Security and performance with Samsung’s new A class

Tech Tools: Samsung Galaxy A54

Samsung Galaxy A54

from €509

You don’t have to spend big money to get a decent smartphone. Take the Samsung Galaxy A54. It may not have the same cachet as the Galaxy S monicker, but it has certainly been influenced by the flagship smartphone.

Lighter on your pocket, the 5G phone has some good features such as Light Boosting technology and Night Mode, to make your low light pictures less murky, and a large camera sensor for blur-free photos and smoother videos. Optical image stabilisation has been improved, too, to remove the shake from videos, and if your images from the triple-lens rear camera have some unwanted shadows or reflections, the upgraded suite of editing tools can help out. The display is Samsung’s Super Amoled technology, with 6.4 inches of space, with a 120Hz refresh rate.


You’ll also get up to five years of security updates guaranteed, and four generations of software updates, so the device should go the distance.
