Samsung Galaxy A22 5G Review

By Gerard Christiaans

Widely known for providing premium specs at a midrange price point, the Samsung Galaxy A series is an especially popular choice amongst Android users. Brand new for summer 2021, Samsung has added another brilliant handset to the lineup – the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G. With a 6.6-inch FHD+ display, triple-lens camera setup and 5G connectivity, there’s a lot to love about this device.

Samsung Galaxy A22 5G Design & Display
Both stylish and comfortable in the hand, the design of the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G includes a sleek plastic body, coated in a light cobblestone texture for added grip. The durable glass front blends seamlessly into smoothed corners, and there’s a side-mounted fingerprint scanner to provide quick and convenient access, without the need for a conventional passcode.

Perfect for editing images and watching your favourite shows, this device has a 6.6-inch, FHD+ Infinity-V display, with a spectrum of over 16 million colours, so it’s guaranteed to provide an immersive viewing experience. It has a 90Hz refresh rate – which makes for smooth transitions when you’re streaming, but comes in especially handy when you’re playing advanced, graphics-intensive games.

Samsung Galaxy A22 5G Camera System
The triple-lens camera includes one 48MP wide camera, a 5MP ultra wide camera (complete with 115-degree field of view), and a third 2MP depth lens, to add greater dimension to your images and help them come to life.

With this trio of camera tech, every user can get high-definition photographs in seconds, from expertly composed group shots to sweeping panoramas of the countryside, or stunning closeups. Portraits are a breeze too, as the depth lens keeps your subject in sharp focus, and gives you the option to finetune the background for an artistic blurred effect.

Keen photographers will be pleased to know that there are plenty of exciting features to experiment with. All the staples you’d expect are present, including Samsung’s Night Mode, which can capture beautiful stills in low light, but there’s also Single Take – an intelligent setting that takes a variety of stills and short video clips with one tap. This is designed to give you more control over the final shot, as you can scroll through the range of frames to find the one you’re most happy with.

Samsung Galaxy A22 5G Power
Running on a MediaTek MT6833 processor, along with Samsung’s signature octa-core CPU, you can be sure that this device will handle the most complex combination of tasks with ease. There’s 4GB RAM on board, which is more than enough to keep your handset operating quickly and without a glitch, even with a lot of tabs open, or many different apps running at the same time.

Switch on the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G and you’ll be greeted by One UI 3.1 – the latest operating system from Samsung, based on Android 11. One UI 3.1 has several innovative features of its own to explore – like Eye Comfort Shield mode, that automatically adjusts blue light, or the new Object Eraser tool, enabling you to get rid of unexpected photobombers in your images.

As its name suggests, the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G is also 5G-ready, so when you’re using your handset within a supported area, you’ll enjoy lag-free gaming, crystal clear video calls, instant downloads, and all the other benefits of the UK’s fifth-generation mobile network.

Samsung Galaxy A22 5G Battery
Whether you’re making the most of this device’s camera or using Google Maps to get around all day – you won’t need to worry about hitting 0%. The Samsung Galaxy A22 5G comes equipped with a 5,000 mAh battery, that’s more than capable of keeping your handset going all day long, from the podcast on your morning commute, right through to your Uber home from after-work drinks.

Plus, when you do need to plug-in and power up, it won’t take long, thanks to 15W Samsung Adaptive Fast Charge, made possible by the USB-C cable included in the box with your new phone. This feature enables your device to charge at over twice the standard rate, so you can wave goodbye to overnight charging.
