Let’s jump right in and see the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G and what’s new with Samsung’s latest device.

From the outside, the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G has matte reflective sides with a premium back glass panel and a glossy finish. Samsung removed the camera island that they used to have in their A53 models and replaced it with a similar camera design from the S23 series. The rear camera has an embossed design that is more elevated than the S23 series.

The phone is made with eco-friendly and recycled materials. You might get confused with the A54 and the S23 as the overall feel and design is similar to that of the S23, but the A54 is slightly thicker. Height and width wise, however, it is identical to that of the S23.

The Galaxy A54 has the same button placements to the S23, with the volume and power buttons on the right side of the phone and the speakers and ports are at the bottom. The SIM tray is now located at the top side of the phone. The fingerprint on display is on the screen is still in the same placement.

The display of the A54 is responsive and snappy with a 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display. The choice to switch to adaptive or standard resolution is available which lowers the refresh rate down to 60Hz.

The phone isn’t a fingerprint magnet, so don’t worry about that if you don’t put a case on the Galaxy A54 5G.

    6.4″ screen? (smaller than predecessor A53)
    powerful device? (exynos garbage)
    bang for your buck? (25k for a mediocre SOC)

    this sounds like a sponsored content rather than an honest review.

    there are lots of better phones that are cheaper than this. the more powerful A73 is a wiser choice at a similar price point.
