The gorgeous Samsung Galaxy A71 is the more affordable model of the two, donning an official price tag of PHP 22,990. This device, which is targeted towards young and active content creators, builds upon the strong selling points of its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy A70 from 2019.

For those who are eyeing this release, Samsung Galaxy A71 comes in this plain white box with the image the device printed on top. Inside you will find the unit itself, the Travel Charger supporting 3A output, Earphones with In-Ear Silicone Buds, USB Type C to USB charging cable, Quick Start Guide, Warranty Certificate, SIM Card Tray Ejector Pin, and Soft Gel Case.

One of the strongest selling points of Samsung Galaxy A17 is its Quad Rear Camera Module that gives budding mobile photographers or video content creators great flexibility when capturing images in various conditions or situations.

This imaging set-up is made up of the following shooters:

1. 64 MegaPixels, f/1.8 Aperture, 26mm Wide, 1/1.7" Sensor Size, 0.8µm, PDAF, HDR

This is the best of the bunch when it comes to resolution, wideness of aperture, and sensor size, which gives it superiority when snapping photos even in low light conditions. I would say this is also the best when it comes to everyday point and shoot photography.

This main camera can also be used for recording videos at videos at up to 4K resolution at 30 frames per second and even slow-mo FullHD clips at a whopping 960 fps! The smartphone also comes with 1080p Super Steady Mode for videos, which is handy for vlogging on the go.

2. 12 MegaPixels, f/2.2, 12mm Ultra-Wide Lens, HDR

If you love taking landscape or architectural photos, you will find this one very handy. This camera is also useful when shooting large groups of people without having to move several steps back just to make sure that everyone is the frame.

3. 5 MegaPixels, f/2.4, 25mm, Dedicated Macro Camera

This camera is great for capturing photos of small objects like insects or even minute or intricate details on a larger object. What's good is that it has higher resolution than most macro cameras on other midrange Android handsets.

4. 5 MegaPixels, f/2.2, 1/5.0", 1.12µm, Depth Sensor

Add bokeh or slight blur to the background of your subjects using Samsung Galaxy A71's Live Focus mode, which is enabled by this fourth camera.

In front, this handset has a 32 MegaPixel front-facing camera housed in a punch hole on top of the 6.7-inch FullHD+ Infinity O Super AMOLED Plus display. This snapper is powered by Samsung's own beautification software that delivers selfies that are are instantly ready for sharing on social media. Young vloggers can also use it to record videos at up to 4K 30 frames per second for clarity and future-proofing.

The screen, for me, is one of the most attractive features of this model. The symmetric punch-hole placement and the ultra-thin bezels truly make it a sight to behold. The brilliant hues and crisp details delivered by the Super AMOLED Plus panel provide an enjoyable viewing experience when watching videos, playing games, reading blogs, or even when just browsing social media apps.

Also, the beautiful display perfectly complements the sleek and eye-catching high-gloss back panel with classy iridescent sheen and unique laminated patterns. The front, rear, and sides of this handset come together in a balanced manner that makes the overall package a true head-turner.

Under the hood, Samsung Galaxy A71 runs its One UI 2 customized Android 10 operating system with a powerful and energy-efficient 8nm 2.2 GHz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset that incorporates an Adreno 618 GPU for smooth gaming and overall touch experience.

In the official Philippine version of this smartphone, the processor is complemented by 8GB of RAM for hiccup-free multi-tasking and 128GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage that can easily be augmented using the dedicated microSD card slot; No need to sacrifice Dual SIM capability to get more space for your large files.

One of the most useful features of Samsung Galaxy A71 is its very large 4,500 mAh Li-Po battery that even supports 25W fast charging through the USB Type C port. This pack should be huge enough to deliver more than a whole day of uptime for most consumers -- especially when we consumer the energy-efficiency of the AMOLED display and the Snapdragon 730 processor.

Actually, for a device that has such a sizable battery, I am surprised that this handset only measures 7.7 millimeters at its thickest point and just weights 179 grams. It's not bulky nor hefty and that makes it a joy to keep in the pocket or in a sling bag.
