Design 

The appearance of Galaxy A11 pleases with a laconic design that is already classic for budget models. The body is made of quality plastic and has rounded edges. Handling the phone is pleasant and easy. 

The bezels around the screen are wide enough, especially at the bottom, which definitely does not make a bad impression. On the back, in the top left corner, is a vertical camera unit with flash. In the center is the fingerprint scanner. Traditionally, further down you'll also find the company logo. 

Galaxy A11 users can choose from four color options - black, white, red or sky blue. There's something for everyone. White and black for classic colour lovers, red for the more passionate types, and blue for all the youngsters. 

The dimensions of the Galaxy A11 are 161.4x76.3x8 mm at a weight of just 177 grams. 

Display 

The Galaxy A11's cute looks are also due to its large enough display. The diagonal of the latter is 6.4 inches. It is based on an IPS matrix. According to the Infinity-O principle, a front-facing camera is built into the top of the screen. The resolution of the display is 1560 x 720 pixels. 

The aspect ratio of the display ensures comfortable conditions for watching videos, playing games and interacting with other content. 

Performance 

The processor of the Galaxy A11 is unnamed, but we know about it that it runs with 8 cores and a clock speed of 1.2 GHZ. In all likelihood, a side-development chip has been embedded in the smartphone, however, which provides a sufficient level of performance. Performance of daily tasks will be a song. Additionally, the manufacturer has provided several memory parameters: 2 or 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. At the user's disposal is the possibility of memory expansion with microSD - up to 512 GB. Keep this in mind if you are a fan of accumulating photo and video material. 

Among the wireless interface you will find support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB, GPS. NFC contactless payment platform is absent. In terms of operating system, we find One UI based on Android 10. The fingerprint scanner works quickly and flawlessly. 

Cameras

Currently, even the inexpensive smartphones on the market come with multi-module cameras. Thus, the Galaxy A11 has received a triple unit that consists of a 13 MP main module (f/1.8), a 5 MP ultra-wide-angle lens (f/2.2) and a 2 MP camera for bokeh effect (f/2.4). In addition, the manufacturer has provided an LED flash. 

The ultrawide-angle module allows you to create photos with an angle of 77 or 115 degrees. Get ready to capture gorgeous panoramas! With the 2-megapixel camera, on the other hand, the user can adjust the degree of background blur to highlight the main subject of the photo and enhance the level of visual impact. 

Going to the single front-facing camera, we notice that compared to the previous generation, its resolution has increased quite a bit - from 5 MP to 8 MP (f/2.0). Of course, the photos with it are not of flagship phone quality, but they are worthy of the lower price range. The Galaxy A11 is an attractive proposition if cameras aren't your key priority.  It'll record video at 1080 pixels and at 30 frames per second. 

Autonomous operation 

The smartphone packs a 4000mAh battery - more than the one provided in its predecessor. Another advantage of the Galaxy A11 is the support of the company's fast charging Adaptive Fast Charging - 15 watts. With this battery, you can confidently use the smartphone for the whole day. Under light load, recharging will be necessary after two days. 

Conclusion 

With the Galaxy A11 in hand, you will have a modern representative of the budget class of phones. The device is built to classic standards, has rounded edges for comfort and enough battery to feel independent. The display is large enough to enjoy your favorite content, and the fast fingerprint scanner will keep it away from unwanted stares. 

This smartphone is yet another proof that Samsung knows how to read the needs of the market and its next creation will be popular. The Galaxy A11 is suitable for people of all ages.
