I posted my early impressions video of the A52s a little over a month ago and since then, I have been using this phone as my daily driver. It’s been a little over a month now, and I’ll finally be sharing my long-term review of the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G here.
Now, the phone is about 10-15% more expensive than your typical midrange phones like the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE, and the Realme GT Master Edition. So in this review, I am going to answer if the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is worth the extra cash.

Ok, let me start with the aspect where the A52s outclasses the competition. And I strongly believe it’s the cameras. While I was using this phone, I also reviewed the OnePlus Nord 2, Realme GT Master Edition, and the GT Master Explorer Edition, whereas I’m currently testing the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G. And none of them can beat the reliability of the A52s.
The photos from its primary 64MP lens have a pleasing color reproduction, are well-detailed, and their dynamic range & contrast levels on most occasions are also fair enough.
With Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on board, it’s really helped me capture detailed photos of my pets, which is something you simply can’t achieve from phones without OIS.
Plus, it helps deliver sharp and well-detailed pictures during low light conditions too.
Likewise, I also found the portraits from the A52s to be incredibly consistent. As you can see, it has a nice background blur and skin tone.
