The world of Samsung smartphones is as diverse as their appliances and home solutions. It's huge and has something for everybody. In pursuit of providing something for everyone, Samsung launched their M series, an online exclusive budget Samsung line back in 2019. Standing in 2022, the 4th generation M13 looks every bit as promising as its previous three generations. Samsung Galaxy M13 5G offers essential features and is a total bang for the buck. The device was officially released globally on 23rd July 2022. Let's look at its in-depth review. Key Specifications of Samsung Galaxy M13 5G Design and Build Quality Before we start, keep in mind that this is an ultra-budget device geared for the most basic user. As a result, you won’t find any out-of-the-ordinary specs or features. Rather it's an amalgamation of average specs and performance to create value over cost. With that aside, let's dig into the design and build the quality of the device. The design of the Samsung Galaxy M13 5G is plain and straightforward. There is a plastic frame and back with a Gorilla glass 3 protection on the front. All the usual ports and buttons are present here. In addition to the dual sim slots, there is an additional dedicated port for the micro SDXC. The volume rocker and the power button are also present. Just like last year, the power button doubles as the fingerprint scanner. Overall, the design and the build quality feel sturdy and relative to the price. Read Top 10 Upcoming Phones in August 2022 in Bangladesh The display The display of the Samsung Galaxy M13 5G is a PLS LCD panel. Now PLS or LCD might sound outdated by the 2022 standard, but it's still the go-to choice for entry-level devices. The panel is a 6.5-inch HD+ resolution panel which is good for about 270 ppi. With such average specs, one would think that the display isn't up to the par. But honestly given the price, it's hard to complain. Samsung is a market leader when it comes to displaying tech and even though the panel on the M13 5G is sub-par, it definitely stands above its competitors. The display also gets relatively bright for an LCD panel. Outdoor legibility is pretty good. Users won't have to squint their eyes to figure stuff out in direct sunlight. While this panel isn't exactly the best for media consumption, it still gets the job done. Usually, we don't see any rated glass protector in this price bracket. So, it's refreshing to see rated protection, even if it's a couple of generations older. Read Tracking Lost or Stolen Smartphone: Some easy ways to follow The Camera Usually, we see a flurry of camera sensors in this price range. The main selling pitch is several lenses and a high battery capacity. But surprisingly enough, the M13 5G only comes with 2 sensors on the back. The main sensor is a 50 MP f/1.8 wide-angle sensor and the other is a gimmicky 2 MP depth sensor. We are not sure whether the depth sensor does anything or not but the 50 MP main sensor does its job pretty well. The pictures came out pretty good in outdoor conditions. Pictures looked sharp and crisp with high contrast and color pop. That's usually the case with Samsung post-processing. But the problem starts indoors and with artificial lights. Even though the sensor is a very capable one, the lack of processing power reduces the picture quality. Samsung night mode which is basically a longer shutter speed was consistent every time. We didn't notice any overexposure or underexposure issues. The videography is clocked at 1080P at 30 fps. Again, the processing power is the limiting factor here. The front camera is a 5 MP one. It's a very basic sensor with basic performance. The front camera basically sums up the overall performance of the camera, it's nothing exceptional, but not bad either. Read Nothing Phone 1 Review: Beyond the Hype and the Glyph Processor and Performance Samsung has partnered with MediaTek for the M series since its inception. The affordable chips have helped to keep the cost down over the years. The 4th generation M13 5G features MediaTek MT6833 Dimensity 700 processor based on a 7 Nm architecture. The octa-core processor has 2 2.2 GHz Cortex-A76 and 6 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 chip designs with Mali-G57 MC2 as the GPU. The specs confirm that the M13 5G is meant for entry-level and casual usage. This is not a heavy gaming device by any means. Rather it's best suited for social media and web browsing with occasional media consumption. Even though it's not a gaming device doesn't mean it can't handle gaming. You will be able to play demanding titles like COD and Genshin Impact at low settings. The device does get heated after about 30 odd minutes of gaming and throttling kicks in. But that's what comes with gaming on a basic processor. The device comes with One UI 4 out of the box based on Android 12. One UI has come a long way from its bloatware-filled days to being one of the best Android skins out there. Read Xiaomi Redmi K50 Gaming Edition Review: Key features, advantages, disadvantages Battery and Charge Time The Samsung Galaxy M13 5G features a 5000 mAh battery. The large battery combined with an efficient processor makes the device last for a long time. Users will be comfortably able to get around 9 to 10 hours of SoT out of the device. The large battery is also complemented by 15 W fast charging. It still takes around 2 hours to fully charge the device, so be aware of that. Price of Samsung Galaxy M13 5G The Samsung Galaxy M13 5G hasn't been officially launched in Bangladesh yet. The 6/64GB base variant comes in at 9,999 INR in India which roughly translates to 11,971 BDT (1 INR = 1.20 BDT). However, the price may vary depending on several factors when it finally launches in Bangladesh. Final Words The Samsung Galaxy M13 5G is an all-around capable entry-level device. The design, glass protection, and camera are its main selling point. The device also does a terrific job with optimization and offers a seamless experience even in an entry-level processor. The only noticeable drawback has to be the display. Other than that, the Galaxy M13 5G can be a great option for anyone looking for a daily driver at an affordable price.

Samsung has perfected its mid-range offering through the Galaxy A series. This is a company that brings devices for every price range as well as region-specific devices. The A series is the culmination of devices from entry-level to premium mid-range devices with the spec also seeing incremental upgrades. Samsung Galaxy A73 5G is the highest-end A series device from Samsung. This latest Sasung A series phone also boasts the overall best specs from the line. The A73 5G was released on 22nd April 2022 following the global unpacked event by Samsung. Here’s us telling you the good and bad of the device so that you can make an informed decision. Key Specifications of Samsung Galaxy A73 5G Design and Build Quality The design choice has been quite unified by Samsung in the last few years. The Galaxy A73 finds itself in the mix between the S21 and the S22 series. The device has a unified rectangular camera housing which is slightly raised to make the camera bump more prominent. The quad camera setup is certainly the most distinguishing feature of the back of the device. Read: Samsung Galaxy F13 Review: Is it a good budget phone? The A73 5G is a plastic-built phone. For the price it comes at, the material choice is quite unacceptable. But that’s how it's always been with the A series devices. The frosted finish on the back gives it some form of premium feel. But that’s just a saving grace. The port and button choices remain the same. The in-display fingerprint sensor felt a little slower this time around. But it's mostly due to the animation rather than the mechanism itself. Other than that, the headphone jack is missing on the A73. Again, this is nothing new as only the entry-level A03 and A23 series devices come with the headphone jack currently. One of the important pros this year is the dual stereo speaker. Samsung has always ensured superior sound quality in their devices. The A73 takes it up a notch by vastly improving the earpiece speaker. The result is a crisp and loud sound experience that doesn’t distort or break at high volume. Read OnePlus Nord 2T Review: Know Pros, Cons Overall, the design of the A73 follows long-established standards by Samsung. The plastic build might be a letdown but overall, it’s a nice package. The Display The core strength of any Samsung device has always been its display. From entry-level to flagships, LCD to Super AMOLED, Samsung brings quality and calibration unlike any other in the market. The Galaxy A73 features a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. This is a bump up from last year’s 90 Hz panel found on the A72. The A73 also removes the adaptive refresh rate. So, users will have to select anyone between 60 Hz and 120 Hz. The constant 120 Hz will have an impact on the battery life, but that’s the tradeoff for the smooth buttery experience. The display also supports Widevine L1 encryption for secured video playback. There’s nothing much to say about the quality itself. It’s a Samsung panel and users will get excellent output from it. Overall, the display impresses through and through making it the perfect media consumption device in the upper mid-range section. Also read: Samsung Galaxy A04s: The coming soon budget killer phone The Camera The Samsung Galaxy A73 5G is stacked when it comes to cameras. The rear features a quad camera setup with a 108 MP main sensor, 12 MP ultrawide, and a couple of 5 MP macro and depth sensors. While the macro and depth sensors might feel a bit gimmicky, the 108 MP main and 12 MP ultrawide shines out. The main sensor can capture great details thanks to the large aperture. Images look sharp with full dynamic range. The quality doesn’t falter in low light as well. In addition to the dedicated night mode, Samsung also boasts variable shutter speed to capture the best possible image even in the darkest settings. The exposure to artificial light also impresses as it doesn’t suffer from over or under-exposing the subject. The post-processing from Samsung has always been great. The A73 takes it up a notch. This is undoubtedly the best camera experience in any mid-range spec device. The front features a 32 MP sensor. It’s a decent shooter which is a carry-over from the previous generation. Read Xiaomi Redmi Note 11: Customized Variant Exclusively in Bangladesh The main camera supports up to 4K videography at 30 fps. The videography is also amazing thanks to the gyro-EIS onboard. Overall, the camera system on the A73 is capable of the likes of flagships from the company. Processor and Performance The A73 5G is after all a mid-range device. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 778 5G chipset. The octa-core processor has a 4 2.4 GHz Kryo 670 and 4 1.8 GHz Kryo 670 chip design with Adreno 642L to complement the graphics. The 778 5G is a very capable processor. Of course, it won’t challenge the likes of 8 Gen 1 but it makes a space for casual users. Day-to-day usage like video streaming and browsing is a breeze coupled with a high refresh rate display. Beyond that, the processor can also handle graphics-intensive titles pretty well. Games like PUBG and Free Fire run at moderate settings without any frame drop. The balanced processor also helps to keep the device stable in long gaming sessions. In short, users won't find any thermal throttling in this device. Read Vivo Y01 Review: Is it a worthy entry level budget phone? For an upper mid-range device, the value proposition concerning the performance of A73 is definitely commendable. Battery and Charge Time The Samsung Galaxy A73 5G features a 5000 mAh battery. The large battery is coupled with 25W fast charging. Users can expect to get around 7 to 8 hours of SoT from the device which is pretty standard for an upper mid-range device. Price of Samsung Galaxy A73 5G The official price of the Samsung Galaxy A73 5G in Bangladesh is TK 68,500. The price is dependent on the vendors and offers provided at the time of purchase. Verdict The Samsung Galaxy A73 5G brings the reliability of Samsung with near flagship-level performance. The display, camera, and processor all components shine in their respective department. However, the only letdown is the plastic body. Now the question remains, would the users be interested to buy a mid-range device at such a high price when there are other, proper flagship alternatives? Read Tecno Camon 19 Neo Review: Know its advantages, disadvantages
With over 23% singular market share across all mobile devices, Samsung is undoubtedly the largest mobile brand in the world. But this title didn’t limit their innovations in mid-range A-series or the flagship S-series . The strategic and inclusive approach of Samsung saw them producing smartphones and feature phones in every budget range. The company even has a dedicated line like the F-series for the ever-growing South Asian market. The latest from this line, the Samsung Galaxy F13 is slated to be launched in India on 29th June 2022. Here goes a detailed overview of this latest Samsung phone. Key Specifications of Samsung Galaxy F13 Design and Build Quality Unlike their upper mid-range and flagship devices, Samsung doesn’t hold onto a specific design set for their F series. In fact, it’s a complete overhaul each year bringing design and internal refresh. The F13 also looks drastically different from the F12. The vertical frosting on the back has been replaced with brushed plastic. The camera housing is now rectangular with a vertical lens arrangement, much like their big brother, the S22. Read Tecno Camon 19 Neo Review: Know its advantages, disadvantages However, both devices share similarity in all the other physical attributes. The display is 0.1 inches larger than the last generation. All the ports and buttons reprise their position including the 3.5 mm headphone jack. The physical fingerprint sensor is yet again side-mounted on the power button. The device is on the heavier side at 207 grams. It's kind of baffling as to why a plastic-built phone would cross the 200 gm mark. But much of it has to do with the large battery packed inside. Overall, the design is much less flashy compared to the previous generation all the while bringing a sense of unison across Samsung’s different lineup. Display The display tech used on the Samsung Galaxy F13 is PLS LCD. The 6.5-inch panel has a 1080P resolution with a Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front. Usually, it's uncommon to see rated protection on the front glass in this price range. But it's definitely a welcomed addition from Samsung. Read Walton Primo R9 Review: Competitive in entry-level budget segment PLS LCD panels aren’t exactly known for the best resolution or viewing angles. especially if compared with AMOLED panels. However, Samsung did an excellent job of calibrating the panel. The colors look deep and punchy with a warmer hue. The viewing angles are also much better than the previous generation. It's almost similar to the IPS LCD panel and anyone would be hard-pressed to tell them apart. To wrap things up, this is definitely a passable display in this budget range. But there are some Chinese brands like Vivo with their Z1x which already provide AMOLED panels in the same price bracket. Camera In hindsight, the camera tech seems to be a downgrade from the F12. The quad-camera setup from last year has been replaced with a triple camera setup. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Read Infinix Note 12 G96 Review: A Budget Phone With Top-Notch Features Most of the complementing lenses are just gimmicks in a budget device. Companies add these lenses simply to use them as a marketing tool rather than for practical usage. Here Samsung has removed a 2 MP macro shooter and increased the main sensor size. The F13 has a 50 MP main shooter with an f/1.8 aperture. The remaining two sensors are a 5 MP ultrawide shooter and a 2 MP depth sensor. This sensor setup is much more practical and useful in different shooting scenarios. As always, the main sensor steals the show here. Images look crisp and sharp in well-lit environments. The dedicated night mode from Samsung ensures equal performance in dark conditions as well. The performance isn’t up to par with the flagships or midrange phones, but users will definitely get more than what they’re paying for here. Read Home Audio Speaker Buying Guide, Price Ranges in Bangladesh The videography is limited to 1080P at 30 fps. The lower processor is why Samsung couldn’t push it up to 4K. There’s also an 8 MP selfie camera. It’s a generic sensor that gets the job done with nothing out of the ordinary. Processor and Performance Perhaps the only complaint can be made about the processor. Samsung is known to market its phones with both Snapdragon and their own in-house Exynos processors. But the F series exclusively ships with the Exynos variants worldwide. But that’s not the problem here. The problem is the same chipset that was used in the F12. While Samsung made some subtle changes in the design and the cameras, it used the same processor and GPU from last year. Read Samsung Galaxy A04s: The coming soon budget killer phone The Galaxy F13 sports Exynos 850 processor built on the 8 Nm architecture. It has an octa-core base with 4 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 and 4 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 chip layouts. Now the all-important question is, will there be a performance dip since the processor is a year old? It's both a yes and no. Yes in a sense that graphics-intensive games will see some stutters and frame drops. But the Android 12 and the OneUI 4.1 optimizations will increase the overall lightweight task performance of the device. So, the device will dip in performance in certain areas but also increase in others. Battery and Charge Time The Samsung Galaxy F13 will feature a 6000 mAh battery. This is part of the reason why a plastic-built phone crossed the 200 gm weight class. The high battery capacity should be able to power the device for up to 10 hours with moderate usage. There’s also a 15W fast charger included in the box. But there’s no charge time data yet. Read Xiaomi 12 Pro Review: Is it a value for money flagship? Price of Samsung Galaxy F13 The official price of the Samsung Galaxy F13 in India will be 11,999 Rs. on release. That roughly amounts to 14,179 BDT (1 INR = 1.18 BDT). But that’s just speculation. The price might differ depending on various factors when it becomes official in Bangladesh. Verdict Samsung took a safe bet with the galaxy F13. In fact, they played it so safe that they used a chip from 2021 to 2022. Other than this obvious striking issue, the device performs well in the design, camera, and display front. Samsung Galaxy F13 isn’t really suited for gaming and neither Samsung is marketing it as such. The device will work best as a daily driver with casual to moderately intensive use. Read Vivo T2x Review: Should you consider this midrange gaming phone?
It's almost the middle of Q2. And that has historically been the prime slot for budget and mid-range device releases every year. Brands like Infinix and Xiaomi have already launched their budget options. On the other hand, Samsung is slated to release their budget offering from the A-series, the A04s some time this month. Samsung Galaxy A04s is tipped to be released on 26th June 2022 in India. With the impressive design, build quality, and Samsung reliability, will this be the new budget king of 2022? Let's look at the specs to find out. Key Specifications of Samsung Galaxy A04s Design and Build Quality The A series from Samsung has historically been mid-range to upper mid-range devices. Samsung opted for the s variant of the A series to fill the void of entry-level devices. As a result, the A04s is expected to resemble the A04 which is slated for a Q3 release. Starting with the design, Samsung has been bringing uniformity across the huge range of devices they put out each year. While this might seem like a lack of innovation, the trickle-down of the design from the flagships brings similar aesthetics at a fraction of the price. Read Xiaomi 12 Pro Review: Is it a value for money flagship? The A04s look much like the recently released S 22 Ultra. The same boxy design is present here with side-mounted buttons and ports. The main drawback with a budget device is its build quality. While Samsung’s build quality is impeccable, the polycarbonate back and the plastic frame don’t help much. But given the price, the choice is understandable. Unlike the A04, the A04s will not have an under-display fingerprint scanner. Instead, the sensor will be mounted on the power button. Everything else is as usual with the Type-C port, dual sim slot, and micro SDXC support. To round things up, the design of the A04s is a direct inspiration from the Samsung flagships. And even if the device doesn’t perform to that standard, it will bring an overall satisfactory outlook and aesthetics. Read Vivo T2x Review: Should you consider this midrange gaming phone? Display The display of the Samsung A04s is expected to be around 6.5-inches. The 6.5-inch panel only magnifies the overall footprint of the device as it still has some chunky bezels compared to 2022 standards. As a result, the A04s are expected to be slightly larger in dimension compared to the A03s. The display itself is an HD+ PLS TFT panel. TFT panels are becoming increasingly obsolete even by budget standards. The panel is seen on ultra-budget devices nowadays as most budget devices come with at least a 720P LCD panel. The main issue with TFT panels is the viewing angles. A slight curve from the straight view shows a shifting color with the extreme angles rendering the display to be completely dark. Beyond that, the colors appear to be washed out and the blacks look deep gray at best. Even at a budget price point, the display has to be one of the underwhelming aspects of the A04s. Read Infinix Hot 12 Play Review: Should you buy this budget phone? Camera The Samsung A04s will be sporting a triple camera setup. Rather than creating a base for the camera module, Samsung has fitted each of the three lenses individually onto the polycarbonate back. The main sensor is expected to be a 13 MP wide-angle shooter. The complementing lenses are two 2 MP macro and depth sensors. There aren’t any hands-on samples of the camera module yet as the release of the device is still two weeks off. But Samsung has not made any changes to the camera module from the previous iterations. It's still the same configuration found on the A03s. Going by that, the A04s should also perform similarly. The A03s performed well under well-lit environments like most other budget 13 MP cameras. The problem starts when the lights become low. Even with Samsung’s post-processing, there are noticeable grains in the images. Now that the A04s have zero change from the A03s, it is at least expected that Samsung would try to mitigate the shortage with better post-processing. Read OnePlus Nord CE2 Lite 5G Review: Know its Pros, Cons Processor and Performance The processor of the Samsung A04s is expected to be an octa-core one. Octa-core has become a norm for the budget to flagships alike and the choice was expected given the brand’s depth with their own as well as Snapdragon’s processor. It's expected that the A04s will come with two different processors for the global and the European market. The European market will probably see the Exynos 850 processor whereas the global market will see the Snapdragon 480 processor. The choice of dual-processor is nothing new for Samsung as almost all their lineups come in both Snapdragon and Exynos options. The processors themselves are built on the 8 Nm architecture with Adreno 506 rendering the GPU support. The performance should be around and on par with most budget devices. There isn't any hands-on user experience data available yet. But given the entire package, it will be more of a casual usage device rather than being a heavy usage one. Read Xiaomi offers up to Tk12,000 cashback on smartphones Battery and Charge Time The Samsung A04s will ship with a 4000 mAh battery. The battery might seem a bit small since almost all the budget devices in this price point come with at least 5000 mAh capacity. The low res screen helps to make the device last up to 7 hours in continuous usage. There is an 18W fast charger included as well. Price of Samsung Galaxy A04s The expected price of the Samsung Galaxy A04s is 11,999 Rs which roughly amounts to 14,300 BDT (1 INR = 1.20 BDT). However, the price may vary once it becomes officially available in Bangladesh. Verdict The Samsung Galaxy A04s doesn’t really bring anything new to the table. It’s the same old formula packed in a more streamlined design. while the build and the design are something to get excited about, the display is a letdown. And so is the camera as it’s a simple carry-over from the previous generation. Overall, the A04s has the reliability of Samsung as its greatest sales point.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus is the embodiment of an incremental improvement. It looks and functions similarly to its predecessor, enough so that it is tough to fully separate this phone from the Galaxy S21 Plus that came before it – largely. Thankfully, last year’s middle Galaxy S child was a pretty fine phone on its own, and Galaxy S22 Plus review reveals that its follow-up is likewise a terrific product. Key Features of Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus Design The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus is an undeniably attractive phone, even more so when dressed in the lovely pink hue of the review unit. Not only does the Armor Aluminum chassis enhance longevity, but it also has an ultra-premium feel to it. Fortunately, Samsung has retained the Galaxy S22 Plus's back. Both the front and back of the gadget are protected with Gorilla Glass Victus Plus. Samsung's camera housing maintains the "Contour Cut" design. It's a pleasure to gaze at the rear camera module's beautiful chamfered edges. Although this is a large gadget, it feels extremely safe in the hand. It's fantastic to notice that the metal frame prevents the tablet from being too slippery. Read Vivo Y33s 4G Review: Do features accompany premium look? The smaller but more rounded, flatter, and sharper edges tie everything together well. Samsung has done an excellent job with this model's design, taking what made its predecessor so distinctive and basically perfecting it. Display The Galaxy S22 Plus, like its predecessor, has a flat Infinity-O display with thin bezels. The 6.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X Display supports a maximum resolution of FHD Plus and a refresh rate of 48Hz–120Hz. It intelligently adjusts the refresh rate according to the content you're viewing. As a result, the device's battery life is extended. One can never grow bored of using a fast refresh rate display, and we're delighted that Samsung's Galaxy S flagship series now has one. Read Oppo F21 Pro Review: Camera Phone Made in Bangladesh Samsung offers the industry's greatest mobile OLED screens, which puts the Galaxy S22 Plus in a class of its own. The display has a noticeable increase in brightness. The Galaxy S21 Plus can attain a maximum brightness of 1,300 nits, while the Galaxy S22 Plus can reach a whopping 1,750 nits. As a consequence, outside visibility is greatly increased. The panel is of exceptional quality. You get true-to-life colors with strong contrast. Additionally, the viewing angles are excellent. When you combine this with the high refresh rate and an in-display fingerprint sensor that performs well, there is nothing more you need from the display. Rear Cameras The Galaxy S21 and S21+ have no hardware changes over the Galaxy S20 and S20+ cameras. With the Galaxy S22 and S22+, this is not the case. There are many significant changes here. There is a 50 MP primary camera rather than a 12MP one, and a true 3x zoom lens rather than a conventional 64MP camera, which means optical magnification rather than digital zoom, comparable to the Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy S21 FE. Read Samsung Galaxy A13 4G Review: Does it live up to the hype? If you assumed the leap from a 12MP to a 50MP sensor would result in significant improvements, you're in for a surprise. There is no discernible difference between the 12MP images taken by the S21+ and the 12MP photos taken by the S22+ during the day, in my experience. The same holds true for videos.
Starting back in 2014, the Galaxy A series has been the consistent provider of entry-level to upper mid-level devices from Samsung. The range of specs and prices offered in this series is unmatched and it has something for everyone. Similar to last year, Samsung launched the entry-level device called Samsung Galaxy A13 4G on 23rd March 2022 in Bangladesh. The device brings a complete design overhaul with some interesting internal choices. So, does it live up to the expectations? Or is it yet another overpriced entry-level smartphone from Samsung? Let’s find out. Key Specifications of Samsung Galaxy A13 4G Design and Build Quality The entry-level A series devices never really had a concrete design setup. Mid-range to flagships devices tend to have set design elements and each release is more like an incremental update. But the A13 is a completely new design that is more streamlined to look like the flagship S22 Ultra. Talk about a premium design experience at a fraction of the price. Read Oppo F21 Pro Review: Camera Phone Made in Bangladesh But design is all that is premium about the device. The A13 is an all-around plastic device with a glass front. The front glass is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 which is not bad considering this is an entry-level device. At 195 g, the device is on the heavier side. But the even weight distribution offsets the weight. The glossy plastic frame and back are a fingerprint magnet so it's better to use a case or a skin to avoid greasy marks. The usual port selection is all here with the 3.5 mm jack being retained for the A13. Fans of the headphone jack should consider themselves lucky as some of the more premium A series devices this year aren’t coming with the port. Read OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G: Leaks, Rumours, Possible Release Date The power button situated on the right doubles as the fingerprint scanner. It’s made to be almost flush with the side frame. Depending on the users, this might take a bit of getting used to. The sim slot also has a dedicated port for the micro SDXC. The only downside with the design of the phone is the speakers. Even though it's an entry-level phone, it's not necessarily dead cheap. Samsung has opted for a single bottom-firing speaker whereas they could have easily included a stereo speaker in this price bracket. Display There’s nothing special about the display of the Samsung Galaxy A13. While Samsung is renowned for its displays across different techs, the same doesn’t hold true for their entry-level phones like the A13. Read Colmi P28 Plus Review: Is It a Worthy Budget Smartwatch? The device features a standard FHD+ PLS LCD. The PLS LCD is yesterday’s technology which grossly falls short compared to the AMOLED or OLED panels of today. But nevertheless. This is what the users will be getting. The panel itself is decent at best. Viewing angles aren’t as sharp as AMOLED or even IPS LCD panels. But the display gets relatively bright so legibility won’t be an issue. To round things up, this display isn’t really the best for media consumption, rather a panel that gets the job done, barely. Camera The A-series devices have always been big on camera and the A 13 follows suit. Users will be getting a quad-camera setup here with a 50 MP f/1.8 wide-angle main sensor. The other sensors are a 5 MP ultrawide, 2 MP macro, and 2 MP depth sensor. Also Read Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4: Here is Everything We Know So Far The main lens performs well under direct sunlight and in well-lit environments. Samsung image processing is a bit contrast and saturation heavy so expect the colors to pop in the images. Dynamic range is also preserved on most shots. One of the gripes with the main sensor is the lack of a dedicated night mode. Instead, the phone automatically adjusts the shutter speed to let in more lights. This somewhat gets the job done but a dedicated night mode would’ve definitely been better. The ultrawide lens takes decent images but the fisheye effect is very prominent here. So much so that objects on the edges would distort quizzically giving an artificial look to the image. The videography maxes out at 1080P at 30 fps. Even though the main sensor is quite capable, Samsung capped the videography for lack of processing power. There is also an 8 MP selfie shooter which is generic at best. Read Samsung Galaxy A53 5G Review: A Fast Phone with Massive Battery Processor and Performance The Samsung Galaxy A13 features an Exynos 850 processor built on the 8 Nm architecture. The processor happens to be another drawback of the device. Understandably, a budget device will have a low processor but the 850 doesn’t really compare with entry-level processors of MediaTek or Snapdragon. Instead, it falls much short of them. The processor is still an octa-core one with a dedicated Mali-G52 GPU. This device isn’t in any way a gaming or heavy usage device. The device can technically run 3D games but at the lowest settings and countless frame drops. The One UI 4.1 is a breath of fresh air here. The highly optimized OS helps to make the device interaction smoother and more intuitive. Overall, it's safe to say that this device is best suited for casual browsing and social media use and not for heavy tasks. Read Vivo Y33s 4G Review: Do features accompany premium look? Battery and Charge Time The device comes with a 5000 mAh battery. Given the processor and the display, users can easily get 9 to 10 hours of continuous usage with the device. As for charging, there is a 15 W fast charger included in the box. Official Price of Samsung Galaxy A13 in Bangladesh The official price of the Samsung Galaxy A13 is 16,999 BDT in Bangladesh. The device is available in all the official Samsung retail stores across the country. Verdict The Samsung Galaxy A13 4G phone brings new design elements with the same build quality and performance as last year. The camera and the battery are definitely the highlights of the device but it drastically falls short on the display and the processor. Considering the price of the device, Samsung could’ve definitely included a better panel. Other than that, it can be a great everyday carry for those looking for reliability over performance.

Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy A23 on 25th March 2022. The phone will be available globally on a rollout schedule. Over the years, the A series has shifted from being flagship entry-level devices to mid-range and premium mid-range categories. With a reminiscent design, powerful battery, and quad-camera system, does the Galaxy A23 bring the promise of an affordable premium experience to the table? Or does it fall short of the idea? Here is a detailed review of the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G. Key Specifications of Samsung Galaxy A23 5G Design and Build Quality The Samsung Galaxy A23 is reminiscent per se of the hugely popular F series device, the Galaxy F23 5G. While the design choices are almost similar, it is both a good and slightly less impressive aspect of the device. The A23 is a plastic device with a glass front. There are other A series devices with an aluminum frame and glass back but those are much higher priced compared to the A23. Read Oppo F21 Pro 5G: Leaks, Rumours, Expected Release Date Moving onto the design details, the phone features a raised camera housing that is flush on all four sides. The back and the frame are made from glossy plastic which inadvertently makes it a fingerprint magnet. The usual buttons and ports are all present in a typical A series fashion. The side-mounted power button also acts as the fingerprint scanner. The device also retains the 3.5 mm headphone jack along with the secondary noise cancellation mic. There are both single and dual sim options with a dedicated slot for micro SDXC. Overall, the design is a tad move away from the usual A series elements. But the build quality and hand feel remain the same as ever like other entry-level A series devices. Read Vivo Y33s 5G: Does it offer value for money? The Display The A series displays have seen quite a jump since its initial days. Now most A series devices come with either IPS LCD panels or Samsung’s proprietary AMOLED panels. But unfortunately, the A23 doesn’t sport any of those. Rather it comes with TFT panels. Now TFT panels were great in the initial days of display tech. Compared to AMOLED and LCD panels, the displays fall well short of the benchmark. The panel on the A23 isn’t terrible, but it isn’t great either. The display washes out colors at max brightness and edges bleeding issues are also prevalent. The viewing angles are nowhere near AMOLED level. Even though the A23 comes with an entry-level price tag, Samsung could have definitely used an LCD panel over the TFT one. The positive aspect here is the protection. The Samsung Galaxy A23 comes with Gorilla Glass 5 making it scratch and shatter-resistant. The Camera The Samsung Galaxy A23 5G has a quad-camera setup. Users won’t generally see a quad setup on such aggressively priced devices. Yet quad cameras have been an important feature of the A-series. Read Xiaomi POCO X4 Pro Review: Know the Pros and Cons
Samsung has been at the forefront of making devices for every market. Whether it’s the industry-leading flagships to entry-level budget devices, the diversity and spoils for choice are what make Samsung such a big name. The introduction of the M series was meant for entry-level budget users getting into the Samsung ecosystem. The primary target of the series is South Asia, Africa, and emerging European markets. Samsung recently announced the Galaxy M33 5G which is meant to be a mid-range performer in the M lineup. The Phone is expected to launch in India on 2nd April. Here is a detailed take on what to expect and should it be a pick or pass for the budget users. Read Best Upcoming Phones in April 2022 in Bangladesh Key Specifications of Samsung Galaxy M33 5G Design and Build Quality Even though the phone isn’t released yet, the specifications and details about the device are already out. The M series phones have always sported an all-plastic design with a glass front. The M33 5G is also no different. The back of the device has a refractive matte finish. It helps to make the device look more premium. The device is on the heavier side with 198 g weight. Much of it is attributed to the 6000 mAh battery which is one of the highest in its segment. Read Motorola Edge 20 Fusion Review: Is it worth consideration? The usual port selection is all present here. The power button situated at the right will double as the fingerprint scanner. Unlike the mid-range M53 slated to launch around the same time, the M33 does retain the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Samsung claims the choice was made to favor the gaming experience in the device. There is a dedicated micro SDXC along with the dual sim setup on the left of the device. Samsung included a secondary noise cancellation mic on the top which would help to improve the call quality of the device. Overall, the Galaxy M33 5G feels much like its predecessors in terms of build quality and design. Read OPPO K10 5G Review with Price: What’s New? Display The display is somewhat one of the weak points of the Galaxy M33 5G. It can’t exactly be called a weak point thanks to the bizarre choices of display tech integration. Let's clarify. Samsung is a well-established panel maker with their Super AMOLED and AMOLED panels being the industry standards. However, Samsung went with a TFT panel for the M33 5G which in itself is an outdated display tech. What’s surprising is that Samsung also integrated a 120 Hz refresh rate on the TFT panel. Speaking of the quality of the display itself, it is average at best. Colors aren’t as bright and crisp as AMOLED or even IPS LCDs. There are also issues with color shifts and viewing angles. but the touch response of the panel is super-fast thanks to the 120 Hz refresh rate. Samsung could have included an IPS LCD but TFT is what the users will be getting. Read Vivo iQOO Z6 Review: The Budget Vivo for Camera Enthusiasts Camera The M series phones have always been big on the camera, at least compared to their price point. Unlike others in this price bracket, Samsung has included a quad-camera setup and the lens specs are pretty impressive. The main lens here is a 50 MP one with an f/1.8 aperture. There is also a 5 MP ultrawide shooter along with 2 MP macro and depth sensors. The front features an 8 MP selfie shooter as well. Speaking of the performance of the camera, the main lens and the wide-angle lens definitely shines. The colors and details look amazing in direct sunlight and bright conditions. However, there is noticeable noise and grains in indoor lighting. The subject also tends to become a bit soft with reduced edge detection. Users will get massive improvements in videography. The Galaxy M33 will support up to 4K at 30 fps up from the 1080P on the previous gen. Overall, the camera setup seems to be on par if not better considering the price. Read Xiaomi POCO X4 Pro Review: Know the Pros and Cons Processor and Performance Whether Samsung will be using an Exynos or MediaTek for the Galaxy M33 5G is not known exactly for sure. However, rumors suggest that the device may come with Exynos 1280 chipset based on a 5 Nm architecture. The octa-core Exynos processor is known to be power efficient and performance-oriented. As a result, Samsung is already branding the device as an entry-level gaming phone. The device is well equipped to handle daily tasks like browsing the web or social media. Users will be able to play graphic-intensive games at medium settings without compromising on performance. However, the device gets heated quite easily but there aren’t any thermal throttling issues. The device will also come with Android 12 on top of the One UI 4.1 OS. Read Samsung Galaxy M53 5G: Should you wait for it? Battery and Charge Time As mentioned before, the battery is easily one of the strongest selling points of the device. Without compromising much on the thickness and form factor, Samsung has been able to fit in a 6000 mAh battery on a device with an efficient processor. Users can expect to get around 8 to 10 hours of continued usage and at least 6 hours of heavy gaming. There is also a 25W fast charger included in the box. Price of Samsung Galaxy M33 5G in Bangladesh The Samsung Galaxy M33 5G has not yet been officially launched in Bangladesh. The speculative price in the Indian market puts a 17,999 Rs tag on the device which roughly translates to 20,382 BDT ( 1 INR = 1.13 BDT ). However, the price might differ depending on supply, tax, and company sales policies. Verdict The Samsung Galaxy M33 5G doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Rather it is another incremental update in the entry-level segment. The camera and the battery are the strongest suit of the device and may well be its sales determinant. But the display is where the device falls short. In hindsight, the device will be perfect for those looking for a budget gaming phone with long reliability.
