The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G is the successor to last year’s Samsung Galaxy A53 with significant improvements in terms of design, performance and camera.
However, what is interesting is the price which has not increased and is 100k cheaper for the 8GB + 256GB variant compared to the A53.
Priced at under Rs 6.5 million, some under Rs 6 million, the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G has an IP rating of IP67, a great camera, still has Ultra Wide and can record in 4K. SoC is Exynos 1380 which is close to Snapdragon 778G.
So of course in this article we will discuss in more detail about the Samsung Galaxy A54. Check out the review below.
Samsung Galaxy A54 5G box contents include the unit, USB-C cable, case, documentation and SIM ejector. Unfortunately, there’s no charger, screen protector or case you’ll have to buy yourself.
The design of the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G has undergone significant improvements compared to its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy A53. From the back, the A54 looks similar to Samsung’s flagship phones, namely the S23 and S23+.
The screen is flat, the back cover is flat, the frame still has a slight curve, but it’s not as thin as, say, the A52 series. The A54 is 8.2mm thick and weighs 200g.
The back cover uses Gorilla Glass 5 which makes it more resistant to scratches and has better temperature distribution when you use it to play games.
The Samsung Galaxy A54 is available in Lime, Black, Purple and White color options. In addition, the Samsung Galaxy A54 has IP67 certification for water and dust resistance, which makes it a mid-range smartphone that is safe when exposed to water or dust.
On the right side of the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G are the power button and volume rocker, while on the top side there is a microphone and a hybrid SIM tray that can be chosen between dual SIM or 1 SIM + 1 MicroSD.
At the bottom there are two more microphones, a USB-C port and a stereo speaker grille located on the headphones. The quality of these stereo speakers is significantly better than the previous A series.
Underneath the earpiece is a 32MP, f/2.2, fixed-focus, punch-hole selfie camera. This selfie camera can record videos in 1080p 60fps and 4K 30fps.
The Galaxy A54 5G display is 6.4 inches with Infinity O Display technology, which means this display has a thin bezel design and a hole for the front camera. The display uses a SUPER AMOLED panel that offers sharp picture quality and high contrast.

The screen resolution is FHD+ (1080 x 2400 pixels), so the displayed content will appear very clear and detailed. In addition, the Galaxy A54’s display is also equipped with an adaptive refresh rate of 60-120 Hz, so that your scrolling and gaming experience feels smoother and more responsive.
The Galaxy A54 5G’s display is claimed to have a brightness of up to 1,000 nits, so displayed content is still clearly visible in direct sunlight. However, when used indoors, this screen has a brightness of around 430 nits, which is still bright enough for everyday use.
The Galaxy A54 5G’s display is also equipped with an in-display fingerprint sensor, which allows users to unlock the device quickly and easily.
Apart from this, Always On Display is also available here which allows users to see important information like time, date and notifications without having to unlock the screen.
In the display settings, two display color modes are available, vivid and natural. In our tests, Vivid Mode has a wider color gamut, up to 192% sRGB and 136% DCI P3. Meanwhile, Normal has a color gamut of up to 118% sRGB and 83% DCI P3.
This device has a 50 MP SONY IMX766 main camera with f/1.8 aperture and is equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS).
This main camera is an improvement over its predecessor with the addition of OIS that can now correct for up to 1.5 degrees of shake, resulting in images that are steadier and sharper.
In addition, the main camera of the Galaxy A54 can also record videos in 1080p 60fps and 4K 30fps. In addition, the Slow Motion feature is also available on the Galaxy A54 with a resolution of 720p @ 240 fps and 720p @ 960 fps.
The Galaxy A54 is also equipped with a 12MP ultra-wide camera with f/2.2 aperture, fixed focus and 123°C. This ultra-wide camera can also record video up to 4K 30 fps, just like the main camera.
However, for Ultra Wide, it is not yet available for 1080p 60fps video recording. However, the Ultra Wide feature is still useful for shooting wider subjects and producing images with a larger angle of view.
In addition to the main and ultra-wide cameras, the Galaxy A54 is also equipped with a 5MP macro camera with f/2.4 aperture and fixed focus. This camera is very useful for shooting things at close range and producing sharper details. However, unfortunately, the macro camera does not support video recording.

This device uses ONE UI 5.1 interface with Android 13 base operating system (from the first time you open it).
OS update Samsung promises to update Android 4 times, 5 years security update. No other Android manufacturer has been able to update it so far for the mid-range category. Good job Samsung.
The unique features of OneUI are quite complete here, and they are separated from the app voice, voice adaptation, edge panels, etc. But there is one feature that completely surprised us here. This is a feature that prevents USB power dissipation.
We first spotted this feature on the S23 series and it turns out to be a downgrade on the A54. Enable this feature if you want to play games while the charger is connected.
This prevents the smartphone from heating up quickly during charging due to low power. Similar to overclocking in gaming mobile phones. When we try to measure with a Samsung 25W charger, when the battery is about 40% it works about 18W, but when this feature is activated, the power is only about 4-5W.

- Wi-Fi 6
- Bluetooth 5.1

- Display via USB port: Unfortunately you can’t, this feature is still only for the flagship series.
