But as a package can i take on the competition with the year old, oneplus nord and the real me x3 superzoom being the main ones well we’re about to find out hello, everyone, i’m aditya you’re watching guys 360, and this is the full review of the samsung Galaxy a52. Now, since we started this video by saying it’s, flashy let’s start with the design first, the first thing that caught my attention was the color of my review on it now samsung calls it awesome blue. It has a matte finish which helps a lot with the whole fingerprint situation on the back. While this and the awesome violet options are flashy, awesome, black and awesome white variants, look a bit more subtle. Another key highlight of the smartphone is that it is ip67 rated and you will find a rubber seal around the sim tray to help keep water and dust out flipping the phone to its front reveals the big 6.5 inch full hd plus super amoled display. It has a hole, punch cut out to accommodate the selfie camera. The display is crisp vivid and smooth thanks to the 90 hertz refresh rate. It has good viewing angles and is bright enough when outdoors. The stereo speakers, too, are a good addition as they make video watching more engaging Music now powering the galaxy a52 is the qualcomm snapdragon 720 g processor, and at this price point it seems underpowered compared to some of the other smartphones now samsung offers 6gb and 8gb Of ram options, but storage remains unchanged.
At 128gb i had the base variant for this review, which is priced at 26, 499 rupees. The 8gb ram higher variant is available for 27999 rupees. Most of your interaction with the hardware will be done with the help of samsung’s. One ui 3.1 that’s, based on top of android 11.. It is the same version that is packed on the galaxy s21 series, which is nice to see. Given the galaxy a52 is less than half the price, it does have a fair amount of bloatware pre installed, including daily hunt phone pay, prime video snapchat, sharechat, mxtakatak and modge. I found daily hunt and samsung own my galaxy app to be a bit spammy and it kept pushing notification throughout the day. So, if you’re not going to be using these apps, i would recommend uninstalling them now.

Whenever we upload a new review now, let’s talk about the real life performance of the galaxy a52. Despite the dated soc, the galaxy a52 packs in enough performance to deliver a smooth experience now for casual use such as using whatsapp. A few calls. The smartphone had no issues whatsoever now i did run call of duty mobile at high settings for graphics and frame rate, and the game was playable without any lag or stutter.
The phone was barely warm to the touch after playing the game for 10 minutes, and i noticed a three percent battery drop. At the same time. Now, speaking of battery drop, the galaxy a52 has a 4500mah battery which managed to last over a day and a half with my usage in our hd video loop test, the phone went on for 17 hours and 47 minutes, which is a good score. You can charge the phone with a 15 watt charger in the box, which is capable of charging the phone up to 32 in 30 minutes and 65 in an hour. The device, however, is capable of 25 watt fast charging, so you can buy your own adapter for faster charging. Finally, let’s see how it takes photos. The samsung galaxy a52 has a quad camera setup at the back, consisting of a 64 megapixel primary camera, a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle, camera a 5 megapixel macro camera and a 5 megapixel depth sensor and for selfies it has a 32 megapixel selfie shooter at the Front daylight, shots taken with the galaxy a52 were average. Now these photos look very good on the super amoled display on the phone, but not as much on a big screen. Details were poorer with the ultra wide angle, camera. Thankfully there’s no barrel distortion in the output. Close up shots had good details and if you get very close to the subject, the phone does suggest switching to the macro camera.
The macro camera too manage good shots from close distances. The galaxy a52 has good portrait shots and it could detect faces even with masks on which is a big plus beautification is enabled by default, which you will have to disable to avoid smoothing in the output low light, shots were strictly average and noise was kept under Control the phone is a tad aggressive with noise reduction, which causes a watercolor like effect in the output. The night mode on the galaxy a52 takes about four to five seconds to take a shot but gets better details out in the shadows. The smartphone also crops into the frame slightly to help eliminate shakes selfie is taken with a 32 megapixel front. Camera were crisp, it also works with portrait mode and can simulate a depth of field. The selfies taken in low light was sharp and noise was under control. Video recording tops out at 4k 30 30fps for both the primary as well as the selfie shooter. The rear camera has ois, but i did notice a slight shimmer in the output. Stabilization was better when using the super, steady mode which uses the ultra wide angle. Camera to capture footage and footage shot at 4k was not stabilized. The galaxy a52 is a good looking smartphone and brings an ip67 water and dust resistance rating to the table which most of its competition misses out on. Sadly, apart from this, not a lot of things are in its favor.
It does certain things well, but the competition does them better. The galaxy a52 does not offer the best performance and does it have the best cameras for the price. However, it will appeal to the design conscious and if you are a bit clumsy, the water resistance is a big plus. Now, if you are looking for the best value, the galaxy a52 might not deliver on that front. The samsung galaxy m51 and the galaxy s62 are better alternatives and you’ll also end up saving some money, but if you’re willing to spend a little extra, the real me x3 super zoom does offer better value than this galaxy a52.
