Table Comparison

Out of 18 Categories, the Camon 19 Premier scored 8 while the Samsung Galaxy A52 scored 6. The smartphones were evenly matched in 4 categories.


Both smartphones are very similar but you can point out the differences in the table above. Two of the biggest downsides of the Samsung Galaxy A52 is that the front camera doesn’t have flash and the SIM Tray forced you to choose between a 2nd SIM or an SD card.

The Tecno Camon 18 Premier on the other hand cannot shoot 4K videos although it has quite impressive Gimbal Camera and 60X Zoom capabilities that include the Super Moon feature. But its considerably cheaper than the A52.
