Samsung has successfully tuned the Galaxy A-series to people’s preferences. The A52 in particular is going to be quite popular, both flavors of the phone were well received in last week’s poll.
The Samsung Galaxy A52 5G came out on top, showing that next-gen connectivity is an important consideration for many. Compared to its 4G twin, it also has an upgraded chipset (Snapdragon 750G vs. 720G) and a higher refresh rate for its screen (120Hz vs. 90Hz).

The 4G version of the Galaxy A52 proved fairly popular in its own right. The extended software support (3 years of OS updates, 4 years security patches) is a major draw and can easily justify the price premium over competing models. Plus, both Galaxy A52s feature OIS on their main camera, which some of the competition lacks.
The Samsung Galaxy A72 proved the least popular option of the three. That 3x telephoto lens should have been its trump card, but ultimately it didn’t amount to much. Right now, it looks like 5G is more important than optical zoom. Samsung will probably release a 5G version of this phone (even the A32 has a 5G version), which will fare a lot better than the Galaxy A72 4G.
