Samsung Galaxy A52s Users Report Battery Drain, Calling Bugs After Android 12 Update

Samsung rolled out the Android 12 update to users in Europe and India in January

  • Samsung Galaxy A52s was launched in India in September 2021
  • The smartphone is equipped with a Snapdragon 778G SoC
  • Samsung Galaxy A52s was updated to Android 12 earlier this year

Samsung Galaxy A52s users are reportedly complaining of issues after installing the Android 12 update on the smartphone, reporting cases of increased battery drain and problems while receiving calls. Samsung Galaxy A52s smartphone was launched last year as the company's most powerful mid-range smartphone, equipped with a Snapdragon 778G chip along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G was updated to Android 12 earlier this year, with the company's One UI 4.0 skin running on top.

Users have taken to the Samsung Galaxy forums in order to report issues after installing the Android 12 update for the Samsung Galaxy A52s, first spotted by SamMobile. Among the posts on the forum is a recent complaint regarding battery performance on the handset after updating to Android 12. The user claims they experienced reduced battery backup after installing the February security update and resetting their phone.

Similarly, another post by a user posted a few weeks ago claims that their Samsung Galaxy A52s screen goes black after swiping on the screen to receive a call, preventing them from ending the call without using the power button to wake up the screen. According to the post, the issue appears to occur when the smartphone is taken out of the user's pocket.

Meanwhile, an earlier post by another user asks whether it would be possible to stay on Android 11 while receiving security updates, in light of the issues faced by other users. The SamMobile report also states that users are facing performance issues on the Galaxy A52s 5G handset after installing the Android 12 update, including slower interface animations and janky scrolling. However, Gadgets 360 was unable to verify these complaints on the company's forums.

Samsung is yet to acknowledge the issues reported by users and suggest a fix. Gadgets 360 has reached out to the company for a comment. This report will be updated when we hear back.
