As for the sound line from the speaker, the device is in accordance with the smartphone standard. Is providing a clear middle sound Followed by a high-pitched group As for the bass tone, it will be a little thin. According to mobile design limitations Therefore, if you want a more powerful sound Including if you want to use it in editing to create content Then use headphones as well Which can be used both wired and wireless so it is super convenient.
For the Adaptive Fast Charging adapter that comes in the box, it supports a maximum power supply of 15W (9V 1.67A), which is good for charging the 4500 mAh battery of the device as well. As far as testing with the meter, it is found that in Fast Charge mode, the power receiver from the adapter in the box can reach a maximum of 12W if you want to charge as fast as possible. Need to buy an adapter that can supply more than 25W to use.
The important thing for creating content from mobile phones in this era is a quality camera, which A52 5G is good for its price. For example, the rear camera has 4 lenses that support both normal angle, wide angle and macro depth photography. It can also be taken after dissolving. For use in portraits Or easily shoot a subject that would like to emphasize the outstanding character of the subject.
In addition to the camera hardware that we can see outside There is also an OIS shake compensation system built into it for use with normal wide-angle lenses. Integrate with the Super Steady system that is a software-side operation. Make photography And the video is going smoothly. Get a sharper, less flicker-free image, and also improves low-light photography. Because the system can keep the shutter open for up to 4 times longer than before.
Camera mode is quite a variety of Samsung mobile phone style, such as AR Doodle mode that users can draw lines. Draw images to compose photos using the AR technology of the rear camera, including a food shooting mode. Night mode, Super Slow-Mo mode, and Hyperlapse mode are available to easily create desired content from a single mobile device.
Best Shot + Scene Optimizer
Galaxy A52 5G’s AI system will help make photos look even more beautiful, mainly with the Best Shot function that guides the composition in real time. To get the best look Which as far as I tried to see Found that most of them do the job quite well as well, mainly, the system will focus on the object that is likely to be the main focus of the image in the center of the image most of the time.
Another function is Scene Optimizer, which has the system to process a preview of what scene is being captured and adjust the color tone of the image to suit the scene. Night photos, portraits, etc.
Anti-shake system Super Steady
The Super Steady function is a system to help compensate for shaking. For a more stable video Can be turned on / off from the top icon bar conveniently. With a small limitation Is when activated The video resolution that can be shot is only 1080p 30fps, which I tried to find 1080p 30fps is where the stabilization of the device works at its best. (Including the closing episode of Super Steady)
Pro mode for taking pictures / videos
For those who want to use Pro mode because they want to control various settings for their own shooting, there will be a Pro mode to choose from for both still photography and video shooting. Both types can be adjusted for ISO / shutter speed / exposure compensation. (EV) / Focus Distance / White balance and compensation such as contrast, highlight, shadow and color saturation. It can be said that it can be done as well as the top model mobile phones ever.
Single Take mode
This is the mode that Samsung began to include in its top-of-the-line S21 series that were released earlier this year. This is a mode that will make it easier to create photo and video content. It relies on storing multiple images / videos at the same time to shoot a single short video, whether it be a normal angle, wide angle, filtered image, and crop of various shots that are processed by the system. Results come out Resulting in a variety of pictures Ready to use in a wide variety of formats But, of course, it comes with an increased use of the file storage space. You may have to wait to delete some unused image / video files.
Fun mode is a new mode added. It will bring filters from Snapchat to be used to beautify your face. It is similar to the filters in IG that many people are familiar with. But this one is more convenient, it can be enabled from within the camera app of the device. Can be used for both rear camera and front camera. As well as being able to load other filters to use more as well How to use is very easy. Just move the camera to Fun mode and select the desired filter. If the system detects a face in the image Will immediately put a filter As far as you try to use Found that a maximum of 2 filters can be applied per image.
My Filters function
Another interesting addition to the function is My filters, which allows the user to easily create a tint filter of the desired image / video by using the built-in images to create it. Favorite color tone filter Suitable for people who want to control the image tone to the same color tone. Which I think it helps to reduce the time of composing a lot as well. It’s hidden in a button in the top-right corner of the camera app. (It is shaped like a wand)
Which is very easy to create filters. Just press the + button on the far left side of the filter selection bar. Then select the image you want to extract the color tone to use and press Save filter, just that and done. When you use it, slide the filter bar to select the tone you want to use. Then press to take a photo or video immediately
