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 Samsung A6 Plus is a good, sturdy, and a reliable phone if you want to buy a phone which remains faithful to you. The display is soothing and not harsh, thanks to the OLED display. It has everything you would want in your phone to solve your basic needs.

There’s a fair bit of difficulty in recommending the device, and while it has an impressive build quality, display, and even battery going for it, the innards need more firepower to take on what the competition offers. In addition, the camera could also do with some further optimization.

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.
