Samsung just launched an upper mid-range phone, Samsung Galaxy M52 5G in Nepal. This is a successor to a well-reviewed Samsung Galaxy M51 that was launched last year.

Samsung Galaxy M52 5G price in Nepal is Rs. 48,999 for 6/128GB variant and Rs. 50,999 for 8/128GB variant. The phone is available to buy from authorized Samsung stores across Nepal.

Samsung is known for sacrificing the phone’s performance for having a superb display and camera in the mid-range segment.

However, this time—after tough competition from Chinese smartphone manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Poco, and Realme—Samsung has leveled up the game by including a competitive chipset.

So, is Samsung finally catching up with the rest of the phones in the performance department? You will find out in TechLekh’s Samsung Galaxy M52 5G review.

Slim and Light Design

  • 175g
  • Hybrid Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by)
Samsung M52 ReviewM52 5G Design

In the past, one of the major complaints after the performance of the Samsung’s M series phones was its design. The design was not only dull but it was also bulky and heavy. With the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G, Samsung has redesigned the phone. Though the build is still made out of plastic, it looks much better than before.

When I first picked this phone up, I immediately realized how light and slim the phone is. This is very unlike any Samsung’s M series phone before.

At just 7.4mm thickness and 175g weight, Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is probably the slimmest and lightest available mid-range phone in 2021.

The rear has a glossy surface to it that makes this phone a bit slippery but on the bright side, it does a fair job at hiding fingerprint smudges, thanks to the pinstripe pattern.

The rear camera bump is still in the same place but it only has three cameras now instead of four. And, the camera design also looks much minimalistic than before.

Both the power button—which also doubles as a fingerprint sensor—and the volume buttons are on the right side. On the bottom, there is a mic, USB Type C, and a mono speaker. Unfortunately, the M52 5G no longer has a headphone jack.

Excellent Display

Samsung Galaxy M52 5G comes with the same large 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display. However, Samsung has listened to its customers and has now implemented a 120Hz refresh rate display.

The already awesome display of the Galaxy M51 is now even smoother in the new Galaxy M52 5G. The display, however, is not a dynamic one, meaning the refresh rate is fixed and doesn’t change depending on the content of the display like we see in flagship phones. If it’s set at 120Hz, it’s fixed at 120Hz.

Talking about the quality of the display, the display is excellent. Watching movies and playing games on this display is a pleasant experience.

It is bright and the colors look vibrant; you will not have any complaints regarding the display.
