Samsung Galaxy A71 Review Rundown
The Samsung Galaxy A71 offers a big edge-to-edge display with a hole-punch cutout for the front-facing camera, as well as a rectangular camera bump on the back. The phone is powered by a 4,500mAh battery that will get even the most demanding user through the day. We expect the phone to get at least a year of major updates, so hopefully it'll make it to Android 11.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G is the most expensive device in the Galaxy A-series. It has an edge-to-edge display with a hole-punch cutout for the front-facing camera. Thanks to the plastic back, the phones feels very lightweight. The phone will beat the Snapdragon 730-equipped Google Pixel 4a in raw performance.
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The $599.99 Galaxy A71 5G is flat in the front, with a curved plastic back panel. AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and unlocked versions of the phone support sub-6GHz 5G. On the back, the phone sports a 64MP primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 5MP macro lens.
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy A71 is one of four new phones Samsung unveiled at CES 2020. It will be on sale in the UK from 7 February, but pricing is still unconfirmed. It has the same display, battery, and storage as the S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite, with a camera setup that's comparable - and arguably better - all for a likely lower price.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy A71 is aimed more at the TikTok generation. It uses Samsung's Infinity-O screen technology and has a 6.7-inch display. The front-facing, 32MP snapper produces high quality shots, even in awkward lighting. Round the back and the Samsung A71 packs four cameras offering a 64MP f/1.8 sensor. You can fit more of your surroundings into a shot by tapping an icon on the screen to switch to the 123 degree, 12MP ultra-wide camera.
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G costs $599 — so long as you buy it unlocked or through AT&T, T-Mobile or US Cellular. It features one of Samsung's Super AMOLED panels, with a full-HD resolution spanning 6.7 inches. The A71 does not support wireless charging, which is a bit surprising given that this phone only costs $100 less than the iPhone 11.
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy A71 has a large 6.7-inch display and a 64MP main camera. The phone is unashamedly plastic and feels cheap and cheerful. There's no wireless charging, no IP rating and Samsung couldn't confirm whether the display would support HDR content. In the UK the A71 will cost £419 when it launches in Q1 2020.
