#UnboxingWithPamper: Samsung Galaxy A33 5G

We’re back with our first smartphone #UnboxingwithPamper for 2022! This time, we’re going to unbox and give our first impression on one of the latest Samsung Galaxy A series, the Galaxy A33 5G, ahead of its official drop in Malaysia. The device, which is now on pre-order in Malaysia at RM1,499 – is said to be Samsung’s mid-range phone comes with rich features and 5G connectivity, so what you can expect from the device? Let’s find out.

Based on the specifications disclosed on Samsung’s website, the Galaxy A33 5G is powered by a 5nm Octa-core processor and coupled with 128GB storage with expandable RAM up to 1TB + 8GB Memory with extra Virtual RAM, boasts a 5,000mAh massive battery that is supported by super fast charging up to 25W and power-saving technology, and comes with an AI-powered quad-camera system. Just looking at these specifications,  it sounds promising enough for us to give them a try!

But before we go into the performance details of the Galaxy A33 5G, let’s talk about the basics first. The device comes in four colours, including Awesome Blue, Awesome Black, Awesome White, and Awesome Peach. The colour of the unit we chosen is Awesome Blue that gives a subtle yet fresh visual appeal – and we would say it’s the best colour among the 4 colour variations!

The device comes with a USB Type-C cable, SIM ejector tool, warranty card and quick start guide. Pretty basic, and it doesn’t come bundled with a charger or an earphone in the box.

The overall design of the device is breathtakingly sleek! With a body that’s just 74.0mm x 159.7mm x 8.1mm in dimensions and weighs 186 grams, the Galaxy A33 5G is light enough – and just nice to hold in the hand.

The device has a matte finish flesh with a polished plastic side frame. On the right edge of the device, you’ve got the power button and volume rocker; and a dual-card slot with support for one nano SIM cards and one MicroSD card on the top side of the device. The speaker grille and USB Type-C port are on the bottom side.

The screen is 6.4-inch across, with a FHD+ Super AMOLED display and 90Hz screen refresh rate. The screen is broken up by a tiny teardrop notch at the top for a 13-megapixel front camera with f/2.2 aperture.

The Quad camera module and a flash are tucked on the upper left side of the back of the device, while the Samsung branding is positioned at the lower centre. The main camera is 48-megapixel, supported by a 8-megapixel ultrawide, 5-megapixel macro and 2-megapixel depth-sensing lens.
