The starting price of the Samsung Galaxy A6 was absurd. Fortunately, the market quickly verified it and now this model can be bought a few cheaply and in official distribution. The problem, however, is one – the sense of buying Galaxy A6 is still dubious, even after a price reduction. Check the promotion and see if I'm right.
Smartphones from the Galaxy A series from Samsung have never been especially cheap, but lately the Koreans are obviously exaggerating with their prices. The most absurd example is the main character of this entry, the Samsung Galaxy A6 , which cost as much as PLN 1449 for the start! If someone does not know why I'm surprised by this amount, let's take a look at the specification of the Galaxy A6.
Samsung Galaxy A6 – specification:
- System: Android 8.0 Oreo with the Samsung Experience overlay,
- Display: 5.6 ", HD + (1480 × 720), 18.5: 9, Super AMOLED,
- SoC: Exynos 7870 (up to 1.6 GHz) from Mali-T830,
- RAM: 3 GB,
- Memory: 32 GB,
- Card slot: yes, up to 256GB,
- Camera: 16 MP, f / 1.7,
- Camera: 16 MP, f / 1.9,
- Additional information: Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n (2.4 and 5 GHz), Bluetooth 4.2 with LE, ANT +, microUSB, NFC, GPS with Glonass and BeiDou, fingerprint reader, 3.5mm jack connector, gyroscope , Bixby, Dual SIM,
- Battery: 3000 mAh,
- Dimensions and weight: 149.9 x 70.8 x 7.7 mm, 162 g.
It is hard to call a good decision to spend almost PLN 1,500 on such a smartphone. We will buy many more interesting phones for similar money. The market has noticed this and quickly reduced the Galaxy A6 price. The importers have made the first step , and now they have done it … Orange.
Promotion on Galaxy A6
In the Orange store without a contract the Samsung Galaxy A6 smartphone in black is currently sold for PLN 1159 . This means that the phone can be bought in the official Polish distribution by almost PLN 300 cheaper and it's only a month after starting the sale! Such situations do not happen very often, which I think also proves that the Galaxy A6 price was definitely too high for the start.
Is it worth buying the Galaxy A6 in promotion?
When I look at the possibilities of the Galaxy A6, despite the price reduction, I still think that it is better to avoid this model with a wide arc. Alternatives are not missing even from the Samsung stables. Currently, for about 1100 zlotys , we will get the Galaxy A5 2017, which loses only in design, but is stronger, has a higher resolution screen and is waterproof. If someone does not want Samsung, for similar money he will get Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, Motorola Moto X4 or Nokia 6.1 – each of these models seems to me a more interesting choice.
