Samsung Galaxy A22 5G: Worth Buying?
The plus points of the Galaxy A22 5G are 11 5G bands’ support, 90Hz refresh rate, and a 5,000 mAh battery. However, we cannot consider the Dimensity 700 chip as a plus point in this price range. Since the same chipset is available in smartphones like the Realme 8 5G and the Redmi Note 10T 5G that are selling at around Rs. 15,000.
Besides, the Galaxy A22 5G skips the OIS technology, while the 4G model comes with OIS support. Also, the Galaxy A22 4G is based on a Super AMOLED panel, which is missing in the 5G variant.
