An update : Samsung Galaxy A34 5G

Leave a Comment
It has been a week+ since I started testing the new Samsung Galaxy A34 5G phone. I had the Samsung Galaxy A32 & Samsung Galaxy A33 before and you may search for them in this blog. The new A34 is an improved version of both models with better things to offer anyone looking for an excellent affordable budget phone.

1. Video Quality
The Samsung A34 Galaxy 5G supports 5G connectivity, which can offer faster data speeds and smoother video streaming. Most of us will use our phones to watch videos in our leisure time. So the video plays a big role in my opinion. Featuring a 6.6-inch 120Hz AMOLED display, the video looks crisp and fine. It supports the highest quality of video for a great watching experience.

2. Camera Functions & Quality
The camera is pretty decent, but not the best quality. I notice a fine soft filter during video recording. The camera for photo taking is pretty sharp too but not the best for micro picture taking or low light situations.
The camera features below MP :
Main: 48MP, f/1.8 OIS
Ultrawide: 8MP, f/2.2
Macro: 5MP, f/2.4
Front: 13MP, f/2.2

You can watch a video I made here testing the camera :

3. Battery Life & Usage
The Samsung Galaxy A34 has a capacity of 5,000mAh battery with 25W charging. It took about 2 hours +/- for it to fully charge from below 10% to 100%. With light usage of calls, video watching and picture taking the battery lasted about 1-2 days.

4. Overall Usage & Feel
It said that the Galaxy A34 5G has a similar design style as the flagship S23 range. It has a solid firm grip size and it may look heavy but actually, it has a pretty nice weight to it. With a dimension of 161.3 x 78.1 x 8.2mm and a weight of about 199g. 
With four colors to choose from graphite (mine), silver, lime, and violet. Also kudos for having a C-Type charger hole! It is a paint o keep still using the lightning cable until now for some other phones. This is a great budget beginner-friendly phone for anyone out there!

Assalamualaikum everyone! Samsung is back here again with the A series and this year the new Samsung Galaxy A34 5G launched since the last A33 phone was introduced around a year ago. It is one of the best mid range phones out there for people who want something simple for day to day basis use. Now let me go through my 1st impression upon receiving this phone in hand and will compare it a bit with the previous experience I had with A32 & A33.
There is a protective seal on the box to know if the phone is new or was opened. The box is similar to the previous A33 where since that, no adapters were included but just comes with the cable. The battery storage is a standard Samsung phone capacity 5000mAh with 25W charging. 
Upon 1st hand holding the phone, I could say it getting lighter than the previous one, which I find much more pleasant to hold. The one I got is in Awesome Graphite (Black) color. It has a Plastic rear and frame but does not look cheap or easily broken. It has a measuring of 161.3 x 78.1 x 8.2mm and weighs about 150g. The screen is measured at 6.6-inch AMOLED display and refresh rates of up to 120Hz for your usage & fingerprint sensor built into the screen.
What you get in the full box are the phone, a warranty card, a USB-C to USB-C cable and a tool to remove the SIM tray. The Galaxy A34 runs Android 13 with Samsung’s One UI 5.
The Galaxy A34 also has stereo speakers that are located at the top of the phone with spec of MediaTek Dimensity 1080, 6/8GB RAM. For the camera wise, I will cover it in my 2 weeks verdict of using the phone, as for the features that you will be expecting are :
48Mp main with OIS
8Mp ultra-wide
5Mp macro
13Mp selfie

Storage option: 256G only

This phone is priced at RM1,599.00

Recently, Fanbo, a brand from Indonesia, launched a range that will help you with these problems. The Acne Solution Skincare Line! And guess what, for all 4 items (from Step 1 - 4) they are only below RM50.00!
Step 1 -  Fanbo Acne Solution Facial Foam, effectively cleanses oily and acne-prone skin. Usually, products with tea tree oil ingredients have a very strong tea tree oil scent to them. If you don't like the scent, but wanted to try a tea tree skincare range, this is for you. This cleanser helps your skin feel much cleaner and fresh. It really removes all the dirt and oil from your face. It lathers pretty well and does not feel too dry after washing.

Step 3 - Fanbo Acne Solution Moisturizer Gel, controls oil secretion & soothes skin. If you have oily skin, choose a gel texture moisturizer. This kind of moisturizer feels much lighter for oily skin types of people. A gel texture moisturizer also helps soothes the skin and does not leave a heavy sticky feeling on the skin. This moisturizer is perfect. Even though I have dry skin, this feels very hydrating on the skin. Love the squeeze tube too! So convenient.

Apply this acne spot treatment to any new acne on your face. It helps to reduce the redness and swelling of the acne, so it will heal better and prevent it from becoming a dark spot or scar.

The increased awareness of how air purifiers are a must in every home is a positive awareness in the community. It can make a huge difference to your life quality don't you agree. 

Some of the reasons or signs you need an air purifier at home :

1. Dust Problem - I struggle with dust issues for my whole life. It NEVER ENDS! Especially we use baby powder a lot in our daily routine. Dust usually is more in high humidity areas such as us, Malaysia! Dust can trigger allergies such as runny nose, constant sneezing (my son struggles with this), and watery eyes. 

2. Having Babies/Children around - Small children are very sensitive to their surroundings. They are born with ailments like allergies & asthma. An air purifier can prevent and reduce the risk of these symptoms and causes to get sick often.

3. Someone is smoking in the house - Smokes from cigarettes can pollute the air around your home with hundreds of harmful gasses and particles and an air purifier can help to reduce the risk of what smoke from cigarettes can give you.

An update with the Samsung Galaxy A33

1 comment
2 weeks had gone by and here is my thought on the new Samsung Galaxy A33. I had the A32 before and you can also read it here. I also did an unboxing first impression post that you can read here. Moving on, the new Samsung Galaxy A33 is somewhat a better version than the previous one. I can tell that one of the additional features is the water & dust resistance feature. The water resistance feature are only for 1 meter of freshwater for up to 30 minutes & safe against low water pressure only. Apart from that, the others are as below.

1. Video Quality

Featuring a FHD+ sAMOLED 90Hz display, with a screen size is 6.4" in the full rectangle and 6.2" with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The video quality is for me great. Nothing to complain about, the playback is seamless, color vibrancy is also great. Also, it automatically changes the lighting pretty fast. So watching videos in the darkroom can be easy. The sound quality is also great and serves no problem.

2. Camera Functions & Quality

The camera features are : 
· (Ultra-Wide) 8 MP F2.2 
· (Main) 48 MP F1.8 OIS
· (Depth) 2 MP F2.4 
· (Macro) 5 MP F2.4 
· 13 MP F2.2 

It has a great feature of photoshopping mode you can choose. Here are some images took from the Samsung A33 without any editing :

Day time vs Night Time

Zoom in & vibrancy check

Overall, it is a great camera during the day and just okay during low-light surroundings. There are other cameras features too such as filters and more. Its an acceptable quality for the price.

3. Battery Life & Usage

It claims that the battery can stay up to 2 days and I tested that and I would say it does but with casual usage of the phone. The storage battery is standard 5000mph like most phones. Charging it is really fast, which I am very impressed with. It took me just about 30mins for the full battery to filled up.

4. Overall Usage & Feel

The size of the phone is 159.7 x 74 x 8.1 mm with an average weight of 186g with Gorilla Glass 5, plus a dual Sim with Nano Sim slot. The material of the phone looks like plastic and the matte catches fingerprints quite easily. So recommend having a case for this.

Overall I think it's a great casual phone for anyone who wants a phone for basic wear such as calls, messaging, video watching, and casual gaming. The camera is just okay, great during bring light surroundings.

The Samsung Galaxy A33 is using Android 12, One UI 4.1 with Chipset Exynos 1280 & Octa-core (2×2.4 GHz Cortex-A78 & 6×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55) processor.
