Two Galaxy A72 phones in Awesome Violet, fanned out. One is seen from the rear to show the rear camera. One is seen from the front and onscreen is a collage of a woman's head, someone dabbing in a yellow coat and another person jumping, with the word Awesome. Water is splashing on the phones.

**Colour availability may vary depending on country or carrier.
***Galaxy A72 is rated as IP67. IP67 certified water resistance for up to 30 minutes in up to 1m of fresh water. Rinse thoroughly in fresh water after salt or chlorinated water exposure, or exposure to liquids containing sugar. Not advised for beach or pool use or for use with soapy water. Not for use in environments with high water pressure, including running tap water or showers.

 

Awesome screen, real smooth scrolling

Supersize your view with the immersive 6.7-inch Infinity-O Display. An FHD+ Super AMOLED display, it hits 800 nits*1 for clarity even in bright daylight. Plus, Eye Comfort Shield*2 lowers blue light, and Real Smooth keeps the view smooth, whether you're gaming or scrolling.

**Measured diagonally, the screen size is 6.7" in the full rectangle and 6.6" accounting for the rounded corners. Actual viewable area is less due to the rounded corners and the camera hole.
1. In case the adaptive brightness is set 'On' in the setting. When the display is exposed to over 20,000 lux as recognized by the brightness sensor of the phone, such as under environments with lots of ambient light or direct sunlight, it may increase up to 800nits brightness. The brightness values measured by the sensor may differ depending on the angle of light.
2. Galaxy A72 (SM-A725)'s display received Eye Care Certification by SGS based on its ability to reduce the harmful effects of blue light. This certification can be found on https://www.sgs.com.

 

Setting a new standard for stunning design

Behold the comfortable, sleek curves on Galaxy A72's seamless design. The minimal camera housing blends in with the matte finish on the rear for an iconic, almost unibody look. Express your style with four trendsetting colours: Awesome Violet, Awesome Black, Awesome White and Awesome Blue.

Awesome camera, always sharp and steady

Go ultra high-res on the 64MP Main Camera with OIS for crisp, clear photos throughout the day. Expand the viewing angle with Ultra Wide Camera. And zoom to new distances with 3x optical zoom and 30X Space Zoom on the Telephoto Camera with OIS.

*OIS : Optical Image Stabilisation
**30X Space Zoom includes digital zoom, which may cause some image deterioration.

 

Capture details even in low light with OIS

Say bye to blurry photos and videos. OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) helps stabilise your shots to keep motion smooth and stills crisp - even when it's low light. The camera pulls in more light to brighten up your low light shots.

Pro-quality photos from three perspectives

Start with the 12MP Ultra Wide Camera and expand your field of vision to an eye-like 123° for shots that truly capture it all. Crop down with the 64MP Wide Angle Camera, or zoom in for beautifully steady close-ups on its 3x optical zoom 8MP Telephoto Camera.

**Ultra wide experience (photo/video) is supported for rear camera only.

 

Macro Camera pays attention to the tiny details

Get in close with the 5MP Macro Camera and bring out the ultra-fine details in your picture. It applies natural bokeh effect to your pictures, allowing your subject to stand out from the background.

High-resolution Front Camera, superstar selfies

Great for a few months

After maybe 5 months of use the touch screen died, my mother who also has one is having a similar issue of the touch screen giving out. Its unacceptable for a 700 hundred dollar phone to just give up after less than half a year.

Great Mid range phone.

Colour: Black | Storage Size: 256GB

Upgraded from a water damaged A70 to this A72 - Great unit.
This adds a bit more size and weight to the previous version which just makes it feel solid.
Phone is also water proof which the A70 wasn't. Cameras work fine (all three of them!) although I not a heavy user as I have proper camera gear.
Battery life is excellent - easy two days of casual use.
Dual sim or sim and microsd - but with 256Gb on storage the microusb wasn't needed for my usage.

A great phone for a cheap price

Colour: Black | Storage Size: 256GB

Love this new phone! I love the size, the camera, the ease of which I did the switch from my current phone and the features. Almost can't believe that this phone is as cheap as it is because I honestly can't see any diminished features from the more expensive Samsung options. :)

A fantastic bargain

To say that I'm impressed with this ph is an understatement. It is literally the best you can get for the amount of money it costs, a fantastic and bright display, very powerful, and the battery life is ridiculously long, I can easily go a day and a half without charging. It also records video in 4K!!
I am very happy with my purchase from PBTECH and encourage others to get this ph while it's still available. I've had the ph now for over a month and I'm so glad I brought it

Turned me into a Samsung Fan

Colour: Black | Storage Size: 256GB

I was an iphone and apple patriot until I bought this phone. I honestly love this phone far better. It's display is sleek, it runs beautifully, but the best part is the Battery power. I can watch youtube for 4 hours straight and this device will go down by 10% where normal apple products would have half its battery drained.

Bonus Point: Has a headphone jack.

On Speaker phone other person can't hear you

Colour: Black | Storage Size: 256GB

A72 purchased during black Friday. It's good phone except it has poor voice quality while talking on the speaker phone.

When I am in the car and phone is on speaker, other side person can't hear me and my voice was completely broken.

I have found the same issue with my friends phone as well

Sometimes my customer find difficulty to hear my voice clearly and I have to keep my phone very near to my mouth and speak louder.

Setting a new standard for stunning design

Awesome camera, always sharp and steady

Go ultra high-res on the 64MP Main Camera with OIS for crisp, clear photos throughout the day. Expand the viewing angle with Ultra Wide Camera. And zoom to new distances with 3x optical zoom and 30X Space Zoom on the Telephoto Camera with OIS.

Capture details even in low light with OIS

Say bye to blurry photos and videos. OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) helps stabilise your shots to keep motion smooth and stills crisp - even when it's low light. The camera pulls in more light to brighten up your low light shots.
