Hi, question, the slider for the brightness is all the way down at the drop down menu, not on top like most Samsung phones. I don't see an option to put it on top of the page. Am I missing something? Thanks.
diven, 11 Jun 2020does it has sensor to control tv or ac ? A71 ?No, it doesn't have an IR sensor.
TheMan, 11 Jun 2020Guys Please what do you understand as the meaning of these Samsung Galaxy A71 Cons? ---The s... moreHDR 10 screens in phones mean the phone can display a wider dynamic range in its 6.7" amoled screen. It really doesn't make much of a difference to small phone screens. It's something you'd want though in a 65" or bigger screen TV. As for the macro camera (macro = close up shots of flowers, insects and other things), it just means that the performance is ordinary, average, soso or mediocre. You shouldn't expect beautiful macro/close up shots. You're better of using the main camera at 64 megapixels, then crop the photo rather than use the dedicated macro camera.
Please what do you understand as the meaning of these Samsung Galaxy A71 Cons?
---The screen is not HDR10-compliant
---The macro camera is limiting and uninspiring in quality
Socks, 11 Jun 2020Have you removed the built in screen-protector?Yes.changed its and replace a new good screen protector
It seems that my A71 screen is made up of several pieces under the sunlight, when the phone is off.Let me be more precise.When I lock the phone screen, if I look closely at the screen, I will notice that the screen looks like it consists of 5 small sections.In fact, a single plate is made up of several small plates that are glued together.
Is that the same for you?
Help me please
TheMan, 10 Jun 2020I recently ordered for Samsung A71 after much research and I'm earnestly waiting for its arriv... moreIt's better than the Oppo A5 for sure. It's got a bigger, more immersive screen amoled screen, a faster processor, front underscreen fingerprint reader, faster charging, widevine L1 certification, better camera setup including selfie and much better software (OneUI) which allows invisible hotspot, manual LTE band selection and many other things te Oppo A5 doesn't offer. However, the A71 is significantly more expensive.
I recently ordered for Samsung A71 after much research and I'm earnestly waiting for its arrival, I pray mine performs good cause I'm dropping my A5 for it.. Lol!
Socks, 08 Jun 2020Galaxy A71 has a better camera and better SoC, better ram and a better design overall.Samsung is a better brand
AhmedDZ, 09 Jun 2020I bought recently the A71 based on GSMArena tests, however i am so disapointed in terms of Cam... moreYou can choose the jpeg resolution in the A71. There's a 4:3 (16MP), 4:3 (64MP), 16:9, 1:1 and full screen (20:9). As for manual/'pro' mode, the A71 maxes out at ISO 800 and has no manual focus or manual shutter speed in the default camera app.
Download open camera app and enable camera2api to be able to do manual focus, manual shutter speed up to 1/5sec (longest) and manual ISO up to ISO 941 in photography. It can also record 4K videos with manual settings which the default camera app can't do. Unfortunately, it doesn't support 64megapixels and Samsung doesn't provide the app access to the real RAW/DNG file. All you get is fake RAW/DNG.
If you still can't get proper exposure in very dark scenes, sideload GCam app and use it.
Now if you're really serious into smartphone photography, demanding better photos and videos than what the A71 can offer, and with better manual contols, go for Xiaomi phones.
The A71 is more of a multi featured phone for all your needs. It's better than others in some areas, but not better in other areas. As I said in previous posts, its 'PRO' camera mode is really a joke.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2020Umm are you talking about the A71 or something elseWas talking about Huawei Nova 5T which the original poster said was cheaper and better than the A71.
Supra, 09 Jun 2020I need help. How to turn off vibrate in social media apps? I could not find vibration intensit... moreYou can turn off the vibrate for social media in the app settings. For example, to turn off the vibrate for facebook messenger, you have to go to the app's settings > notification and sound then click manage notification (this will show you the system setting of the app). Then you have to turn off the vibrate per notification, for example, you only want to turn off the vibrate for chats and calls, then click that option then look for vibrate. Should you want to turn it off for all types of notification, you have to do it one by one per event. Hope this helps.
I bought recently the A71 based on GSMArena tests, however i am so disapointed in terms of Camera,
i had a sony xperia Z5 premium with 23 MP is much better than the 64 MP, the camera sharpeness is so bad compared to the high resolution of 64 MP.
also you can not choose the resolution for your photos, while in sony i had this option and more, such as the iso can go up to 1600 while samsung it is only 800.
i do not recomend the sony xperia Z5 premium, because of two things, IT GET'S SO HOT, and the battery, also the screen is fragile, i broke it 4 times
always by comparing it to the sony, the one i had was streo while the samsung is not a better sound, not so louad
the A71 phone doens't get hot like i used to experience with the Sony and the battery is good and very fast charging, gaming is good too
