Samsung Galaxy A11 Review: A solid budget-friendly phone

The Samsung Galaxy A11 is a budget-friendly smartphone that offers a good overall experience. It has a large display, a triple rear camera system, and a long-lasting battery. However, it does make some sacrifices in terms of performance and build quality.


The Galaxy A11 has a 6.4-inch PLS TFT LCD display with a resolution of 1560x720 pixels. The display is bright and colorful, but it's not as sharp as some other phones in its price range. Viewing angles are also good.


The Galaxy A11 has a triple rear camera system with a 13MP main sensor, a 5MP ultrawide sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. The main sensor takes good photos in well-lit conditions, but it struggles in low light. The ultrawide sensor is useful for capturing landscape photos, but the image quality is not as good as the main sensor. The depth sensor is used to create bokeh effects in portrait photos.

The Galaxy A11 also has a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies. The front-facing camera takes decent photos in good light, but it's not very good in low light.


The Galaxy A11 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, which is a budget-friendly chipset. The phone comes with 2GB or 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage.

The Galaxy A11's performance is adequate for basic tasks such as browsing the web, checking email, and using social media apps. However, it can struggle with more demanding tasks such as gaming and video editing.

Battery life

The Galaxy A11 has a large 4,000mAh battery. The battery life is excellent, and most users should be able to get two days of use on a single charge.
