Samsung Galaxy A54 5G review - A powerful, mid-range smartphone with many upgrades

Really awesome? The Galaxy A54 5G is the poster child for Samsung's mid-range devices. Our review highlights upgrades over last year's model, especially the SoC, display brightness, a new sensor for the main camera as well as eSIM support. The smartphone's design has also been given an overhaul and is reminiscent of the Galaxy S series.

The Galaxy A54 5G spearheads Samsung's mid-range 2023 models and is the direct successor to the Galaxy A53 5G. Unlike the high-end series, the manufacturer remains committed to its own processors and has opted for the new Exynos 1380, now with more RAM at its disposal. A lot has also happened with the camera: The depth camera is gone, and the A54 has received a 50 MP sensor instead of the 64 MP one which should result in significantly better images under poor lighting conditions.

The storage configurations are almost identical; the only difference is that the 128 GB and 256 GB models have 8 GB of RAM at their disposal. Unfortunately, everything is more expensive. The small variant now costs $449 (RRP, + $30) and the larger version, $499 (+ $20).

Case - The A54 speaks the same design language as the Galaxy S23

Visually, the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G is reminiscent of the Galaxy S23+ but, at 83 percent, it has a worse display-to-body ratio. The Samsung smartphone comes in the colors Awesome Lime, Black, Violet and White with our review model being the violet version.

The Galaxy A54 has an accent colour aluminium frame and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and rear of the device.  The camera's three lenses protrude by 2.1 millimeters and cause the smartphone to wobble quite considerably on a flat surface. However, this can be compensated for by using an optional protective case.

Attempts to twist the Galaxy A54 5G are met with resistance, and only slight creaking can be heard. Thanks to AMOLED technology, the display is not overly sensitive to pressure and, as such, no waves can be seen when pressing firmly on the panel. We were impressed with the build quality which is characterized by a tight, smooth fit and finish. Only the card slot's covers are not completely flush and stick out a little on the left side of our review model. Otherwise, the A54 makes a very premium impression.

The Samsung smartphone's battery is fitted securely inside the device making it impossible to be swapped by the user. The intrusion of dust and water is prevented thanks to IP67 certification. But, in terms of sustainability, Samsung has to be held responsible, because the smartphone not only comes with a plastic film covering the frame but is also wrapped in a clear plastic film. This would surely have also been possible by using fewer resources.

Features - The Galaxy A54 5G has a speedy microSD slot

The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G might not have a 3.5 mm headphone jack as this job is managed by the USB-C port, providing a suitable adapter is used. Of course, USB headphones do not require this. Data transfer takes place via USB 2.0, however, wired video output through this port is not possible. Likewise, OTG is also supported meaning peripheral devices and external storage media can be connected. In testing, we tried this with an external SSD but the A54 unfortunately informed us that an external power source was necessary. The smartphone itself cannot provide enough power. However, a USB stick was not a problem.

Bluetooth has been upgraded to the latest 5.3 version and an NFC chip is also on board.

MicroSD card reader

In this price category, a microSD card slot is actually no longer obligatory which means the A54 is all the better for having one. Additionally, we are dealing with a comparatively fast one which impressed us not only with its consistently high data speeds but also due to possessing the exFAT file system. 

A minor downside is that this is a hybrid slot. This means the user could have to decide between a memory card and a physical SIM card.

Software - The Galaxy A54 5G will even get Android 17

The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G comes with Google Android 13 as well as its in-house UI, One 5.1. Just like the expensive, high-end smartphones, the device will receive four major Android updates and five years of security patches (as of the smartphone"s launch date). At the time of testing, these were up-to-date, as of April 1st, 2023. In the first four years, monthly patches will be distributed with this changing to quarterly in the final year. 

In addition to Google's apps, various Samsung apps are also preinstalled, including Galaxy Store. Third-party offerings such as Spotify, Netflix, Meta and Microsoft are also available but not all of them can be completely uninstalled, some can only be deactivated. 

Communication and GNSS - Now with Wi-Fi 6

When it comes to mobile connectivity, the Galaxy A54 is almost entirely unchanged compared to its predecessor. Only a 5G frequency band has been added and, with good coverage, there shouldn't be any problems connecting to the network in many non-European countries. 

In terms of Wi-Fi, there is one major update as the Samsung smartphone now also finally supports Wi-Fi 6 with VHT80. This ensures high data transfer rates, although when sending data we measured a temporary drop in data transfer speed in conjunction with our reference router, the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000. However, in practice, this shouldn't be noticeable. The Xiaomi 13 Lite is even faster, twice as fast, in actual fact, due to VHT160, but is similarly unable to make use of the 6 GHz network.

Even indoors, the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G manages a quick and accurate satellite fix. Outdoors, this also takes place with exemplary precision. The Samsung smartphone supports most common satellite systems, albeit mostly only one band. 

On a short bike tour, we compared the A54 to the Garmin Venu 2. On the entire trip, measuring almost ten kilometres, the difference in the distance covered was only ten meters. A glance at the route details also confirmed that the A54 5G has similar accuracy to that of Garmin's fitness smartwatch making it perfectly suitable for location-based tasks.

Telephone functionality and call quality

Telephone app
Bixby text call

The Galaxy A54 5G is the first smartphone in Samsungs mid-range that has an eSIM. This means that dual-SIM functionality is possible even if a microSD card occupies the second physical nano-SIM slot. However, functions such as SIP account management are not integrated into the system. 

With the device held to the ear, we were very impressed with the call quality. Communication is very natural at both ends and noise cancelling filters out any sources of unwanted noise. In speaker mode, reverberation is almost entirely absent and the microphones are able to pick out voices clearly from a distance of two meters. 

Cameras - Galaxy A54 comes with a good triple-camera system

A selfie with the Galaxy A54

In terms of the front-facing camera, nothing has changed on paper. Once again, Samsung has opted for a 32 MP lens which uses pixel binning. This means it can capture 8 MP images. Under good lighting conditions, the quality is very good and impressed us thanks to balanced colors and a decent level of detail. Videos can be recorded in Ultra HD at 30fps.

On the rear of the device, depth cameras have been removed and the 64 MP sensor found in the Galaxy A53 has had to make way for the new 50 MP one. This ought to deliver better results, especially in poor lighting conditions and it also has optical image stabilisation (OIS) at its disposal. As expected, Samsung uses pixel binning with this sensor so that the final images are 12.5 MP in size. However, the full resolution can also be used. The following aspect ratios are available: 4:3, 16:9, and 1:1.

Macro lens capture

In tests, the quality of the A54's main camera was impressive and delivered pleasing daylight photos. A slightly red hue is visible but only at maximum magnification and in direct comparison. In addition, the depth of field is somewhat fuzzy. In our field of competitors, the Pixel 6a handles this better. In low light, the results are even richer in contrast compared to their predecessor but appear heavily post-processed. Nevertheless, the subject's balanced light distribution is impressive.     

The ultra wide-angle lens is capable of decent overall composition but the low resolution is evident even when only slightly magnified. Details and clear contours are missing, especially when it comes to depth. Similarly, that applies to the macro lens. Magnifications are only done digitally. Despite this, 10x zoom is possible although the quality thereof leaves a lot to be desired. Even at 5x zoom, many chromatic aberrations are present.

At best, videos can be recorded with the main camera in Ultra HD at 30fps. Alternatively, Full HD at up to 60fps is available. Anyone wishing to use Super Stabilization will find they are even limited to 1080p at 30fps. The digital video stabilization (VDIS) operates at 833 Hz and, in doing so, is more powerful than the Galaxy A34 5G's (500 Hz) offering. Apparently, this helps counteract blurring and distortions caused by movement and is primarily made possible by increasing the shutter speed. It's a pity that common frame rates such as 24fps cannot be selected in the app. Likewise, the 21:9 format is also not available.

For the most part, the Galaxy A54 5G's main camera mostly demonstrates impressive imaging performance, in controlled lighting conditions. The red hue isn't even noticeable and ColorChecker passport colors are reproduced quite well. Only dark green is brightened too much and achieves a DeltaE of 20.

The test chart in the center of the image was captured in great detail by the camera, however, outdoors, blurriness can soon appear.

Features and guarantee - Much of it is optional

Galaxy A54 with modest extras

The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G possesses a 24-month manufacturer's guarantee and can be extended to include the Care+ insurance package. This can be booked for one or two years and, additionally, it can also include theft insurance. Depending on the chosen package, the price sits between $49 and $149. Up to two damage claims can be made per year for which an additional service fee of $49 or $99 (theft) is charged. Anyone choosing the A54 Enterprise Edition receives, amongst other things, one year's additional guarantee.

Out-of-the-box, the device only comes with a USB cable as well as a small tool for opening the card slot. Optional accessories are available from Samsung and other third-party suppliers. 

Input devices & operation - Complete with an in-display optical fingerprint sensor

Samsung does not put a screen protector on the display direct from the factory. The Corning Gorilla Glass 5 is smooth to the touch and the Galaxy A54's capacitive touchscreen responds precisely to inputs.

An in-display optical fingerprint sensor is responsible for biometric security and although it recognizes the user's saved digits reliably, we would have preferred it to be a little faster. Optionally or additionally, the front-facing camera can be used for face recognition. However, this is faster but somewhat less secure. 

Once again, the function or power button has been pre-assigned to Samsung's Bixby assistant. This can be switched off and returned to the classic option in the settings. On top of that, the button can be customized so that a double button press opens the camera or any other designated app. 

The Galaxy A54's vibration motor works very quietly and with delicate haptic feedback, something we very much appreciated. The vibration strength can also be customised in the settings. 

 

Display - An extremely bright 120 Hz Super AMOLED

PWM comparison with the Magic5 Pro

The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G possesses a 6.4-inch, FullHD+, Super AMOLED panel, running at up to 120 Hz. The dynamic adaptive refresh rate is limited to automatic switching between 60 and 120 Hz. Alternatively, this can be set to a fixed 60 Hz. The smartphone supports the HDR standards HLG, HDR10+ as well as HDR10. Likewise, an always-on-display can also be configured.

The brightness has improved considerably compared to last year's Galaxy A53. With a pure white display and the ambient light sensor activated, the A54's panel achieved an average of 935 cd/m² and is illuminated very evenly. With an even split of light and dark areas (APL18), we were able to measure a peak brightness of 1390 cd/m². Set to manual, up to 433 cd/m² is possible.

At minimum display brightness, an irregular display flickering between 120 and 253 Hz is present and is something which could cause eye strain. However, if the brightness is increased only minimally, the panel switches to a very consistent periodic curve of 240 Hz which should be significantly easier on the eyes. The PWM comparison (see photo) with the Magic5 Pro shows that at the lowest brightness settings, the Galaxy A54 doesn't implement any significant DC dimming techniques in order to protect the user's eyes.

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 253 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 253 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 253 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17682 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The Galaxy A54's panel achieves its most natural color reproduction when Natural display mode is selected. However, the panel then selects the smaller sRGB color space. In the Vivid mode preset, the image appears cooler and colors seem slightly less saturated, albeit using the larger DCI P3 color space.

The Pixel 6a and the Xperia 10 IV manage to display gray scales and colors more accurately, although we doubt whether this is visible to the naked eye.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1.67 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.874 ms rise
↘ 0.791 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 5 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1.55 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.775 ms rise
↘ 0.7755 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.5 ms).

Outdoors, the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G is impressive and remains easily legible due to its high brightness, even on sunny days. At most, reflections can be considered a little annoying.

In this category, the Xiaomi 13 Lite and the Motorola Edge 30 Fusion get similarly bright.

The Galaxy A54's viewing angle stability is very good and only suffers a minimal drop in brightness without any inverted colors when viewed from a wide angle. Only a visible green shimmer is visible but that is common in many OLEDs.

Performance - Only minimal benefits due to the new Exynos 1380

The Galaxy A54 5G has gone for its in-house Samsung Exynos 1380 chipset with 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The SoC is very similar to its predecessor, the Exynos 1280 which, for example, can be found in the Galaxy A53. However, Samsung has reorganised the two clusters: Two energy-saving cores have been removed and have, instead, been replaced by two additional Cortex-A78 cores, promising a boost in performance.

In Geekbench 5.4, the CPU's single-core performance sits at a similar level due to an almost identical clock speed but there is a whopping 50 percent boost in multi-core performance. Notably, the Exynos 1380 can also outperform the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 found in the Xiaomi 13 Lite. However, the A54 has no chance compared to the Pixel 6a's Tensor.

That is also similar in the area of system benchmarks with the Samsung smartphone only managing to rise to the top of the pack in PCMark. In everyday use, the Galaxy A54 impresses due to its generally smooth performance although that is not without the appearance of an occasional stutter.

Samsung has also fine-tuned the graphics chip and even given the Exynos 1280's Mali-G68 MP4 an additional core. In accordance with mathematical rules (and something which the benchmarks confirm), the ARM Mali-G68 MP5 enjoys a performance boost of between 25 and 30 percent over its predecessor. Although, this is not enough to top the Adreno 644 found in the Xiaomi 13 Lite. That chip is an additional 23 percent faster.
