Samsung Galaxy A02 offers a dual 13MP + 2M rear camera. With the 13MP Main Camera, you can catch unforgettable moments in crystal clear detail. Depth Camera allows you to customize the focus, while Macro Camera allows you to get closer to the data. With the 2MP Macro Camera, you can get up close and personal with information you would have missed otherwise. It gives your photos a natural Bokeh effect, making your subject stand out against the background.
The depth Camera brings the lens to the front. You can change the depth of field in your images with the 2MP Depth Sensor. You can easily fine-tune the background blur behind your subject with a single touch for high-quality portrait shots that stand out. Selfies worth sharing from the front camera. It's simple to take beautiful selfies with the Galaxy A02's 5MP front camera and Live Focus, which show more of you and less of the context.
One thing I value much about is the big 5000 mAh battery it offers allows you to keep up with the pace of the day with a battery that won't hold you back. The 5,000mAh (typical) battery allows you to continue doing what you're doing for hours without interruption.
