So the Samsung A32 was launched just a couple of days back and the price of 20000 rs is very compelling but is it worth that money of yours well there are four really compelling reasons why you should get it but then there are also a few things that may make you want to reconsider whether you should get the Samsung A32 or not so stay till the very end and let’s start with the first thing
Samsung A32 Specifications
This Design is probably the most refreshing design i’ve seen in quite some time I mean it’s so minimal and clean and it comes with camera cutouts with no housing. Now the back is surely plastic but if you look at it it does not look or feel cheap to hold in fact for a 5000 milliamp-hour battery phone this is surprisingly super light and the phone’s height is perfect for easy single-handed use as well
In the sim card tray, it allows you to mount two sim cards and one micro sd card all three at the same time so that’s really great and you get the 3.5 mm headphone jack too which is rare nowadays and is really nice function to have.
The Samsung A32 has a super amoled display and its 90 hertz refresh rate.
The super amoled screens as we all know are one of the best display technologies in the smartphone world you know the colors are real nice and punchy very saturated vivid high brightness and even in the brightest of days outdoors you would not have any issues with visibility
Now the display size is 6.5 inches which honestly I think is a really good size it’s not too small it’s not too big, manageable with single hand and you still get a really good experience whether you’re watching videos movies tv shows or even gaming so the size i think is really good and now you get a 90 hertz refresh rate in a samsung phone that costs just a little north of 20000 rupees
if you’ve never used a 90 hertz display you’re gonna love this experience the motion is super smooth when you’re scrolling the phone or just the touch experience with the Samsung A32 it’s going to be elevated to a whole another level anyway
The third reason to Buy this phone is the battery, you get a 5000 milliamp-hour battery which is a lot and Samsung like in their m series phones it does give you that battery capacity in fact there are phones that have six thousand and seven thousand milliampere battery capacity.
But 5000 mah battery is a lot even with heavy use you will not run out of battery till the end of the day with moderate use you can easily go up to one and a half days and if you move the refresh rate or lower it down to 60 hertz in the settings then this will easily last you up to two days. so that’s a lot of battery life point being if you have battery anxiety then Samsung A32 is the phone to get
The Last reason to go for Samsung A32 is you get one ui 3.1 with android 11 right out of the box which means you get features like secure folder, nfc ,dolby atmos and altz live and even link to windows.
you also get the full version of Samsung pay so you can store your credit card information securely and make payments by just tapping your phone on the credit card machines
you do get some pre-loaded apps that you may or may not use but if you don’t want them you can just uninstall and get rid of them easily and by the way, there’s an inbuilt radio in the phone so if you have headphones or earphones connected you can tune into your local stations and enjoy live radio
But you don’t get everything that you usually get with one ui 3.1 in the flagship level phones for example you don’t get Bixby routines, you don’t get Samsung dex, you don’t get built-in screen recorder
It is understood that Samsung dex requires a certain level of hardware to enable it but the screen recorder and Bixby routines are sort of software-oriented and could have been easily plugged into this phone at this price point something that I think Samsung is just saving for their flagships.
Besides these few misses if these four reasons are really important to you then the Samsung A32 is a pretty good phone to consider and personally speaking I love the design I’m blown away by it, it’s plastic but hey you’re going to put on a case and honestly, the plastic just keeps the device lightweight which I think is really good.
So we have got a Quad camera set up at the back (Quad Camera: 64 MP, f/1.8, 26mm (wide), PDAF 8 MP, f/2.2, 123˚, (ultrawide), 1/4.0″, 1.12µm 5 MP, f/2.4, (macro) 5 MP, f/2.4, (depth) ) and you get a 20 megapixel front-facing camera and here are some samples that you can check out . the primary lens is actually a 64 megapixel lens and you can shoot in regular 16 megapixel mode also.
The only area that I think the Samsung A32 did not perform as well is in terms of HDR. The images did look a little washed out and some pictures came out a little warmer but other than that images are pretty vibrant and extremely usable across all social media platforms of your choice
Selfies are also good and provide a portrait mode so you know the background could be blurred the skin tones look pretty good overall and i think the camera is just about okay.
It’s decent but for the price point, we are getting far better cameras on other phones. I wouldn’t expect high color accuracy or brilliant post-processing capabilities but it’s not too bad either
A couple of more things to know in terms of video it can only shoot full hd at 30fps no 60fps no 4k recording there’s a scene optimizer built into the phone you get the latest portrait mode and in terms of other modes right in front of you but you don’t get super slow-mo, no portrait video and no pro video
All right so that’s it about the camera do download the samples so you get a fair understanding of the quality yourself.
The processor is capable of handling day-to-day tasks without much issues it’s not really the most powerful phone in this segment at this price point you can get higher performing phones for sure especially if you’re looking at gaming and multitasking at large
the next thing would be price so this is 22 000 rupees in India for 6 GB of ram and 128 GB of storage which i think is a bit much and hey if you are in India you can use the HDFC bank offer to get 2000 rupee cashback and that makes it 20 000 rupees
now if you’re someone who was looking for a really good looking phone with android 11 one UI 3.1 , super AMOLED display with 90hz refresh rate and really good battery life or battery capacity you can justify the 20 000 rupees
But if you’re someone who wants to be gaming on your phone or want to be doing multitasking at large you may want to look at some alternatives in this price segment and I think the Samsung f62 in the online space is a pretty good alternative to look at
I would say look elsewhere if gaming and multitasking are important to you all right folks that’s pretty much it on the Samsung a32 if you’ve got any questions feel free to drop them in the comments section below and as always don’t.
