Samsung Galaxy A52 Review

Samsung A52 is a smartphone that has successfully taken its place in the market as a competitor to the extremely attractive Chinese models. After relying on its previous successes for a long time, it decided to change its policy and make its cheaper phones much more functional.

Design

This Samsung model strongly resembles the Samsung A51. And here we see an Infinity-O display and a block of cameras shaped like a rectangle. Unlike its predecessor, however, the Samsung A52 has IP67 protection. This means that it is completely protected from dust and even from accidental short-term exposure to water.

Looking at the device in more detail, you will notice that its pages are made of plastic, but look like aluminum. The back panel is also plastic with a matte effect. The latter contributes to the comfortable work with the smartphone.

Samsung A52 is available in four colors - black, white, purple and light blue. The bezels around the screen are small, which helps the display to occupy almost 85% of the front of the smartphone. Weighing less than 200 grams, the Samsung A52 is suitable for use by all users.

Display

To enjoy working with the smartphone, the manufacturer has provided a high quality display with a diagonal of 6.5 inches. Other key features include Super AMOLED technology, a 20: 9 aspect ratio, 3rd generation Gorilla Glass and a maximum screen refresh rate of up to 90 Hz. In other words, the Samsung A52 is the perfect solution for users who like to play on their phone or watch movies.

Facial recognition and fingerprint scanner

In the Samsung A52 you get two methods to protect your personal information. To unlock your smartphone, you can use face recognition, for which you will need the front camera. The procedure takes only a few seconds. Ie acts instantly. The fingerprint scanner is below the screen and will delight you with immediate action. In less than a second you will be able to interact with applications and games.

Productivity

To make the Samsung A52 fast and powerful enough, the company based it on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G. The chipset is based on 8nm techno process. Its performance is satisfactory, which is why it is a common choice in the new models on the market. The Snapdragon 720G includes 2 productive Kryo 465 Gold cores (Cortex-A76) running at up to 2.3 GHz and 6 energy efficient Kryo 465 Silver cores (Cortex-A55) up to 1.8 GHz. They are complemented by an Adreno 618 graphics processor.

Samsung A52 is available in several configurations - with 4, 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal storage, respectively.

Cameras

In the Samsung A52 you will not encounter major changes in the application of the cameras compared to the Galaxy A51. The interface is easy to use, intuitive and understandable. You can switch from the front to the rear camera by swiping from the bottom up. If you move your finger from left to right, you will see various parameters such as filters, photos, videos and more. You will find additional modes in the "More" menu.

By default, the main module of the Samsung A52 takes 16-megapixel photos, although the camera is 64-megapixel. In ideal conditions - when you are outside and the weather is sunny, you will make exciting, saturated and sufficiently detailed shots. The main rear camera is complemented by 3 sensors. One of them is 12 MP and ultra wide angle with aperture f2.2. A 5-megapixel module is responsible for macro photography, and another 2-megapixel module is responsible for depth measurement. Both with aperture f2.4.

Photo quality with the Samsung A52 is good even in low light. Optical stabilization contributes to this. The camera now captures more light, which contributes to brighter shots.

Thanks to the Super Steady Galaxy A52 mode, you will make smooth and stable videos.

The front camera in turn is 32-megapixel and with it you can create photos with bokeh effect.

Autonomous work

Samsung A52 is equipped with a non-removable battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh. Given the energy-efficient platform, you can enjoy good battery life - over half a day with intensive use.

The smartphone supports 25 W fast charging technology, which, according to the manufacturer, allows you to have 50% charge in just half an hour of recharging. However, you should know that the Samsung A52 comes with a charger of only 15 W. you need to buy more powerful to fully enjoy the fast charge.
