Samsung Galaxy A33 5G Unboxing

[Tech & Gadgets]

Samsung Electronics recently launched the new 5G enabled Galaxy A73 5G, Galaxy A53 5G and Galaxy A33 5G in Malaysia. The new mid-range smartphones are aimed at offering a holistic mobile experience at a great value. I recently got my hands on the Galaxy A33 5G and will be putting it to the test over the next few weeks to see how it performs.

In a nutshell, the Galaxy A33 5G is powered by a brand-new processor, has an expansive and smooth display, 5,000mAh battery, 5G connectivity, defense-grade security, and an eco-conscious, stylish and slim design. The phone supports four generations of One UI and Android OS upgrades and up to five years of security updates.

The Galaxy A33 5G features a quad-camera system with a 48.0 MP + 8.0 MP + 5.0 MP + 2.0 MP setup on the rear and a 13MP shooter on the front. The Galaxy A33 5G’s AI-powered camera is powered by a brand new 5nm processor. The improved Night mode automatically synthesizes up to 12 images at once, so night photos look bright, with less noise. And when shooting video in low-light environments, the camera’s framerate is automatically adjusted to create bright, clear videos. There’s a Fun mode that comes with playful filters and effects that now work with the Ultra-wide lens. The Photo Remaster (supposedly) enhances old and low-quality photos, while the Object eraser removes pesky photo bombers in the background (Ed – this should be quite useful!).

I was rather amazed by how thin the box
In the box is the phone, a USB type C cable and the SIM card slot opener. Kindly note that there is NO ASING AND NO CHARGER included meaning that you’ll need to purchase it separately or use your existing Samsung charger, assuming that it can provide a 25W charge

The Galaxy A33 5G features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The battery is surprisingly large at 5,000mAh and comes with 25W Super Fast Charging.

The Galaxy A33 5G has a slim bezel while the Ambient Edge design seamlessly blends the camera with the body of the phone. The screen is made with the tough Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5, and the phone is also IP67 water (underwater photos!) and dust resistance.

Being a conservationist, I’m glad to hear that Samsung is committed to delivering tangible environmental actions with their Galaxy for the Planet initiative to help make the planet healthier by 2025. Building on Samsung’s sustainability efforts, the Galaxy A series removes the charger plug and reduces the size of the packaging. Packaging also uses sustainably sourced paper, while the device itself uses recycled post-consumer materials (PCM) for the side buttons and SIM card trays.

What struck us immediately was the matte texture of the back of the phone which was nice to hole. However, I always ALWAYS use my phones in a case to protect them from drops and scratches (and as such I placed an order for a casing on a shopping app the following day). We both also liked the unisex pastel colour. Good to see Samsung making a departure from the usual black/ white colours and venturing into younger and more youthful colours!
It was fast to startup and setup. The phone feels pretty solid in the hand! Not the plasticky type of phones which I really dislike.

The new Galaxy A series ensures data and information stay protected, secured by the defense-grade Samsung Knox. When storing private photos, notes and apps, Secure Folder offers users an encrypted, digital safe, so only they can access its contents. Using Private Share, users can control exactly who has access to files and for how long. The Galaxy A33 5G also includes the new Samsung Wallet, a convenient and protected place to safely store everything from boarding passes to credit cards.

The Galaxy A33 5G works seamlessly with other Galaxy devices for the full, connected Galaxy ecosystem experience. Audio options are expanded by connecting the Galaxy Buds series to the phone.

Elizabeth trying out the camera’s selfie mode. Samsung’s selfie shots tend to be very natural but if you like to edit your apps you can download and use your favourite beauty app
I will be bringing the A33 5G around with me so stay tuned for my user review
