Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G

84.9% Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G smartphone review: With more power in its latest version | Notebookcheck
After only half a year, there's already an update available for one of Samsung's most popular mid-range smartphones: At first glance, the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G only offers an improvement in performance, but we took a closer look in the test and uncovered further differences.
Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G Review: Feature-Packed Yet Not Worthy
Source: Cashify English
The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is another mid-range device from Samsung that is being marketed as a 5G device, which is still not being rolled out in Inida. The phone offers solid camera performance, a faster processor, smooth and vibrant in-display good software, and above-average battery life. The device looks good on paper, has decent performance but the price of Rs. 35,999 is something is on the higher side and we have a lot of devices that offer better specs at about 20% less price than this. If you are a die hard Samsung fan only then you should get this device.

80% Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G review: The one that does all things right
Source: Gadgets Now English
While many will argue on the fact that other smartphones are offering more than the Galaxy A52s 5G, but looking closely, you’ll find that’s not entirely true. The Galaxy A52s 5G is basically the flagship of mid-range smartphones. It is always important to have a good balance between price and features and performance and features. What we mean is that merely offering features on paper or offering best-in-class internals does not guarantee the best possible performance. What matters most is that the features that are actually useful and work when needed. And, that’s where the Galaxy A52s 5G comes-in. It has got everything to qualify it as a good mid-range phone while knocking on the door for a flagship smartphone with its 120Hz display, IP67 water and dust resistance rating and more. So, if you are out there looking for a smartphone that’s an all-rounder and offers a complete package and a good balance between price, features and performance, then it’s among the best you’ve got.

80% Samsung Galaxy A52s review: Jack of all trades
Source: Android Authority English
The Samsung Galaxy A52s isn’t an exceptional phone, but it sure is a reliable one. You could fault the lack of a flagship-grade chipset, faster charging, or even better cameras, but that’s not what the phone is trying to achieve. Gamers and photographers have alternative options. The Samsung Galaxy A52s is a no-fuss phone that gets all the essentials right, and the performance upgrade keeps things moving along at a steadier clip than the Galaxy A52 5G. If you can find a model without the bloatware, you’re left with a well-supported phone that is an easy recommendation as a daily driver.

Samsung Galaxy A52s review: Upgrade brings 5G, performance boost, and more
Source: Business Standard English
Priced Rs 35,999 onwards, the Galaxy A52s brings incremental but meaningful upgrades over the predecessor. The smartphone is geared for 5G experience, but it is only as good as the ongoing model till 5G becomes available in India. For now, the phone’s performance and display are the only upgrades differentiating the user experience. That said, consider the Galaxy A52s if you plan to jump on to the 5G bandwagon before the availability of the network. Otherwise, the Galaxy A52 still makes a better choice, simply because it is inexpensive and has more or less the same features.

Galaxy A52s 5G review: A mid-range phone with flagship performance
Source: Sam Mobile English
The only thing that disappointed me about the A52s 5G is that Samsung didn’t switch out the macro camera at the rear for a telephoto lens. It’s the one feature that could have made the A52s a perfect mid-range phone, but I guess Samsung didn’t do it because it wants to continue selling the Galaxy A72 and also because it doesn’t want to encroach on the territory occupied by 2020’s Galaxy S20 FE. Still, if you’re in the market for a new 5G-enabled mid-range phone that performs like a flagship device without cutting too deep into your pockets, the Galaxy A52s 5G is a top-notch option you should seriously consider.

80% Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G review: A mid-range phone that ticks all boxes
Source: The Indian Express English
I like the Galaxy A52s 5G and if you are using an old Samsung phone with weaker cameras and less superior battery, I think you can consider buying this device. I absolutely loved the display, the longer battery life, and the quality of the pictures. It’s a large phone, so be aware of that. There’s a lot to like about this phone. I think the true value of the Galaxy A52s lies in its ability to cram in a lot of premium features at a much lower price point. It’s not cheap, though.

Samsung Galaxy A52s Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
If you prefer a device that provides amazing features with lots of customization support, then the Samsung Galaxy A52s smartphone is the best choice. You can also choose this option if you want to take pictures frequently and look for something in the mid-range flagship segment. Furthermore, the gaming experience and 5G performance are also decent. But there is always room for the alternative. So if you’re looking for an option, you can think of the OnePlus 9, which offers almost similar features to suit your needs.

70% Samsung Galaxy A52s review: a pricey affair with a few tricks up its sleeve
Source: 91mobiles English
The Samsung Galaxy A52s costs Rs 35,999 for the 6GB RAM variant and Rs 37,499 for the 8GB RAM variant respectively. For the price, the handset brings a stylish design, capable cameras and reliable performance to the mix. The smartphone’s software experience is quite gratifying too, and that IP67 rating is still something most rivals can’t offer. However, it’s hard to turn a blind eye to competing devices like the Realme GT, the iQOO 7 Legend etc, which offer better performance, faster charging speeds and more premium designs. Don’t get me wrong, the Galaxy A52s is a serviceable daily driver, however, the brand should’ve priced it a tad more aggressively.

Samsung Galaxy A52s First Impressions: Building on Performance
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Given its hardware, the Samsung Galaxy A52s seems like a solid contender that's placed between the higher end of the mid-range segment and the lower end of the premium segment. However, with the Realme GT (First Impressions) offering a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, and several other compelling options such as the OnePlus 9R (Review) and Xiaomi Mi 11X Pro (Review) also priced under Rs. 40,000, Samsung still appears to be targeting those who prioritise design. So, a lot depends on how the Galaxy A52s's cameras perform and whether they match up to the quality you can get from competing low-cost premium devices. This is one of the things I will test in detail, so stay tuned for the full review of the Samsung Galaxy A52s, which should be out soon.

Qualcomm Adreno 642: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 40% faster than the Adreno 620.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


81.63%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
