Overview Samsung Galaxy A11
Android version and market relevance
In the short description of the new smartphone Samsung Galaxy A11 we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Samsung in March 2020. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Samsung Galaxy A11 works on Android 10 and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2020.
Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Samsung Galaxy A11 is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. The manufacturer could add support for fifth-generation networks to this smartphone, but did not. Perhaps not to raise the price, or for other reasons. If for you the presence of support for 5G networks in a new smartphone is very important, then we recommend that you go to this page in the catalog — all 5G smartphones on Android.
Screen, body and battery
By the size of the Samsung Galaxy A11 screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is PLS TFT-screen with diagonal 6.4″ and with a punch-like notch for selfie camera and sensors.
Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Samsung Galaxy A11 the case turned out very thick — 8 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 4 000 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.
Main camera and selfie camera
The main camera has several modules (triple camera smartphones): 13 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Samsung Galaxy A11 has one module: 8 MP with a regular lens. And this, of course, is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.
Processor and Internal Memory
The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.
So, in Samsung Galaxy A11 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 450. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 2 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 3 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.
You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 32/64 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.
Price for Samsung Galaxy A11: buy or not to buy?
If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is just the real phablet! You can buy! If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is not the model you need to buy.
Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Samsung Galaxy A11 will begin in May 2020 at a price of $130. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.
We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
