About Galaxy A70 - Review, Specs + more

With the Galaxy A70,  Samsung complements the "upper middle" class segment of the Galaxy A series. The rather long smartphone offers with it a brilliant OLED display and an extra-large battery - some serious perks to accompany you reliably in everyday life.

Samsung Galaxy A70 - facts you need to know:

  • Display with extra wide 20: 9 aspect ratio for videos
  • Optimisation of images by clever AI
  • 4500 mAh battery with convenient fast charge function

The Galaxy A70 was the top of the mid-range A-series until it was replaced by the  Galaxy A80. There's no news on the A90 yet - it seems to be a few months off at least. So is the A70 still worth buying on contract - or should you opt for the newer and more expensive A80? Let's find out...

A wonderful screen

The A70 has a huge 6.7-inch OLED display, which displays Full HD Plus quality - a total of 2400 × 1080 pixels. In order to use as much as possible the entire surface for the touch screen, the front camera is integrated with a stunning 32-megapixel front camera on the upper edge of the display.

As for the technical achievements of the Galaxy A70’s FHD+ (2,400 x 1,080) screen, I found that it was capable of producing 100% of the sRGB colour gamut in the phone’s “Natural” display setting, according to our in-house display colorimeter. An average Delta E of 2.25 is very impressive for a phone this cheap, although I did notice some slight oversaturation in light and dark green tones. Rest assured all other colours looked as good as can be, with particularly vibrant red tones and a deep, inky-looking black.

The more expensive Galaxy S10 models have also added the fingerprint sensor built into the display, so if you really want that function then you'll need to spend (even) more on the S range.

In terms of performance, the A70 phone is surprisingly solid. Inside, a Qualcomm octa-core processor is working, with its 2GHz clocking and a 6GB memory for proper tempo. For apps and own files, an internal 128GB memory is more than sufficient.

We first saw this mid-range chipset powering the Vivo V15 Pro earlier this year, although, bizarrely, the cheaper Galaxy A50 uses the Samsung-made Exynos 9610 processor, which is clocked slightly higher. 

Almost-perfect captures

Photos and videos are created with a triple camera on the back. The wide-angle module captures the scenery well with an angle of view of 78 ° and a decent resolution of 32 megapixels. For group photos in confined spaces, the ultra wide-angle lens with a generous 123-degree angle is recommended.

However, given the  somewhat poor 8 megapixel resolution, it only promises snapshot quality. The third optic is used for depth measurement to give the pictures a nice bokeh effect - surprising that it's found on this model since this is normally the reserve of more pricey models only.

That said, since the main camera has an 8x digital zoom function, some users may miss an optical image stabiliser.

Galaxy A70 - The oneCOMPARE Verdict

Samsung manages to just about find the right balance between affordability and features. However, Samsung’s contentious market saturation presents a potential stumbling block.

The A70 is already having to compete with five other Galaxy A-branded phones at the moment, while also facing stiff competition from other smartphone makers. The Huawei P30 would probably be our first choice, then the A70 after it, if we were looking for a mid-range phone not by Apple.

Is SIM Only better for Galaxy A70?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Samsung Galaxy A70, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Samsung Galaxy A70 ee contract or a Samsung Galaxy A70 Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Samsung Galaxy A70 contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 8489 Samsung Galaxy A70 deals, our cheapest Samsung Galaxy A70 deal over the entire life of the contract is £312.00, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Samsung Galaxy A70 SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Samsung Galaxy A70 handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Samsung Galaxy A70 Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Samsung Galaxy A70 phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
