The Galaxy A32 5G is an excellent budget 5G option, especially in the US. It directly challenges the OnePlus Nord N200 for the best cheap 5G crown. But don’t be fooled — the A32 still has major shortcomings to account for.

5G has become more prevalent recently, so it’s no surprise to see 5G support appearing in less expensive phones. Samsung’s midrange A models now include 5G, and the cheapest of the lot — the Galaxy A32 5G — lets you enjoy faster networking speeds for $280. That’s a major bargain, even with some serious shortcomings.
