Galaxy A73 vs A71: A Worthy Upgrade If You Can Skip the 3.5mm Port

Galaxy A73 vs A71: A Worthy Upgrade If You Can Skip the 3.5mm Port

The Galaxy A33 and A53 were the main players at today’s event, but Samsung also talked about the Galaxy A73 relatively briefly. At least it acknowledged it and revealed the official spec sheet.

Galaxy A71 customers want to upgrade to Galaxy A73. And the good news, this year’s model has an updated design, better build quality with sturdier materials, a new camera with a very high-resolution sensor, better firmware, an upgraded display, and more. Here’s how they compare.

Galaxy A73 vs Galaxy A71: Design and build quality

In terms of design and build quality, the Galaxy A73 definitely looks more modern and mature due to its matte paint finish and camera housing design.

But it’s not just going to look better from 2020 onwards. The Galaxy A73 uses improved Gorilla Glass (version 5) to protect the display, and the device was sealed with an IP67 rating.

The IP67 certification indicates that the Galax A73 is resistant to dust mites and can survive a quick dip in fresh water. In contrast, the Galaxy A71 has a colourful, glossy back panel, Gorilla Glass 3, and lacks an IP rating.

Galaxy A73 vs Galaxy A71: Display

On the face of it, not much has changed regarding the display technology for the Galaxy A7X series. But appearances can be deceiving.

The Galaxy A73 sports a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED+ Infinity-O display, which doesn’t look like an upgrade over the 2020 model. However, Samsung gave the Galaxy A73 a 120Hz panel, which means it can render twice the amount of frames and offer smoother animations and better (alleged) tactile response times.

Galaxy A73 vs Galaxy A71: Firmware Support

Samsung is upping its firmware game again. After announcing three major OS upgrades for select phones last year, Samsung has extended that period to include four major OS upgrades and up to five years of security patches.

The Galaxy A73 is one of the phones that will take advantage of Samsung’s new policy. It comes with Android 12 (One UI 4.1) and should be upgraded to Android 13, 14 and 16 throughout its lifetime.

The Galaxy A73 offers a better software experience than the A71. Not only this, Samsung has set the stage for the A73 to be relevant and safe to use for a long time.

Galaxy A73 vs Galaxy A71: Performance

The Galaxy A73 has the best mid-range chipset ever. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC, which offers plenty of CPU and GPU power to handle almost any mobile task.

In contrast, the Galaxy A71 hides a Snapdragon 730 SoC, while the 5G variant is powered by Exynos 980. Both the chips were manufactured on an 8nm process, while the new Snapdragon 778G is based on a 6nm node.

All things considered, the Galaxy A73 should deliver equally great performance and power efficiency.

Galaxy A73 vs Galaxy A71: Camera

Samsung has upgraded this year’s mid-range camera system, and the Galaxy A73 packs a new 108MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS (optical image stabilization). This almost doubles the resolution of the Galaxy A71’s 64MP sensor.

In addition, the new device is equipped with a 12MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide camera, and two 5MP (f/2.4) depth and macro sensors. The selfie camera appears to be the same with a resolution of 32MP and an f/2.2 aperture.

Camera hardware aside, the Galaxy A73 ships with new firmware and a chipset capable of more advanced camera and AI camera features. Furthermore, with subsequent Android OS and One UI upgrades, the Galaxy A73’s camera experience should continue to improve in the years to come.

Galaxy A73 vs Galaxy A71: Other hardware specs

Just like the Galaxy A71, the new 2022 model relies on a battery with 25W super-fast charging.

However, the Galaxy A73 should offer better battery life for a few reasons. Firstly, the new 6nm chipset should be more energy-efficient than the 8nm solutions. And secondly, the Galaxy A73 has a slightly bigger battery with a capacity of 5,000mAH.

Other notable features include better connectivity enabled by the new chipset, such as Wi-Fi 6e and 5G.

One thing to note is that the Galaxy A73 doesn’t come with a wall charger, so you may have to buy a separate one or reuse your existing Galaxy A71 charger. The 3.5mm audio port is also gone, and if you don’t have USB-C or a pair of wireless earbuds, the only other option you have is to use a dongle.

Galaxy A73 vs Galaxy A71: Is the 2022 model worth it?

Barring some of the features mentioned above, the Galaxy A73 appears to be a better upgrade than the 2020 model.

There’s more processing power on the Tap, plus better firmware support with four major OS upgrade guarantees, a better main camera, and a display that can render animations more smoothly. If anything, the Galaxy A73 is the definition of an upgrade.
