Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G

79.3% Samsung Galaxy A32 5G review: There's more than just progress in the 5G smartphone | Notebookcheck
The Galaxy A32 5G offers a large 6.5-inch display, a big battery, a modern MediaTek SoC, and a quad-camera setup. However, it can't always outperform its predecessor, and it offers a narrower set of features than some of its rivals.
80% Samsung Galaxy A32 5G review: An incredible value
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Galaxy A32 5G is a great phone for the price. It has notable drawbacks, like the display and performance, but it impressed me with its battery life. The cameras are pretty good for $280, but for $70 more, you can get the excellent Pixel 4a and its incredible camera. Granted, you lose 5G, but you also get a noticeably better display, too. And with Samsung’s great software update policy, the Galaxy A32 will last you for a few years before it hits end-of-life. There’s a lot to be said for that, and it helps make the A32 an easy recommendation for 5G on the cheap. The Galaxy A32 5G is good enough at most things and it packs a punch. That’s all you can ask for sometimes.

For its price, the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G checks off nearly all the boxes for what we want in a budget phone. It handles all basic tasks with ease, has excellent battery life, will receive multiple Android upgrades, and has a decent camera stack. Its only real weak point is its low-resolution display. But unless you’re a gamer or planning to use your phone for Netflix binges, it likely won't bother you. Ultimately, the screen is vivid and bright, and you won't notice any pixelation unless your nose is up against it. If you’re looking for a budget phone with a higher-resolution display, the OnePlus Nord N200 5G is a great choice, though its camera isn't as capable as the Galaxy A32 5G's, and it will only get one Android upgrade. That means you won't find a better sub-$300 5G phone than the Galaxy A32 5G, and for that it earns our Editors' Choice award.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G Review: The best sub-$300 phone in the US
Source: XDA Developers English
The Galaxy A32 5G is one of the most impressive budget phones right now. It definitely has a few sore points, like the low display resolution and poor quality secondary cameras, and Samsung should be promising at least three years of major Android updates (like with the Galaxy S21, Galaxy A52, etc.). However, the rest of the package is impressive for under $300. The battery life is excellent, the performance was faster than I was expecting, and the 90Hz refresh rate keeps the phone super-smooth. This phone’s main competition in the United States is the 2021 Moto G Power, which retails for $230 — $50 less than the Galaxy A32 5G. That phone has similar performance with a Snapdragon 665 and 4GB RAM, plus a higher-resolution (60Hz-only) screen.

75% Samsung Galaxy A32 5G Review: 5G On A Budget

Of course, if you only plan to hold on to your phone for a couple of years, then the N10 5G is worth strongly considering. If that’s the case, then 5G becomes a less important feature, too. If there’s room in your budget, consider the $349 Google Pixel 4A, which will get you a much better camera, cleaner software, and timely updates over the next couple of years, albeit without support for 5G at all. It’s a much smaller device, though. So if a big screen is part of the A32 5G’s appeal, you might want to look at something like the $279 Motorola Moto G Stylus.

However, the A32 5G biggest folly is that Samsung went about creating it by taking its good-value sibling and cramming 5G into the mix, without really inflating the budget price point. This has resulted in a phone with an unfortunately-downgraded LCD display, in particular, among other things. It is the single biggest gripe we have with the Galaxy A32 5G, since it just fails to live up to current market standards. It's as simple as that. All things considered, the Galaxy A32 5G is currently one of the cheapest Samsung phones with 5G on offer. Until the Galaxy A22 5G becomes a thing. If it is absolutely imperative for you to get a budget 5G Samsung, in particular, today, then the A32 5G is the way to go. Otherwise, we would probably hold off a bit or consider alternatives for better value.

75% Samsung Galaxy A32 5G review: A phone for today and tomorrow
Source: Android Police English
I think there will be a lot of comparison shopping between the Nord N10 5G and the Galaxy A32 5G. The phones occupy nearly identical price points ($280 vs. $300), and they both take a similar approach to specs and design. The key to making a decision between them is how long you plan on using your next phone. If this is just to tide you over for a year or so, the N10 5G may be the better choice — though keep in mind, The N10's 5G connectivity only works on T-Mobile. Blow-for-blow, the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G falls to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G — it feels slower than OnePlus' phone, has less RAM, less storage, a worse display, slower charging, and even slightly worse battery life in my experience. Samsung's software swings the pendulum back in its own way, though.

Feature-wise, the Galaxy A32 is not exactly the best. It does include a Micro SD card slot at the cost of your second SIM card and it does preserve its headphone jack. You also have 5G support but it’s limited to sub6 speeds so don’t expect blazing fast network speeds. Honestly, the best thing about this phone is its monstrous battery and One UI 3.0 from Samsung. In any other scenario, saving up just a bit more for the Galaxy A52 would be a much better option, especially if you need a better camera, display and would want water resistance. So the Samsung Galaxy A32 is a decent phone. It's not something we'd recommend because it would have been nice to have at least optical stabilization for making better videos and an OLED display, but we can certainly see how it can be useful if you need 5G and a big 2-day battery at a lower cost.
