Design & Build Quality

The Samsung Galaxy F22 has a glossy and a no-frills design. The smartphone is made of plastic material with the display panel mode of Gorilla Glass 5. The plastic back body has a matte finish with fine grooves for better grip. On the front side, the giant dewdrop shaped notch display has noticeable side bezels.  

The appearance of the phone is very similar to the Galaxy M32. The weight of the phone is 203 grams, it may be due to the large 6000 mAh battery. With 9.3mm thickness, the phone becomes a little bit bulky but it fits perfectly in the hands even the users can operate the phone single handedly.

Display

The Samsung F22 has a big 6.4 inch display with a waterdrop-style notch at the top and a thick chin area at the bottom. It has a HD+ super AMOLED 90Hz panel with an aspect ratio of 20:9 along with 720 x 1600 pixels resolution. It is a sub-15K smartphone so getting an HD+ display makes sense. 

The display is scratch resistant with a coating of corning gorilla glass 5 on the top of the display. Samsung has incorporated widevine L1 support to help stream content from online services like Netflix, disney + hotstar etc. The eye comfort shield feature keeps your viewing experience at best by limiting blue light and using warmer colors.

Camera

The F22 smartphone comes with a quad rear camera setup consisting of a 48MP primary sensor with a f/1.8 aperture, a 8MP ultra wide angle lens with f/2.2 aperture, 2MP depth and 2MP macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture. On the other side, it has a 13MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture.  

The images clicked through the rear camera setup are very impressive. Camera performs very well in the good lighting conditions. However, you have to compromise with the picture quality at night time. The front camera also works well in daytime and you can take wide angle selfies with accurate colour reproduction.

Performance

The Samsung Galaxy F22 smartphone is equipped with a MediaTek Helio G80 processor fabricated on a 12 nm node. The chipset comes with the octa core arrangement with two 2.0GHz Cortex-A75 cores and six 1.8Ghz Cortex-A55 cores. The GPU used in the device is Mali- G52 MC2. 

The smartphone can run through daily phone tasks like browsing, calling, texting, watching videos etc. at ease. Even I played a few graphic intensive games like battleground Mobile India and free fire smoothly. Meanwhile, you could face lag or frame drops a bit. 

The 90Hz refresh rate on Galaxy F22 is an interesting and useful feature. Usually smartphones have 60Hz refresh rate, thus with F22 you could end up getting jitters and lag while multitasking.

Connectivity

The Galaxy F22 phone supports 4G, 3G and 2G networks in India. However, the device is not 5G ready. It supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual band connectivity. The device packs a bluetooth v5.0 with LE and A2DP, GPS with Galileo, Glonass, BDS and A-GPS. There is a USB type C 2.0 port for USB tethering and connectivity for data sharing.

Battery

The smartphone is equipped with a super large 6000 mAh battery. The battery could last for two days on light to moderate usage while you can get one day battery backup with moderate to heavy usage of the phone. 

There is a type C port for charging purposes and the device comes with a 15W fast charger but actually it doesn’t charge the devices as fast as it should be. It takes almost 3 hours to charge the device fully from 0% to 100%.
