Samsung M32 5G impresses with its classic look. It is elegant and devoid of any decorative elements. Available in two colors - black and blue. It is somewhat reminiscent of another smartphone that was launched before it - Samsung Galaxy A52. On its rear panel you will find the quadruple main camera, which is positioned as standard - in the upper left corner. The rounded edges of the case, the quality workmanship and its relatively low weight guarantee comfortable use. You will find the fingerprint scanner side mounted. It is conveniently located and predisposes to instant unlocking of the device when you decide to use it.
Samsung M32 5G comes with a 6.5-inch HD + display with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. Given that there are already many models on the market with 90 and 120 Hz, this is one of the disadvantages of the model. Compared to the entire front surface, the screen occupies only 81.6%, which is small and suggests the presence of thick frames.
Given the TFT technology used in the screen, the picture quality is not the best. The resolution is also not the highest. This ranks the Samsung M32 5G among the models with compromised screen quality, but it will be highly appreciated by anyone who does not aspire to have a device with premium features.
Samsung M32 5G is based on MediaTek MT6853 Dimensity 720 processor and comes with Android 11 operating system and OneUI 3.1 interface. The manufacturer has promised 2 years of renewal, which means that the Samsung M32 5G will one day be with Android 13.
The chipset is powerful enough to play a variety of games. You will not feel uncomfortable when performing various daily tasks.
The smartphone is available in two versions - with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. A separate slot allows you to expand the latter if you accumulate a lot of photos, videos or other types of content.
We should also mention the support for 5G. This is the feature that will make the Samsung M32 5G preferred by many.
Samsung M32 5G comes with an impressive rear camera consisting of 4 lenses. The main one is 48-megapixel and is complemented by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. The other two cameras are designed for macro photography and bokeh effect. The selfie camera, in turn, is 13-megapixel and wide-angle. With them you can record videos with a resolution of 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second.
Since the Samsung M32 5G has no optical stabilization, don't expect the shots to be stable on their own. You have to show skill and attention.
The 48-megapixel sensor is high quality, but the South Korean company is good to optimize it for this type of device. Photos will be obtained with slightly different from natural colors.
In other words, the photo capabilities of the Samsung M32 5G are decent, but we do not recommend it to users who care about them. On the market you will find much better options for the same price.
Samsung M32 5G comes with a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh, which seems to have become standard for 2021. You also get support for charging with a power of 15W, thanks to which you will recharge faster. It is curious why the South Korean company has focused on this power, when there are already a lot of devices with 30W, 50W, 65W and others.
Because the smartphone has a TFT HD display, the battery provides two days of battery life. With more moderate use, you can count on more.
Interesting features and characteristics
In the smartphone you will find a useful feature - a sliding bar where you can collect applications that you use often. Thus, access to them will be as short as possible.
For its low price, the Samsung M32 5G offers really good features. Not to mention the large battery and support for fast charging technology. The latest version of Android and the 48-megapixel camera deserve attention. Of course, you also get support for 5G networks.
If you are unsure whether the Samsung M32 5G is the smartphone you need, let us offer you some adequate alternatives. These are the Redmi Note 10 Pro / Max, POCO X3 Pro (especially if you are looking for a gaming device) and Motorola G60.
