nextren.com – It is quite difficult to imagine how to get a cellphone with capable performance and sufficient features in the 1 million price class.
But in recent years, the price of 1 million HP has become increasingly attractive with various brands.
One of them is Samsung, which is quite consistent in playing in this class and has just released its latest generation, the Galaxy A03 core.
The Samsung Galaxy A03 Core comes to Indonesia to enliven the entry-level smartphone market at a price of Rp. 1,199,000.
This cellphone feels very basic as is usually felt in a number of entry-level smartphones with simple features and very adequate performance.
But for its class, the Samsung Gakaxy A03 Core brings some pretty fun specifications.
For example, a 5000mAh battery, a 6.5-inch screen, and the Android OS GO wrapped in Samsung’s One UI style which has a modern and minimalist look.
Then what are the other interesting rights of a smartphone for 1 million like this Samsung Galaxy A03 core?
The packaging box of the Samsung Galaxy A03 Core is quite identical to a number of other entry-level Samsung products with a simple design.
There is a picture of the device on the front, the words Samsung and Galaxy A03 Core, as well as a number of specifications at the bottom of the box.
Inside you will find 1 unit of Samsung Galaxy A03 Core, warranty paper, 7.5W charger, USB A to micro usb cable, and sim card ejector.

For the record, in the purchase box there is no casing which is also commonly found on a number of smartphone devices at affordable prices.
The screen also doesn’t have the scratch-resistant coating that’s commonly found in some new-out-of-the-box devices.
So after buying this device, it is highly recommended to immediately buy a protective and scratch-resistant casing so that the smartphone device can be protected when an unwanted incident occurs.
The Samsung Galaxy A03 Core has plastic materials for both the back panel and side frame.
However, Samsung provides a textured texture for the back panel and a different texture near the camera which makes the smartphone look a little better than just plain glossy.

On the right side there are power and volume buttons, a 3 slot tray on the left, as well as a trio of jack holes, micro USB, and speakers at the bottom.

Meanwhile, on the front, the Samsung Galaxy A03 Core uses a 6.5-inch screen decorated with a waterdrop notch as is commonly found on smartphones in its class.
What about the other specifications of the Samsung Galaxy A03 Core?
Front screen & camera
The Samsung Galaxy A03 Core uses a 6.5-inch HD+ TFT panel which is quite good at displaying colors, especially for watching movies.
This screen panel does not have various features according to where this smartphone class is located.

Even at the top of the Samsung Galaxy A03 Core, it still uses a waterdrop-shaped bang design to accommodate a 5MP camera.
The photos from this camera are not special, but just enough to take photos such as for documentation or just selfie fad.

Unfortunately, this front camera cannot be used as a biometric security system, because the security system of the Galaxy A03 core only relies on a pattern, pin or password.
The Samsung Galaxy A03 Core only uses a 1-camera setup with an 8MP resolution which is actually not that big but it’s common for us to find 1 million smartphones.
This 1 camera setup is actually a significant update from its predecessor Galaxy A02 Core which only uses a 5MP camera.

Although only 1, the Galaxy A03 Core camera is sufficient to meet the needs of users who want to take pictures for documentation purposes.

According to its class, the Samsung Galaxy A03 Core camera offers not so many features, one of which is a panoramic mode for taking wide-angle photos.
Then the video recording can also be done at a maximum resolution of FHD 30 FPS.
Runway, Battery & OS
The Samsung Galaxy A03 Core is equipped with a chipset from Unisoc SC9863A with 28nm fabrication and is supported by 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
This figure does seem small for the standard of a 2021 smartphone which usually has at least 3GB of RAM.
But the good news is that the Galaxy A03 Core uses the Android 11 Go operating system which is much lighter than the standard Android 11 with a software size that is not large and not too heavy to run even though it only has 2GB of RAM.

During use, the smartphone feels smooth enough to run in normal daily scenarios such as social media, listening to songs, and watching YouTube.
But it should be noted, smartphones sometimes take longer when opening an application that we usually open on a standard Android smartphone.
However, this is indeed a compromise that must be accepted when using a smartphone with only 2GB of RAM, although it can be tricked by using the lite version of applications such as Facebook Lite, Spotify Lite, and TikTok Lite.
The Samsung Galaxy A03 Core also uses a fairly large 5000mAh battery even though it only supports 7.5 watts of charging.
The Samsung Galaxy A03 Core has specifications that are typical of the 1 million HP class starting from the hardware and design.
Compared to the previous generation, the Galaxy A03 Core gets better improvements such as a bigger screen and camera.

Although some of the numbers sound small, this smartphone runs the lightest version of Android which makes the smartphone run with minimal load.
So that 2GB of RAM can run a number of applications quite easily and smoothly, although it still has to be tried with other applications in the next few days.
If interested, Samsung Galaxy A03 Core was offered at a price of Rp. 1,199,000 when it was released.
