On paper, the Samsung Galaxy F62 is a winning combination – using powerful specifications, with a massive battery and a flagship processor in mid-range pricing. However, our review reveals overwhelming findings that make it a difficult phone to recommend.
Samsung Galaxy F62 Review: Everything you should know
Uninvited, the F62 is considered an alternative to last year’s acclaimed Samsung Galaxy M51, which remains our battery life champion to date. The F62 slightly tweaks that formula with a “flagship” chipset and changes allegiance from Amazon to Flipkart.
While the mid-rangers in the M series were not particularly vulnerable, we expected more from the extensive marketing around Samsung’s Exynos 9825. The Samsung Galaxy F62 is powered by the same chipset as the Galaxy Note 10, which was Samsung’s top flagship for 2019.
It is an octa-core platform, built on a 7nm manufacturing process with custom mongoose cores. So while it technically makes it a staple, it needs to be noted that even in its glory days, it was not particularly powerful – to offer mediocre battery life, along with heavy games. Was struggling
Unfortunately, it is the same with the Samsung Galaxy F62. In day-to-day use, it’s fine and doesn’t break a sweat these days (like most phones), but heavy tasks like gaming have little stability and trepidation.
Worse was the battery back up. With a pack that is near twice the same as many other phones, the F62’s battery life is above average. The M51 can easily last a full two days when used in moderation, while the F62 can be killed in a day.
This is not bad by any means, but at 7,000mAh what one would expect. It also means using very heavy and bulky phones without battery life to justify battery life. The Samsung Galaxy F62 is not a terrible phone.
The display is great, the cameras are the best, and Samsung’s service range is very solid. The point is, the Galaxy M51 is really bad without anything, justifying its (literally and figuratively) weight on the pocket.
Unless you have a particular connection to Flipkart, the M51 is a better buy for most users. And of course, there are also options like Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, Realme X7, and Mi 10i, if you are not brand conscious.

Samsung Galaxy F62 Display Review:
The Samsung Galaxy F62 has a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400 × 1080 pixels. The performance may be a bit big for many people, but it fits well in my huge hands.
The display has good viewing angles, does not distort colors even when viewed from the extreme side. The display is quite vibrant and has punch colors, making it quite attractive to consume the content.
Thanks to the use of AMOLED technology, the display is also capable of providing darker blacks which makes it look quite good. The brightness level is also correct, as it is capable of handling itself in most situations.
I did not need to cover the screen when using the device during the daytime under the sun, nor did my eyes have to adjust too much while consuming the material with the room completely dark.
However, not all is good about the display. Pixel padding is too much around the front camera to reduce screen bleed and get in the way when playing a movie or game.
Also, the device only has a refresh rate of 60Hz, which makes me hard to get used to even after using a phone with a consistently high refresh rate.
The phone also does not come with HDR playback support, which is disappointing at the price point. Highly priced phones with higher refresh rates include Realme 7 Pro, Poco X3, and more.
How is the Performance of the Samsung galaxy f62?
The review unit we have received is powered by the Exynos 9825 SoC which uses a 4-2-2 core design instead of the usual 6-2. The Cortex A55 core clocked a total capacity of 1.95GHz, two Cortex A75 cores 2.4GHz, and Samsung’s own M4 core 2.73GHz.
It is packaged in a very performance 7nm chip and Samsung claims that it can beat even the strongest mid-rangers, even such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765-powered OnePlus Nord (Review).
Synthetic benchmarks testing CPUs and GPUs lend credibility to Samsung’s claim. The AnTuTu score for the Samsung Galaxy F62 comes out of 392374, while the Nord’s score stands at 319717. We outperform the Nord’s F62 in the G62bench5’s single core test, but lag behind in the multi-core test by a small margin.
