Time 12/01/2022 By mhb

On Wednesday morning, I attended a hands-on session, and for about an hour, I played with the three Samsung A-Series phones.

I can say that it looks elegant, the colors are attractive and the flat screens are comfortable to use. The screens are Super AMOLED with 1080x2400 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate on Galaxy A52 5G (6.5-inch diagonal) and 90Hz on Galaxy A52 (6.5-inch diagonal) and A72 (6.7-inch diagonal) , and the maximum brightness is 800 nits.

The screens are big and bright and the A-Series phones feel fast to use.

The back is made of a material that became famous on the Note 20, called Glasstic. The finish is matte and no fingerprints remain, and the feeling is pleasant, not cheap material. The phone frames are made of aluminum.

GALAXY A52 and Galaxy A72, first left and third, have Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processors, and GALAXY A52 5G has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor. For each of the three models there are options of 6/8 GB RAM and 128/256 GB storage. Storage can be expanded to any model with a MicroSD card up to 1 TB.

The main cameras are 64 MP, accompanied by 12 MP ultrawide cameras and 5 MP macro cameras. While the Samsung Galaxy A52 and A52 5G have 8MP depth sensors, the Galaxy A72 has an 8MP tele camera. Each smartphone has a 32 MP selfie camera.

More images with the three smartphone terminals, top A72, middle A52 5G and bottom A52.

I also took some pictures on the spot with the phones. With A72: ultrawide up, wide right and 3X optical zoom left down.

With A52 5G: ultrawide top, wide right and 2X digital zoom left bottom.

While I was shooting, I installed Call of Duty: Mobile on my A52 5G and played a game. This is what the Game Booster menu looks like, which optimizes the system for performance.

And this is the match.

And for those who are passionate about numbers
