    So while they say this phone is “renewed” I can tell that this was a display model on account of the square sticky residue left over from the display holder. The phone was in decent shape but had chipped paint on the top right corner and sticky residue previously mentioned. I would buy at your own risk. Samsung needs to get a new QA team if this is their standard for renewed phones. Came with a Samsung charger and a short USB-C to USB-C cable. The phone works great.

    Also, if you call PureTalk and they say the phone doesn’t work don’t listen to them. I was able to go to their android troubleshooting site on my own and follow the steps to get the phone working. So yes it does work for puretalk.

    -phones in good conidtion
    -everything works well
    -does not come with the same amount of junk as carrier specific phones
    -Works on the Cricket network

    Nit picks
    -includes tiny chips in the screen that does not affect viewing
    -second phone does not come with the same available buttons as mine (microphone access, battery protector, bedtime mode, scan QR code, etc)
    -May present an error in the form of a download message if turned off wrong
    -second phone was nearly dead when I went to turn it on

    when I inserted T mobile SIM, it said emergency call ONLY. I took the phone to T mobile because I thought my SIM might not be compatible to 5 G…I assumed because it works well on my 4 G phone.

    T mobile staff told me that unlocked ATT phone is locked in special way. I must call them and give MEI #. I could have done it because the phone is great, except fingerprint sensor isn’t working ! Tks for 2 days shipping, so considering. Tks for approving for refund. Great seller!

    Just a thought, maybe the seller should call ATT and give MEI# prior to shipping to customers ! He probably didn’t know it. Phone nowadays is more complicated than before with high technology, ability.

    This renewed Samsung Galaxy A52 was basically a brand new phone. For a mid-tier phone, it performs flawlessly. It has a brighter screen than my S20+ and is a really efficient ‘smart’ phone.

    I bought this item, in the description the seller put dual Sim, but I received a one Sim item

    Updated for Battery

    1 Capacity – It appears to have come with about 95% of new A52 5G battery capacity.
    2 Charging – Using the charging brick and cable that came in the box it takes about an hour to charge from 25% to 85%. Using the Samung 4.0 battery saving feature I have the phone set at 85% maximum charge
    Note: I have the cable plugged into a UPS and not directly into the electrical outlet in the wall. Charging might be faster if charging directly from an electrical outlet.
    3 Discharging – Maybe six or so hours of battery with continous video and audio streaming. A full day’s use of mixed use depending on how many hours you actually use apps on your phone. Updating apps especially if you have a lot of them in addition to the Google and Samsung apps that come with the phone could use up to 5% of your battery charge during a single update session if you don’t update daily. Google app updates are big battery users.

    Overall the battery is okay. Not great and not awful especially if you take the time to optimize your phone using Samsung’s optimization features including Sleep and Deep Sleep. I don’t know how much the use of the phone app drains the phone as I am not a big phone talker so no point in checking.

    On a personal note. I am not a big talker nor do I stream video or audio from my phone though I keep the phone on 24/7. I am getting several days of use from a single charge to 85%
    I received the phone on Saturday three days ahead of schedule. Also received the case on Saturday, one day ahead of schdule.

    It was clear from the box the A52 5G came in that it was a renewed phone. I didn’t see any scratches on the display. Since I keep the phone is a case like I have all my phones I didn’t bother looking for scratches or marks on the back, The seller has a 98% rating on Amazon

    Anyway. I used Samsung’s switch app to move all my stuff from my Tab A7 to the A52 5G. It took a while, a little over an hour. Not all the apps moved over so I manually added the few that didn’t

    This morning the phone received Android 12 along with Samsung UI 4.0. A definite improvement over Android 11 and UI 3.1. One of the new features of UI 4.0 under Settings is a hardware test app. Since the phione is renewed I was glad to see that. I used it to check out all the hardware componentsm except facial recognition, which I am not using at the moment and they all checked out fine.

    Interesting, that all the Samsung apps on the phone udated from the Galaxy Store after 12.0 x 4.0 were completely installed.

    Now for a few comments about the A52 5G

    So far no problem with my ISP accepting the phone. Just switched the sim card and also the SSD card from my A12. Both the phone and the card worked fine right after intalling them in the A52 5G.

    Not overwhelmingly fast or slow. A nice speed for what I use a phone for. I am not a gamer so I can’t comment on that.

    The display while not great in the bright sun is more than readable outdoors in the bight sun. The adaptive display feature works fine and doesn’t dim the display too much in the dark.

    The audio without headphones or a bluetooth speaker while not the quality you get with those is loud enough without them

    I can’t comment on the battery life at this time since I just got the phone along with an included fast charger brick and cable. Charged it when I got it and again during the update to 12.0 x 4.0, So in the less than three days that I have had the phone it has done heavy work on two of those days which obviously affects the battery drainage.

    As far as the in display fingerprint scanner goes. I knew before hand that it has gotten a lot of unfavorable reviews. I am using it regulary even to open apps. To wake the phone tap once to bring up the location of the scanner, then place your finger on that spot. It works fine though it is a bitt slow. You have to hold your finger on the scanner for a couple of seconds before it opens up whatever.

    I expect the battery will be fine since the phone is less than a year old and how many charges can one do in less than a year? As the phones sytems softwarew learns and tunes itself and with some tweaks I imagine the battery life will be more than good enough.

    One last thing. The A52 5G though it has the same display size 6.5″ as the A12 is lighter and narrower than the A12. I have small hands and it is a comfortable fit. I can’t speak about one haned use since I have never used only one hand on any of my phones. Hold the phone tight and secure from dropping it with my left and and operate it with my right hand.

    Not my favorite phone but if I had to I would buy again..I just don’t like the way the apps are set up etc.
    It is exactly how described and was in great condition!
