Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy M55

79% Samsung Galaxy M55 Review: Is it better than the Galaxy A35?
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
Okay, so is the Galaxy M55 a good option for the price? Honestly, if I was looking for a Samsung option at that very price range, I would rather go with the A35 instead, and that too for a lot of many reasons. First, you get a premium design, better IP67 ingress protection, better display protection, and better cameras on the A35. I know some of you might think that the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 will save this phone, but no, even the Exynos 1380 on the Galaxy A35 can pull off almost similar gaming results with much less heating. So if you absolutely need the Samsung Experience, my suggestion is you better get the Galaxy A35 instead at NPR 46,999 for the 8/128GB trim or add some more money and get the 8/256GB cue at NPR 51,999.

Samsung Galaxy M55 review: Not cutting edge, yet makes a compelling option
Source: Business Standard English
With its good performance and satisfactory battery life, the Samsung Galaxy M55 emerges as a solid option for users who value functionality over aesthetics and build quality. The inclusion of 45W fast charging and a vibrant display further enhances its appeal. With that said, if your priority lies in a camera-centric smartphone with superior build quality and a premium user experience, you may find other options within Samsung's lineup or from other brands in the same price range.

Samsung Galaxy M55 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Samsung Galaxy M55 smartphone comes with pretty solid specs, which include good software, decent battery life, and appealing camera results. All of those factors are great, and the phone does bring a stunning display so that content streaming won’t be a hassle. But still, there are some aspects that this phone lacks. For instance, the device didn’t have decently built quality, which gives an inexpensive feel even though it’s a mid-range phone. On the other hand, the camera software does lack when it comes to lowlight photography. At the same time, the performance department is also great as compared to other mid-range phones that even offer Snapdragon chipsets in the same price range. But if you are looking for an alternative smartphone, you can choose an alternative option like Vivo iQOO Neo 9 would be a fantastic choice. It would bring superb built quality, amazing software customization, and better performance. But still, consider all of the factors to make a wise decision according to your needs.

75% Samsung Galaxy M55 5G review: a no-frills smartphone that delivers on most counts
Source: 91mobiles English
The Samsung Galaxy M55 5G is priced in India starting Rs 26,999. This goes up to Rs 32,999 for the top-end 12GB RAM variant. The handset delivers respectable value for money, although you can find options that deliver superior performance and cutting-edge features within the segment. The POCO X6 Pro (review), for instance, delivers a class-leading performance that can handle almost everything thrown at it with ease. The handset might appeal to power users. Additionally, most of the competitors, if not all, come with a charger bundled in the box. However, if you are looking for a capable, no-frills smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy M55 5G emerges as a strong contender with its vibrant Super AMOLED Plus display, good camera performance in daylight, and respectable battery life. Moreover, its extended software support compared to its competitors ensures that the M55 5G will remain relevant until at least 2028.

60% Samsung Galaxy M55 5G review: Blend of the good and the bad
Source: Think Digit English
My opinion on the Samsung Galaxy M55 5G is mixed. We are getting Samsung’s OneUI, but with bloatware and ads. We are getting a smaller battery, but the backup remains very good. We are getting a slightly less detailed display (on paper), but the quality is still great. We are not getting an Exynos chip, but the Qualcomm Snapdragon is also 2 years old. After the Samsung Galaxy S series and the Galaxy A-series, it is now time for Samsung to refresh the more common Samsung Galaxy M series of smartphones. With the new Samsung Galaxy M35 and Galaxy M55, Samsung aims to make its budget-centric devices more premium. The Samsung Galaxy M55, which is the bigger sibling among the two, comes with quite a few new things, but misses out on stuff at the same time. But does it make sense as an upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy M54 or has Samsung just launched the Samsung Galaxy M55 for the sake of it? Let’s find out.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

71.33%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
