Samsung Galaxy A70s Video Reviews
Korean Tech Giant Samsung has yet again introduced another mid-range device, the Samsung Galaxy A70s. This phone is an improvement of the Galaxy A70, a smartphone that was launched earlier this year. It is an attractive phone just like its predecessor, and it is better in the camera department. Other highlights of the A70s include a massive battery that can power it for days, super-fast charging support and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Samsung Galaxy A70s design and display
This phone has the same design as the Samsung A70. There is nothing out of the ordinary and everything is pretty much the same. It has a smooth plastic back panel that is reflective like glass. You might think the back is glass when you look at it from a distance.
At the back, there is the triple-lens camera module, an LED flash, and Samsung branding. Just like its predecessor, the fingerprint scanner is on-display. The dimensions of this smartphone are 164.3 x 76.7 x 7.9 mm and it weighs 187 grams. This makes it an easy phone to hold and use in one hand despite the fact that it has a large display.
Samsung Galaxy A70s comes with a 6.7-inch display with a waterdrop notch. This has become the normal design in 2019. However, some people argue that it would have been better if Samsung used the sliding camera mechanism in this camera, like that used in the Oppo F11 Pro or Samsung Galaxy A80.
The 6.7-inch display is Super AMOLED and has a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2400 pixels and 393 PPI density. Super AMOLED displays are known for giving clear images with deep blacks. It is protected from accidental drops and scratches by Corning Gorilla Glass.
Hardware, software, and performance
At the heart of Galaxy A70s is Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SOC (11nm) with an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz. Graphics are handled by Adreno 612. This smartphone has 6GB of RAM. If you love gaming, you should expect to play your favorite games on this phone without any issues.
Android 9.0 Pie powers this device. The Android operating system is customized by One UI.
The on-board storage space is 128GB. If you think this space won’t be enough, you can get more storage via the microSD slot – up to 1TB.
Samsung Galaxy A70s Cameras
Camera configuration is one of the key selling points of the Samsung A70s. This phone is equipped with a triple-lens camera at the back made up of a 64 megapixels main lens, a 5 megapixels depth sensor, and 8 megapixels ultra-wide lens. This camera allows you to shoot 4K videos.
The front camera is impressive too. The front lens is 32 megapixels and is perfect for selfies and video calls. This camera can shoot full HD videos and has HDR mode.
Battery and extras
Another selling point of the Galaxy A70s is its 4500mAh battery. This battery can easily power this device through a full day of normal use on a single charge. Furthermore, it supports 25W fast charging.
