70% Samsung Galaxy F41 review: A complete package
Source: Gadgets Now English
Samsung Galaxy F41 comes in two models- 6/64GB and 6/128GB at Rs 15,499 and Rs 16,499. Key highlights of the Samsung Galaxy F41 are big sAMOLED screen, a large 6,000mAh battery with decent performance, a neat UI and an appealing design. These are roughly all features that one looks for in a smartphone these days. Having said that the phone will compete with Realme 7, Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Samsung’s own Galaxy M31 and Galaxy M31s to name a few.

Samsung Galaxy F41 Review
Source: Mobygyaan English
The Samsung Galaxy F41 is a great smartphone for the people who are looking to buy a Non-chinese smartphone with a Super AMOLED Display. It comes with the same design that we have seen in a lot of recent midrange Smartphones by Samsung. The 6000 mAh battery easily gets you through the day however charging it up takes a lot of time. In the same way, the processor isn’t that great when compared with the Smartphones that come with the latest Snapdragon 720G or 730G chipset but it gets the job done without any major issues.

70% Samsung Galaxy F62 review: Solid all-rounder
Source: Gadgets Now English
The Samsung Galaxy F62 is an all-rounder of a smartphone. It comes with a big battery, 64MP quad-camera, latest software version and also a 7nm processor. With a starting price range of Rs 23,999, the Samsung Galaxy F62 can be your pick. The smartphone faces some heating issues after heavy gaming, but if you are not much into gaming then you will not have any issues with the smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy F62 Review
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Samsung Galaxy F62 has a fantastic display and battery life. The cameras perform well in good lighting conditions, but in the low lighting, it delivers decent results. The UI has improved drastically over the last few months and provides lag-free performance, but at the same time, ad in a couple of apps might not go well with few customers because, in general, most of the end-users don't have any issues with them.

Samsung Galaxy F62 review: Worthy all-round 4G smartphone in Indian context
Source: Business Standard English
Priced Rs 23,999 onwards, the Samsung Galaxy F62 is a competent midrange smartphone with something in store for everyone. Compensating for the phone’s average looks is its neat build and lightweight form factor. The phone’s display is good for most content types that one consumes on a smartphone but the absence of an enhanced refresh rate and touch sampling rate is noticeable. Though not class-leading, the camera is competent, with tons of value-added features to experiment with and explore. Performance-wise, the Galaxy F62 is a delight to use but the ads in the UI hamper the user experience. Completing the package is an enduring on-battery time, which is among the best you get in the midrange segment.

80% Samsung Galaxy F62 Review: End of the Line for the Galaxy M51?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The launch of the Samsung Galaxy F62 has essentially killed off much of the appeal that the Galaxy M51 has so far had, in my opinion. For about Rs. 2,000 more for either variant, the Galaxy F62 offers a much faster SoC and Android 11, plus exactly the same other features that are offered in the Galaxy M51. While the Galaxy F62 performs well overall, battery life is an area where it really excels. If you want a phone that can easily last for more than a day even with very rigorous usage, you should consider it.

76% Samsung Galaxy F62 Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Samsung Galaxy F62 brings to the mid-range segment a flagship SoC and a kind of battery life that is only been seen in the M-series. We note that the Samsung Galaxy F62 has decent performance, going toe-to-toe with the best in the segment like the OnePlus Nord, with the battery life of almost two days giving it an edge over the existing competition. Where the Samsung Galaxy F62 skims out on segment-standard features is a high refresh rate display and the lack of HDR certification. It also comes with only a mono speaker, so using earphones or headphones while consuming content on the phone is highly recommended.

A WhatsApp message that started with “I need a small help” to a full-fledged conversation on the psychology behind buying smartphones taught me a lot about consumer behaviour. Brands advertise in such a way that you end up paying for a feature that might seem relevant on paper but has no significant contribution in improving user experience otherwise. While using the new Galaxy F62, I realised Samsung had done the exact opposite with this phone — ignored unnecessary features and focused on the idea of simplicity.

The Galaxy F62 had me very excited when it was announced, mainly because it features the Exynos 9825 chipset. I had expected it to offer flagship-grade fluidity in the user interface similar to the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ that it borrows the processor from, but I ended up being disappointed.

Samsung Galaxy F62 First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
There's obviously a lot more camera testing to be done, so don't forget to check back for my full review coming soon. Based on what I've used and seen so far, the Samsung Galaxy F62 seems like a Galaxy M51 with a more powerful SoC. This might be a good thing for those that wanted more performance but didn't want to spend much more. However, does slapping on a flagship SoC excuse Samsung from offering other utilitarian features such as a in-display fingerprint sensor or a 90Hz refresh rate? Let us know what you think of this decision in the comments.

Source: The Times of India English
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy F62 looks like a solid mid-range phone. The mid-range segment isn’t as crowded as the budget or the above ₹30,000 segment, so seems like the odds are in favour of the Galaxy F62 - the company has also included offers of cashback of ₹2,500 on ICICI Bank cards and EMIs. The success, however, will depend on how the phone performs in the longer term. We will be back with more insights on the Galaxy F62 in our detailed review. Until then, stay tuned.

If you are a blind Samsung fan, you will definitely buy the Samsung Galaxy F52 phone. As it offers overall amazing specs within an average budget, you will only miss an AMOLED display panel and the NFC feature. The Galaxy F52 is a decent smartphone that also comes with 5g support. If you are on a limited budget, it is recommended to go with this phone as it offers remarkable performance in the budget range. You can check its brother, the galaxy F62, which comes almost on a similar budget with much more advanced features. It comes from the flagship F-series phones, the F52 looks like the F62 model but with some different features. If you’re not interested in the Samsung brand, the Mi 10i 5G would be the better alternative.

Galaxy F22 Review: The Best Budget Phone From Samsung?
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
Overall, the Galaxy F22 is a phone I would definitely recommend for its price. I think everything is quite balanced with this phone, making it the best budget phone from Samsung right now. Likewise, if you want superior performance, a sharper Full HD display, and maybe a better-looking design, you’ll have to spend a bit more and get the Redmi Note 10S or Realme 8. And given their higher price tag and superior hardware, they are certainly better than the Galaxy F22.

Although the Samsung Galaxy F22 smartphone is unfortunately restricted to the 4G set. The phone has the potential to attract millions of users. Whether it’s the screen, camera, or battery, you’ll value all the features at the low price range. Suitable for general use and even if you want to play light games, the Galaxy F22 phone has the potential to handle it. These soft colors are like your thoughts in real life. The brand adequately justifies the desire of each customer. Moving away from that model, buying an alternative can be a little confusing, but you can definitely check it out to compare with others. If your budget is less than 15k, there is another phone which is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10T phone with 5g support and so many extraordinary features that it can certainly beat the F22 galaxy smartphone.

70% Samsung Galaxy F22 review: lovely screen and long battery
Source: 91mobiles English
Samsung has been making the right kind of noises with its Galaxy F series and there is some merit to the F22. There are some niggles of course. The Helio G80 processor might not be appreciated by power users while the night photography on the device has scope for improvement. However, the phone’s lovely AMOLED display makes the viewing experience quite pleasurable. In daylight, the F22 can take photos that can easily rival some of the best devices from its counterparts in the budget category. The phone comes with a rather large battery too. And these reasons could make the Galaxy F22 a reasonable choice for a smartphone.

880% Samsung Galaxy F22 review: A Big-Battery Budget Smartphone That’s Not for Gamers
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
After using the Samsung Galaxy F22 for a week, I found that it is a decent budget smartphone for those with basic needs, but does have quite a few shortcomings. There's a vibrant 90Hz refresh rate Super AMOLED display that's good for watching videos on, and enhances the usage experience. Then there's the 6,000mAh battery for those seeking no compromise in terms of battery life. But if you take a long hard look at the competition, you'll start to realise that other companies offer much more, not just in terms of specifications, but even convenience. Some people might be alright with these compromises, but the Realme Narzo 30 (Review), offers good battery life, a full HD+ display with HD content streaming support, and faster charging with a 30W charger in the box. Then there's Xiaomi's Redmi Note 10 (Review), which for an additional Rs 500 offers 33W charging, a full HD+ Super AMOLED display, and stereo speakers.

Samsung's One UI 3.1 (based on Android 11) runs the show, and during my initial usage, it appeared to perform smoothly. The 90Hz refresh rate display also makes the software experience appear quite fluid, and I had to keep reminding myself that this is a smartphone with just 4GB of RAM. Several apps and games come preinstalled, including plenty of Samsung-branded ones. There are also some third-party ones such as Moj and MX TakaTak, along with Samsung's usual serving of Microsoft apps including Office, OneDrive, LinkedIn, and Outlook.

Samsung Galaxy F22 Review – Competitive Rivals in the Same Family
Source: Cashify English
Samsung Galaxy F22 shares almost every aspect of its specifications with Galaxy A22 which in turn shares its specs from M32. Since all three have the same chipset, I would say Galaxy F22 is a pretty powerful smartphone based on its price tag which is way lower than A22 let alone the pricier Galaxy M32. It does have an HD+ Super AMOLED display which is a major turn-off in A22. There’s no OIS which isn’t surprising at this price point. Overall, F22 offers the same performance as A22 while punching in a much lower price tag on board while bringing a large battery size.

Samsung Galaxy F23 5G is a decent phone in the mid-range price segment. Thanks to the Snapdragon 750G chipset, you get a decent gaming and camera experience. Topping it is Samsung's software commitment. However, Samsung has compromised on the display front by including a TFT panel. Coupled with the single speaker, it is not a phone from multimedia. Likewise, the removal of the charger from the box makes it even harder sell.

Samsung Galaxy F23 5G is a solid performer at this price point. This phone has a great display, a powerful battery, a decent camera, and a solid overall performance. It’s also 5G-ready, making it a future-proof smartphone in this category. I’d recommend going with the 6GB RAM option, as the 4GB model may not offer a very nice experience. Additionally, it comes pre-installed with Android 12, which isn’t the case with the majority of competing smartphones.

The Samsung Galaxy F23 5G comes with a starting price of Rs. 15,999 for the 4 GB/ 128 GB variant while the 6 GB/ 128 GB model comes for Rs. 16,999. The smartphone comes with an impressive chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G at this price point, Android 12, 5G support, and has very good battery life. That said, the phone does struggle in some departments, it comes with a dated-looking front, lacks an AMOLED display, and the absence of a charger can be a potential deal-breaker at this price point. Standing against it are the likes of the Redmi Note 11S and the Poco M4 Pro, which sport AMOLED displays and have better cameras (as well as chargers in the package), although they lose out on processor and 5G support. Surviving in this competition-laden scape is going to be an uphill task for the Galaxy F23, but its processor power and 5G support might propel it to the top.

Samsung Galaxy F23 5G comes with a starting price of Rs 17,499. At this price, the phone offers an excellent battery life, the latest software with two years of promised subsequent updates and a decent display. Samsung has ditched the charger from the phone’s box which adds to an extra expense for buyers as the cable is a Type-C to Type-C one. The sub-Rs 20,000 phone segment is already one of the most competitive categories with Oppo K10, Vivo T1 and iQoo Z6 being the latest additions. For Samsung Galaxy F23 5G, the competition will be fierce and if battery performance is key for you then it’s worth a dekko.

The Galaxy F23 5G lives up to the expectations in this price range. The display is good, the battery is impressive, the camera and general performance should keep most users happy. It is also 5G ready and should be a future proof phone in this segment. The performance though is not perfect. But what might not make users so happy is the lack of a charger. Not everyone will have their old Samsung 25W charger waiting for this new phone. If one wants to get the official Samsung charger plus cable, that’s another Rs 1,999 going by the price listed on the website. In that case, the phone will cost around Rs 20,000. If you compare it to the Redmi Note 11 Pro or Pro+ or even the Realme 9 series, this does put Samsung’s F23 at a disadvantage.

Source: 91mobiles English
The Samsung Galaxy F23 5G ticks most of the boxes that make it a worthwhile offering in this space. Its design is sturdy, robust and provides a great in-hand feel. Although the display could have been AMOLED, the 120Hz colour accurate LCD panel makes up for it and the daylight camera performance is more than satisfactory. Apart from that, the phone comes with Android 12 out of the box, which is something I cannot say for most of the competing devices. However, the front of the phone looks rather ancient with the waterdrop notch and the low-light photography from the camera is nothing to write home about. If these two drawbacks don’t factor into your decision-making process, the Galaxy F23 is a phone worth consideration.

But the missing charging adaptor from a budget smartphone is something that disappoints me the most. In that case, buying a new Samsung 25W charger will eventually jump the price of the phone. Though, there is a wave of smartphones under Rs. 20,000 price segment which you can choose from. As for gamers, the Vivo T1 is there to be considered, while Redmi Note 11S offers AMOLED display and better charging, but consider only if you do not care much about 5G connectivity. Otherwise, Realme 9 Pro with design quotient and 33W charging can also be a considerable option.

70% Samsung Galaxy F23 5G Review: Choose Wisely
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Samsung Galaxy F23 5G excels when it comes to battery life. The upgraded hardware with plenty of 5G bands and the promise of timely software updates should keep it relevant for a few years. I'd suggest opting for the 6GB RAM variant though, as the 4GB variant did not deliver a very good experience in this review. Compared to the Galaxy F22 5G (Review), the display has somewhat better specs but it isn't bright enough for outdoor use in sunlight. I also found the cameras to be strictly average, and low light performance is still not all that great. The Galaxy F23 5G faces stiff competition in the sub-Rs. 20,000 segment. There are the Vivo T1 (Review) and the recently announced iQoo Z6 to consider. Oppo is also making a lot of noise about its upcoming K10 smartphone, which is expected to be priced under Rs. 20,000. There's even the Redmi Note 11 Pro, if you don't care much for 5G, not to mention some older models such as the Realme 8s 5G (Review) and Narzo 30 Pro 5G (Review), which are still worth considering.

Samsung Galaxy F23 5G review: High-performance gaming on a budget
Source: Sam Mobile English
The Galaxy F23 5G is a hard phone to give a verdict on. It has a nice high refresh rate display, fantastic battery life, excellent gaming performance, the latest Samsung software, and a rear-facing design that’s beautiful. However, the cameras are the very definition of mediocre, the bezels are too big for 2022, and non-gaming performance leaves a lot to be desired. I think the best thing I can say about the F23 5G is that it’s good for high-performance gaming on a budget. If that’s something you’re looking for, by all means, go ahead and get the Galaxy F23 5G. Otherwise, I’d recommend saving up and getting something like the Galaxy A22 5G. The A22 5G has its own negatives, but as an all-rounder, it’s a tad better (and it’s got great gaming performance, too, like the F23).

70% Samsung Galaxy F23 5G First Impressions: More Powerful and 5G-Ready
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Samsung has been on the top of its game when it comes to the software of its recent launches, and it's nice to see the same level of attention paid to budget offerings too. The Galaxy F23 5G runs OneUI 4.1 based on Android 12, and Samsung has promised two years of OS upgrades and four years of security updates, which is really good. The pricing of the Samsung Galaxy F23 5G puts it in close quarters with the Redmi Note 11 Pro and the Realme 9 5G Speed Edition. The Galaxy F23 5G is at a slight disadvantage since the others offer better bundled accessories, including fast chargers. Can the Galaxy F23 5G deliver a good enough user experience to make it worth considering? We will be testing the performance, cameras and battery life of the Galaxy F23 5G over the next couple of days, so don't miss our full review coming soon.
