Review – Samsung Galaxy M11 and Galaxy M01
A member of Samsung’s M series,the phone has an Infinity-O display, sufficient 5000 mAh battery life, microphones at the top and bottom, modern selfie punch-hole camera, support for Dolby Atmos enabling good sound quality and a well built design. Some might find the 16MP selfie camera odd because of its location being right on the front screen of the phone. The tri-camera features are average . The brand has chosen TFT HD over an AMOLED display. Latest features that come with the OneUI 2.0 have proven to be a boon to this model except for the bloatwares that it accompanies. When it comes to hardwares, the phone could have done better in terms of performance considering the turbulent market conditions.
This is a smartphone you should buy if you are looking for one that is incredibly reasonable, handy, compact and the best at its price. It does have decent battery life that is sufficient enough for normal day-to-day activities. It has a small and sturdy structure with Samsung’s UI 2.0 and a brilliant LCD infinite V display. The performance is smooth and has a good battery life but the quality of the dual camera could have been better.
