Samsung Galaxy A72 Malaysia Review
There are hundreds of different types of mid range smartphones in the market right now. To choose the best mid range smartphone is tough but finding the right one is easier. When Samsung launched their new Samsung A series a few weeks ago, many people were very excited as the mid range smartphone series have arrived in Malaysia and Samsung Galaxy A72 is the top of this series. After using the Samsung Galaxy A72, this is our honest review.
Before we start, this is not our first Samsung Galaxy A series as we purchased Samsung Galaxy A7 a few years ago. This year, Samsung launched the Galaxy A32, A52 and A72 with amazing specifications, great cameras, awesome colours and affordable pricing.
We did a quick Samsung Galaxy A72 Unboxing and First Impression video on Youtube, you can watch the video too below.
We have been using Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G for a while and this Samsung Galaxy A72 is considered the mini version of it.
The phone looks small but actually it is 6.7” Super AMOLED Full HD Screen. The first time you hold the phone, you get a good grip at it and it is very light too. The screen comes with 90Hz and the Full HD Screen is good enough for daily usage including social media postings, video calls as well as gaming.
The premium plastic texture is nice to feel and it leaves no thumbprints behind. The awesome violet colour is striking so whenever we use the phone, someone will looked at it especially the design of the camera notch. It is 2021, we need a smartphone with trendy colour.
The Samsung Galaxy A72 comes with expandable storage and external memory up to 1TB with the microSD card. If you do a lot of photography and video, please get a high speed memory as slow memory microSD card and slow your smartphone.
The phone comes with stereo speakers and kids love watching Youtube with it. For Samsung Galaxy A72, it also comes with audio jack so you still can use your wired earphones or headphones.
The Samsung Galaxy A72 is also IP67 rating which is water and dust resistant and it also comes with built in Samsung Knox—Samsung’s defense-grade security system that safeguards personal information and data in real-time.
You can use the phone for almost a full day thanks to the 5,000mAh battery capacity. Do you need a powerbank anymore?
The most important part for us is the photography. This quad camera of the Samsung Galaxy A72 is a show stopper. It has similar design with Samsung Galaxy S21 series but this design looks neater and cleaner.
The 64MP camera can shoot vivid and crisp photos and videos with ease. This, it can also instantly turn your favorite moments from 4K videos into 8MP high-resolution images with 4K Video Snap.
The Scene Optimizer uses AI to shoot with optimal settings for 30 categories of images and backgrounds such as food, landscapes, and pets.
Whether filming the latest dance trend or capturing a new skateboard trick, OIS (optical image stabilization) ensures pictures and videos come out sharp and steady. No need to miss an important moment anymore because of low lighting. Night mode uses multi-frame processing, resulting in a bright and crisp image even in the dark.
It also comes with a new Fun Content Capture. It adds style and unique flair to content using AR Emoji and My Filter. Additionally, you can now apply AR Lenses from Snapchat with Fun Mode when snapping content from the native camera app.
The Samsung Galaxy A72 is priced at RM 1,899 (retail price) in Malaysia and we honestly feel that it is worth to buy. The design, the usability, the speed, the battery size, the quad camera and to be honest, this feels like a flagship smartphone already.
Of course there are many other brands and competitors out there but at this price point, we highly recommend Samsung Galaxy A72. This is our Samsung Galaxy A72 Malaysia Review.
