Samsung Galaxy A70 review

by birtanpublished on November 27, 2020

Hey everyone over the past year and a half the smartphone mid-range has become incredibly competitive flagship feature has been brought down to more affordable phones and Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi have been hitting hard in 2018 however Samsung sort of missed the mark and now they're trying to up their mid-range game with their newest a series however the 400 euro or 400 dollar depending on where you live price segment is incredibly competitive so what does the ACE 70 offer you for the money I'm Angie for GSM marina and this is our Samsung Galaxy a7 deep review

the galaxy a 70 is not a small phone however it's surprisingly thin for how large it is the bezels are thin all around although the bottom one is thicker than the rest the notch is small and in contrast with the large screen you barely notice it the plastic back which Samsung coasts glass stick has a rainbow gradient when it catches the light it looks a little like the colors you'll see from oil spilled on what asphalt there's also the main triple camera setup thankfully the cameras don't stick

Out very much so the phone doesn't wobble when it's on a desk the buttons are nice and clicky and they're placed in a more intuitive position than the s10 series however the phone is still pretty wide and Wow when UI helps a lot it's not the easiest to use one-handed the galaxy a70 collects fingerprints pretty easily but while they're noticeable the phone doesn't turn into an oil slick it tends to be a little slippery but it's not like a bar of soap unlike some phones still I'd be pretty careful with it especially around water because it has even less IP protection

Than the original Galaxy a series as far as biometrics are concerned there's a face unlock option and an optical fingerprint reader if you get used to where it is you can even unlock your phone without needing to turn on the display speaking of the six point seven inch AMOLED is the biggest selling point of the Galaxy a7 T both figuratively and literally this is the biggest OLED screen you'll find in the mid-range galaxy lineup and even one of the biggest in Samsung's lineup aside from the s10 plus 5g yeah it's not quite HD like the s10 but it's a really good

Display it's decently color accurate and vivid mode and it's pretty much spot-on in normal mode brightness gets up to 407 it's if you bring it up manually and if you're in auto mode it gets up to 607 so sunlight legibility is great too and short media consumption is really good on this device there's a headphone jack on the bottom and sound isn't bad but it's not earning any bonus points either in some markets there's also NFC for easier Bluetooth connectivity if your headphones aren't wired and for things like samsung pay there's a tiny earpiece above the notch but it's not used for

Anything except for calls or there's no stereo speaker setup instead there's a single onward firing speaker it has above average loudness but isn't particularly rich in terms of sound quality so I'm right for the price range however despite being really thin the a 70 is packing a beefy 4,500 milliamp hour battery unsurprisingly it got an impressive 103 hours on our battery life tests it also includes faster charging the a 50 with its 25 watt charger mind you this is faster than the s10 2 and

You can get from 0 to 42% in 30 minutes of charging performance wise the galaxy is 70 performed well it was about 25% faster in tasks that required the CPU than the a 50 however the a 50 was about 10 percent faster with graphics performance this is pretty insignificant in day-to-day usage and for most use cases but it's interesting to note and it definitely surprised us the a7ii sports Android Pi with their newest one UI on top in classic Samsung style it's still packed full of customizations and features however it's a huge improvement to

Previous generations because everything is much cleaner easier to find and perhaps most importantly much easier to reach with just your thumb this is also why the icons are so much larger too samsung also has their own gestures which work fine but honestly aren't the most intuitive ones we've used other than that you'll still find an always-on display with plenty of options a digital well being submenu that shows you how much you use your phone and three power modes that give you a lot of control over your power consumption the a 70s triple camera setup features a 32

Megapixel main sensor and 8 megapixel ultra wide lens and a depth sensor sadly none of them have oh is by default the phone shoots in 12 megapixels but you can go to settings and change it to 32 instead however in high-res mode there's no HDR and unfortunately take a second or two longer to get your shot and the high-res mode daylight shots aren't bad however detail levels aren't what you'd expect from 32 megapixels photos are a bit soft despite software sharpening and though this worked for things like grass you

Can notice sharpening halos in a couple of places still the colors are quite accurate source good contrast spite the lack of HDR the Namek range is good too in the default mode images are good but detail and sharpness aren't the most impressive we've seen on a mid-range err colors and contrasts are quite good and that anemic range is simply excellent the ultra wide lens produces heavily distorted images still it fits a lot in the frame so it's a small price to pay colors and contrasts are excellent and the dynamic range is improved by the

Auto HDR in low-light the 32 megapixel photos are pretty bad so we'll just stick with the default mode however it still has poor levels of detail without HDR the low-light photos tend to be overexposed HDR fixes that but introduces a few issues of its own among which is uneven sharpness or extra softness possibly due to the imperfect photo stacking and good light portraits are impressive with no abrupt transitions in the background separation they're not always perfect but even flagships make blender sometimes the front camera is also a 32 megapixel one

And it too shoots 12 megapixel photos by default images are very detailed and have excellent colors selfie portraits are generally pretty good too but the phone really struggles with my hair the Galaxy a7 II can record 4k videos at 30fps they're nicely detailed and have excellent contrast and dynamic range colors are accurate too but sadly there is no electronic stabilization in Full HD footage is great too clips are highly detailed sharp and with little noise naturally colors and dynamic range are as good as in 4k the a 70 is a really

Good all-around phone that extra-large AMOLED is a rarity and it makes it pretty easy to recommend however if you don't need that bigger screen you don't need that extra bit of battery life then it actually go with the galaxy a 50 for 90 bucks less you get pretty much the same camera performance the same UI and pretty much the same speed especially if you get the version with 6 gigs of RAM also if you're a more interested in photography and videography let's get both of these phones pay 50 bucks more and go with the pixel 3 a still it all depends on what you need the most and

All in all the galaxy a 70 is one of the best mid-range earns around thanks for watching if you enjoyed this video hit the like button down below subscribe hit the bell icon and I'll see you next time
