Samsung Galaxy A52 review: Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy A52, a new Galaxy A series smartphone. The Galaxy A51 has been one of the most popular Android smartphones of the past year and now the company has launched the Samsung Galaxy A52, its successor ?. This phone comes with strict specifications. The reason for the high demand for the Galaxy A51 was not only its specifications but also the build quality and the handy feel of the phone. For this reason, the brand had the responsibility of making the Galaxy A52 superior to the previous smartphone (Galaxy A51). For the past few days we have been using the Galaxy A52 smartphone, so know if Samsung has been successful in this business?
Samsung Galaxy A52 comes with an attractive design. The phone comes with a polycarbonate back, a metal frame. The back panel gives a premium feel even though it is plastic. In other words, you will never find this “cheap” phone. However, the talk about the glass back is different. The fingerprint stains don’t come on the back of the smartphone, but due to the plastic, they can get scratched quickly. Therefore, our advice would be to use the phone with a back cover.
The phone’s weight balance is excellent, allowing it to keep its grip. There is no problem using the handset with one hand. The device has a Matte frame, which gives a better touch to its look. The volume buttons are on the right side along with the power button. The top has a sim tray, while the bottom receives a 3.5mm audio jack and a Type-C port with a speaker grille.
Samsung Galaxy A52 review: The phone has a 6.5-inch Full HD + Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The screen offers excellent brightness. The screen of the phone is well seen not only in low light areas but also in direct sunlight. The screen is quite bright, so there is no problem using it anywhere. The phone has a 90Hz and 60Hz refresh rate option. The display is pretty smooth. We saw no problem.
Processor, operating system, and performance
The Galaxy A52 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor. Even if you find this processor outnumbered, Samsung has optimally optimized its smartphone. There is no problem in terms of performance. Games such as Call of Duty in the handset can be played on a high setting. During the game, no problem such as heating the phone or dropping the frame was detected.
This smartphone is rated IP67 which is a very good thing. In the mid-range budget, only a few smartphones with an IP67 rating were seen. This rating means that the phone is waterproof. This phone will work even after being dropped in water. It gets OneUI 3.1 based on Android 11. You get lots of apps preinstalled in the handset.
The Galaxy A52 comes with many Samsung apps (like Samsung Health, Smart Thinks). Apart from that, there are many apps like Snapchat, CandyCrush, Mojo available. However, the good thing is that you can delete them. There is no visible reduction in the performance of the phone. The user interface responds very quickly. At the same time, Samsung said they have been providing updates to their phones for three years, so there are no issues with security patches and the latest updates.
Samsung Galaxy A52 Review: The smartphone has a 4500mAh battery, which comes with a 15W charger. However, the phone does support a 25W charge. Samsung might offer a 25W charger with the phone, which is available in the Galaxy F62 smartphone. Note that the Galaxy F62 is offered at a lower price than this A52. The battery life of the device is also decent. On a single charge, you can use it most of the day, but the phone takes a long time to charge (from the charger found in the box). The company made a small cut here. It takes over an hour and a half for the Galaxy A52 to be fully charged with a 15W charger.
The Samsung Galaxy A52 has a quad rear camera setup. The main focus of the phone is 64 megapixels, which supports OIS. OIS or optical image stabilization has the advantage of making videos. Video shot using this function is more stable. Apart from that, the phone has a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5MP depth sensor, and a 5MP macro lens.
Whether taking pictures in low light or in natural light, the smartphone works well in both places. However, in low-light areas, the phone sometimes oversaturates the color of photos. Pictures taken at wide-angle or in macro mode are good. In the camera app, you also get an option called Fun. With this help, photos can be taken using Snapchat filters. For the selfie, the company gave away a 32MP lens, which works well. We share the camera sample with you so that you can understand it better.
The phone comes with a built-in fingerprint sensor, which works quickly. The smartphone comes with the Always On Display function. Regarding connectivity, the signal reception in the phone is also good. There is no problem calling. The phone has a stereo speaker which is great. On many occasions, its sound is very loud. The gaming experience makes the speaker even more exciting. People who watch the video will like the speakerphone of the phone very much. The phone also has a 3.5mm audio jackhole.
How is this smartphone?
This Samsung smartphone is a great mid-range device. The Galaxy A52 doesn’t offer 5G connectivity, but the question is, do you buy the phone with only 5G in mind? If your answer is yes, you can see other phones. At the same time, if your answer is “No”, it is a great device. According to its price, the smartphone has a powerful camera and a combination of excellent performance. The IP67 index further strengthens the favor of this smartphone. All in all, this Samsung smartphone can turn into a great mid-range device.
Where is the deficiency?
- The disappointment of having a plastic back panel in the phone is disappointing. Since this Samsung smartphone has a budget of over 25 thousand rupees, the plastic panel gives the impression of cutting costs.
- Another downside to the phone is the lack of 5G. However, the possibility of launching 5G so early in India is less likely.
- The charger that came with the phone weighs only 15 W. Whereas the company had given a 25W charger in the recently launched Galaxy F62 smartphone (the price of the Galaxy F62 is lower than that of the Galaxy A52). It would have been better if there was also a 25W charger with the Galaxy A52.
- Heating of the phone while charging.
- In dimly lit areas, the camera will further enhance the color of photos.
