Samsung A22 Review – Specs and Price in Kenya

In today’s Tech review article, we will be reviewing the Samsung Galaxy A22, also known as Samsung A22. I will show you its features, strengths and weaknesses, the Samsung A22’s price in Kenya and whether you should consider buying this smartphone or not. Use the table of content below to navigate to a specific section of the article you would be interested in.

Please note, I am going to be reviewing the Samsung Galaxy A22, the 4G version which has LTE, not the 5G version. These two smartphones are entirely different and the 5G Samsung Galaxy A22 may or may not be sold in every country in the world. If you are interested in these phones, but they are not accessible in your region, I will leave a link to where you could get them at a good price.

What You Find In The Box

When you buy a Samsung Galaxy A22 and unbox it, you will find the following inside the box;

  • The Samsung A22 Smartphone.
  • A sim ejector tool for the smartphone.
  • A Samsung warranty card
  • Earphones
  • Samsung Galaxy A22 Manual Guide
  • A white USB type C cable
  • A 15w charger

External Feature

When you take the Samsung Galaxy A22 smartphone out of the box and its plastic wrapper, you will see the sleek phone, which to say the truth, Samsung did a good job designing and making it stand out. At the bottom, you will find the 3.5mm Earphone and audio Jack, Speakers and a mic. You will also be able to find a noise-cancelling mic which is located on the top part of the phone.

When you look on the left side of the phone, you find the A22’s Simcard tray. The phone accepts dual nano sim cards, meaning you can insert two Nano sim cards. If you are buying your Samsung A22 from Mkopa in Kenya, you will only get one that supports a single sim card.

The tray also has space for a Micro SD card you can use to enhance your phone’s storage. On the opposite side of the phone, there is a power button and the volume down and volume up buttons respectively. One cool feature of the phone is that its power button also acts as the fingerprint scanner.

Taking a Look At The Back.

The one thing standing out on the back side of the Samsung A22 is its 4 cameras. There is also a LED flashlight that can be used as a touch or to help you take photos where there is less light using the flash feature. I will tell you details about the Cameras in the Camera section.

The back is made from plastic, which to me is not good, because it means the back can easily get scratched and leave fingerprints all over the phone. But I can live with it because this is a low-budget phone, unlike its higher specs rivals like the Tecno Camon 19 Premier smartphone.

Taking a Look At The Front.

There is not much going on on the front, just the big 6.4-inch display, and the front selfie camera that can deliver 13MP pictures. There is also the front earpiece. The dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy A22 are 159.3mm by 73.6mm by 8.4mm.



The Samsung Galaxy A22 comes with a 6.4 Inch that has a resolution of 1600 by 720 display, which is also another downside for me as I expected a higher resolution for this kind of smartphone. The screen refresh rate is 90Hz with a super AMOLED display that supports HD+. The 90Hz refresh rate gives you a fast response from your screen in everything you do.


At the front, you get the 13MP camera which is pretty good but don’t expect it to give you very high-quality photos like other higher-end smartphones.

The back has 4 cameras which consist of a 48MP main lens, an 8MP ultrawide camera, a 2MP Macro else and finally a 2MP depth sensor lens. I can say that over the past few years, Samsung has really tried to up the camera game, especially on budget-friendly phones. These cameras enable the phone to zoom up to 10 times the distance.

Other added features include night Mode, paranoma, slow motion mode, Hyperlapse, Macro, pro mode and food mode. I will make an article soon showing you what these features mean and how they can help make your photos great. With a feature like night mode, be sure that your night photograph shots will be great.

Storage and Memory

RAM Memory

The Samsung A22 comes in two choices of RAM, you can either purchase one with 4GB of RAM or one with 6GB of RAM. Whichever you choose, I would recommend the 6GB of RAM option because this means it will be faster that the 4GB RAM.

ROM Memory

You get either the 64GB space or the 128GB space.


The Samsung A22 is powered by a MediaTek Helio G80 processor which means this device can run apps and high-end games way better. So if you have a low-end device, for example, Safaricom Lipa Mdogo Mdogo Neon Ray Pro, this Samsung A22 might just be the phone you need to upgrade to.

It also comes with a Mali GPU MC2 making it not only good for handling general phone activities but also for gaming. The operating system on the Samsung A22 is Android 11(One UI 3.1).

You can check Samsung Galaxy A22’s  Benchmark Scores by AnTuTu Benchmark Score to see how it performs on the benchmark. On Geekbench, it scored 359 on a single-core score, while hitting about 1356 on a multi-core score.


The Galaxy A22 comes with a 5000mAh battery which can last at least 17 hours with some minor tasks and some gaming. This battery is charged by the 15W charger that comes with it. The charging period for the Samsung A22 battery is about 2 hours. This is quite a lot of time especially if you don’t have time to wait.

Samsung A22 in Kenya

The Samsung A22 5G option can be bought in Kenya for Kes. 23,299/= on Jumia Kenya. This is a good price because jumia has an offer that has reduced the phone from Ksh. 30,000/=. In case you want to buy it from a retail shop, you can get it from between Ksh. 24,0000/= to Ksh. 26,000/=.

If you are not able to get the phone from Jumia at that price, you can also purchase it from Mkopa Smartphones, where you will pay a deposit of 5,999/=, and then daily deposits of Ksh. 85/= for 365 days.

Below is our affiliate link for the phone on jumia, using it to buy the phone will make me earn some commission, but remember, I only recommend genuine things for my fans, and jumia has a 6 months guarantee for all their electronic and smartphone products.
