Samsung Galaxy A72 Specifications, Price, and Release Date

Samsung Galaxy A72 Summary

Similar to the Galaxy A52, the Samsung Galaxy A72 boasts a completely new look. The 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display has a full-HD+ resolution, a refresh rate of 90Hz, and supports HDR playback. The in-display fingerprint sensor on the Samsung Galaxy A72 is a nice feature, but I found it to be inconsistent and sluggish when it came to authentication. Despite being incredibly underpowered in comparison to the competition at this pricing, the Snapdragon 720G SoC can nonetheless run Android 11. Games did quite well, with titles like Genshin Impact having extremely playable framerates and just occasional minor stuttering.

The Samsung Galaxy A72 sports a camera arrangement identical to the Galaxy A52, however, the depth camera has been replaced with a more functional 8-megapixel telephoto camera. Under favorable lighting, the primary camera took photos that were typically above average. The telephoto lens produced just acceptable images. If the Samsung name and features like the twin speakers and IP certification drew you to the Galaxy A72, I'd suggest switching to the Galaxy A52 and saving some cash.
