Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G

84.4% Samsung Galaxy M52 5G review - A powerful 120-Hz smartphone that is destined to fail? | Notebookcheck
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...
Samsung Galaxy M52 5G review: Sleek design, super performance
Source: Sam Mobile English
The Galaxy M52 5G is a great choice if you’re looking for a phone with top-notch performance, a beautiful high refresh rate display, 5G support, and great battery life (with super fast charging once you buy a super fast charger) without digging too deep of a hole in your pocket. On top of all that, the M52 5G also gives you a mostly complete One UI software experience, which is pretty much the best in the business. However, if you’re looking for a more well-rounded mid-range phone and can do without 5G connectivity, the Galaxy A52 is a better choice – if you can find it in stock. Its performance is more than enough for most tasks (including most games), it’s got a great display even though it works at 90Hz instead of 120Hz, you get stereo speakers, its design is water and dust resistant to give you extra peace of mind, and you get the guarantee of three major OS upgrades.

While the Galaxy M51 was a clearly positioned marathon runner, the M52 5G takes a more balanced approach. Replacing the 7,000mAh battery with a 5,000mAh one may have robbed the new model of record-breaking endurance numbers, but it's still one of the longest-lasting phones in its class, especially for this performance level. It's all the more impressive an achievement when you consider how light and thin the handset is, something you couldn't call its predecessor. All in all, however, we'd say that the Galaxy M52 is a well-rounded and competent handset with essentially no deal-breaking faults at a reasonable price. Regional differences in the numbers may make it a better deal in one place than another, so it wouldn't hurt if you make some price comparisons in your local market context. Either way, the Galaxy M52 is a solid device.

Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is a worthy upgrade to the last year launched Samsung Galaxy M51. The smartphone comes with a better design, display, processor and camera. Along with this, it also offers 5G connectivity making it a good deal. If you are looking for a smartphone under Rs 30,000, then this can be your pick.

60% Samsung Galaxy M52 review: Bare essentials
Source: Android Authority English
The Samsung Galaxy M52 isn’t the most exciting release from the South Korean giant, but the phone includes all the essentials you’d expect. In particular, the large and vibrant display sets the phone apart. Additionally, the Snapdragon 778G chipset is a solid performer, though Samsung’s battery optimizations seem to throttle performance in a few games. One of the Samsung Galaxy M52’s sore spots comes with the poorly optimized cameras which fall behind those found on the best budget shooters, but my principal gripe with the phone is the build quality. Simply put, you expect better at this price. The cheap-feeling plastics just don’t live up to market expectations. However, that’s easily overcome with a case. What can’t be overcome is the bloatware situation, as well as missing features like an IP rating or stereo speakers. That’s a long string of misses in a category that’s already full of hits.

Samsung Galaxy M52 5G Review – The Big Battery in Sleek Fit
Source: Cashify English
Samsung’s M Series smartphones have successfully established a strong link with a Monster battery. That’s one of the reasons to buy the M52 5G. It features a large battery, yet it is not a heavy block. Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is going to offer you some of the best features of the A52s at a lesser price. The Galaxy M52 5G is the first M-series phone to feature a 120Hz refresh rate screen, and the Snapdragon 778G processor is currently one of the most performing mid-range processors available. Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is the thinnest and meanest monster so far, with a sleek and narrow design that is just 7.4 mm in thickness, making it lightweight and easy to carry. The Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is the latest addition to Samsung’s M-series of phones, which aims to provide both value and performance. There are a lot of changes inside compared to the previous edition, but are they all enough to make the M52 the smartphone to grab at this price point? Let us jump into the review without wasting any more time.

80% Samsung Galaxy M52 5G review: an impressive mid-range phone with a few compromises
Source: 91mobiles English
The Galaxy M52 5G gives you everything you need from a Samsung phone under Rs 30,000. The company has not made a lot of compromises, which it tends to do on some of the cheaper Galaxy phones. It ticks all the right boxes in the display, camera, and design departments. It’s a sleek and lightweight device that delivers a stunning display and enough power to handle day-to-day tasks. But there are some compromises to be found, such as the lack of a headphone jack and a smaller battery compared to its predecessor. Oh, and you also have to purchase a 25W fast charger separately. These compromises may not be deal-breakers, but it’s still disappointing to see in this segment considering rivals don’t skimp on such features as much. The Galaxy M52 5G goes up against the OnePlus Nord 2 and Mi 11X 5G that offer better performance and faster charging speeds, among other things. That said, the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is perhaps the most dependable and well-built Samsung phone in this segment right now.

The Samsung Galaxy M52 5G takes on the midrange competition, it offers an impressive 7.4 mm design, 120 Hz Super AMOLED Plus display, has deserving cameras, we got some great shots from its 64 MP camera, the macro camera offers excellent performance, and a faster Snapdragon 778G that performs well. The Samsung Galaxy M52 5G comes with support for 11 global 5G bands, Knox Security, and decent battery life. The Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is currently available for Rs 24,999 (6 GB RAM) which is a steal, it’s also one of the best non-Chinese smartphones available in India.

83% Samsung Galaxy M52 5G Review: Less Is More
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
That brings me to the end of this review of the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G. As I discussed earlier, it is the closest thing to a value-for-money Samsung phone. Moreover, it’s a pretty big step-up from the Galaxy M51—especially in terms of performance. And for a cheaper price, the phone delivers practically the same smartphone experience as the A52s. From their display, performance, to the battery, these two phones deliver comparable results. Admittedly, it is a tad bit overpriced here in Nepal compared to markets like India. But if you don’t want to pay a premium price for the A52s and are set on getting a Samsung-made mid-range smartphone, the Galaxy M52 is totally worth it.

Samsung Galaxy M52 Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
Where the back can be a little opaque with horizontal lines. The Samsung Galaxy M52 meets all your demands including 5g support. It is all about super performance, although the layout is also unique. More importantly, it supports the best chipset, amazing camera, but it would be better if there were gyro-EIS and OIS features available too. However, the galaxy M52 phone does not disappoint you, as we are familiar with the Samsung phone. With its fabulous specs, the Galaxy M52 gets 4 years of software and 3 years of OS upgrade that really deserves attention from its users. Keep in mind that this model does not have the protective glass or IP67 rating you find on the Galaxy A52. besides, night photography can be a little headache. Therefore, if you are looking for an alternative option you can definitely take a look at the Xiaomi Mi 11X smartphone.
