About Samsung Galaxy A71 - Review, Specs + more

The Samsung Galaxy A71 launches itself proudly, right into pole position: it's not quite all-new, but will surely be the star of the Galaxy A series, even offering a slightly modified design. The mid-range smartphone remains in the same sizing as before, i.e. 6.7-inch format, but comes with a new quad camera.

So is it worth opting for this when its predecessor the Galaxy A70 was such a great phone (and still is?) - let's find out.

Summary of contents

  1. At a glance:
  2. New camera, 64 megapixels
  3. Solid mid-range performance
  4. Other phones to also consider:
  5. Price of Galaxy A71 in UK
  6. Our Verdict

At a glance:

The most notable features of the Samsung Galaxy A71 are the full HD+ display, the 64-megapixel main camera and the long-lasting 4500mAh battery.

The launch to the new 2020 Galaxy A models  is here and this starts with the big Samsung Galaxy A71. Its large 6.7-inch display remains with the full HD+ resolution of the previous Galaxy A70.

ANd although the resolution of 2400 × 1080 pixels is not too high for a middle range phone, the display can fully convince in terms of colour and contrast range. Samsung have also given the Super AMOLED display a more modern design.

On the one hand, the refreshed and almost borderless design reduces the housing dimensions by a few millimetres compared to the predecessor but on the other hand, the somewhat old-fashioned notch has gone. As a result, the 32 megapixel selfie camera is only visible through a discreet hole in the display.

As with the predecessor, the front is protected by a robust Gorilla 3 glass - this isn't quite as strong as we'd have liked, nor as new, but presumably Samsung is saving the higher-end Gorilla Glass for the "S" range, such as the new Galaxy S20, and the last thing they want is to eat into their prized flagship's sales.

New camera, 64 megapixels

The plastic back is still present sadly, but for most people this won't matter. In the UK there are three launch colours: Pink, Silver, Blue and Black. These are sometimes called Crush or Prism colours. Anyway, onto that camera setup...

At the top left, the new quad camera should catch your eye. While the main camera of the predecessor still worked with 32 megapixels, the new model uses double the resolution. The 64-megapixel wide angle has a focal length of 24 mm and should be very well suited for low-light subjects with an aperture of f/1.8.

According to experts, the image quality of the camera makes a good impression but it's not something we've managed to be able to test yet.

Once the A71 is fully launched in the UK we hope to bring you an updated review here. One thing is clear though, even in low light, the sensor should provide more image information than that of the previous Samsung Galaxy A70 model.

Talking about the main camera, an ultra-wide-angle lens with 12 megapixels is housed in the striking lens field similar to the flagship model of Saumsung’s main competition – the iPhone 11. The 13 mm focal length is also very bright at f / 2.2. There is also a new 5-megapixel macro lens, the image quality of which, is very good, but not particularly outstanding.

With the 5-megapixel depth sensor, you can adjust the depth of field before and after the shot to give the images an aesthetic professional affect. You'll find this feature only on higher-end smartphones up to now.

 

Solid mid-range performance

The rest of the performance remains at a similar level to that of the previous Galaxy A70 model. The new mid-range Snapdragon 730 processor is now used, which promises smooth operation with Android 10.

Apart from the slightly higher processor clock speed, the memory values ​​do not differ from the previous A70 model. The main memory card is 6GB and provides sufficient capacity, while the internal memory is still 128GB. In addition to the two SIM card slots, the memory can be expanded with a micro SD card.

And as for the battery? With a 4500 mAh battery, the battery capacity of the Galaxy A71 remains the same as that of the Galaxy A70 - no surprise here. Samsung has obviously decided on the "if it aint broke" mantra.

And just as with the Galaxy A70, quick charging with 25 W is possible.

If you’re looking for a mid-range smartphone from one of the best manufacturers in the world, then you can’t go far wrong with the Samsung Galaxy A71. For the money you pay you won’t get much groundbreaking technology, but if it’s speed and reliability that you’re after, then the Galaxy A71 is a no-brainer.

Price of Galaxy A71 in UK

At launch, the UK price for the Galaxy A71 is £399.

Considering the "S" range of phones is about twice the price, the A series just make so much sense. It's quite surprising really that people are still even considering buying an S20 when this is almost as good - for literally 1/2 the price.

if you prefer to purchase your Galaxy A71 via pay monthly, then we are already comparing contract prices here at oneCompare - before the A71 has even fully launched. Use the table above to compare monthly prices and find your perfect deal - whether you want loads of data, unlimited minutes, or anything else.

The current cheap monthly contract price is £22 a month through BT but we compare 1000s of deals on this model, so be sure to adjust the sliders above to find your perfect match!

Our Verdict

The Galaxy A71 is a thoughtful refresh over the Galaxy A70 even though it won't exactly make too many A70 owners jump ship. But it does pack more gaming punch and more camera pixels, so it does pass as a welcome update to an already brilliant phone.

The Galaxy A71 adopts the punch-hole notch design, but the actual hole is not as discrete as on the more expensive S and Note models. Still, it's a statement for the premium status of the A-series as is the massive multi-camera setup on the back.

Is SIM Only better for Galaxy A71?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Samsung Galaxy A71, 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 A71 ee contract or a Samsung Galaxy A71 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 A71 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!

Out of our 838 Samsung Galaxy A71 deals, our cheapest Samsung Galaxy A71 deal over the entire life of the contract is £506.00, 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 A71 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.

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 A71 handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Samsung Galaxy A71 Contract.
