Design

The device has been transformed and updated, with an interesting design and housing, which is difficult to leave fingerprints. The color range is well chosen, which will definitely be appreciated by consumers. You can choose between white, black, purple and sky blue. Samsung A32 5G is available in exactly the same colors.

A distinctive feature of modern smartphones is the camera unit. So the designers of the Samsung A32 have decided to abandon the single unit and place the modules separately. In this way, they look more orderly and more minimalist.

Display

Samsung A32 is equipped with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED matrix with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The minimum brightness is 2 km / m2 and the maximum is 431 cd / m2. This means that even in sunny weather you will not have a problem reading information from the display.

In recent years, it has become a practice not only in the flagships to place displays with increased refresh rate, which is welcome for users. It is much more comfortable with them. The picture is smoother and the animation is faster. In the settings, you can also select the color mode of the display, adjust the white balance and increase the sensitivity of the sensor. For those of you who have a habit of handling your smartphone at night, there is a mode to protect your eyes from blue light. The latter is able to adjust to the time of day.

Productivity

Under the nice case of Samsung A32 lies the MediaTek Helio G80 processor, which is combined with 4, 6 or 8GB of RAM. Although the device is not one of the most productive on the market, it easily handles most of the tasks that the user uses on a daily basis.

Depending on the configuration you are looking at, the internal storage can be 64 or 128 GB. You can expand it by up to 1 TB using the microSD card slot.

For comparison, the Samsung A32, which supports 5G networks, is available in a configuration of 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.

Samsung A32 works with Android 11 operating system and One UI 3.1 company interface. It is equipped with Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and NFC modules.

Cameras

Looking at the photo capabilities, we see that the Samsung A32 is equipped with a rear camera consisting of 4 modules. The main one is 64-megapixel with an aperture of f / 1.8. Attached to it are an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module with an aperture of f / 2.2, a 5-megapixel camera (f / 2.4) and a 5-megapixel sensor, which is tasked with providing quality photos with a bokeh effect. The application has all the most necessary modes - "professional", for evening and macro photos, portraits and more.

For a mid-range smartphone, the photo quality of the Samsung A32 is a good level. During the day you will create flawless shots. As the light level decreases, it is possible to detect noise and blur some details. The macro camera deserves high praise.

The selfie camera in turn is a single, 20-megapixel, with an aperture of f / 2.2. With it you will be able to record video at a resolution of 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second.

Autonomous work

Samsung A32 is equipped with a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. Considering that the device does not work with the most powerful chip, the charge will be enough for active work with the phone for at least a day and a half, even two. It takes about two hours to recharge the battery from 0% to 100%.

Conclusion

If you are hesitant to take the Samsung A32, leave all doubts here. This model will give you a lot for its price. It creates a pleasant impression at first sight. It looks stylish, has a high refresh rate display and offers good cameras. In addition, the battery provides plenty of independence for people with a dynamic daily life.

Isn't that enough for you? Then take a look at facial recognition technology and the fingerprint scanner. With them you will have excellent protection of your personal information. Facial unlocking works perfectly, it doesn't take much time. The same can be said for a fingerprint scanner. The moment you move your finger, you will have access to your favorite applications, games and sites.
