Acceptable design for fingerprinting with fine but fine plastic materials.
The USB port comes from the newer Type C.
A large random and random memory is enough.
Supports two SIM cards and a memory card at the same time.
Rear camera is very acceptable among the competitors.
Hold up battery
Supports secondary microphone for noise and noise isolation.
Notification bulb is not supported.
The bottom edge of the screen is large and has not been made less.
The phone has a lot of weight due to the large battery, so you will need some time to get used to it.
The performance of the processor is not the strongest currently, as there are strong competitors such as the Xiaomi Redmi 9 and the Infinix Hot 10.
HD + screen and it would have been better if it had at least an FHD + screen or it had a punch hole screen like it was on the Samsung Galaxy A11.
The phone does not support the light sensor, so it will not be able to accurately auto-brighten the screen as it works by the software in addition to not supporting the gyroscope and compass.
We find that Samsung has a Samsung M21 at a near price with much better specifications, so the M21 comes with an FHD + AMOLED screen, a better processor, a better selfie camera, and a bigger battery.
