Galaxy A22 now available in India, but you should buy something else instead


Last updated: June 30th, 2021 at 11:29 UTC+01:00

Samsung seems to have quietly put the Galaxy A22 on sale in the Indian market. It was only a few days ago when pricing for the phone had leaked online, and Samsung India is now selling the device on its official website without making any official announcement. The Galaxy A22 is priced at INR 18,499 (roughly $250) in the country, is available in black and mint, and comes in a single variant that has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

If you glance at the Galaxy A22’s spec sheet, you will soon realize that no variant of the phone is worth purchasing, not when you consider you can buy the Galaxy M32 instead. The Galaxy A22 features a 6.4-inch HD+ 90Hz Super AMOLED display, octa-core MediaTek Helio G80 processor, a 48MP optically stabilized main rear camera accompanied by 8MP, 2MP, and 2MP ultra-wide, depth, and macro sensors, a 13MP selfie camera, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 15W fast charging. Out of the box, it runs Android 11 with One UI 3.1 Core.

The only thing the Galaxy A22 has going for it compared to the Galaxy M32 is the OIS-equipped main camera. The M32, however, gets you a bigger battery (6,000 mAh) with faster charging (25W), a higher-resolution main camera (64MP vs 48MP), a 20MP selfie camera, a higher-resolution display (Full HD+ vs HD+), and the non-Core version of One UI 3.1, all for a lower price.

The 6+128GB Galaxy M32 will cost you INR 16,999 (roughly $230), and if you can make do with lower memory and storage, you can get the 4+64GB variant for a cool INR 14,999 (roughly $200). For more details, you can check out our Galaxy M32 review. And if you really love making bad decisions, well, then the Galaxy A22 can be purchased from Samsung India’s website at the link below (and likely at your nearest local retail store).
