Key Features of the Galaxy A33 5G
Comparatively speaking, the Galaxy A33 5G is a great value, especially when compared to Samsung's lower-end A-series phones. For the first time, this year's model is only available in a single 5G variant, rather than the usual dual-band 4G and 5G models. The camera bump that curls into the plastic back panel distinguishes this year's model from last year's. The matte finish goes all the way around the slightly curved plastic frame, which makes it easy to hold. The A33 5G is a moderately sized device that feels good in the hand.
Ingress protection is one of the most noticeable changes in this version's design. Previously, only the most expensive models could boast water and dust resistance of the IP67 variety. The audio is another big departure from last year. You'll have to go without a headphone jack, but at least you'll have dual speakers. In this case, the earpiece doubles as the second speaker, making it a hybrid. There is no dedicated micro-SD slot in this device, so you'll have to choose between a memory card and a second SIM while using the Galaxy A33 5G, which has an internal storage of 128GB and can be expanded.
Last year, you had to choose between the slower 4G model with a great AMOLED screen and the speedier 5G model with a degraded display. This year (2022), you may have it all without any of the drawbacks. Samsung's Exynos 1280 chipset, first seen on the Galaxy A535g earlier this year, powers the Galaxy A33 5G. As far as class performance goes, this is a huge step forward over both the Helio G80 in the Galaxy A32 and the MediaTek Dimensity 720 in the Galaxy A32 5G.
The A33 5G should serve you well with its two refresh rate options and improved GPU performance. Its thermals are also great. Swiping and scrolling on the screen are smoothed out at 60hz and 90hz, respectively. The A33 5G contains an ambient light sensor that helps regulate the brightness of the screen. The screen's brightness may rise from 400 nits to 730 nits with the adaptive brightness option. An optical fingerprint scanner is located beneath the display for your biometrics. The sensor is sufficiently sized to be both quick and reliable.
The Galaxy A33 5G has a big 5000mAh battery that keeps it running. Due to environmental concerns, Samsung does not supply a charging adaptor with their smartphones, even though they can take 25-watt chargers. With the 25-watt adapter, the phone could be charged from 0% to 50% in 30 minutes.
A new version of Samsung's UI 4.1 runs on top of Android 12 to provide the UI on the A33 5G. It has all of the fundamentals, although it omits a few features compared to flagship models. Some examples are Smart Widgets and Samsung Decks, and the photo editor's more extensive object erasing capabilities. With the A33 5G, Samsung promises four OS upgrades and five years of security fixes, which is a big selling point for their mid-range smartphones.
Now on to the cameras. An optically stabilized 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, a 5-megapixel macro camera, and a depth sensor are all included in the A33 5G's camera system. The images taken by the main camera, which has a resolution of 12 megapixels, are great for what they are. They are clear and show more than enough resolution information. They also have strong contrast, little noise, and a good dynamic range.
The primary complaint is that you get the standard Samsung rendering, and the bright colours aren't for everyone. The depth sensor is used to take portraits, and they're excellent. The separation is acceptable for the price range, and the subjects are well-exposed and well-defined. Selfie quality is good, with enough resolution, good contrast, and a good dynamic range. The upgraded chipset in the A33 5G selfie camera lets it record 4K video as well.
The camera on the back is also capable of shooting in 4K, and the results are stunning. The colours are vibrant, and the dynamic range is noticeable. This camera doesn't have electronic stabilization unless you turn it down to 1080p. The video quality is far better than expected, with fine resolution detail, little noise, and a wide dynamic range throughout the frame.
