Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy M11

74.4% Samsung Galaxy M11 Review - Very affordable Samsung smartphone with terrible cameras | Notebookcheck
The price of the Galaxy M11 was just 99 Euros (~$122) during the Black Friday week a few weeks ago. However, some compromises have to be made when buying the entry-level phone due to the very low price. You can find out which ones in our review of the Galaxy smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy M11 Review
Source: Mobygyaan English
What’s good on the phone is its decent built quality and curvy design with a punch-hole selfie camera in the display. We would expect an AMOLED display since there’s nothing interesting about the phone, but Samsung chooses a TFT HD screen. You also get Dolby Atmos support, a dedicated microSD card, and a Type-C USB port. The camera performs below our expectation levels and the obsolete CPU led us to a disappointment. If you are looking to buy a phone around Rs 10,000 price tag, the Redmi Note 8 and the realme Narzo 10 are some good choices.

Model:

The Samsung Galaxy M series is a line of online-exclusive mid-tier smartphones manufactured by Samsung Electronics. The main difference between the M series and the better-known A and J series is the fact that these smartphones offer a premium touch, such as a teardrop notch, slim bezels and a polished design. The latest model to join the Galaxy M series is the Samsung Galaxy M11. This phone has been released as a successor to the Galaxy M10 which was released last year. While its predecessor had a dual rear camera setup, the M11 has been incorporated with a triple rear camera setup. It includes a 13-megapixel primary shooter with f/1.8 aperture, a 2-megapixel depth sensor with an f/2.4 lens, and a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture and a 115-degree field of view. This set, in principle, will definitely be able to meet the expectations of any basic user who is not looking for extraordinary results. As for selfies, there is an 8-megapixel selfie shooter with a f/2.0 aperture in the front, maintaining features of higher range devices for making portrait-like selfies, e.g. with Live Focus.

In terms of its display, the Samsung Galaxy M11 has been equipped with a 6.4-inch PLS capacitive touch screen with a 720 x 1560 resolution. The device runs on Android 10.0 under Samsung One UI 2.0. As for the processor, the device comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 paired with an Adreno 506 GPU. Compared to the Snapdragon 435, the Snapdragon 450 was found to boast 25 percent faster computing performance and a 25 percent increase in graphics performance. The Adreno 506 was found to perform fairly well in gaming, too. The Galaxy M11 has been incorporated with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage that can be expanded with a microSD card. As for connectivity, this device is both 3G and 4G capable and also has a built-in GPS receiver. It also comes with a fingerprint sensor, an accelerometer, a proximity and light sensor.

As far as the battery is concerned, the Samsung Galaxy M11 carries a rather large 5,000mAh battery that is likely to last several days on a full charge. It also has a 15W fast-charging charger. While this is definitely not the extreme power seen with other manufacturers, it is understandable, since this is a mid-range device that charges through a USB Type-C port. The Samsung Galaxy M11 can be found in three colors, namely Black, Blue and Violet, which the users can choose from depending on personal choice and preference. The M11 does have great features to ponder on, but the choice of owning one is entirely subjective and depends on individual interest and need, as different individuals might look for different features in the same phone.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


75.2%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
