A new mid range smartphone from samsung, whose highlight feature is its processing power, as samsung has used the same chip from the galaxy note, 10 and note 10 plus in this one. Along with this, you also get a massive 7 000 milliamp hour battery, a decent set of cameras and a rich and vivid amoled display. Now this phone also happens to have a lot in common with samsung’s own galaxy m51 as we’ll find out in the review. But the big question is: has samsung done enough for the f62 to stand out in this sub 25. 000 rupee price segment? Well: i’m. Ryden. You’Re watching gadget 360 – and this is my review of the samsung galaxy f62 now before we go ahead, don’t forget to subscribe, if you haven’t, and also hit that bell icon so you’re the first to know. Whenever we have a new video Music first up, let’s get the pricing out of the way the galaxy f62 is available in two ram variants in india, 6 gigs and 8 gigs. While the internal storage is the same for both variants, at 128, gb prices start at 24, 000 rupees and goes up to 26 000.. In terms of looks, the galaxy f62 looks quite unique for a samsung phone. The laser blue color that i have gradually transitions to silver towards the bottom, and you also can get this in a black or a green shade. The frame construction is all plastic which does feel sturdy, but the back did pick up.
Scuff marks pretty easily just within the first few hours of using it. There’S no case in the box either, which is something samsung should have provided now, while the appearance is new, the dimensions are actually identical to those of the galaxy m51. With the same thickness of 9.5 millimeters. However, it is heavier than the galaxy m51 at around 218 grams. At the front, the display specifications are more or less identical to those of the galaxy m51 once again, and you can see the specifications on the screen now. The display in itself offers excellent, brightness and very good color saturation thanks to the good viewing angles. The samsung galaxy f62 is also great for media consumption. Videos look very good and the phone can stream hdr videos too off youtube. Having said that, i am a little bit disappointed that it doesn’t have a 90 hertz refresh rate or even an in display fingerprint sensor. Two features that you can easily find in smartphones that are priced a lot lower. Now, while i do wish samsung had given us an in display fingerprint sensor, the capacitive one works just fine in my experience coming down to the specifications, as i mentioned earlier, the highlight of the samsung galaxy f62 is the exynos 9825 soc. It is a 4g only phone, but this shouldn’t really deter you from considering it. Since 5g is not yet a reality. In india, the galaxy f62 runs. The company’s latest android skin called one ui 3.
1, which is based on android 11. it’s, pretty much the same experience you’d get with any other samsung phone release in the past year, or so with some minor changes to the interface. Now there are a mix of samsung and google apps pre loaded along with others such as netflix. The interface is clean and relatively free from unwanted spammy notifications, but ads seem to be present in the weather and game launcher apps. Just like we saw in the galaxy s 21 ultra these aren’t too intrusive, but advertising in stock apps is definitely not something we should have to live with, especially from a mid range phone. Now, when it comes to performance, the galaxy f62 has offered a pretty smooth experience. Overall, one ui looks slick, switching between apps is snappy, and the phone doesn’t heat up much with regular use games run just fine too titles such as csr racing 2 and call of duty mobile, look great and run very well now. Playing taxiing 3d games does cause the back of this phone to get quite warm, but i never really noticed any unbearable levels of heat now, just like the galaxy m51, the samsung galaxy f62 also has a 7 000 milliamp hour battery, which offers incredible battery life. It comes with a usb type c, 25 watt fast charger in the box. The phone easily lasted me close to two full days with heavy usage, which was quite impressive. The galaxy f62 also ran for a solid 25 hours in our hd video loop test, even with 25 watt charging, it takes around 2 hours to fully charge this phone, which doesn’t sound, particularly quick, but even an incomplete charge will go a long way now.
The cameras on the galaxy f62 have been borrowed from the galaxy m51 as well. At the back, we have a quad camera setup with a 64 megapixel primary sensor, leading the back. You also get a 12 megapixel ultra wide and two 5 megapixel cameras for depth. Sensing and macro shots respectively in the front there’s a 32 megapixel selfie camera Music. Now, during the day, the main and ultra wide angle, cameras on the galaxy f62 capture, good quality images photos captured with both these cameras have very similar color tones and hdr balances. The exposures very well now you can expect minor barrel distortion from the ultra wide angle, camera, but it’s not too severe details in low light photos aren’t the best but night mode, does help improve this. A bit Music, close ups, shot during the day have very good detail with good natural background blur. Even shots taken indoors at night are generally clean with good colors. However, they do lack good detail. The micro camera does a surprisingly good job during the day, but it’s best avoided in situations without adequate light. Portrait mode works well too, and you do get various background filters to play with videos shot at 4k with the primary and ultra wide angle. Camera are stabilized and the image quality is good. You can switch between the main and ultra wide angle. Camera, while recording too enabling super steady mode, provides the best stabilization, but at a slight cost of image quality since it uses the ultra red camera to record videos shot in low light are generally a bit grainy and details are weak.
What’S surprising is that there isn’t any 60fps video recording option at any of these resolutions for the front or the rear cameras. The front camera captures good, looking selfies under natural light. It can even shoot 4k videos which look decent, but these aren’t, stabilized selfies, shot under artificial light were quite disappointing, as most of them had unnatural skin tones. Overall, i feel all the cameras on the galaxy f62 do an above average job when you’re shooting in daylight. However, low light performance could have been better, especially if you’re shooting video the launch of the samsung galaxy f62 has essentially killed off much of the appeal that the galaxy m51 has had so far. In my opinion, for about 2000 rupees more for either variant, the galaxy f62 offers a much faster soc and android 11, plus exactly the same features that are offered in the galaxy m51. Now, while the galaxy f62 performs well overall battery life is an area where it really excels. If you want a phone that can easily last for more than a day, even with very rigorous usage, you should definitely consider it now when it comes to alternatives. There’S no shortage of good smartphones under 25000 rupees mediatek’s, dimensi 5g socs are definitely worth keeping an eye on and so are qualcomm’s mid range 5g chipsets, the real me x75g mi 10i and the oneplus not are just some of the noteworthy offerings that you can find In this segment now keep in mind that these phones might not offer the same marathon battery life as the galaxy f62, but they do offer other useful features such as 5g for whenever it’s relevant in india.
You also get faster charging in display fingerprint sensors and, of course, higher refresh rate displays so that’s been it for my review of the samsung galaxy f62.
