Samsung has made the best Android phone of 2021, the Galaxy S21 Ultra, but at more than $1,000 it's a serious investment. The Galaxy A52 5G has a 64-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization, Phase Detection Autofocus, and an f/1.8 aperture. Portrait mode is decent and finds its subject well, although edge-recognition doesn't challenge more expensive Galaxy models.

The Galaxy A52 has a surprisingly-rich selection of additional Samsung software features. Samsung's Scene optimizer doesn't really make a huge difference in most shots, but when it does, it can still come through and save the occasional still. While the main 64MP camera on the Galaxy A 52 is meant to shoot in a binned 16MP mode by default, there is a 64MP option in the camera UI.
