What the Critics Are Saying...

The Samsung Galaxy A6+ is a decent all-rounder, but for the asking price of $300 (and that’s without warranty), I find it difficult to recommend over the competition. It’s an awkward mix of upper- and lower-end features at an equally awkward price point.

The Galaxy A6+ misses out on core features that define a mid-range Samsung phone in 2018. There really isn't any reason to consider the device when there are much better alternatives available at the same price point.
