In our present times when every event is practically being done virtually, including schooling, a smartphone and internet connection have become necessities. The COVID-19 pandemic forced us into this situation. However, not every Filipino family can afford to arm each child with a mobile phone that can do different things and also turn out nice photos. Thankfully, Samsung Galaxy has come up with an affordable series aimed at the young market — students and first-jobbers alike. Here is our Samsung Galaxy A03 review after several days of usage by our working student.
Online Schooling Might Stay for Some Time
Vaccination efforts of the government and the private sector have led to the drop in COVID-19 cases around the Philippines. In the new normal, we are now allowed more freedom to go around as alert levels have been loosened.
However, the pandemic is still here and we are not out of the woods yet. We would still benefit from wearing face masks when going out and talking to other people. This means that while face-to-face classes may be allowed soon, not everybody will allow their children to go back to school. Some say that they are willing to wait it out for another year until it is much safer.
If your college student needs a new phone for online schooling, then this is something that could easily fit into your budget. The same is true if you just got a job and would need a new phone for work. It’s affordable and won’t set you back a lot in case you need to take out a loan or to get it on installment.
Samsung Galaxy A03 Review by a College Student
We let Dessily test a brand new unit for her online schooling and gaming. She is a working student based here in Bacolod City taking BS Entrepreneurship. Already on her second year, she has modules to complete, performance tasks to accomplish, and virtual classes to attend. After several days, here is her Samsung Galaxy A03 Review.
For Online Schooling
There are times that Dessily has to listen to the teacher’s discussion online. She prefers the 6.5-inch screen because of the wider view. With the A03’s Octa-Core 1.6GHz (Unisoc T606) processor, processes are fast, from downloading files to using social media.
Large Memory Space
As a college student, Dessily’s performance tasks includes photos as well as videos, such as for their PE where they have to submit proof of their physical activity. She can take and retake for several times becase the phone’s 64GB memory can contain so many files. Doesn’t lag, too, despite the many apps installed.
For Mobile Photography
The Samsung Galaxy A03 is considered is the perfect camera phone for less.
Dessily is like many other young people who likes to takes selfies or have her portraits taken, especially during downtimes at work. She enjoys the 5MP (F2.2) front camera as well as the filters that create different effects to match her moods.
The Rear 48MP (F1.8) + 2MP (F2.4, Depth) also takes for clear, bright photos, especially under natural light. See some samples below of sample photos taken in the garden.
For Online Gaming
Dessily, her sister Desly, and cousin JC are hooked with playing Mobile Legends. They battle with other players at night, when work is done.
Both Dessily and Desly say that the Galaxy A03 picks up wifii signal fast, so even if the connection is not very stable (as always), the game continues. Moreover, they haven’t experienced lagging from this unit.
Good Quality Speaker
As a working student, Dessily balances work tasks and studies. However, there are times when they overlap.
For example, a teacher schedules a discussion during the time that she has to wash dishes. When this happens, she can’t wear her ear phones and still get to move freely. So she would put the phone on a stand and listen while the teacher is talking.
According to her, the Galaxy A03 has a very good speaker that can produce loud yet quality sounds. She can hear her teacher clearly even if the phone is about 2 meters away from her. That is what a Dolby Atmos speaker can do.
Dessily is online all day, not just for her classes but also because of work and well, social media. She also plays online games. The 5000mAh battery can last her all day and she only gets to charge the unit at night.
The Samsung Galaxy A03 is thin and light. Dessily got to try the blue unit, which is so attractive and elegant. The satiny texture of the case is also very chic. Despite the wide screen, it is light, handles even for those with small hands, and fits nicely in a small purse that young people like to use nowadays.
