Samsung Galaxy A32 5G thread


Recommended Posts

As T-Mo is starting a promotion for free 5G phone upgrades using this model, starting a new thread for anyone interested.  Here's some reviews I've found from various sources on this model (or at least comparing it vs the other currents of the line and even one that throws in an S20 FE comparison):

Does the A32 5G have standalone 5G out of the box or does it need an update like the S20 FE?

I'd imagine it's enabled out of the box, there is a dialer code which I forget atm to check.

 

It's *#2263#, go to NR Band Preferences and it should show any and all 5G bands enabled.

I forgot about that.  Will check it out when I get home.  Thanks.

Looks like the A32 5G might not have SA yet. 

On the *#2263# screens, my S20 FE seems to show SA as well as NSA.  My A32 does not seem to show those indicators.  I could be missing something or misreading something.

How do I shrink the screenshot file down to post it?

Upload to a free image site and post the link.

@mikejeep - Curious to hear your thoughts on this device after using it for a bit, whenever you get the chance to chime in.  Both just general impressions of the device as well as whatever distinction you perhaps can provide in terms of RF performance against others better known devices, both 4G & 5G alike.

Can bands be turned off?  How is SCP performance?

    • Columbus Sprint conversion site to T-Mobile update: tower hands arrived before sunset and unloaded. Said Sprint stuff will be demoed first, but Microwave and b25 will remain. Will only be adding AWS. Said no n41, 600 or 700.  So I took pictures of antennas but not a big pile under tarp. Personally think they are not allowed to admit and 5g equipment. Lots of wackos out there. Checking on the visible antennas, there are three Nokia VBNAEHC-01, which are AirScale MAA 64T64R 192AE B41 320W AEHC (AAEHC) capable of 5g.  There will also be larger racks with plenty of room for them to stand on.
    • *#0011# - This code shows the status information of your GSM network such as registration status, GSM band, etc.;
    • Rather than upgrade all my lines from Magenta to Max I stayed on Magenta 2.0 and when I need UHD or more HotSpot I just add the $15/mo GoMax AddOn when I need it and remove it when I'm done. That costs me $15 for the month. Rather than taking the $30/mo hit permanently to upgrade the entire account (7 Lines/3 Paid). Since I'm paying for all the lines I don't care if any of the other ones have UHD etc. 🙃
    • Pretty incredible. Of course, I wonder what percentage of Magenta Max Plan users forget to activate (or don't activate) UHD streaming on their devices.
    • I couldn't stay away for long, gonna return the iPhone I told myself I wouldn't do this but iPhone just doesn't work for me, tried giving it a weekend but being back on my Ultra feels natural iPhone is slow and laggy lol oh well.
