Guys can you help me out a little?
What should I get, A30 or A40, I personally prefer the bigger battery on the A30, also I never use NFC...

Offline maps installed in both of them (Google map & maps.me). None of those devices had any active sim card. During slight cloudy sky or inside bus/taxi my A50 often failed to locate my current position, but years old Lenovo K4 note performed perfectly at the same moment. But when i returned my home & put an active sim, the A50 works perfectly!!! I tesed several times & every time found the same result. Without active sim A50's navigation performance is very poor. on the other hand my wife's S7 edge perform same as my Lenovo K4 note without active sim/offline. May be the new A series heavily depends on assisted gps data (from mobile operator) rather than direct gps data. Thats why its offline navigation is so poor.
This is literally the cheapest phone that you can buy which comes with an OLED display & an ultrawide lens

The camera lacks good lvl of details and in order to make pics clear it tends to over sharpen every single thing. The speaker is very low in quality and stretches it too much resulting distorted sound. One UI isnt that optimized, more can be achieved.

The below average speaker may be a CON but not necessarily a deal breaker,not for me at least..

Can anyone let me know if the Slow Motion Update has been rolled out globally? (I'm from Pakistan though)

I bought A30 2 months ago. Was happy until i went on holiday and required Google Maps. What a nightmare. If i'm not riding in the bush i am 300km away from where i actually am. Very dissapointing. If you rely on Google Maps to navigate you then don't buy this phone
Interesting. I do have to agree with Gsmarena here, it feels too similar to other phones, though I'd have to argue that Samsung isn't the only company guilty of this. Still, I think I'd rather see Samsung actually start testing the crazy features that they said they would on this series.

"None of the latest A phones comes with ingress protection, but they are not losing any slots or jacks, so it's a silver lining of a sorts."
A60 doesn't have a headphone jack, A80 doesn't have a headphone or micro SD slot... What are talking about?
