Body and Design
Samsung ranks among the very best when it comes to smartphone designs and all the line-up of A series confirm this. The front of the Galaxy A60 looks chic and simple and yet very unique. The front comes without notch and has just a camera on the top left.
The back side has also been designed with creativity as the well placed triple camera set sit at the top left corner and is followed by LED flashlight in a vertical line.

Samsung Galaxy A60: Things May Not Like About The Smartphone
Battery Capacity Should Be Better: Okay. Whatever Samsung was thinking, they got this totally wrong. While the fast charging feature is one positive side to look at, the smartphone’s 3500 mAh is just not encouraging. For a smartphone of such spec, you’d expect better battery capacity.
No Gorilla Glass Protection: Most users of the latest breed of Samsung phones have gotten used to the Gorilla screen the phones boast. Given the fragility of most Samsung smartphone’s screen, the Gorilla glass has become very important. The fact that the Galaxy A6 does not feature one is heart-breaking. This means users have to be extra careful and getting a screen guard is not just an option, it is a necessity.
The Samsung Galaxy A60 is a great smartphone as it boasts lovely specs and user-friendly features. It goes for a decent price and rates as one of the very best in the mid-range category today.
