We’ve seen why the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is a great device for gaming. This time, we’ll talk about the phone, and why it offers so much more than its price, making it one of the best in its price range.
A Display that’s No Less Than Impressive
With the growing number of apps that take advantage of immersive displays, the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is equipped with a 6.5-inch FHD+ Infinity-O Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, delivering smooth and fluid visuals for your enjoyment.
The Super AMOLED screen also consumes less energy despite giving you those punchy colors. If you really want to get even more uptime, you can manually switch the refresh rate to 60Hz.
Built to Perform
Under the Galaxy A52s 5G’s shell is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G, which not only delivers more than enough performance for everyday use and mobile gaming, but it also has great efficiency that allows the device to last longer on a single charge.
By ranking, the Snapdragon 778G 5G delivers performance close to a flagship, for the price of a mid-range phone. A win, right? You also get RAM Plus, which converts a portion of the phone’s internal storage for up to 4GB of additional RAM to improve performance. Unlike some devices, this feature is always enabled.
Who says you need to always have a flagship for a good gaming experience? We threw in our favorite titles on this phone, which ranges from Racing to Shooter, to MOBA, and it managed to deliver good performance across all the games.
Flexible and Capable Cameras
Apart from delivering good performance, a proper mid-range phone should also take good quality photos. In that regard, the Galaxy A52s 5G is armed with a 64MP OIS main camera, a 12MP ultrawide unit, and two 5MP sensors for macro photography and depth sensing. This package makes for a highly adaptive device for most shooting conditions.
Its 32MP selfie camera also offers a wide-angle option, so you can fit more in the frame without having to move backward or forward.
There are also a couple of notable camera features to try – Single Take, which basically outputs several photos and video clips in one press.
Then there’s Fun Mode, which lets you utilize Snapchat filters to add a bit of creative touch to your photos.
More Hours of Fun
With its 4,500mAh battery, the Galaxy A52s 5G delivers at least a whole day of entertainment and productivity. In fact, it scored 14.5 hours on PCMark’s Work 3.0 benchmark, which simulates various tasks including photo and video editing, web browsing, and data manipulation. Of course, your mileage may vary depending on how you use the phone.
To keep you from waiting too long, the device also supports 25W fast-charging via its USB-C port. Samsung also equipped the phone with AI Power Management technology, which intelligently adapts to your usage habits for more uptime.
Ultra-fast Connectivity with 5G
If you live in an area with 5G, the Galaxy A52s 5G will take advantage of those networks to deliver ultra-fast connectivity. You get faster uploads and downloads and have the confidence to go all out in your games without lag. You can also stream content from your favorite websites and apps on high quality and enjoy high-resolution video calling. 5G opens a lot of possibilities for new experiences that were not possible before.
A Smartphone for Your Adventures
The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G boasts an IP67 rating, which means it’s completely protected from dust and being immersed in up to a meter of freshwater for up to half an hour. This means you don’t have to worry about spills and splashes on your phone.
A Great All-Around Device
With everything that it brings to the table, the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is one that should be on that upper section of your list. You get a gorgeous-looking display with a high refresh rate, close to a flagship performance, very capable cameras, and great battery life, basically everything you need to help you get in sync with the modern on-the-go lifestyle. It’s priced at PhP22,990 SRP for the 128GB variant and PhP24,990 SRP for the 256GB version and is available via Samsung’s online store and at authorized retail partners. As part of Samsung’s Holiday offers, the Galaxy A52s 5G (256GB) is also available with a PhP 1,500 token every weekend until December 26, 2021.
