MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

Released in November 2022, Samsung Galaxy A04e might be the most affordable Samsung smartphone you can buy in 2023. It lacks a fingerprint scanner, so you will have to do without that. If that feature is important to you, though, you will have to look to one of the numerous Chinese phone brands in the same price segment. They often provide more features for the same price, when compared to Samsung. Lastly, it charges at a measly 5W speed. For the price, you will find competing phones that have at least 10W charging.


Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is a recommendation that we make based on our evaluation the specs of the device. It is a general guide designed to help you understand how much value a smartphone offers for its price. It is not a stamp of quality assessment or an endorsement of the device or of the manufacturers.
