Samsung Galaxy A72 4G works on Android 11, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in Samsung Galaxy A72 4G implemented support for working with two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

Good big 6.7-inch screen, made by technology Super AMOLED with screen refresh rate 90 Hz (see all smartphones with screens 90 Hz in the catalog) installed in the smartphone Samsung Galaxy A72 4G.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Samsung Galaxy A72 4G the thickness of the case is 8.4 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body. In addition, the screen area in relation to the body area affects the positive feeling of the phone in the hands. This model has a screen area of 80% to 90% of the body area (watch all smartphones with a screen from edge to edge). And one more thing, the screen area is increased thanks to the upper cutout above it, while the body area remains unchanged. Samsung Galaxy A72 4G received a cutout in the form of a small hole at the top of the screen for a selfie camera and multiple sensors. Check out detailed photos of this smartphone for a better understanding of how it looks in real life.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Samsung Galaxy A72 4G installed battery for 5 000 mAh, which is very, very good, this battery will last for a long time.

Of the features of the case and form factor, it is worth noting protection against ingress of water and dust inside the body. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality. And the most interesting thing is that the main camera on the back of the body has several lenses (smartphones with four cameras). That can do 2x zoom without losing quality. And with the help of at least two lenses, you can shoot portraits with the bokeh effect, this is when the background is blurred and the photo appears like depth. In this model, the selfie camera is on the front and you can see it. In 2019, smartphones were announced with a front camera, which is located inside the body and is not visible. When you need to take a photo, the front camera slides up from the body. You take your selfie, the photo is saved and then the camera goes down into the body. All smartphones with pop-up front camera from different producers at different prices are collected in the catalog. If you are interested in such models, we advise you to first watch video reviews about them, and then make a choice and buy.
