The design of the Galaxy M33 corresponds to the features of the M-series. It has rounded edges and a teardrop-shaped display, which we know from other models of the company.

Available in fresh colors - navy blue, mysterious green and brown.

The front of the smartphone impresses with the vision of Infinity V Display. The display is impressive in size and will definitely appeal to anyone looking for a device that can fully enjoy games, applications, videos and e-books.

The protection with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 provides additional security in the long service life of the device.

The fingerprint scanner is positioned sideways. You will easily get used to its location. The sensor is responsive and unlocking the Galaxy M33 is instant.

As the smartphone is not included with the case, you can look for one early.


Galaxy M33 has a 6.6-inch FHD + Infinity V Display with 120 Hz refresh rate. The picture is high quality, with beautiful and dense colors and a satisfactory maximum level of brightness. There is no reason to doubt the excellent performance.

With an aspect ratio of 20: 9, you get a typical content view. Interestingly, the frames remain thick - this decision can affect your choice. At the same time, many users nowadays do not give up stable edging, as this way they avoid accidental touching of the screen.


Looking at the performance of the Galaxy M33, it is impressive that the company has focused on the famous Exynos 1280 chipset. It offers the same level of performance as the Snapdragon 778G. Samsung defines it as a processor that combines impeccable speed and performance. In practice, however, you will notice that it takes some time for the phone to wake up, install applications and games. Heavier games are a challenge.

At the same time, the device comes with Android 12 and One UI 4. From the beginning you will notice that many applications are installed at the factory. You can delete some of them if you wish.

Here is the place to add that the Galaxy M33 supports 5G networks. Available in two versions - with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. You can always count on more storage space by taking advantage of the memory card slot.


Galaxy M33 has a quadruple camera on the rear panel. It consists of a 50-megapixel main module and a 5-megapixel 120-degree camera with which you will make impressive group portraits. Two 2 MP auxiliary modules are responsible for the bokeh effect and macro shots.

The Galaxy M33's cameras are good, but not impressive for this class. With them you will create bright and quality photos in daylight. With the onset of night and indoors, expect more boring colors and noises. With the rear camera you can make exciting 4K videos.

As for the front camera, it is single and 8-megapixel. Don't expect high results from it. At night, shots can be very blurred. If you are looking for a Motorola model with better photo capabilities, take a look at the Moto G22 model.

Useful features

In the Galaxy M33 you will find Voice Focus technology. You will feel more comfortable with it when you have a phone call and it is noisy around. Voice Focus neutralizes the noisy atmosphere so you can hear all the important details.

Another useful feature in the smartphone is Power Cool Technology. With it you do not need to worry that the device will overheat. The temperature is under control!
