Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A72 5G

Samsung Galaxy A72 hands-on preview
Source: Phone Arena English
Last year, the midrange Galaxy A71 was a success and became quite popular. Now, its successor is here, bringing, at least at first look, significant improvements in the display with a 90Hz high refresh rate, a bigger 5,000mAh battery, and a versatile camera system. All of these cool features are packed under a gorgeous new look both the A72 and the A52 sport, with fresh and youthful colors. Here’s our hands-on experience with the new midranger. We noticed a smaller improvement in the processor and its performance is not a giant step forward from the Galaxy A71, but despite that, the A72 is a good investment for anyone wanting a smooth Samsung phone for an affordable price.

Last year, the budget-friendly Galaxy A71 was a success and became quite popular. We are now expecting its successor, the Galaxy A72, to soon hit the market scene, offering, just like its predecessor, a good balance between quality and price. The phone is expected to come in two variants, connectivity-wise: a 5G version and an LTE-only version. Here, we will focus on the 5G variant of the phone.

Qualcomm Adreno 619: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 750G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance is a lot better than the old Adreno 612.
