Android version and market relevance

Announcement! We need more new products from Samsung. This time these guys announced Samsung Galaxy Wide 5. This is a 5G-smartphone on Android 11 in 2021.

More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, there are no updates for this model the manufacturer does not release, so feel free to search for other smartphones in 2021 and choose from them. And, secondly, Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). And thirdly, Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 it works in the fifth generation (5G) networks, so you can work on a smartphone in the mobile Internet with the same high speed as at home on a Wi-Fi connection (up to 100 Mb/s). Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 received IPS LCD-screen measuring 6.6 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying. In addition to the screen size, it is also worth talking about the image refresh rate. 90 Hz is 90 updates per second of each pixel on the screen. Smartphones with a display refresh rate of 90 Hz were first announced in the premium segments (for example, the Google Pixel 4 model with a price of about $800). And later, similar characteristics appeared in smartphones in the middle price segment (for example, models from Xiaomi).

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small drop notch above the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 is 9 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 5 000 mAh, that just mega-cool for such a device. The operating time on one battery charge will exceed all your expectations.

Main camera and selfie camera

The most important characteristics of Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 cameras: main camera received 64 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor, front camera got 8 MP Wide. See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality. And the most interesting thing is that the main camera on the back of the body has several lenses (triple camera smartphones). That can do 2x zoom without losing quality. And with the help of at least two lenses, you can shoot portraits with the bokeh effect, this is when the background is blurred and the photo appears like depth. In this model, the selfie camera is on the front and you can see it. In 2019, smartphones were announced with a front camera, which is located inside the body and is not visible. When you need to take a photo, the front camera slides up from the body. You take your selfie, the photo is saved and then the camera goes down into the body. All smartphones with pop-up front camera from different producers at different prices are collected in the catalog. If you are interested in such models, we advise you to first watch video reviews about them, and then make a choice and buy.

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 Wide 5 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G (7 nm). As for RAM, the memory module is used here 6 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC up to 1000 GB. You are only available 128 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Samsung Galaxy Wide 5: buy or not to buy?

Price Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 at the start of sales was $385. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Middle class smartphones from $300 to $400” and got a very powerful processor, a huge touch screen, and the front camera is not too cool with a super cool main camera, and you can make very high quality and creative photos with it.

If you want to buy Samsung Galaxy Wide 5, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
