MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

Samsung A02 is a decent entry-level smartphone. Be aware hat it lacks a fingerprint scanner, something that you will find from competing smartphones by TECNO and itel.

For a little more, you can get the more capable/powerful Vivo Y1s. The latter has a smaller battery, but the performance improvement it offers is likely worth giving a thought.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is a recommendation that we make based on our evaluation the specs of the device. It is a general guide designed to help you understand how much value a smartphone offers for its price. It is not a stamp of quality assessment or an endorsement of the device or of the manufacturers.
