Our Samsung Galaxy A52 5G Review

Nowadays, shopping for a smartphone on a budget doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the quality. The A52 5G is a stellar mid-range option for those who aren’t looking to spend hundreds on Samsung’s latest premium flagship model.

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G: Display

Samsung is known for their excellent smartphone displays and despite it being a mid-range device, the A52 5G is no exception. Its 1080p Full HD+ resolution and Super AMOLED technology combine to make colours appear crisp, rich and fantastically vibrant. 

The fact there’s a pinhole for the camera means it’s able to take full advantage of its 6.5-inch size and is great for anyone who enjoys streaming a lot of video. Its also got an impressive 20Hz refresh rate meaning that there’s hardly any lag when scrolling through the internet. 

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G: Camera

You’re unlikely to have any complaints with the A52 5G’s main 64MP lens which performs brilliantly in well-lit conditions. You'll enjoy sharp, vivid photos which are packed with fine detail. A 12MP ultra-wide camera, 5MP macro camera and 5MP depth scanner sit alongside it providing a nice versatility in types of shot.

Its dedicated night mode is far from terrible but the photos captured in poorly-lit situations aren’t quite of the same high quality. There’s also no telephoto lens so zooming in will make everything look incredibly grainy. The front 32MP camera is very good though and will more than satisfy those who love taking selfies. 

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G: Design

The design of the A52 5G won’t blow you away but it’s still a decent-looking smartphone. While its rear is plastic rather than the slick, shiny glass of Samsung’s flagships, a smooth matte finish prevents it from looking cheap. If you’re a fan of brighter colours, this device is available in pleasing shades of blue or purple alongside the normal black and white. 

The plastic has an added advantage in the fact that it makes the A52 5G feel a little more solid in your hand whilst maintaining a lighter build. It also has a responsive fingerprint sensor built into the actual display, a headphone jack at the bottom and a IP67 dust and water resistant rating.

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G: Performance

The A52 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor with 6GB of RAM which results in a perfectly average performance. You should be able to navigate around the device, open and close apps and browse the web without any real issue. 

In terms of battery life, the A52 5G is pretty standard for a smartphone being able to take you all the way through the day. There’s no wireless charging feature but if you’d like an impressively quick boost, a 25W Samsung charger can take you to 50% in around half an hour. 

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G: Features

The A52’s headline feature is its 5G capabilities which gives you access to lightning-fast download and upload speeds. Enjoy buttery smooth gaming, glossy HD Netflix streaming and high-quality video calls even in densely populated areas due to its significantly lower levels of latency. 

5G isn’t yet widely available in the UK but it does have a presence in certain areas of major cities like London, Manchester and Cardiff. The A52 5G runs Samsung’s own One UI 3.1 OS which contains everything that’s included with Google’s Android 11. The tech giant has also promised it’ll receive three years worth of upgrades and security patches to ensure longevity. 

How much is the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G?

The A52 5G will cost you around £399 meaning that some consumers will be able to purchase it outright and opt for a SIM Only deal.

The majority of consumers will still prefer to opt for the pay monthly plan however and break this price down into more manageable installments. 

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G: Our Verdict

The A52 5G is a fantastic mid-range smartphone that gives you a lot of brilliant features for an even better price. 

It’s a great choice for anyone looking for that next-generation 5G connectivity on a budget and its 20Hz Full HD+ display renders everything in beautifully crisp, clear detail. The main 64MP lens also performs way above average and is capable of producing some really lovely shots.

While its three years worth of OS upgrades and security patches might not be the flashiest feature it’s still a great bonus to have. Being able to use the phone for longer will hopefully save you money in the future!
