This is the Samsung Galaxy A54. Samsung’s A series devices this year have been officially released, and they adopted a design strategy I’m sure will make more sales for them as there are a lot of people that will buy a Galaxy A series just because it looks like their Flagships.

Samsung Galaxy A54 Full Specifications
I don’t think there’s any point talking about unboxing cos nothing has changed. You still get just the device and a USB cable. No headphone jack, but thankfully we still get the SD card slot should you need it. It’s a dual Hybrid SIM slot that allows you to use either a SIM card and an SD card, or two SIM cards with no SD card.
Design & Build Quality
The A54 has 5G connectivity, but in Nigeria, you still cannot access MTN’s 5G Network I guess something for Samsung and MTN to come together in agreement.
The Galaxy A54 comes in about 4 colors as marketed by Samsung, but it seems only the Awesome Lime, Black and White are available in Nigeria at the moment.
Samsung has adjusted the build quality this year, changing the back to Gorilla Glass 5 which you can say is more premium build quality, but at the expense of durability. As we know, glass breaks if dropped hard, so you might want to get a case on it.
Unlike the A14 which had about 4 versions, the Galaxy A54 is the same everywhere, at least for now, running the Exynos 1380 Chipset, I’d say a Snapdragon 778G equivalent at least on benchmarks. We’ll talk more about the performance later. The Galaxy A54 while having the new Samsung unified design language, and is a little smaller than the A53 of last year, it’s actually slightly heavier, probably due to the glass on the back. It’s a glossy finish on all colors of the A54 by the way.
Samsung remains one of the very few manufacturers that offer IP67-level water and dust resistance on their midrange smartphones. So you can flex dipping it in water if you like. Can’t say I don’t like Samsung’s design decision this year. It looks clean, you can probably fool anyone into thinking it’s one of the S23 series, at least until you turn to the display and notice that bezel size which actually appears thicker than what we had on the A53.
Display-wise, we still get a 1080p Super AMOLED display with a peak brightness of up to a thousand nits, that’s 200 nits brighter than its predecessor. The display looks good as you would expect from Samsung, but when you put it next to the A53 you might prefer the colors from the A53.
I’m not sure what Samsung did to the display here but it’s not as vibrant or should I say appealing as the A53. It’s personal preference though. You might not be able to notice this on camera, and it isn’t something that will bother you unless you’re nit-picky like me and placing the display next to another AMOLED device.
It has the tough Gorilla Glass 5 protection and an 82.9% screen-to-body ratio that’s about 2.5% more bezels than the A53. We get a 120hz high refresh rate display, the same as with its predecessor, but this one is adaptive, meaning it can switch between 60 and 120hz as needed by the device.
Processor & Performance
So far, it has been good and I’ll say a lot better than the experience on the A53. You need to have used or experienced the A53 to truly appreciate how much of an upgrade in performance you’re getting with the Galaxy A54. It is smoother and doesn’t get the kinds of freezes or lags I experienced with the A53. I couldn’t help but blame it on the Exynos 1280.
Although One UI 5.1 made it much better it still wasn’t quite up to expectations. There are probably users that had a better experience with the A53 than mine though. I hope so on the A54 however, the Exynos 1380 seems to be handling things just fine. No lags or freezes.
Even on the gaming performance, while we still have the usual lack of gaming optimization for Exynos, it is consistent with frame rates for the most part and gives you a much better gaming experience than you could ever get from its predecessor.
With Call of Duty mobile you can get max frame rate but maximum graphics is medium. A phone of this price should be capable of playing at higher graphics but it’s more an Exynos problem. This might change with time though, and it really is dependent on the game you’re playing.
On Apex Legends for example you can play it with high graphics and a high frame rate. That’s a maximum of 50fps, and it’s consistent with no frame drops that affect your gameplay like with the A53. It also maintains a steady warm temperature for certain periods of gaming. I’ve not really gone through sessions over 30 minutes yet though.
The device temperature on Apex Legends is not as high as with Call of Duty mobile, but on both, nothing abnormal in my experience so far.
Note: The Dimensity 1080-powered Galaxy A34 plays Apex Legends at the same graphics settings and frame rate, as the A54, but plays Call of duty at higher graphics. Do with that information as you see fit.
Software & UI
The software experience here is great as expected, One UI 5.1 on Android 13, and like I mentioned before, it’s a much more stable experience than its predecessor. This will get 4 major OS upgrades, that’s Android 17 guaranteed, and Samsung provides arguably the best software support even on their midrange phones.
Battery Life & Charging
I also found the battery life on the Galaxy A54 pretty impressive. On my first full charge, I got over 7 hours of screen on time with 36% battery left, and it was still learning usage patterns. That’s impressive. The battery capacity is 5000mAh and can charge at 25 watts. That’s if you have a supported 25-watt charger. Samsung is too busy saving the planet to give you one in the box.
In the camera department, it will be safe to say the Galaxy A54 will find it hard to disappoint you. It’s probably best in class but a couple of comparisons will put that to test. It gets one less camera sensor than its predecessor, specifically the depth sensor, which probably was not needed anyway. We have a 50MP sensor for its main camera, that’s different from the 64MP from the A53. It also comes with a 32MP selfie camera.
As I mentioned, you will find its photos satisfying. It’s good with HDR and sharp with detail even when you don’t activate the 50MP mode. Night mode shots also look good, selfies are well-processed with enough detail, including portraits.
It has the ability to shoot videos up to 4K 30fps from both selfie and rear cameras. It has optical image stabilization which works great at 1080p but not as well at 4K. The quality of 4K is great.
Earlier in this post, I mentioned that the A54 does not only need to be a good successor to the A53 but it also needs to fill the vacant shoes left by the A74. I can say it is a good upgrade from the A53 especially on performance and stability.
As for filling the shoes of the A74, I’d say it’s just ok and doesn’t really do that. What I’m trying to say is if you own an A73, you should not be considering the A54. Maybe the A55 next year might fill those shoes. It’s a solid device from my experience so far.
