Samsung Galaxy A33 5G review: Better than its predecessor in almost every area

Success model. With its Galaxy A33 5G, Samsung has identified and remedied the weaknesses of the Galaxy A32 5G predecessor. With a 90 Hz AMOLED display, a more modern SoC and a waterproof case, the mid-range smartphone even comes dangerously close to matching the Galaxy A53 5G.

Samsung is relaunching its smartphones from the successful Galaxy A series. Due to high demand, the Galaxy A smartphones have only slowly evolved over the past few years, so why change a successful formula? This year, however, things are somewhat different, as our Galaxy A33 5G review sample shows.

The Galaxy A33 5G contains a few improvements over its Galaxy A32 5G predecessor. Aside from the the slightly smaller form factor (now 6.4 instead of 6.5 inches), the biggest change is the screen: Instead of a low-contrast TFT-LCD, an AMOLED screen is used. A more modern SoC and IP67 certification have also been thrown in.

In terms of case, the Samsung Galaxy A33 5G resembles the Galaxy A32 5G nearly down to the last detail, except for the different form factor. Buyers still get a high-quality and stable plastic chassis, the front of which is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The selfie camera is nested in a teardrop-shaped recess.

The front and back of the Galaxy A33 5G, which is available in white, black, light blue and a bright peach orange, are held together by a smooth and glossy frame. The matte back cover is slightly rubberized, which makes the smartphone feel very good to use. The weight amounts to a light 186 grams.

While the arrangement of the 4 lenses on the back has not changed compared to the Galaxy A32 5G, the design is different. The camera module no longer sits flat in the casing, but clearly protrudes outwards, with the edges blending smoothly into the back cover. Another new feature is the IP67 certification against dust and water.

Equipment: Galaxy A33 5G without audio jack

Samsung offers the Galaxy A33 5G in only one configuration: 6 GB RAM and 128 GB UFS 2.2 storage for around US$ 270. The actual storage space amounts to 98 GB in brand new or factory state. 

Samsung has removed the 3.5 mm jack of the predecessor, so wired audio devices can only be used via a USB-C adapter. In addition to NFC, the smartphone also contains Bluetooth 5.1 and thus a somewhat more up-to-date version of the wireless communication standard (Galaxy A32 5G: Bluetooth 5.0). The OTG-enabled USB-C port works at USB 2.0 speed.

The Galaxy A33 5G supports DRM Widevine L1, but the Camera2 API only comes with the support level "Limited". Third-party camera apps that are installed therefore have limited access to the camera features.

Software: Five years of updates guaranteed

Samsung equips the Galaxy A33 5G with Android 12 and its in-house One UI 4.1 user interface. At the time of review (end of June), the Android security patches were still from April 1 and thus not quite up to date.

Aside from the obligatory Google apps and a collection of proprietary apps, only a handful of third-party apps such as Facebook, TikTok and Spotify are preinstalled. Excluding Microsoft OneDrive, all of these can be uninstalled.

Samsung is focusing on longevity for its current smartphone and tablet generation, promising up to four generations of Android OS upgrades as well as five years of security updates. No other manufacturer in the Android field currently offers more.

Communication & GNSS: Galaxy A33 5G with good localization

With seventeen 4G bands and twelve 5G bands, Samsung's Galaxy A33 5G offers good mobile coverage, so reception problems should hardly ever occur.

The smartphone communicates via WiFi 5 in local networks, but does not make use of MIMO antenna technology to speed up data transfers. The WLAN transfer rates determined with our Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router are therefore not exactly inspiring. However, they fall well within the range of what can be expected from WiFi 5 and are very stable in both the send and receive directions.

Localization of the Galaxy A33 5G takes place via GPS (L1), Galileo (E1), Glonass (L1), Beidou (B1) and QZSS with an accuracy of up to 4 meters indoors and up to 3 meters outdoors.

The Galaxy A33 5G also provides rather accurate positioning data in everyday use. Compared with the Garmin Venu 2, it recorded our approximately 10-kilometer bike ride almost just as precisely.

Telephony & Voice Quality: Hybrid dual SIM

The Galaxy A33 5G delivers solid voice quality and can suppress loud ambient noise quite efficiently. Communication via the speaker also works quite well. However, voices become a bit muffled when we move further away from the microphone. The same happens when we speak quietly.

Either two nano-SIM cards or one nano-SIM card and one microSD card fit into the smartphone's hybrid slot. VoLTE and WLAN calling are supported.

Cameras: 48 MP quad camera with OIS

Photo with the main camera
Photo with the main camera

In terms of official specs, the Samsung Galaxy A33 5G has almost the same camera equipment as the Galaxy A32 5G, but the 48 MP main camera now has an optical image stabilizer that makes taking pictures easier. The remaining lenses on the back cover are occupied by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera (F2.2), a 5 MP macro camera (F2.4) and a 2 MP depth camera (F.2.4).

The main camera (F1.8, AF, OIS) takes 12 MP photos in standard mode via pixel binning. In daylight, photos are good and detailed, but lose some sharpness at the edges and are distorted by image artifacts when zooming. The activation of night mode can provide for decent pictures in low-light conditions, but dark areas could use more lighting. Overall, the image quality is absolutely fine for mid-range conditions as long as you are content with the strong colors that are typical of Samsung's smartphones.

The rest of the camera setup lags somewhat behind the main camera. Images with the ultra-wide-angle camera are clearly distorted towards the edges and quickly become pixelated when zooming in. The 2 MP macro camera, which works with a focus range of 3 to 5 centimeters, can take interesting pictures, but they are not so detailed due to the low resolution.

The selfie camera has a resolution of 13 MP, delivers a solid image quality and produces decent blur effects in portrait mode. Like the main camera, it can record videos in 4K UHD at 30 FPS. However, video stabilization only works up to a maximum of 1080p at 30 FPS in both cases, just like switching between the main camera and the ultra-wide-angle camera during recording.

Apart from a deviation in the green tones, the Galaxy A33 5G manages a fairly accurate color reproduction under laboratory conditions, but can only sharply reproduce the test chart in the center of the image. On the other hand, this can still be recognized in residual light of 1 lux, even if only in outlines.

Accessories & Warranty: No power supply included

As indicated by the slim packaging of the Samsung Galaxy A33 5G, a power adapter is not included in the scope of delivery. Buyers receive a USB cable (type A to C), a SIM tool, a quick start guide and a warranty information leaflet. Further accessories such as a 25-watt power adapter can be purchased in the Samsung shop.

The Galaxy A33 5G comes with a 24-month warranty in Germany. This may vary in other countries and other regions, so be sure to check with your supplier before buying. Unlike the Galaxy A53 5G, Samsung Care+ insurance is not available for the smartphone.

Input Devices & Operation - Optical fingerprint sensor

Thanks to the precise touchscreen with its 90 Hz refresh rate, the Samsung Galaxy A33 5G is comfortable and smooth to use. However, delays or small stutters can occur upon booting and when many apps are open at the same time, despite 6 GB of RAM. All in all, this is not so annoying, but it clearly shows that the smartphone does not have the fastest SoC.

The Galaxy A33 5G can be unlocked quickly and reliably via the optical fingerprint sensor integrated into the display. The second biometric authentication method is the 2D face scan, which performs well with a high recognition rate even in low ambient light, but is not quite as secure as the fingerprint method.

Display: Bright AMOLED screen

Subpixel grid

In terms of display, the Galaxy A33 5G makes a big leap forward compared to its predecessor. While the Galaxy A32 5G had to make do with a low-resolution TFT-LCD screen and a framerate of 60 Hz, Samsung has flipped things around with the successor.

The Galaxy A33 5G offers a bright 90 Hz AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2400 x 1080, the same as its 6.5-inch Galaxy A sister model, the Galaxy A53 5G. This also provides our 6.4-inch review sample with a high pixel density of 441 PPI, which makes displayed content nice and sharp.

On average, the AMOLED panel achieves a luminance of around 695 cd/m², which is practically as bright as the screen of the Galaxy A53 5G. We even get up to 1092 cd/m² from the screen in evenly distributed bright and dark areas (APL18 measurement). Without the brightness sensor, the luminance drops to a maximum of 387 cd/m². At the lowest brightness setting, the screen still shines with 2.2 cd/m², or 1.82 cd/m² when you activate the extra dimming in the Android settings under "Input Help".

The AMOLED screen flickers in a range of 178.1 to 366.2 Hz, which should not bother most users. A DC dimming mode that counteracts the PWM flickering is not available in the Android settings.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 366.2 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 366.2 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 366.2 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19928 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

In the preset picture mode "Vivid", the Galaxy A33 5G gives off a bright representation of colors in the foreground, where color precision only plays a subordinate role. However, whether the colors are precise or not can harly been seen with the naked eye. If you switch to the second picture mode "Natural", the measurement values given by CalMAN are also good: The color accuracy with a maximum Delta-E of 1.3 falls into the ideal range, as well as the RGB balance and the color temperature.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1.25 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.623 ms rise
↘ 0.627 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.5 ms).

The Samsung Galaxy A33 5G can be used well outdoors. However, screen content is difficult to read in direct sunlight due to the strong reflection. In the shade, the display is flawless.

Content can be recognized well from all viewing angles. As is typical for AMOLED, there can be slight greenish or yellowish discolorations and/or a slight drop in brightness, but this does not decisively affect legibility.

Performance: Exynos 1280 instead of MediaTek Dimensity 720

While the Galaxy A32 5G is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 720, Samsung uses its own Exynos 1280 for the Galaxy A33 5G. This also uses 8 cores and runs a little faster, but does not have a clear edge over other mid-range SoCs. AImark's AI calculations do not favor the Exynos 1280 at all, as it falls behind most of its other competitors - even the MediaTek Dimensity 720 scores better here.

No records are broken with the UFS 2.2, as occasionally evidenced by the longer loading and waiting times in everyday use. Some of the comparison devices perform much better in terms of read/write performance.

Gaming: PUBG Mobile runs at 30 FPS

The 90 Hz screen of the Galaxy A33 5G only shines in graphically undemanding titles, and even this is not always guaranteed. Subway Surfers, for example, was limited to 30 FPS. Other games, such as Armajet, manage just over 80 FPS on average.

More graphically demanding games hardly exceed the 30 FPS mark due to a lack of computing power on part of the Exynos 1280. But they are by no means unplayable. On the contrary: PUBG Mobile runs at an almost constant 30 FPS on the Galaxy A33 5G in HD/high settings.

Frame rates are determined with our Gamebench test tool.

The Galaxy A33 5G is always comfortable to use during operation. Surface temperatures measured 30.2 °C in idle mode, while this rises to 36.1 °C under load. The smartphone does not become more than lukewarm.

There are no internal temperature problems either. As 3DMark's Wild Life stress tests and GFXBench's battery test show, the Galaxy A33 5G can fully utilize its performance at any time so long as ambient temperatures are within a normal range.

Speakers

The two speakers of Samsung's smartphone - one located next to the USB-C port, and the other below the display in the area of the selfie camera - produce good sound characterized by balanced mids and trebles. However, bass tones are hardly present.

Audio devices can be connected to the smartphone via a USB-C adapter or paired via Bluetooth 5.1. However, the Galaxy A33 5G is quite restrained in terms of Bluetooth audio codecs, as these are limited to AAC, aptX, LDAC and SBC.
