Samsung Galaxy A14 might have gone unnoticed. Here I am bringing another awesomeness from Samsung’s Arsenal to your screen. Here is everything you missed about the Samsung Galaxy A14.

Samsung Galaxy A14

We can’t have an A14 without 13, 12 and the list goes on. Samsung A14 is not so different from its predecessor. Samsung A13 has warmed the heart of Samsung lovers but there’s a new king in town.’

The similarities between both phones are in their camera type and battery capacity. Not so much changed in those aspects.

With not much difference, there are still certain specifications about the A14 that would make you take your purses out and change your phones.

Everything Special About Samsung Galaxy A14

1. Display(Screen Resolution)

A14 has a slightly larger screen than the A13. It moved from 720p to 1080p resolution. It is a 6.6-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate.

A13 is LCD(Liquid Crystal Displays) while Samsung A14 is AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes).

LCDs use a backlight to illuminate pixels, while AMOLED displays have self-emissive pixels that individually emit light.

AMOLED displays mostly offer better image quality with vibrant colours and true blacks, but they can be more expensive to produce.

The Display also has a good contrast. The 90Hz Refresh rate makes swiping easier plus sharper movement than you would get normally.

The speed would reduce to 60Hz when your phone is inactive. It is just to manage power. The Brightness is at a maximum of 520 nits. It would not go higher even in bright places.

2. Build

Samsung A14 is made of plastic. The texture of the phone at the back is Vinyl. Rubbing your hands at the back of the phone would be therapeutic.

The phone also has a very good grip with a slightly rounded frame. Its shape is also fitting for any hand size. It is not too small to hold and not too big that you can’t handle.

3. Camera

This phone has four cameras.

  1. The front Camera
  2. Main Camera
  3. Depth Camera
  4. Macro Camera

They all serve different functions. The front camera is at the front of your phone, popularly known as the selfie camera. You use it to take self-portraits and video calls.

Front cameras usually have lower resolution and fewer features compared to rear (main) cameras, but they are optimized for capturing subjects at arm’s length or close-up.

A14’s front camera is 13 megapixels compared to the 5 megapixels of A13’s. The details, sharpness, and subject detection are very good.

The main camera is usually used for photography and video recording. They have a better range and resolution than the front camera with options such as portraits, landscapes and low-light situations.

Samsung A14 is 50 megapixel. It takes good photos with excellent contrast and an okay saturation with just a bit of noise.

The Blurred background is good but gives sub-par close-up pictures with muted colours.

4. Macro Camera plus Depth Sensor

The Macro camera optimizes close-up shots with little to zero distortion and efficient detail. They have a short focusing distance and allow you to sharp pictures of objects like; inscets, flowers and textures.

In Samsung A14, it has a 2-megapixel macro camera. This gives close-up pictures good contrast, saturated colours and a dynamic range.

The depth sensor or time-of-flight (ToF) camera, is designed to capture depth information in addition to the regular image.

Depth sensors are used useful for applications like portrait mode, where the camera can separate the subject from the background. This helps to create a depth effect (blurred background or bokeh).

5. Power Button + Finger Print

Samsung has combined the function of the power button and the fingerprint access in one button. Now you can easily open your phone by just placing your hands on the power button.

This function eases the security process of your phone and also gives the back of your phone a better look. Your finger doesn’t have to go to the back or place your thumb on your screen.

6. Sound Quality

The phone has an okay sound quality. It is also loud enough for you to enjoy your music without a headset or earpiece.

7. Other Accessories

There are many more important functions in the Samsung Galaxy A14. Some of these include the charging speed. The bad part of the phone is that it doesn’t come with an adapter.

You can use an external charger. With a 25-watt Samsung Charger, You should be able to charge from 0-30 per cent in 30 minutes.

Don’t fret about that fact. The phone has a good battery. It has the same 5000 milliamp battery capacity as Samsung A13. It can last up to 130 hours.

These are all the special specs of the Samsung A14. It’s worthy of being a contender among wanted phones with such an affordable price. This brings us to the next part.
