Samsung Galaxy A72 in the news

Samsung Galaxy A72 product description

The Samsung Galaxy A72 is a large waterproof smartphone with a fast screen and a zoom camera on the back. On top of that, it is equipped with a big 5000 mAh battery that can last you 2 days. We would like to explain to you what else you can get with this A72.

Fluid screen, no 5G

Samsung announced the Galaxy A72 along with the A52 and A52 5G in mid-March 2021. At the time of the announcement, there is still no 5G version of the A72 and that is actually a bit crazy in the year 2021. Still, you can achieve very respectable internet speeds with 4G, but the lack of 5G makes it less future-proof. The housing of the A72 is water and dust resistant. That is not at all a usual feature in the A-series and especially not in this price category. Also neat is that you get a borderless AMOLED screen with 800 nits and 90Hz. So what's in this for you? Thanks to the AMOLED panel, colours are true to life, also readable outdoors and animations look very smooth. Who wouldn't want that?

Camera with 3x optical zoom

In recent years, phone manufacturers only applied a telephoto camera in their most expensive flagships. This allows you to optically zoom in, so that you do not lose quality, as is the case with digital zooming. We were therefore pleasantly surprised that the Galaxy A72 has an 8MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. Digitally, you can even zoom in up to 30x, where the A52 sticks to 10x. It is also nice that this zoom camera is equipped with optical image stabilisation (OIS). Especially when zooming, you want unintended movements to be neutralised, something that OIS does very well. The main camera also has stabilisation and counts 64MP. Enough for razor sharp shots. There is also a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera that allows you to capture a little more and a 5MP macro camera for extreme closeups.

Most important Samsung Galaxy A72 specifications

  • Large 6,7-inch AMOLED screen with punch hole and smooth 90Hz
  • Quad camera with OIS image stabilisation and 3x optical zoom
  • 32MP selfie camera with portrait mode
  • New looks with waterproof IP67 exterior
  • Stereo speakers by AKG
  • 5000 mAh large battery with 25W fast charging
  • 2,3 GHz octa-core processor with 6GB RAM memory
  • 128GB storage memory, expandable up to 1TB
  • Dual SIM (slot shared with memory card)

Battery that lasts two days

Samsung has equipped the A72 with an octa-core processor with 6GB of RAM memory and 128GB of storage memory. If that's not enough, you can insert a memory card up to 1TB. That slot is shared with the 2nd SIM card. Both places do not fit. Inside is also a large 5000 mAh battery with support for fast charging. That goes up to a maximum of 25W. Samsung claims that you can do 2 days with a full charge and we are inclined to believe them. Wireless charging is unfortunately not included. Have we covered everything then? We could tell you more about the stereo speakers that have been tuned by AKG, but you have to listen to them yourself in order to make a good judgement.
