The Galaxy A73 5G is a smartphone with a slate-type factor form, which is 159.6 × 74.8 × 8.1 mm in size and weighs 189 grams. It has a 6,7 inch diagonal touchscreen, Super AMOLED+ Infinity-O, rounded corners and FHD+ resolution of 1080 × 2400 pixels. Support the cooling rate at 120 Hz. As a protection you use Gorilla Glass 5. The 5000 mAh lithium polymer battery is not removable from the user. Supports ultra-fast charging at 25 W.
The rear camera has a 108 MP main sensor with an f/1 opening. The D-SLR-Focus is equipped with a PDAF, OIS, HDR mode and a flash LED mode, capable of recording up to 4K to 30 photograms per second, while the front camera is a single 32MP camera. The chipset is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G with an octagonal CPU (4 cores at 2.4 GHz + 4 cores at 1.8 GHz). UFS type 2 internal memory. 1 is 128/256 GB expandable with microSD up to 1 TB, while the RAM is 6 or 8 GB (depending on the version chosen).
When compared to their flagship counterparts, mid-segment phones have lower camera performance and quality. Samsung turned this concept on its head with the A72 last year, and it’s done it again with the A73. The phone has a great back camera and an even better front camera. Leaving away the gimmick of pixels, the visual quality is also better than the FE models. The volume and power button are on the right-hand side, but the placement is a bit odd. Given the size of the screen, the buttons should have been a bit lower, so that you don’t have to slide the phone for one-handed operation. The camera bump at the back is less pronounced, so it doesn’t allow much rocking when kept on a flat surface. Sadly, the headphone jack has gone missing.
Samsung’s smoothing is less noticeable, and the image is clearer. The colors are more true to life. The performance in low light was just as terrible as previously. Optical Image Stabilization did not operate flawlessly either. However, it is one of the greatest camera sets in this price range. The issue is with the program. Many features seen in the upper end category, such as portrait video, were absent from A73’s offering.

Samsung promised that the phone would last two days with its 5000 mAh battery. It can achieve that goal with light use, but medium use would last a day and a half. Expect a quarter of your battery life to vanish if you use GPS for two hours. In that situation, the phone only lasted about a day. This is where Samsung’s phone falls short of expectations. The Snapdragon 778G is a fine CPU, but at that price, one would expect something from the 8 series. Aside from that, the processor is excellent for everyday chores and light gaming. Asphalt ran easily on the phone, but Fortnite was a different story. Although there was little heat, the overall experience suffered. However, battery life was not an issue.
