The Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 duo have been in the market for a few months. We've already tested the Galaxy A52, and it's now the turn of the Galaxy A72. It's priced roughly Rs. 7,000 higher than the Galaxy A52, and for that extra money you get a slightly larger display, larger battery, and a telephoto camera.

Samsung Galaxy A72 Summary

The Samsung Galaxy A72 features a fresh new design, similar to what we saw with the Galaxy A52. The 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display has a full-HD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate, and supports HDR playback. The Samsung Galaxy A72 has an in-display fingerprint sensor, but I found it to be very inconsistent with authentication and a bit sluggish too.

The Snapdragon 720G SoC is quite underpowered compared to the competition at this price, but it's still powerful enough to handle Android 11. Games ran really well too and titles such as Genshin Impact had very playable framerates, with just some mild stutter intermittently. The Samsung Galaxy A72 has a similar camera setup as the Galaxy A52, except that the depth camera has been swapped for a more useful 8-megapixel telephoto camera. Photos captured by the main camera were generally above average under good light. The telephoto camera captured strictly average photos.

If the Samsung name and features such as the IP rating and stereo speakers are what drew you towards the Galaxy A72, I'd suggest buying the Galaxy A52 instead and saving some money.

  • Excellent phone, awesome camera quality
    Sayantan Sengupta (Apr 2, 2021) on Amazon
    It's an excellent phone, please go ahead and buy without any hesitation. I am not sure how such a newly launched phone has got so many negative reviews, but I am having a gala time, thanks to Samsung.PROSCamera quality: Samsung has done an incredible job this time, particularly with the cameras. While the phone is good in almost every aspect, I am really impressed by the quality of rear cameras. The selfie camera is also equally competent here. Images are way better than any other phone at this price point (I think it might even compete with high-end phones too in terms of camera quality, particularly those Chinese ones that claim to have more than 100 megapixels but fail to perform accordingly).Display and Overall Performance: Samsung phones are known for their excellent super-amoled displays and this phone is no exception. I also didn't find any lag during day-to-day usage and even while playing graphic intensive games. Sound quality is superb, UI is smooth and battery quality is also decent (lasts for more than a day). In-display fingerprint is fast and accurate (much better than previous Samsung phones), same is the face unlock.Software updates: Samsung has promised upto 3 years of android updates and 4 years of security updates on this phone!!!CONSWhile it's hard to mention cons for this phone, I think the telephoto lens could have been a little bit better. However, can't complain much at this price point (after all it's a phone, not a DSLR). There are few complaints regarding the phone lacking latest Snapdragon processor, but trust me you won't notice any lag. Yes,Samsung could have added 5G to this phone, but again, its not a major issue for me.
