I have a blue model A52 but I think it was used for calls no more than 3-4 times.
I mainly used it for photos and sometimes for the Internet via Wi-Fi.
I use a different, weaker Samsung phone much more often, but since it has One UI 4.1, so the more expensive A52 with the same One UI interests me less, apart from its camera capabilities.
On the example of the A52, I check the capabilities of a phone a year older and cheaper with the same One UI and apart from minor shortcomings, I do not see much difference during use.
Of course, the optical qualities of the A52 offer more, but I'm almost blind, so the lack of these qualities in the older Samsung does not hurt me.
I don't intend to bore anyone without a reason writing about the above, because since there are such small differences between the Samsung's entry-level phone and mid-range A52, so the differences are much more barely visible compared to the A52s, A52 5G and A53.
With the exception for the price.
I bought the A52 on the wave of reports that together with the A72 it is the last Samsung's 4G phone worthy of attention.
In addition, Samsung in my location reduced the price of the A52 by nearly US$ 100 in connection with the launch of the A53, to emphasize how much better the latter is.
It is known that these are marketing tricks, while the price of the A52 after 2 months returned to the old level, i.e. about US$ 400.
At the end of this post, I propose to pay attention to the subject e.g. price-quality ratio on the example of the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Happy New Year 2023 to everyone here and especially to the GsmArena Team.

Campfire, 20 Nov 2022It seems like a fake news. My S22 that is a samsung flagship haven`t receieved the update.It's definitely not, many already have it. As for countries, I've noticed China region, Japan or some Canada missing yet. Not sure what delays it though.
Not really. My S22 that is samsung`s latest flagship haven`t receieved the update

The ONE UI 5 update to note 20 ultra is a disaster, my phone started having issues in Wifi connectivity and mobile phone signal drop is most evident including other issues.
One UI 5.Update Downloading.. #indonesia
Xiaomi is a joke. Very slow updates. Samsung is miles ahead.
