Samsung Galaxy F04 Review: Worth the Money?

If you haven’t noticed till now, there is a ‘*’ over the 8GB RAM title here and on Samsung’s official website too. What does it mean? The phone has 8GB RAM, right? Well, sorry to break your heart here but nope, the Samsung Galaxy F04 does not have 8GB of RAM. Instead, this mobile phone comes with just 4GB RAM and Samsung boosts its RAM with a feature called ‘RAM Plus’. This feature adds virtual RAM to a mobile phone by using the same amount of ROM/storage space from the device. So what; it will still make your phone faster, right? Nope, do not choose this phone just because it says that it has ‘8GB RAM’. Virtual RAM is never the same as the RAM put in a phone as hardware.

Moreover, 8GB of RAM doesn’t make any phone faster. RAM just helps a mobile phone to become a better multitasking device. The actual performance of a mobile phone depends on its processor, storage types, UI, and then somewhat on its RAM. And, when you look at the other aspects of performance in the Samsung Galaxy F04, you will understand that this phone is not worth the price that it asks from you. The MediaTek Helio P35 is an old processor and definitely one of the worst chipsets in this price range.

Also, with the Samsung Core One UI paired with this weak chipset, the F04 would be one of the worst-performing phones under Rs 10,000. Not to say that even the primary camera of 13MP would be useless with a bad processor and the selfie camera of 5MP, let’s just pretend it’s not there.

Oh, are you looking for a fingerprint scanner? Let’s save your time as the Samsung Galaxy F04 doesn’t come with one. The only thing that can be a bit good about the F04 phone is its 5000 mAh battery, which is nothing new in this price range. Also, Android updates of 2 years would have been good if this phone, coming in mid of January 2023 would have had Android 13 out of the box. But nope, the F04 runs on Android 12, and Samsung would provide software updates later.

And talking about software, do not forget to check out our list of the Best Android UI Ranked.

So looking at all these specifications, it’s very difficult to understand what kind of users Samsung is trying to target here. And for the review, the Galaxy F04 is a big, fat ‘NO’. There are many better smartphones available in the market around the same price range and Samsung is not one of them. Do not forget to check out our Best Mobile Phone Deals Page.
