Display, Hardware and Design
The new Galaxy M30s comes with a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Infinity U display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels at about 402.6 PPI, aspect ratio of 19.5:9, same as the M30. The display looks bright, thanks to 420 nits brightness, offers good color reproduction and the sunlight legibility is good as well, thanks to AMOLED panel, it offers true blacks. The phone doesn’t have Corning Gorilla Glass protection, and the company doesn’t say if the phone comes with any kind of hardened glass for protection against scratches.
Similar to the other Samsung phones, there is Blue light filter that is said to reduce eye strain by limiting the amount of blue light emitted by the screen, You can set it for sunrise to sunset and also set a custom schedule. You can change font size and style and select apps that you want to use in the full screen aspect ratio. There is also dark mode, which can be enabled by turning on night mode, which looks great on the AMOLED screen. The phone doesn’t have DC dimming or low brightness anti-flicker mode that is present in Vivo Z1x and realme XT. I didn’t notice any screen flicker issues in low brightness on the M30s.
It doesn’t have notification LED, but there is Always on display with tap to show option that shows the AOD screen for 10 seconds after you tap the screen. You can also set a schedule. There are lot of options to choose from such as clocks, GIF or you can download any AOD from Themes section. You can also different set of colors.
On the top, there is an 16-megapixel camera in the notch and the earpiece is present on the top edge. There is also a tiny space in the top left corner for the proximity sensor, but there is no ambient light sensor.
Automatic brightness adjustment takes a bit of time to adjust to the surrounding environment since the phone uses the front camera for adjustment due to the lack of ambient light sensor. However, it has gyroscope and magnetic sensor, otherwise known as magnetometer for VR, but it doesn’t have a notification LED. There is a small chin below the screen, similar to most phones with a notch.
