Samsung A02 and A02s battery life 

The Samsung A02 comes with a 5000mAh battery and 7.75W fast charging. The A02s also has a 5000mAh battery but has a 15W fast charging capability- so it can be charged in half the time as the A02. 

In terms of how long the battery lasts is obviously very dependent on the user, but a 5000mAh battery is the same size battery as the more expensive A21 and A21s.


Samsung A02 and A02s camera 

The Samsung Galaxy A02 has a 13MP main camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 5MP front camera which will let you up your selfie game like never before. The A02s has a triple camera consisting of a 13MP main camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth camera (which the A02 does not have) and a 5MP selfie cam. 

Ok, but what do the multiple camera lenses actually do? 

The macro camera is all about the little details, allowing you to take close-up pictures with incredible accuracy and focus while artistically blurring the background to allow your subject to take centre stage. 

The selfie camera is what you need to become a Tik-Tok sensation! Film yourself with greater clarity and turn your videos into envy-worthy social content with the 5MP front camera. 

The depth camera allows you to focus on what matters and blur out the background resulting in insta-worthy snaps you can be proud of. The live-focus feature which can be turned on or off with the simple touch of a button gives you portrait photography you can be proud of. 

Samsung A02s camera

Although the lenses are exactly the same except for the additional depth camera lens, it really is a game-changer if a quality camera is your main reason for upgrading. So if you can part with the extra R500, then we say go for the A02s.
