Samsung Galaxy A71

Samsung released the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A70 smartphones last year, which were both regarded as attractive and reliable mid-range options. We were particularly delighted by the Galaxy A70's large and gorgeous AMOLED display, long-lasting battery, and versatile triple cameras. Both of these smartphones have now been replaced by the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71, which have improved hardware and designs while maintaining the essence of the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A70.

We've already looked at the Samsung Galaxy A51, and today we'll take a look at the Samsung Galaxy A71. The Galaxy A71 is a larger phone than the Galaxy A51, and it was released in India for Rs 29,999. A Super AMOLED Plus display, Snapdragon 730 SoC, 64MP quad cameras, and Android 10 out of the box are among the features of the sub-Rs 30,000 smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy A71 is a worthy successor to the Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A70s smartphones from last year. The huge AMOLED display is still gorgeous, and the internals have been beefed up owing to an efficient Snapdragon 730 SoC at the heart, which also contributes to the phone's extended battery life. The Galaxy A71, on the other hand, competes with phones like the Redmi K20 Pro and Realme X2 Pro, which offer greater specs at lesser rates.

Design and display

In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy A71 is very similar to the Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A70s. Like its predecessors, it boasts a huge form factor and a large display. Despite the phone's large 6.7-inch screen and 4,500mAh battery, it is slim and light, measuring just 7.7mm thick and weighing 179 kilos. This makes the phone comfortable to handle when walking or playing games for lengthy periods of time.

The Galaxy A71's curved rear panel, which almost seamlessly meets the frame, is another reason it feels excellent in the hand. The back panel has a glasstic finish rather than pure glass, which may disappoint those who prefer Gorilla Glass's durability. While the glossy glasstic panel looks like glass, it is more vulnerable to scratches and scuffs. The Galaxy A71 is available in three colours: Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush Blue, and Prism Crush Silver. When you look at the phone at certain angles under light, the cross pattern on the back panel appears to be subtle, and you get a gradient prism appearance.

The power button is easy to reach on the right side of the frame, but the volume controls are higher up the frame and will require you to alter your grip to access them. The card tray on the left side of the frame can contain two nano SIM cards and a microSD card (up to 512GB). A Type-C port is located on the bottom of the frame, flanked by a speaker grille and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

When it comes to the display, the Galaxy A71 has the same 6.7-inch screen as its predecessor. Instead of a waterdrop notch, Samsung has gone with a punch-hole cutout in the centre. When compared to the Galaxy S10 Lite, which has a punch-hole display as well, the two phones are almost indistinguishable. Edge-to-edge displays and minimal bezels are available on both phones.

The Galaxy A71 has a dazzling and appealing FHD+ (10802400) Super AMOLED Plus display, which comes as no surprise. On the screen, the colours are vibrant and rich, and the blacks are deep and gorgeous. The screen's viewing angles and brightness levels are superb. The device is Widevine L1 certified, which means you'll be able to stream video in crisp full HD resolution from services like Netflix and Prime Video. Content appeared sharp and colours popped with vibrancy while watching 1080p videos on YouTube. By going to the Display area of the Settings menu, you may also choose more natural-looking colours.


On the Galaxy A70s, Samsung has expanded the number of cameras. The Galaxy A70s has a quad camera configuration, as opposed to the previous two models' triple cameras. The Samsung GW1's primary sensor shoots 16MP shots and use pixel binning to produce brighter, clearer images. A 12MP wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro lens, and a 5MP depth sensor are included with the high-resolution camera.

In daylight, you can anticipate clear and detailed photographs from the primary camera. We took a number of exterior images to capture the scenery surrounding us, and the photos turned out to be vivid and colourful. With scene detection enabled, images can appear a little oversaturated, but they are still appealing. You can turn off the AI to capture more natural-looking colours that are just as pleasing. When pixel binning, the main camera has a good dynamic range. You'll lose HDR if you go to raw 64MP mode, therefore you should only use it if you want to blow up a photo or zoom in and save the details.

The 12MP wide-angle lens does a good job of keeping colour temperature consistent. You get some detail as well, but don't expect images to be as clear as those captured by the main camera. The camera's 5MP macro lens is useful for getting close-up photographs. If you want your macros to come out clear, you'll need to be completely still. The macros we clicked four times out of five came out blurry. The colour temperature of the subject is also substantially altered when using a macro lens.

When it comes to night photography, the Galaxy A71's main camera will automatically shoot bright but noisy images. Low-light images will appear sharper if you use the dedicated night mode, since the AI adjusts exposure settings and decreases noise levels to some extent. Both the main camera and the wide-angle lens feature night mode.

Both the front and rear cameras are capable of recording videos in UHD definition, which is fantastic. You can also shoot wide-angle films, however the Super Steady mode is only available on the main camera. When you enable the Super Steady mode, you'll be able to record steady, shake-free films that look fairly excellent when shot outside in good lighting. Live Focus is also supported by the front and back cameras, allowing you to change the bokeh effect in real time. The blur effect appears more natural to us when the slider is adjusted to roughly level 2 or 3.

A 32MP f/2.2 sensor on the front camera captures bright and crisp selfies in daylight. While the selfie camera can catch realistic colours and details, it has a tendency to smooth out face characteristics, which is a problem that most Samsung phones have. Even with the beauty effect turned off, there is some softening, which will become more pronounced as the sun sets.

Performance and software

The Galaxy A71's performance has been improved thanks to the Snapdragon 730 SoC at the helm. This is an octa-core CPU with a clock speed of 2.2GHz and an extremely efficient 8nm manufacturing technique. This mid-range processor is essentially equivalent to the Snapdragon 730G chipset and is noted for its performance. Qualcomm introduced the latter to provide a modest boost in gaming performance. On the Galaxy A71, the Snapdragon 730 processor is teamed with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

The Samsung Galaxy A71 seems speedy and fluid right out of the box while exploring the UI, opening apps, and scrolling through web sites. During our testing, there were no lags or crashes. The smartphone performs admirably in everyday chores and is also capable of running graphically demanding games such as PUBG and Call of Duty Mobile on high graphics settings. These games not only run smoothly, but they also look fantastic on the huge AMOLED display.

In terms of software, the Galaxy A71 runs One UI 2.0, which is based on Android 10. The software has a simple, user-friendly interface that is suitable for both young and old users. The general user interface is simple to use, and it includes features such as Samsung Pay, Always On display, and dark mode, among others. However, the phone comes with bloatware in the form of preloaded apps such as, Snapchat, Helo, DailyHunt, and others, which might occasionally send out spammy notifications.

When it comes to the performance of the in-display fingerprint sensor, we found it to be mostly accurate and quick at reading and unlocking the smartphone. Face unlock is also included, however it is slow and unreliable in low-light situations. If the volume of the single bottom-firing speaker isn't adjusted to its utmost, it can be unimpressive. The sound is fairly clear at its maximum volume, however it can get a touch pitchy.


The Samsung Galaxy A71, like the Galaxy A70s and Galaxy A70 before it, has a 4,500mAh battery. The battery life of the previous two versions surprised us, and the Galaxy A71 does not disappoint. On ordinary to above average usage, the phone comfortably lasts well over a full day. The smartphone will survive a whole day on days with high usage, such as playing graphically taxing games and streaming films.

The Samsung Galaxy A71 performed admirably in our PCMark battery drain test, lasting around 11 and a half hours from 100% to 20%. The phone comes with a 25W charger that charges the phone from zero to 100 percent in around 90 minutes.


The Samsung Galaxy A71 begins at Rs. 25,499 in India. As of Sep 26, 2021, it is available for the lowest price on Croma in India.

The Samsung Galaxy A71, as previously said, is a worthy successor to the Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A70s smartphones. The outside is virtually unchanged, which is wonderful because you get a huge and appealing Super AMOLED display as well as a streamlined design. The most significant changes are under the hood, where Samsung has changed the processor to a speedy and efficient Snapdragon 730 SoC, which comes preloaded with Android 10.

The Samsung Galaxy A71's camera may not be the greatest in this sector, and its features aren't as impressive as those found on phones like the Realme X2 Pro and Redmi K20 Pro. That said, the Galaxy A71 is a phone on which you can enjoy watching movies and playing games without worrying about performance or battery life.
