Overview

The Samsung Galaxy A6 is a mid-range phone and like all good mid-rangers it packs some flagship features into a cheaper shell.

Highlights therefore include a big 5.6-inch 720 x 1480 screen with a pixel density of 294 pixels per inch, so it’s quite sharp and as this is a Samsung phone it has a Super AMOLED screen, making the contrast better and the colours more vibrant than most screens at this price. It also has a wide 18.5:9 aspect ratio, just like the Samsung Galaxy S9.

Interestingly the design isn’t as inspired by Samsung’s flagships as you might expect, but the Samsung Galaxy A6 still has a premium build, with a metal back, rather than the glass Samsung favours in its priciest phones. That should help make it tough, as well as making it look and feel expensive.

The Samsung Galaxy A6 also stands out with its camera, as not only does it have a 16MP rear one but also a 16MP front-facing one, with its own LED flash, so whether you’re photographing yourself or others you can get quality shots.

And the Samsung Galaxy A6 has both a fingerprint scanner and facial recognition, so you have multiple high-tech ways to keep it secure.

With an octa-core chipset, 3GB of RAM, a microSD card slot and Android Oreo too it’s clear that this is only a couple of steps down from a flagship, despite costing far, far less.
