Samsung Galaxy A32 or Samsung Galaxy A52, which is better option? Both Samsung terminals have similar features: same screen size, quad camera, large battery … However, they also have important differences. The resolution of the lenses is not the same, one of these versions has a more powerful processor and the other has 5G . If you don’t know which model to choose and you want to know all the differences, I’ll tell you about them below.
Different screen technology, resolution and refresh rate
Both have the same screen size, the differences are in the panel technology, the resolution and the refresh rate.
The Samsung Galaxy A32 has an IPS panel in front of the Super AMOLED screen of the Galaxy A52. In addition , the Galaxy A52 has a higher resolution: Full HD + compared to the HD + resolution of the Galaxy A32 . As for the refresh rate, we have a 90 Hz screen on the Galaxy A52. The Samsung Galaxy A32 has a 60 Hz refresh rate.
Therefore, and despite having the same screen size, the Samsung Galaxy A32 has a lower pixel density, since its resolution is lower. It also has a lower screen speed, which is especially noticeable when browsing the interface. Technology does not have so much to do with screen resolution and quality, there are very good IPS panels. However, keep in mind that an AMOLED screen consumes less battery.
Performance: MediaTek vs Qualcomm
Samsung Galaxy A32
The Samsung Galaxy A32 bets on a MediaTek Dimensity 720 processor, an eight-core chip that incorporates a module to have 5G connectivity. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy A32 has 5G. On the other hand, Samsung has opted for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chip for the Galaxy A52. In this case, no 5G connection. While there is another version with 5G, this one is quite a bit more expensive compared to the A32.
In terms of RAM and storage, the Samsung Galaxy A32 has versions of 4, 6 and 8 GB. All of them with an internal storage of 128 GB. On the other hand, the base version of the Galaxy A52 is 6 GB with 128 GB of internal memory. There is also a variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
More battery for the Galaxy A32
In the battery section, the Samsung Galaxy A32 wins. This terminal has 5,000 mAh capacity. The Galaxy A52 has a 4,5000 mAh battery. Of course, fast charging is more powerful in the A52 model: 25W vs 15W in the Galaxy A32.
Also, keep in mind that the screen of the Samsung Galaxy A52 is AMOLED . Therefore, a greater battery saving can be achieved if we activate the dark mode of the system.
