As the name suggests, the equipment of the Galaxy A52 focuses on the mobile communications of the middle-class mobile phone. 5G supports the modern standard, which enables higher transmission speeds compared to LTE. Even with wireless on a short distance one is equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC modern, with WLAN the current WiFi-6 standard (WLAN-ax) has been dispensed with. Dual-SIM is possible with two physical nano SIM cards, but only one of them can use a 5G tariff.
You unlock the display either via code, face recognition or the fingerprint sensor integrated in the screen. As a main interface, USB-C is used, but unlike its high-end devices, Samsung provides the A52 with a dedicated jack output for headphones. A memory extension is also possible via the SIM slot. After the first setup, our test device offered only a free memory of 107.2 GByte, but can be extended by up to one terabyte via microSD.
The housing makes an impression with our testers thanks to the very good workmanship. Optionally, it is coloured in black, white, blue or violet and, thanks to IP67 certification, prevents water and dust from penetrating-in theory, the A52 can be immersed in clear fresh water for up to 30 minutes. We also liked the internal stereo speakers, which offer a relatively good surround sound, but could have been a bit thicker on the bass.
