Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G

The Samsung Galaxy A52s has all the hallmarks of an excellent affordable smartphone. What it lacks in premium trimmings like a top-tier processor and fast charging, it makes up for with a high-end build, excellent display, long-lasting battery life, and long-term software support. A modest upgrade over the already great Galaxy A52 5G, the Galaxy A52s is a very easy phone to recommend.
