Samsung Galaxy A52 5G review | Flagship features, mid-rang, Specifications and all information Galaxy A52 is the best mid-range phone from Samsung yet, and our review tells you … If someone showed you the Galaxy A52’s specs without telling you the name of the … Strong performance (Snapdragon for everyone!)

hey guys welcome back to the website so
right here we have one of the most
anticipated phones of the year from
the galaxy a52 which is the sequel to
last year’s mid-range a51
which sold incredibly well mainly
because he was delivering a lot of big

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G Review

just below that (?) price target so
that’s a very appealing phone
but here the sequel to a52 does even
more and if you’re looking at this phone
next to for example the s21 you’ll see
that on a lot of scales it delivers very
similar specs you’re getting the ip67
water resistance rating
you’re getting a high refresh rate 90
hertz on here

six and a half inch display 4500
milliamp hour battery so it’s going to
be lasting a long time
and overall i mean on paper it’s a
really impressive phone
so now that i actually have it in my
hands here i’ve been testing this out
for a little while now

and i want to talk a little bit more
about how those specs actually translate
to the actual experience because like i
said in my previous article with the a72
a lot of phones out there sometimes
promised big specs

especially in the mid-range price
category but when you start using them
they start falling short in weird areas
and so after using this for a while i
really want to talk about that whether
or not this is a good buy
and so i want to start off with just the
feel of this phone again i mentioned
this with a 72
and this is a very similar aesthetic on
the back i really like it i like how
slim the phone is it feels really nice
in your hand

Samsung Galaxy A52

i know it’s a plastic back which at a
mid-range price category
a lot of them are plastic backs but even
in the flagship category some people
really start to like plastic bags even
more than glass backs
and so the more i’m using phones like
this one the more i realize that
a plastic back in many ways is
substantially better and personally

i’m starting to prefer that so this one
for example you’re not going to get any
fingerprints on this that’s a huge
positive compared to so many flagships
with the glass back
that just are fingerprint magnets this
one you can touch

anything you want rub the back of this
phone and in any light you won’t see any
fingerprints so that’s a huge positive
you also still have that ip67 water
resistance rating
the design is more flexible so you can
have a really nice smooth curve up to
the camera bump

Physical Tour

it’s a really slim camber bump as well
so another positive there
uh and really the big one is that
i’m not worried about this cracking i
most glass doesn’t really chip or crack
because it is gorilla glass but
this one with plastic is just a little
bit more durable and
i really like it so the design of this
phone i mean we’ll do a physical tour
here so you can see the rest of it but

i overall I’m very happy with the feel
of this phone the design of this phone
and that water resistance rating i know
i keep saying it but that was a big
thing that a lot of mid-range phones
were missing last year
that the a52 and 72 finally added
so looking at this phone let’s go around
uh starting off with the back
you see we have four different colors
here this one is i think they called
awesome violet


i’ll show you the colors on the screen
and so they’re all a little bit more on
the pastel side of colors but
again it’d be very easy to put a case on
this or get a skin for this or really do
whatever you want
to make this phone however you want we
it looks like you have four cameras on
the back

the bad news is you don’t have four
cameras on the back you really have two
cameras on the back
and then two gimmicks i mean i used to
that there were cameras and just not
good ones but i’m just trying to tell it
how it is now


they’re just gimmicks trying to get you
to buy this phone you have a depth
which you absolutely don’t need and you
know you don’t need it because the
flagships don’t have it
and the second thing is a macro camera
again something that is completely

useless it just looks like a camera on
the back
uh and you’re never going to use it
but we’ll get it i’ll show you we’re
going to do a camera test later in this
and i’ll show you what that camera is
actually capable of the good news is the
other two cameras are actually

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G

impressive so we have a 64 megapixel
wide-angle camera
and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle
camera both of those
are very functional to test those out
later on in the article
but we don’t actually have a telephoto
lens on here not a big drawback that’s
probably my least used lens anyway
so i was happy with that choice um if
they’re going to cut out one camera
that’s the one to cut out but

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G
Samsung Galaxy A52 5G

i just would rather have that than a macro
and a depth camera looking around this
phone on the top we really don’t have
much we have a microphone there
and next to that we have our sim tray as
you can see is either dual sim
or you can put a sim and an sd card in
here so you do have expandable storage i

believe up to one terabyte in here
a massive amount of storage and i would
honestly never use that in a phone
because it does come with 128 gigabytes
already on board so
that expandable storage is very useful if
you wanted to move over to the right side
just like every other Samsung phone we
have our volume rocker right above the
side key

Galaxy A52

which you can remap it’s your power
button your Bixby key whatever you want
it to do open your camera you can remap
that within settings
looking at the bottom of this phone we
have our speaker i’ll get into a full
speaker test in a second
that is next to our usb type-c port for
data transfer and whatever you want to
do with that

it’s also supporting fast charging or
actually 25 watt fast charging
it doesn’t come with a super fast
charger in the box it comes with an
adaptive fast charger

so a little bit slower but regardless
allowing fast charging on here so you
can go out and buy your own fast charger
is really nice because it doesn’t
support wireless charging in the back i
don’t think that’s a big deal it’s a
mid-range phone you can’t expect
everything on there
and removing wireless charging that’s
fine in my book 25 watt fast charging
is still really great to have we have a


microphone next to that and of course we have that
headphone jack right there a big thing
because as these phones are getting more
and more impressive the a52 the a72
they’re really starting to get more
enticing when you’re looking at the
flagship phones versus these
this is a very capable phone and having
that headphone jack is a big plus that

we’re not seeing
in any of the flagship phones out there
so i know a lot of people
would definitely be interested in having
that looking at the front of this we
have a
six and a half inch display and this
display really packs a punch
very very impressive so very bright very
colorful it goes up to 800 nits
which as far as a mid-range phone goes
is very bright i’m able to

Mid-range Samsung A52

film this very easily outside as you can
see here and you can see it
in broad daylight now it’s not quite as
bright as flagships for example
a lot of flagships go up to maybe 1100
to 1200 nits

Mid-range Samsung A52
Mid-range Samsung A52

so slightly less bright but again this
is very competitive at that mid-range
price this also has a 90 hertz refresh
rate so
you’re gonna have a really smooth screen
it’s not 120 but
to be re to be honest it’s really hard
to tell the difference between 90 and


it’s very easy to tell the difference
between 90 and 60.
this feels way smoother than a 60
hertz display
this also is super AMOLED and it is a
full hd plus display so really a great
display overall
for a mid-range phone and i mean at this

it’s going to be hard to find something
something that competes with that on the
top something you’ll notice especially
when the screen is off
is the metal ring around the selfie
camera it’s a 32-megapixel selfie camera
which we’ll test out

Samsung A52 5G

but you’ll see that here that is very
distracting i mean when your phone’s on
it’s not especially annoying and i’m
sure you get used to it
but when the phone’s off i just always
noticed that

Samsung A52 5G
Samsung A52 5G

on the bottom of the screen the other
thing again this display
really packs a lot the bottom has an
in-screen fingerprint sensor and as i
mentioned before
with the a72 it’s pretty fast and
responsive i think it’s a little bit too
low on the screen

i end up reaching my thumb down pretty
far and it just works really well
from my experience, it’s something that
if you’ve never used one of these it
does take a little bit of time to get
used to but
i’ve been using Samsung phones for
several years now with the fingerprint
sensor on the screen
and so i’m very used to it and it’s very
fast and responsive it does a great job
on the outside, this phone has a lot of
great things going for it one thing that
is not going forward is actually the
haptics the vibration on here
is really feeling pretty cheap it’s
relatively strong but at the same time

Sounds Galaxy A52 5g

you end up using this if it’s vibrating
for a phone call a text message
or any kind of just touch feedback on
here if you have that enabled
it just feels and sounds really really

the haptic motor on here was far from impressive
and actually, i just disabled it all
together now something I’m especially
interested in mid-range phones is
actually the cameras we know that
flagships typically take great photos
but mid-range phones are really a mixed
bag it’s hit or miss some of them are
really great

some of them are absolutely terrible and
this one just because it has a lot of
doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll take
great photos but let’s get into a camera
test now
as well as a speaker test to see how
well the cameras and speakers perform
so i took a few specific photos to test
out different aspects of the camera and
you can see

Sounds Galaxy A52 5g

10x digital zoom

i mean it’s a golden hour but you get a
lot of detail a lot of color
really good sharpness in this pine tree
and then here you can see a nice natural
blur when the subject’s close
although it is a little bit noisy in the
background here we’re seeing a lot of
really nice sharp details in the lines

on the power line and then here is some great dynamic
range obviously that’s a very dark
shadow in real life
so it really lifted it up well we can go
into 2x digital zoom

it’s a little bit noisy a little bit
less detailed here as you’d expect
but for the sunset photo, i thought this
looked really good honestly
it didn’t have a ton of dynamic range
there but you’re still getting you know
enough detail it still looks decent
when you get the 10x digital zoom that’s
the max it allows you to do

Ultrawide lens

it really becomes much less usable the
ultrawide lens honestly looked pretty
good really consistent color and
lighting everywhere
you see a little bit of a glow around
subjects from the hdr effect on here
and you’ll see a little tiny bit of
warping on the edges but overall it does
a pretty good job

of keeping things looking real the rear
lens had this strange issue when i held
the camera is relatively close not that
but it missed focusing a couple of times until
i finally got it here
live focus mode i thought looked really
good it really nailed the edges on this
and then the selfie camera i think also
did a pretty decent job

Macro lens

so it didn’t really over soften too much
it’s soft in my face a little bit more
in live focus mode
but again it hit the edges pretty well
looking at the macro lens
this is really completely useless in my
opinion because it really doesn’t
have any kind of autofocus and it’s only
five megapixels

okay so now taking a look at the article
i’m just walking and this is the primary
rear lens
oh it’s doing a pretty decent job this
is golden hour right now so
you’re gonna have really great lighting
everywhere but good color pretty good
dynamic range as we look around
and you’ll see that there is definitely
a decent amount of uh a detail and
everything it’s a little bit over
sharpened in some of the trees in my

Lens A52 5G

you can obviously see there’s a ton of
trash out here it’s really disgusting
amount of power line
right now but we can zoom out to the
ultrawide lens and here’s a little
drawback here

Lens A52 5G
Lens A52 5G

when we pinch to zoom out it just all
the way to 0.5x zoom to the ultrawide
lens so you’re not going to
seamlessly zoom between them but you can
jump between them
again it’s going to look a little it’s
just going up over like you can see
right here


but we can zoom in from here to 2x zoom
all the way up to
i believe 10x zoom which is still
surprisingly sharp and steady wow
that’s actually really impressive it’s
holding very steady on the subject
and then we can seamlessly go back to
the wide angle so i’m pretty impressed
with the video quality on this one but
again you guys can leave a comment
let me know how this looks and sounds to
you but let’s see how it does with skin

okay so this is what it looks and sounds
like with a human subject in front of
the camera
you guys can leave a comment and let me
know how this video looks to you
how it sounds to you again we don’t have
a microphone like

really prominent on the back but again
let me know what you guys think of this
all right now this is the selfie camera
shooting 4k 30. honestly it’s doing a
pretty decent job i’m kind of impressed
it’s golden hour so again this is
definitely really good lighting but
regardless leave a comment let me know
what you think of this
how it looks and sounds if i turn around
maybe some slightly tougher lighting for

Selfie Camera Samsung A52

it’s still doing a pretty good job
honestly i’m pretty impressed with this
if i walk around
it seems to be stable enough maybe not
quite as stable as the rear camera
but as far as a mid-range selfie camera

i really can’t be too disappointed in
this one so for a quick speaker test i’m
just going to play
a youtube article here
so you’re obviously not getting a ton of
bass but it sounds pretty
just 10 miles south of Yellowstone is
grand Teton national

park and although the two parks are side
by side talking about what’s under the
hood with this model right here
this is the a52 just regular it’s not
the 5g model
and so that means you’re obviously not
getting 5g on here which is not a
problem a lot of mid-range phones
don’t have 5g yet anyway and to be
honest 4g is plenty fast in most

128 Gigabytes

so i had no problem with that it has 128
gigabytes on the base model
and there are a bunch of different
variations this one right here has 6
gigabytes of ram
and this is running the snapdragon 720 g
processor which i know snapdragon has a
lot of

numbers in in their processor names but
this one is honestly not especially fast
i was
really not that impressed with that at
this price it’s definitely competitive
it’s holding it’s holding its own the
a72 is running the same processor
and that phone i feel like should have a
faster processor but with a52
this is definitely passable it’s not
gonna be the fastest out there but it
definitely gets the job done you can see

Android 11

it from opening apps
you might take an extra beat to get them
open but it does the job
this is also running the latest one ui
and android 11
so really no complaints under the hood
with this phone it packs the specs that
you’re really looking for

but it doesn’t exceed my expectations in
any one of them so overall guys what are
my thoughts on the samsung galaxy a52
well i think you can summarize it like
this samsung did a great job on the
outside of this phone on the back it
looks really nice

Display Galaxy A52

smooth plastic finish a bunch of cameras
slim camera bump
and a really nice size for a phone slim
feels nice in your hand
and of course the display on the front
also looks really great 90 hertz
very bright very vibrant and again they
just did a great job on the outside of
this phone the ip67 water resistance

Display Galaxy A52
Display Galaxy A52

is a welcomed upgrade for a mid-range
phone but
other than that there are some drawbacks
of course the processor’s
not the fastest the cameras are good but
they didn’t add the telephoto lens and
instead they have
a macro lens and a depth camera which
are completely useless
and of course the other thing are that
the haptics on here

Battery life Samsung a52 5g

just feel really cheap but of course the
slogan wasn’t
awesome haptics awesome processor it’s
awesome screen awesome camera
and long lasting battery life and that’s
the slogan of the a series and the a52
right here

definitely delivered on the awesome
screen 90hz refresh rate is exactly what
i wanted to see
on a mid-range phone it’s bright it’s
vibrant six and a half inches
yes there’s the bezel around there but i
think it’s an awesome screen
the camera is a little bit more up for
debate i wish they would rather

i would rather see them get rid of those
two useless cameras and
i mean personally i would rather just
have one really good camera but having
the ultrawide camera is also a nice
thing to add there so

Samsung Ecosystem

you guys can leave a comment below or
you can go over to twitter and check out
the photos
and let me know what you think of the
cameras here if you think they’re
awesome cameras or not
and then the third thing is the long
lasting battery life of course 4 500
milliamp hours

Samsung Ecosystem
Samsung Ecosystem

is more than enough i’m very happy with
that and that would honestly be
an awesome battery on a lot of flagships
out there so seeing that on a mid-range
overall the galaxy a52 at this price
i think it’s a fantastic phone i think
it’s a very easy buy if you’re into the
samsung ecosystem

if you really want to have a phone with
a larger display a better display
and overall a better looking phone for
this price of course there’s a lot of
competition out there if you want a
really fast processor

Good option

maybe the iPhone SE is a good option if
you really want one
a very good camera and even a lower price
the pixel 4a is a great option
but if you’re looking for a
well-balanced flagship light if you want
to think of it as that at around 400 or even less on sales
then the galaxy a52 i think it’s a
pretty nice phone so
guys if you enjoyed this article consider

Midrange phones try to excel at one thing. This phone tries to excel at many things and actually excels in a display, battery, and aesthetic/build quality. The cameras are mediocre and the processor is passable, but far from fast.
