  • Galaxy A33 5G Phone
  • USB C to C charging cable
  • SIM Ejector Pin
  • User Manual & Quick Start Guide

Do take note that the Galaxy A53/33/73 5G does not come with headphone, charger or USB C to 3.5mm audio adaptor, which is the same move they did with the Galaxy S and Z series. However this is to encourage a slim environmental friendly packaging and also to reduce electrical component waste, which everything that is lying around you such as power adaptor, earphones, headphone converters can be reused as the charging is relying on the commonly used USB type C interface. By chance if you don’t have any of it, its pretty easy to get one at any of your favorite phone accessories shop or you can just visit any Samsung Online Store or any Samsung Authorized Outlets to purchase one. We would recommend to get Samsung’s 25w charger and the Buds 2.

The color that we got for the unboxing is the Awesome Peach color, which represent the color suited for any environment to match with smooth textures, matted based finishing. This phone carries a weight of 186 Grams which is categorized as a standard on par weight phone that not heavy, easily pocketable and carry around anywhere.

The Galaxy A33 5G inherits some of the last year’s A series design with a seamless construction of a slim form factor with a slight bumped curved surrounding the island rear camera with a smooth touch material that is easy to hold, easy to wipe yet stylish to be shown with a depth of just 8.1mm. The Galaxy A33 5G features a 6.4 inch FHD flat Super AMOLED Infinity U display with 90Hz refresh rate that brings all the smooth scrolling and viewing that is suitable in most environment. All of this year’s A series design will carry the same design language, no matter which model you get, it will be looking strikingly the same.

At the back of the phone you will spot an island of lenses consisting of one 48MP wide lens with PDAF and OIS, one 8MP ultrawide lens, a 5MP macro lens and 2MP depth lens followed by a camera flash. Over to the front side, which is the main display there is one 13MP wide angle camera, perfect for those who likes to take a lot of portrait selfies and live video social blogging. All of the camera in the phone is able to capture wide angle images with Portrait capability and vast choice of filters available.

Performance specs wise, the SAMSUNG Galaxy A33 5G is powered by the new Samsung’s Exynos 1280 5nm with 5G modem which is the first for this year’s introduction of efficient processors which Samsung chose to be on the A33 5G and A53 lineups with up to 128GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM with RAM expansion up to 8GB that ensures smooth app and game switching in an instant when you needed it the most. The set of configurations is set towards targeting the users craving for a phone that does all at the mid tier affordability with certain flagship features. Usage wise it is a phone that keeps all your work and play in one, with fast paced display that keeps up on your needs that lasts more than a day with its 5000mAh battery. Watching movies sure is not an issue as it supports variety of playback formats and L1 Widevine certification. On top of that you will also get a pleasant and reasonable audio experience with its top and bottom firing speakers powered by Dolby Audio.

Overall on my few days of impression with the SAMSUNG Galaxy A33 5G, it is a bang for the buck phone that is priced right with a balanced set of camera, processor and internal storage combining up as a sociable fun phone.
