Galaxy A71 phone cameras have been tested by the DxOMark team that specializes in smartphone camera testing and has average results
He obtained a total score of 84 points.
This phone can be compared to the Galaxy A50 which was launched last year in addition to other medium phones such as Moto One Zoom and Nokia 7.a
Except that these two phones are offered for sale at cheaper prices.
The 64-megapixel primary camera provides an impressive dynamic range, which overcomes the likes of iPhone 11 and Google Pixel 3a. This camera mostly displays colors well even though the white balance tends to blue.
Although this camera uses a high-resolution sensor
the images captured on the phone do not contain all the details.
The large sensor used in this camera needs to lower the shutter speed slightly in the dark. Images taken in low-light environments still appear dimmed
The autofocus was also far from perfect.
The camera configuration is impressive, too,
with a quad-sensor setup on the rear that includes standard wide and ultra-wide cameras,
as well as dedicated sensors for macro shots and depth sensing. The primary camera features a 64MP 1/1.72-inch sensor with 0.8µm pixels linked to a 26mm-equivalent f/1.8-aperture lens,
with the second ultra-wide camera offering a 12MP sensor and 12mm f/2.2-aperture lens. For close-up photography,
the macro camera uses a 5MP 1/5.0-inch sensor with 1.12µm pixels and a 25mm f/2.4-aperture lens.
A 5MP sensor with an f/2.2-aperture lens provides depth estimation for blurring the background on bokeh shots.
For smartphone video enthusiasts
the Samsung Galaxy A71 captures 4K footage at 30fps, with higher frame rates of 240fps and 960fps available
when dropping the resolution down to Full HD 1080p capture.
A gyroscope-based Electronic Image Stabilization System (gyro-EIS) promises smoother playback on static handheld videos,
as well as those captured with walking or panning actions.
Let’s see how the Samsung Galaxy A71’s camera performed in our image quality analysis.
Key camera specifications:
- Quad camera setup
- Primary: 64MP 1/1.72-inch sensor with 0.8µm pixels and 26mm f/1.8-aperture lens
- Ultra-wide: 12MP sensor with 12mm f/2.2-aperture lens
- Macro: 5MP 1/5.0-inch sensor with 1.12µm pixels and 25mm f/2.4-aperture lens

- 4K 2160p/30fps video
We used a Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro for some comparison shots in this review. This device is labeled Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro on the device body and packaging. However,
in both the Android settings and in the camera EXIF data,
the device name is listed as Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro,
thus indicating that both phones are identical.
About DXOMARK Camera tests:
For scoring and analysis in our smartphone camera reviews,
DXOMARK engineers capture and evaluate over 1600 test images and more than 2 hours of video both in controlled lab environments and in natural indoor and outdoor scenes,
using the camera’s default settings.
This article is designed to highlight the most important results of our testing. For more information about the DXOMARK Camera test protocol,
the Samsung Galaxy A71 camera with four sensors failed the test.
Experts rated it only 84 points. To make it clear:
the first place in the DxOMark ranking is held by the Huawei P40 Pro with 128 points. Above the A71, we even find last year’s Samsung Galaxy A50.
Experts noted that they did not expect good results from a mid-range Samsung smartphone. The device’s camera can produce good shots in good light,
take images with a high dynamic range and rich colors. However,
the pictures are poorly detailed and the low light autofocus is constantly confused. In addition, the quality of night photos is just below average.
