Stop it right there before you decide if you should get. The s21 series meet the a52 5g, a brand new mid range 5g smartphone that packed with tons of amazing feature which raised the bar of a mid ranger phone into an even higher level, but first let’s get the specs out of the way the samsung galaxy. A525G comes with a 6.5 inch: 120 hertz full hd amoled display a snapdragon, 750 g, 608 gigabytes of ram 128 or 256 gigabyte of storage and a 4500mah battery. But can these amazing specs make it a better buy than on the s21 series let’s find out right now, let’s start with the first thing: the exterior the a525g is made out of plastic all around, which is no big deal the plastic on the back of the Phone has a frosted matte finish that really feels good to the touch, although not as luxurious as a classic finish on a more premium s21, but definitely much better than the glossy finish on the a32. It helps gripping the phone much easier and they leave almost no fingerprints but i’m, not sure about the scratches, though the frame is also made from polished plastic that makes it looks like aluminum overall, it feels reasonably sturdy but there’s. This particular part in the middle of the phone that feels a little flimsy looking closely. It doesn’t appear to be moving or bending, but you can feel it every time you glide your fingers over it.
I’M, not sure if this is the only problem with my unit or it’s. The design flaw. So keep that in mind on the right side is the power button, the volume rocker and on the top, is the hybrid sim tray? Look it down on the bottom. Is the 3.5 millimeter audio jack, a usbc charging port and a speaker moving to the front? The display on the a525g is a 6.5 inch full hd 120 hertz super amoled display with peak brightness of 800 nit. This is probably the best display for the phone at this price range, and it also comes with a gorilla glass. 5. samsung’s amoled panel is no doubt among the best in the market. It looks really good it’s, vibrant, very bright and has a really good color reproduction. The 800 nit brightness is plenty bright for day to day use it’s even usable under direct sunlight. It also supports hdr content. The viewing angle is pretty good, although not at the level of the s21. You can tell that this is not the higher end amoled display, because there will be a rainbow shift when viewing at a really tilted angle and 120. Hertz is really amazing. You can’t really go wrong with a high refresh rate screen. It glides through everything like butter, is it as responsive as the s21? No, but you only notice the difference when you compare it side by. There is another display optical fingerprint sensor, it’s pretty accurate, but it’s quite slow.
It took almost a second to unlock, which is actually not that bad, but because the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the s21 was so fast that it made everything feel slow. And finally, there is a serious speaker on the a series phone. The earpiece does double as a secondary speaker and it’s, really good, it’s decently, loud with reasonable detail and compared to the mono speaker, it’s, really a day and night. This stereo speaker, alongside with awesome, display media consumption. Experience on this phone is really on point, but one little thing to be aware is that the main speaker will be a little louder than the earpiece on the top, but it’s definitely not a turn off performance wise for everyday use like social media, watching videos, multitasking And even gaming, the snapdragon 750g is plenty powerful. It just chews through every task you throw at it. Although in some games you might not be able to turn on the mac settings doing this. The battery is not an issue here with 4 500 milliamp hour battery and the less power hungry chipset battery performance is excellent. In my case, i found myself finishing a day with around 20 of battery left with 5 plus hours of screen on time, which is pretty impressive, and, unlike the s21s, there is a 25 watt charger included inside of the box. 25 watt is totally fine, but compared with the 2021 standards, it is on the slow side now onto the most used feature on smartphones, the camera.
The a525g comes with a quad camera setup, the 64 megapixel main sensor, which is the same sensor as the s21 hybrid telephoto lens, a 12 megapixel ultra wide, a 5 megapixel macro lens, a 5 megapixel depth sensor and a 32 megapixel selfie camera. They shoot decent photos in good lighting. It has good contrast, good details, decent dynamic range, a lot of the time. The photos do look a little too contrasty. There are quite a lot of digital sharpening on the parts of the photos that have textured areas but it’s personal preference anyway, Music, Music, Music Applause. But in a more challenging lighting situation, the photos from the a525g will be quite soft. They have a lot of noise and do look dull, sometimes in low light condition. The photo looks decent as well, but when zoom in you’ll see that there is a lot less detail here, but is it as good as the s21? No definitely not but it’s, not so far behind if the s21 is an a. This is a solid b for video. The a52 5g shoots up to 4k 30p, with an ok quality, but still behind the flagship. There is a super, steady mode included, but you will have to lower the resolution to 1080p, just like on the s21, but here the overall quality really drops Music. The a52 5g is a really great phone that offers a lot of value. So why pay more? For the s21 turns out, there will be things you missed out from the s21, a flagship chipset, a little better display more premium material, better camera, faster wi, fi, six wireless charging, samsung dex, if you’re into that smartphone laptop, hybrid setups.
So if you’re cool using phone without these features, the a525g is totally a better buy over the s21. It will save a couple hundred bucks, but if you really need any features mentioned earlier, i’d say just go for the s21. It is definitely a great phone. So what do you guys think?
