My first impression when I got the Samsung Galaxy A52 unit and saw the packaging box, I saw a picture of the unit on the front with the dominant white color typical of Samsung.

The image of the unit on the front of the box is displayed along with the words ‘Galaxy A52’ at the top, and the Samsung logo at the bottom.

When you open the box, there is a Samsung Galaxy A52 unit in Awesome Blue, a Type-C charger cable, and a 25W charger head, complete with a manual and warranty card.

The color of the Awesome Blue unit that I am reviewing looks very fashionable, fashionable, and contemporary. The color selection gives a youthful impression, with a light blue color on the back panel, with the Samsung logo display at the bottom.

On the back panel there are also four camera lenses that are designed vertically in the order of 3-2. This camera design gives the impression of a Samsung flagship, even though this Samsung A Series cellphone is actually in the middle segment.

The selfie camera comes in a punch-hole design located at the top center of the screen, and I don’t think it’s too distracting. Honestly, I like the minimalist design on the Galaxy A52.

On the right side of the body, there are two buttons with one long button for volume, and the shorter one as the power button.

Super AMOLED screen

The Samsung Galaxy A52 is equipped with a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED screen, which has a quality of 1080 x 2400 pixels, with a screen ratio of 20: 9, and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

One thing I need to highlight on this screen is its ability to support 90Hz refresh rate display. In my opinion, this is an advantage that meets expectations as a smartphone user who prioritizes entertainment activities.

In indoor use, the quality of the Super AMOLED screen which already has a fingerprint scanner is unquestionable. Visuals are displayed very sharp, with fast response and good color contrast.

Even when used outdoors, the display is still quite clear even when it’s hot, I still have to close it as a screen so I can see the display more clearly.

Overall, the visual appearance and response rate on the Samsung Galaxy A52 screen have met expectations, and I’m very satisfied using it for the past few days, especially for playing games and watching my favorite series.

Trying Galaxy A52 Camera

The presence of a quad camera on the Samsung Galaxy A52 certainly makes me excited to know its capabilities, of course, by trying it directly.

The Samsung Galaxy A52 is equipped with four cameras that have a 64 MP wide camera configuration with an f/1.8 aperture, a 12 MP (f/2.2) ultrawide camera, and a 5 MP macro and depth camera with an f/2.4 aperture.

The selfie camera of the Samsung Galaxy A52 has a high resolution, 32 MP. This front camera also supports 4K @ 30fps and 1080p @ 30fps video recording.

When I tried to take some selfies, the bokeh results were very satisfying. Even in normal mode, the results are also very good, with sharp details.

But after that, I immediately tried the rear camera, because to be honest, this is what I’ve been eyeing since I first held the Samsung Galaxy A52 unit.

My first test was done indoors, by photographing display objects. At normal, wide, and zoom distances, the resulting photos still show great detail in my opinion.

Likewise when I use it outdoors, by trying to photograph several objects. I tried to maximize the ultrawide camera owned by the Galaxy A52 on Jakarta street conditions.

In my opinion, the distortion produced by the ultrawide camera is not too distracting, and still looks natural. Even in some photos, it adds to the aesthetics of the photo itself.

Next, I tried the Portrait mode on the camera, to see what it looked like. As a person who also plays with DSLR cameras quite often, of course I want to see the quality of the resulting bokeh.

The results of portrait shots both indoors and outdoors, in my opinion, are equally good. Even so, I need to add, when taking pictures indoors, there is a little noise in the photo, but it’s not too distracting, and I think it’s normal.

Finally, I also tried the Macro mode to shoot some objects. My experience while trying it, is a bit tricky, especially when photographing some objects with low light.

After a few tries, I came to the conclusion that the resulting macro photos were above my expectations.

Overall, the camera capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy A52 are able to meet all my needs as an ordinary smartphone user who does not have special needs in terms of photography.

The Samsung Galaxy A52 is equipped with a Snapdragon 720G chipset which works very well on both 90Hz and 60Hz screen settings.

In general operation in daily use, I did not find the problem too annoying.

Although I have to admit, when I open a lot of applications and run various activities, the response slows down a bit. But for me, this is still reasonable.

The Samsung Galaxy A52 itself has pocketed AnTuTu scores of 261282 (v8) and GeekBench 5865 (v4.4), 1577 (v5.1), and when used to play games or watch series or Youtube video shows on the highest settings, the display runs smoothly.

Even the screen response rate was excellent, and it didn’t take me long to navigate from activity to activity.

Even when playing games, the screen display that supports a 90Hz refresh rate is very helpful in delivering smooth and stable graphics quality.

The enjoyment of playing games also increases because of the fast screen response. I am satisfied with the overall performance provided by the Samsung Galaxy A52.

Battery Life

This latest Samsung cellphone carries a 4500 mAh battery that supports 25W fast charging, which is claimed to be able to charge as much as 50 percent in 30 minutes.

With this knowledge, I immediately tried it myself to prove the claim. In this battery review, I did it for a full day.

In the first test, I did various activities with the aim of leaving 10 percent battery charge, to see how long it took to charge to 100 percent.

On charging from this 10 percent battery condition, it takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes to finally be fully charged. For me, this charging time is very fast.

The second test I did by watching streaming shows on Youtube continuously when the battery was full, by selecting the highest video resolution setting (4K). In approximately 4 hours of viewing, the battery indicator shows 84%.

Lastly, I tried it to play games on a fully charged battery as well. The game I tried was the heavy game PUBG, and the light game Crash Bandicoot.

After playing PUBG for about 1 hour, the battery was reduced in the range of 8-10 percent, while when playing Crash Bandicoot for the same time, the battery was reduced in the range of 6-7 percent.

With a battery capacity of 4500 mAh, its durability is enough to amaze me. Furthermore, I also did a trial by doing various activities for a full day.

On a single charge, the battery is 100 percent fully charged at 9am, remaining 64 percent at 8pm.

Conclusion

After conducting a series of trials to experience the performance of the Samsung Galaxy A52 firsthand, I have come to the conclusion that this latest Samsung cellphone is very suitable for use as a daily drive because it has met my expectations.

For entertainment needs such as watching and playing games, what is offered by Snapdragon A52 with 8GB/256GB RAM, frankly, is more than enough.

In terms of design, the appearance really reflects its target market, which combines a modern, minimalist design, while still looking fashionable and fashionable. So for me, the Samsung Galaxy A52 is really worth it.
