Samsung Galaxy M52 5G Review

Over the past few years, many inexpensive smartphones with giant batteries have hit the market. In response to this trend, Samsung has created the M series of smartphones. However, the South Korean company does not go to extremes and in order not to create "bricks", it relies on a more delicate approach. In September 2021, the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G was introduced to the market - the new addition to the series. It combines long autonomous operation and good performance.


Visually, the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G fits into the styling of the company's smartphones. It has rounded edges and comfortable dimensions. The attention is immediately drawn by the Super AMOLED Plus screen, which has a FullHD resolution. The notch for the front camera is in the center, at the top. On the rear panel, in traditional fashion, we find a camera and flash unit positioned in the top left corner.

Despite the large screen diagonal, the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G has turned out relatively compact and thin. Its body is made of polycarbonate and looks expensive. Moreover, no finger marks accumulate on it. They are difficult to notice and leave scratches.


As mentioned earlier, the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G has an impressive display. It has a diagonal of 6.7 inches and is AMOLED. It's got an excellent refresh rate - up to 120 Hz. Since the smartphone is not a flagship, there is no dynamic refresh rate. From the settings, you can choose between 90 and 120 Hz. The higher the benchmark, the faster you will consume battery power.

About the display of the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G, we must also say that it offers a quality picture. It is bright and has excellent contrast. It's a real pleasure to watch your favourite movies, videos or games on it.


The Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, which is characterized by average performance. A good impression is that even at 120 Hz screen refresh the device runs smoothly and quickly. This can not be said unequivocally in resource-intensive games. The maximum graphics settings are testing. We therefore advise you to lower them. The Adreno 642L video accelerator is responsible for the graphics.

This Samsung model is not gaming, but it provides comfort in most mobile games. It also supports 5G networks. By buying it, you won't have to look for a new model in a year or two as you need faster mobile internet.


There are three cameras on the back panel of the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G. The main unit is 64-megapixel and is complemented by a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5-megapixel one designed for macro shots.

When shooting in daylight with the main camera, you can expect quality footage. It focuses quickly on subjects and small details don't blur against the general background. The quality is good for the price of the device. The tests start with the reduction of ambient light and when shooting in artificial light. You can, of course, take advantage of the night mode. It will slightly improve the details.

The selfie camera on the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is 32-megapixel. Its algorithm works well in normal light. In artificial light, the skin tone is slightly exaggerated.

This Samsung model cannot be described as specifically designed for taking photos and videos. It offers decent results, but not stunning ones.

Autonomous operation

As we mentioned above, long battery life is among the main advantages of M series smartphones. This is why the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is the answer to the demands of anyone who wants to reach for the charger less often. Even under high load - gaming, social networking, videos, web browsing and more, the smartphone lasts almost a day. With more moderate use, you can count on two days or more.

Underneath the beautiful look of the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G lies a non-removable 5000 mAh battery. It charges using the included 25W charger. From 0 to 100% you can restore the charge in about an hour and a half. If you decide to buy a more powerful charger, for example with 33 W, you will recharge the battery even faster. For example, in about half an hour.


The Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is a modern take on the South Korean manufacturer's M-series in 2021. It has quite a few advantages that make it superior to competitors on the market. It can't help but win you over with its beautiful screen, good set of cameras and amazing autonomous performance.

It also supports fast charging technology and 5G networking.
