Samsung Galaxy M11 Review

In 2020, Samsung's Galaxy M series of budget smartphones was completely revamped. The most affordable model in it is the Galaxy M11. 

Design

Its design combines details typical for flagship, but also for inexpensive phones. For example, it is strange to see a front-facing camera in the screen and a wide bottom bezel at the same time. The body of the Galaxy M11 is made of plastic. The matte back hardly leaves fingerprint marks. This should be appreciated as a positive. 

On the market you will find the Galaxy M11 in three colors: black, sky blue and purple. 

Display 

Unlike most Samsung smartphones that come with AMOLED displays, the budget Galaxy M11 has received a 6.4-inch simple PLS screen. It's not even IPS. Its brightness is low and viewing angles are small. The resolution is not high. The most observant users may notice individual pixels on the edge of the icons. 

At the same time, the Galaxy M11 is comfortable to use. Its advantages manage to erase the slight criticality provoked by the cons. 

Cameras

The Galaxy M11 is equipped with a triple camera, but that shouldn't fool you. After all, in front of you is a budget-class device. The photos are of typical quality. The main camera is a 13-megapixel (f1.8), complemented by a 2-megapixel module and another 5-megapixel one. The front camera is 8 MP and is not equipped with autofocus.

About the main camera, it can be said that in the presence of enough light, the photos are obtained quality. Be sure to use the focus settings. Otherwise, you run the risk of not being delighted with the photos you take. 

The ultrawide subject in the Galaxy M11 plays a purely cosmetic role. There's a lot to be desired with it. 

As for portrait mode, it's important to manually adjust the degree of background blur and properly focus the camera. 

Video shooting with the Galaxy M11 is at maximum Full HD, but stabilization is lacking. The front camera, which is built into the screen, doesn't have impressive results. However, it is good for quick selfies and video chats. 

Performance 

At the heart of the Galaxy M11 is the Snapdragon 450, consisting of 8 cores. The capabilities of the platform are as follows: basic apps like messengers and arcade games will run without a problem. Any heavy games are desirable to run at minimum graphics settings. 

This smartphone works with 2 SIM cards and has a separate memory card slot. In the market, you will find a 3 GB RAM modification and 32 GB internal memory, the latter can be increased using a microSD card up to 512 GB.

One of the key merits of the model is the support of contactless payments. 

Autonomous operation 

The battery of the Galaxy M11 has a capacity of 5000 mAh. Samsung has provided 15W fast charging technology. A state-of-the-art USB Type-C is used for recharging. With the help of the fast charger, you can restore 100% battery charge in an hour and a half. In continuous video mode, you can count on 12 hours before the charge resets. 

Conclusion

The Galaxy M11 is an ambiguous device. On the one hand, it offers a great battery and NFC chip support, but on the other, the display isn't cutting edge and the camera is basic.
