Samsung Galaxy A52 smartphone review: Significantly more affordable without 5G

SoC from 2019. Those who can live without 5G will be able to get the Samsung Galaxy A52 for about 70 Euros (~$85) less, depending on the configuration. While there is still an older SoC, the option to choose between two storage configurations continues to be available. Our test evaluates the capabilities of the more powerful of the two.

Samsung Galaxy A52

While the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G is equipped with a more current SoC, the Galaxy A51 predecessor model was still equipped with an Exynos 9611. With the LTE version of the Galaxy A52, the manufacturer stopped using that and now uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G instead. The internal Qualcomm Adreno 618 graphics unit is responsible for the display of image content, and there are 8 GB of RAM as well as 256 GB of internal storage.

With this equipment, the Samsung Galaxy A52 LTE must compete against the smartphones listed below. Below each of the sections, you can also add more devices from our database into the comparison.

Case - Samsung Galaxy A52 4G with IP67

Samsung has manufactured the back and frame of the Galaxy A52 from plastic, but given a metallic-looking surface to the frame. The workmanship is basically fine, and like the Galaxy A52 5G, the LTE version is also dust and waterproof according to the IP67 standard. In terms of the color choices, there are again black, white, blue, and violet. The front is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

With a weight of 189 grams (~6.7 oz), the A52 LTE is slightly heavier than the Galaxy A51 predecessor model. The size dimensions have also slightly increased, placing the Samsung Galaxy A52 LTE at the same level as comparable devices.

Equipment - The Galaxy smartphone offers a storage card slot

In addition to the hardware already mentioned, Samsung has also equipped the Galaxy A52 LTE with a hybrid slot, allowing you to either insert two NanoSIM cards or a single NanoSIM and a microSD card. Both SIM slots support VoLTE and VoWLAN. A USB-C slot at the bottom allows you to charge the smartphone and is able to transfer data with the USB-2.0 standard.

There is also a 3.5-mm audio port, and a plugged-in headset will act as an antenna for the integrated FM radio. The Camera2 API is enabled at Level 3, and DRM Wideviene L1 is also supported.

Software - A smoothly running One UI 3.1

The Samsung Galaxy A52 LTE uses an Android 11 system with Samsung's inhouse One UI 3.1 user interface and security patches on the level of February 1, 2021. While the system visually resembles a pure Android, Samsung uses an adjusted menu navigation and numerous of its own apps that offer additional functionality in combination with a user account. Besides Facebook, OneDrive, and Netflix, there are no additional preinstalled apps from third-party vendors. However, the preinstalled apps can only be deactivated but not uninstalled.

Communication and GNSS - Only Wi-Fi 5, but with NFC

The Galaxy A52 LTE is able to connect to the mobile GSM, 3G, and LTE networks. The available frequency bands are identical to those of the Samsung Galaxy A51 predecessor model. With NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, and Wi-Fi 5, the equipment for communication in closer proximity also remains identical.

This is also the reason for the data transfer rates hardly differing in our WLAN test. Using our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router, the A52 LTE achieves an average of 310 Mbit/s when receiving data and 282 Mbit/s when sending data. These results are sufficient for a place in the lower middle of our test field.

The Samsung Galaxy A52 is able to determine its location using GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and Galileo. With the "GPS Test" app, we determine an accuracy of up to 3 m (~10 ft) outdoors. However, determining the location indoors is not possible.

During our mandatory bike tour, the A52 LTE was slightly more accurate in the recording of our route than our Garmin Edge 500 reference device.

Telephone Functions and Voice Quality - Samsung smartphone with a clear connection

The Telephone app of the Galaxy A52 LTE offers quick access to the number pad, the list of recent calls, and stored contacts. During the phone conversation, the voices of both conversation partners are clear and easy to understand. Additional environment noises are filtered out reliably. The volume is sufficient to allow making phone calls even in louder surroundings.

Cameras - With 64 MP and a depth sensor

Picture taken with the front camera
Picture taken with the front camera

The front camera of the Galaxy A52 LTE offers a resolution of up to 32 MP. However, in the standard settings, pictures are recorded at 8 MP in the 3:4 format due to pixel binning. In daylight conditions, the image quality is good, and the front camera will also succeed in taking detailed recordings indoors. Colors are reproduced fairly natural, and the difference between light and dark image areas is also even.

The main camera records images using a 64-MP sensor that is accompanied by a 5-MP sensor for depth information. Pictures taken with this show many details and natural colors, with their quality being equally good for close-ups and panorama recordings. Ultra-wide angle recordings are created using a 12-MP sensor. In good light conditions, they only show some slight blurriness at the edges of the picture, and details are slightly less varied. In addition, there is also a 5-MP sensor for macro images. If you use the zoom to bring the objects closer, this only happens via software. At 5x zoom level, the images look blurry and many details are lost. In low-light conditions, the main sensor makes good use of the remaining light and is able to take a recognizable picture of our test object. A professional mode also offers individual adjustments of the image parameters.

Videos recorded with the main camera show a similar quality as our test pictures. You can select among the UHD resolution at 30 fps, FHD at 30 or 60 fps, and HD at 30 fps. A professional video mode also allows you to make some detailed adjustments of the image quality here.

Accessories and Warranty - No extras in the box

The box of the Galaxy A52 includes only a USB charger with the corresponding USB-C cable. However, you can purchase additional accessories from the Samsung website.

The manufacturer offers a warranty period of 24 months to buyers of the Galaxy A52.

Input Devices and Operation - Face recognition and a fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy A52 LTE

Samsung uses its own inhouse keyboard app, which offers similar features as Google's GBoard. The touchscreen responds very reliably to inputs, and drag-and-drop movements also succeed effortlessly.

To unlock the A52 LTE, users can choose between face recognition and the optical fingerprint reader that is integrated in the display. While both methods work reliably in our test, an ultrasound sensor would have been better.

Display - SuperAMOLED with 90 Hz

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The display of the Samsung Galaxy A52 LTE consists of a 6.5-inch SuperAMOLED panel that offers a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. With its maximum brightness of 649 cd/m² in the center of the screen, the smartphone achieves second place in our test field. In the APL50 test, the value increases to 905 cd/m², but without the activated light sensor it only reaches 329 cd/m². The lowest adjustable brightness level is at 1.56 cd/m².

In terms of PWM, we measure frequencies between 176.1 and 183.8 Hz across the whole spectrum of brightness. These values are relatively low and might lead to some problems for users with sensitive eyes. The amplitude curve and frequency level also suggest that DC dimming is constantly active. This would explain the low frequencies as being double the frame rate, which can be adjusted in the menu to either 60 or 90 Hz. There is also an eye comfort mode, which automatically adjusts the color temperature.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 183.8 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 183.8 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 183.8 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17043 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

As typical for OLED displays, the contrast ratio and black value are excellent. In addition, colors are displayed very balanced, with the Settings menu allowing you to influence the color reproduction by choosing the "Vivid" or "Natural" color profiles. These profiles mainly have an effect on the contrast and available color space.

If you use the "Vivid" color profile, the image contents will display with more vivid and saturated colors, while in the "Natural" profile, the colors are a little less intrusive and the image appears a little more subdued.

Samsung uses UFS 2.1 storage in the Galaxy A52, but its read and write rates don't turn out quite as high as those of the Galaxy A52 5G. Perhaps the storage controller of the SoC might limit the available speed here.

Games - Fluctuations in the frame rate

The Samsung Galaxy A52 LTE is able to smoothly play games with medium demands on the graphics performance. While very high frame rates are also possible with the "Armajet" game that we tested using Gamebench, they were fluctuating a lot. In more demanding games, the frame rates can only be maintained evenly over a longer time period at reduced detail levels.

Under load, the surfaces of the A52 LTE warm up to a maximum of 36.6 °C (98 °F). This means that the smartphone never gets too hot and can always be used without any problems. However, as the two Manhattan 3.1 and ES 2.0 GFXBench constant load tests show, the performance drops by about 12% under longer-lasting loads.

With 99.6% in the stress test of 3DMark Wildlife, the Samsung smartphone achieves a very good result in the stability of the performance.
