Samsung A52S: Good Cameras And Resistance, But Worthiness?

Samsung has provided a mid-year upgrade to their phone.

They launched the Samsung A52s in August 2021, providing the same design as before. This new smartphone is priced at INR 37,499. It has a 6.5inch screen, with sAMOLED display, and Snapdragon 778. A headphone jack is provided in this model. The company has provided IP67 protection which is great for its price range. It features 4 rear cameras, with a 64MP primary camera. One front-end camera. And it comes in four different colors. Samsung has cut costs in other areas by providing regular plastic back cover.

Cameras and Protection

The four rear and one-front-end cameras are of great quality. The pictures clicked by them have a good level of exposure and saturation. Image quality is consistent and better, and the images come out well-detailed. For this price range, Samsung’s competitors provide only 8MP second camera, Samsung provides 12MP instead. Videos can be captured in 4K at 30FPS and 1080p at 60FPS. The stability of the videos is compromised in 4K.

While the video output is stable in the 1080p recording, the details are not comparable. This happens in ultra-wide-angle and selfie mode as well. IP67 dust and water resistance provided is better for the price range.

Battery, 5G Bands, and Performance

Samsung A52s provides 12 different 5G bands, which is rarely found in a mid-range phone. The battery life is average. And Samsung provides a 15watt charger, which takes a long time to charge (1 hour and 45 minutes). The model supports a 25watt charger but that has to be purchased separately.

Even while running on higher graphics quality, the system does not heat. The gaming and movie-watching experience is much better than the previous version. The system runs smoothly even with heavier apps.


Samsung A52s might be an upgrade from A52, but it’s overpriced. It charges almost 10% more than OnePlus Nord 2 and Poco F3 GT. The features are similar to the competitors and the extra cost doesn’t make sense for the average user. The extra money is worth it only if the user’s focus is great pictures and good water resistance. Otherwise, alternate options are the way to go.
