Samsung Galaxy A22 5G: Pros & Cons

7.2
out of 10
MSP SCORE
  • Good Stuff
  • 90Hz Super AMOLED display
  • 5G-centric hardware
  • 6GB RAM on board
  • Expandable storage slot
  • Android 11 out of the box
  • Long battery life
  • Bad Stuff
  • Bulky and notch design
  • Average cameras
  • Only 15W fast charging support
Verdict
Samsung Galaxy A22 5G is an improvement on its 4G variant but still falls short of matching up with its rivals, because it is priced higher than Poco M3 Pro 5G and the Realme 8 5G in the market. You get a 90Hz Super AMOLED display which is a big plus, the 5G-centric Dimensity 700 chipset is reliable for daily use, and you get 6GB RAM with this variant. The battery life will keep you happy. However, the design is dated, cameras are average and only 15W fast charging is not ideal. Unless you do not trust the Chinese brands in the market, get this one. But we suggest you save money and get either Poco M3 Pro 5G or even the 4G-centric Redmi Note 10 phone.
