Samsung Galaxy A71 Review

Score: 10.42/10

Samsung Galaxy A71 is a top-notch cellphone launched in January, packed with a high-tech Octa-Core processor ticking at 2.2 GHz, a huge 6.7 inches screen, and 2 cameras, a 64 MP back camera and a 32 MP front camera. That's all? No, it's just the beginning of this in-depth review.

This device design combines Plastic and Plastic . The A71 feels much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone like this. This phone is incredibly slim and stilized, with a thickness of just 0.3". This phone just has 6.44 inches long, but it still manages to hold a 6.7" display. Samsung made this cellphone in lots of color variations: prism crush black, prism crush blue, prism crush pink and prism crush white.

Samsung decided to build this cellphone with a very powerful Octa-Core CPU running at 2200 megahertz, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SM7150-AA chip and a huge 6 GB RAM memory. This device counts with a 128 GB large internal storage and a slot for an external memory card, which allows you to install tons of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without even thinking about running out of space.

Samsung designed the Samsung Galaxy A71 with a great 6.7" screen, and a 1080 x 2400 resolution, making everything look brightful and colorful.

This cellphone provides wi-fi connection (and it can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) really quick connectivity and also HSPA+ internet connection (a slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone has dual SIM cards so it's able to use two different phone lines or carriers at the same time.

This phone has two cameras, a 64 MP back camera and a 32 mega-pixels front camera. this cellphone's back camera lens has an aperture of f/1.8 so it can capture great pictures even in poorly lit environments. It is also able to shoot 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 frames per second, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos at 960 fps (32 times slower ).

This cellphone also features plenty of useful features like Fingerprint unlock, Facial recognition to unlock, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories), GPS Localization and FM Radio, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone has a 4500 mAh huge Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for many hours without charging it. An issue to evaluate is that the A71's battery is non-removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to lose capacity, although with so much capacity you will probably replace this phone before it becomes an issue.

If you will use it as a gaming phone, are an amateur photographer, need a work phone or want it mostly for social networks and internet browsing, you will definitely be very pleased with this phone.
