Samsung has offered its fans another “economy” handset in the “Galaxy A” lineup, the Galaxy A32 5G”. The “5G” version of “Samsung Galaxy A32” has almost the same “features” compared to its previous “4G” variants, except an upgraded version of the “processor” with “5G” support.
At a glance, The Samsung has offered an elegant look and feel at a low price, really large “6.5” inches, 5000mAh “durable” battery with 15W fast charging, 64-256Gb internal storage,4-8GB RAM, lucrative “software” upgrade policy, Quad camera, MediaTek MT6853 Dimensity 720 5G (7 nm) Octa-Core chipset, Side-mounted Fingerprint reader and many more. All these features are available at a starting price of $279.
Relevantly, the “4G” version of “Galaxy A32” got a “less powerful” processor but comparatively higher resolution “cameras” and much more “pixel density” than its “5G” version. But, the “4G” version is hardly available in the market now. Samsung is pushing its “5G” version in the market.
Samsung Galaxy A32 5G: Few positive sides: why you will buy it as a “stand by” handset

At the very beginning of the review, I would like to share the “Market Price” of the “Galaxy A32”. The price list will help to understand the “objective” of Samsung, a balance between “budget” and “expectation”. Also, buyers can realize what they can have from a “budget-5G-handset”.
The pricelist is somewhat like the following, it may vary a bit depending upon “offers”.
- $200= 4GB RAM &64GB storage
- $279=4GB RAM &128GB storage
- $310=6GB RAM & 256 GB Storage
What we can have at this pricelist.
- elegant design with modern “Look & Fill”
- A 5000mAh battery that lasts long
- Very much realistic “software upgrade policy.
- Quad camera (wide+ultrawide+depth+macro) at this price
- Well protection by Corning Gorilla Glass 5
- “5G” version from Samsung at such an affordable price.
What I have felt with my “Samsung Galaxy A32” is pretty much a handy phone with “above average” performance. It is well suitable for “daily” use like “making calls”, “listening to music on speaker”, “playing games”, “as my movie-maker at parties and outings”, “watching movies”, and “daily office work”. I have found the handset pretty much “strong” with “Corning Gorilla Glass 5” protection.
Let’s make my “review” clear with my experience using this handset. I think it has a really “large” screen to handle the “typing and internet-browsing” with more ease. I used “Microsoft-Team-Meetings” for work without any trouble. Hence, it serves well to tackle my “daily” office jobs. Watching movies and playing games is smooth with this “large” display. The brightness is well. The handset does miss the “premier” feel regarding the “display resolution”. But, I think it can be tolerated for this cheap “price” tag. I think 256GB of internal storage is okay for me to store “photos” and movies. The extendable memory up to I TB is assuring. I can extend if it is needed. The “gaming” experience is quite satisfactory with its 6GB of RAM. I play a lot and never got my phone “hanged up”. If you are not a “game” lover, I think 4 GB of RAM is enough. I tested “GPS” on the long drive and got no problem. “The speaker” performance appears fine for me in the room while listening to music. But, I won’t deny that I expected a bit more from “Samsung” regarding the “speaker” performance.
The “camera” works fine for me as it offers decent and enough “crispy” snaps. 4k@30fps video shooting is not certainly a “wow” performance but serves better at daylight outings. Night video shooting is not that much good enough. I think “quad-camera” and “4k” video shooting is fine at this “budget”.Not a “premier” quality “camera” that you will get here, obviously, no one can expect at this budget. The “battery” really lasts long enough, even more than a day after watching movies. The “software upgrade” policy for the “Operating System and security” makes the “handset” pretty much a profitable “deal” in the long run.
The “Galaxy A32” does not have an “IP” (water and dust resistance) rating that I think Samsung should provide. Also, I felt the handset sometime gets slightly heated after prolonged use.
So, guys, the decision is yours to buy or not to buy. I must say “Samsung Galaxy A32 5G” is a “handset” for daily rough use at a very affordable price with “overall” good results. Even having “Galaxy A32 5G” as a standby “handset” would give you a good “return on investment” in the long term.
