Samsung Galaxy A22 (4G) test: Marathon runner over Sprinter

Samsung Galaxy A22 (4G) test: Marathon runner over Sprinter

The Galaxy A22 may be an entry-level smartphone, but it still has four photo modules on its back. We see the 48MP main sensor, whose lens opens at f / 1.8. It comes with an ultra wide angle of 8 Mbps (f / 2.2), a macro module and a depth of 2 Mbps. Such a technical paper Xiaomi Redmi Note10 We can compare it.

The core module uses technology Pixel-pinning, Allows you to combine four photo sites into one to capture more light. By default, the smartphone captures 12MPX snapshots, but it is still possible to choose the 48MPX mode in its settings.

Main volume: 48 megapixels, f / 1.8, eq. 26 mm

In the field of photography the Samsung Galaxy A22 was not really expected. By day, the results are usable, but the rendering is very average. The temperature of the scene was well copied, but the colors were washed out. The rendering of the Redmi Note 10 is definitely very saturated, but the image is better defined and the colors are much clearer. This can be seen especially in the shots on the lower right. The Galaxy A22 is not sharp yet.

At night, unfortunately it gets worse quickly. Even with sharp image smoothing, the A22 really struggles to retain details. The Redmi Note10 Suffered from the same difficulties, but the contrast and strong colors allow it to do better. You will understand, night photography can be especially complicated.

Method 48 MPX

Like its competitors, it can capture footage in its entirety. The film manages to entertain as well as inform. Let’s see if this is the case for this Galaxy A22.

During the day, the 48 MPX mode is very stable. We have the idea that it actually saves a little detail and sharpness, and the overall smoothness is minimal. The variation is less compelling and much nicer to look at in its entirety. So we advise you to switch to this mode if you want to capture complex shots.

At night, this method is no miracle. We have the idea of ​​zooming in, but the overall rendering is similar, so disappointing. So we will only use it if we want to carve a part of the photo.

Ultra wide-angle volume: 8 megapixels, f / 2.2, 123

Ultra wide-angle modules are becoming more popular, but they are rarely promising, especially for entry-level models. Does the Galaxy A22 deviate from the rule?

Day rendering is not very sharp. Without shining, the Redmi Note10 Is already performing better. This is not noticeable in the image, but it should also be noted that the distortion on the sides of the scenes is very pronounced. The color temperature is also very cool. So overall it struggles to convince …

At night, unfortunately we end up with porridge that we almost can’t use pixels. We distinguish a few more things than our competitor, but not enough to satisfy.

Front and video module

The Samsung Galaxy A22 13MPX sensor is open to f / 2.2 and placed on the center apex. Selby taken with him looks great with very pleasant warm tones. Portrait mode adds an effect Bokeh Works well on long hair showing its limits quickly.

Samsung unfortunately only offers full HD shooting at 30 frames per second. Equipped with a very powerful chip it allows all its competitors to shoot in 4K at 30 frames per second. So this is once again limited. The 1080p mode, however, benefits from effective stabilization and does not easily damage the battery.
