It could just be me, but I’m of the belief that if someone goes to buy a Samsung Galaxy phone, they go for a Galaxy S-range. Something like the Galaxy S10. However, today I got chance to use the Samsung Galaxy A70 and, I have to say, it’s really rather good.
My initial thoughts were just how much it looked like the new Xiaomi Mi 9 and just how good the screen looked. It’s a thin and well designed phone which made me think, “Hang on, why aren’t more people looking at the Samsung A-range phones?
The Samsung Galaxy A70 comes with a 6.7″ FHD+ (1080×2400) Super AMOLED Infinity display which has a 20:9 display ratio. There’s a 32 megapixel camera (f1.7), a wide 8 megapixel camera, 5 megapixel depth sensor plus AI to detect up to 20 scenes. The front camera, which sits in a dewdrop notch, is a 32 megapixel (f2.0) unit.
Powered by Android 9.0 (Pie) it’s powered by an octa-core (dual 2.0GHz + six 1.7GHz) CPU. This particular one is on EE and there’s 8GB of RAM plus 128GB of built-in storage with a microSD card too.
The rear of the phone has a really nice reflective finish which looks fantastic in the light. You will need to look for a cover though. Preferably a see-through one so you can appreciate that rear panel.
Perhaps the best part of this phone is the fact that it’s cheap. The A70 can be picked up on a number of different networks for a low monthly price or you can buy one out-right for just £369 from the likes of Carphone Warehouse.
I must say. Really nice this.
