Design and Display
Comparing the design of the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G to that of its non-5G sibling shows very little difference. As we both devices share a similar design.
As with its non-5G sibling, we have a chassis, whose design is made up of cues from other Samsung smartphones. This is true for both the front and rear panel designs.
On the rear, we have a square camera module, bearing three cameras and an LED flash, in lieu of the four cameras and the LED flash sitting outside the module as seen on its non-5G sibling. This is basically one of the ways you could tell them apart. Aside from the camera module, we also have the Samsung branding.
Upfront, we have a 6.6 inch TFT display with a drop notch, in lieu of the smaller 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display, which is yet another factor for differentiation. The highlights of this display include a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, a density of approximately 399 PPI, and a 90Hz refresh rate.
The colour options we have on the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G includes Gray, White, Mint, and Violet
The camera department is where the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G falls behind the regular Galaxy A22.
For starters, we have a triple rear camera system here, as opposed to the quad rear camera system on its non-5G sibling. This is due to the absence of the dedicated depth camera, which may not be much of a big deal to many.
The absence of the dedicated depth camera leaves us with a 48MP primary camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 5MP ultrawide camera in lieu of the 8MP ultrawide camera on its non-5G sibling. This setup is capable of shooting videos up to 1080p @ 30fps.
Moving up front, we have a single 8MP camera with an aperture of f/2.2, as opposed to the 13MP front camera on its non-5G sibling. This camera is capable of recording video up to 1080p @ 30fps.
Hardware and Software
Performance-wise, the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G takes the lead, offering a more capable package. The chief of its performance package is its Octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G processor with a 7nm process.
We also have a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. Its RAM and storage options include 64GB 4GB RAM, 128GB 4GB RAM, 128GB 6GB RAM and 128GB 8GB RAM. This goes to say we pretty much have a higher RAM option, in comparison to its non-5G sibling.
The battery on here is a non-removable 5000mAh Li-Po battery, paired with a 15W fast charge, which isn’t really substantial, just as seen on its non-5G sibling.
On the software side, we have the One UI Core 3.1 user interface running on the Andriod 11 operating system.
For connectivity on this device, we have a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB port, and Bluetooth.
Internet connectivity on the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G is capped at 5G LTE, which means enthusiasts can utilize 5G for downloads, uploads, and streaming e.t.c, provided they are in an area with 5G reception.
