Samsung Galaxy A22 4G smartphone review – AMOLED in a mid-range smartphone without 5G

5G is foolish. If this is what you think sometimes and are looking for a mid-range smartphone without support for the newest mobile communication standard, Samsung has an offer for you: The Galaxy A22 4G is more compact than its 5G version, but also slower at a similar price. So is the 4G smartphone only something for 5G fiends?

Samsung Galaxy A22 4G

Just like you can hardly imagine today that there were once smartphones without LTE, you may not be able to find many smartphones without 5G in a few years. But at this point, Samsung pursues a two-pronged approach, offering several of its mid-range smartphones in one version with 4G and another with 5G. In this way, those who don't need a superfast mobile connection can still save some money, or can they?

Well, if you actually compare the current Internet prices of the Galaxy A22 4G and Galaxy A22 5G, the savings are marginal at most. But at least the Samsung Galaxy A22 4G that we are evaluating in more detail in this test is more compact than its 5G sibling and also brings an AMOLED screen and some improvements in the camera. So is this a real alternative?

Case – Simple plastic in the Galaxy smartphone

Overall, the case looks a little simpler than that of the Galaxy A22 5G, and the reflective back cover that is made from fairly ordinary plastic is available in white, black, and a pale violet color. The case appears fairly robust and the material transitions are clean. The rounded corners help the Galaxy smartphone to feel good when holding it in the hand.

At 6.4 inches, the smartphone is noticeably smaller and lighter than its 5G version, which should benefit those with smaller hands. However, with the realme 8 or Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S, there are also smartphones in this price class that are even lighter.

Equipment – Small differences in price

The Samsung Galaxy A22 LTE is available in two storage versions at the following manufacturer prices:

  • Samsung Galaxy A22 – 4GB RAM / 64 GB storage: 209 Euros (~$246)
  • Samsung Galaxy A22 – 4GB RAM / 128 GB storage: 229 Euros (~$269)

So the price difference is not very large. NFC is available, allowing you to use mobile payment services.

There is also a microSD slot, giving you the option to expand the storage significantly. This is a dedicated slot, so that you can additionally use two SIM cards.

microSD Card Reader

In our test transferring data to the microSD, the Samsung Galaxy A22 4G performs at eye level with its 5G sibling and overall quite fast. However, in the Cross Platform Disk Test (CPDT), the values are rather in the middle of the field of comparison devices.

Software – Updates? Perhaps...

OneUI 3.1, which is based on Android 11, is preinstalled on the Samsung Galaxy A22 4G. Samsung's inhouse software interface is designed so that all the important operational elements are located at the bottom part of the screen, allowing even those with small hands to operate the smartphone as comfortably as possible. This is of course only the case for the operating system but not necessarily for third-party apps. At the time of this test, the security patches are at the level of May 2021 and should be updated as soon as possible.

It is unfortunate that unlike other manufacturers, Samsung is unwilling to specify how long there will be software updates for its smartphones, so we can only hope that the Galaxy A22 4G will be updated for still some time.

While the manufacturer has preinstalled several third-party apps, you can easily uninstall them.

Communication and GNSS – Not much variety for the Samsung smartphone

The standard of the Samsung Galaxy A22 WLAN module is called "WiFi 5." In terms of communication speed, the smartphone performs at the class level. However, it does not offer MIMO such as the Poco X3 from Xiaomi, which is able to almost double its data rates using this. The data transfer speed of our test unit remains relatively stable, but the signal strength quickly drops with increasing distance to the router.

The Samsung Galaxy A22 4G does not offer 5G, and the variety of LTE frequencies offered is also only mediocre. Those who often travel to faraway places should make sure that they will be able to access the mobile Internet with the smartphone at their travel destination. The reception strength of the Galaxy smartphone is okay, but there are definitely some smartphones that get a higher signal quality in the same location.

A short time after we step outside, the smartphone is already able to locate its position with a good accuracy of 2 meters. The GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and Beidou satellite networks are supported and quickly found, and SBAS is also used to improve the accuracy.

In our practical test, a bike tour where we also take the Garmin Edge 520 for comparison, the Samsung smartphone shows itself quite accurate in its location determination. While it is still not completely exact, the locating accuracy is sufficient for everyday navigation.

Samsung has preinstalled its own telephone app, which replaces Google's standard app and whose operation is also similarly intuitive. VoWiFi and VoLTE are supported.

During phone calls, the voice of our conversation partner sounds a bit boomy using the internal earpiece at maximum volume and is accompanied by other noises. So the understandability is at a rather mediocre level, but still okay. We ourselves are also able to speak with a slightly lower voice, but our voice sounds slightly dull to our conversation partner.

When using the speaker phone mode with the built-in speaker, our conversation partner sounds fairly loud and the clarity is also acceptable. However, we should not lower our voice too much, since otherwise the microphone will not be able to record it.

Cameras – With OIS and macro lens

In terms of the cameras, if you compare the equipment specified for the Samsung Galaxy A22 4G and Galaxy A22 5G, at first glance you might think that they have an identical camera system. 

However, if you take a closer look you might see some differences: while the Galaxy A22 4G also brings a 48-Megapixel camera, it offers optical image stabilization, which is not available in the 5G version. In addition, the wide-angle lens has slightly higher resolution and there is a dedicated macro lens, even if it only has a 2-Megapixel resolution.

So overall, the camera system of the 4G version is even more flexible and better protected from blurry results, as long as you use the main camera.

Depending on the situation, the pictures taken with the main camera of the Galaxy A22 4G appear quite different compared to those of the Galaxy A22 5G. In general, they are slightly brighter. If you focus on one object, it is reproduced a bit sharper, but if you take a panorama shot, the results appear more blurry, although pixel artifacts are not as apparent as in the 5G model. Overall, this is also a camera that is typical for the price class and doesn't really stand out, but does a fairly solid job in bad light conditions and in terms of high contrasts.

Thanks to its higher resolution, the wide-angle lens is indeed able to take slightly more detailed pictures. However, this still only makes it more suitable for snapshots that are not enlarged too much, since a lot of details are lost. It is not possible to zoom in several steps automatically switching between lenses, but you have to manually switch between them directly.

Videos can be recorded at a maximum of Full-HD resolution and 30 fps, which is a limitation compared to the 5G model where at least 2K was possible. Instead, the autofocus appears to be more reliable.

Evaluating the recordings under defined light conditions in the lab, the Samsung Galaxy A22 4G is at the class level. At first glance, the sharpness is fairly good, but it slightly decreases toward the edges. The color reproduction and contrast also appear to be decent. Under low light conditions, the pictures of the Galaxy A22 4G are slightly better illuminated than those of the 5G version, but you are still not getting night pictures that are really good.

Accessories and Warranty – A lot of repair options

In addition to the phone, the box of the Galaxy smartphone also includes a USB-C cable and the corresponding charger, as well as a SIM tool and various papers. Samsung currently does not offer any accessories specific to the smartphone in its online shop.

The warranty period is 24 months. Samsung offers many different options to get the smartphone repaired, either on-site or sending it. You can also see the options for standard repairs outside of the warranty online.

Input Devices and Operation – A fast sensor

The touchscreen is accurate and also responsive to inputs in the corners. The display of the Samsung Galaxy A22 is a 90-Hz panel, which allows inputs via touchscreen to be quickly displayed on the screen, leading to a subjectively smoother operation.

The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the standby button on the side. It works quickly and reliably: The moment you touch the sensor, the Galaxy smartphone is already unlocked. Face recognition is also supported, but this method can be more cumbersome at times than unlocking via fingerprint sensor, since you first have to waken the smartphone from standby.

Display – AMOLED but dark

Subpixel grid

Compared to its 5G sibling, the large advantage of the Galaxy A22 4G version could be the AMOLED screen. However, this appears to be a very dark display that hardly gets any brighter than 350 cd/m² and is thus unsuitable for using it outdoors.

In addition, at an expanded 720p, the resolution is significantly lower than the Full-HD resolution of the Galaxy A22 5G and all the other comparison devices. Of course, the difference is not as gravely apparent in a 6.4-inch smartphone as in a TV that is 30 inches or larger. However in a direct comparison, the slightly more muddy image is clearly noticeable.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 127.6 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 127.6 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 127.6 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15315 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

In our tests with the CalMAN software and spectral photometer, we determine that the color reproduction is fairly inaccurate in the "Vivid" preset. According to our experience, things should be better in the "Natural" mode, but the color accuracy is still mediocre at most for an AMOLED display.

The display flickers at the frequencies typical for OLEDs, so sensitive persons should try out the screen at a low brightness first, before buying it.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3 ms rise
↘ 3 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 7 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3 ms rise
↘ 3 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 6 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

Due to the dark display, reflections become a strong hindrance in bright surroundings, so it is better if you retreat into the shade. In terms of the viewing angles, there is a very slight darkening if you look at the display from the top, but overall, the display contents can be read easily from any position.

Performance – Mid-range power in the Galaxy smartphone

The MediaTek Helio G80 is a mid-range SoC, but the comparison devices all use more current and powerful SoCs despite falling into a similar price range.

So is the Samsung Galaxy A22 4G a bit weak? Not really. The performance is sufficient for everyday tasks and many apps, but you just get a bit more power elsewhere for more demanding tasks, running several apps in parallel, or an even smoother system. 

In terms of the graphics performance, the smartphone remains behind as well. Although at first glance, the low-resolution display gives the impression that the ARM Mali-G52 MP2 does a fairly good job, if you look at the test results instead of the screen, it becomes clear that in a fair match up, all the comparison devices are ahead.

* ... smaller is better

You have to be content with the slower eMMC memory in the Galaxy A22 4G. This is not sufficient anymore to keep up with similarly priced devices in terms of the storage speed.

Games – Possible also above 60 fps

When gaming, the Galaxy A22 4G proves that significantly more than 60 fps are quite possible in 2D games even in this price class. "Armajet" runs at an average of 67 fps, which, although much less than in the Galaxy A22 5G, is still more than in many other devices that are just not optimized for high fps numbers. In this regard, the publishers of games are similarly challenged as the smartphone manufacturers.

In "PUBG Mobile," we see the behavior that is usual for this price class: at low detail level, 40 fps are possible at times, but otherwise most games run at 30 fps and there are also some stutters from time to time. We measure the frame rates with GameBench.

In terms of controlling the game, the Galaxy A22 4G strikes a decent figure. The touchscreen responds quickly and reliably, and the position sensor also does its job well.
