oh thanks gsmarena!

mobileuser22, 21 Apr 2021MUI is an unreliable mess. Update are buggy and rare.When did you last use miui? I bought a Poco X3 NFC coming from almost stock Android Motorola and think miui is great and its had regular updates too. What exactly are these 'bugs' you talk about coz I've had no problems using miui. It's running miui 12 which by all accounts is much more polished than previous versions.

There isn't a single Xiaomi phone that has all 4 of these:
IP rating
OIS
Telephoto
3 years of OS updates.

Anonymous, 21 Apr 2021This phone is plastic (back and frame), like A52, A32, A31,... moreWhat's the problem with plastic backs? Don't you protect your smartphone's glass at the back, with a plastic cover from getting shattered? What's the point of having glass at the back at all, when you have to protect it (and won't pay for expensive replacements)?

nickname optional, 21 Apr 2021When you buy a new car, do you look only at the engine? This phone is plastic (back and frame), like A52, A32, A31, A21s, A12, A11 phones from Samsung from 100 euros.. There is no need ro look around, plastic is plastic, and there is a reason why all ,50 euro no name phones have plastic build (and not glass or metal).

avwvwvwvwv, 21 Apr 2021Samsung Galaxy A72 price ₹35k Redmi Note 9 Pro price ₹13k ... moreEven Xiaomi Redmi 9s have/had SD720.
But same case is with Xiaomi Redmi 9 (about 80 euros phone)..
Same SoC Helio G80, like in Galaxy A32, year later..
So, it seems for someone who wants Midrange Samsung from 2021, A52 is best option if you look price/ratio

Zero, 21 Apr 2021A MASSIVE dissaster... the Poco F3 goes around that price..... moreThis phone will mostly be an attractive offering here in the US. There are way better, way cheaper offerings everywhere else.

A MASSIVE dissaster... the Poco F3 goes around that price... why they didn't used the Snapdragon 860 at least?
The Poco X3 Pro can defeat in the performance department.

Samsung Galaxy A72 price ₹35k
Redmi Note 9 Pro price ₹13k

Both have Snapdragon 720G

What’s more- Redmi Note 9 Pro was launched a year before A72 at half the price and with the same chipset.

Samsung is selling old chipsets/exynos at double prices.

DON’T BUY SAMSUNG

eddy-, 21 Apr 2021A52 bests this device in almost everything. Except the big ... morenot at all as other mentioned A72 has Telephoto camera, bigger battery and i'll add the (as for me) more important thing, A72 has 3x optical zoom, that's huge difference in photographing, i have A71 currently, probably i'll move to A72 just for the telephoto, the OIS and the optical zoom. But then in case photographing or the camera department isn't your priority, then yes there's not difference between chipset, gpu and such stuff except the battery capacity too.

A52 bests this device in almost everything. Except the big screen...which personally I prefer the smaller size.

The distance between the A72 and the S21+ would be smaller still if the A72 had wireless charging.

Overpriced in india. Slash the price by 5000-8000 and it works.

Hmm, so the design dept of sammy is going the oppo way. At least the cam island looks somewhat, if not totally, reminisce of the oppo find x3.
