Samsung Galaxy A02 Highlights and Overview

Samsung’s Galaxy A02 is the smaller version of the A02s announced back in 2020 December. Although the model comes with the same display, it offers a quad-core in place of the octa-core ship used in the A02s. The display is a 6.5-inch screen with 720 x 1600 pixels resolution with a dewdrop notch housing the selfie snapper upfront.

In the heart of the phone, there is a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 CPU clocked at 1.5GHz, along with PowerVR GE8100 GPU, 2/3 GB of RAM, and 32/64 GB built-in internal storage, which is further expandable using an SD-card.

In the camera department, you are getting dual sensors at the back comprising of a 13-megapixel main lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, along with an LED flash, while a single 5-megapixel selfie sensor is kept upfront.

The device misses out on a physical fingerprint scanner but supports FaceID and other Android locks. You are also getting either single or dual SIM cards with a 4G network on both cards. The phone gets its power from a 5000mAh battery with a 7.75W charger, while Google Android 10 runs out of the box. The table below contains the full specifications and features of the Samsung Galaxy A02.

    No able to screen shot on my A02 phone. Tried the power + volume down and palm swipe. Yet nothing. Help me out

    • Try it again, just hope you are not doing it wrongly. NOTE: it is Volume down + power button, not power button + volume down. The order at which you press the keys matters. Alternatively, you download screen snapping app from play store.

    I have been using Samsung phones all my life. The Galaxy A02 is the most useless samsung phone I have used ever. Uncomfortable with it in so many ways. Now i have to leave this beautiful model just because it was made to upset. Missing alot of features.
