Summary: The Samsung Galaxy A70 is a neat-looking phone with the excellent build quality. OneUI software has good aesthetics and design as well. What we liked the most is the phone’s stunning OLED screen, which is ideal for content consumption. The selfie camera is good and so is the battery life. However, it has its own share of issues. The fingerprint sensor implementation is poor. The rear cameras lack night mode and any kind of video stabilization. The wide-angle shots don’t come out well due to the excessive barrel distortion. All things considered, Vivo’s V15 Pro is a more balanced choice. It comes with a more stylish design, a full-screen OLED screen, and much better cameras. However, it comes with its own share of fault in the form of Funtouch OS, which is a cheap replica of Apple's iOS.

It features a 6.7-inch FHD+ Infinity-U display with 2400×1080 pixels resolution and a 20:9 widescreen aspect ratio justifying the ‘cinematic experience’ that the brand boasts.
