Galaxy A70 Review
Galaxy A70 Review: For several months, Samsung has flooded the market with smartphones that find their place in every price segment. The company has accepted the challenge and is trying to compete in the middle niche with Chinese manufacturers Oppo, Vivo, and even OnePlus. And as an “ace in the sleeve” Samsung uses gorgeous displays that were once reserved for flagships.
Galaxy A70 is not much different from the rest of the series. It has a Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, an Android Pie-based interface and three cameras on the back. Yes, it looks like a Galaxy A50, but there are several things in favor of the A70 – a tall display, fast charging and something else.
Samsung Galaxy A70 is designed to compete with other offers of the middle class in the market. Does he have a chance at that? Read the review by Financial Express.
Design, screen, and hardware
Samsung has lately been focusing on the design of its smartphones, and the Galaxy A70 is a prime example.
The phone looks great thanks to the shiny back surface that shimmers with all the colors of the rainbow. In this price range, it would be nice to see the glass surface, but so far only a polycarbonate case is available. At the back is the Samsung brand name, as well as an island with three camera eyes located above the LED flash.
The Galaxy A70 is a very high smartphone. Samsung says it’s the most towering display they have ever squeezed into a Galaxy phone, and that’s clear. Even though there are fragile front panels on all sides, the smartphone seems broad.
The Galaxy A70 Review comes with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a U-neck for the camera sensor. The show is quite high, some users may like it, but others seem cumbersome. Larger displays are generally designed for better multimedia playback – and in the case of the A70, this is true. The colors on the screen are bright; the clarity of the image is preserved even in direct sunlight. Watching videos on such a display is excellent. No wonder the device supports Netflix Full-HD content and Amazon Prime Video.
The fingerprint sensor is integrated under the display. But this is not the same as in the Galaxy S10 phones. The A70 uses an optical sensor instead of an ultrasonic one, and it doesn’t work as well and as fast as on the flagship.
On the right side is the volume rocker along with the power button. At the bottom, there is a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a USB-C port, the primary microphone, and speaker grill. There is no separate Bixby button, but you can start Bixby from the application (if someone might need it sometime).
The Galaxy A70 Review runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 octa-core processor, which is standard on most mid-range phones. It has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, which is enough. Also, the storage capacity can be expanded with a microSD card up to 512 GB in a dedicated slot.
Galaxy A70 Review : Camera
There are three cameras on the back of the Galaxy A70: the primary 32-megapixel camera with an aperture of f / 1.7, an ultra-wide-angle 8-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.
Photos in daylight come out with excellent details and have an acceptable dynamic range. There is an HDR mode. In low light, pictures are much worse. But the result of macro photography is impressive.
As for the ultra-wide sensor, it allows you to accommodate more elements in one frame. The photo quality is not as good as that of the primary lens, but acceptable. The third sensor is designed to create a bokeh effect in photos, and it does its job well, although the definition of the edges of the blur in portrait shots could be better.
The selfie camera on the Galaxy A70 Review received a 32-megapixel sensor. She gives pretty good pictures, which will be enough for posts on social networks. Beauty mode is turned on by default, but even if you turn it off, the skin tone in the photos is smoothed. There is a portrait mode.
Main cameras can record 4K video at 30 frames per second, and the front camera can shoot 1080p video. There is no OIS on the cameras, which is very lacking, mainly if you shoot video on the go. You can also shoot video on an ultra-wide sensor.
Sample shot on the Samsung Galaxy A70 Review :
Like most smartphones on the Snapdragon 675, the Galaxy A70 does an excellent job of everyday tasks. Due to the sufficient amount of memory, it does not hang even with several applications open in the background. Games are impressive too. There is no sagging frames, nor delays in games saturated with graphics, such as PUBG Mobile or Call of Duty Mobile, in the standard settings.
The user interface of the One UI is intuitive and attractive, but its main contribution to the Galaxy A70 is the convenience for a high display. The Galaxy A70 also has a Digital Wellbeing toolbar that tracks owner habits.
The Galaxy A70 Review is the first smartphone beyond the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series to feature Samsung Pay with the full functionality.
The Galaxy A70 has an impressive 4,500mAh battery that lasted one day with regular use. The autonomy test included half an hour viewing photos, playing for an hour, listening to music for a little over an hour and watching two episodes of the series on Netflix. The battery showed 13%.
The smartphone supports fast charging. In an hour and a half, you can charge it from 0 to 100%.
For its price Galaxy A70 Review offers a lot. The colorful screen is designed specifically for multimedia. The Snapdragon 675 is a reliable processor that will run for the next few years.
This smartphone provides the right balance between reliable equipment and user-friendly software. It can work with demanding games, provides a long battery life, super-fast charging, and full-fledged work Samsung Pay.
Among the shortcomings can be noted:
- poor pictures in low light;
- no optical image stabilization video;
- the speaker is not loud enough;
- not quite an accurate fingerprint sensor.
Overall, the AMOLED display, One UI software, and neat design give the new Samsung 2019 an unprecedented edge in the mid-range segment.
