Mid-range Galaxy A54 5G beats Galaxy S23 Ultra in reparability per test results posted by Samsung
Samsung is rumored to announce the Galaxy A54 5G at an Unpacked event scheduled for the end of March. So far, leaks point to a device with a design inspired by the Galaxy S22 Ultra, an Exynos 1380 SoC, 8 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of storage, an FHD display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, and up to €610 pricing for the highest end European model.
Now, Samsung France has, possibly by mistake, confirmed that the Galaxy A54 5G will not only be more reparable than the Galaxy A53 5G but will also trump the flagship Galaxy S23/S23 Ultra in terms of serviceability. The information in discussion comes from a reparability test result uploaded on Samsung France’s website.
Specifically, the Galaxy A54 5G scores highly for the price of spare parts, the availability and delivery times of parts, and readily available device documentation. However, the phone performs poorly when it comes to the ease of opening the smartphone for repairs owing to the tools needed and difficulty in disassembling the parts inside of the device.
That said, the reparability results published here are based on a specific French standard and may not reflect the serviceability of the phone in practice. Therefore, we have to wait for third-party repair guides such as those of iFixit to see how much better the device is in this regard.
