Samsung Galaxy A72 Test Trial: A marathon runner who doesn't really know where to go

Samsung Galaxy A72 Test Trial: A marathon runner who doesn’t really know where to go

If you’ve read our Galaxy A52 5G review, this new model will not protect you. In fact, the A72 strongly resembles its smaller brother. In fact, the only difference comes from the size of the panel, which previously went from 6.5 inches to 6.7 inches. This is a particularly well-finished smartphone.

Weight naturally ranges from 189 grams to 203 grams. Its contrasting push dimensions (165 x 77.4 x 8.4 mm) are not suitable for small hands. If this is your thing, the power and volume control buttons may seem high. In short, it is a smartphone that can be used mainly with both hands. The fingerprint sensor placed under the screen is particularly responsive.

The Galaxy A72 is larger than the A52.

Always inspired by high-end models, it has a solid colored plastic shell. The photo is more transparently integrated than the island Galaxy S21, But it does not harm the design, on the contrary. We appreciate its IP67 certification, which allows it to be submerged for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 m. So it may slip carelessly into your bathtub without much damage. This terminal benefits from a good repair score of 8.2 / 10.

In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy A72 can host two Nano SIMs or expand the microSD card up to an additional 256GB of storage. On the right side of the USB-C port, we see that the micro jack port is still on the bottom edge.

The Galaxy A72 features a 3.5mm mini-jack.

The Galaxy A72 has a good idea to offer us a micro-jack port, which is unfortunately increasingly rare. The final copy is very good. If stereo reproduction is not abnormal (-50.7 dB), the dynamic range is commendable (-111.5 dB) and the deviation is particularly controlled (0.0011%). The output power reaches 107 MVRMS, which should be sufficient for normal headphones, this type of smartphone is not for Audiophil headphones anyway.

The stereo speakers are not particularly bright, and the sound is a bit confusing. Placing the hands in landscape mode also prevents their exit. As you can see, the A72 is completely unsuitable for those who want to listen to their music in general. This is much less annoying for video or streaming.

Values Average
Release status 107 M.V.R.M. 116.3 MVRM
Dissociation + noise 0.0011% 0.081%
Dynamic range 111.5 dB. 91 dB.
Crossstock -50,7 dB. -54.7 dB.

How Samsung demonstrates knowledge when it comes to the screens of its smartphones. Thanks to the 6.7-inch Super AMOLED panel with a 20: 9 aspect ratio, it displays at 1080 x 2400 px (394 dpi). Unlike the A52 5G version, the update rate is a maximum of 90Hz. Non-adaptive, it can also be set to 60 Hz. We use a beautiful brightness with a maximum brightness of 869 cd / m and a moderate reflection of 49.3%. Old duties, variation is infinite. Therefore, we are better than the LCD panel M 10 d, For example.

By default with 7093 K, the colorization of the box is not optimal. This goes for Delta E 4.9. Therefore, we strongly advise you to choose the landscape profile in the visual settings to enjoy it to the fullest overall. Thus we fall to 6739 K and a delta E of 1.9, which is very close to the video standards in the West. Once done, the user benefits from a bright and liquid screen, even if the green shades are subject to some color slips (see color chart). The tactile delay (87 ms) is not felt. In short, good stuff.

The chip of this Galaxy A72 has not been shipped A52 5G, But of the A52. Equipped with Snapdragon 720G SoC and 6 to 8GB RAM, this should not be a shame. The latter provides very decent performance in many tasks and allows you to maintain beautiful fluid even when multiple tabs are open. Our test protocol thus gives an overall score of 87.

The situation at risk is similar. With an average of 48 fps, it works better than that Pixel 4A5G (40 fps), worse than M 10 d, But as well A52 4G ! In practice, you should have no problem running greedy applications in good condition. This is not a smartphone Gamers Definitely speaking, but it has the right things to provide a comfortable experience.

Our performance tests are carried out with Visor, an application developed by SmartViser.

We’ll take it and start again! Almost almost. The Galaxy A72 actually has the same wide-angle (64 megapixels, f / 1.8) and ultra-wide-angle (12 MPX, f / 2.2) as the A52 and A52 5G. In this aspect, two smartphones disappointed us, especially the one-pixel 4A5G front, which was even stronger in training.

The Galaxy A72 is in addition to a telephoto lens.

It benefits from the same good front-facing photo sensor (32MPX, f / 2.2) and can shoot at 4K at 30phps. Also, for the testing of the Galaxy A52 5G we recommend you to enjoy more details about its core module, its extreme width angle and its front module.

The Galaxy A72, however, stands out from its peers with an 8MP telephoto lens (f / 2.4). In most cases, this type of block has difficulty in convincing. This model does not come as any surprise.

Telephoto module: 8MPX, f / 2.4, zoom x3

Galaxy A72 (eg 24mm, f / 1,8, ISO 2000, 1/20V)
Galaxy A72 (76mm, f / 2,4, ISO 50, 1/50V)

Day by day, the x3 optical zoom delivers a very smooth but readable image. It has no details yet, but is usable. At night, the situation is very difficult. We can certainly distinguish shapes, but the details disappear and lead to a beautiful mash of pixels when we are too close.

This volume should distinguish the A72 from the rest of the range, so it is not enough to improve the general rating on the photos.

If there’s one (important) feature that the Galaxy A72 can’t pick up from behind, it’s autonomy. Our protocol took 24 hours to type it, which is an excellent score. In fact, this smartphone can last even two or three days if your usage is not very serious. Only Xiaomi Mi10d Manages to do better. So he is a real marathon runner.

Supplied with a high speed 25 W charger, it takes 1 hour 25 minutes to recharge its battery to 100%. So this is not the fastest thing in the gym, but you should have time to watch it come. The Samsung A72 unfortunately does not support wireless charging.

Our battery tests are automated by Visor, an application developed by Smartwizer.

The results obtained with the visor come from measurements taken under actual usage conditions (calls, SMS, videos, launching applications, web browsing, etc.).
