Samsung released the Samsung A6 in May, 2018, which is a budget-friendly alternative to their more expensive models. The Samsung A6 has some impressive features, including a large screen, powerful processor, and great camera. It is available in Sri Lanka currently for a price of around Rs. 25,000.
*The phone has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase. The price mentioned is for second hand phones.
The phone has a sleek metal design that looks very elegant. The back of the phone is curved which makes it feel comfortable in your hand. It also has a fingerprint sensor which is located on the back just below the camera. The phone is available in four colors: black, gold, blue, and lavender.
The Samsung A6 features a 5.6" display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. It has a resolution of 720 x 1480 pixels for a total of 294 pixels per inch. The screen has rounded edges and is made from Gorilla Glass with an oleophobic coating to protect it from scratches and smudges.
The Samsung A-series phones were known for their long battery life. This model has a 3000mAh battery that can last up to 15 hours of talk time or 48 hours of music playback on a single charge. The phone also supports fast charging so it can be charged quickly in just two hours.
The Samsung A6 comes with the Exynos 7870 processor. It also has Mali-T830 MP graphics and 64GB of internal storage. You can expand the storage by up to 256GB with a microSD card. The phone runs Android Oreo.
The A6 features a 16MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, panorama, and HDR features. It also has a front-facing camera with a resolution of 16MP with LED flash. The cameras are able to record videos in 1080p resolution.
The Samsung A6 gaming mode allows users to enjoy their favorite games without any distractions. The phone has a feature called Game Tools that is designed specifically for gaming. They can be accessed by pressing the power button twice or swiping up from the bottom edge of the screen while in gaming mode. The phone will be able to handle most mid range games but will struggle with the more graphic intensive ones.
All in all, the Samsung A-series phones were very popular in Sri Lanka for their great value. They offered good performance at a budget price and came with all of the features you would expect from a mid range smartphone. However, the series has been discontinued and there are newer Samsung phones that offer better features at a similar price.
