Galaxy A14 5G is for all your favorite moments

The Samsung Galaxy A14 G5 takes super selfies in landscape mode.

With the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G's long lasting battery, you never miss a moment of your life.

One user we know plays Call of Duty on his Samsung Galaxy A14 5G, and reports that "The 5G works great. The video is very smooth and awesome on the expansive and smooth display, and the battery life is incredible even when under great use. I estimate it lasts about 36 hours. Frankly, the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G has the best battery life of any phone I've worked with, easily."

Additional details

The Samsung Galaxy A14 5G features a volume adjustment control and a fingerprint sensor on the side.

The Samsung Galaxy A14 5G features a volume adjustment control and a fingerprint sensor on the righthand side, and 3.5mm jack for headphones and a single speaker near the bottom-mounted USB-C port. For the sake of comparison, the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G is slightly larger than the Galaxy A13 5G, and its display offers much crisper resolution.

Expandable storage means you can capture and share more memories.

Like the Galaxy A13 5G, the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G has the same Samsung MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset. This is paired with an operating system of 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, the latter of which you can expand using the microSD card slot on the left side of the device.

The Samsung Galaxy A14 5G's Quick Share capability lets you transfer images in a flash.

Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G also has the same 5,000mAh battery and 15W wired charging, so there’s no charger in the box. You do, however, get a USB-C cable, a SIM ejector tool, and a quick start guide.

The Samsung Galaxy A14 5G comes with customization options so you can match your app icons to your wallpaper, and you can delete almost all of the battery zappers like Facebook and Netflix and a bunch of Microsoft apps.

In comparison to the A13, the Samsung Galaxy A14 feels more substantial and sturdier when you're holding it in your hand. It even looks more refined than its predecessor.

Fingerprint fighters

There's an interesting texture on the back of the device which looks and feels cool and might just help reduce fingerprint marks. Our friend who plays Call of Duty is not a fan of fingerprints on his phone and thinks the "ridges" on the back of the Galaxy A14 5G help fight them. (For what it's worth, we're not fingerprint fans either!)

What users are saying

"There are three main things I'm loving about my Galaxy A14 5G so far. I've already multiplied my storage space with a micro-SD card, my battery can last several days even with a lot of streaming, and the interface is amazing. It’s not only aesthetically pleasing, the Galaxy A14 5G is very intuitive and offers so many options for customization. When I'm scrolling or switching between apps, it's very fast and smooth to the eyes. My Galaxy A14 5G has handled everything I do on a daily basis better than my previous phone which was twice the price." Renmilktoast, 5-star Samsung review
