Samsung Galaxy A32 Review, Looks More Fresher and Cooler


Samsung Galaxy A32 Review

Review of the advantages and disadvantages, as well as the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy A32. A tough affordable smartphone with an alluring screen and design.

The Galaxy A3 series is one of the favorites in Samsung's Galaxy A series. Because these models are usually offered at a more pocket-friendly price, they still carry the important features that make them special.

Even though it had dropped caste since the update to the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A31 series, which felt less luxurious than the 2016 and 2017 Galaxy A3s, the Samsung Galaxy A32 has now established itself as a classy smartphone from the Galaxy A.

The Galaxy A32 was presented by Samsung by bringing several things that made it look fresher, more cool, and respected as a middle-class smartphone.

The advantages of the Samsung Galaxy A32

Some of the advantages of the Samsung Galaxy A32 make it one of the best choices for the middle to lower cellphone segment. Starting from display technology, reliable chipsets, to other enhancing features.

90Hz Refresh Rate Screen

Finally, Samsung is paying attention to 'more' screen capabilities for its affordable smartphones. Thanks to this, the Galaxy A32 gets the advantage of a screen with a refresh rate of 90 hertz (Hz).

Although this feature is not the highest refresh rate technology available on mobile phones today. However, this feature is considered premium to be embedded in affordable cellphones.

With a 90Hz refresh rate, the experience of using the Galaxy A32 for the purposes of enjoying digital and multimedia content will be very enjoyable.

Powerful Processor for Gaming

If previously Samsung gave the Galaxy A31 the MediaTek Helio P65 series processor that focuses on efficiency. Now, the Galaxy A32 is given a more reliable chipset devoted to performance and gaming.

With the Helio G80, mobile gaming activities can be done more reliably without significant obstacles. The processor itself has eight cores with speeds of up to 2.0 gigahertz (Hz) and is built with fairly sophisticated fabrication technology.

Not only reliable chipset support, Samsung also enhances the performance of the Galaxy A32 with a feature called Game Booster. Which functions to make graphics smoother, optimize the battery to maintain temperature.

Large Battery Capacity

One of the sectors with the most noticeable improvements to the Galaxy A30 series from the Galaxy A series is battery power. Since the release of the Galaxy A30, the battery capacity of this series has increased.

In fact, on the Galaxy A31 and Galaxy A32 the capacity has increased by about two times compared to several generations below. So that currently the capacity is 5,000 milliampere hour (mAh).

Thanks to the large battery capacity, the power will certainly last longer to support a full day of activities.

Higher Camera Resolution

If the A31 is given four cameras, so is the A32. What's different, now the A32 is supported by a 64 megapixel (MP) main camera, while the A31 is only 48 MP.

As well as increased resolution for sharper, more detailed images, this main camera also gets slightly better aperture. Namely f / 1.8 and additional phase detection autofocus (PDAF) features.

Meanwhile, three other cameras are located on the back of this phone. Namely 8 MP for ultrawide, 5 MP for macro photography needs and another 5 MP for bokeh.

These four main cameras plus one 20 MP selfie camera are enough to optimally support smartphone photography activities.

Gorilla Glass 5 Protection

In addition to the increased refresh rate on the screen, Samsung's upgraded protection is also provided by the presence of Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 glass.

According to tests conducted by Corning, Gorilla Glass 5 has up to four times the strength of the previous version. And, can survive 80% when dropped more than 1 meter (m).

Even so, this cannot be used as a guide. Because under any circumstances, keeping the cellphone from falling and bumping is the main thing.

There is NFC support

Because it is present as a mid-range smartphone with important features, it is only natural that we have expectations that the A32 will be equipped with complete connectivity. One of the most important is of course near field communication (NFC).

With NFC technology, cashless payment activities can be done more easily in the digital era like now. You can also easily check your balance and top-up your electronic money balance.

Fresh design and looks luxurious

One of the things that makes the A32 even more eye catching is its fresher design and unique rear camera placement without a frame around it.

The glossy touch on the back also offers an elegant and more "luxurious" impression for a cellphone in its class.

If you have design considerations when choosing a smartphone, this is one of the best in an equivalent price range.

Screen Brightness up to 800 Nits

The superior refresh rate and maximum screen protection are further enhanced with a stunning screen brightness of up to 800 nits. It is one of the lower mid-range smartphones with the highest screen brightness.

This screen brightness will be very helpful when you need to operate your cellphone when you are outdoors in the presence of sunlight that obscures vision on the screen of the device.

Disadvantages of Samsung Galaxy A32

Some of the advantages that the Samsung Galaxy A32 brings make it somewhat special, but there are also small things that are drawbacks.

Average Camera in Low Light

Although equipped with four main cameras and one of them is high resolution. The photos of the Galaxy A32 are still not optimal if used in low light or at night.

Even so, maybe this would be more perfect if Samsung provided a software update to the Galaxy A32's camera.

Fast Charging Not So Fast

A jumbo capacity battery feels out of balance when combined with fast charging technology of only 15 Watts (W). However, of course you can better manage the time to charge it so that its use is more optimal.
