Samsung Galaxy A52s Design Review
The Samsung Galaxy A52s design is quite sleek with matte backs and a somewhat more angular look than in previous devices. At 189g, the phone also feels great in the hand, more so due to the excellent weight distribution. The chrome-finished polycarbonate mid-frame unfortunately isn’t quite as premium and tends to attract fingerprints.
The A52s has a USB-C port for charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as space in the SIM tray for a microSD card slot. The stereo speakers produce loud audio, but the lack of any additional audio processing makes it sound tinny.
The Samsung Galaxy A52s also features Gorilla Glass 5 at the front and back. Therefore, the screen is well protected from shattering.
Samsung Galaxy A52s Camera Review
The Samsung Galaxy A52s features a quad-camera set-up, which compromises of a 64Mp main lens, a 12Mp ultrawide lens, a 5Mp macro lens and a 5Mp depth lens. The photos taken on the main camera are impressive. Colours are bright and contrasting, but still true to life, unlike some rivals which often overblow shades.
On the front, there’s a 32Mp selfie camera. Shots on this are really impressive in bright daylight. The Samsung Galaxy A52s can shoot video in 4K up to 30fps.

Samsung Galaxy A52s Software Review
The Galaxy A52s uses Android 11 which is preinstalled on the smartphone, and Samsung’s in-house OneUI 3.1 is installed on top of it. It strongly customizes the look and shifts the controls to the lower half of the screen as much as possible, so that even users with smaller hands can use it easily. The Galaxy A52s 5G currently even receives monthly updates.
The usual Samsung apps are on board, you have to deal with some preinstalled advertising apps, but they can be uninstalled easily.
