Samsung Galaxy A72 Price in Kenya

The Samsung Galaxy A72 price in Kenya is Ksh 47,000. It is available in Awesome Black, Awesome White, Awesome Blue, and Awesome Violet colors, depending on the market. Samsung announced the Samsung Galaxy A72 smartphone which will succeed the Galaxy A71 from 2020, January 17. Unlike its predecessor, it will feature a Snapdragon 720G 8nm chipset and debut with Samsung’s new One UI 3.1 on top of Android11. The A72 will also have a larger Li-Po 5000 mAh and an Adreno 618 GPU.


The Samsung Galaxy A72’s design is no surprise if you are familiar with Samsung’s phones. It looks everything like the Galaxy A52 smartphone it was launched alongside in 2021, March 17. It’s made of Glass front (Gorilla Glass), plastic back, and aluminum frame. It even brings back some finishes from what we would want to consider its predecessor. There’s a new texture underneath this time around to sets it apart. And by the way, Galaxy A-Series brings IP67 dust/water resistance (up to 1m for 30 mins) on this smartphone. How cool is that?


One thing that is no surprise here is the trademark Samsung infinity display is a 6.7 inch Super AMOLED with a 90Hz refresh rate and 1080 p resolution. And though it isn’t curved, it does have some really slim bezels. Instead of a notch for the selfie cam. There’s a punch hole. It’s not totally unobtrusive, but it’s all right. The viewing experience on this screen is great with plenty of sharpness and of course, contrast. Colors can be set accurately in the color settings. And brightness is respectable. You can get over 800 nits with a manual slider. There’s an always-on display, which will show you the time and notifications when the phone is asleep. And there’s a reliable under-display fingerprint reader to wake up the phone with.


The Samsung Galaxy A72 quad cameras are probably as big a change from last year’s model. There’s a 64-megapixel quad main camera, an 8-megapixel telephoto cam a 5-megapixel macro shooter, and a 5MP depth sensor in daylight. The main cam takes decent pictures. There are good sharpness wide dynamic range, low noise, and balanced colors. You can shoot in the full 64 megapixels too, but these don’t give you much benefit. The file size is much larger.  

  Now, Samsung Galaxy A72 has a 32-megapixel selfie camera. You would expect 8-megapixel photos. But for some reason, they come out in 12 megapixels instead. Perhaps through upscale. Selfies turn out good with nice colors. Why dynamic range and plenty of detail. The ultra-wide-angle camera is quite capable of a mid-ranger. Sharpness and dynamic range are both quite good making this a significant upgrade. Portraits taken with the main camera and that sensor are really good too.

Video recording

One feature you won’t find just anywhere is a 4K video recording from this selfie camera. But these videos look good with nice exposure. The Samsung Galaxy A72 can also record and up to 4k at 30 FPS with its main camera and ultra-wide cam footage from the main camera, it looks decent. The colors are accurate and the dynamic range is wide. It does have a pretty good dynamic range too. Stabilization is only available when we’re recording in 1080p. And stabilized footage from the ultra-wide is super smooth.

Performance and platform

Samsung’s latest One UI 3.1 over Android11 has been included on Galaxy A72. Some of the new features include a dark mode for your menus and a new set of gestures for navigation. Here, you swipe from the sides to go back rather than swiping from the bottom like before. But the old options are still there if you want. You also have edge panels here, which can be pretty handy swiping on the edge of the screen will bring you to a customizable space for shortcuts. At the heart of the Galaxy A72, is Samsung’s new Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset.

Battery and more

So then how’s the battery life. Well, the Galaxy A72 has an endurance rating better than 93 hours of Galaxy A52. It packs a hefty Li-Po 5,000 mAh, a non-removable battery which is an improvement over the original Galaxy A71‘s Li-Po 4000 mAh capacity if you remember. Of course, fast battery charging is available on this one. And you should expect it to outdo A51’s 35% in half an hour. For audio, loudspeaker quality is decent. There’s a 3.5-millimeter audio jack on the Galaxy A72 for headphones. Actually, the quality here is great with Stereo speakers tuned by AKG and supports Dolby Atmos. There’s a lot of volumes and not a lot of distortion.  Also you can look at Samsung A71
