Samsung Galaxy M32 4G smartphone review – A bright 90-Hz screen for less than 300 Euros (~$345)

Shrunken battery. Even though the Samsung Galaxy M32 is more expensive than its predecessor, it only offers a smaller battery and doesn't support 5G. Is the Samsung smartphone still up to date with this equipment for the 300+ Euros (~345) asking price?

Samsung's Galaxy M series has a strange intermediate position in the portfolio of the Korean manufacturer. On the one hand, it stands in direct competition to the Galaxy A series that also covers the complete mid-range and on the other, it is often available exclusively from selected vendors for several months. With its sometimes-high battery capacity and various interesting equipment, it represents an interesting extension of Samsung's mid-range offerings.

The Samsung Galaxy M32 is the successor of the Galaxy M31, which was particularly attractive due to its large battery and great AMOLED display. The newest model also offers a high-quality display and this time with a 90-Hz refresh rate. However, the battery has become significantly smaller. Now, the Galaxy M32 has to prove itself in our tests whether it is really better than its predecessor.

Case – Light and made of plastic

With pinstripes on the back and colorful light refractions of our dark blue test unit, the Galaxy M32 does feel like an upgrade compared to its predecessor. The fingerprint sensor has moved to the side, so that the back is now only interrupted by the camera module. The dark version continues to be very susceptible to fingerprints due to the shiny surface.

The color alternatives are bright blue and white, but in central Europe not all variants are available from all vendors. The case shows solid workmanship, and the smartphone is comfortable to hold with its rounded corners.

At a weight of 180 g (~6.3 oz), the Galaxy M32 is also fairly light. The smaller battery compared to the predecessor becomes noticeable here. Even though the Galaxy M32 is only a mid-size smartphone, it might still be too large for really small hands.

Equipment: Lots of storage space but only eMMC

In terms of storage equipment, the Galaxy M32 is competitive in its price class. There is now 128 GB of eMMC storage space, which is twice as much as in the predecessor but the standard is also slower. This is accompanied by an ample 6 GB of RAM. 

NFC also continues to be onboard, allowing you to use mobile payment and other services. The USB-C port supports only support the USB-2.0 standard, but this is normal in this price class.

Software: Samsung promises an upgrade to Android 12 soon

The Galaxy M32 has Android 11 with Samsung's in-house One UI 3.1 preinstalled. According to Samsung, there will be an update to Android 12 and One UI 4 in June 2022. At the time of our testing, the security patches are on the level of November 2021, so they are already a little older.

While you will be confronted with the preinstalled apps from Samsung, Microsoft, Meta, and Spotify, most of them can be uninstalled without any problems, if you prefer a clean system.

Communication and GNSS: No 5G in the Galaxy M32

5G continues to be unsupported by the Samsung smartphone even though, at this point, you can get smartphones for less than 300 Euros (~$345) that support the fast Internet, such as the Nokia G50, the Poco M4 Pro, or the in-house Galaxy A22 5G. While a Galaxy M32 version with 5G is available in some parts of the world, it is currently not available in Europe.

The number of supported 4G frequencies is decent and should also be sufficient for some travel abroad. However, since the Galaxy M32 is not a world phone, you should still find out ahead of time whether the smartphone is indeed capable of accessing mobile networks at your travel destination.

Our spot check of the smartphone reception shows that the Galaxy M32 offers a decent signal quality indoors as well as outdoors near the city, even though it is lower than that of some of our comparison devices.

The smartphone supports Wi-Fi 5 and shows stable, high transfer rates that are at the class level in the tests with our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router.

The GPS takes a bit of time when we step outdoors. While it recognizes the satellites initially, the signal quality is insufficient to locate us. Only after restarting the device, could it locate us with an accuracy of 4 m (~13 ft.) after some time. Also, the number of satellites it recognizes isn't particularly high.

When taken for a bike ride, the Samsung Galaxy M32 has some problems. It only records a usable route after the second try, but that is at least fairly accurate. During the first time, it couldn't find a route at all, even though our comparison GPS in the Garmin Venu 2 smartwatch didn't have any problems. Therefore, those who need to rely on navigation features should avoid the Galaxy M32.

Telephone functions and voice quality: Clear but not very loud

The phone app of the Samsung Galaxy M32 supports all important standards including VoLTE and VoWiFi.

We evaluate the voice quality by making several test calls. While our conversation partner attests a good voice reproduction of the microphone, it is marred by various annoying noises.

We hear the voice of our conversation partner clearly, but it isn't particularly loud. The sound is fairly similar using the built-in speaker, but you can also speak at a slightly lower volume here. In quiet surroundings, the microphone still records our voice reliably.

Cameras: Full-HD videos only

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

The Galaxy M32 uses a 64 MP lens in the main camera. By default, it records images at a 16 MP resolution, combining 4 pixels into one in order to be able to reach a higher light sensitivity. However, those who prefer can also use the full number of megapixels.

There is also an 8 MP wide-angle lens and a 2 MP macro lens, as well as a support camera for blurring the depth information in portrait recordings.

The main camera produces fairly sharp images both outdoors and in good light conditions while also reproducing the details reliably. While the dynamic range is acceptable for this price class, it isn't exceptional.

In low-light conditions and with high contrasts, the camera does well in reproducing details, but some of the darker areas are not illuminated sufficiently.

The wide-angle lens takes decent pictures, but some of the larger areas do not appear cleanly and small details are hardly recognizable.

Videos can be recorded at a maximum of 1080p and 30 fps while, at this point, 4K videos are standard with some other devices in this price class. You cannot switch between the wide-angle and the standard lens while recording. In addition, the videos suffer from pronounced stuttering of the image that is particularly visible with faster movements around the edges of objects.

Under controlled light conditions in our lab, the pictures from the main camera turn out a bit pale and with too little contrast. While some separate details are still visible at only 1 Lux light, a good illumination looks different than that.

Accessories and warranty: Slow charger

The box of the Galaxy M32 includes a SIM tool, a USB cable, and a charger. However, the latter is annoying since it only charges at a maximum of 15 W, even though the manufacturer advertises the smartphone with a maximum charging capability of 25 W.

For this, you would need a different charger that you either already have at home or would need to buy. We had a hard time finding a corresponding charger on the German website for Samsung, but at least you can get the right charger at amazon.com at an affordable price.

Samsung offers a 24-month warranty to European customers. In case of a repair, you can either send your device in or bring it to one of the numerous repair points. Outside the warranty, there are fixed charges for repairs in Germany that you can check in advance on the website.

Input Devices and operation: Reliable fingerprint sensor

The system appears a little more responsive due to the 90 Hz screen, but it is still not very fast overall. The touchscreen can be operated reliably.

The hardware buttons on the right are made of plastic. They offer a good and clear pressure point. The slightly recessed standby button also includes the integrated fingerprint sensor. This responds fairly quickly and reliably when you place a finger on it, and the phone is unlocked promptly.

While the predecessor also included an OLED screen with expanded Full-HD resolution, the maximum refresh rate of 90 Hz is new in the Galaxy M32. This makes movements on the screen look smoother, for example, when scrolling websites, and the system appears more responsive overall.

At an average brightness of 720 cd/m², the display appears quite bright. None of the comparison devices offer such high brightness. Thanks to OLED technology, you don't have to worry about the black value. Since the individual pixels can be turned off completely and there is no background illumination, black appears infinitively dark in theory, which also causes other colors to look more vibrant.

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 362.3 Hz ≤ 99 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 362.3 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 99 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 362.3 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

In our measurements with the spectrophotometer and the CalMAN software, we determine that the smartphone is able to reproduce colors and grayscale fairly accurately in the "Natural" color mode. There are only slightly higher deviations in bright green color tones and bright red. So, those who have to depend on accurate colors will receive a usable display.

We measure some PWM and it is also used at fairly high brightness level. The curve in the oscilloscope hardly changes, so the Galaxy M32 appears to have a fairly simple PWM brightness control.

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
8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5 ms rise
↘ 3 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
10 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7 ms rise

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

With its screen becoming quite bright, you can easily use the smartphone outdoors. Even on sunny days, there are hardly any problems and you only have to look for a shady place when the sun shines directly on the display.

The smartphone owes its highly stable viewing angles to AMOLED technology, so you can read the display from any position without any noticeable color changes.

Performance: Not much power in the class comparison

The SoC of the smartphone is the MediaTek Helio G80. Since it is already almost three years old at the time of this test, we would have wished for a more modern processor for the Galaxy M32. In terms of the processor performance, the Galaxy M32 is only barely ahead of its predecessor but at least the gap becomes wider when it comes to graphics performance. That being said, the Moto G60s and the Redmi Note 10S are significantly more powerful smartphones in this price range.

In everyday operation, this often translates into some waiting with the Galaxy M32. Starting up the smartphone already takes some time. When demanding apps are running, even adjusting the volume requires some patience. While those who only use simple apps such as WhatsApp or the Internet browser won't have to worry, some slightly more demanding apps may cause the device to start sweating.

When surfing the Internet, the Galaxy M32 doesn't make such a bad impression in its class. But in everyday operation, it might take a while until a web page is loaded and you might have to wait even longer until the images are loaded.

* ... smaller is better

We do not understand why Samsung only uses eMMC memory, since the predecessor already had faster memory. This contributes to the sluggish impression of the system overall.

Games: 60 Hz gaming on the 90-Hz screen

You won't get real 90 Hz gaming with the Samsung Galaxy M32, at least not in the games that we tested. Armajet, which really doesn't pose high demands, reaches a stable 60 Hz, which makes it easily playable — just not at a smooth 90 Hz.

In the more demanding PUBG Mobile, we measure around 30 fps at high settings and around 40 fps at lower settings. This makes the shooter just barely playable at high settings, and you still cannot avoid the occasional stutter. We measured frame rates with the GameBench software suite.

The control via touchscreen and position sensor works without any problems in our tests.

Emissions: Limited warming

Temperature

Under longer load, the Samsung smartphone can get fairly warm at times, and we measure 43.5 °C (110.3 °F) at the bottom as the maximum temperature. While this is noticeable, it is not problematic. However, those who happen to carry the smartphone to higher temperature environments should be aware that the heat development of the smartphone could become critical under load.

Speaker

The small mono speaker of the Samsung smartphone doesn't get very loud. Perhaps this is the reason for the highs not to sound uncomfortably over-emphasized. However, the sound is still very bright, and music fans shouldn't plan on longer listening sessions using the speaker.

On the other hand, you can use Bluetooth or the 3.5 mm audio port to connect external audio devices. This works without any trouble and the sound is transferred clearly. While the aptX codec is supported, the more modern ones such as aptX HD or aptX Adaptive are not.

Power Consumption

When we look a little closer at the power consumption of the Samsung Galaxy M32, we notice that the smartphone is overall significantly more efficient than its Galaxy M31 predecessor. However, the Moto G60s and Redmi Note 10S are even more efficient.

Particularly under medium and high load, the Galaxy M32 uses more power than some comparison devices. This might be due to the brighter display but could also be because of the overall power management.
