts, especially with the current global situation. Digital devices are so important now, as they help us stay connected. But what if someone just wants something affordable, reliable, and easy to use? This is where the Samsung Galaxy A02 and Galaxy A02s come in with the special Digi Prihatin 35 Prepaid Bundle subscription, which offers a rebate of RM300 where subscribers can bring home the latter at only RM95, whereas the former can be theirs absolutely free of charge. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, read on below to find out more about the features of the two phones and the Digi plan.

40% Samsung Galaxy A02s review: Low priced for a reason
Source: Expert Reviews English EN→zh-CN
The Samsung Galaxy A02s feels like a return to the bad old days when cheap handsets sold based on name recognition, even if the internals bore little resemblance to the brand’s trusted products. This may be a Galaxy in name and looks, but the four-year old processor makes it a pretty poor choice in 2021 – especially when the Motorola Moto G10 is £10 cheaper and is the same or better on every metric.

Ultimately, if you're on a tight budget and looking to get the most out of it, perhaps brand loyalty shouldn't be on top of your priorities list, and you should look at competing offers from classic value-oriented makers. If you insist on a Galaxy, certain concessions are inevitable.

64% Samsung Galaxy A02S Review – Entry-Level Can Look Good Too
Source: Pokde English EN→zh-CN
The Samsung Galaxy A02s is a good entry-level smartphone that I would recommend for people who don’t need much from their device, or they simply need a secondary one. At RM529, the Malaysian retail version will only have the 4GB RAM 64GB storage configuration, which will end up performing at least slightly better than our review unit.

Review – Samsung Galaxy A02s: Not so entry-level after all
Source: NLT English EN→zh-CN
We just reviewed the Galaxy S21 Ultra, but now, we’re taking a look at the company’s entry-level smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy A02s has a pretty nice name too – like an anime mecha bot. That aside, here’s our review of the entry-level smartphone, Galaxy A02s. It’s not really that entry-level actually.
