That is, good for vlogging as well as gaming, Galaxy A52 can meet your needs without many obstacles.
On the back, the rectangular-shaped module houses four cameras and one LED flash. The color of the module is no longer made different – like the designs found on most cellphones. However, thanks to these simple changes, the minimalist impression we get is even stronger.
Not only a beautiful design. You can’t underestimate his ability. Four cameras that have been implanted promise a more satisfying photography experience. The main camera has 64MP wide lens capability and is supported by PDAF and OIS features.
While the other three cameras consist of a 12MP ultra-wide lens, 5MP macro lens, and 5MP depth sensor. The company has also added various supporting photography features for the rear camera. What is clear, you don’t need to doubt his abilities!

On the top screen, we will find a hole punch hole. The hole is a container for a 32MP selfie camera. Unmitigated, the front camera of the Galaxy A52 is able to activate HDR mode. Surely it will make it easier for those of you who are fond of selfie photos, right?
The kitchen runway is equally impressive. After complaints from users from all over the world regarding Exynos’ unsatisfactory performance, Samsung finally used Qualcomm’s chipset.
Amazingly, the Samsung Galaxy A52 relies on the performance of Qualcomm’s mid-range gaming chipset. Namely a series Snapdragon 720G. Supported by a CPU with eight cores, the GPU part relies on the Adreno 618 card.
Another supporting feature that you must know is a 4500 mAh battery. You can count on endurance. The problem is also supported by 25W fast charging technology. According to the company’s claim, recharging only takes 30 minutes from 0 percent to 50 percent.

Review of Samsung Galaxy A52: Snapdragon 720G at a price of Rp. 5 million?
In reviewing, the first thing I noticed was the chipset the device uses. And as already reviewed, the Samsung Galaxy A52 is supported by the Snapdragon 720G chipset.
Admittedly, the chipset is powerful enough for a middle-class HP. Making the device stronger when used for playing heavy games.
However, which has escaped attention, devices from other manufacturers that are powered by Snapdragon 720G are selling at a much cheaper price. So far, there have been four devices supported by this chipset. Among others, the Redmi Note 9 Pro (review), Oppo Reno4 (review), Realme 7 Pro (review), give Vivo V20 (review).
Each is sold at a price of IDR 4 million. And the four devices were launched in 2020. Then, isn’t Samsung quite behind in technology if it only applies this chipset in 2021?
On the other hand, the author also appreciates the design choices and exterior components. Making the Galaxy A52 the most tempting among the HP options with Snapdragon 720G. So, according to the author, the price of Rp. 5 million is not too high for this device.
