When looking at the Samsung range of Android devices, and affordability is in mind, the South Korean brand has number of devices that provide some serious bang for your buck.

Because while the Galaxy S line gets most of the fanfare, Samsung has been catering to the low-to-mid range market since entering the smartphone market.

Initially, the Samsung Galaxy J series was the base-level range of devices, which provided everything from sub-R2,000 devices to fairly well-spec’d entries. However, the J series, which was extremely popular in the Middle East and Africa, is no more, and Samsung has instead introduced the A series in recent years.

The Galaxy A Series features most of the features and unique designs that you’d find on the flagship Galaxy S designs, although some concessions are made, particularly with the camera sensors and build materials. For example, most flagship devices will be made of glass, whereas the A series features predominantly plastic casing.

How the Galaxy A series naming conventions and tiers work is the following: the first number following the ‘A’ in the device’s name is the ‘tier’ of the device, and the following number is the generation. For example, the Galaxy A23 is the second tier Galaxy A model, and the third generation of the release.

Currently, the 2023 range of A Series includes the following:

  • Galaxy A14 5G
  • Galaxy A23 5G
  • Galaxy A54 5G (replacing the top-of-the-line A53 5G)

Samsung Galaxy A03 Core is a great option

However, there are still some previous models available. And if you’re looking for the cheapest (but still a supported generation), the Samsung Galaxy A03 Core is a great option.

It features a 6.5-inch HD+ TFT (720×1600) display, 2GBs of RAM, 32GBs of storage, a 5,000mAh battery, a 8MP rear camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera. The average retail price of the A03 Core will vary between R1,600 to R1,800.
