Design

The back of the Realme 8 Pro is made of polycarbonate material with a matte design, but it is as reflective as a mirror which is what can be seen when the device is under the sun. The smartphone comes in three colors, which are black, blue and yellow

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy A72 features a kind of beautiful design that features a glossy finish that attracts more fingerprints, unlike the Realme phone, the phone comes in distinctive black, white, blue and purple color options.

Both smartphones feature a hole punch hole in order to house the front camera. Although both have thin side bezels, the Realme 8 Pro has a thicker chin than the Samsung Galaxy A72.

There is on the back of both phones the brand name of the manufacturer at the bottom, and both phones have quad rear cameras.

The positions of the buttons on smartphones differ from one another. Realme 8 Pro has a volume button on the left side.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy A72 keeps the power button on the right side, the same goes for the Realme 8 Pro in terms of the power button.

The usual ports are also available on the bottom of the smartphone, including the 3.5mm headphone jack and the USB-C port. The Samsung Galaxy A72 microphone is located between the USB C port and the individual speakers while it is next to the USB-C and 3.5mm audio jack of the Realme 8 Pro.

In terms of weight, the Realme 8 Pro is even less. It is 1 mm thicker and 3 grams heavier than the Samsung Galaxy A72. The front and back edges are also more rounded when compared to the Samsung Galaxy A72. But the latter provides a more comfortable grip even in one hand. For this aspect, we will choose the Samsung phone.

Display

Both smartphones are equipped with an FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. However, the Samsung Galaxy A72 comes with a larger 6.7-inch screen, while the Realme 8 Pro comes with a smaller 6.4-inch screen.

Both phones are equipped with HD displays that are ideal for watching videos and games. Both provide vibrant colors. However, the colors in the Realme 8 Pro are sharper while the Samsung Galaxy A72 features cooler colors. The feature that favored the Samsung phone is the refresh rate, where the A72 comes with a refresh rate of 90 Hz for the first time in Samsung phones in the middle class, while the Realme phone screen comes with a standard refresh rate of 60 Hz.

Camera

Both phones pack a quad-back camera, where the Realme phone comes with a 108MP main camera with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro sensor and depth, while the A72 packs a 64MP primary camera with an 8MP telephoto sensor that supports true optical zoom up to x3 along with a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 5MP macro sensor.

When it comes to selfies, Realme 8 Pro produces sharper photos and has better focus than Samsung Galaxy A72. However, Samsung's phone produces more accurate colors while the former has sharper colors.

However, the Samsung Galaxy A72 has better facelifts. At maximum settings, the photos captured with Realme phone look more synthetic. While selfies on Galaxy A72 look more natural with retained skin tone, more noticeable eyebrows and better color contrast.

Both devices perform well in low-light environments. However, the performance of the Samsung phone was the best overall, we also have a diversity in terms of the photographic experience of the Samsung phone where we have a sensor after photo that is able to support a distinct real optical zoom, a feature we see for the first time in a phone in the middle class, so the winner in that aspect of the comparison is very clear.

Internal Hardware

Both phones are powered by the same processor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G, so do not expect big differences between the two phones in terms of performance, the Realme phone comes with 6 or 8 GB RAM options, while the internal storage space does not exceed 128 GB, while the lower version of the A72 starts from 6 + 128 GB all the way to the higher version 8 + 256 GB.

The only noticeable difference in the user experience may be the user interface, where the cuff tends in favor of the Samsung phone that comes with the new One UI 3.1 interface, which has many features and features that will surely impress the user.

Battery

The Realme 8 Pro comes with a 4500 mAh battery versus a 5000 mAh cell that powers the Samsung phone, Realme gets the privilege here because its phone battery supports 50-watt fast charging, where half of the phone's battery can be charged in just 17 minutes! While Samsung is still sticking to the 25W capacity.

The Realme phone provides better battery life, but not by a big difference due to its screen, which supports a standard refresh rate, unlike the Samsung phone, whose battery life is affected by the 90Hz refresh rate.

Other specs

Both phones support 4G networks only and we do not have 5G support, both of them also support the installation of two SIM cards with the ability to install an external memory card in order to expand the internal storage space, we have a 3.5 mm port while the Samsung phone comes with stereo speakers and the Realme phone lacks that feature.

Price

Realme 8 Pro comes at $ 250 for the initial version that comes with 6 + 128 GB, while the Galaxy A72 was priced at $ 530, almost double the price, for the 6 + 128GB version. Both phones are available in limited markets currently, and they will reach the global launch stage during the coming period.

Finally

The two devices are definitely great and the differences between them are not great, when we get to a dilemma related to the decision to buy any of them, so the decisive issue here is the price, the Samsung phone comes with twice the price of the Realme phone because it comes with a Telephoto sensor and a refresh rate of 90 Hz.

The Realme phone supports 50W fast charging, double the charging capacity of the Samsung phone, while it comes with an exciting 108MP main camera, so decide yourself which one to buy, but bear in mind that the differences in favor of a Samsung phone do not require paying double the price.
