Samsung Galaxy A73 Unboxing and First Impressions
Samsung Galaxy A73 Unboxing
The Samsung Galaxy A73 comes in your standard white box that looks pretty much the same as previous Galaxy A devices. The key difference here is that it’s noticeably thinner, and I’m sure you know what that means. If not, you will find out in just a bit.
Inside the box, you can find the following items:
- Quick start guide
- Warranty card
- Samsung Pay leaflet
- USB-C to USB-C cable
- SIM ejector tool
- The Samsung Galaxy A73 smartphone itself
Samsung Galaxy A73 First Impressions
Compared to its other Galaxy A siblings launched at the same time, the Samsung Galaxy A73 is the only one to be powered by a Snapdragon chip. To be precise, it’s the Snapdragon 778G SoC with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage. If that isn’t enough, you can get more by via virtual RAM and microSD card.
Powering all of this is a healthy 5,000mAh battery, which is expected to keep it powered for a good amount of time. In case you’re wondering, it does not come with a charger inside, and this is likely going to be the case with all Samsung smartphones moving forward. Should you be looking for a new charger, this one does have support for 25W fast charging.
Apart from that, you get a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and a quad-camera setup featuring a 108MP wide angle main camera. It’s interesting to see all of these come together to form a midrange smartphone since, chipset aside, it looks like something you’d typically see in a flagship device.
