Samsung has announced the Galaxy A10s which is an upgrade to the Galaxy A10 announced early this year. The new updates make the A10s a pretty compelling purchase that will even rival the A20 which I still consider one of the best budget phones of 2019,
The 2019 A-series from Samsung was a big departure from previous A-series phones in terms of price versus specs. Samsung decided to launch a full attack on budget devices with the A10, A20, and A30 all ranging from KES. 10,000 to KES. 25,000. Which is a highly competitive segment in Kenya.
The Samsung Galaxy A10s mobile features a 6.2″ (15.75 cm) display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels and runs Android 9.0. The device is powered by Octa core (2 GHz, Quad core + 1.5 GHz, Quad core) processor paired with 2 GB of RAM. It has a 4000mAh. There’s now a dual camera setup: 13 MP + 2 MP camera.
Remember the normal Galaxy A10 didn’t have a fingerprint scanner, had a smaller battery, and a single rear camera.
I am estimating a price of KES. 14,000 which would make this a really good phone to buy. Samsung is really out to get the budget market, and I am happy finally. Between this device and the Galaxy A20, the A20 still wins for having an AMOLED Display, and USB type-C.
