Sort by:

lol, rhat web browsing and video battery life is outrageous, sd card support and compact size, and waterproof too, those aspects alone are enough for some buyers..that exorbitant price is not helping though

        I've seen A52s on the store as well as the one on S20 FE (I'm assuming it uses the same panel), and I would say it's a fine quality one. They obviously didn't look as good as the ones used for the S series, with slightly more noticeable glare from the cover glass, but according to GSMArena and Notebookcheck, they still get very bright and show decent colour accuracy. And yes, I'm the kind of person who prefers a higher refresh rate, and Xperia 10 IV should've supported one given its price - because in case one didn't like it (like you, for instance), they could easily lock the panel at 60Hz and enjoy extended battery life.

            Nick Tegrataker, 16 May 2022The best way to describe this phone is this: A bizarrely ov... moreA52s is no where near compact as 10 IV. It's behemoth of a phone that is half a centimeter wider and 30g heavier with less battery life. I guess everyone has it's priorities but somehow I doubt 120Hz on a midranger is more important than battery life. But then again people might want screen real estate instead of pocketability. In the end who knows. All I know is that Samsung midrange phones have crappy displays anyway, those OLEDs on A50 series are just horrible. I haven't seen Sony 10 OLED so I can't say but I doubt it's any better.

              Let's be honest nobody will buy this phone if not for the battery Life. Otherwise it's pointless, many many much better phones with better specs for lower or the same price.

The other advantage is that, as well as being light, matt plastic does not show all your fingerprints. Finally, anyone who spends 500 euros on a smartphone will tend to put a protective shell on it and will never see this side.

                        I will buy this in a years time when the price has gone down. My trusty XZ1 Compact will be fine until then (and beyond!)

                              Anyways this phone should be priced lower, but it's a decent phone. Camera software needs improvement as well.

                                :-) this phone shows how much the market went away from my expectations. The phone is perfect for me, and all the "disadvantages" are no problem for me.

                                I would just appreciate lower prize.

                                  The lack ok Xperia 5 IV is incredibly disappointing especially with the ridiculous pricing of the 1 IV. The fact they only usually do 2 years of updates just is nowhere near good enough.
