The Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus is a mixed bag of hits and misses. It has good battery life, bright and vivid display, premium build quality and satisfactory dual cameras on the back. However, the phone is not meant to run power intensive applications or games.

The Samsung Galaxy A6+ has a stellar display with deep blacks, punchy colours, and great viewing angles. The battery life is good and so is the build quality. Unlike many smartphones in this price range, the A6+ can be bought from e-commerce sites as well as at offline retail stores.

First impressions of the phone won't take you so long to judge it. It is solid from the very moment you grip it, but on paper, things aren't so hunky dory.

The Samsung Galaxy A6+ is a knight in shining armour with one glaring flaw. It has an underwhelming processor. And even though it's built rock solid, has one of the best in-class screen, and has fabulous battery life, and not to mention pretty capable set of cameras, that under-powered processor results in a phone that has it all and yet nothing at all.
