  • 5,000 mAh battery

Samsung Galaxy A22 Design

Samsung launched the Galaxy A22 in two models of 4G and 5G. In India, we have the Samsung Galaxy A22 4G model, which flaunts a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display. The display on the Samsung smartphone supports HD+ 720 x 1600 pixels resolution with a 90Hz refresh rate. As far as the design goes, the Samsung Galaxy A22 flaunts a typical Samsung design with an Infinity cutout for the selfie camera. The device is available in black and mint color options.

 

Samsung Galaxy A22 Hardware Performance

The Samsung Galaxy A22 draws power from the MediaTek Helio G80 chipset paired with 6GB RAM and 128Gb default storage. Users can expand the memory up to 1TB via a microSD card under the hood. The Helio G80 chipset could be seen as an entry-level processor, found mainly on budget smartphones. Yet, the device can handle most of the smartphone tasks given to it.

 

Samsung Galaxy A22 Camera Performance

The camera department on the Samsung Galaxy A22 includes four cameras at the rear with a 48MP primary shooter. The other sensors include an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a pair of 2MP sensors. For selfies, there is a 13MP front-facing camera. The cameras on the Samsung Galaxy A22 are one of the prime highlights, which can take some really good pictures and videos, especially in good lighting.

 

Samsung Galaxy A22 Price-To-Specs Ratio

The Samsung Galaxy A22 is available in a single model of 6GB RAM and 128GB storage for Rs. 18,499. There are a couple of bank and sale offers that one can check out. However, for the asking price, the features and specs score of the Samsung Galaxy A22 is quite disappointing. For one, there is no 5G support and the processor is quite basic for the asking price.

 

Samsung Galaxy A22 Important Features/Highlights

Yet, the Samsung Galaxy A22 packs several handy features. It includes a huge 5,000 mAh battery but skips fast charging support. Instead, users get a 15W basic charging feature. The smartphone also runs Android 11 OS with One UI 3.1 Core on top. It comes with the usual connectivity options like 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack for connectivity and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security.

 

Samsung Galaxy A22 Verdict

Samsung Galaxy A22 has made an impressive entry in the market, at least the 5G model. The same can’t be said for the 4G model. While the 90Hz sAMOLED display and the 48MP quad cameras are plus points, the lack of 5G support and fast charging are its drawbacks. For the asking price, the Indian market surely has several other options that one can check out, even with 5G support.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
