Samsung's Galaxy A series has been a crowd favorite for years, offering a great balance between performance, design, and affordability. The latest addition to the A series in India, the Galaxy A54, brings the best of Samsung's experience to a mid-range phone.

Design and Aesthetics:

The Galaxy A54 boasts a new design philosophy, similar to the Galaxy S23, with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a flat glass sandwich design. The size of the phone is perfect for both large-screen and small-screen smartphone users, offering a balance between compactness and practicality. The Awesome Violet color of the phone is trendy and reminiscent of the purple iPhone 12 but with a curved frame. The slightly curved edges make it comfortable to hold. However, the plastic frame of the phone may make it feel cheap, considering its price range.

Display:

Samsung's display technology is renowned, and the Galaxy A54's screen doesn't disappoint. With a thicker bottom bezel than its predecessor, the display performs well and even supports HDR video playback on YouTube. The screen is visible even under direct sunlight, with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits. Its flat design also eliminates ghost touches, but a curved display like that of the Realme 10 Pro+ would have given it a more premium look.

Cameras:

The Samsung Galaxy A54 features a triple camera setup, including a 50MP primary wide-angle camera, 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and 5MP macro lens, along with a 32MP selfie camera. The camera performance is above average and can capture good shots in various lighting conditions.

Everyday Usage and Performance:

While not the fastest phone in terms of benchmark numbers, the Galaxy A54 powered by an Exynos 1380 processor with 8GB RAM is capable of handling everyday tasks without any issues. You can play demanding games like COD: Mobile and Asphalt 8 smoothly but expect some heat around the camera area.

Software Experience:

The Galaxy A54's software experience is impressive, with Android 13 OS and OneUI 5.1, packed with features. Its overall software experience rivals that of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, with the only noticeable difference being that its fingerprint sensor is slightly slower when unlocking as it uses an optical sensor. The phone comes with some bloatware, but most of it can be uninstalled.

Connectivity and Battery Life:

The Samsung Galaxy A54 is 5G-enabled, supports Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.3, with no issues in voice call quality. Its 5,000 mAh battery delivers over 7 hours of screen-on-time and can last over a day for most users, but heavy gamers may have different results. It supports 25W fast charging but doesn't come with a charger in the box, unlike most phones in its price range.

Verdict:

The Samsung Galaxy A54 is worth considering if you value overall user experience over benchmark numbers. It offers a smooth and stable software experience, an IP67 rating, 4 years of promised Android updates, and a compact form factor. However, if you're a heavy smartphone gamer or prioritize performance above all else, consider other options like iQOO Neo 7 or OnePlus 11R.

In conclusion, the Samsung Galaxy A54 is a great mid-range smartphone that offers an excellent balance between design, performance, and affordability. Its flat display, impressive software experience, and good camera performance make it a good option for those looking for a reliable smartphone without breaking the bank. While it may not be the most powerful phone on the market, it offers enough performance for everyday use and is an excellent choice for most users.
