The new Galaxy A52 by Samsung offers a high refresh rate display, the latest software, a sleek body with an IP rating, and a versatile camera system. However, you may be wondering if it is worth your money. We will take an in-depth look at the phone's specs to help make your decision.

Design: Stunning 

The fabulous black color, sleek curves, and seamless design of the Galaxy A52 are so impressive and catch everyone's eye. The minimal camera housing blends in perfectly with the matte finish on the rear, giving it an almost unibody look and feel.

Unique Colors:

I can express my style by choosing from four different color options - Aurora Black, Blue/White, Midnight Black, and White/Silver. Each color has its personality, so I can choose the one that best reflects my style.

Protection: IP67 Rating

The Galaxy A52 is more than just a pretty face, it's also IP67-rated for water and dust resistance, so I don't have to worry about spills or drops on the go.

Display: Smooth and Responsive

I love watching series and movies on this phone, as the super AMOLED display offers vibrant colors and is smooth and responsive because it has a 90Hz refresh rate.

Performance: Impressive Specs at an Affordable Price

Thanks to its powerful octa-core processor and 8GB of RAM, this phone offers all the performance I need. I have a decent gaming experience, and multitasking is a breeze because of Snapdragon's 720G processing power which allows me to run heavy apps and games smoothly.

Speaker Phone:

For my headphones, this phone got an audio jack. Thank God,  I don't need to have a type-C converter. And it offers stunning sound quality, now my friends and I enjoy pop music freely and feel the beat inside our bodies.

Sensors.

The Galaxy A52 is packed with state-of-the-art sensors, including a fingerprint sensor built into the display. And thanks to the improved virtual proximity sensing, I don't have to worry about accidental touches on my phone.

Camera: Versatile Camera System

With four different camera lenses, I can capture stunning photos and videos from any angle and with great detail. The Galaxy A52's camera system has an ultra-wide, wide angle, macro, and depth sensor, so I play around with different effects like bokeh and filters to create unique photos and videos that stand out online.

Front Cam: Clear and Crisp Selfies

The Galaxy A52 has a powerful front-facing camera, with a 32MP sensor that takes clear and crisp selfies, even in low light conditions. So I always look my best! And when I am vlogging its 4k video quality always satisfies me.

Battery: Long-Lasting Battery

With a 4500 mAh battery, I use this phone all day without worrying about the recharge. And with 25W charging, I get up to 50% of the battery charged in just half an hour - so there's no need to wait when I'm on the go!

Network: Great Compatibility for Work and Play

It has all the latest features I need in my phone except 5g, but that doesn't matter as my country doesn't support it yet. It's compatible with a 4G network, and all my video games work great on this device. For fast sharing and streaming, it has a high-speed Wi-Fi feature and Bluetooth 5.0.

FAST FACTS

Best For:
Durability and Long Usage

Battery:
Li-Po 4500 mAh, non-removable
