The Galaxy A71 comes equipped with a quad-camera setup which includes a 64MP “Tetracel” camera, a 12MP ultra wide-angle camera, a 5MP macro camera, and a 5MP depth-sensing camera. There is also a flash, it’s made of a single-LED.


Located at the front of the phone is the selfie camera which sits in the punch-hole. This is a 32MP Quad Bayer selfie camera.


The camera app on this phone is the same one that’s present on every Samsung phone but it’s been slightly modified.


There’s a larger font for the mode as well as the outline for the selected mode instead of the solid bubble that was present before.


This camera app functions the same way as any other camera app out there. You can swipe right and left to switch between available modes.


You also have the option to remove or re-arrange some of the modes from the viewfinder. If you swipe vertically you can switch between the rear cameras and the selfie camera.


To modify the camera settings you can go to the settings icon which is located in the upper left corner of the display screen.


In the camera settings, you will have access to the location data, video resolution, grid lines and more.


You also have the ability to turn the Scene optimizer on and off and set the HDR mode to manual or auto.


There is also an aspect ratio selector in the viewfinder, this gives you the ability to use the 64MP mode – 4:3H instead of the 16MP 4:3 non-H.


There is also a Pro mode for people with knowledge of advanced photography. However, there’s no manual focus or shutter speed selector.


Photo Quality:


The primary camera on the Galaxy A71 shoots good photos, and the dynamic range is excellent. However, it’s boosted by the Auto HDR and when it has been triggered you will lose some fine detail in the photos.


The color contrast is good and the colors are rich and vibrant, they’re also slightly saturated and noise reduction is nice.


In general, the default 16MP photos are very good for a mid-range phone.


Samsung Galaxy A71 Video Recording:


The Galaxy A71 is capable of recording videos up to 2160p resolution with the primary camera, the ultrawide camera, and the selfie camera.


The primary camera shoots great 4K video at 1080p, and the dynamic range is good as well as the color contrast.


The ultrawide camera does a good job with its dynamic range and contrast, even though some fine detail is lost in the process.


Video stabilization is also available, but only at 1080p resolution, in both of the rear cameras and it works nicely.


The Super steady mode is sort of like an action camera mode which does a great job of stabilizing shaky footage.


Samsung Galaxy A71 Battery Life:


The Galaxy A71 features the same massive battery that the Galaxy A70 has, it’s a 4,500 mAh battery.


This phone has fast charging capabilities and it comes equipped with the 25W plug for fast charging.


You can charge the phone from 0 to 50% in half an hour and you can fully charge the phone in one hour and twenty minutes.


The battery life on this phone is amazing, it will last for over 2 days of moderate usage.


Samsung Galaxy A71 Performance:


The Galaxy A71 comes equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor, this is an upper-midrange processor.


This is a nice upgrade over the Galaxy A70’s Snapdragon 675. The 730 has newer GPU and CPU cores, and it’s built on an 8nm LPP node which makes it run more efficiently.


The Snapdragon 730 has an octa-core processor which has two Kryo 470 Gold (Cortex-A76) cores that are clocked at 2.2 GHz, as well as six Kryo 470 Silver (Cortex-A55) which work at 1.8 GHz.


The Adreno 618 is responsible for graphics, this is an upgrade from the Galaxy A70’s Adreno 612.


The Galaxy A71 comes with 128GB of internal storage, however, there are two variants, there’s the 6GB and the 8GB of RAM. The storage can be expanded up to 1TB via a microSD card.


My Final Thought:


The Galaxy A71 is a fast and responsive, beautiful mid-range phone which provides great overall performance.


However, I think the Galaxy A70 is still a great phone, I would not recommend that anyone who currently owns the Galaxy A70 should upgrade to the Galaxy A71 because the Galaxy A71 is an expensive mid-range phone.


If you currently own the Galaxy A70 and you would like to upgrade to the Galaxy A71, I would recommend that you wait a few months until the price drops. You can take a look at the Galaxy A71 on eBay.
