A phone with a virtual proximity sensor the best midranger of 2022?

    One reason to stick with the A5X series rather than the A7X series is that the A5X series receives monthly updates, while the A7X series receives quarterly updates, even immediately following release. I think the A52s is a great device, but if you can afford the S20 FE or grab one second-hand, the primary camera is far superior.

      Fantastic article. These types of detailed, real world, honest reviews is what separates this website from every other tech site. Keep up the outstanding work.

        kinda same here, bug free for most of the time. but nice finish:

        ”Considering its current price, we don't think it's a stretch to call this Samsung's best mid-range smartphone ever”

            This phone is better than it's successor with a 3.5 mm jack and a better Snapdragon processor

              Well my experience is completely different from what GSMarena team wrote in their article about software.
              On my device, software is about 95% smooth and has no issues. It does have a small bugs sometimes but not anything that would disturb my phone's performance.
              Now i'll share my entire 7 month experience with A52s.

              1) Design, build and quality ::: It is all plastic and glass front, what i hate about it is the plastic ram which isn't well made on the left bottom side and where the keys are but i always wear a silicone case so it doesn't really affect my daily experiences. The quality is okay, nothing breathtaking but okay. I also hate how they made the vibration motor so poorly, it's the worst part of my device.

              2) Display, smoothness and colors ::: The display on the other hand is really great. The colors are a bit warm coming from Redmi Note 9 Pro which had really white colors but it doesn't bother me. The smoothness (120hz) is amazing and it literally changed my daily experience & uses, i'll never go back to 60hz.

              3) Software ::: The software is really smooth & with no lags, yes it does happen but not like GSMarena team mentioned, at least on my device. I love how One UI became so stable compared to One UI 1, 2 and even 3. They accomplished so much. I also appreciate the regular updates, it's nice to not wait 3 months for a single security patch (cough Xiaomi cough)..

              4) Cameras ::: I don't really know much about cameras nor i really care about them but i like the pictures it takes. The colors are really nice.

              5) Battery & Charging ::: The battery is great, it lasts me about 1 day and 3 hours with 7-7,5 hours of SOT. I use 18w Samsung's charger and it charges my device for about 1 hour. I never let my battery below 20-25%.

              6) Final touch ::: Overall experience, this is the best phone i ever had. I'll for sure keep it until the end of 2023 and later will change to a different company (probably Apple).
