We tell you our first impressions about the Samsung Galaxy A70. One of the new Samsung smartphones with three cameras and an OLED screen at a very affordable price.
The Samsung Galaxy A70 is a mid-range phone at a good price with good specifications. It has an AMOLED screen of 6.7 inches. Something incredible for the price it has, leaving other phones with similar prices wrong.
The triple cameras also impress. While the expandable storage of 128 GB shows that the most outstanding features can be obtained for much less money than other devices require.
Review Samsung Galaxy A70:
The Samsung Galaxy A70 is a good mid-range phone that can be purchased for $399 that differs from the A80 for cameras and specifications.
With a large and striking screen, a headphone jack and tons of RAM and storage, this triple-camera phone could be one of the best midrange phones on the market.

Samsung Galaxy A70 Review Verdict:
Samsung Galaxy A70

Design of the Galaxy A70
Although it is possible that the A70 does not win any design prize, it is more expensive than the price suggests (the reflections of our photos under the light are more visible to the camera than to the naked eye).
Unfortunately, Samsung describes the material on the back as “glass tic” (glass and plastic in English, that is, glass and plastic). This means that it is made of plastic, but that it has some glass. Which is why the fingerprints remain when you pick it up.
As for the finishes, it is available in black, white, blue and coral.
A great victory is the AMOLED screen of 6.7 in 1080p. You may not be able to find a better one on a smartphone at this price. Samsung makes the best OLED displays and the screen on the Galaxy A70 is ridiculously good.
The three cameras on the back of the A70 do not move from one side to the other to take selections like the A80, but they seem to be pretty good in their own right.
They have a 32Mp main sensor paired with an 8Mp wide-angle and a 5Mp depth sensor.
This means that you can shoot in portrait mode, although we found that in low light conditions the results were quite blurry (automatic mode worked better).
However, that wide-angle lens is fantastic to be in a mid-range phone and shows that Samsung is willing to take the functions of its high-end S10 to cheaper phones (even if the hardware and parts are not so good ones).
The front camera has a generous 32Mp and is housed in a tear-shaped notch at the top of the screen.
