Android 13 update turns on Bluetooth decoding in hardware. A52 5G (Snap 750G) cannot handle it and stutters depending on the source content. The A53 5G (Exynos 1280) does handle it with no problem. No stuttering. On A52 5G, go to dev mode and turn off the hardware decode and restart the phone. Stuttering stops.

A52 is a better choice considering its performance is nearly the same as the A53, headphone jack, almost the same screen time, and cheaper.

Here in the US, for the models that work on both wireless versions that we have, the A53 at $449 is actually cheaper than the A52 at $499. I'll take the newer CPU and GPU for less money.

WeiszGuy, Bro, go on Amazon, there are the A52s selling for around €310, which doesn't come anywhere close to the 778g, like nah, this year you'd be better off with an S21 fe which is on amazon comes at around €530 so yh...

Galaxy A53 processor (Exynos 1280), Compared to its previous-gen, A52 (Snapdragon 750g), has seen significant improvements in different areas such as lithography, CPU and GPU frequency, memory type, and Bluetooth version. But as long as the A52s are available on the market, it isn't worth buying. We look forward to releasing A53s to make a more fair judgment.

The only reason they created the A52s, is because chips were in shortage as the 720G(in Europe) and 750G(In the US), so they made the a52s to satisfy Samsung users, but man why do they make the same phone, and put a more powerful chip for the people in the US? Like how if can you put a 750G in the US phones and a 720G in Europe, like nah mate, you get a pass from me.

Stefan, What do you mean? The A52 4G has 720G, and the A52 5G has 750G. Both are available in Europe.
