Samsung Galaxy A22 use the MediaTek Helio G80 octa-core 12nm, the performance of this smartphone will be more awake, considering the lower screen resolution. The RAM capacity is 6GB, with one choice of internal storage, which is 128GB. But don't worry because the triple SIM slot mechanism supports capabilities up to 1TB.

Of course, the Samsung Galaxy A22 is not a mobile phone focused on gaming, but if you are a gamer, there is nothing wrong with using the Galaxy A22 because its performance is quite proper in its price class.

CHIC AND MINIMALIST COLOR CHOICES


 
Like the Galaxy A32, A52, and A72, this time Samsung also took the same approach in terms of design. From the colours that look chic and youthful, the Galaxy A22 has the boldest and most distinctive colour design compared to other phones that tend to have flashy colours or gradient shades.


The Samsung Galaxy A22 is presented with three colour variants for Malaysia's version, namely Black, Mint (green), and Violet. The back is made of polycarbonate plastic material, as is the frame. Body dimensions are stuck at 159.3 x 73.6 x 8.4 mm, which is not so thick but also not the thinnest. However, with a weight of 186 grams, the Samsung Galaxy A22 is quite comfortable to hold and operate every day.



SUPER AMOLED DISPLAY + 90 HZ REFRESH RATE
One of the features of the Samsung Galaxy A22 is the use of a Super AMOLED display panel. Thanks to a true black display, this panel offers a wider contrast ratio than IPS LCD and better power efficiency.

Located at 6.4 inches in HD + resolution, the Samsung Galaxy A22 also has a brightness offer of up to 600 nits when viewing HDR content. Furthermore, with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, which is 50% higher than normal, users can experience smoother animation movements every time the screen content moves.

COMPLETE CAMERA WITH OIS STABILIZATION
What's special about the Galaxy A22 camera is the OIS hardware stabilization on the main sensor. The resolution is 48MP with an f/1.8 aperture, while the ultra-wide sensor has an 8MP resolution accompanied by two 2MP sensors for macro and depth. Yes, the number of cameras is more than the 5G variant. In addition, there is a 13MP f/2.2 sensor on the front, and both sides of the camera can record videos at up to 1080p 30fps.



The presence of OIS on the main sensor allows smartphone cameras to capture images with a longer shutter so that more light is captured, making photos brighter and more detailed. Plus, the video is more stable, especially in night conditions. Unfortunately, there is no support for 4K video recording on this cellphone. You can only get doing 1080p recording at a frame rate of 30 FPS. However, the presence of OIS is quite helpful in producing beautiful video recordings.

You will avoid the jello effect, and the resulting video will not be too shaky, even if the recording is done while the recorder is moving. As for the front screen, there is a selfie lens with a 13 MP f/2.2 resolution with a 1/3.1-inch sensor size with a pixel size of 1.12µm. Just like the rear camera, this front camera also only supports video recording up to 1080p at 30 FPS.

JUMBO 5,000 MAH BATTERY
Of course, the battery is one of the considerations when choosing the Samsung Galaxy A22. The Samsung device was released with a capacity of 5,000 mAh in the non-removable Li-Polymer type.

This is the capacity that is most often chosen on mobile phones for Rp. 3 million. What makes it special, the Galaxy A22 uses a durable Super AMOLED panel so that this large capacity can make the phone last longer.



A test video uploaded online reveals how long the Samsung Galaxy A22 can last compared to some other Samsung phones. For example, when used to play videos for 2 hours 30 minutes, the Galaxy A22 leaves a fairly large battery of 85%. Other phones such as the Galaxy A52 leave 70%, while the Galaxy A12 and A32 leave 81%.

The Galaxy A22 and other Samsung phones were tested by recording 1080p video for 1 hour in the next activity. As a result, the Galaxy A22 is still the best because it presents the largest remaining battery, 71%.

Furthermore, they were also tested on the activity of streaming songs on Spotify for 1 hour, where this only reduced the battery of the Samsung Galaxy A22 by up to 62%. Then, continue playing Asphalt 8 on High settings for 1 hour 30 minutes, leaving the Samsung Galaxy A22 battery at 50%.

On this remaining battery, the tester tested the duration of the YouTube streaming until it ran out.

Its durability when using various applications is extraordinary and is one of the phones with the strongest battery life. We at ZulYusmar.com were impressed by the good battery life, even compared to several other Galaxy A series.



The presence of OIS as hardware also improves the photography experience so that amateur photo enthusiasts can still take videos or pictures with good quality Then what makes it very superior is the Super AMOLED display panel equipped with a 90 Hz refresh rate.
