A lot of cell phones come out every month, and you get overwhelmed pretty quickly.
New technology or basic model – what’s the difference?This model, the Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB uses Android, which is already a choice in the telephone world.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
The design of this Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.

Is the Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB compatible for nomadic use?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB’s really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.3 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Even less good for watching a movie.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
The device is equipped with Wifi.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Important when you’re away from home.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.And therefore several operators on this model.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
We found out that this Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.There is only 3000 mAh, which is low for normal use.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
On the question of loading, Samsung has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also simply listen to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
We would have liked the Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s one of the worst in the business.An 5.3 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1480.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
Samsung sought to improve the audio experience.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The Samsung phone, for video games?
Smartphone games now require power.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
Our tests put this Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.Its Mediatek MT6739 (28 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.It’s 16 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.But some of you will need more; that’s why Samsung has left a free slot for a memory card.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its 3000 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Efficiency for audio and video
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Samsung has a long history of designing quality products.
It’s a surprise from Samsung.This model thus has only one objective.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.It’s not the best device for making selfies.So photo retouching is not exceptional.This Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
What about the Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB?
This Galaxy A01 Core 16 GB is not good for all uses.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
