  • Here is a Samsung Galaxy A71 5G review in a pros and cons format to help you decide whether to buy one.

The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G is one of Samsung’s latest mid-range smartphones that has some solid specifications at an affordable price. But you would not be able to tell that it was a cheaper device when you look at the specifications of the display, camera, and battery life (more on that below):

Pro: Fair Price 

The Samsung Galaxy A71 is priced at $549.99, but you will be able to periodically find an even better deal for the device.

Pro: Superior Camera

The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G has a quad-camera array: 64-megapixel (main), 12-megapixel (ultra-wide), 5-megapixel (macro), and 5-megapixel (depth). And the front-facing camera is 32-megapixel so your selfies game will be strong.

There are several camera features to drastically improve your photos. Live Focus enables  you to adjust the background blur before and after you take photos. And there is a flaw detection feature to help prevent blemishes and flaws from appearing in your photos. Plus the camera can take high-quality photos even in lowlight conditions.

Pro: Powerful Display

The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G features a 6.7-inch edge-to-edge Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O display. The display is rich and bright enough to make watching videos and playing games feel like an immersive experience.

There is an optical fingerprint scanner underneath the glass. This makes it easier to unlock the device and authorize transactions.

Pro: Solid Battery Life

The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G has a 4,500 mAh battery capacity and features 25W charging. With this battery capacity, you can stream and connect at 5G speeds all day.

Pro: Higher Storage And RAM

The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G features 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage. And the Galaxy A71 5G storage can be expanded up to 1TB. With the high amount of internal and expandable storage, you can store plenty of music, photos, and videos.

Con: Older Chipset

In order to cut costs, the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G does not feature a higher-end processor. Instead, it has a Snapdragon 765G, which is still powerful enough to handle graphic-intensive games.

Con: No Wireless Charging

The Galaxy A71 5G does not come with built-in wireless charging. So those of you who have a wireless charger lying around the house will be out of luck there.

Pulse 2.0 Score

The Galaxy A71 5G has received a Pulse 2.0 score of 4.5 out of 5. The pros definitely outweigh the cons here.
