Galaxy A23 vs Moto G52: which one maintains value for money with more differentials? | Comparative

The Galaxy A23 and the Moto G52 are two basic intermediaries that seek to provide the user with some differentials in the segment. They assimilate in many configurations, while other characteristics are quite distinct.

In another direct classic between Samsung and Motorola, which one stands out in this cost-benefit category? Let’s check the answer in this TechMarkup Comparison.

Design and connectivity

Samsung Galaxy A23

As we have two more basic intermediaries here, their design does not bring any innovation. Both are made of plastic on the sides and back, with a smooth and glossy finish, which ends up getting dirty easier.

Even in the camera block, there is nothing new in relation to other models from each manufacturer, whether in the bouncing rectangular layout of the A23, or the oval shape of the G52. The duo also doesn’t offer any liquid and dust resistance certification.

Motorola Moto G52

The Moto has the advantage over its rival, as it has a more compact and lightweight body and comes with a hole-punch notch on the screen, against a drop-shaped one on the Galaxy. In the biometric reader, the manufacturers chose to place the sensor integrated into the power button.

Both offer expansion by memory card, but only the Korean has a dedicated slot, without having to share the space with the second carrier chip. Whichever you choose, you’ll find fifth-generation Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as NFC, which allows for contactless payments.

Motorola surpasses Samsung in design benefits. That’s why she takes the lead in the duel.

Screen

Both Galaxy and Moto come equipped with a 6.6-inch screen with Full HD+ resolution. It’s just that we have different materials around here. The A23 has an LCD display, which ends up being well below in brightness, color calibration and viewing angle, compared to the OLED panel of the G53.

Motorola also wins in the far superior front use, thanks to the smaller edges and the more discreet notch. However, only Samsung offers Gorilla Glass 5 protection. At least on both sides you’ll get a 90 Hz refresh rate, for smoother animations.

Again, it’s a point for the Moto G52.

Sound

While Samsung preferred to leave only a mono speaker in its middle, Motorola finally bet on a stereo audio system. This gives the G52 more user immersion than the A23. Looks like the game has turned, doesn’t it?

The sound power is another strength of the Moto, which also delivers the best balance between bass, mids and treble. Dolby Atmos is supported on both, but on the Galaxy the feature is limited to headphones only.

And by the way, both contain the P2 standard connector, so you can use any accessory on them. Only Motorola sends the phone in the box.

In this way, it is one more point for the G52.

System

These devices have Android 12 installed natively. Don’t expect lag-free security packages on them, it’s just that Samsung is going to give more time for updates to the “little robot” than Motorola.

None of them support 5G technology, which means limiting the mobile network for the future. Their 90 Hz display helps with fluidity, but the A23’s lack of software optimization makes the experience heavier than the G52’s little-modified interface.

Moving on to features, the Galaxy does not have many of the important features of more expensive models, such as the Always-on Display, due to the lack of an AMOLED display, but it will still have functions such as Secure Folder and Smart View. The Moto stands out for the customization of the biometric sensor and the gestures to activate the camera and quickly turn on the flashlight.

Greater longevity, against a clean interface and more popular tools. One point for each.

Performance

Samsung Galaxy A23

Motorola Moto G52

On both sides we find the Snapdragon 680 platform and 4 GB of RAM. Same settings, same performances? This is not what we see in our tests. The Moto was 20 seconds faster than the Galaxy, highlighting the higher speed when opening applications.

In the benchmarks, the dispute is already more balanced, with the two scoring practically the same grades, either on AnTuTu or on Geekbench indicators. As the specifications are more modest, don’t expect above-average performance in more demanding games. In turn, light games run without major problems.

The Moto G52 scores the point in this regard.

Motorola Moto G52

Both Motorola and Samsung have put a 5,000mAh battery in their smartphones. However, again, the same numbers do not represent similar results in practice. The standardized tests that we carried out showed a longer autonomy on the Galaxy, which is more than three hours ahead of the Moto.

When it comes to charging, the G52’s 33W adapter gets the better of the A23’s 15W. This results in 20 minutes less plug-in delay for the Moto G.

Samsung scores for greater autonomy; while Motorola scores for the fastest charge.

Camera

The Galaxy comes with four rear cameras, while the Moto has a triple set. The two led by a 50 MP main sensor. Overall, we have similar photographic quality in them, with good images in well-lit places, but there is a loss of detail in more complex scenarios. In dark environments, the G52’s night mode ends up being more efficient in improving the photos taken.

Their ultrawide doesn’t disappoint during the day, even with a great distance to the main one. Here the A23 captures more of the locations, only it lags a bit behind the competitor at full resolution.

Both have a macro lens that suffers from the same defects. It suffers from low resolution and lack of autofocus. Only the Korean has put a blur lens on its intermediary, which has its hits, but makes the captures darker at night. In turn, the rival prefers to use the ultrawide to generate the portrait mode, even with errors depending on the scenario.

With an overall quality a little above, Motorola scores this time.

Photos taken with the Samsung Galaxy A23

The A23 and G52 shoot only in Full HD. Overall quality is good, as is the agile focus. Stereo sound capture does better on the Galaxy, as the audio is a little muffled on the Moto. Another advantage of the Korean is in the presence of optical stabilization, which manages to deal with the shakes more efficiently than the rival’s electronics.

Here, it’s Samsung who takes the point.

Photos taken with the Motorola Moto G52

These smartphones record good selfies as long as there is no light behind. Under these conditions, the bottom is burst. At night, the granules are more apparent and require having a light source nearby. Despite having a lower resolution front camera, the overall quality of the Galaxy’s recordings hits better on sharpness and contrast compared to the Moto. In addition, the two are nothing more than Full HD in front recordings.

It’s point for the A23.

Price

Both the Galaxy A23 and the Moto G52 arrived in Europe for the same suggested price of R$2,000. The pair has already shown a significant drop in market value, but the Korean can still be found at a slightly lower cost.

In this way, Samsung takes the last point here.

Conclusion

In the final score, Galaxy ended up being behind Moto in the number of positive points. The A23 still offers the system with greater longevity and the battery with superior autonomy, despite not charging faster. Not to mention the cameras with better videos and selfies, even being behind in the photos with the rear set.

The G52, on the other hand, has differentials that end up weighing more in the dispute. We are talking about the more modern, compact and lighter design than the rival, apart from the brighter OLED screen, the presence of a stereo sound system and the faster performance. It also offers the most popular features even with its virtually unmodified interface.

If the difference in the market is not that big, it may be a better deal to invest a slightly higher amount to have the benefits that Motorola delivers between these two phones.
