About this comparison

Introduction With technology advancing at an ever-increasing pace, it’s no surprise that the market for smartphones is consistently growing and developing. There are now two distinct categories of phones available – high-end and mid-range. In this article, we will look at two new phones from Samsung, the Galaxy A54 5G and the Galaxy S22, both of which are scheduled for release in 2021/2022. We will discuss their design and materials, hardware, cameras, connectivity and battery.

Design & Materials The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1080x2340 FHD+ resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. It has a glass and plastic build and an 82.4% usable surface.

Camera Both phones have a triple camera setup. The A54 5G has a standard camera that uses the Sony IMX766 sensor with 50.0MPx and f/1.8 aperture, a wide-angle lens that uses the Samsung S5K3L6 sensor with 13.0MPx and f/2.2 aperture and a macro lens with 5.0MPx and f/2.4 aperture. For selfies, it has a Sony IMX616 sensor with 32.0MPx and f/2.0 aperture. It also has optical stabilization (OIS) and can record 4K video. The S22 also has a triple camera setup. Its standard camera uses the Samsung GN5 sensor with 50.0MPx and f/1.8 aperture, its wide-angle lens uses the Sony IMX713 sensor with 12.0MPx and f/2.2 aperture and its telephoto lens uses the Sony IMX772 sensor with 12.0MPx and f/2.4 aperture.
