The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
That Galaxy A11 32 GB looks really small.Indeed, with its 6.4 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Even less good for watching a movie.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.

We found out that this Galaxy A11 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.The 4000 mAh battery is within the average.It will not be necessary to recharge during the day.
In addition, Samsung has added a quick recharge option to this model.In a few minutes, you have the battery almost back up to speed.
The right model for multimedia use?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also simply listen to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
With a low reading comfort, the Galaxy A11 32 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.It’s hard to watch a video.And its screen resolution is low.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
Samsung sought to improve the audio experience.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The sound result is of a good level.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Samsung’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Games are performance consuming.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
Our tests put this Galaxy A11 32 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.Its Qualcomm SM4250 Snapdragon 450 (11 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.It’s 32 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.In fact, for some passionate users, Samsung has provided an extra space to add more.
Apart from playing for several hours, the battery is quite well dimensioned.This model is in the middle of the category.The power is 4000 mAH, well enough for the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Concerning audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Samsung is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
As usual, Samsung did it right, with the sensor part integrated on the Android system.This gives you 3 lenses installed.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Galaxy A11 32 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.An image resolution of 13 Mp which will give a mediocre result.Regarding selfies, the technology onboard is equivalent to what you find elsewhere.This will allow you to retouch your photos.The sensor of this Galaxy A11 32 GB is of good quality and will facilitate photo retouching.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 32 GB.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
Finally, the Galaxy A11 32 GB…
The design of this Galaxy A11 32 GB is well done and corresponds to consumer expectations.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.In conclusion, it is a good product.
