Galaxy A71 vs S10 Lite: cost benefit compensates for lower power? |...

The category of intermediaries covers a huge amount of mobile phones that can vary greatly in prices. Within this large area, we have premium intermediaries, which offer enough performance so you don’t need a top of the line for most things.

Two of the dozens of handsets that Samsung has launched lately draw attention in this regard. The Galaxy A71 brings the look of the Galaxy S20 line, while the Galaxy S10 Lite brings features from last year’s top.

One has more cameras, the other more processing, what is more important to you? Do these things make a difference? If you are interested, follow this comparison here in the TudoCelular.com.

Design

Samsung Galaxy A71

From the front, very similar cell phones. On your back, too. Following the most premium trends of the year, Samsung ended up leaving our rivals very similar, and one of the few differentials is the fact that the edges of the S10 Lite are slightly thinner, making it more elegant.

The camera module, rectangular and large, housing the cameras in L, is slightly smaller on the A71, but the two have full glossy plastic finish and pretty much the same measurements and weight. The visual finish is beautiful in both, with the diamond pattern on the A71 and holographic on the S10 Lite, but the latter comes out in front by having the metal frames, while the A71 is all plastic.

Neither of them have protection on the body, the display is straight and the notch is the same for both, a hole in the center of the top. The corners are all rounded and they bring the biometric sensor below the screen, the S10 Lite being the fastest and most accurate.

The A71 has the advantage of being dual SIM like the S10 Lite, but has a slot for each of the chips and for the microSD, while its competitor is hybrid.

The point for the S10 Lite opens the score here.

Screen

If the body is similar, you can not get away too much on the display. Are two super AMOLED Plus 6.4-inch screens with FullHD+ definition, bringing virtually the same body screen ratio of 87%, 20:9 aspect and Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

However, in the finer analysis, the S10 Lite comes out in front, with quality closer to the top of the line compared to the A71. Both have good brightness and color balance, but the S10 Lite is even brighter and has excellent viewing angle.

In addition, it brings hdr10+ support, useful to check with more utilization HDR content from platforms such as YouTube and Netflix.

They may be the same on paper, but the point is the higher quality of the Galaxy S10 Lite.

Sound

Galaxy A71 vs S10 Lite: cost benefit compensates for lower power? |...

In sound, things reverse. The S10 Lite doesn’t have one of the worst audios ever seen, but because it’s more expensive the expectations about it are higher. The A71 is a good smartphone for music, has high volume that distorts little, unlike the S10 Lite.

Both are mono, and although the quality of the S10 Lite is interesting, it has almost non-existent bass. When it comes to headphones, it’s on the A71 that you should pay attention if you want a P2 connection, as it’s the only one here that has retained this feature.

The design of the headphones is the same for both, being white on the A71 and black on the S10 Lite. They are in-ear, comfortable and have decent quality. The S10 Lite is USB-C and avoids the use of adapters, and the two bring Dolby Atmos technology to improve audio, although it is not very useful.

This point is left with the Galaxy A71.

System

Galaxy A71 vs S10 Lite: cost benefit compensates for lower power? |...

There is little to talk about system if you already know the interface of Samsung. In the latest version, the two bring Android 10 into the box and must have at least one more guaranteed update each.

OneUI is in version 2, and is an interface with many functions and adjustments to customize the device, including the night mode to make the system dark and more pleasing to the eye.

Another interesting function, inherited from the brand’s most expensive devices is the Edge Screen, shortcuts that are hidden on the side of the screen and are available with a finger drag. They are identical and interesting interfaces for those who like to have a lot to mess with and functions that go beyond the simplest Android.

In connections they will also bring the best to the user. Both feature dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and NFC. The only difference is for fm radio, present only on the A71, which is also the only one with P2 connection.

They are almost the same, so the small difference of fm radio gives the point to the A71.

Performance


Galaxy A71 vs S10 Lite: cost benefit compensates for lower power? |...

We have here one of the biggest differences between these two cell phones. While the A71 has intermediate processing set, with Snapdragon 730, the S10 Lite inherits from the older brother (international, to the delight of many) the Snapdragon 855. In the rest, they share the same 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, with expansion via microSD.

Translating that into numbers, what does it mean? In benchmarks such as AnTuTu the difference between the S10 Lite and the A71 is brutal and exceeds 220,000 points, more than 50%. In our standardized app opening tests, the gap drops a lot, and the nearly 59 seconds achieved by S10 Lite are only 13% faster than those of the A71.

Comparing the A71 to the A70 and the S10 Lite to the S10 Plus, they are pretty much the same thing in yield. For games, the two do not disappoint those who enjoy heavier titles, and run without choking up those that require better graphics and fluidity. The S10 Lite will have better graphics but, like its brother Plus, reduces the fps of some games when it starts to heat up.

The processing point is the Galaxy S10 Lite.

Battery


Galaxy A71 vs S10 Lite: cost benefit compensates for lower power? |...

One more item in which, at least in theory, our competitors are equal. Both bring 4,500 mAh of battery, a reasonable number for their hardware and screen set.

In practice, in our full tests, the Galaxy S10 Lite gets the better of it. That’s 23 hours total versus 20 hours on the A71, and two more hours of screen. These are relevant numbers. On recharging, the 25W charger is the same for both, but recharges the S10 Lite in just over an hour, versus almost an hour and a half from the A71. None of them have wireless charging.

One more point for the Galaxy S10 Lite.

Cmeras, New Year

If there’s one thing the Galaxy A71 has more than its rival it’s camera. It’s four against three, with the extra of a depth sensor for the A71. Check:

  • Galaxy A71: a main wide of 64 megapixels, f/1.8 aperture and PDAF; an ultra wide of 12 megapixels; a 5 megapixel macro and a 5 megapixel depth sensor.
  • Galaxy S10 Lite: a 48 megapixel main wide, f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and OIS; an ultra wide of 12 megapixels and a 5 megapixel macro.

Overall, the Galaxy A71 managed to do better than the S10 Lite, which even with better processor does not bring so many megapixels and low aperture. In external situations, the A71 brought more vividness and more detail to the images. In some situations the S10 Lite brings more light, but also brings more noise.

Both have night mode, and the Galaxy A71 uses this feature much smarter, resulting in good improvements and gaining detail in the images. Once again, the S10 Lite ends up bringing more noise to the photos.

The macro is the same for both and does a good job on both devices when respected the fixed focus of 5 centimeters. The ultrawide is also decent in them, and makes images with more intense colors on the S10 Lite, and with less difference to the main sensor on the A71.

Finally, the extra sensor on the A71, deep, does not make so much difference, because even the S10 Lite, only in the software, can make good clippings.

It’s a well-deserved point for the Galaxy A71.

For videos, we have two good smartphones that record in 4K quality, although only the S10 Lite does this at 60 fps. Both also have Super Steady OIS technology, which greatly reduces the shakes of…
