Samsung Galaxy M52 5G review - A powerful 120-Hz smartphone that is destined to fail?

More than 1000 Nits in the affordable mid-range. With its light build, 120-Hz OLED display, and 5000-mAh battery, the Galaxy M52 5G should be interesting not only for Galaxy fans, particularly since the Samsung smartphone also supports microSD cards and uses a powerful chipset with the Snapdragon 778G. But there is still a major drawback...
Marcus Herbrich, 👁 Florian Schmitt (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...
Samsung Galaxy M52 5G

One of the highlights of the Galaxy M52 5G might be the 6.7-inch Super-AMOLED Plus display, which offers a refresh rate of 120 Hz and an FHD+ resolution. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G used here, which is accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB internal UFS storage in the German version, is quite impressive at a recommended retail price of 379 Euros (~$431). 

In the recent past, the defining characteristic of the Galaxy M series was the relatively powerful battery. For example, the Galaxy M51 had a 7000-mAh battery. At a capacity of 5000 mAh, the battery of the Galaxy M52 5G is still fairly large but doesn't stand out from the masses anymore.

Find out in this review, how the newest mid-range smartphone from Samsung fares against the powerful competitors in this price segment, particularly the very similar Galaxy A52s 5G

Case - Galaxy M52 5G with a punch hole

Colors of the Galaxy M52 5G
Colors of the Galaxy M52 5G

We find the visual appearance of the Galaxy M52 5G very attractive. The 6.7-inch OLED display is framed by slim bezels on the side, and thanks to the punch hole, the bezel on top also turns out fairly slim, leading to an efficient display-to-surface ratio of almost 87% at the front of the device. However, compared to the Galaxy A52s 5G, there is some cost-cutting in terms of the display glass - or at least the Samsung M series smartphone doesn't use Gorilla Glass. 

Some more cost-cutting also becomes apparent in the case of the Galaxy M52 5G. The Samsung smartphone doesn't offer an IP certification, so that there is no protection from dust or splashes, and the metal frame of the A52s 5G was replaced with one of plastic in the Galaxy M52 5G. However, the haptics, workmanship, and choice of materials are still at a good level. The built-in keys sit tightly in the frame, and their pressure points feel comfortably firm.

In contrast to some other representatives of the mid-range, the Samsung smartphone is relatively light at 173 grams (~6.1 oz). The plastic back of the Galaxy M52 5G, which is available in Icy Blue, Blazing Black, and White color options, surely has an effect on this. All color versions have a striped appearance in common, but unfortunately this hardly hides any fingerprints due to the shiny surface, and it often looks dirty from some greasy smudges.

Equipment - Samsung smartphone without a 3.5-mm audio port

In contrast to the Galaxy A52s 5G, buyers of the M52 5G unfortunately have to make do without a headphone jack. The UFS storage offers a capacity of 128 GB, and a 256-GB option is not available. Due to the operating system and preinstalled apps, the actually available storage space is significantly smaller at 107 GB. However, you can expand the internal storage by using a microSD card.   

The 5000-mAh battery can be charged via the Type-C port that supports the USB 2.0 standard and recognizes external peripheral devices such as storage sticks via USB-OTG without any problems in the test. Wireless transfer of the display contents to external monitors via Miracast is also supported.

You can watch video contents on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or other streaming services in HD quality, since it is certified for Widevine L1. The Camera2 API of the Galaxy M52 5G is available at Level 3.

microSD Card Reader

The integrated microSD slot supports the current SDHC and SDXC standards up to 1 TB. In combination with our AV PRO V60 reference storage card (128 GB), the microSD performance in the Cross Platform Disk Test is convincing, and when copying data, the Samsung smartphone also operates at an above average level with a speed of 50 MB/s.

Software - Galaxy M52 5G with Android 11

As usual, Samsung combines the Android operating system with its own in-house One UI surface in version 3.1, which also includes the Bixby smart assistant. However, the mid-range model does not offer an extra desktop mode via Samsung DeX.

Samsung's Knox security environment is integrated into the software and hardware of the Galaxy M52 5G. Another interesting feature that is also used by other manufacturers at this point is "RAM Plus." This allows the Galaxy smartphone to analyze the user behavior and offer up to 4 GB additional virtual working memory. The Settings menu also includes an extensive always-on display functionality.

At the time of this test, the Galaxy M52 5G is based on Android 11 with the security patches from November 2021. Even though Samsung doesn't list an official date for the update to Android 12, the Korean manufacturer already announced that Galaxy devices will get regular security updates for at least 4 years after their initial introduction. Among others, the M51 predecessor is also listed here. However, in contrast to the Galaxy A series, the M series is only provided with updates every quarter. 

The M52 5G probably won't get three major Android updates like the flagships, but there might be two years of updates and with that, two major Android versions. We expect an update to Android 12 including OneUI 4 with the new look-and-feel of the start screen and extensive personalization options as well as a privacy dashboard in Q2/Q3 of 2022.

Communication and GNSS - Samsung smartphone with 5G

In terms of the communication modules, Samsung uses an NFC chip for Near Field Communication and Bluetooth 5.0. In addition, the X53 modem of the Snapdragon 778G supports the 5G standard with a series of frequencies below 6 GHz.

The chipset in the Galaxy M52 5G also offers access to the mobile Internet via 4G with a total of 13 LTE bands, covering all the LTE frequencies relevant for German-speaking countries, including LTE Band 20 and Band 28. However, traveling abroad, for example to the USA, might create some problems, since Band 13 and 25 are not covered.

In the WLAN network, the mid-range smartphone offers a fast standard for wireless networks with WiFi 6. This allows for high transfer rates, and in combination with our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router, the Galaxy M52 5G shows a level that is as solid as that of the A52s 5G sibling model. Values higher than 400 Mbit/s on average aren't bad, but those of the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE or OnePlus Nord 2 5G are even significantly better.

In order to evaluate the locating accuracy of our test unit in practice, we record a route in parallel with the Garmin Venu 2 for comparison. The location is determined via the GPS (L1), GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo (E1) satellite systems as well as SBAS support. 

The deviations are relatively low, with the difference between the mid-range smartphone and smartwatch being only about 20 meters (~66 ft) at the end of the 4-km (~2.5 miles) test route. In the detailed route of the GPS recording, the Galaxy M52 5G also impresses us with similarly accurate locating capabilities as the Garmin device, allowing us to recommend the Samsung smartphone for navigation tasks in the private arena. 

The satellite fix outdoors succeeds quickly with an accuracy of about 3 meters (~10 ft), and even indoors, the Galaxy M52 5G is able to determine its location very quickly and accurately.

Telephone Functions and Voice Quality - Samsung Galaxy M52 5G with VoLTE

Samsung Galaxy M52 5G

We really like the voice quality of the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G. There are also some useful calling features such as WLAN calling and VoLTE included onboard, where the voice data is transferred via the 4G mobile communication network. 

If you use the earpiece, the Galaxy smartphone delivers an easily understandable voice reproduction. Although the delivery via the mono speaker sounds slightly duller and a bit tinny, using the speaker for a video call still works well. To do this, we used the Skype app in our test. 

Cameras - Samsung smartphone with a triple camera

Selfie taken with the Galaxy M52 5G

Portrait mode of the Galaxy M52 5G
Portrait mode of the Galaxy M52 5G

While the front camera is housed behind a small punch hole and offers a resolution of 32 MP, selfies are recorded using pixel binning, resulting in pictures that only have an 8-MP resolution. Pictures taken with the front camera in daylight look really good, but the quality quickly diminishes in weaker light conditions.

The camera setup in the back of the Galaxy M52 5G also looks very similar to that of the A52 model. Buyers of the Galaxy smartphone receive a 64-MP main sensor that is accompanied by a 12-MP wide angle lens and a 5-MP macro sensor. The Sony IMX682 combines four pixels each into a more light sensitive super pixel by default. This results in 16-MP images, but you can also use the full resolution with a special mode.

In contrast to the Galaxy A52s 5G, the main camera has to make do without an optical image stabilizer. In daylight, the results end up at a decent mid-range level, and the Galaxy M52 5G is able to score with good dynamics in our test photos. However, you can still see some slight deficits in terms of image sharpness, and the same goes for the color reproduction. 

Using the ColorChecker Passport, we analyze the color reproduction of the 64-MP lens in controlled light conditions compared to the actual reference colors. In addition to the brighter illumination typical for smartphones, the Galaxy M52 5G also shows fairly large deviations in the ColorChecker. However, the color accuracy is still acceptable for this price range. 

While the macro lens will probably only offer few advantages in everyday usage, the 12-MP ultra-wide angle camera distinguishes itself with a viewing angle of 123 degrees. Even though wide angle recordings from our test unit offer a better quality that that of the entry-level Galaxy's, the M52 5G doesn't really impress us in this regard. The edges are blurred to a significant degree, and the basic sharpness is low.   

Videos can be recorded at UHD and 30 fps at most, while 60 fps are also possible in a Full-HD recording. Fortunately, you can also switch between the main and the wide angle camera while recording a video.

Accessories and Warranty - Charging the Galaxy M52 5G only at 15 watts

15W charger of the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G
15W charger of the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G

The box of the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G includes a modular charger (USB-A) and a data or charging cable (USB-A to USB-C). Although the Galaxy smartphone supports a quick charge function up to 25 watts, the included charger offers only 15 watts. 

Samsung offers a 24-month warranty for its smartphone. In contrast to the Galaxy A52s 5G, you cannot order Samsung Care+ with the M model. At the time of the test, the manufacturer also does not offer any specific accessories for the Galaxy M52 5G. This is unfortunate, since the mid-range smartphone doesn't include a case. Owners of the Samsung smartphone will also look in vain for a 25-Watt charger in the online store. 

Input Devices and Operation - Samsung smartphone with face unlocking

Even though the Galaxy M52 5G has an OLED panel, the active fingerprint sensor is located in the frame of the case. The biometric finger recognition is usually accurate, but at times we have to reposition our finger, for it to be recognized. In addition, the speed of the sensor isn't really very high. 

As an additional unlocking option, simple 2D face recognition is available, which is implemented via the front camera. The recognition rate is convincing, but the 2D face unlocking function isn't very secure.

Inputs on the 6.7-inch AMOLED display are accurately and quickly recognized up to the corners of the touchscreen. Thanks to the high refresh rate of 120 Hz, the Samsung smartphone offers a smooth operation.

Display - Galaxy M52 5G with OLED

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The 16.5-cm (6.7 in) Infinity-O display of the Galaxy M52 5G is based on the in-house Super-AMOLED technology. While the manufacturer officially does not advertise an HDR10 certification, according to the "DRM Info" app, the OLED panel, which has a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, supports HDR contents. Considering the brightness of 1012 cd/m² that we measured in the APL50 test, users should also benefit from this, particularly since the APL50 also leaves some headroom.  

To control the brightness, the mid-range smartphone uses pulse width modulation at a low frequency of 236 Hz. The OLED flickering is noticeable across the whole spectrum in the Samsung smartphone. We do not see a DC Dimming mode in the Settings menu.   

The refresh rate of the display can be set to either 60 or 120 Hz. There is no adaptive control. This means that the panel of the Galaxy M smartphone is unable to adjust automatically to the displayed content, like the Premium devices of the manufacturer, for example.

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 235.8 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 235.8 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 235.8 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 20848 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The Galaxy M52 5G does not offer a lot of setting options for color adjustment, but at least users can choose among two different profiles. While the color temperature can be adjusted in the Standard profile, you cannot change the separate parameters such as Saturation or Gamma. 

In our tests with the CalMAN software and spectral photometer, the AMOLED panel of the Samsung smartphone appears to have a decent calibration and delivers satisfactory color deviations for this price class (in the Natural profile). Due to the OLED technology where separate pixels can be completely turned off, there is an "absolute" black, and the contrast (theoretically) tends towards being infinite.

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↗ 3 ms rise
↘ 5 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. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
11 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 5 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (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 (37.5 ms).

Due to the relatively high brightness, the Galaxy M52 5G shows itself well-equipped in daily usage also outdoors. Even in direct sun light with some reflections on the glass surface, the image contents should still remain easily readable due to the high brightness and contrast.  

The viewing angle stability of the AMOLED panel is very good, and you can only notice a slight loss in brightness from very steep viewing angles.

Performance - Samsung smartphone with a Qualcomm SoC

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor running in the Galaxy M52 5G contains eight cores distributed in two clusters. The Cortex A78 cluster offers four cores (2.4 GHz), while the remaining four cores are based on the A55 architecture (1.8 GHz). The "G" in the processor label indicates some specialization for games. According to Qualcomm, several WiFi features were adjusted for this, and the Adreno 642L graphics unit was accelerated.

In everyday operation, the mid-range processor in combination with the built-in 6 GB of LPDDR4x-RAM ensures a good system performance. Thanks to the fast 120-Hz display, animations are rendered smoothly and the load times of applications are also fairly short. However, other mid-range smartphones such as the OnePlus Nord 2 5G set a significantly faster standard with the UFS 3.1 specification. This is also demonstrated by our measurements in AndroBench.  

In our benchmark package, the Samsung smartphone follows the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G sibling model, which also uses the Snapdragon 778G. The overall results are at a good performance level for this price class, even if the Poco F3 with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 offers even more power.

Games - The Galaxy M52 5G reaches more than 100 fps

The fact that you can also play demanding games smoothly on the Galaxy M52 5G is ensured by the Adreno 642L, which includes selected Snapdragon Elite gaming functions such as the "Game Smoother" or the "Game Network Latency Manager." In addition, Samsung implements its in-house "Game Booster," which is supposed to control the temperature and RAM usage, among other things. 

However, buyers of the Galaxy smartphone should still understand that the M52 5G is not a gaming smartphone. For example, PUBG Mobile can only be played in the HD setting, and the highest detail level (UHD) cannot be selected. We take a more detailed look at the gaming performance with the GameBench app. The Adreno 642L is able to reach about 40 fps at medium graphics settings and significantly higher with 60 fps at low detail settings.

Even though the Armajet arena shooter, which supports 144 fps in theory, is not reproduced with constant frame rates, the Samsung mid-range smartphone still reaches more than 100 fps at times. Our measurements show 89 frames per second on average.
