Camera Quality

The Galaxy A54 5G has 50MP primary sensor, 12MP ultra-wide, and 5MP macro sensor while there is a 32MP selfie shooter on the front.

Now, I don’t know what Samsung has done but the 50MP sensors take great images under good lighting conditions. 

Of course, the images are not as natural as Google Pixel 7 but it’s not worst either.

The low-light photography is kind of okay, it’s not the worst or the best, it’s kind of average and it can be improved with an OTA update.

So let’s hope that some of the updates will improve the low-light photography.

I feel that no brands in the mid-budget segment work on the ultra-wide lens whether 50MP or even 12MP.

12MP ultra-wide lens,

Use this sensor when there is a good amount of light around the sensor, don’t try to take images at night otherwise, you will regret it afterward. Always, use the primary sensor under low lighting.

The 5MP macro sensor is good and it does what it suppose to do.

Back to the bigger 32MP front camera…

Samsung has done what brands like RealMe, OPPO, Xiaomi and even Vivo does with their front camera

What I’m saying is, the selfie will come out a bit saturated and a bit on the whiter side, and again, you can’t do anything about it unless and until you want to Photoshop it.

The videos

The rear cameras can shoot videos at 4K@30fps & 1080p@30fps while the front camera can shoot videos at 4K@30fps & 1080p@30/60fps.

The quality of the video is great when there is enough light around the primary sensor but when it comes to low lights, the sensor suffers a lot.

For example, under low lights, the videos will have noise and the sensor will soften the objects, so this is not a premium experience from any area.

Overall, the Galaxy A54 5G has good cameras for the price it comes but it’s not the best, it’s okay cameras and it can be improved.

Display Quality

The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G has a 6.40-inches 120Hz sAMOLED display.

By the way, the phone has an optical in-display fingerprint sensor, so yes, it won’t work if your fingers are wet.

The 1000 nits brightness is good enough to use a smartphone outdoor

you won’t face any sort of problem while taking calls or reading message

The display  doesn’t have the huge bezels but yes, it’s not symmetrical bezels as we have seen on the Nothing Phone 1.

Overall, the display quality is solid and you won’t face any kind of problems while playing games or even watching movies on Netflix.


The Galaxy A54 5G is powered by Exynos 1380 (5 nm) SoC and runs on OneUI 5.1 based on Android 13.

OneUI 5.1 is feature-rich Android skin and it has improved a lot. Also, Samsung has provided full OneUI support, unlike their Galaxy M Series smartphones.

By the way, Exynos 1380 is comparable to Snapdragon 778G, so you get an idea about the performance.

So let’s say, you’re that person who loves to play games, uses social media, takes photos & videos, and much more than stay away from the Galaxy A54 5G

The Galaxy A54 5G is for everything except for gaming.


No, 3.5 mm audio jack but it does have a stereo speaker with Dolby Atmos support.

By the way, 60% of the volume comes from the bottom speaker while the remaining comes from the top speaker.

Again, the call quality is rock solid, with no issues whatsoever.

Battery Life

Samsung says Galaxy A54 5G will last for two full days with normal usage but that’s not true at all.

If you’re a heavy user then you can expect the battery to last for about a day

but if you’re a normal user then you will have to charge your device the next day otherwise, you will have to use the 25W charger.

By the way, the Galaxy A54 5G has a 5,000mAh battery with 25W charging support and yes, Samsung didn’t provide a charger in the box

For reference, the Samsung Branded 25W charger will cost about 1,099.


Galaxy A54 5G is a good phone but it's pricey, so if you're okay paying 10k premium for Samsung Brand then go for it otherwise, skip it and take look at OnePlus 11R 5G.
