The Samsung Galaxy A71 is the latest A-series smartphone from the company, and a smartphone that is easy on the pockets yet offers features that are best-in-class. It has a great camera setup and a premium design that turns heads wherever you take it. And it packs a powerful punch too, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 (8nm) processor that’s backed by 8GB of RAM and a large 4,500mAh battery. For the price tag of Rs 32,999, the Samsung Galaxy A71 is definitely a worthy device. Here’s a look at some of the features that make the smartphone truly a great choice.
Premium design in a slim package
This is a smartphone that offers a premium feel and look. Its large 6.7-inch display is surrounded by slim bezels all around, with a tiny punch-hole cutout on the panel to house the 32-megapixel front-facing camera. This helps the Samsung Galaxy A71 offer a large display while delivering an immersive experience in a profile that is not too big. Samsung has hidden the ambient sensor behind the glass, and there’s a very thin cutout at the top for the earpiece speaker. An in-display fingerprint scanner is also available.
The back panel and the frame of Samsung Galaxy A71 feature premium glossy finish with a smooth and elegant curved edge design. Thanks to the edges being slightly curved on both the front and the back, the phone is easy to grip. The back panel features a premium 3D Prism Crush pattern that produces impressive colors and hues when it catches some light. The phone is available in three color options, namely, Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush Silver, and Prism Crush Blue, which look elegant and will turn heads wherever you go.
Another good thing about the Galaxy A71 is its weight and sleek profile. Despite featuring a large display and a huge 4,500mAh battery, the phone only weighs 179 grams and sports a sleek 7.7mm design. The back panel provides a great grip, while the slim design makes it easy to hold.
The frame features the volume and power keys on the right side, while the left gets the SIM card tray with a microSD card slot. At the bottom, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, a microphone, and a loudspeaker.
Immersive display and powerful hardware
As mentioned earlier, the Galaxy A71 comes with a large 6.7-inch Infinity-O Super AMOLED plus display with FHD+ resolution that offers true-to-life colors. The punch-hole cutout doesn’t block much when watching videos or playing games. All of these design choices make sure your viewing experience is superlative, to say the least.
Inside, the smartphone is powered with the Octa-core Snapdragon 730 (8nm) processor, which is paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. This combination provides great performance for gaming, multitasking, and more. With the Game Booster technology, you can also play longer. The phone gets a 4,500mAh battery that can last more than a day, with up to 24 hours of video playback on a single charge. And when it does run low on power, you can recharge in no time with the 25W super-fast charging technology.
Cameras to focus on your world
Coming to the camera department, the Galaxy A71 sports an elegant rectangular quad camera setup. There are a total of four sensors here and a single LED flash placed in an L formation. The camera setup includes a 64-megapixel main unit, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, a 5-megapixel macro sensor, and another 5-megapixel depth unit. The primary camera ensures that everything around you is captured with excellent level of detail, so you never miss out on a single memory.
Similarly, the ultra-wide sensor has 123-degree field-of-view, the same as that of the human eye – this means the camera can capture everything you see in a scene, leaving out no detail. But it gets better! The smartphone comes with a dedicated ultra-wide-angle night mode that lets you capture as much as the eye can see even in extremely low light. That’s something no other smartphone offers in this price segment! The macro sensor is perfect for shooting small objects while the depth sensor ensures your portrait shots are truly pro-grade.
The built-in Live Focus feature ensures you have total control over how the portrait effect is going to turn out. With Live Focus, you can blur out the background of your frame as much as you like. Then there’s AR Doodle, which makes every video truly yours by letting you doodle and draw anything over it. The AR drawings will even move with you thanks to advanced face tracking.
Samsung has made a great smartphone that caters to the budget-minded. It is indeed an affordable phone with flagship features and unique design. The back panel and the slim design are sure to grab a lot of attention, while the Super AMOLED screen will keep you hooked. And all this at a price of Rs 32,999 is simply astounding!
