In this article, we are going to compare two mid-range but very valuable phones, Galaxy A52s and Honor 50 from two popular brands, namely Samsung and Honor, to see finally Which is a better option?
The handset market is much hotter these days because companies are trying to gradually add the capabilities of flagship handsets to the handsets so that they can get more user feedback. To attract. Since more users have the power to buy cheaper phones, it was only natural that mid-range mid-range phones with attractive features would finally be on the market one day, and even flagships would be a more valuable option to buy.
Significant increase in power Processors, camera and display quality, battery capacity and charger speed, which are six of the most important parts of a smartphone, make it easy for companies to equip their interfaces with great capabilities. For example, the IP67 waterproof standard, which we once saw only in the flagships, is now seen in some mid-range phones, thanks to the presence of the IP68 standard in the flagships. Optical image stabilization, which we once dreamed of adding to more economical handsets, is now present in many mid-range devices, and the flagships are equipped with more advanced models. The same can be said for battery capacity, charge speed, and so on.
So the intermediate market is much hotter now than it used to be. There are also excellent examples on the market from various companies such as Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei, OnePlus, Reelmi, Honor, etc., each of which has its own technical specifications and capabilities. but what we're going to talk about in this article is a Comparison of the Galaxy A52s and the Honor 50, both of which are really valuable products. Last year, it finally broke away from Huawei due to the pressure of US sanctions against Huawei, which is also gripping the company, and now operates independently in the smartphone market so that no sanctions will be imposed on it as a result. The company now sells its handsets with support for Google services and has a successful performance.
Samsung also launched the Galaxy A52s as a sequel to the popular Galaxy A52, which was surprisingly popular. It was more than the older model and many users were willing to buy it. This phone can actually be considered a bridge between the midrange and the flagship, which has all the good features in acceptable limits and sizes or even beyond. So it's a very worthwhile choice.
but let's take a closer look at both handsets to see which one can ultimately be the best intermediary on the market.

Galaxy A52s vs. Honor 50
Since these two phones are mid-range, we expected everything inside the box to be anything other than a charger, which fortunately is the case. set. When you open the box of the 50, you will see the phone itself, a very fast 66 watt charger and a USB-C to USB-A cable. but it goes further and puts in the box, in addition to the above, a transparent silicone case and a handsfree with USB-C interface because the phone does not use a 3.5 mm jack.
On the other hand, the representative of the Korean company delivers a completely empty box in which only the phone itself and its 25-watt fast charger with one There are two USB-C cables. Other than that, and of course the manuals, there's nothing in the box, no handsfree, no interface converter, not even a regular silicone case.
Design and displayName Galaxy A52s Honor 50 Dimensions & Weight 126.96.36.199.159.9mm - 189 G 188.8.131.52.160 mm - 175 Hot Screen size 6.5 inches 2400 1080 pixels 6.57 inches 2340 1080 pixels Display capabilities < Super AMOLED flat panel with 120Hz refresh rate - 84.9% screen-to-body ratio - 405 pixels per inch 120Hz curved OLED panel - 89Hz screen-to-body ratio 7. - Density 392 pixels per inch Body Front panel made of glass, back and frame made of plastic Back and front panel made of Glass material, plastic frame Resistance standard IP67 with resistance to water penetration in one meter of water for 30 minutes No standard has been registered
In terms of design, both phones are really great in their size. Except that when you hold the Honor 50 in your hand, you feel better because it is both lighter and the back panel is made of glass. Of course, one can not claim that the back panel, which is made of glass, is necessarily a strong point, because the plastic is often less damaged in the event of a collision with the ground and does not reduce the beautiful appearance of the phone, but on the opposite side, the glass may break. . However, if you are using a protective frame, these are not very important.
On the front panel of each phone we see a selfie camera embedded in small holes The size of the Honor phone is slightly larger. On the back panel, we see relatively large modules, but the Honor 50 module looks bigger. This circular module hosts four cameras, one with a 108-megapixel sensor in the upper ring and the other three in the lower ring. The Galaxy A52s, however, has a design quite similar to the Galaxy A52. That is, a rectangular module with three cameras on one side and a camera and flash on the other side.
In terms of color, the Honor 50 is more attractive. Only the black color of this phone is quite simple and other colors have a special design. but the Galaxy has only four very simple and ordinary colors, which makes it a good choice for more simple people. In general, the color is tasteful, but the higher attractiveness of these colors can not be ignored on the glass panel of the Honor 50.
Another thing that adds to the charm of the Honor 50 is its curved display. This feature is often seen in flagship phones, and these days even Samsung does not use such a design in its regular flagship phones because it wants to be a factor in the aesthetic difference between standard and plus model flagships with its ultra. So we're glad the Honor paid attention to this and doubled the beauty of its mid-range phone.
In addition to all this, the Honor 50 is lighter, slimmer and wider than the Galaxy A52s, but its overall size is only 0.01 mm. It is taller than the Samsung Galaxy. However, the screen size is about 0.7 inches larger. This means that the Honor has performed much better than Samsung in reducing the margins of the top and bottom of the screen, and the Honor 50 is also superior to the competitor in this respect. In terms of convenience, however, both phones do not pose a problem due to their almost equal size. but its representation is noticeably thinner, which may make it look a little nicer.
The frame of both phones shows nothing but the power key and the volume keys. Of course, the Galaxy A52s also has a hole in the bottom as a 3.5 mm jack, while the Honor 50 is useless. You can see these two phones from all angles below.
The Galaxy A52s, on the other hand, has a plastic body, but also uses the IP67 waterproof and dustproof standard, so that it is completely resistant to water and dust penetration. The front panel of this phone is covered with Gorilla Glass 5 protective cover, while we do not see such a thing in the representative of the Chinese company. So it seems that the Samsung Galaxy has the upper hand in terms of resistance.
but we come to the screen, where the scores are fully distributed. Although Samsung has equipped its phone with a slightly higher resolution display with a higher image density, most of the front panel of the display is a high-quality display, which can be a bigger advantage because the quality of the display is not different at all. There is nothing special in practice. Especially that The panel of both OLED phones and their refresh rate is 120 Hz. So it seems that in this section the user has to decide exactly what he wants. A display with a slightly higher resolution and density, or a display with a larger screen-to-body ratio, fewer margins, and of course curved corners? Or puts 120 Hz in front of you, and by activating each of them, your phone display will remain fixed on them in all modes. but on the 50, 60Hz is fixed, but when the refresh rate is set to 120Hz, it is not fixed, and when you do not interact with the display, it is set to 90Hz. This makes the representation of energy performance better in theory in terms of energy consumption. Especially when streaming video from YouTube, Netflix and gallery videos, the refresh rate drops to 60 Hz anyway, while on the Galaxy A52s everything is forced to go to 120 Hz, while some apps do not support such refresh at all. .
Battery lifeName of the phone Galaxy A52s Honor 50 Battery capacity > 4500 mAh 4300 mAh Charger 25 watts 66 watts The charger inside the box has has the amount of charge Name of the phone Galaxy A52s Honor 50 Video playback 19 hours and 29 minutes 18 hours and 55 minutes Web browsing 12 hours and 38 minutes 15 hours and 56 minutes Voice call 35 hours and 20 minutes 34 hours and 23 minutes
In terms of battery life, the Galaxy A52s should perform better on paper thanks to its larger battery life. but based on our research, we found that in practice both phones have almost the same performance in doing different things, and if one is better in one part, the other phone will appear better in the other part. In general, the Galaxy's better performance is seen more in making calls and playing video, otherwise in video playback, the Honor representative has a much better performance. Of course, you should note that in web browsing, the Honor 50 was completely at 60Hz refresh rate with this score. Therefore, achieving such an hourly rate was not too far from expectation. Overall, the GSMArena website rated the Galaxy A52s and Honor 50 at 113 and 100 hours in terms of battery life.
In terms of charging speed, but the sheet is completely back. Not surprisingly, the Honor 50 can charge much faster than the Galaxy A52s thanks to its fast 66-watt charger, but Samsung's 25-watt charger isn't slow at all. The huge difference between the two chargers should not necessarily be seen as a factor in the dramatic difference in charging speed, but in this comparison, there seems to be a half-hour difference. In general, according to studies, the Anr 50 charges 61% in 30 minutes and fully in 54 minutes. The Galaxy A52s, on the other hand, charge about 53% in 30 minutes and 1 hour and 28 minutes in full.
They are equipped with stereo speakers, which unfortunately only the Galaxy A52s have this attractive feature. As a result, there is a difference between the quality, clarity and volume of the two phones, which makes the Samsung Galaxy significantly better. According to reviews, the Galaxy A52s was able to perform better overall in terms of audio content playback. Features include Dolby Atmos, Dolby Atmos for gaming, advanced equalizer, and more. Play below to find out better quality on your Samsung phone. It should also be noted that the GSMArena website gave the Galaxy A52s a good score in this section and an average of 50 on it.

In terms of software, both phones are really great Are and meet all the daily needs of users. Of course, there are differences that make users prefer one over the other, but in general we must say that you will not see any particular weakness in everyday use. but we will take a brief look at the images of the software environment as well as a series of features to see which product looks more interesting at first glance.
Let's start with the Honor 50. A product that, although made out of Huawei supervision, has a user interface that feels quite similar to Huawei's EMUI 12. Of course, these similarities are more apparent, especially in the design of icons, themes, display defaults that are always on, and all of which are part of the visual appearance and effects. but in terms of usability and functionality, this interface really has nothing to say against EMUI.
However, he tried all the features of Android 11 These include, at least, instant access permissions, notification bubbles, media control in the notification area, and grouping of messaging app messaging calls in the notification area. Other than that, we have to say that all the features in this interface are similar to Android Stoke, except that it does not have the simple look of Android and is a bit personalized.
A series of applications such as gallery, phone, weather , Calculator, file manager, notepad and are not by default for Google, but all applications and services of this American company in Honor 50 are fully supported and there is no need to worry about this. There are also a number of pre-installed applications that you can remove.
Unlike EMUI 12, this time the Quick Notifications panel and settings are not divided into two sections, but are placed vertically in a menu. There are a number of weaknesses in this section, the most important of which are the inability to access the quick settings panel by swiping down from any part of the screen, as well as the lack of automatic brightness control option. Thus, the user must enter the general settings of the device to be able to enable or disable this option.
Also, in the main menu, when you hold on to any application, only the "Uninstall" option appears, so to access more options, you must enter the settings and applications section. On the plus side, there are some interesting gestures on the phone, such as picking up the phone to answer a call or picking up the phone to turn on the display. We should also mention the very high speed and optimization of the Magic UI interface as a big strength. Of course, in general, it seems that this interface still has a lot of unfinished work and it needs to update it with more capabilities. Otherwise it can not last long against the best in the field, of which Samsung is one.
On the Galaxy A52s, but thanks to the One UI interface, there are so many features that may be used for a long time Do not even remember to use many of them. In general, not all of the weaknesses mentioned in connection with the Honor 50 interface are present in the One UI, but it also has an extremely great feature. Although the heavy interface of the Korean company occasionally crashes, do not underestimate the hardware because it is perfectly normal.
On a Samsung phone you can see the notifications panel by swiping down from anywhere on the screen (this option must be enabled in the settings), by holding down the icon of each application to things like delete, add to home, select, the information of that application in the settings And even access shortcuts that are really great. All of this, along with Samsung's three-year commitment to support the phone in software, has made the Honor 50 less of a competitor in terms of both software capabilities and support. It should be noted that we do not know exactly how long it will update its phones, but it seems that for the Honor 50 we should see a two-year operating system update.
In the hardware section, both phones From one processor However, the low-power Cortex-A55 cores in Samsung dealership are set at 1.9 GHz, while the rival reaches 1.8 GHz, which in practice, of course, will not see much difference because The type of software used is the hardware that matters. To ensure the hardware strength of these products, you can see the benchmark tests for both phones below. strong> Galaxy A52s Honor 50 single-core 771 787 multi-core > 2801 2971 AnTuTu (review of the overall performance of the phone in various fields) Name of the phone Galaxy A52s <//strong> Honor 50 Overall score 506432 470348 GFX Manhattan ES 3.0 (Graphics offscreen review, Graphic quality provided by the display is not considered) Phone name Galaxy A52s Honor 50 Points 56 56 GFX Manhattan ES 3.0 (onscreen graphics power, graphics quality presentation Is intended by the display) Phone name Galaxy A52s Honor 50 Points 49 48
In general, by considering the results of different tests, we can assure you that both phones will meet your needs in exactly the same way. In fact, whatever the Honor 50 can do, the Galaxy A52s will definitely do. So there is no difference between the two products unless we examine two phones with two different amounts of RAM.

On paper, except for the main camera, the other cameras are not very different. Again, megapixels should not mislead you into thinking that the picture or video quality of a phone is necessarily better because of the higher megapixel camera. but there will definitely be some differences between the two phones. In the field of ultra-wide photography, on paper, it is superior to the Samsung representative. It remains to be seen what will happen in practice. Other cameras such as selfie, macro and depth measuring have exactly the same specifications, except that the selfie camera can only shoot in FHD resolution at 30 frames per second, while the selfie camera used in the Galaxy A52s can function like the main camera. Demonstrate.
The user interface of the Honor and Samsung camera is quite simple and has no special complexity. . Apart from that, representing the Koreans also has some more attractive features such as Single Take. Both phones support night mode to help the user in low light environments. Now it's your decision to look at the pictures below to see which product best meets your expectations.
It should be noted that the 108-megapixel Honor 50 camera captures images with a output of 12 megapixels by default, combining 9 pixels to one pixel, while your representative Msung uses a 4-to-1 pixel combination and offers 16-megapixel output. The Galaxy A52s ultra-widescreen camera is also capable of capturing 4K video at 30 frames per second, while its dealer can only shoot at 1080p with the same widescreen camera, which is a clear advantage over the Samsung dealership. .
Both videos performed really well. Especially the Galaxy A52s, which achieved amazing results thanks to the use of image stabilization in both the main camera and the ultra-wide camera. The Honor 50's electronic anti-shake also performs well and can counteract all the vibration caused by walking. The first video, the Honor 50 in 4K resolution with electronic image stabilization, the second video, the Galaxy A52s in the same resolution, the third video, the Galaxy A52s in 1080P ultra-wide camera with various image stabilization modes, the fourth video, the Honor 50 with the ultra-wide camera in the same resolution At 30 frames per second.Download
In general, both the Galaxy A52s and the Honor 50 Two models are considered the best intermediaries now that you can buy them in the price range of 10 to 12 million tomans. but there are definitely a number of differences between the two that may make you prefer one over the other.
You have a curved display and you also want to get a free handsfree box and silicone case, the Onr 50 will be the best option. but if you want a rich user interface, battery life, software support time, video quality, optical image stabilization, a better selfie camera, and of course a plastic-bodied product, the Galaxy A52s could be a better choice. In general, the strengths and weaknesses of each phone can be categorized under.
