Samsung Galaxy A70


Samsung has long sold its phone lines on the prestige of its Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines, with the mid and budget range offerings covering a bewildering array of "A" and "J" series handsets.

That has changed in 2019, with all of Samsung's less-than-flagship phones coming under the A series banner. The Samsung Galaxy A70 is effectively its mid-range "flagship", but it's one that delivers a surprisingly large range of features that you'll find on its actual flagships at a much more pleasing price.

There's stiff competition in the mid-range from the likes of Google, Huawei and Oppo, but the Galaxy A70 holds its own very nicely, especially if you prefer a larger handset.

Design

  • 6.7-inch AMOLED display is a stunner at this price
  • Teardrop notch rather than a hole punch
  • Fingerprint sensor lacks precision
  • Headphone jack still present
  • No in-built Bixby button

Camera
