Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus Review: Overpriced, but display and battery life rock!

 

Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus is an overpriced phone which offers an amazing display and little else.

Amazing camera for daylight images, good battery life, and amazing OLED display.

Simple design, camera at night, performance

The Samsung A6 Plus is a good, sturdy, and a reliable phone if you want to buy a phone which remains faithful to you. The display is soothing and not harsh, thanks to the OLED display. It has everything you would want in your phone to solve your basic...

Samsung Galaxy A6+ (2018) Review

 

The new Samsung Galaxy A6+ is a phone that will not break the bank, yet it features a thin and elegant, yet sturdy metal body, it's got a dual camera with Live Focus portrait mode…

Super AMOLED screen looks great; has lush, vibrant colors ; Sturdy yet elegant metal design ; Samsung Experience interface has many features, modern visuals ; Takes very good looking photos ; Great at the selfie game

Feels a bit slow ; Overpriced ; No 4K video option ; Uses outdated microUSB port ; No wireless charging ; Only partial waterproofing

Samsung Galaxy A6+ review: middle class pretender | AndroidPIT

 

There's a new entry in the Samsung Galaxy A-Class this year. A pinch of Galaxy J-class with a shot of Galaxy S8 or even S9 and the Galaxy A6+ is then ready. To find out where the Galaxy A6+ fits in exactly, check out our review of this 2018 mid-range...

The Samsung Galaxy A6+ is a decent all-rounder, but for the asking price of $300 (and that’s without warranty), I find it difficult to recommend over the competition. It’s an awkward mix of upper- and lower-end features at an equally awkward price...

Samsung Galaxy A6+

 

The Samsung A6+ a big phone for a decent price, at least on contract with some of the cellular service providers. Here are few things to note about this midrange contender.

Great screen, decent cameras, nice body

Processor a bit tardy

Samsung Galaxy A6+ review

 

Mimic the elder brother and everyone will love you

Good battery life ; Better camera than competition ; Samsung screens are the best? ; Samsung’s OS skin is well optimised

Needs a better processor ; Where’s my USB Type-C?

A good smartphone with minor flaws that hold it from taking the top spot in our smartphone sub-₹30K list.

Test du Samsung Galaxy A6+ : un smartphone ultra endurant à moins de 400 euros

 

Avec ses Galaxy A6, Samsung propose de nouveaux smartphones milieu de gamme. Nous avons testé le Galaxy A6+, le modèle qui offre la plus large diagonale et qui est aussi le mieux équipé.

Un très bel écran AMOLED ; Une excellente autonomie ; La qualité de l'appareil photo

Le manque de modernité du design ; Le prix, un peu plus élevé que la concurrence ; Pas d'USB-C

Pas très original esthétiquement, le Galaxy A6+ offre, pour un appareil milieu de gamme, une belle prestation. Superbe écran AMOLED, excellente autonomie, belles photos de jour, performances satisfaisantes… L’offre de Samsung est ici riche et bien...

Samsung Galaxy A6+: Der große Bruder im Test

 

Die Galaxy-A-Klasse verspricht solide Technik und modernes Design zu moderaten Preisen. Bleibt das Galaxy A6+ dieser Tradition treu?

Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus im Test

 

Die neue Mittelklasse von Samsung ist da und in diesem Jahr heißt sie Galaxy A6 Plus. Auf den ersten Blick ist es ein Galaxy S9 im Metallgehäuse, ein zweiter Blick offenbart dann aber doch recht schnell Unterschiede – aber sind die so gravierend, wie...

Saubere Verarbeitung, schickes Design ; Gutes Display ; Ordentliche Kamera ; Tolle Akkulaufzeit

Rückseite zieht Fingerabdrücke an ; Mikro-USB statt Typ C

Das Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus überzeugt im Test mit gutem Gesamtpaket, bietet aber eine echten Highlights. Reicht das?

Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018) und A6+ (2018) im Test

 

Samsungs Modelle der A-Reihe gelten in der Smartphone-Mittelklasse als Gradmesser. Können Galaxy A6 und A6+ im Test daran anknüpfen?

top verarbeitetes Metallgehäuse ; kontrastreiches OLED-Display im Format 18,5:9 ; Dual-SIM und Micro-SD-Speicher ; guter Laborauftritt ; Full-HD+-Auflösung (Galaxy A6+) ; solide Haupt- und Frontkamera (Galaxy A6+) ; überdurchschnittliche Selfie-Kamera...

nicht staub- und wasserdicht ; kein WLAN-ac ; nur Micro-USB ; kein Schnellladen ; relativ schwer (Galaxy A6+) ; Displayauflösung (Galaxy A6)

connect Testurteil: gut (Galaxy A6+: 401 von 500 Punkten; Galaxy A6: 390 von 500 Punkten)
