The Samsung Galaxy A 2022 is Samsung’s take on giving users a flagship smartphone experience at a more affordable price. But how exactly are they planning on doing that? Well, here are six ways the new Galaxy A33, Galaxy A53, and Galaxy A73 can give you a flagship experience.
1. Single Take
Thinking about what the best camera mode to take photos in is so not a flagship experience. That’s why Samsung is taking the thinking out of capturing moments, and distilling the point and shoot nature to a pure point and shoot experience with Single Take.
In Single Take, just hit the shutter button with your camera pointed at the moment you want to capture, and the smartphone will take care of the rest. It will take a collection of photos and videos and boomerangs and a bunch of other fun stuff at the touch of the shutter so you have a myriad of moments to share with your friends or on social media.
2. Link to Windows
Seamlessly linking your smartphone to your Windows PC is also something that was previously only available on a high-end flagship smartphone. But now, you have access to Link to Windows on the Galaxy A 2022 as well.
With this feature, you’re able to have an instant connection to your Windows PC if you’re both on the same network. What’s more, users will also be able to answer phone calls and reply to texts right on your PC as well.
But, probably the most useful feature for people, especially those who take a lot of photos and videos, is the fact that you can seamlessly transfer files from your phone to your Windows PC by simply dragging and dropping. No faffing about with cables or selecting USB modes.
3. App Continuity
This ability to seamlessly work across devices also extends to App Continuity. On the Galaxy A 2022 smartphones, you can quickly switch between your smartphone and Samsung tablet with this feature.
Let’s say you’re jotting down a couple of notes in the Samsung Notes app, but now you want a bigger screen. All you have to do is fire up your Samsung tablet, hit the recents key and you’ll find your Notes app ready to seamlessly hand off to your tablet. That way you can pick up where you left off without missing a beat.
4. Buds Auto Switching
Speaking of instantaneous switching, the Galaxy A 2022 also supports Buds Auto Switching. This is a feature that allows users to seamlessly switch between Galaxy devices when paired with a compatible Galaxy Buds device.
For example, if you’re watching a video on your tablet, but a call comes in on your smartphone, the Buds will automatically switch to your smartphone so you can answer the call. Then, after the call has ended, it will automatically switch back to your tablet so you can pick up where you left off.
5. Bixby Routine
Asking your smartphone’s virtual assistant to do one task at a time is so last gen. With the Galaxy A 2022 and Bixby Routine, you can initiate a whole string of actions with a single command. What’s more, the feature will be able to perform these actions based on your routine with If This Then That logic.
By running in the background, Bixby Routine studies your pattern and preferences to automatically adjust settings, control apps, optimise the battery and so much more. For example, if you accidentally fell asleep while binging shows on Netflix, the feature will shut the app down so that your battery doesn’t go to waste.
6. Samsung Pay
Probably one of the most useful features in Samsung’s ecosystem, and you can have access to it on the Galaxy A 2022 smartphones too. With Samsung Pay, you can pay directly from your credit or debit card using your smartphone.
Simply add the card into your device’s Samsung Pay app, and pay at merchants as you would. This also allows you to consolidate all your cards and earn points, and get special promos all on your smartphone.
Transitions are also require authentication by fingerprint or PIN number, which adds a layer of security.
