The Samsung Galaxy A14 comes at a budget price with a plastic body and a 6.6-inch LCD screen without curved edges. It has a 1080p resolution and supports a 90Hz refresh rate for smoother scrolling. The phone runs on Android and is powered by a D700 processor with 4GB of RAM, providing fair performance. Its battery life is reasonable, lasting up to about 9 hours on a charge. The Galaxy A14 includes a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB-C port but lacks wireless charging. Camera capabilities are modest with a 50MP main camera and a 13MP selfie camera; photography and video performance are rated as poor. Despite its shortcomings, it's equipped with a 5G connection, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and NFC. The phone does not offer wireless charging or a high rating for dust and water resistance. If you're seeking a budget-friendly device with decent battery life, a large screen, and basic camera functions, the Galaxy A14 is a solid option; however, if camera quality or top-notch performance is a priority, you might need to look at more expensive alternatives.

WIRED

Julian Chokkattu | January 2023
"It's near-impossible to not marvel at the value of the Galaxy A14. It does almost everything so well for so little, and that's precisely what we should be asking more of from our gadgets. Good performance. Nice screen. Two-day battery life. Solid camera. Includes 64 GB of storage and a microSD card slot, plus a headphone jack and NFC for contactless payments."
