Our official battery tester works with many popular apps, games and services in specific time cycles until the battery runs out, with a standby time between cycles to monitor consumption in the background. Screen brightness and grid settings are standardized, so we can draw parallels between all patterns that have passed through our work tables.
The applications in the courses, and the specific execution times for each cycle, are:
- 6 minutes of use (each) – WhatsApp, Youtube, MX Player (Offline Video), Spotify, PowerAmp (Offline Music), Chrome;
- 1 minuto (cada) – Pokémon Go, Asphalt 8, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Modern Combat 5 e Injustice;
- 4 minutes of calls on 3G / 4G;
- 2 minutes of use (each) – Facebook, Gmail, and GMaps
After our tests, we came to the following results with the Galaxy A52:
- It took 27 hours 07 minutes to drain the device’s battery;
- The screen stayed on for 13 hours and 06 minutes.
- We ran 19 complete test cycles that included:
- 114 minutes of browsing Chrome;
- 570 minutes WhatsApp, Spotify, PowerAmp, MX Player, YouTube (114 minutes each);
- 114 minutos de jogos (Pokémon Go, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Injustice, Modern Combat 5 e Asphalt 8);
- 114 minutes from Facebook, Gmail, and Google Maps (38 minutes each);
- 76 minutes of 3G / 4G voice calls;
- The most used app was Asphalt 8;
- The least consuming application is PowerAmp;
The Galaxy A52 has made a lot of people dread its 4500mAh battery and pretty powerful hardware, especially when we look at its 90Hz screen. However, Samsung has shown again that it is teaching software optimization, which makes its model produce more than what we saw on the Realme 7 Pro, for example, which has similar hardware and the same battery capacity.
Rivals like Mi 11 Lite phone And the Poco X3 NFC also fails to beat the mark achieved by the Galaxy A52, and if you want a model in the class with better autonomy, you will have a choice within South Korea itself with Galaxy A72.
This shows that you can use the Galaxy A52 all day with games, YouTube videos, and more without worrying about running out of power before the end of the night, while still having enough power for two full days if you simply take it up.
