Style and camera will impress


Whenever a new phone comes in Samsung Galaxy M series, people ask the same question, how powerful is this phone this time? Because phones of this series always provide better features in the budget. Especially the camera performance is very powerful. This is the reason why when Samsung Galaxy M55 5G came to us for review, we checked it on every parameter and tried to know whether this phone is also capable of taking the legacy of its series forward or is it left behind?

In this article:

Will like the design and display

When you first look at the Samsung Galaxy M55 5G, you will feel like picking up the phone right away. The company has kept the design quite gentle. The back panel of the phone is polycarbonate which is quite comfortable to hold. However, in this price range, phones with glass and vegan leather material are now coming, which people are liking a lot. But the company has still expressed confidence in polycarbonate only. The good thing can be said that it does not slip much from the hands and there are no fingerprints on the back panel. In such a situation, the phone does not get dirty and looks neat and clean. Along with this, the company has introduced it in gradient color, which changes color when it rotates and looks good. The corners are slightly curved, thus giving better grip.

There are three rings for the camera in the rear panel and a flash is also visible along with it. Its camera style is similar to the Galaxy S24, which feels quite premium. Talking about ports and buttons, USB Type-C port and loudspeaker are provided in the lower panel of the phone, while SIM slot is available in the left panel and volume rocker and power button are available in the right panel.

Overall, the design is good and the weight is also only 180 grams. In this case it will not feel too heavy. You will be able to use this phone for a long time. Yes! As a drawback, it can be said that if the new design was in material then perhaps it would have been more fun. At the same time, the absence of 3.5 mm audio jack in it can also be called a major shortcoming.

After the design, the display of Samsung Galaxy M55 will also impress you. The phone has a 6.7-inch FullHD+ display and the company has used Super AMOLED panel. You can also understand that Samsung's AMOLED display provides a better viewing experience than others. Along with this, you get 120Hz refresh rate and 1000 nits peak brightness.


Although you can say that there are phones with higher brightness available in this price range, but here too you will not find any reduction in the viewing experience. Whether you are indoor or outdoor, you will be able to read all the text or images available on the screen clearly.

Along with this, you get support of Wildvine L1 with Galaxy M55, where you will be able to stream OTT content with Full HD resolution. One more thing I would like to mention here is that slightly thick bezels were seen in the recently launched phones by Samsung. This phone has very thin bezels, hence despite the big screen, this phone becomes compact. You will get a punch hole cut out on the screen, but it is not even visible in the closed screen. In the end, I would say about the display that the display is quite good in its price range.

Camera quality is also good

For photography, Samsung M55 5G has a triple rear camera. The main camera of the phone is 50 megapixels which supports wide angle. Along with this you also get OIS support. Its second sensor is of 8 megapixels which is ultrawide lens. There is a third 2 megapixel macro camera.


Many pictures taken from the main camera looked good. However, one thing that we noticed is that earlier Samsung phones used to overexpose a little and capture a little more blue tone. This time it seemed a little more natural, but there is still room for improvement. Its main camera was clicking default images at 12.5 MP.

As far as picture detailing is concerned, we found it to be good and it was exposing things well. You will also like its wide angle. But in the wide angle photo the corners definitely looked a bit stretched. Apart from this, there was a slight lack of cutout and depth in the portrait shot.

Talking about night photography, you can click a long exposure photo by keeping your hand steady for about 7 seconds, in which the detailing is quite good. Here you get the benefit of OIS.

Yes! During the selfie, it can be said that it was clicking a slightly artificial photo, whereas a 50 MP camera has been provided in the front.

Ordinary in performance

This phone works on Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset which is prepared on 4 nanometer fabrication. The company has introduced it in three memory variants. Available in 128 GB and 256 GB storage with 8 GB RAM. Whereas 256 GB memory is available with 12 GB RAM. The phone has memory card support and you will be able to use cards up to 1 TB.

During our test, we conducted several benchmark tests on it where this phone was able to score up to 5,84,312 on AnTuTu benchmark. Whereas on Geekbench the score was up to 1,020 in single core and 2,529 in multi core. Graphics test scores ranged from 4,911 on the Manhattan to 6,296 on the Tirex. In PC Mark performance, this phone was able to score up to 11,614. We ran the performance benchmark burn test on it, where the Galaxy M55 reached 67.3 percent, so looking at the overall performance score, it can be called average.

We found it a bit slow even during daily use. Although there was no complaint of the phone hanging or getting too hot, the operating system was a bit slow.

We also did gaming on the phone and could play Call of Duty on very high settings. Whereas in BGMI it goes till HDR setting. There was a battery drop of about 9 percent after 30 minutes of gaming, which might be a bit much. We started gaming at 29 degrees and within half an hour it heated up to about 39 degrees. In such a situation, we would say that this is not a phone for gaming.

The company has introduced Samsung Galaxy M55 5G on Android 14 and on it you get support of Samsung's One UI 6.1. The good thing here can be said that the company has given the assurance of 4 years of OS support and 5 years of security support, which is not the case with any other brand.

Battery backup is also fine

For power backup, it has a 5,000mAh battery and it supports fast charge up to 45W. However the charger is not available with the phone. Talking about charging test, in our standard charging test where we charge the phone from 20 percent to 100 percent, it took 64 minutes. Whereas on PC Mark battery test, it lasted 12 hours, 58 minutes which cannot be called very good. We were expecting around 16 hours. However, due to good software optimization, it takes one day easily.


In this dual SIM based phone, you also get WiFi 5 GHz band support along with Bluetooth 5.0. There is also an in-display fingerprint scanner along with a simple PIN password for security.



The company has introduced Samsung Galaxy M55 5G at a starting price of Rs 26,999. After looking at the price, the question arises whether this phone is worth buying or not? In such a situation, let me tell you that there are two answers to this. First of all, if you want to buy a phone which looks good, has the best display and the camera is also excellent, then you can look at Samsung Galaxy M55 5G. But if you want a good gaming phone then this is not the device for you. The performance of the phone is ordinary. Yes! There are some bonuses which are rarely seen in phones of this range such as 4 years of OS support and OIS camera. These features also increase the usefulness of the phone.
