2 weeks after - Samsung A32 Review

Leave a Comment

So today I will give you my thoughts on the new Samsung A32 phone that I recently got. I decide to have a second phone for my own private & personal number as well as for my own personal phone away from work stuff. Basically a phone for my casual scrolling and entertainment. I opt for a phone that is not t pricey but a little bit of everything in one phone. I will categorize my thoughts on each features that I focus more towards my own personal usage as below.

1. Video Quality

Most of the time I will use this phone to watch YouTube videos or videos from Netflix and other social media platform. I got t say that I am very satisfies with the wide angle view, clear crisp videos on the screen. The Samsung A32 has a 6.4" Super AMOLED, 1080p, 90Hz refresh rate. So this gives you a smooth transition as well as smooth chill scrolling through the phone without any lagging.

For audio, it has a single bottom speaker located on the right bottom of the phone. Pretty good for a personal viewing while watching video. But usually I will use a head phone where there is a standard phone jack insert on the bottom left. No extension needed.

2. Camera

A great features about this phone is that the cameras are well protected by having their each protection bump around the camera lens. Now, I am not a pro in knowing a specific lens features but the Samsung A32 camera features 4 cameras which is the a Wide (main): 64 MP, f/1.8, 26mm, PDAF; Ultra wide angle: 8 MP, f/2.2, 123˚, 1/4.0", 1.12µm; Macro: 5 MP, f/2.4; Depth: 5 MP, f/2.4.
Taking picture outside is quite good. Not the most share photo but a pretty good one for personally use. The contrast are a bit dark to my liking but still I'm okay with it.
Taking picture in low light/inside a building are also okay. With a contrast of blurring background from main object is pretty good too. This one is taking via Portrait mode.

The color contrast is pretty good too. I think its better with good lighting. Below, with good window lighting it captures a very beautiful product photo. Great if you want to start of a product photo taking with this phone. The zoom in/macro lens are pretty good.
There are also adjustable wide angle features as low as 0.5x for a scene picture taking mode. The lines does look a bit curvy but it does capture the whole thing that is right infront of you quite clearly.

There are many other features that you can explore to fully "amp" up your picture quality by using the right mode for the camera.
The front camera has a 20 MP, f/2.2, (wide) camera.

3. Battery Life

I got to say, the battery life is awesome. I basically don't have to worry about it. I would say I charge my phone every2-3 days. I'm not joking! It has a 5000mAh battery capacity. But it takes a longer time to charge, within 1 hour, it has only charge 50% of the whole battery space. Also I notice this phone hardly gets "hot". You know when sometimes after scrolling through  phone, the phones heats ups very fast. Not for this one.

4. Overall hold & feel

One thing for sure is that this phone is not a pocket friendly phone., It is quite big and heavy. But this reflects back to why viewing videos from the phone is really good. I also love the pastel purple design of this phone. Even though its made from plastic, it still have that sleek minimalist design to it. The details of the whole phone are : 158.9x73.6x8.4mm, 184g; glass front; plastic back; plastic frame. The fingerprint reader to open up your phone is pretty sensitive too. Easily detect your fingerprint without any lag. The software for this phone are Android 11, One UI 3.1.

The Samsung Galaxy A32 (5G) 8GB RAM + 128GB storage priced at  – RM1,199.00, For me this is a very fair price to what you get. I think its a perfect phone for a personal use or to my opinion if you want to give it to your parents or staff for work related things.
