PS: I'm typing this on a 3.5 year old Samsung, which too was highly underspecced in its time, or an "e-waste" in your words. Surely I produced less waste than someone who buys the latest flagship every year or two.

Is OIS and 90hz AMOLED really that expensive?, this phone is priced near x3 pro, redmi note 10s, and realme 8, which lacks 90hz AMOLED and OIS, but is better in every aspect.

Ana at these price range bbk would use sd 460 or Mediatek p22/G25/G35

The one like this

And all the yearly releases of "new" phone (and some companies even going as far as releasing 2 flagships a year)

There is a stagnation at what makes sense, for the first time even I see no reason at all to upgrade my current SD855 phone, just because anything I had in my hands is really that much better.

Because we need to consider the price too.

Anyhow it is what it is.

I know this is a low-end phone and all, but I really dislike phones like this. I call them e-waste because that's exactly what they are. We don't have unlimited resources on this planet, but phones like this just ignore that fact when their materials could be used to make something better or more full featured.

Who asked for the LTE only version of an already low-end phone?

Ok, I bought the A22 5g which was at the Max of my budget, great phone, I love this thing. I'm normally a very techy person so I was looking at other phones when my family convinced me to go more streamlined and get a samsung, it was kind of an impulse decision even thought I I spend around 2 hours looking at videos on 'is it good?' And among others. I knew there was a 5g and 4g version but I didn't know you needed a new sim plan to use 5g, so I'm stuck running 4g and no 5g with a slightly worse phone and no macro camera that actually annoys me slightly more than you would think. It's a great phone either way don't think it runs slowly it doesn't I just think take more time than I I to choose, because if you know your specifically going to use 5g, get the 5g version, if not, get the 4g

APPLE-FOREVER, 30 Dec 2021OMG. Huawei Nova 7i Clone. Poor Samsung XDMost cheap phones look the same.

Heck even expensive ones often do.

But I agree this looks a little bit too much like that Huawei

In my country a22 is priced near note 10s, although 10s amoled is a bit downgraded, 10s has alot faster storage, a lot faster gpu, faster cpu, stereo speakers, higher resolution screen, faster charging, 4k video recording & playback, Bluetooth 5.1, and IP53 rating to compensate

OMG. Huawei Nova 7i Clone. Poor Samsung XD

No doubt the best alternative to this Samsung Galaxy A22 could be Nokia X100 and Nokia 5.4

Ancient junk with ultraslow eMMC memory. Xiaomi, Huawei, BBK offering UFS memory for that price.

Hi guys.

Thanks for the review.

I've bought A22 for my wife recently on Christmas sale for around 190 (shipping included).
It was a no brainer since A22 5G was offered for 210 and A32 5G was selling for insane 275. Unfortunately A32 (non 5G) wasn't available in my country (Croatia) at that time and afaik it won't be anymore. Everyone's selling 5G model only. Also, used A32 4G models could be found but for not less than 235 so yeah, that's just how it is here.

My wife is used to Samsung UI and absolutely loves it, so everything else was a no-go for me.

So far, she's perfectly happy with it: screen is great (720p is perfectly acceptable, while 90Hz is very noticable), exterior design and overall grip is perfect for her, battery life amazing so far. One UI feels like home. Mediocre camera doesn't bother her since she doesn't care too much about photographs on mobile phones, and overall sound is meh but alright.

Just my 2 cents. Cheers!

In my country 64gb version costs around $230 so it's very good choice, Redmi 10 64gb with it's trashy dim IPS screen costs the same. So A22 good device for this money.
