And it’s time to compare two smartphones that promise to be the best investment of the year, the Galaxy A72 and the Redmi Note 10 Pro.

With a completely plastic construction, which has a great matte finish, the Galaxy A72 weighs just 0,447 lbs.
It carries a large 6.7 inch screen, a set of 4 cameras, and even has a 3.5mm output for conventional headphones.
In addition to having Gorilla Glass 5, it has excellent waterproof protection by ip67 that ensures that the smartphone can be submerged in 328 ft for up to 30min.
Unfortunately, it comes with a hybrid drawer that doesn’t allow the use of two chips, however we’ve expanded the smartphone’s memory.

The Note 10 Pro has Gorilla Glass 5 protection against falls and scratches and, as a bonus, it carries IP53 protection for splashing water.
