Gadgetren – The Samsung Galaxy M14 5G is a device to look at when you need a mobile phone with specialized support to perform various activities.
Moreover, Samsung’s mid-range mobile phone comes at a relatively affordable price. In this case, we can even bring it home with money ranging from IDR 2,799,000 to IDR 3,299,000 depending on the memory variant.
However, if you’re still unsure about proposing on mobile, it never hurts to check the pros and cons first. The Galaxy M14 5G has a number of advantages that are worth considering.
Advantages of Samsung Galaxy M14 5G
1. Too big battery
With a price range of IDR 2-3 million, the Galaxy M14 5G tries to lure users with very large capacity batteries. Even bigger compared to most mobile phones in their class.
The Galaxy M14 5G has a battery capacity of 6,000 mAh which is quite large compared to mobile phones in general. A battery with a large capacity has indeed become one of the hallmarks of Samsung’s Galaxy M series.
With such a large capacity, we can technically use the Galaxy M14 5G for longer, regardless of the activity being performed without worrying that the mobile phone will run out of power in the middle of the activity.
Based on Samsung’s information on its product page, the Galaxy M14 5G’s 6,000mAh battery is claimed to last up to more than 25 hours of video playback or 155 hours of audio playback.
To accompany the jumbo capacity battery, Samsung also provides 25W fast charging support on the Galaxy M14 5G. This technology will definitely be very useful because it can make the filling process shorter.
2. Wide screen with smooth animation
In addition to the large capacity battery, the Galaxy M14 5G also comes with a very large screen size to use to enjoy various types of content. It is noted that the mobile phone has a PLS LCD screen that stretches up to 6.6 inches if measured from corner to corner diagonally.
Various kinds of content, be it images, text or videos, will definitely look clear on the Galaxy M14 5G. In addition, its display also uses Full HD + resolution (2408 x 1080 pixels) which can produce a sharper display.
The display used by the Galaxy M14 5G has also adopted support for a refresh rate of up to 90Hz. If the displayed content supports it, the mobile phone can produce a more fluid animation motion so that it feels smoother when moving.
3. Powered Runway with 5G network
The user experience offered by the Galaxy M14 5G will also be no less enjoyable than other devices in its class. The problem is that this mobile phone is equipped with an intermediate chipset made by Samsung called Exynos 1330.
The Exynos 1330 is an octa-core chipset based on the ARM Cortex-A78 and Cortex-A55 architectures with speeds up to 2.4GHz. Developed with 5nm manufacturing, this chipset also carries the ARM Mali-G68 MP2 for graphics processing needs.
With this chipset, the Galaxy M14 5G is definitely reliable enough to handle a variety of daily tasks, from social media surfing to gaming. In addition, the Exynos 1330 specifically allows this mobile phone to pack the 5G network, which is now starting to materialize.
For memory, the Galaxy M14 5G itself is available in three configurations that can be chosen according to money or needs. This includes 4GB of RAM paired with 64GB or 128GB of storage and a 6GB with 128GB variant.
4. Multiple high resolution camera
Following in the footsteps of today’s mid-range smartphones, the Galaxy M14 5G also features a primary camera configuration that is no less capable. The problem is that this device has adopted a multi-lens system consisting of a 50MP main sensor, 2MP macro and 2MP depth.
Technically, a high-resolution camera will be able to produce better quality images that won’t break easily when magnified many times or even printed at very large sizes.
The pixel-binning technology used by high-resolution cameras also allows the shooting process to be more sensitive to light. So the results can still be seen clearly even in slightly dim conditions.
5. Comprehensive features
As a mid-sized mobile phone, the Galaxy M14 5G is a pretty well-supported device. We can still find a variety of key features such as a fingerprint scanner sensor, an audio jack and a microSD card slot that supports a capacity of up to 1 TB.
Apart from this, there are also several additional features that can maximize the use of the Galaxy M14 5G which includes NFC (Near Field Communication). For example, this sensor can make it easier for us to check electronic money balances or make digital payments, which are increasingly used by many people.
The device also has support called Voice Focus. This feature allows phone calls and video conferencing in many third-party apps to have voice conversations that can be heard more clearly, making it suitable for those who often communicate by voice.
6. Guaranteed system update
No less interesting, the Galaxy M14 5G will also receive good update support. This South Korean company promises that the mobile phone will receive at least up to two generations of OS updates.
Also, we don’t have to worry if we plan to use the Galaxy M14 5G for a very long time. To provide a better user experience, Samsung also promises to carry out security maintenance for up to 4 years for this mobile phone.
Cons of the Samsung Galaxy M14 5G
1. Heavy body
Just like mobile phones with other large capacity batteries, the body of the Galaxy M14 5G is unfortunately also quite heavy. This device weighs around 206 grams with dimensions of (166.8 x 77.2 x 9.4) mm.
For those of us who like to use mobile phones for a long time, of course we have to consider the weight of the mobile phone. The problem is that we can quickly feel tired when operating the device, especially if we do it with only one hand.
This makes a lot of sense, considering the large capacity battery that is immersed in it. But of course it should be considered, especially for those who love light mobile phones.
2. Incomplete Sales Package
The sales package offered by the Galaxy M14 5G is also quite stingy. Besides not getting a 25W charging adapter in the box like most Samsung phones these days, we also won’t find a protective case when most other brands do.
So we have to spend extra money if we want to protect the body of the device, which incidentally also gets dirty easily due to fingerprints. On the side we need to buy a 25W charging adapter if we don’t already have one.
Fortunately, during the sales promotion period for the Galaxy M14 5G, Samsung is also offering a number of attractive bonuses that include discounts or cashback. There’s also a giveaway in the form of an original Samsung 25W travel adapter for those of us who are lucky.
