Although the Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 carry some firsts in the series, it seems that the users of the Galaxy A52, especially on the charging side, will be sad.
Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 models include 25 watt fast charging support. Similar fast charging feature is already available on Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S20 series. Although the 25-watt fast charging feature is an important development for the Galaxy A series, the adapter that comes out of the Galaxy A52’s box may upset those who buy it.
After the launch of the Galaxy A52, when we looked at the opening videos of the phone, it was understood that the adapter included in the box was 15 watts. Yes, the phone is competitive on the price side, but on the Redmi, Realme and OPPO front, there are much faster charging technologies in more affordable phones. Moreover, a lower power adapter does not come out of the box. For example, the Galaxy A72 is also very competitive on the price side, whereas the phone comes with an adapter with 25 watt fast charging support. As you can see, if you want to charge the Galaxy A52 at a speed of 25 watts, you will have to buy an adapter by paying an extra fee.
