I have the galaxy a52. The first thing about this device is its striking, look and feel now. I’Ve got to say: samsung has done a really good job over the last year, improving the a line to make it look something more premium now. This device, in my hand here, is priced at 500. It doesn’t look like a 500 phone, actually looks more premium than you’d expect, and it comes packed with a ton of features that i think you are definitely gon na. Like now, fans of the headphone jack would be really pleased to see the headphone jack is still there, something of course we are missing from a lot of devices, but of course you can use that with your galaxy a52 now i’ve come to say that i’ve really Come to enjoy using this device for a number of things display is 6.5 inches and in your hands it feels really comfortable to hold and it’s got a really nice kind of you know, square rectangular feel to it. Now this display is a 120 hertz display, so you’re talking about some really nice smooth motion, all the way through which is great, whether you’re surfing the web, whether you’re on instagram browsing up and down or on twitter it doesn’t matter. And, of course, while you are gaming, that of course, is the big part. So speaking of gaming, this device rocks a snapdragon 750 g now it’s, a 5g processor should give you some really good performance on the games you like to play and speaking of those games, we ran through a couple of them.
The first, of course, is call of duty mobile, where we’re able to go to max settings, not everything at max, but at least max graphical settings and we’ll be able to play the game at 57 frames per second, as you can see, it runs smooth. It really takes advantage of the 120 hertz display to give you really fluid motion. This is where 120 hertz makes a lot of sense for shooters, like call of duty, mobile and also games like pubg mobile, where we’re able to run this at, of course, ultra smooth, which ran really well at 40 frames per. Second again, we couldn’t max it out, but you’re not aiming to max out your graphical performance on a device like this, especially this price point you’re looking to get the best out of it and we did get the best out of the device now one game. Of course, a lot of people like to check out is gen shin impact and with genshin it does recommend low settings uh to play the game, but i try to run it at medium settings where i got 26 frames per second uh it’s best recommended running low, Where you get at least close to 30 frames per second before this that’s, just the standard fork engine here and i think it’s fine, i think the gaming performance you’re gon na get from this is really good for its price point and i look at this device. As more of a holistic package for a lot of people, this is a device that you’re gon na get the balance of, say gaming performance.
We just looked at and also things from the camera. We have a 64 megapixel main camera sensor. We also have a 12 megapixel ultra wide, which is great, and we have a 32 megapixel front facing camera, so let’s jump in and take a look at the video from the camera. So let’s start camera now the galaxy a52a shoots a 4k30 with a front facing camera, as well as the rear camera, which i’m shooting right now for k30 kind of walking down slowly and giving you an idea of what you can do with that. As i mentioned, the rear camera also shoots 14 and you can switch that camera while recording, which is pretty cool, and you can also switch between the lenses. So i have the regular lens here, uh main lens, and i have the wide lens and i also have the 2x students so you’ve got that all built in switch back, and you can see me here. It is a windy day. I am not using the earbuds. I just had them, because i was listening to music i’m out here – there’s, no one around me, which is why my mask is off. But i do have my mask with me, but you have an idea of how well it shoots video at 4k 30 and of course, you also have super steady, which i’m about to show you right now. This is super steady, so looking at the images from the camera, you can see that this camera does a good job, not a great job, but a good job at capturing at different points in time during the daytime, with the rear camera you’re going to get a Lot of good images, uh there’s this this nice hdr with that as well, and i think overall you’re going to capture some really nice images with this camera.
Now the 2 megapixel zoom is great. You can zoom up to 10, but that’s all digital. I would just say: keep it in 2 megapixels and just stay right there low light. Photography is also good, not great, but again, it’s a balance for what you’re getting with this camera in total, which is really really nice for a lot of people. Now this comes packed with a fast charging uh up to 25 watts. It doesn’t come with a 25 watt charger, so that’s a bit of a bummer. It comes with a 15 watt charger, but you can get a samsung or third party charger to use to get that faster charging on the device. Now i think when you look at the galaxy a50, so you’re gon na find something that you like very pleasing. Just in sight, just in terms of looks it’s gon na look like a device, you want to pick up and use and i think functionality it’s going to impress a lot of people if you don’t want to spend a lot of money going up to a galaxy S21, which is priced at 7.99, or go all the way to the ultra, which is about a thousand or more. This at 500 is well priced and well balanced, which begs the question: how will the galaxy s21 fe fit into this ecosystem? The samsung is creating is it’s going to be well priced in between uh, the a52 and the s21.
