When it comes to keeping up with the strike rate, only Samsung can beat Suryakumar Yadav. The brand is known for launching a new smartphone almost every week (on average), and today, the South Korean smartphone mogul launched a new smartphone in their F-Series smartphones, the Galaxy F54.
The newly launched device is branded as revolutionary as it sports a 16.95 cm sAMOLED+ display with 120Hz refresh rate, triple rear camera with 108 MP primary lens and 32 MP front camera, and 6000 mAh battery with 25W fast charging. On paper, the Galaxy F54 looks promising, but is it worth spending your hard-earned money on it?
Design and Display
Design-wise, the Galaxy F54 has nothing new to offer; even a mere glimpse of it and you will recognise it’s a Samsung device. On the front, it sports a punch-hole camera design with a 6.7-inch sAMOLED+ display that offers a 120Hz refresh rate. While on the rear, the Galaxy F54 has a triple camera setup with a polycarbonate back.
The Galaxy F54 features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the right side, along with volume up and down keys. The fingerprint sensor of the smartphone is quite outdated and works 7 out of 10 times. The device has a SIM tray on the left side, a speaker on the lower side and a microphone on the top.
In terms of display, the Galaxy F54 has one of the best displays I’ve ever come across in the mid-range segment of smartphones. If you’re someone who prefers binge-watching shows, movies or anything else for that matter, then Galaxy F54 is a perfect companion for you. It consumes less power and provides a more vivid picture quality.
The triple camera setup of the Galaxy F54 is backed by a “segment-leading” 108-MP camera with OIS, an 8-MP ultrawide shooter, and a 2-MP macro cam. While on the front, it sports a 32-MP selfie camera in a punch-hole design. The cameras of the Galaxy F54 offer features like Nightography, Astrolapse, Single Take, and Fun Mode.
The images clicked by the 108-MP primary camera show punchy colours that might not suit everyone’s taste and will take a little time to make you fall for it. The same applies to the selfie camera, too, but when it comes to video output, it offers brilliant footage with extra stabilisation; of course, you’ll have to record at 1080/30p for better results.
The Galaxy F54 is powered by an Exynos 1380 chipset with Android 13 and One UI 5.1, which means it will eventually receive upgrades up to Android 17 and making it the first F-branded device to receive Samsung’s four-year OS upgrade policy. The device sports a power-hungry display, and that’s the reason it gets hot often.
However, you don’t have to worry about it much as it is backed by a healthy 8GB of RAM/256GB Storage and lets you move through the day-to-day tasks freely. The Exynos 1380 chipset can handle graphics-intensive gaming and fluctuation of 4G to 5G and vice versa with an occasional stutter. So you can be worry-free about gaming and network issues.
The Galaxy F54 device is loaded with a magnificent 6000 mAh battery that easily helps you to survive two days, and when used extensively, it can run over 24 hours. The phone supports fast charging with a 25W wired charger (sold separately, of course) and takes about 70 minutes to charge fully.
The F-branded Samsung smartphones are mostly exclusive to India, where they go on sale through retail partner Flipkart. The smartphone is available for sale, and you can Pre-reserve it at ₹ 999* from 3-PM afterwards. The smartphone is priced at 29,999* for the 8GB/256GB variant and is available in two colours – Meteor Blue and Stardust Silver.
The Galaxy F54 shines with a delightful blend of affordability and high-end allure, but it seems like an upgraded version of the Galaxy A54 (launched on March 23). Yet, in the age-old dance of commerce, one must remember the undeniable truth: the bounty reaped shall match the coins sown. So, if you’re looking for a device with a great display, battery backup, and camera sensors, then Galaxy F54 is the one for you.
