Galaxy A71 camera review: can a home sensor 64MP make enough difference?

Launched at the end of 2019 with Galaxy A51 “brother”, Galaxy A71 is proving that it is one of the most affordable mid-range smartphones in the segment of 10 million VND. The reason comes from the unique feature series that Samsung integrated for its Galaxy A-series product line. These features are suitable and meet the needs of most users, from performance, camera or battery life.

Speaking of cameras, the Galaxy A71 also has the same 4 main camera clusters as the Galaxy A51, but it has been upgraded a bit on the main camera parameters to provide a better user experience. In the framework of this article, we will evaluate the details of the Galaxy A71 camera, see if in the price segment of 10 million, the camera performance on the Galaxy A71 is superior?

Detailed specifications of the Galaxy A71 camera:

– 64MP: Wide-angle main camera, F / 1.8, 26mm conversion focal length

– 12MP: Super wide angle camera, F / 2.2, focal length converted to 12mm

– 5MP: Macro camera, F / 2.4, focal length of 25mm

– 5MP: Depth camera, F / 2.2

– 32MP: Camera selfie, F / 2.2, focal length conversion 26mm

Full light conditions

Although the main camera of the Galaxy A71 has a resolution of 64MP, using sensors manufactured by Samsung itself, however, in normal shooting mode, like many devices with other 48MP or 64MP cameras on the market, the cameras of Galaxy A71 will not capture at this large resolution, but will interpolate 4 pixels to produce the best 16MP resolution picture.

Try taking photos with Galaxy A71 in daylight conditions, photos from the main camera of the machine is quite good quality. The reproduced colors tend to be a bit more vibrant than they actually are. This is common with Samsung Galaxy devices. The device handles fairly bright and dark areas well.

Readers can see some photos taken from the main camera of the machine below.

However, to get the best picture quality, we recommend that users take photos in clear, sunny weather. With some gloomy weather like Hanoi in the past week, the photos will be a bit dark and less colorful, affecting pretty much the image quality.

Besides the normal 64MP primary camera, Samsung also equipped the Galaxy A71 with an ultra-wide angle camera with 12MP resolution. This ultra wide-angle camera has a focal length of 12mm on the Full Frame camera system, which is for extremely wide viewing angles. In terms of quality, in general, the ultra-wide-angle camera of the Galaxy A71 produces images at a relatively good quality, not as beautiful as the regular camera.

Corner cameras are often compared to the ultra-wide angle cameras on the Galaxy A71

As we can see, the ultra-wide angle shot from the Galaxy A71’s 12MP camera can cover a great deal of space around you. However, in some cases, the colors and the Dynamic Range between the two cameras (regular and super wide) differ markedly because the ultra wide-angle camera is not focused on quality by Samsung.

So we also recommend that if you want a quality wide-angle camera image, you should only shoot in some conditions that are bright enough ideal, and post-editing to get the best “virtual life” photo.

Two bright spots of the camera on Galaxy A71: 64MP and macro

As mentioned above, the Galaxy A71 is equipped with a cluster of 4 main cameras, which include 1 camera with 64MP sensor and 1 separate 5MP macro camera. And although it is not the first time Samsung smartphones have been equipped with 64MP cameras as well as macro cameras, these two cameras on the Galaxy A71 are rated as two of the most prominent.

With 64MP camera, users will need to perform a few operations to be able to activate and start shooting with this high resolution mode, by default Galaxy A71 will only shoot in 16MP mode only.

To switch to 64MP shooting mode, users need to select the image ratio icon (default is 3: 4), then switch to 3: 4H mode

Here are some photos we took at high resolution of 64MP.

Although the results are quite impressive, however, in real terms, if for basic users, photos taken from 64MP camera in both 16MP and 64MP modes do not differ too much and hard to recognize without zooming in close. And if only to post photos on social networks, we recommend that users should only shoot in 16MP mode, because when shooting 64MP, the image gives a very heavy capacity, from 15 – 30MB, taking up quite a lot of memory. So if you do not really need super high resolution, just shoot in normal auto mode.

Photos taken in 64MP mode have up to 9248 x 6936 resolution, from 15-30MB / image

That’s about 64MP cameras, what about macro cameras? In fact, the macro camera on the Galaxy A71 is not much different from the macro camera on the Galaxy A51. Both have 5MP resolution and have a focal length of 25mm on the Full Frame system. If you have viewed the macro shots from the Galaxy A51, the Galaxy A71 will also capture the same.

Of course, due to some limitations of the macro camera on the Galaxy A71 (low resolution, fixed focus range, color not bright …), users need to apply a bit of creativity and need an extra number of accessories such as tripod, LED lighting … to make the macro photo look better and more emotional.

Portrait and selfie

Although not equipped with a telephoto camera as on many smartphones in the same segment, however, the Galaxy A71 is still equipped with Samsung for capturing portrait photos (Live Focus) quite well. The camera of the device will also come with unique font removal effects similar to high-end Galaxy models.

Regarding selfie mode, the selfie camera of Galaxy A71 has a quite large resolution up to 32MP, accompanied with available beauty modes, the device will meet most of the needs of “selfies” of women. .

Difficult conditions: Underexposed

This is also the “hardcore” shooting condition for not only the Galaxy A71 but also a challenge for current high-end smartphone models. With the camera with a large aperture of F / 1.8, the low-light photo of the Galaxy A71 is somewhat improved, as well as thanks to most of Samsung’s image processing algorithms.

Experimental low light photography in all 3 modes Auto, 64MP and night mode separately, photos produce quite unexpected results.

In both cases, when comparing a scene in 64MP mode and the basic auto mode, photos taken in high-resolution 64MP mode always produce a sharper image as well as a little more detail. However, when zoomed in on every detail, the image is still blurred because the device has to eliminate much noise, this is the general condition of the current smartphone due to technological limitations and we can accept it.

However, when using a separate night mode, in the first photo, the result is quite satisfactory when the image is not too harsh and still retain good details, but to the second image, night mode is not produces positive results when the details are worse and less sharp than photos taken in normal mode.

In night mode, the camera takes about 5 seconds to be able to capture images by having to capture multiple frames and then use AI to combine to produce the final image with minimal noise. Therefore, users need to hold their hands well and limit the capture of moving objects, because it can make the image become worse (as in the case of 2).

Conclusion

Overall, with a mid-range device in the 10 million dong segment like the Galaxy A71, users cannot ask for too much of an impressive camera performance like Samsung’s flagships (Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note10). However, if compared to some other products in the same segment, as well as based on other outstanding features, the Galaxy A71 still provides a sufficient camera quality in most cases.

Galaxy A71 has a good enough camera in the price range, suitable for the majority of common users

Indeed, good photos do not depend much on the device but on the photographer himself. If you know how to manipulate the creativity and things available around, Galaxy A71 can completely create great photos that do not have to be “genuine” to do.
