These days Samsung is more focusing on performance than anything else and that can be seen in newly launched Galaxy F62. The phone is powered by good old Exynos 9825 (7 nm) which was used on Galaxy S10 series and now, that same chip is here on a budget smartphone. So let’s see, it is worth to spend 24k on a two-year-old chipset or not?
Galaxy F62 Price in India
Samsung Galaxy F62 price in India starts from Rs 24,999 for 6GB of Ram and 128GB storage while 8GB and 128GB variant is priced at Rs 25,999. The phone will be available on Flipkart from February 22, 2020, at noon. Samsung has launched three colours which include Laser Green, Laser Gray, Laser Blue.
Is it Worth Buying Samsung Galaxy F62?
Yes, Galaxy F62 is worth buying because the phone is powered by powerful Exynos 9825 chipset which can handle almost everything, it also has good camera setup and massive 7,000 mAHh battery but the phone doesn’t have 5G. So, if you want 5G phone then Galaxy F62 is not worth buying but if you’re okay which 4G then this is worth buying at 24k.

There is no doubt about display quality as Samsung make the best display panels but this is a 60Hz screen and this is where I feel, Samsung should have gone with a 90Hz refresh rate but hey, this is Samsung, so can’t expect everything.
The Galaxy F62 is powered by Exynos 9825 (7 nm) but still, it’s a powerful processor. So if you love to plays games then don’t look for anything else, Galaxy F62 could be the best phone for you. By the way, this chipset is close to Snapdragon 855 but not as powerful as Snapdragon 855.
Samsung has used the same camera setup as Galaxy M51 but Samsung did improve the camera quality. Overall, don’t buy Galaxy M51 now, you can just go with Galaxy F62.
When it’s come to the battery, I don’t think, any other phone can compete with Galaxy F62 expect Galaxy M51. It has massive 7,000 mAh battery with 25W fast charging support. The phone will last for almost two days.
That was the main highlight of Galaxy F62, I will review this phone very soon, so wait for a full review before you order one. Also, I curious to know, what will be nest phone under Galaxy F Series? what you think?
Conclusion – Galaxy F62
As I said, Galaxy F62 has almost everything that you can think of except 5G. Also, there is no doubt that 2021 is all about 5G and not having 5G phone will be bummer as you won’t able to use 5G network on 4G smartphone.
Here you have to decide, whether you want powerful 4G smartphone or decent 5G smartphone?
