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 : 
Rear 
· (Ultra-Wide) 8 MP F2.2 
· (Main) 48 MP F1.8 OIS
· (Depth) 2 MP F2.4 
· (Macro) 5 MP F2.4 
 Front
· 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 :

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.
