Review Summary

Samsung has expanded its mid-range Galaxy A series by launching two new phones – A34 5G and A54 5G. Today we will review the latter, Samsung Galaxy A54 5G. The phone boats premium looks at a mid-range price.

Apart from looks, you get a potent chipset for everyday performance paired with a 120HZ AMOLED display for a fantastic content consumption experience. The A54 5G packs a big 5000mAh battery to give a two-day battery backup.

On the other hand, it only comes with 25W fast charging support, which is quite slow for this price. Keeping that aside, is it the best phone under 40K? Let’s find out in this Samsung Galaxy A54 5G review.

  • Premium design
  • 120Hz AMOLED display 
  • Solid performance 
  • Good primary camera
  • Impressive battery life

Samsung Galaxy A54 Design and Build

Samsung Galaxy A54 gives out a premium smartphone vibe at the first glance. It looks very similar to the flagship Samsung Galaxy S23 from the back panel. You get a glass back with a matte finish which provides a good in-hand feel.

The curved edges also offer a firm grip in the hands. The camera lenses at the back look exactly the same as seen on the S23. I have the violet colour option with me which looks very good. The phone is also available in two other colour options: Graphite and Lime.

Samsung Galaxy A54 backside

Overall, Samsung Galaxy A54 looks like a premium flagship smartphone and anyone can tell that. The right side of the phone has a power button and volume rockers. The top side only has the SIM card slot. Lastly, the bottom has the type-C port and primary speaker.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Camera

Samsung Galaxy A54 features a triple camera setup on the back which includes a 50MP main camera. The other two lenses include a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 5MP macro camera. Front side has a 32MP selfie camera housed inside the punch-hole cut-out.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Camera

The main camera takes some impressive shots in the daylight conditions. The images captured were clear and packed with details. The colours looked vibrant and the dynamic range was wide. The portrait shots were also good with on-point edge detection.

Low-light pictures were fine. Details were there but the images has noise. The dedicated night mode helped to boost the overall images. Ultra-wide shots were decent. The detail level was good but only until you didn’t zoom in to the images.

The 32MP front camera takes superb selfies. Selfies I took were sharp and clear. The skin tones looked natural to me and the overall details were good.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Battery and Charging

Samsung Galaxy A54 packs a big 5000mAh battery which offers a solid battery backup. By saying solid, I mean a two-day battery life on casual usage. I got more than 6 hours of screen on time.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Battery

Even if you are a heavy user, you will still get a full day of usage from it. While the battery life is good, the charging speed is not. It supports only 25W fast charging which is not really fast. It takes less than 2 hours to fully charge the phone if you have the 25W adaptor.

Why I’m saying ‘if’ is because Samsung does not provide a charger in the box, which is again a disappointment.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Display

Samsung Galaxy A54 comes with an FHD+ 6.4 inches Super AMOLED display and it’s fantastic. I assure you that you will have no complaints about the display of the A54. It’s vibrant, clear, and delivers an amazing viewing experience.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Display

It has a 120Hz refresh rate and a peak brightness of 1000 nits. Not only it feels smooth during everyday use, but the touch response of the display is also good. Scrolling through Instagram reels feels like butter.

It gets pretty bright outdoors. I did not face any issues while using the phone under direct sunlight. The icons and texts appear sharp and clear. I even watched some videos on YouTube and my viewing experience was really good.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Display quality

The thin bezels on all sides help to enhance the overall experience. It comes with Widevine L1 support and HDR playback support (for YouTube).

Samsung Galaxy A54 Performance and Software

Samsung Galaxy A54 is powered by the Samsung Exynos 1380 chipset which is paired with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. If we talk about performance, the phone glides through everyday tasks. Apps opened up swiftly and switching between apps was seamless.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Performance

It can even handle intensive use like gaming and photo/video editing. In order to test the performance, I played a bunch of heavy games on it, including Ashalpt 9 and Apex Legends Mobile.

Both the games ran flawlessly on medium to high settings. I played for about half an hour, and the phone was a bit warm on the backside which is normal.

Samsung Galaxy A54 5G runs on One UI 5.1, which is based on Android 13. It’s really good to see that Samsung has launched the phone running on the latest Android version out-of-the-box. The whole UI feels easy and simple to navigate.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Software

There are some pre-installed apps like Byju’s, Snapchat, Prime Video, Truecaller, Netflix, Spotify and a few more. Well, of course, you can uninstall them from the settings.

Samsung Galaxy A54 bloatware


Samsung Galaxy A54 is a solid mid-range 5G smartphone. Coming with a premium design and solid build quality, the Galaxy A54 looks close to a flagship phone. Apart from the looks, the phone performs equally good as well.

I did not face any issues in everyday usage, even while playing games. The display quality is really good and the phone offers a superb battery backup. Yep, 25W fast charging support isn’t really fast. But apart from that, everything is darn good.
